How do I play The Escape Hunt Experience? To answer this now would give away the whole surprise so let’s just say it is one of the most exhilarating ways to spend 90 minutes with your friends. The adventure lasts for 60 minutes, but you should arrive a little before for your briefing and afterwards we offer you tea and a time for feedback and discussion so allow 90 minutes in total (or more if you want to hang out with us). The adventure itself involves escaping from a room where a mystery has taken place.  Solve the mystery and escape. Sounds simple?  Just try us!

So how long does the adventure last? Each adventure is 60 minutes long and you need to arrive a little before for the briefing. Afterwards, the de-briefing, discussion and photo-taking may take a while but you are free to hang around in our comfortable lounge area, drink tea and chat with our friendly game masters.

Can I play on my own? Our games are all designed for 2–6 players and these are the recommended numbers of players but if you really want to play alone you can! We are happy to accommodate you as a solo player, but remember it will be hard work!  It is also a lot of extra work for our game masters so we need to still charge our minimum rate of 2 players.

So how many people should play? We have tested all sorts of numbers but the ideal is a group of 2–6 players.  For this reason we are strict about these team sizes now as we want to ensure each and every Escape Hunt experience is excellent.

Do we need to be really strong?  Physical strength is not needed at all. We have designed our adventures to be as accessible for the most petite person to a body builder. You need skills other than brawn like good searching skills and logical reasoning.

Are there any age limits for Escape Hunt? We have tried the adventures with all ages and it is equally enjoyable for all age groups. For practical reasons, since this is a group activity and we need a certain level of maturity, we limit the minimum age to 7 years old but there is no maximum age. We love kids, but this is an adult game and therefore younger children might not really enjoy it. No escape game in the world allows children and we have dropped the minimum age as low as we can to 7 years, but do contact us if you have younger children with you and we can try to work something out.

Can a handicapped or wheelchair-bound person play the adventure too? Yes, our adventures are even handicapped friendly. For reasons of safety and practicality, we only allow one person in a wheelchair to take part in each group as they need able-bodied helpers but there is no reason why they should not enjoy the experience as well. All our doors have been designed to be wide enough.

Do I need to use English? Yes, the whole The Escape Hunt Experience concept is English of course, but this is Asia so we run the adventure in Chinese as well. As a global enterprise we need to operate on an international level in one language, hence the English but we respect local culture and translate into the local languages, in this case, Chinese. The benefit of the multi-language game-play is that you do NOT need to all be fluent in English to play as a team as some members can read the English clues and others the other language ones.

So, can we play in the Chinese language? Yes, we run it in Chinese so if you are good adventurers, you will do well regardless of your English ability. Most of our Game Masters speak fluent Chinese as well as English…

Will it be too difficult for me? It all depends upon how well you follow the brief, work in a team and put your best effort into the adventure.  Each adventure is designed to be not easy, but not impossible, so you have every chance to escape!  Our Game Masters are there to help you with various clues if you require their assistance.

What if I don’t “escape”? Then you and your team will be eaten alive. Only kidding! You will still enjoy yourself whether you escape or not; we will make sure of that!

What if I don’t enjoy myself? We take very possible care to ensure that your experience with us is highly enjoyable and meets your expectations. If however in the unlikely event we fail to provide you with the five star experience we promise, we won’t hesitate to refund your payment in full. We pride ourselves on exceptional customer service and with us the customer is always right so we will deal with any issue you might encounter and do whatever it takes to ensure you had an excellent experience.

Do I need to wear any special clothes or bring anything? Please come in your usual clothes as we do not require any physical activity out of the ordinary. It is your brain we are after so please make sure you bring that! Otherwise, we provide everything.

Can I come back and play again? Absolutely. We have three entirely different adventures and we plan to change the adventures at regular intervals so you’ll be able to test your skills over and over again.  If you have any kind of game rooms that you would like to see designed, speak to us about it and we might just be able to work something out.
