About Escape The Past
Escape The Past LTD is a new escape room company co-founded by a Chris Wood, an Edinburgh University History graduate, and Zahra Chaudhri a medical doctor.
They believe that escape rooms offer a great but often neglected opportunity for immersive storytelling. Rather than relying on clichés and gimmicks, they seek to create a real sense of time and place, inspiring players to learn more about Edinburgh’s history.
'The Anatomist' is their first project, combining their interests in Edinburgh’s History and Medicine with a love of great escape rooms:
Set on the edge of Edinburgh's old surgical district, The Anatomist invites you to descend into a world of grave robbery, mystery and malpractice as you enter the study of a 19th century anatomist.
How has Dr Malcolm been procuring bodies for dissection? What research takes place here late into the night? And what terrible 'crime' did Mr Patterson witness that caused him to flee in fear?
Dr Malcolm's journal will reveal all, if you can find it before he returns...
