We want all customers and staff to feel as safe as possible on our adventures and as such we ask that you wear a mask while in our venues. For your benefit, we will continue to have disposable masks available for customers at our venues as well as multiple hand sanitiser points.

Think of Escape Hunt as the closest you’re likely to get to starring in a brilliantly plotted escape movie. You and your teammates get locked in a themed room and have to find and solve a series of clues in order to escape. The pressure’s on, the clock’s ticking, the adrenaline’s pumping. Escape Hunt isn’t something you watch, it’s something you experience – right in the heart of the action. We make you earn your freedom, throwing all manner of devious and dastardly red herrings, dead ends and misdirections your way. It’s completely immersive, utterly addictive and totally entertaining. After Escape Hunt, other entertainment just feels flat.
The whole experience lasts around 90 minutes. You’ll spend around 60 minutes in the room (in fact that’s the maximum time you’ve got in which to escape). Before that there’s a quick briefing to explain everything, and afterwards we invite you and your group to enjoy our lounge, in-house bar and photo opportunity space.
We’re open 7 days a week, Monday – Sunday, from 10am until 10pm.
We think our games are ideal for groups of between two and six. If you’ve more than six people who want to play then why not split into two teams and have a friendly – or indeed unfriendly – head to head competition?
All our Escape Hunt games are incredibly exciting and utterly immersive, so it’s impossible for us to say. Perhaps the best solution is to play them all!
The headsets we use have plenty of room for your glasses to fit underneath so feel free to keep them on during gameplay.
We have purposefully chosen a very advanced virtual reality software to try and reduce the likelihood that you will experience motion sickness or dizziness while playing the game. However, as with any motion-related activity, in rare circumstances some people might be susceptible to unexpected side effects whilst playing. Your dedicated Games Master will be keeping an eye on you throughout the game and will be able to help immediately should this occur.
Our virtual reality adventures last for up to 45 minutes. We would recommend allowing an hour and a quarter for the whole experience, which includes a briefing beforehand and of course, 45 mins of epic gameplay. Afterwards, we invite you to sit back and enjoy our premium lounge and in-house bar.
Our Virtual Reality game is essentially a virtual escape room. You will each be kitted out with a wireless headset and backpack and transported to a virtual world, with you at its centre. Work together as a team, find and solve a series of clues and complete your mission. The virtual reality game is a fully immersive, interactive, 3D escape game experience. Sound good? We think so!
The VR game experience is open to teams of 2-4 players.
Remote play allows friends, family and colleagues to come together and play Escape Hunt’s physical escape rooms from their own homes. You will play the game using Zoom, a free, secure online video conferencing system. During the game, you will control a real life avatar using verbal commands. What they see is what you will see. You will use verbal commands to move them around the room, find hidden clues, solve puzzles, and see if you can escape before time runs out!
The whole experience lasts around 70 minutes. Exactly like in our physical rooms, you’ll spend around 60 minutes instructing the avatar in the room (in fact that’s the maximum time you’ve got in which to escape). Before that there’s a quick briefing to explain everything. We advise that you join your Zoom call at least 5 minutes before your scheduled booking time to make sure your microphone and camera are working.
You will need an internet connection and a desktop/laptop device (phones/tablets can be used, but are not recommended due to screen size). You will need to download Zoom ahead of your slot and we also advise that you have some paper and pen on hand to jot down notes of things you might spot in the room along the way!
Not at all! All players can be in the same household using the same device or players can be in different households each dialling into the Zoom call on different devices.
Our indoor escape room games cost £28 per person for groups of 2-3 players, and £22 per person for groups of 4-6 players.
Our outdoor games cost £22.50 per person for 2 players, £20 per person for 3 players and £15 per person for 4 players.
Our Virtual Reality adventures cost £25 per person for groups of between 2 – 4 players.
All of our Escape Rooms are rated PG (8+) for up to 6 people unless stated otherwise and our VR games are rated 12+ for groups of up to 4. Our Outdoor Games are suitable for ages 8 and up for teams of up to 4 people.
All under 16s must be accompanied during the game by at least one paying adult aged 18 or over.

Absolutely. Our games rooms aren’t particularly confined, and our games masters are always on hand to release you the moment you want to leave.
