Who can play the Escape Hunt Experience? Well, pretty much everyone!
Are there any age restrictions 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 really will not enjoy it. Also, there must be at least one player of over 16 years of age playing in the room.
Can I play on my own? Our games are all designed for 2–5 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 still need to 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 2–5 players. For this reason we are quite strict about these team sizes now as we want to ensure that each and every Escape Hunt experience is excellent.
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 to accommodate a wheelchair.
