There are 60 minutes remaining and you have to find a way out of the room. No, this is not Santa locking you in the naughty cupboard for being bad, 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 (such as a jail cell or a zombie quarantine zone). 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.
Which means that today’s Big Deal for an hour long session with Escape Rooms Scotland would make a thrilling gift for your favourite adventure lover or puzzle solver.
As up to ten people can take part (depending on the option), this would also make the ultimate present for the whole family.
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.

Christmas gift with a difference
Accommodating up to 10 people (depending on the option), this Big Deal from Escape Rooms Scotland would make a brilliant Christmas gift for the whole family.
