Escape rooms company finds key to three new sites with "growing strength"

An international escape rooms company has today announced progress in the opening of three new UK sites as part of its ongoing expansion.

Escape Hunt, which is based in London, has confirmed that its tenth UK owner-operated site will open later this week (23 September) in Norwich.

It also reported that work on its eleventh site, in Basingstoke, is “substantially complete”, and is set to open in October this year.

In wake of the openings, the company has also announced that it has signed contracts for a twelfth site, which will be based in Cheltenham.

Richard Harpham, Escape Hunt’s CEO, commented: “We are delighted to be opening our latest site in Norwich which has a prime position in the Intu Centre.

“Whilst the work had to be delayed due to Covid-19, the subsequent fit-out has been completed to a high standard and we are confident the public will love it!

“Work at Basingstoke is now also substantially complete and the site is similarly positioned in a prime location in the town and we are confident it will be well received.

“We are delighted to have completed contracts for our next site at the Brewery Quarter in Cheltenham.

“In anticipation of signing, we pre-ordered games for delivery and are pleased that games have been delivered to site ready to be installed.

“We look forward to providing further details on its opening in due course.

“This progress represents important steps in the execution of our key strategic priority to increase our UK owner-operated footprint.

“In each case we have been able to secure a prime retail site on favourable terms which is testament to the growing strength of our proposition and the opportunity afforded by the current retail property environment.”
