Brisbane Weekender tested out one of Brisbane’s newest entertainment activities, Escape Hunt.
Ranked in Tripadvisor’s top 5 Brisbane activities, Escape Hunt is a thrilling escape the room experience.
Participants play the part of a London detective, and engage with historically based storylines to solve mysteries and escape the room.
Escaping involves problem solving, quick thinking, and teamwork. Participants have 1 hour to escape the room in a standard game, though teams on the leader board have completed the puzzles in under 40 minutes.
Queensland is the latest state to open Escape Hunt locations, with sites in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast.
Decked out in furniture and decorations from the early 20th century, the dimly lit foyer sets the mood for your adventure. The Brisbane store also has a 15 minute game set in a caravan.
According to Paul, one of the franchisees, ‘we believe we’re the first people to put an escape game on wheels.’
With their new mobile game, the team plans to bring Escape Hunt to various events over the next year.
In their 3 months, the Brisbane branch has had over 900 hours of gameplay and seen 2300 people play.
Escape Hunt is set up to become one of Brisbane’s most exciting and unique entertainment options, and is a great activity for participants of all ages.
