The Mad Hatter is in trouble. Save him from the Queen of Hearts without losing your heads.
Step into Wonderland, where the Hatter has been accused of stealing the Queen’s Tarts. With Alice nowhere to be seen, it’s time for you to fill her shoes.
You find yourself at the Hatter’s cottage. The table is set but no one is around.
A sign on the lawn reads ‘Tea Party Cancelled by Royal Decree’. Curiouser and curiouser…
Find and return the Queen’s Tarts in 60 minutes, or it’s off with the Hatter’s head. Chop chop.

This room is so much fun. We had lovely hosts at the Manchester Escape Hunt and all the tech in the game worked beautifully. It wasn't challenging so we powered through it, even as a two, but it was incredibly enjoyable.

This is not a well run Escape Hunt. The rooms were very tired and need maintenance. In this particular game, we were told to ring the bell if we needed help or a clue. There were several times where we were requesting a clue and we received no response. This was frustrating and ran down the clock. A lot of the tech was broken, one particular puzzle required us to line up several valves in the correct order. We did this correctly the First time and nothing happened, we requested help from the GM and they weren't able to override the puzzle so we were stuck for a significant amount of time. At this point we'd kind of given up. The experience here was poor.

We played as a team of 4 to bring back the pies to the afternoon tea of Alice and her friends. the whole room looks superb and the design of the puzzles and props are absolutely amazing! Our host, Michael was purely amazing as well. Highly recommended.

Reviews by escape room review sites

Whilst Alice in Puzzleland is available to play at multiple sites across the UK, we chose the closest to London: Reading. During our experience there, we were led by the Cheshire Cat (played by the awesome Games Master Hamish) through the rabbit hole and into the magical world of Wonderland.


Our GM declared we were the best team he had ever seen play this game. But actually...

Overall, a really good game with some lovely game play and well designed props. Escape Hunt Resorts World is based in the middle of a shopping centre which felt very unusual but means there are lots of people and passing trade.
We headed down to Puzzleland via Oxford to help save the Mad Hatter from Execution! Sinister stuff! See if we managed to find the Queen’s Tarts and what we thought about our Alice in Wonderland themed experience.
