    Fantastic.
    Fabulous escape room. I did this with family , 6 adults, and we all agreed this was the highlight of our weekend in Edinburgh. The venue was Covid safe. The host took time to explain the scenario and get us into character. The puzzles were challenging so that we felt we had achieved something when we solved them but not ridiculously tough. Absolutely fantastic and I would thoroughly recommend this. Price was very reasonable too.

    Absolutely Fantastic Escape Room
    Focus on the colours!! We have done many rooms throughout the world and believe me when I say this was one of the most enjoyable ones we have done. We were met by the host on arrival who took the time to get to know us, He then got into character and we began our journey into the room. I won't give any clues away as that's not fair but be rest assured if you choose to do this room you won't be disappointed Can't wait till you have more rooms available.

    Wonderful experience!
    I run a social group for teens with autism and we visited Padlox on a Saturday evening. We were greeted by Bastien, who was exceptionally patient and took the time to answer lots of questions to prepare our group. We went in and managed to solve loads of puzzles, with some helpful hints from him. Although we didn't quite make it, the teens had a fabulous time and showed great teamwork skills. I would highly recommend the Superhero experience! Thanks you and keep up the good work!!

    Fantastic experience!
    So much fun!! We were the first customers since reopening after lockdown and the staff were very helpful pointing out the safety measures to comply with government guidelines. We all felt safe throughout our time in the building. I would definitely recommend this escape room and their lovely staff to anyone.

    It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a top-tier escape room!
    We had a fantastic time playing Superhero Training yesterday. Bastien was a superb host who got into character as our super-mentor and the rest of the team were also really friendly. The room itself is full of diverse puzzles that tie together really well for a great overall experience. I would say it's perfect for a team of 4 or 5. We'll be back as soon as possible to play the other room!

    Interactive family experience
    This escape room was perfect for families so that everyone is included and has enjoyment out of the experience. Other escape rooms require tasks to be done in a particular order and usually one of our family members takes the lead and solves the challenges before the rest of us get there. This escape room allowed several tasks to be done at the same time so everyone in the group had an opportunity to complete tasks and feel like a contribution was made to the overall experience. There were lots of different challenges and a wide range of tasks to those I have seen in other escape rooms. The challenges were colour coded which helped us work out how to proceed when things got a bit tricky. The host was fantastic and we all had a great time. Would highly recommend this family experience.

    Brian and Bobs BIG breakout!
    Had a wonderful evening at Padlox, Luci or should I say Pixie was a fantastic GamesMaster and set the scene perfectly. Padlox has a fantastic room with incredibly well thought out and unquie puzzles. With all the COVID measures in place, you should definitely try this room. Can't wait to play the new room in development!

    A great way to spend an hour
    This was our first time doing an escape room and if they are all as good as this one then it won't be our last. The puzzles were very clever and challenged us enough to think we were actually quite intelligent. The scenario was clear and the 58mins it took us to escape the room passed in a blur. Lots of fun and we would thoroughly recommend it!

    Played it a second time - still one of my favourite rooms
    I did this room with my family several years ago and it was might first ever escape room experience. We didn't managed to escape! However I remembered how well the theming was done and how bright and spacious the rooms are. ~35 rooms later and I was back in Edinburgh with my partner to try this room again. My memory was right - this really is a great room. We did it as a pair but the sequencing of the puzzles means that it is also well suited for larger groups. I'm sure 6 could do this room comfortably. I look forward to trying the new room in development when I am next in Edinburgh.

Excellent price and customer service. Also just a super fun escape room. We did the super hero one, that was very fun. The staff were great at explaining how it would work and only gave clues when we were really stuck. The puzzles were appropriately challenging. We were a group of 5 people and that was a good size.

Friendly welcoming staff and a great time training to be super heroes. A wide range of different tasks at differing levels of difficulty. Lots of fun, frustration and elation. Hopefully be back one day for the other room.

Had the pleasure to do an escape room with a couple of friends on Monday and it was absolutely one of the most amazing days. Konstantin was the one that explained to us how it worked and he was a delight! Best host we could have asked for! Made it so fun for us and made us involved. Definitely suggest to go visit them, we will for sure go back!
