The area
Address
Neighbourhood: New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.

    Great escape experience…. book it!
    Had a great visit! Have done a few escape rooms and this was one of the better ones. Kicked off by the charismatic Reece who was on hand to give us some tips…. we needed them! A few themed rooms… Blackbeard done… we’ll be back for another! A few other ‘games’ on site … defo worth a visit
    Thank you for your review and for letting us know how we did! It's great to hear you had a great time with us and I do hope we see you again very soon.

    Worth a visit!
    Fantastic escape room experience! We did the Alice in puzzle land escape room - two of us had never done an escape room, and the two teens had done several. It was an engaging and fun experience. Escape hunt also has a number of other games like shuffle bird, axe throwing (18+ only), and something called crazier golf which we didn’t get to try. Great place to spend an evening !
    Thank you for the review. We always want to deliver the very best experiences, so hope we can welcome you back soon for a 5* experience.

    Great fun for all ages
    We took two grandkids (11 & 8) to the Atlantis escape room and having only done one before we thought it might be too tricky. The lass in charge kept in touch with us throughout encouraging and guiding when we got stuck. It is very impressive set up and we would try another one with other likes. Easy to book online and lots of slots available. Also load of other crazy things to do in the Omni building so we could spend longer than the hour if we could afford it!
    Thank you so much for your review! We work really hard to achieve 100% satisfaction, and it is great to see you had such a positive experience with us at Escape Hunt Edinburgh. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future!

    Thanks Amina
    What a terrific escaping experience. Pirate captain Amina captain made it a real experience. This escape room is truly one of the escape rooms I've ever done. The highlight was receiving a compliment from grames master captain Amina on my piano playing, this was actually quite emotional actually since i actually played the piano when i was a child but quit when i felt too under pressure, which really took the fun away from it, and the large amount of negative feedback. Who knows, if I'd received positive feedback like i got from games captain Amina i might have kept playing to this day. The lowlight was having to leave. Thanks escape hunts!

    Great experience
    Great fun! We did the blackbeards treasure escape room! Our game master Daniel was really nice and encouraging, he was also very patient with us when we were completely stuck! The escape room was very clever and well done. Would 100% recommend to families.
    Your great feedback and rating mean a lot to us. Thank you so much from myself and the wider team!

    Great experience
    Brilliant time at Escape Hunt. We did Blackbeards Treasure - the props were superb and it was very tricky for us as first time escapees. Our Gamesmaster, Daniel, was brilliant and helped us get into the mood with his enthusiastic introduction and subtle help during our hunt. We nearly but not quite escaped. We will certainly be back with more of our family for a try at another room. If you've not done it before then have a go - suitable for all ages. Thanks again Daniel - you made our day special.

    Blackbeard’s Treasure!
    We popped in on the off chance and the team quickly worked to make a room available for us. We chose Blackbeard’s Treasure, as we had 3 people in the team who had done escape rooms before and 2 teenagers who hadn’t. The room was brilliantly laid out and had lots of interactive pieces to it. Even having completed a few rooms before there were sone great things here which I hadn’t seen before, which was refreshing. Our host, Reece, was fabulous. He got us all in character and assisted which some fabulous in-character hints. We all had a great time, and were very proud of our 47 minute finishing time. We went on a Monday so we were able to play without booking, but weekends are best booked in advance. Great for all ages, and experience levels.
    Thank you for your review and for letting us know how we did! It's great to hear you had a great time with us and I do hope we see you again very soon.

    Konnichiwa Samurai-San. Great room with a range of puzzles & tasks
    Excellent set up, room was well worked and challenging although we did manage to complete it in47 mins. We did Fourth Samurai room Daniel, our host was energetic, enthusiastic and accommodating, enabling us to start earlier than booked. Nice that you could take drinks in to the room as it was a little warm!!
    Your great feedback and rating mean a lot to us. Thank you so much from myself and the wider team!

It was an amazing experience, I think the name of our host was Daniel and he was fabulous and had the perfect energy. And if I may ask are kids allowed to participate with zero physical supervision while in the Escape room

It was good fun. Darren was a great host. We did the Blackbeards Treasure room which was quite challenging but Darren knew exactly when to step in and give us a clue. Definitely recommend.

Hi there, Thank you for informing us of these issues that led to a disappointing experience during your visit. We are incredibly sorry to hear your time with us did not live up to expectations.  After a brief introduction, we implore our players to explore their surroundings and attempt to find their footing by making connections between things that stand out inside the room. This is fairly standard practice for most escape rooms but can however be challenging to new players unfamiliar with what to look for. So I apologise if things could've been made more clear and that is something we'll definitely take into consideration while hosting first time players in future.  We have investigated the sound issues you spoke of and have altered some things that'll hopefully make it clearer to understand clues within the room, with great feedback from guests during this period.  We believe we may have made contact with another group member within your party, but are still awaiting a response. We would be extremely keen to know more of the issues you spoke of during your experience, and would like to make amends, set things right, and hopefully invite you back for another experience to give us another chance.  Please do get in touch with us at team.edinburgh@escapehunt.com and we can discuss things further.  Our sincerest apologies once again, and thank you for flagging this occurrence.
