If it’s a spine-tingling escape room experience you’re after, the Eeek! Escape Room might just be ideal. This super escape room is located near Anderston. And, while the Eeek!

With stellar reviews from almost every single person who visits, it’s no surprise that the Eeek! Escape Room is so popular.
Perhaps the most popular escape room on offer is their Stuck in the 90s room – perfect for a hit of nostalgia if you ask us! However, if you want a really difficult escape room experience (one that you’re not guaranteed to complete at all), why not try the Magician’s Heist or The Ghost of Mary Queen of Scots rooms?
