Escape Hunt Edinburgh review
Escape Hunt Edinburgh is located in the city centre on Castle Street. The escape rooms are packed with excitement and you can tackle various challenges as a family. Together you will work as a team to find clues, solve puzzles and missions. The best group sizes are between two and six.
You and your teammates will get locked in a themed room and you have to find and solve a series of clues in order to escape. The experiences are completely immersive, utterly addictive, entertaining and lots of fun.
The challenges are recommended for anyone age 8 and over unless otherwise stated. Outdoor games are also for ages 8 and up. The real challenge is to complete what’s asked of you before the time runs out, each indoor quest lasts for 60 minutes with the whole experience lasts around 90 minutes. There’s a quick briefing before you enter your chosen room and afterwards, you can enjoy their lounge area with an in-house bar and photo opportunity space.
There are 4 different themed rooms available at this location. Together you will step into their highly immersive 5* escape rooms. Once inside you can’t take any photos and what happens in the room stays in the room. Brand new worlds are re-created in epically themed rooms. Quests may include Blackbeard’s Treasure, Escape the Wild West, The Fourth Samurai and The Last Vikings.
