Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Escape Room?

Escape room games are live-action adventure experiences in which participants are locked in a room and try to escape within the allotted time by discovering clues and solving puzzles. Whether customers are partaking for recreational or business purposes, escape games will create memories of a great day out. Our games are specifically designed to test people’s logical and lateral thinking processes whilst putting them under a time pressure to complete a series of defined tasks. It promotes collaboration and teamwork and is an ideal opportunity to ‘escape’ from contemporary reliance on electronics and computer technology. You can enjoy an escape room as part of a evening out with friends, a special family activity or a corporate team building event. Our unique games have the added bonus of containing accurate historical facts and can therefore be enjoyed by anyone seeking to learn Scottish history in a fun and alternative way.

Who can play these games?

There are no age restrictions on who can play our escape games however we would suggest that the puzzles and cyphers presented may be too difficult for children under the age of 12 to complete unaided.

Can my child have a birthday party here?

Absolutely! We regularly host birthday parties at eeek! for children turning 10 years old and above. Our Games Masters provide a special ‘guided escape’ and essentially become another member of the team. We help the children to solve all the puzzles and to complete the rooms, whilst fostering their independence.
