What a fantastic way to spend an hour. Not sure what to expect, my daughter and I entered the room with no preconceptions. Loved every minute of it. We escaped with less than a minute on the clock and felt suitably challenged. There were just...More

This is a great concept well executed. Our group,including 2 boys aged 12 and 14 were fully engaged for an hour and they particularly enjoyed it. Have to concede we needed a few hints which came over the screen and we thought we had cracked...More

We are glad that your group had a great time and solved Dr Knox's Enigma! Having groups of mixed ages can work really well we think. Come back and see us when our new room opens!

What a way to spend an hour! Loved every minute of this. Very hard, kept all 5 of us interested and involved, very good fun, very innovative. Some of clues were extremely clever. We managed to succeed though!!!

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