“Enjoyable Unique Experience!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

I visited this attraction with friends and weren't too sure what to expect. We played the classic escape game in the light room.

After a slow start we started to get in to the game after about 20 mins.

The puzzles are not overly difficult but when ur under time pressure, nothing is easy!

We solved the room with a little help from the prompts we were given. Although we didn't complete the puzzles in the alloted hour, it wa still a great feeling to find the key and open the door.

Would defo recommend a booking if you are in Edinburgh.

Never done anything like this before!

“Dark room escape”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Although we didn't manage to escape the room on time, we enjoyed the game quite a lot. Puzzles are interesting and challenging. For all people in our team, it was first live escape game and we started planning to go again right after going out of the building.

“What a rush!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Visiting from the states and visiting family (who live in Edinburgh but had never heard of Escape!), our group of four set about solving the light room. Our staff member was very informative about what was expected of us, and then proceeded to lock us into the room with 60 minutes on the clock. We didn't really think we would be able to figure out all the puzzles (akin to too many cooks in the kitchen) but with 55 seconds to spare, we solved the final puzzle and escaped! This was a great time, and we wish we were in town longer, because we would like to try our hand at the dark room next. I would recommend going with about 3-4 people, because it might be hard to work through all the puzzles with only 2 people.

“Great experience, would highly recommend it!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Myself and three friends tried it out. At first I wasn't sure what to expect but everything was explained by the helpful and professional staff and I had a great experience trying to solve the puzzles to escape in the allotted hour. It's something unique and exciting to try while in Edinburgh and I would highly recommend it!

“Fantastic, unique game in Edinburgh”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Me and a few friends fancied something new to try in Edinburgh recently when we came across Escape. We weren't sure what to expect upon arrival but it was absolutely fantastic. The game itself is challenging but incredibly fun and I would thoroughly recommend it to any group of friends coming to Edinburgh.
