The Escape Hunt Experience is an adventure based on the classic ‘escape the room’ games now popular in many places across the globe. Originally these were online point-and-click computer games such as Myst and Crimson Room. They were then made into real life games in Japan around 2007. Players are locked in a simple room with objects and feel they are inside a computer game while searching for clues and solving puzzles trying to escape.
The Escape Hunt Experience boasts that it offers a “true experience, like a mini theme park where you are transported back over 100 years and play the part of a famous London detective with your colleagues trying to solve a murder mystery”. As a team you play against the clock in one of the rooms to find the killer’s identity and so make your escape. The adventures last around 90 minutes, as after the 60 minute game you can chat about your experience in our lounge area over a cup of tea and then dress up in period costume for photos.
This experience is unusual in that you don’t have to be a crowd to play – it’s available from only two players in a private room with your own dedicated Game Master to play with you. You will need to use all your skills and intellect combined with nerves of steel to solve a great mystery. With your team, you hunt for clues and solve puzzles to escape from the room. You have one hour to do so, or else… you could be trapped inside forever!
The venue also offers team building (if you’re fed up with paintball in the mud) and also corporate events.
So who is this experience aimed at? The Escape Hunt Experience is aimed at anyone who likes puzzles. The adventures have been intentionally designed to appeal to different age groups, genders and backgrounds. Equal numbers of tourists, expats and Belgian citizens appear to enjoy the game.
