The “Fresh” Way To Experience A Glasgow Escape Room


Put your best foot forward, Glasgow - and with these escape rooms, we mean that literally.

Prepare to take on new challenges, puzzles and fiddly riddles to uncover Glasgow’s murky history and merchant mysteries with CityDays!

Our Glasgow escape rooms reveal more than just your competitive streak. 

You still get all the puzzles, riddles, cryptic clues and challenges of a traditional escape room – but instead of being cooped up inside, we take the games outdoors

No doors. No ceilings. No specific time slots. No hassle. That’s the CityDays way!

Turn A Glasgow Escape Room Into An Outdoor Extravaganza


If anyone’s up for a battle of the brains, we know Glasgow is.

We know you're up for a challenge, so we won't just stick you in a room and ask you to figure the rest out.

Instead, we invite you to try escape rooms in Glasgow that are, shall we say, a little bit outside of the box…

We love the philosophy of traditional escape rooms - you know, working together as a team, solving puzzles, deciphering riddles, all that stuff! But we fundamentally disagree with one point: that you have to be inside to do it.

There’s a whole world of adventure on your doorstep, so we set our Glasgow escape rooms outdoors. That changes the game a bit, so stick around while we explain…

CityDays’ Outdoor Glasgow Escape Rooms: The Way to Play


We're passionate about creating outdoor escape rooms that tick more than just one box.

For over five years, we've been creating games that encourage people to get outside more, explore more and re-evaluate their surroundings.

Most importantly, we want you to have a lot of fun.

That's why we transform cities into playgrounds by creating routes and puzzles from scratch that are designed to test you and your puzzle-solving, teamwork and observation skills, based on the city in question - in your case, Glasgow. 

Your mission is to crack the puzzles, challenges and cryptic clues we’ve provided for you. 

You’ll have to use your powers of deduction, wit and guile to complete the game. Brains, not brawn, will win you and your team the top spot on our Glasgow leaderboard.

Prepare to take on some Glasgow escape room games as you’ve never played them before.

Stick with us to find out how it works… 

How Our Escape Rooms Glasgow Work


Since our Glasgow escape “rooms” are held outdoors, they’re “built” slightly differently. After all, as there are no rooms or physical barriers involved, you might be wondering how the game works.

Well, it’s simple. 

You and your team start at a chosen location (depending on which trail you pick). 

From there, you have to complete a set of tasks, puzzles and riddles, deciphering clues to take you between locations, sent to your phone(s) via WhatsApp. You can't move on in the game if you don’t give us the right answer!

When you’ve sent us the correct answer, you’ll be given new clues and challenges to lead you to your next destination. Each location is located a short walking distance away, and may require you to keep your eyes peeled for possible clues along the way…

Once you’ve answered all our clues, visited all the destinations and completed the trail, we’ll tally up your score. This is based on how many correct answers you got, any time penalties you accrued, and how many hints you asked for. 

All you need to play our games is a phone with WhatsApp, access to cellular data and a pair of comfy shoes. That’s it!

Any questions? Here’s how it works
