Escape Rooms Scotland is a family run company, determined to bring you the best Escape Room experiences possible. We pride ourselves on our ability to create amazing rooms that leave people wanting more, which is one of the reasons that we are currently number 1 on TripAdvisor for both of our venues.
Escape Rooms are the newest craze across the UK in which you will be locked in a room with your friends/family with nothing but your brain to help you succeed. You have one hour to follow the clues, solve the puzzles, find the key and escape.
Sounds easy right?
Every escape game has a unique immersive theme that will have your mind racing from start to finish. It will take you out of reality and into a brand new world of pirates, Egyptian tombs, gold mines and so much more
Do you have what it takes to escape?
Our Escape Rooms in Glasgow & Dundee combine the mental dilemmas of online escape games, and the pressure of The Crystal Maze to create a pulse pounding activity that will make you question your intellect and get your adrenaline flowing. Our escape rooms allow you and your friends, family or colleagues to escape reality and become emerged in an exhilarating scenario that evolves differently with each game based on the varying personalities of the group.
From channelling your inner detective in CSI Glasgow, to climbing aboard the Black Pearl in Dundee, each of our escape rooms are uniquely designed to test your intelligence, your ability to work under pressure, and sometimes even your reflexes. Pick your team mates and prepare to see a whole new side to them as you work together to uncover the clues, solve the riddles and decipher the codes, all while racing against the clock to escape! You will laugh, you will argue, you will be overcome with anxiety, but most of all, you will feel like a million dollars when you succeed!

How escape room games work
When you enter Escape Rooms Scotland you will be greeted by our staff. Once everyone is settled in, you will be given a quick briefing, where we’ll review the rules and answer any questions you may have.
You will then be led into one of our carefully designed rooms, the door will be locked behind you, and your countdown to escape will begin! You’ll work your way through a series of codes, puzzles and riddles to try and find the key to the door. If the clock runs out, you are locked in! Each of our escape rooms are designed to challenge you and push you to your limits. Every room has a difficulty rating; this allows you to book the best room for you and your group based on whether you are an escape room newbie or a Sherlock Holmes level sleuth! We also have a live leaderboard for those more competitive escape room players! At the end of your game we’ll recap your accomplishments and explain how to solve any remaining puzzles that you were unsuccessful in completing. In all, you should plan on spending around 80 minutes in our escape venues from start to finish.
At Escape Rooms Scotland, we believe that team building is an essential part of any workplace. It helps to strengthen the dynamic between co-workers and creates a fun atmosphere in which they can get to know each other on a more personal level.
This mind bending challenge will test your logic and problem solving skills and most importantly TEAM WORK.
If you would like to have your event at our Escape Rooms then we guarantee to make your experience memorable and special. We can also tailor make your experience to the amount of people and times you would like to start.

Escape Rooms Venues
We have escape games rooms in Glasgow and Dundee.
Valid for each of our escape rooms in Glasgow and Dundee.
How many players can play the game at once? All escape rooms are written to allow groups of 2 to 6 people in the room at once apart from some Glasgow escape rooms which are built for 4 to 8 players.
I already have a booking but I’d like to change it, what can I do? We do not accept refunds. We are happy to reschedule. Please give us a call to check alternative dates and times. (must be 24 hours before your game is due to start)
Am I able to purchase a gift certificate for a friend? Yes, you can buy gift vouchers for groups of 2, 4, 6 or 8 players. They are priced the same as any room booking. Gift certificates are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. You can purchase them here!
How long will it take? The scenario requires you to escape in 60 minutes or less from the time you enter the room. When you arrive you will have a quick briefing and then taken away to be locked up. Also leave 10 minutes after the game, allowing us to go through any puzzles you struggled with. In total around 80 minutes.
There is 7 in my group – Can i squeeze an extra player in? Please note that we cannot allow groups to go over the maximum room occupancy number. The limit for each of our rooms is set for very important reasons – Health & Safety, Insurance purposes and Fire Evacuation to name a few.
Do I need to book in advance? Yes, you need to book a time slot at least 24 hours prior to the start time. There are no ‘on the spot’ games simply because the room needs to be set up in advance.
If you do require a game on short notice, call us on 07421995910 and we will book you in if we can.

I already have a booking but I’d like to change it, what can I do? Unfortunately, we do not issue refunds. But we will be more than happy to reschedule your game. Please give us a call to check alternative dates and times. Bookings can only be changed if you give us a minimum of 24 hours notice in advance of your booking.
I’m pregnant, can I join in? Yes! There’s nothing physical, and there are chairs in the room if you’d like to sit down at any point. Also, you’ll have a key to get out should you need to via the entrance door.
Do I need to bring a change of clothes or what should I wear? You do not need to bring spare clothes as nothing will get you dirty, damaged or soak your clothing. Just wear what you want as no special clothing is required but we do suggest flat footwear.
Who’s it suitable for? Friends, family, stags and hen do’s, corporate team building events, nights out – anyone who would like to experience something different! All ages are welcome, though we feel those under 8 may find it too difficult and not be able to contribute too much. Those aged 8 to 15 years must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 16.
Are escape rooms suitable for children? All ages are welcome, although we feel that children under the age of 8 will struggle with a lot of our puzzles, but they are more than welcome to join in the fun! We also realise there are some super intelligent little guys/girls out there, so if you think your little one can conquer our rooms, we’d love to see it. We’ve already been visited by a 6 year-old puzzle master!
All children must be accompanied by at least one person over the age of 16 as part of the booking
Our Kidnapped rooms however are strictly for over 16’s only.
Do you have to be super smart to do an escape room? Not at all! Our rooms are designed with varying difficulties of puzzles within each room, this is so that everyone taking part may have the chance to solve something even if they aren’t necessarily as smart as their team mates.
I’m claustrophobic, is the door really locked? Under normal circumstances yes, the door is always locked. However, as part of your briefing we will ask if anyone is claustrophobic/nervous about being locked in. If you let us know beforehand, we can leave the door unlocked if it makes you feel safer!
Are the rooms wheelchair accessible? Unfortunately they are not. Each of our venues has a flight of stairs to get into it, and because they are all situated in old buildings, we do not have the ability to install wheelchair access of any kind. We sincerely apologise for this inconvenience!
What happens if I’m running late? If you are running late please try to give us a call on 07421 995 910 as soon as possible to let us know. Even if you’re running late we sometimes allow you to play with a reduced time limit. It is likely your game time will be reduced if you arrive late. However, due to bookings after your time slot and the reset time required if you are more than 20 minutes late your game will be cancelled and you will not be refunded or rescheduled.
I booked for 3 people, can I bring an extra person? Yes, as long as you don’t exceed the maximum player count for your selected room you can bring extra people, our rooms are priced per person so you may need to pay extra when you arrive. Extra players are £7.50 pp
What should I bring with me? Your inner detective! The answers to the clues, riddles, puzzles and mysteries are all in the room. This is an intellectual game therefore nothing else is needed. Just apply deductive reasoning and logic to escape.
How does the game end? Either you are successful and find the key to the room in less than 60 minutes or you have been unsuccessful and we may eventually decide to let you out!!!
