There’s a bunch of new sleuths in town

Here’s your chance to solve clues that, in the words of Alice, get “curioser and curioser”. Let’s see you and mates rise to the challenge of solving riddles and encounter wacky and playful tasks. All the while getting to the bottom of mysterious intrigue at the core of Wonderland. 

This once-in-a-lifetime, not to be missed event draws you in and gets your creative juices flowing. Assemble your crew – you need just one ticket for a team of six adult participants (minimum two), which you can exchange and transfer. Don’t forget to bring your under 16 kids cos they get in free! And let’s not forget your fur babies – dogs are welcome. 

The exclusive escape room ambience will have you frantically running around town, with all of your team’s hands on deck to save Alice while the countdown looms and the clock is ticking. 

Time in your hands

Starting time is flexible − anywhere between 9:00 and 14:00 on the day and the fun lasts, on average, between two to three hours. Use the award-winning app to navigate the story’s twists and turns. Here’s your chance to dress to impress – come as Victorian Alice, steampunk Mad Hatter or any way you like!

Prizes to live for

We have to mention the awesome prizes they’re dishing out on the day. Here are the categories:

  • Fastest Team
