“Great hour. Really worth a visit”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

We spent a very entertaining hour here. The organiser was very helpful and explained exactly what was expected. The clues were difficult but we guessed the first one relatively quickly leading us into a false sense of security. Then things got difficult and the organiser - bless him - gave us some much needed help in the form of clues on the computer screen. Needless to say we didnt get out of the room but this did not detract from the fun. Well worth a visit. It gets the grey matter working hard. Will go again to try more of the escape games.

“An engaging and thrilling 60 minutes!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

We turned up having no idea what to expect, but we all left wanting to experience it all over again!

In short, you enter a room with only a few 'do and do not type rules'. With 60 minutes on the clock, the room is yours to work out how to escape. Turn it upside down, find hidden keys and clues...

This is really something new and unique to Edinburgh, and unlike anything you will have done before. Highly recommended to all. We will certainly be rebooking!

“Amazing challenge!”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

Incredibly fun and engaging experience for the whole family! This is something I would love to do again. Very fun, you get very "into the game" once you are in the room. We were four people taking on the challenge of the light room, and succeeded with only 2 minutes to go!
The man who works there explains the consent of the game and what is not a part of the game (like the heating etc.) so you go into the room knowing somewhat what to expect. What he doesn't tell you is all the fun and excitement you are going to have solving the puzzle!
Wish there were more live escape-the-room games around!

“A truely amazing experience”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Myself and my husband booked Escape as part of our trip to Edinburgh. We weren't 100% sure what to expect but I'm so glad we went! I've always been a fan of programmes such as Crystal Maze etc and logic games such as this really excite me! The rush of adrenaline you get whilst trying to escape is amazing and I would recommend this experience to anyone who likes to try new things and likes a bit of adventure!

Kudos to Dan too, fab time!
