ARRIVE 15 MINUTES EARLY
That way you can enjoy the full Escape Hunt experience without any rush.
Think of Escape Hunt as the closest you’re likely to get to starring in a brilliantly plotted escape movie. You and your teammates get locked in a themed room and have to find and solve a series of clues in order to escape. The pressure’s on, the clock’s ticking, the adrenaline’s pumping. Escape Hunt isn’t something you watch, it’s something you experience – right in the heart of the action. We make you earn your freedom, throwing all manner of devious and dastardly red herrings, dead ends and misdirections your way. It’s completely immersive, utterly addictive and totally entertaining. After Escape Hunt, other entertainment just feels flat.
The whole experience lasts around 90 minutes. You’ll spend around 60 minutes in the room (in fact that’s the maximum time you’ve got in which to escape). Before that there’s a quick briefing to explain everything, and afterwards we invite you and your group to enjoy our lounge, in-house bar and photo opportunity space.
Our opening hours are as follows:
On Bank Holiday weekends and during school holidays we are open from 10am on Mondays and Tuesdays and until 10pm on Sundays.
We think our games are ideal for groups of between two and six. If you’ve more than six people who want to play then why not split into two teams and have a friendly – or indeed unfriendly – head to head competition?
All our Escape Hunt games are incredibly exciting and utterly immersive, so it’s impossible for us to say. Perhaps the best solution is to play them all!
Our Escape Hunts cost £25 per person for groups of 2-3 players, and £20 per person for groups of 4-6 players
Our games are PG unless stated otherwise – so kids aged ten and over are good to go. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult over 18.
Arrangements change, we understand. That’s why, if you can no longer make your booking, we’ll do everything we can to reschedule your game free of charge, provided the new date is within 30 days of your original booking. To find out more or change a booking, please get in touch with the Escape Hunt venue you made your booking with.
Certainly, you can add an extra person to the booking as long as you’re still within the maximum number of people for each game. There’s no need to let us know in advance, and they can pay when they arrive. Just remember we only accept card payments at our venues.
Unfortunately not, we don’t provide refunds if someone doesn’t play.
We’ve put together a range of packages for students, over 60s and key workers as we think everyone should have the chance to enjoy an hour of intense excitement. Now there’s no excuse for not playing!
We offer a 15% student discount and a 10% over 60 discount, every Monday-Thursday. If you book one of these tickets online, please remember to bring a valid ID along with you on the day of play.
We also offer 10% off for Key Workers (NHS staff, armed forces personnel and emergency service workers) every Monday-Thursday as a thank you for helping keep our country in tip top shape. To redeem, enter code KEYWORKER10 when booking online, applies to groups of 4 or more. Please make sure at least one of your group brings a valid key worker ID on the day of play!
Of course – the more the merrier! Our games masters monitor every game on CCTV so if you want to leave the room just let them know and you’ll be free in moments. If you’ve any specific worries then we suggest you speak to a health professional GP before playing.
Absolutely. Our games rooms aren’t particularly confined, and our games master are always on hand to release you the moment you want to leave.
Some of our games make use of special effects, including smoke machines, strobe lighting and lasers. If you have any medical conditions that may be affected, or indeed any medical conditions at all that we need to be aware of (including allergies), please be sure to let site teams know when making a booking.
Unfortunately, as we are located in a listed building that is accessed via a staircase, we are unable to make our Escape Hunt Edinburgh site wheelchair accessible.
Absolutely – our games are thrilling but never, ever dangerous. Rest assured that whatever happens, you’re in safe hands. Our games masters are highly trained and very vigilant, and as you’d expect, player safety is our number one concern.
