ESCAPE Rooms Scotland could be opening up in Finnieston after city planners gave the green light on new premises.

The organisation, which offers people a chance to challenge themselves in a team building setting, want to turn an industrial unit in Hydepark Street into a new Escape Room premises.

Their planning application was approved this week to transform the building which has not been used for 10 years.

Escape Rooms sought planning consent for the building to be used for leisure purposes.

The firm said in a planning application: "The building is in a shell state and has not been occupied for many years.

"We intend a full refit suitable for public use."

Linda Torrance, of Escape Rooms Scotland, explained the business would open seven days a week from 10am to 10pm.

In a planning statement, she said: "We are a small family company, mother and son, and are from Clydebank.

"We are looking to open up an Escape Room activity centre.

"We are looking to provide escape rooms for adults, children and families. We are looking to provide a children's party area to enhance their time with us and a separate adult coffee lounge area where customers can chat before or after their experience."

The firm have four venues throughout Scotland including Dundee, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stirling.

Escape Rooms Scotland describe their experience as a combination of the mental dilemmas of online escape games, and the pressure of The Crystal Maze to create a pulse pounding activity that will make you question your intellect and get your adrenaline flowing.

The firm is often used by business for corporate team building.
