Four of us did the Da Vinci Room on my daughter's birthday (all adults).. It took us a little while to get started but once we did so, we finished and escaped with 16 minutes to spare. Some interesting puzzles which took some working out.

We split into 2 teams of 6, boys versus girls and it was a hilarious, interesting, well organised hour of fun. There are lot's of unexpected surprises and challenges and everyone had a great time.

Great staff and fun puzzles in the Da Vinci Room. We didn't really know what to expect but we had a great time! We'll definitely check out their other rooms.

This was the first Edinburgh Escape room we had experienced. Our team consisted of 4 people, and we all enjoyed solving the clues. Whole concept is very well thought out.

We have been doing escape rooms across the world and the one we had there was a disappointment. The access to the hidden room was open from the start (The staff didn't notice it for the whole game). The clues provided were for enigma we...More

Compared to other escape rooms, this one was particularly lacklustre. The venue is effectively a kebab shop repurposed to run 3 escape rooms in the back which you can hear other group activities through the walls. We did Area 51, escaped it in about 45min....More

On arrival the young female staff was very pleasant and welcoming. The game itself was well laid out with a variety puzzle and logical games. We had a great time. There were helpful hints if you needed them. Well worth a visit. Highly recommended

Hi there, for 7 people you would need 2 rooms. We can accommodate a maximum of 6 per room at our New Town site or 5 at Haymarket.

Hi, The games are great fun but 10 years old is too young for this attraction. The rooms involve solving a number of riddles and codes, many of which would be beyond a 10 year old's capability. The rules also state an adult... More

Hi there, I am afraid the absolute maximum we allow in each room is 6 so you would need to book all 3 rooms for a group of 15 (6 and 7 only makes 13!). We don't have any specific different games for schools but I am sure... More
