After reopening last week, Escape Hunt Norwich has launched a new 5* escape room, Doctor Who: A Dalek Awakens.

In partnership with BBC Studios, the Doctor Who themed game will add to the Chantry Place site’s existing offering of three escape rooms and virtual reality experience which are all open to book online now.

Players will step on board a doomed spaceship where a rogue Dalek has tapped into the power system in an attempt to recharge its weapons. Players must prevent catastrophe by shutting down the ship’s power core; however, the ship’s life-support systems rely on the same energy source, meaning shutting it down would result in the death of all 10,000 passengers.

Suitable for players aged 8 years and older, teams of 2-6 are given 60 minutes to resolve this impossible situation so the spaceship can continue safely to its destination. If the Dalek is not defeated within the time limit, it will result in extermination.

Escape Hunt CEO Richard Harpham commented, “We’re so looking forward to opening our doors again after lockdown, and even more excited to be bringing a new world of adventure to Norwich. Doctor Who has a loyal and dedicated fanbase, which we have seen with the success of existing products in escape rooms, play at home and digital games, so to be able to build on that and bring a new game in Doctor Who: A Dalek Awakens to the people of Norwich is an exciting prospect for Escape Hunt.”
