Strange, esoteric, unfamiliar, paranormal: don't be scared to explore the unknown, you'll remember the experience for a long time... Uncover the secrets of mystical escape rooms in Oxford!
We came here as a family after redeeming a voucher we received for Christmas. We chose the hostage hotel room and, although it was basic compared to other escape rooms I have completed, we had a lot of fun escaping.Claire G
Alice was incredibly welcoming and helpful, and was prompt with giving clues when asked. Would definitely return in future so thank you.
As a family group of four, we found this experience very challenging. We've played other escape rooms in other venues and this one is by far the hardest we've tried so far. The venue is well laid out and the staff are attentive. The game was well explained and all the appropriate safety instructions were told to us before we entered the room.v10vegan
A thoroughly enjoyable experience. We completed their latest and most difficult game at the time..... Hostel Hostage.
This was so much fun and a great night out for the family. The room was a good level of challenge for 3 adults and two teens and plenty of room for 5 of us. The staff are enthusiastic and add to the excitement. Will definitely be back to do another.Michelle
Had a great afternoon at Escape Hunt Oxford today. We did the outdoor Magical Portal game with 4 youngsters age 22-11. Everyone gave it 10/10 at the end and were over the moon to discover they were top of the leader board wirh 20 minutes to spare. Just the right level of challenge without being frustrating or too easy given the age range and kept everyone focused throughout. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, highly recommended to visitors and locals to Oxford.Claire
Great fun. Rooms are designed really well. Managed to solve the puzzles even when we completly missed the biggest clue at the beginning that would have shaved 10 minutes off our time! looking forward to going againHelen
As an escape room virgin, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect when friends decided to book an ‘adventure’ for us all as part of a university reunion. But I needn’t have worried. Set on the top floor of the reimagined Westgate Centre in the heart of town, the Oxford branch of Escape Hunt offers some wonderful views of the university’s classical spires as you approach the venue. It proves a stark contrast once you get inside where clean lines, smart fittings and electronic tablet registration shouts modern comfort.Chris
Visitors to Escape Hunt have a decent choice of escape scenarios: from the delights of Alice in Wonderland to the thrills of the Wild West with a good measure of Doctor Who magic thrown in. Soft drinks (for a small price), Magic Eye optical illusion books or traditional Jenga blocks are at your disposal while you wait for your room to be ready. And for those who might be claustrophobic or for whom the idea of spending an hour trapped in close confines with their nearest and dearest induces a sense of panic, an impressive and much-welcomes health and safety briefing and panic button offers much-needed relief.
And so to the escape room itself. The hosts are welcoming, explaining the rules in character to get you in the mood for what lies ahead. The rooms themselves are superbly appointed and the games are genuinely fun and sufficiently taxing to make your brain work. There are enough distractions to keep you occupied as you wander down blind allies, and genuine mini triumphs each time you - or a member of your team - solves a clue.
The team skilfully inject time updates, that on the one hand let you know how far you’re progressing and - on the other - add pressure and create jeopardy. The result is an hour of fun that has you laughing, cursing, thinking and bonding no matter what age you are. Like I said in the introduction - you’re never too old to have fun!
