The wait for an epic out of this world adventure is over as the UK’s first official Doctor Who live escape game opened at Escape Hunt in Corn Exchange Manchester on Friday 22 February.
Featuring the Cybermen, one of the Time Lord’s oldest enemies, Worlds Collide is the thrilling new escape room game from BBC Studios and Escape Hunt which will be playable at Escape Hunt venues across the country in 2019.
Teams of up to six become the Doctor’s new friends and are transported into the future to the offices of ChronosCorp HQ. Here, eccentric billionaire Alastair Montague’s efforts to develop commercial time travel have caused a tear in the fabric of space and time, which the Cybermen will use to attack Earth!
The players are given 60 minutes to work out how to close the tear before the Cybermen break through. They will use only what remains of Montague.
They will also use his prototype time engine and the extensive collection of time-related artefacts acquired over the course of his experiments. The fate of the universe rests in their hands – if they take too long the human race will be ‘upgraded’.
From today, fans can battle through space and time at Escape Hunt Manchester as well as book tickets for the immersive adventure, which has also launched in Bristol, Leeds and Oxford.
