And if the elves aren't saved in time it could be disastrous - as presents won't be delivered in time for the big day! 

Luckily Jack Frost has left a trail of puzzles that, when solved, will free each elf.

So Santa needs a gang of of Christmas questors to solve the puzzles and free the elves 

A spokesman at City Escape Games said: “Christmas Quest: Elf Rescue is a wonderful, winter outdoor activity for families with children of seven years old and up.

The game takes between an hour and an hour and a half and is just under one mile in length.  

The fun family game is downloaded on to a phone.

The game runs from November 6 to January 9 and costs £9.99 

There's no need to book, customers just purchase the game and play whenever they wish - though the game is best played during the daylight.  

City Escape Games was created in 2019 with the aim of combining fun, puzzle-solving activities with city walking trails.  

Based in Norwich, City Escape Games values its community and has built several games that show the spectacular sights of the city, giving its games a local flavour.  

The small, local company is run by three Norwich people who have a passion for puzzles and a love of their city.

Cathy Wilson, from Norwich is an avid fan of City Escape Games, she said: “The games are engaging and fun and I love how they incorporate the normal escape room idea with being active as you physically follow the game trail.  

“We've enjoyed playing the games in groups as well for team building activities. I'm looking forward to playing more.”
