A couple of weeks ago I crossed the border to Norfolk to visit Escape Hunt in Norwich. The team kindly invited me to join them in celebrating their first year in the city. My friends and I went along to experience Alice in Puzzleland, an escape room based on Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.
Escape Hunt is conveniently situated in Chantry Place (formerly known as Chapelfield Shopping Centre). Parking is a breeze, and there are plenty of places nearby to go to dinner before or after (if you manage to escape, of course!).
There are a number of different game rooms to try, including virtual reality and outdoor options. We were very excited to try out Alice in Puzzleland – and we weren’t disappointed!
The fun and friendly game room staff told us the rules and gave us some dressing up props before we headed in. We had 1 hour to help the Mad Hatter escape before the Queen of Hearts chopped off our heads!
The escape room itself was decorated in a suitably fantastic way with many hidden details and interactive elements. If we needed a clue, we could ring a bell to alert the Cheshire Cat who could give us a hint. I won’t give too much away but there were so many clever twists and turns to the story. We weren’t sure we were going to save the Mat Hatter in time…but we suddenly got it together and escaped with 12 minutes to spare…phew!
We all had an absolute blast – I haven’t laughed that much AGES! It was a great thing to do with our friends in real life after being apart for so long during the pandemic. We’ve already said we want to go back to try another room at Escape Hunt very soon!
A big shout out to the Escape Hunt staff who were fantastic. They made the game even more enjoyable and let us take LOADS of photos at the end. Thank you!
