Following the hugely successful launch of The Fourth Samurai in Bristol, Escape Hunt has announced plans to launch a second original game at its site in Cabot Circus. The new game, Our Finest Hour is a high-octane World War II themed counter-intelligence mission.
Set in the aftermath of the Battle of Britain, Bristolians are tasked with taking on the role of secret agents who must save their country from Nazi invasion. Escape Hunters have just 60 minutes to find the location of the dangerous ‘V Weapons’ or Britain will suffer catastrophic losses beyond recovery. No pressure.
Global leaders in one of the fastest growing entertainment genres, Escape Hunt chose Bristol for the launch of its very first UK site in March 2018. Since then, Escape Hunt Bristol has shot into the top 10 of TripAdvisor’s Fun and Games category, receiving 100% positive reviews. The phenomenal response from the city and Escape Hunters’ desire to come back and try another challenge prompted the team to bring Our Finest Hour to Cabot Circus.
Players are being called on to gather teams of between two and six friends, workmates or family members to try their hand at these highly immersive adventures where the stakes are high and time is of the essence. There are two instances of both games available, so larger groups of up to 12 can split between rooms and go head to head – adding to the pressure and excitement. Booking is now open for both games here.
The whole experience lasts an hour and a half and begins with a briefing from one of the talented Games Masters. Escape Hunters will then have just one hour to play the game in which they must solve a quest by cracking a series of clues and puzzles in order to escape. From cryptic word play, to physical dexterity; groups of friends or corporate teams will be challenged to band together and regain their freedom. Players will then have time to reflect on the experience and enjoy some light refreshments in Escape Hunt lounges during a debrief.
