“AWESOME FUN TIME”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

We went there last night to try the advanced room and were not disapointed with the experience. It was challenging and very fun. I dont think we would have escaped in time if our charming game master did not push us in the right direction at times...
The staff and the service were excellent and we appreciated their attention.
I look forward to coming again to try the other rooms and i think this would make a great activity for a corporate social club outing.
Well done to the Escape Hunt team and see you soon!!!!

Hi Robin,

We remember your group very clearly. Thanks for bringing your friends down to try out our games. Our game masters are trained to assist and guide you in the game, while letting you all solve the puzzles yourselves. We are glad that you enjoyed our service, as that is one of our biggest focus - to ensure a great experience for all our customers.

Hope to see you all back again soon! Do try out our other games at Escape Hunt branches opening worldwide..

Warm regards,
EHSG Management

Hi Nisus,

Thanks for your nice feedback! We have designed our games to be challenging and yet logical, on hindsight. It is always great intellectual stimulation and a conversational topic amongst friends. We will definitely pass on your compliments to Estee, and hope to see you and your friends again soon!

Warm regards,

“Great for beginners but not really worth the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

(Note: As I'm reviewing all the escape room companies that I've tried, my reviews focus on the differences between companies, not on the escape room concept itself.)

How much you enjoy the rooms at Escape Hunt will probably depend on whether you're new to escape games, and how much you're willing to pay.

First, the obvious point: this is the most expensive escape room outfit in town if you're playing in groups of fewer than five people. It's $28 per person for a group of five, which is the most expensive rate you'd find at other companies. And it only goes up from there, to as much as $38 if you're trying the room as a pair.

That having been said: For beginners, this is actually a great introduction to the escape room concept. The puzzles are very logical, and the clues are more than sufficient to establish the answer. You won't have to make any big leaps of logic. Beginners who start with Escape Hunt might end up being annoyed with how "under-clued" some other escape rooms can be!

However, if you're more experienced, that turns into a weakness instead -- the puzzles can seem too straightforward and obvious. We attempted their Blackmail in the Bedroom room as a group of four, and finished it well within half an hour.

There was also a negligible use of interesting technology or special effects, which is rather disappointing given the high price.

Furthemore, their booking system is not too user-friendly. Because you have to pay for the room at the point of booking and the price varies by the number of players, you have to be sure about the size of your group. Some other escape room companies are very relaxed about letting you have more or fewer players than the booking, since you pay on the day itself and each booking is for a whole room. Still, at least Escape Hunt doesn't force you to combine with other groups, which is good.

On the plus side, the service is great. After completing the room, you can sit down to complimentary tea and biscuits and discuss the experience with your teammates.

Nonetheless, I've already booked to try their two remaining rooms, and will update this review if my impression of the place is greatly changed. However, having heard from friends who have already tried these other rooms, I doubt that will be the case...

Hi randomvoice,

Thanks for your feedback. Yes, we are slightly pricier than the other escape games in Singapore but for a good reason. We provide great value for money, and we pride ourselves on being more than just an escape game. Our entire 90 minutes is called The Escape Hunt Experience, and what we offer is more than just an escape game but an entire experience.

Firstly, we provide a proper lounge area after the games for customers to sit down, relax over a cup of complimentary tea and biscuits, have a chat about their game experience. We also dress people up in our custom-made Sherlock Holmes costumes, and help them to take a group photo. We are confident that no other Escape Games have gone to such extent for customer service. We could have squeezed in 2 additional game rooms, but instead chose to have a nice cosy area for our customers to relax in. This is one reason why many companies are also opting to conduct their corporate events at our venue instead of our competitors.

As for the games, we have to find the right balance of difficulty levels. It is not easy to please everyone, and we try our very best. That is why we have the normal difficulty level games (Blackmail in the Bedroom & Spy in the Study), as well as the advanced level game (Bomb in the Cellar). We are unlike other Escape Games that pride themselves on the low escape rates, but instead our games are designed to be very possible for groups to escape within 1 hour. The game design is meant to be logical, and only very experienced players would find the links between the various puzzles relatively easily. We do not design the games in a haphazard and random manner, and every puzzle and clue in the room are inter-linked subtly. Your group could have found our normal level rooms too easy as you have tried many escape games before, but we felt it is not entirely fair to rate us a 3 star before you have tried our advanced room.

You also mentioned that we lack interesting technology or special effects, which is exactly our appeal amongst many satisfied customers! We opted for a minimalist design as this is our style (Singapore in the early 1900s) and a homage to the original Japanese games that started the growing phenomenon that is escape the room games worldwide today. For reference, there are many famous games globally that are even more minimalist than ours. It is the choice of each game designer how to theme the game and we have put way more effort into each game's story-line than anyone we know of!

As for our booking system, we also do allow additions into the group in the group call us in advance. Many people have called us for additions or even change of dates, and we are generally okay with this. One of the advantages of our booking system is that the room is exclusively yours, and we do not combine groups unlike some other escape games.

We also provide a dedicated game master who is assigned to your group throughout the game duration, as we felt that the human interaction element was missing in most of the other escape games.

Nonetheless, this is all personal taste and we respect your opinion. The fact that you have booked the other 2 rooms meant that you must have enjoyed it somewhat. We hope that you will change your opinion of us after the games and recognize the extra effort we have put in to make all our customers enjoy their time with us.

Warm regards,
EHSG Management
