Can our company do team building here? Absolutely. We have a separate division dedicated especially to corporate and special events. Please contact us for details of a private corporate event in our adventure base in Sydney or a themed event at your workplace. In our games center we specialize in team building exercises by playing the games first as groups and then seminar sessions afterwards to build on corporate objectives such as ice breaking, group puzzles, IQ The Escape Hunt Experience – Escape The Room In Barcelona, Spain, evaluation as well as having fun!
What kind of corporate events can we do? The idea is learning through play. We aim to assess, discuss, analyse and teach. We do all of the above for teamwork, leadership, personal motivation, team structure, empowerment, initiative building, ongoing corporate and individual improvement. We use game-play to challenge people individually and in group settings.
We observe the individual and group interaction and provide profiling based on this and subsequent seminar discussion. We set discussion tasks and assess ability to solve these real world tasks also. Finally, we discuss the findings at individual and management levels and provide a verbal and written assessment (output) as required. All work is based on a combination of sound organizational psychology principles and practical change management tools.
What is the best program? Our experience shows that the ideal program is a combination of escape game play followed by group work. This is the only format we offer now. This can be adapted for group sizes between 10 and 60, for different times of the day and to suit corporate needs, but follows the following format for a typical 3 hour event:
How many people can you accommodate? We handle group sizes from 10 to 100 and regular groups sizes are 20, 40, 60 for example. Our six game rooms can accommodate up to 36 people at a time. If you have more than 36 people, we rotate the guests through different phases.
What is all this based on? Our founder is a qualified psychologist who specialized and practiced in organizational (work) psychology. He has used these skills coupled with a broad commercial background to consult for many companies over his career. He brings these skills to our Escape Hunt corporate challenges to make something truly unique.
How can we organize our corporate event? We deal with our corporate clients directly. We prefer to deal directly with you rather than via a travel agent or event planner. In our experience, these third parties cannot communicate the options effectively and so much detail gets lost. For this reason, we strongly urge you to contact us directly.
Who have you worked with recently? Our Bangkok venue runs around 2–3 corporate events each week and here is some recent client feedback on the Escape Hunt Experience:
“Fantastic idea and a great team building event. The team at The Escape Hunt tailored an experience for my Senior Executive Team at work and it was simply outstanding. Unfortunately I cannot say too much about the experience itself as that would spoil it but I can say that it was good fun, challenging and insightful. Thoroughly recommend – Paul and his team of game hosts were wonderful. In fact I cannot wait to return with my family..” – Jonathan Walker, Country President, AstraZeneca, Thailand.
“The team really enjoyed the team building. It was a lot of fun and really useful for us as a whole in getting to know each other, and learn about individuals personalities outside of the office…” – Alicia P. T. McKenzie, Chief Operating Officer, Footsteps Worldwide, Thailand.
“Definitely Encourages teamwork and clue solving. It was very a good experience. The staffs were extremely helpful, and the setup was well designed. Our group (all first timers) had a lot of fun! The challenge was reasonable and it is an activity which everyone can enjoy! A good bonding session within the team and last but not least, really great heart-racing fun, and an excellent exercise for the brain too! We will definitely recommend it to other team/family/friend…” – Doris Toh, Shell Oil (Marina Project), Singapore.
“Warm regards to Paul and the Escape Hunt Team. I just wanted to highlight what a great afternoon we had at Escape Hunt Experience Bangkok. It was the culmination for us, of a 3 day sales conference, which focused on product knowledge and team bonding as our staff are located as far away as Bali, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta and Phuket as well as the regional office in Bangkok. So after a very concentrated 3 days the Escape Hunt Experience was exactly what we needed to let the team have a great time and face a challenge that was out of their normal experience. The team responded so well and the feedback at the end of the experience focused on our strengths and made us reflect how we can apply that in our daily roles. The experience is very well designed and even though we are a diverse group of cultures it allowed us all to participate and contribute to solving the murder. We had 12 in the team which we split into 4 groups and all came out bubbling with enthusiasm even if the clock beat some groups. So I would have no hesitation in recommending the Escape Hunt Experience to any corporate business that wants to improve problem solving and teamwork in their organisation its great value with even better outcomes…” – Glenn Andrews, Sales & Marketing Director Asia, Site Minder, Asia.

Why play The Escape Hunt Experience? The Escape Hunt Experience is designed to be one of the most fun ways you will ever find to spend 90 minutes of your time with your friends, colleagues or partner. It is also many other things – educational, didactic, bonding, inspirational, exhilarating, spontaneous, challenging and much more. You will learn a lot about yourself and the rest of your team in a very short period of time and most of all have a great deal of fun. We love seeing the looks of excitement and satisfaction on our guests faces when they escape!
Is The Escape Hunt Experience really that special? We think so. Ultimately, how successful we are is a result of how well we do our job. There is nothing like our concept in this part of the world. We are also trying to do it to the utmost of our abilities offering the ultimate in personalized 5 star service and we are confident you will find it one of the most unique and interesting experiences of your lives.
