QUESTIONS & ANSWERS.
What is Escape?
Escape is a team game ideally for 2-5 people. We lock your team in a room and the goal of the game is to escape within 60 minutes. This is achieved by completing a series of challenges which allow you to unlock the next one and eventually obtain the key for the door.
It is different, challenging and great fun, perfect for friends, family and co-workers. We can provide for small and large groups and are more than happy to listen to individual requests and accommodate them where we can.
Is there an age restriction?
While there is no restriction on age the puzzles may be too demanding for those under 10. Children under 16 must usually be accompanied by an adult. We do recognise that all children are different so please feel free to ask.
I am claustrophobic, can I play?
The rooms are quite large but should you feel more comfortable we could leave the room unlocked.
What should we wear when playing?
No special attire is required.
Is there a minimum or maximum team size?
NEW TOWN: 2 as a minimum and 6 as a maximum, however we would recommend teams of 3-5 as these are the optimum numbers for the games and allow everyone to participate.
HAYMARKET: Strictly 2-5 per room due to fire regulations.
How much time will we need to play?
Please allow an hour and half. This allows us to brief you, give you an hour in the room and then speak to you afterwards regarding your experience.
I would like to play with my colleagues as a team building exercise. Is it possible?
Yes, please see our 'Business Class' corporate page
How much does it cost?
The rooms cost £66 for groups of 3-6 with a discount for teams of 2 to £48.
How do I book Escape?
Through our booking page, over the phone or simply come and see us.
How do I travel to Escape via public transport?
NEW TOWN: Reaching our New Town site via public transport is easy. We are a 5 minute walk from the West End of Princes Street. Get any bus into Princes Street, or the train to Waverley Station. Walk to the West End and once you reach the Fraser's building on the corner turn right. Walk past Charlotte Square and once you reach the bottom of the hill turn right. We are in the Citibase building on your left hand side and are located in the basement.
HAYMARKET: Our Haymarket site is 2 minutes up Dalry Road from Haymarket Station. It is also easily walkable from the West End of Princes Street. When you reach Fraser's head straight on along Shandwick place and keep going until the major junction where the road forks at Haymarket (the name of street you are on will change a few times). Take the left fork up Dalry Road and you will find us on the right hand side just before the British Heart Foundation furniture shop.
