Escape Hunt’s sinking ship stops shoppers in their tracks

On Friday, one of Liverpool’s brand new entertainment venues, Escape Hunt, showed passers by exactly what they can expect when they visit the Albert Dock’s newest hangout. A 3D masterpiece,featuring Liverpool music legend, John Lennon, appeared in the city centre to mark the opening of Escape Hunt Liverpool.

To mark the arrival of Escape Hunt Liverpool’s brand-new five star escape room adventure, Blackbeard’s Treasure, a spectacular 3D interpretation of this mesmerising game was created in the city centre to show potential customers just how exciting the Escape Hunt concept is going to be.

As immersive as the escape room game itself, the anamorphic painting featured a unique portrait of Liverpool’s very own John Lennon, as fans have never seen before. The unique street art, created by world-renowned street art company, 3D Joe & Max, captivated passers-by making them want to jump right into the artwork.

This exhilarating game at Escape Hunt Liverpool, which opened at the Royal Albert Dock, transports players back in time, to the galleon of one of the most notorious pirates in history, the terrifying Captain Blackbeard. With the ship shot to pieces and sinking fast, players and their scurvy shipmates go in search of Blackbeard’s fabled loot but find themselves trapped aboard. With just 60 minutes before they go down with the ship, teams have to work together and solve a series of mind-bending puzzles to make their escape with the treasure and their lives.

Opening a week later, the other game available is The Last Vikings which takes players into a world of gods and monsters where they will have to work as a team to summon Norse gods for protection, to save their Viking village from the Ice Giants.

Harry Booker, General Manager at Escape Hunt Liverpool, said: “Escape Hunt Liverpool is now open and today we shared another immersive experience with the city in the form of this unique 3D drawing. We hope this brilliant artwork encourages local residents to be sucked into the sinking ship and more escape room adventures for real at Escape Hunt Liverpool.”

Open to teams of between two and six players, Escape Hunt is perfect for friends, family or work mates in search of a fun and an exciting challenge. The game begins with a mission briefing from a talented Games Master, followed by an hour to crack a series of clues and puzzles.

From cryptic word play to physical dexterity, players must work as a team and break out of the room, before celebrating their escape in the premium lounge and taking advantage of the well-stocked bar.

Games are suitable for players age 10 or over. Anyone aged under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

We can’t wait to try out the experience for ourselves and just pray we get out alive! Watch this space!
