    if you are worried about broken nails and slips; remember there is ice cream truck waiting for you at the exit.

    took my 64 years old husband and I 2 hours slowly walking up and down. the top view was amazing.

    Caution with runners and the free-palestine protestors at the parliament.

    Took my partner for an extra wee birthday treat-something different for the last year of his 50s… what a brilliant success it was too. Lovely welcome from Darren. Partner had never tried VR before and Darren was super at explaining how everything worked to my slightly Luddite beloved. We’d chosen a driving experience. It truly is 5D and fully immersive. Darren took him through lots of different races, even round Brands Hatch in a thunder storm. Partner was absolutely buzzing all the way home..
    We will definitely be back and next time we are going to race each other and also try walking the plank! Thank you Darren and daughter for a brilliant afternoon.

    My mother and I went here on our last day in Edinburgh. We were welcomed by Hannah and Emi, who were wonderful hosts.
    Axe throwing was the activity my mother was looking the least forward to, but ended up being one of her favourite experiences from the whole trip!
    We had a great time! Thank you so much Hannah and Emi for the fun and laughter!

    Good fun! We had not been to an escape room before and was not sure what to expect. We enjoyed it! Our games master Nikolai was awesome. I personally would not want to do an escape room as a massive group of people because only 2 or 3 people can do a math puzzle at one time. Because there were 5 of us, we tripped over each other a few times all talking at once etc. Because we all worked on one puzzle before getting a clue to move on to a next one. It isn't always possible to all work on things if the next clue is locked up. Loved it! The cutting room was good. We will definitely be back to try another room. Even having to fight though swifty trafic to get into edin didn't put us off.

    We had an absolute blast, doing the Mini Highland Games followed by Axe Throwing during a Stag weekend. The instructors were great (especially ours Martin), who put us through our paces, gave a little history about the events and made the whole thing hilarious and fun.

    Booking and communication was very smooth and arranging our transport through Great Away Days made it even easier with pick up from our hotel on time and dropped back into the city with no hanging around.

    Absolutely no complaints and would highly recommend.

    It was an amazing experience, I think the name of our host was Daniel and he was fabulous and had the perfect energy. And if I may ask are kids allowed to participate with zero physical supervision while in the Escape room

    Amazing experience. It was my first escape room and I had a lot of fun. Well though out and with a lot of variety.
    We did a space theme one and it was very good and I notice a lot of care on the room.
    Dean was an excellent guidance and enthusiastic.

    My teenaged boys and I loved our session. The equipment is great and feels authentic. The instructors are helpful and friendly - and squeezed in an extra game so we had a full hour of play. The setting is really good with natural changes in terrain as well as man made barricades.

    And unlike paintball, it doesn't hurt! And you don't pay extra for ammo.

    How have I missed this place for so long?

    Couldn't find fault with the day. Everyone had a great time. The marshalls were very safety concious, friendly and interacted brilliantly with the kids, aged 15,12 and 10. Good range of scenarios and we all want to go again!
