The Great Escape at Dundas Castle

Luxury venue, Dundas Castle has launched an exhilarating Escape Room offering, in partnership with event management agency, Maximillion.


Available as part of exclusive-use corporate and private Castle bookings, the bespoke Escape Room option is installed as a completely unique breakout room in the venue, with the choice of three different themes. Participants can choose from ‘Abandoned Hospital’ in the Billiard Room, ‘Castle Crime Scene’ in one of the venue’s 17 bedrooms, or ‘Office Lockdown’ in the Library.

The chosen room is set up with décor to suit the theme, and the teams of six to ten participants are given a specific brief before entering. Once the door is locked behind them, they have one hour and must work together to search through props and paperwork to work out the chain of events and codes to break out of the room.

Organisers can choose one room option, or for competitive events, groups can be split into teams and rotated through two or three rooms, with the winning team the one that escapes out of all the rooms in the lowest combined time.

Louise Andrew, general manager at Dundas Castle says: “This is a fun and exciting new option for our guests, and is perfect for team building. We’ve loved working with Maximillion to be able to offer a unique, adrenaline-charged experience – it’s creative, entertaining and brings out everyone’s competitive edge. We’re thrilled to add it as an option for events, and look forward to seeing who can escape the quickest!”

Ross Gardiner, operations manager at Maximillion adds: “We’re absolutely delighted to add this unique activity to our ever-growing portfolio of events and experiences, and we can’t think of a better venue than Dundas Castle to really enhance and bring these themes to life for guests. We have themes and content available for both corporate team building groups as well as for private group bookings.”
