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

Loved this activity! Really tricky and got the mind working! I'd never been to an escape room before and it was much better than I expected it to be! Would definitely recommend!

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
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
