2-6 players

60 minutes

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.

Our favourite of the Escape Hunt games played so far. Gamesmaster was friendly and the Cheltenham venue is open and welcoming. Lovely props, decent puzzles and good links to the Alice in Wonderland story. Only complaint would be that there were some bits were a bit stiff or not in the best condition (one was sticky :->), which is surprising for such a newly opened venue.

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.
