About The Big Escape Edinburgh

The Big Escape is a city-wide Escape Game played on your smartphone.
We turn the city into a giant escape game whereby teams must race around the city cracking codes, solving puzzles and completing challenges... without getting caught.

You'll have some help from Dan Rooney and his crew (pre recorded virtual characters). Each team will rack up points as they move across the city by solving a range of Escape Game style challenges and puzzles. Teams with the most points that blow open the Casino safe and escape the city without the cops catching them wins.

How to play:
• Get your ticket - one ticket per team of up to 6 players.
• We will send you a pre-game briefing via email before the event.
• Arrive at the start location & start anytime you want on the day.
• The game is played on our purpose-built app.
• Escape the city before the other teams.
• Score as many points as possible to win and climb the scoreboard for your city.

What you need:
• One team ticket for up to six players
• Android or iOS Smartphone
• Dressing up is optional but good fun
• Bring your A-game, you'll need it to escape!
• Suitable for families

Come join us for on an escape adventure throughout your city! The Big Escape is available in 32 cities across the UK.

Can you escape the city?!
