Escape is Edinburgh's Leading Attraction

Escape has proved immensely popular in Edinburgh and beyond. On trip advisor it has consistently ranked highly amongst a whole host of major tourist sites in a city that is not short on things to do.

What is Escape?

Escape is a challenging game in which your aim is to get yourself and your team out from the room you have been locked inside of.

In order to do so you must solve a variety of puzzles, riddles and brain teasers. Using your observation and problem solving skills you and the team you are with will have to work together to escape by locating the safe that holds the key to unlock the door to freedom.

If you can think outside the box and come up with creative solutions then you stand the best chance of success.

Exit & Escape Games Are Popular Internationally

The Escape games were brought to Scotland by Daniel Hill, inspired by the popularity of Exit games in Europe. Daniel had been studying maths and was looking to become a teacher before he realised the potential there was in Escape games that would allow him to exercise his love of puzzle solving.

Escape Edinburgh opened last May and has enjoyed massive success, becoming the top attraction in the city very quickly as it captured the public's imagination. Check out for yourself what visitors have had to say on Trip Advisor.
