Today is the first day that tickets for the Doctor Who Escape Hunt are on sale. And if you were out and about in Birmingham or Leeds, you had to run from the Cybermen that you’d battle in the new adventure game.
In the centre of the city one of the Doctor’s oldest foes commanded a barge on the canal at Gas Street Basin in Birmingham and processed to threaten unsuspecting Christmas shoppers at Birmingham Bullring shopping centre with “Upgrades” They have since been seen heading straight for Leeds City Centre, frightening local commuters in the process.
Fans have been eagerly been awaiting for details on the BBC Studios and Escape Hunt Doctor Who-themed live escape game, which will be playable at Escape Hunt venues across the country from early 2019.
What is Escape Hunt?
Think of 60 minutes of pure fun where you and your friends work together as a team to escape from a locked room with a bunch of Doctor Who themed clues to help you on your way. You are right in the middle of your own adventure where you experience all the action, terror and buzz of life on the TARDIS.
Teams of up to six become the Doctor’s new friends and are transported into the future, to the offices of ChronosCorp HQ, where eccentric billionaire Alastair Montague’s efforts to develop commercial time travel have caused a tear in the fabric of space and time, a tear which the Cyberman will use to attack Earth!
Richard Harpham, CEO Escape Hunt plc, says: “We are thrilled that tickets are now on sale and fans can start booking to be the first to play the game in January. We are extremely proud of Worlds Collide and look forward to giving fans a unique Doctor Who escape game experience.”
Mat Way, Global Director, Live Entertainment at BBC Studios, says: ‘We’re very excited to be revealing details of the very first official Doctor Who escape game in collaboration with Escape Hunt. We used to hide behind the sofa when the Cybermen appeared on TV, it’s amazing that fans will soon be able to encounter them face to face.’
