There is 60 minutes remaining and you have to find a way to get out of the room. No, it’s not another one of those nightmare flashbacks to double maths lessons, it’s the latest adventure sport gripping the nation.
Escape Rooms pit you against a series of puzzles, challenges, riddles and brain-teasers, in an attempt to find a way out of a locked room. It’s a great activity for groups of friends, offering an exciting game-show experience without having to exchange cheesy banter with an annoying host.
Today’s Big Deal offers an hour-long session with Escape Rooms Scotland. Get out of that one.
Escape to victory
Escape Rooms Scotland have four centres in Glasgow, Dundee, Edinburgh or Stirling offering a variety of fiendishly ingenious rooms to test your wits and ingenuity. The escape rooms follow a theme, such as a jail or a zombie quarantine unit, with appropriate clues and challenges.
Games begin with a briefing from the Escape Rooms staff, explaining the rules and procedure. Then your group is led into one of the carefully designed rooms, the door will be locked behind you, and your countdown to escape will begin.
The games are designed to challenge everyone and push you to your limits. Each room has a difficulty rating and a live leader board to encourage you to think fast and make the right choices. At the end of your game, there will be a recap of your performance and an explanation of any unsolved puzzles that you didn’t finish. The session will last around 90 minutes from start to finish.
The great escape
Escapees have been very complimentary about Escape Rooms Scotland on TripAdvisor. These are recent reviews, edited for length.
‘This is a fantastic fun day out for everyone and it is very clever, keeps you interested and was brilliant fun. We had a shot in the jail break room and zombie room and would definitely recommend both.’
‘The clues are well thought through and make you work well as a team. We had a great time trying to find all of the clues and work out the riddles, great for when you are looking for something different to do.’
