When The Escape Hunt Experience opened in July 2013 in Central Bangkok as South East Asia’s first “escape the room” game, it quickly became the Number 1 Attraction on TripAdvisor for tourists. It also gained a huge following amongst locals in Thailand with an active online community including over 50,000 followers on Facebook. escape hunt 1

The Escape Hunt Experience was a welcome addition to daytime activities in Bangkok and has grown steadily in popularity amongst all ages and backgrounds. It also runs an extremely successful corporate team building division using the same challenging games for company improvement and outings.

One year on, 2014 sees The Escape Hunt Experience as the global leader in “escape the room” activities with 12 branches already signed all around the world in Europe, Asia and the USA, 30 planned for the end of 2014 and 100 by the end of 2015. 2014 will also take them into new and innovative areas of sports and other entertainment with the option to play games in all manner of different locations as well as mobile apps.

Originating in Japan, players started creating simple real-life rooms from which they tried to escape and this has evolved into a highly developed and sophisticated combination of clue-hunting and puzzle-solving in order to “escape the room”.

These games have grown in popularity hugely around the world to a point where we are now opening escape game centers everywhere from Singapore to London, Bali to Amsterdam. Such is the rising popularity of this entertainment concept that it is likely the fastest growing entertainment sector in the world right now. As the global leader with branches opening all the time, The Escape Hunt Experience takes the whole genre to a new unique level with its unique proposition of themed rooms, detective stories and a theme park experience. The experience is now far more than a simple escape game!

Facing their most challenging crime scene, the only way to escape from the room is to find all the clues and solve all the puzzles before the clock stops after 60 minutes. Aimed to appeal to young and old, tourists and locals, couples and large groups, teams of between 2 and 5 people will be thrilled to escape from the themed room with the help of our dedicated “game master” who plays with the customers.

There is also time after to dress up for photos in the costumes and enjoy a nice cup of tea in their luxury lounges. There are many different themes and games change every 6-9 months. The Escape Hunt Experience lasts a total of 1 hour and 45 minutes including the briefing and de-briefing and can be run in English and/other languages using a state-of-the-art IT system and attentive multi-lingual staff.

The Escape Hunt Experience is now opening on Koh Samui. At the time of writing, the Bangkok based head office is looking for a local franchise partner and premises so you should get in touch if you are interested in running this amazing business!!!
