You’ve struck gold but word got out and now the vultures are circling.
Step into the Wild West, where the tiny frontier town of East Victoria is celebrating the discovery of gold.
But the celebrations turn sour when news arrives that the bloodthirsty Bill French Gang are on their way to claim the gold – and kill everyone in East Victoria for good measure!
With no sheriff around and no cavalry riding to the rescue your only hope is a rusty old locomotive that hasn’t worked in years – but with just one hour to get it going and escape with your lives, you need to think fast and work even faster.There isn’t a second to lose.

We had a few mishaps with the room with a puzzle not reset and elements that once complete weren't activating. The theme and set are good but didn't transition that well between rooms. Not a room I would recommend
One of the worst we have done as a team. Some puzzles were physically broken and thr majority of the puzzles were not intuitive or mechanical They were activated by the gamesmaster from a separate room. This means you don't get thr satisfying clunk of locks opening or magnets uncoupling. It made the whole experience feel like we were performing rather than solving puzzles.
The whole experience felt like it was made to cash in on the escape room buzz rather than embracing what is so fun about them.
Escape Hunt Liverpool is such a great addition to Liverpool ER scene. While I have the tendency to avoid chains when booking escape rooms, I will highly recommend Escape Hunt Liverpool to anyone looking for an escape. There is real attention to detail and immersion that other Escape Hunt in the country didn't deliver. Escape the Wild West is no stranger to this, the atmosphere, the décors, the puzzles, the flow and logic were spot on. You do feel like you're in in to find the gold and escape in board of the District 1 train. Our game master, Sarah, was a true ER enthusiast (so enthusiastic that she forgot the hot drinks we ordered :)), she stayed in character throughout the whole game with a perfect American accent, we did feel like we were after Bill French's gold. I would highly recommend the room but would not suggest it for less than 3 people as we escaped with 6 seconds left on the clock after receiving 2 clues. The whole flow made sense but a couple of puzzles felt as if we didn't have all the instructions necessary to solve, as if they made sense to the designer when it was first created but the logic would not easily come to mind to most players. Another one was solved by us by skipping a step which didn't give the same feeling of completion as it was designed to. And finally one puzzle had a typo that made me wonder if it was a clue... We did feel the pressure on the last puzzle, so much so that we did sit down to recover from it! Another brilliant room. Thank you for bringing Escape Hunt to Liverpool.
Played with a group of 6, including two newbies. This room works well with a larger group as there’s plenty to do in parallel, and a wide variety of puzzle types so there’s something for everyone. The themeing is nice - although I’ve seen games with better theme/puzzle integration, the set here was attractive,
One gripe: while our GM was good (and in-character) throughout, he disappeared at the last moment, leaving us stranded for an anticlimactic couple of minutes until a completely different GM showed up to take us back to reception.
Decent ideas but a few flaws made it a bit frustrating
