    This "escape room" experience took us to places in Edinburgh that we would not see otherwise, and the stories were very interesting. However, it felt a bit short; we would like at least the double amount of questions!

It was a fun way to get to know cool spots in the city and we saw things we wouldn‘t have noticed without this game! The riddles are great fun, would recommend it to everyone who likes solving riddles and walking around to search for the answers

A great idea to see places / things that we would not otherwise have noticed. Unfortunately, some of the paths were closed, so we were forced to skip the question in order to continue. If all paths are open, a great quiz and full 5 stars.
