Hi there, thanks for coming along. Glad to hear it worked well as a family game. It's one of our more difficult games!

We had an amazing staff party at the Escape Edinburgh. The puzzles were very creative and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. We will definitely be back again, next time with different rooms. Staff were super nice and very accommodating.

Hi there, glad to hear you enjoyed The Experiment room. I think it's probably my favourite as it's a little bit different to most other escape games out there. Great to hear the staff were so welcoming as well.

We went as a couple and did the Houdini Room. It was full of very well thought out puzzles which do tax the brain and, although we had done a few other escape rooms before, we did need a few clues to allow us escape...More

Hi David, it's great to hear that you enjoyed your first escape room with us, hopefully the first of many. We have rooms around the UK if you fancy trying another.

Hi, thanks for coming along and for leaving a review. It's great to hear that Ciara provided such good service. Unfortunately Professor Wiseman gets pretty upset when people eat his Lotus biscuits!

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
