Fun hour or so competing against family. A little bit of a slow burner but once you get into it it's great. Had forgotten about the laser maze so that was a very fun thing to discover at the end. Would go and do there...More

This was the first game we tried with just 2 of us. It was definitely harder with only 2 people so it took us a while to get going but the last 20 minutes (especially the lasers!) is really exciting and fun, and we managed...More

Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its

this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
