Lockdown is a new live escape, fun, challenging game in Inverness City Centre. Our two different escape rooms are designed for groups of 2 - 12. 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 12hrs+ 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 !!

Great way to spend an hour in the city - we played Lost and had a real giggle. First time we've tried an escape room and we'd definitely be keen to do more.

Hi, What a fab review - thank you SO MUCH. An escape room is always a little easier a second time around - good luck ! I hope you seek out many more experiences and thanks for recommending Lockdown as something different to do.

We had such a good time in the "Lost" room that we went back a few days later to try out the "Casino Heist". Great fun with challenging clues. Thoroughly recommend this.

The 'Lost' game was good fun - had a few unique elements to it, and we received a warm welcome! As an enthusiast, it was nice to do something a bit different (this room is entirely in the dark). Thank you!More
