Basement 1, 25 Nicolson Square, EH8 9BX
Played a preview game (as the venue officially opens on Monday), this is the first room from Escape the Past and for those of you who have been playing rooms for years may remember Dr.Knox in Edinburgh, this has a similar theme of the anatomists and their dubious ways of getting dissection corpses.
The setting is perfect for the theme, the surgeons hall is just around the corner and you're in the basement of a church building, but what will immediately strike you is the attention to detail they have put in with the decor, everything fits the setting beautifully and some serious thought has gone into placement of the props and puzzles so signposting is intuitive and enhances the gameflow. Immersion is also excellent as all senses are employed to immerse players.
As with many great rooms it initially looks like theres not much to do, but you'll soon think differently as this room is packed with puzzles and it is a good challenge for enthusiast teams.
A final bonus is that they're only a few minutes walk from Locked in Edinbugh, so if you're heading to Locked in then you really should book this one too.
