BBC Studios has signed a five year licensing agreement with Escape Hunt to create a run of Doctor Who themed escape rooms in the UK.
The global entertainment network will launch the first of the rooms in December this year, following the autumn launch of the new series. The intention will then be to roll out Doctor Who themed rooms across the UK over the next three years.
Escape Hunt has developed a range of themed rooms for the UK, believing that the use of branded content helps broaden the appeal of escape room puzzles to the public and the corporate clients.
“Following the success of our original Escape Hunt games, we are thrilled to be partnering with BBC Studios to create Doctor Who – The Live Escape Game,” said Rchard Harpham, Escape Hunt chief executive officer.
“Going on an Escape Hunt is all about stepping into and experiencing new worlds so strength in different genres is absolutely key to our content strategy. Doctor Who represents the very best in British action adventure and has a loyal and dedicated fanbase that spans all generations.
“We look forward to bringing the show to life for all fans in tis first ever live escape game experience at Escape Hunt venues across the UK.”
