Escape Rooms - Unique and Fun Date

If you’re planning on going on a date for the first time, then you may be wondering where to go. We think that our Escape Games at Edinburgh are a great way to break the ice. If you’re wondering what on earth Escape Rooms are and whether or not you really would be better off with a more traditional date, then let us tell you about our Games and why they’re definitely a great idea for you and your loved one.

Our Escape Games are perfect for a date.

They’re innovative and so different, and a million light years away from a dinner date and that awkward stilted conversation from across a table. Instead you have an hour to play an interactive game where you hunt for clues in a themed room, and once you’ve collected them all you can work them out in order to escape the locked room. Yes, you’re locked in for an hour! 

A unique and fascinating way to spend an hour with someone you like.

It’s such a unique and fascinating way to spend an hour with someone you’re on a date with, and much better than dinner or the cinema, where you’ll sit silently without speaking for best part of nearly 2 hours. 

You don’t have to spend time doing something that’ll make you feel even more nervous.

Why not build up anticipation over what the evening could bring rather than wonder with dread as to how you’re going to get through it at all? In fact, why just have this for first dates, you could even go on a game with your long-term boyfriend or husband. Why not do something fun and exciting with your nearest and dearest and see who wins?

Memories are made of this.

It’s also memorable and provide you with memories you’ll want to cherish for many years to come. From navigating the room together and finding those clues, and all the funny things that happen along the way, will provide you with lots to talk and laugh about later.

Prepare for the best night of your life.

It could even be one of the best dates you’ve ever been on. And as well as this you’ll be able to enjoy having your adrenaline soar as you enjoy the intense joy and excitement of playing the game – together. The rush of your endorphins without the dangerous activities you’d normally have to do to get that. 

Escape Edinburgh – for a unique date in the best company.

And you know what – the chemistry between you and your date could be even better than if you had spent it in a more traditional way. We think you’ll love it and it’s an experience you’re not likely to forget, so why not come on down? Book online or over the phone and we’ll see you here!

What NOT to Do in an Escape Room

Let’s take a look at what you shouldn’t do in an Escape Room, shall we? Hopefully, after reading it you’ll be able to double your chances of winning and stop focusing on things that could hold you back. We love to give our players a fighting chance of winning the game, so read on to find out what you shouldn’t be doing when you’re in an Escape Room.

Don’t touch

If you see signs saying don’t touch, then it means don’t touch anything. We design our rooms and set everything up in a certain way, so you’ll have the best time while you’re in there, and get the most out of the game. There may be some props in the room with you that have stickers on them. They’ll tell you not to touch, and by that we mean really, please don’t touch. Leave the bits you shouldn’t mess with and stay focused on the game. They’re there for a reason, but if you start playing with them, and something breaks, it could not only ruin the game it could leave you with a bill for the damage.

And yes, we come to the bit where we say don’t break things simply so you can find the clues. It really isn’t necessary no matter how much of a rush and panic you may feel yourself to be in. Thrashing around and throwing things about won’t help. Stay calm and take your time, ‘more haste less speed?’ Yes, exactly. And again, you could be left with a bill to pay, let’s leave that sobering thought there for a moment.

Don’t be tempted to run off with a souvenir

Yes, we do have replacements, however they run out eventually, and it adds to the cost to replace them. No matter how tempting it might seem, don’t do it, just stroke them and look at them if you must – but no slipping them into your pocket. Don’t turn into a champion mountain climber while you’re in the Escape Room. What we mean is – don’t climb all over the furniture like you’re traversing the Himalayas because you’re desperate to find the clues. You could cause permanent damage and we’d have to replace whatever it is you’ve broken. And whatever you do, don’t turn up under the influence of alcohol because we’ll have to ask you to leave – pronto!

We make the rules, so please obey them, and we do this because they’re there to keep you safe. It also stops us from having to interrupt the game and tell you what it is you’re doing wrong – when you could be having a great time.

Escape Edinburgh – for the best hour of your life

We’ve told you what you shouldn’t be doing, and you’re now left with what you can do. We think you’d do nicely to just come on in, take part in the game and forget the world outside, no touching, jumping, drunkenness and running away with the bits and parts – and you really will have the time of your life.
