Escape a Dalek! In Birmingham, Reading, Norwich or Basingstoke…

Doctor Who - A Dalek Awakens Following up on the success of Doctor Who: Worlds Collide, BBC Studios and Escape Hunt have announced a new Doctor Who escape room, Doctor Who: A Dalek Awakens, available to pre-book now at Escape Hunt Reading and Birmingham Resorts World.

Several other venues, including Escape Hunt Norwich and Basingstoke, will also feature the new challenge later this year.

Step on board a doomed spaceship, where a rogue Dalek has tapped into the power system, in an attempt to recharge its weapons. Should the Doctor’s most feared enemy be successful, it will exterminate all in its path.

As the Doctor’s friends, you must prevent this catastrophe. Shutting down the ship’s power core will ensure the Dalek cannot activate its weapons. However, the ship’s life support systems rely on the same energy source, meaning that shutting down the power would result in the death of all 10,000 passengers.

Teams of up to six are given 60 minutes to solve the puzzles, resolve this impossible situation and prevent catastrophe. Take too long and your destination will be extermination!

“We are delighted to be creating a second game, Doctor Who: A Dalek Awakens, with BBC Studios following the success of our first game with them, Doctor Who: Worlds Collide,” commented Richard Harpham, CEO Escape Hunt PLC.

Doctor Who has a loyal and dedicated fanbase which we have seen from the success of our first game, so to be able to bring some variety to the public with a brand new and innovative game centred around the iconic Dalek characters is an exciting prospect for Escape Hunt.

“We look forward to bringing the new game to life at Escape Hunt venues across the UK.”

Escape Hunt began life in 2013 when the company opened its first branch in Bangkok. Inspired by great online computer games such as Myst and Crimson Room, they set out to create something utterly different but equally compelling. The result is an immersive experience, where Escape Hunters are transported to another era to solve a mind-twisting mystery created by Escape Hunt Studios – our global game design team.

The company has branches across the globe, from Buenos Aires to Birmingham and Melbourne to Miami, with more opening all the time, with escape rooms in every continent (well, almost – apparently Antarctica’s penguins aren’t interested). They continue to grow through a network of franchises.
