The Hunter Force

A group of ex-military personnel and mountaineers will be hot on your tracks, super motivated to track you down day and night – when you think you are not being watched, you are!

Rules Of The Escape Games

Once you start the event you against on the clock! You must use your skill set to get to each check point, using clues provided and any resources that are at your disposal.

You can use public transport. You can walk, you can run. You can drive, swim or fly. You can use phones and members of the public for help. You can sleep anywhere.
