BID, BARTER, BRIBE AND BLACKMAIL IN A LIVE INTERACTIVE wonderland experience

Take on bizarre challenges in a new type of adventure that combines immersive theatre, escape rooms, and murder mystery, with a hilariously bonkers storyline.

Teams receive their Wonderhunter packs from the White Rabbit at The Ninth Life pub, before being led upstairs and greeted with a welcoming tipple labelled ‘Drink Me’!


★★★★★ "I loved the characters, hunting, blackmailing... it was WOW! One of the best and funniest immersive hunting experiences I've done."  

Joanne Mortlock - Love Popups London

 


A COMICAL TWIST ON LEWIS CARROLL’S CLASSIC TALE

The Baron will welcome you to New Wonderland, boasting jobs and opportunity for all with precious ‘golds’. However, Russell the smoking caterpillar, has locked up everyone’s golds, and himself! 

You'll be enlisted as a 'Wonderhunter', paid in golds to pursue Russell's clues.


★★★★★ "Brought out a competitive, ambitious, and corrupt streak I never knew I had! Not to be missed, you will never look at yourself the same way again!"

Karima Setohy - Wonderland Festival

 

LIVE INTERACTIVE TEAM PLAY

You'll receive missions to interrogate characters and each other with multiple opportunities to trade, gamble and win golds.

The story is guided by the players and one of many endings will be decided by your team's decisions.

You'll come across characters such as Beadle Dum, who’s marbles were lost at a particularly mad Mad Hatter's party, Poppy Stamp, the bashful beauty with no tongue, and Tumeric Gin, the alchemist who lost her beloved dodo.

Will you discover Beadle's lost marbles?

Poppy's tongue?

Tumeric's yearning for true happiness?

Or simply serve the Baron's New Wonderland wealth?

Whichever path you choose, watch out for the dreaded Serpent! Anything can happen in this new gaming format, and often does.


★★★★★ Such a unique experience. Reminded me of the choose your own adventure computer games I used to play but REAL! Was so much fun and had a great time completing the various quests, even though I didn't win the beauty contest! LOL.

    I booked in for a 'real life' BuckBuck adventure just before the pandemic and never got to it, so it was really exciting to find I could go Down the Rabbit Hole virtually on my birthday this year instead. We've done a lot of Zoom stuff, but this was definitely a highlight - whacky, clever, unexpected, well organised (mostly!) - we all loved it, including my not-always-adventurous husband and hard-to-impress teenagers. The trick is to throw yourself in the minute it starts, and not to worry about whether any of it makes sense. Just enjoy the mayhem.

    Really fun experience for a Saturday Night! Despite being with a load of people we hadn't met before it was a really good laugh and everyone seemed to get really into it. The hosts did such a great job at involving everyone and creating a really hilarious and comfortable atmosphere.
