BID, BARTER, BRIBE AND BLACKMAIL IN THIS ALL NEW INTERACTIVE CLUE HUNT EXPERIENCE

Buckbuck Games have been described as “Crystal Maze on crystal meth”, and this latest trip promises to plunge players even further down the rabbit hole!

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

Teams are led upstairs at The Owl & Hitchhiker pub, 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

 

WELCOME TO NEW WONDERLAND!

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! 

Teams are enlisted as 'Wonderhunters', 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 in the mirror the same way again!"

Karima Setohy - Wonderland Festival

 

A COMICAL TWIST ON LEWIS CARROLL’S CLASSIC TALE

This fun fuelled story holds a looking glass up to our own world, fondly referred to as ‘Aliceland’!

Roam through New Wonderland with multiple opportunities to trade, collect, spend and gamble golds through interactive performances and escape room challenges. 

Each game is for up to 24 players, broken into smaller teams of 2-5 exploring various avenues over the hour-long experience.

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 brand new gaming format, and often does.

***** “12 of us visited as part of our agency Xmas bash and had a total blast. It's a wonderfully weird experience totally made by the great actors who welcome you into their bizarre world.”

Tom Skinner – Design My Night
