On day two of our Edinburgh trip we headed to Locked In Edinburgh to play two of their games. We’d heard really great things about The Secret Lab, but since we were there, we also decided to play The Distillery as well. We’re really glad we did as it was actually our favourite game of the four we played on our weekend away.

Locked In is in a great location, it’s in a former veterinary school on the outskirts of…

Review: Operation Spellbound - Can You Escape, Edinburgh

Room Story - from Can You Escape?

The legendary magicians Morgana and Merlin are frozen in their eternal battle in a cave beneath the Kingdom of Avalon. Every 100 years the stars align, opening a portal to this cave, accessible only by the bravest knights. As the battle wages on, can one side finally triumph?

The escape pod has also been damaged so you must first restore all of the systems before attempting an escape.

Cadets, you need to hurry! The next meteor shower is predicted to strike in an hour so there is no room for error!

Due to our growing obsession with escape rooms, we planned a weekend away to Edinburgh to play a few rooms. This was the first room of four. We’d heard very good things about Operation Odyssey and after really enjoying another space themed game (Interstellar at Trapped In, Bury), we knew we’d have to give it a play.
