The Games at Escape Edinburgh

Our Escape Games at Edinburgh really are a cornucopia of delight with a variety of themed rooms. There are three venues, Morrison Street, New Town and Haymarket. The 60-minute challenge of the escape rooms is made even more exciting by having such a wide variety of themes. There’s something for everyone, and we can’t wait to see you at one of them. 

The Magic Emporium

Let’s start off with the Magic Emporium at Morrison Street. This is a magic shop with a difference, there are evil forces afoot and you will have to use your best problem-solving skills to get out of the room within the hour. You’ll be investigating the disappearance of someone well known and you’ll need to be on your toes to keep up.

221B Baker Street

Also on Morrison Street, for those Sherlock Holmes fans amongst you, is 221B Baker Street. Break into Sherlock’s HQ and then take something from his bunker and report back to Moriarty. Great fun and so authentic, it’s as close as you’re going to get to the real thing.

The Experiment and Houdini’s Workshop

Based at our New Town venue and every bit as interesting as they sound, ‘The Experiment’ and ‘Houdini’s Workshop’ both have fantastic props and difficult to find clues that will pose a challenge that’s not impossible to beat but will certainly test you.


At Haymarket we have codes, clues and puzzles galore with our Casino themed room. Solve the puzzles and get as much money as you can out of the room before the hour runs out. Are you up to it?

Area 51

Also, at Haymarket is Area 51, with science fiction being the topic of choice and Roswell as it’s theme. If you’re into the mysterious and unexplained, then I’d say this is definitely for you. 


Based at our Haymarket venue, ‘Contagion’ is all about those carefully hidden clues with the contagion film as its theme. You need an antidote and there’s only one way you’re going to get it and that’s by searching high and low for those all-important clues.

Escape Room FAQs

We’ve been looking at some of your questions about our escape rooms and we thought it might be a good idea to put just a few of the most popular ones in a post, that way we’re hoping we can answer your most pressing questions.

What are Escape games then?

If you’re unsure as to what escape rooms actually are, then let us help you with a brief explanation. Escape rooms are all about team-based games where you’re locked in a room with a group of friends and you have to find and then solve a series of puzzles and clues in order to get out. You’re given 60 minutes to do this. Find out more here.

What’s so great about it?

This type of game is popular with students, friends, corporate teams and those out to celebrate big occasions. It’s a great way of getting people together so they can get to know each other, bond, connect and have fun.

How old do you have to be? 

There are no age restrictions because it’s for everyone. However, we exercise a little caution if there’s someone younger than 10 as it can be quite demanding at times. Naturally, if you bring children under 16, we ask that they’re accompanied by adults. 

I suffer with claustrophobia so should I still come? 

The rooms are a lot bigger than you’d imagine, but if you’re worried about it then we can always leave them unlocked, you’ll still have a fantastic time. 

What is the maximum/minimum team size?

We suggest that in order to enjoy the game more, that there two members as a minimum, and 6 as a maximum total, so you’re not on top of each other.
