We want visitors to feel like they've been placed at the centre of a Doctor Who episode, where they're right at the heart of the adventure
– Bradley Wynne, creative director at Escape Hunt

Escape Hunt is set to open a new Doctor Who escape room in Oxford.

Expected to open on 8 February 2019, the escape room, called World's Collide, takes visitors on a thrilling adventure with the Doctor herself.

On entering the room, visitors are transported to ChronosCorp HQ, where they are informed that eccentric billionaire Alastair Montague's attempt to commercialise time travel has ripped the fabric of time and space. To make matters worse Cybermen are planning to use this hole to attack Earth and 'upgrade' humanity.

Players, equipped with Montague's prototype time machine and his extensive collection of time artefacts, have just 60 minutes to close the gap to save the planet from the Cybermen's attack.

Speaking to Attractions Management News Bradley Wynne, creative director at Escape Hunt, said: "I think we're living in a time where people really value experiences above possessions and time spent away from screens. We really want to give people story-led immersive experiences where they're working through the story, rather than a string of Doctor Who-themed puzzles, with their teammates to achieve an overall objective. We want visitors to feel like they've been placed at the centre of a Doctor Who episode, where they're right at the heart of the adventure."

"Doctor Who is an excellent IP to work with because it can be anything, future, past, Earth, space and everything in between!"

"I'm incredibly proud of the team here and the wider delivery team, on a very successful collaboration with BBC Studios," Wynne added.

Worlds Collide is the first chain of Doctor Who-themed escape rooms with new locations in Bristol and Leeds and upcoming locations in Manchester, Reading and Birmingham.
