For many years online “escape games” have been a popular genre for gaming enthusiasts. Originating in Japan, players started with simple rooms from which they tried to escape and evolved the idea into a highly developed and sophisticated combination of clue-hunting and puzzle-solving in order to “escape from the room”…
These game soon became real-life rooms and the wave of popularity swept across the US and Europe to a point where there are now escape game rooms everywhere from San Francisco to London, Hong Kong to Barcelona. Such is the rising popularity of this entertainment concept that the game centre in London is ranked as number 1 from over 900 Things To Do in London on TripAdvisor with award winning success.
Escape Hunt takes this idea to a new and unique level integrating the concept of escape game rooms with the exciting adventure theme of detectives solving a murder mystery. As Bangkok and South East Asia’s first escape game, Escape Hunt is a unique and versatile attraction. Aimed to appeal to Western and Asian minds, young and old, tourists and locals, teams of between 2 and 5 people need to escape from a themed room with the help of a dedicated “game master” who watches from outside over CCTV and assists as required.
Playing the part of Shylock or Charlotte Barnes and their team of detectives, the group will be transported back 100 years to early 20th century Bangkok. Facing their most challenging murder mystery, the only way to escape from the room is to find all the clues and solve all the puzzles before the clock stops after 60 minutes. There are 4 different rooms split into Chinese and English story lines but all share the same opulent Bangkok setting on the Chao Phraya river, ghosts and mystery. All games last a total of 1 hour and 45 minutes including the briefing and de-briefing and can be run in English, Thai, Japanese or Chinese using our state-of-the-art IT system and multi-lingual staff.
