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.

broken techpoor hostingno atmospherequite easy

Our host was very nice but admitted no one had watched our game for 18 minutes due to being too busy and they were surprised how well we did without help! Also hated the clue system of GM’s talking to you. And no music made no atmosphere. No padlocks but this just led to baby puzzles. I liked the roses puzzle and plant but overall…disappointing.

Firstly, our host was brilliant. Very in character as the Cheshire Cat - really entertained us. 

In terms of difficulty, this room wasn't that hard - a lot of the puzzles/tasks were clear. Although one task involved lying on the floor, which we definitely weren't expecting 😂

The theme was unmistakable - Alice in Wonderland (Puzzleland!). The whole room set up was completely on theme, as were the tasks/puzzles. 

We had a great time playing this room and can't wait to go back and play the others at Resorts World.

Not bad, good fun and challenging.

Hosting very good.

Shame about the pricing per person rather than room cost.

More than 3 people for this game probably not worth it.

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.

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.
