THEME: Your mission here is to uncover the identity of the disgruntled employee plotting against the Distillery, find out what they’re up to, save yourself and save the gin!
ROOM: We had heard so much about the rooms in Edinburgh that we decided we had to visit and see what all the fuss is about! Our first venue was Locked In Edinburgh. We were met by Jackie (one of the owners) and Heather (the gamemaster) and shown to the venue. It’s a slightly unusual setting as they have a section of Summerhall which also houses a few other companies so you are met at entrance and taken up to the actual rooms. The introduction to the rooms was great and we started in the Distillery. We loved the unique theme and managed to make our way through the puzzles at a good pace. We made a few silly errors which slowed us down but the room flowed really well and had a good variety of puzzles within it. The puzzles were clear, in keeping with the theme and well thought out. Heather was fantastic as our gamemaster and the owners were lovely and spent ages discussing all things escape with us.
ESCAPE TIME: 48.12
BEST BIT: The final puzzle was particularly good!
LEVEL: Any, but beginners may find it hard with only two people.