Is The Escape Hunt Experience something I will remember? Absolutely. We are sure that the adventure itself will stay in your mind for a long time and we help you retain those memories by taking photos of your team to post online for your complimentary download (with your permission of course) and you can purchase merchandise and outfits as memorabilia as well.
What adventures are available at The Escape Hunt Experience? We have six rooms at Escape Hunt Barcelona split into three different adventures or themes. Each has an exciting and different storyline, theme and decor. Each adventure has an entirely different set of puzzles and codes so you can come back to play our other rooms later and still enjoy the experience. The difficulty level is the same for all rooms.
Can we play against each other in different adventures? Our six game rooms are separate but are “twinned” into three pairs with the same mystery to solve to allow for two teams to compete against each other. This way you can book as a group of up to 12 people, split into two groups and then compete against each other. So if you have the urge to compete, try it, it’s great fun as we start the countdown timer at exactly the same moment – up to 36 people!
When can I play The Escape Hunt Experience? We plan on opening the Barcelona venue early in 2015 (exact date in January to be confirmed). We will be open every day of the year with 8 time slots a day from 9:30am until 9:30pm. You can play whenever we have free slots by booking online.
What hours are you open? We are open from 9.30am until 11pm, 7 days a week. Our first adventure starts each day at 9:30am and the last at 9:30pm. We close after de-briefing and serving drinks to the last adventurers around 11pm.
What if I arrive late? This is a LIVE adventure concept so unfortunately if you arrive late, your game will have to start without you or your game time will need to be reduced. It is really important to arrive on time for your benefit and for the benefit of your fellow adventurers too as we have games after your game.
Do I need to book in advance? Yes, we operate a sophisticated booking and calendar system here on our website and via Facebook. Bookings always fill up quickly, so be sure to check regularly as we open new booking periods daily. All our promotions and discounts are ONLY available online! Therefore, we highly recommend booking online to get the slot you want.
How do I book? Booking is really simple. Go to our Bookings section and follow these simple steps:
1. Choose your group size. Each rooms is designed for 2–6 players. If your group size is bigger – just book two or more rooms and compete against one another. You will start at the same time and play against each other.
2. Choose your room theme. There is a description on the booking site and more information in our FAQs here on another page but all games are great to play.
3. Choose your preferred date and time. By clicking on all of the games you get more choice of date and time. The chances are you will find a free slot on one of the rooms so check them all one by one!
4. Confirm the game and pay. You should have no problems paying either by credit card or PayPal using our online system and the payment system from PayPal but if you have any problems please let us know by contacting us via email or phone.
Important notes: to book multiple rooms select them one by one then pay together at checkout. To book more than 4 months ahead, contact us. If you encounter any problems, please contact us.
Can I just turn up and play with friends? There may be a limited number of game slots each day for last minute bookings and walk-ins. You will need to arrive as early as possible on the day and reserve for later that day as these will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Alternatively, you might be lucky if you just turn up, but it is unlikely during busy periods. We STRONGLY recommend booking!
How do I play The Escape Hunt Experience? To answer this now would give away the whole surprise, so let’s just say it is one of the most exhilarating ways to spend 90 minutes with your friends. The adventure lasts for 60 minutes, but you should arrive 15 minutes before for your briefing and afterwards we offer you refreshments and time for feedback and discussion, so allow 90 minutes in total (or more if you want to just hang out with us). The adventure itself involves escaping from a room where a crime has been committed. Solve the mystery and escape. Sounds simple? Just try!
So how many people should play? We have tested all sorts of numbers but the ideal is a group of 2–5 players.
Can I compete against my friends? Of course, each of our three adventures comes in a set of two identical rooms. Just book the same adventure at the same time (two bookings needed) and see who comes out first.
Do we need to be really strong? Physical strength is not needed at all. We have designed our adventures to be as accessible for the most petite person to a body builder and every age group. You need skills other than brawn like good searching skills and logical reasoning. Moving our solid wood furniture is not required…
Are there any age limits for Escape Hunt? We have tried the adventures with all ages and it is equally enjoyable for all age groups. For practical reasons, since this is a group activity and we need a certain level of maturity, we limit the minimum age to 7 years old but there is no maximum age. We love kids, but this is an adult game and therefore younger children really will not really enjoy it or have the critical thinking skills required. No escape game in the world allows children and we have dropped the minimum age as low as we can to 7 years, but we have to be very strict and say no children below 7 years of age will be admitted at all. Also, there must be at least one player of over 16 years of age playing in the room.
Can a disabled or wheelchair-bound person play the adventure too? Yes, our adventures are accessible for everyone, provided they are accompanied by able-bodied team members. For reasons of safety and practicality, we only allow one person in a wheelchair to take part in each group as they need able-bodied helpers, but there is no reason why they should not enjoy the experience as well. All our doors have been designed to be wide enough for wheelchair access.
