I really didn't know what to expect when we arrived at the escape building. Straight away we had a chat with a friendly member of staff, who explained a little more, and then we were straight in for our 60 minutes to try and escape. It seemed like we were doing well, but every time I looked at the clock... More

Had a great afternoon, staff were friendly and clear in their instructions. Puzzles were challenging and we had the added competition of trying to beat family in another room! We all got out within the hour. Would definitely go back to do another puzzle room. Somewhere fun, and different for teenagers to pensioners!

Spent an hour with my work colleagues and we all thoroughly enjoyed it! Very thought provoking and just the right level of challenge/ fun. Highly recommend.

Did this as part of a weekend with my gf. Was pretty tough but with a little aid from the hosts we got out just after the hour. Quite exhilarating trying to solve all the puzzles. Would recommend.

We went to Escape on a work networking event for 17 people and it was good fun working out the puzzles. Challenges for each room last an hour and all our teams escaped with between 2 and 8 minutes left on the clock. There are only two rooms here (i think!) so hopefully the rooms can be updated periodically with... More

Having played a similar game in Leeds I played this themed game in Edinburgh last week. I thought the concept was pretty similar but this game gave you a walkie talkie to keep us in control of the help (we did need a little) we received. Some really clever puzzles in this game and a real surprise towards the end!... More

We went to play the classic escape game. It was so much fun and a great challenge. The challenges were difficult but achievable. You really have to think outside the box! We went in a team of 3 and had a ball!! I highly recommend the experience!

We did this as a group of 5. It was very well laid out and the staff were so friendly. When in Edinburgh there will be a tendency to go out the night before and then do this attraction but being locked in a room for an hour isn't the best idea. Highly recommended, really good fun and good team... More
