Exit Plan Edinburgh is a live escape room experience. We essentially lock groups of players into a gaming area consisting of multiple rooms. They need to find clues and solve a variety of fun and challenging puzzles to ‘escape’ within the 60 minute time limit.

It is important to us that we are not just simply another escape game.   We aim to give our guests the best experience possible and go the extra mile. We also aim to have the most fun, challenging and unique games.


As a Gamesmaster, you will be the ‘face’ of the company to our guests.  When the group arrives at their pre-booked time, you will meet and greet them and give them a short briefing of the game they are about to play including outlining the storyline.

A summary of your responsibilities are:

  • Meet and greet guests in a friendly professional manner

  • Monitor the progress of the group as they play the game, offering clues where necessary
  • Reset the puzzles in the game ready for the next team
