Lockdown is a new live escape, fun, challenging game in Inverness City Centre. Our two different escape rooms are designed for groups of 2 - 6. We lock you up in a mysterious room, and give you exactly 60 minutes to get out. In order to escape you and your team must solve many puzzles, riddles, brain teasers and identify clues. Using your powers of observation and problem solving. Up for the challenge ?? On-line bookings need to be made 24hrs+ in advance of the day you would like to book. For last minute bookings please telephone us and we will do our best to accommodate your request. We look forward to the opportunity of locking you up !!

I really enjoyed this family visit for a special occasion with teenaged children. I would thoroughly recommend Lockdown as an experience. It's not easy and there are plenty of red herrings! Not suitable for young children, you need all your wits about you.More

Second time visiting Lockdown Inverness. Friendly and helpful staff. Perhaps too helpful - a lot of clues coming on the screen which made it a lot easier for us. Managed to escape with 9mins left though so that was good!More

If you haven't done escape room games, I highly recommend them. This independent one is fun and quirky! The puzzles were hard enough and there was even some technology included... The props and costumes added an extra dimension. The only reason I've given 4 rather...More
