Escape Hunt plc reveals plans for Doctor Who-themed ‘escape rooms’
Leisure operator Escape Hunt plc has revealed plans to open Doctor Who-themed ‘escape rooms’ throughout the UK.
The Lambeth-headquartered company signed an exclusive five-year deal with the BBC to secure the license.
Escape Hunt will open the first of the rooms in December, following the launch of the new Doctor Who TV series this autumn.
It will then roll the concept out across the UK over the next three years.
Escape Hunt CEO Richard Harpham said: “Following the success of our original Escape Hunt games, we are thrilled to be partnering with BBC Studios to create Doctor Who – The Live Escape Game.
“Going on an Escape Hunt is all about stepping into and experiencing new worlds so strength in different genres is absolutely key to our content strategy.”
He continued: “Doctor Who represents the very best in British action adventure and has a loyal and dedicated fanbase that spans all generations.
“We look forward to bringing the show to life for all fans in its first ever live escape game experience at Escape Hunt venues across the UK.”