Will it be too difficult for me? It all depends on how well you follow the brief, work in a team and put your best effort into the adventure. Each adventure is designed to not be easy but not impossible, so you have every chance to escape! Our Game Masters are there to help you when you need it.
What if I don’t “escape”? Then you and your team will be eaten alive. Only kidding! You will still enjoy yourself whether you escape or not; we will make sure of that.
What if I don’t enjoy myself? We take very possible care to ensure that your experience with us is highly enjoyable and meets your expectations. If in the unlikely event we fail to provide you with the five star experience we promise, we will not hesitate to refund your payment in full. We pride ourselves on exceptional customer service and with us the customer is always right so we will deal with any issue you might encounter and do whatever it takes to ensure you had an excellent experience.
Do I need to wear any special clothes or bring anything? Please come in your usual clothes as we do not require any physical activity out of the ordinary. It is your brain we are after so please make sure you bring that! Otherwise, we provide everything.
Can I come back and play again? Absolutely. We have three entirely different adventures and we change the adventures at regular intervals so you’ll be able to test your skills over and over again.

Can you give me a 1 minute introduction to The Escape Hunt Experience?
Sure. The Escape Hunt Experience is a unique adventure based on the classic “escape the room” online games now popular in many countries around the world. Originally, these were online point and click computer games such as Myst and Crimson Room. They were then made into real life games in Japan around 2007. Players are locked in a simple room with objects and little decoration and feel like being inside a computer game while searching for clues and solving puzzles trying to escape.
This idea spread to other places and The Escape Hunt Experience is proud to take inspiration from these great games yet offer something totally unique. We offer a true “experience” like a mini theme park where you are transported back over 100 years and play the part of a famous detective with your friends or colleagues trying to solve a mystery. As a team, you play against the clock in one of our rooms to find the guilty suspect’s identity and find your escape. Our adventures last around 90 minutes, as after the 60 minute game you can chat about your experience in our luxurious lounge area over a cool drink or nice cup of tea and then dress up in period costume for photos.
Our experience is unique and unlike any other interactive adventure game anywhere in the world. We offer many unique features such as our games are available to closed groups from 2 players up to 6 players maximum in your own private room. Our game masters are here to play with you and help you where needed and then of course all the post-game entertainment is truly an experience in its own right.
When our Barcelona venue opens (plannned for December 2014) we will be open 7 days a week, 365 days a year with our first game at 10am and the last game at 9pm every day. We will take groups from 2-6 players or more players can play against each other in 2 identical rooms. We will also be hosting fantastic corporate events. Prices vary by group size. Players must be at least 7 years old and need to be accompanied by an adult if they are between 7-16 years old. Escape Hunt is fantastic fun for friends, family groups, corporate groups and all ability levels, giving you memories you will treasure for many years!
Bangkok is our first venue globally and still our flagship store in Asia and is ranked as the number 1 attraction on TripAdvisor in Bangkok.
We are in the process of opening in many other cities around the world. Check our global site for more details of a venue near you (www.escapehunt.com).

Who developed The Escape Hunt Experience? The Escape Hunt Experience is the brain-child of a UK expatriate, Mr. Paul Bart MA MBA, who has lived many years in Asia and is based in Bangkok. In his long career, Paul has been a marketeer, business consultant and entrepreneur in several fields.
He decided to launch The Escape Hunt Experience because he saw a real opportunity to create something highly original and beneficial to all walks of society. Being based in Bangkok and seeing a lack of indoor daytime entertainment, he launched the concept there first. Seeing the way “experiential entertainment” is taking off around the world, he decided early on to build the business as a highly scalable one which would translate to every local culture around the world. The Escape Hunt Experience is unique in style and concept and the first “escape game” of its kind in Thailand and South East Asia and continues to set new standards around the world as it grows into a global branch network.
Is Escape Hunt original? The Escape Hunt Experience is highly original and whilst it is inspired by famous names, The Escape Hunt Experience is very different because it is the only game in the world with a period feel, detective teams and an exciting interactive storyline. When you add the unique personal service of our Games Masters and the post-game experience of refreshments and photos in outfits, it is truly unique…
What makes The Escape Hunt Experience so special as an adventure? There are many things you can do with your time these days, but none are as special as The Escape Hunt Experience because it is fun yet safe, educational yet light-hearted, challenging yet cooperative, competitive yet relaxing – the list goes on.
How does The Escape Hunt Experience differ from other “escape games” I have seen online? Firstly, Escape Hunt is LIVE – that means no online play and all real-time action. You are IN the game! Secondly, the concept and execution is beyond anything you will ever see elsewhere, we promise.
The Escape Hunt Experience is a fantastic global entertainment franchise offering unique “escape the room” adventures to the public and corporate clients all over the world. We have branches everywhere from Cleveland to Singapore, Perth to Barcelona and we are the acknowledged global leaders in this fast growing entertainment industry.
