Great experience both times I have gone. They schedule things snugly so fill out the waiver online ahead of time, head over couple min early because it is in a strip of nondescript businesses and it can be easy to get turned around, etc. An employee keeps tabs on you while you play and is available to give up to 3 clues. I had the same game-master both times, who maintained a great balance between helpful clues that still left us room to figure things out. It is more about being able to think outside of the box and solve puzzles than about book knowledge or education. I would think kids who are, oh, middle school and older would enjoy participating, but kids younger than that may not get as much out of it. Take that with a grain of salt, however, as I work with kids but dont have any myself. The rooms are difficult but not impossible. They cite a 30-40% success rate per room, which I believe - I have done Island escape and Casino, and was with lots of brainy friends both times: the first time we lost/died in a fiery volcano and the second time got out with <5 minutes to spare. This is not a location that has a lot of red herrings, which I appreciate with my level of inexperience. Both times I have thoroughly enjoyed myself. Based on the price for an hour of entertainment I wouldnt go all the time just because, but I would strongly consider it for a special occasion - birthday, friends in town, date night, team building, etc.
My wife and I had never been to an "escape" adventure before and were unsure what to expect. We had a great experience and the staff was helpful and seemed to enjoy playing their parts. The online booking was easy and they sent a verification email right away all of with the address so we were ready to go! When we arrived we checked in and were grouped with a family with two of their young children (ages 10-12). This worked out well as you need a lot of brains to solve the puzzles in the rooms. The rooms were well decorated with many hidden clues in maps, paintings, and "secret" places. Some of the decorations were clues and others just for show which made it a challenge to solve the puzzles to move to the next step. While the rooms were small there was enough space for our group of 7 to move around and search for clues. 10 might have been too many but it would have been difficult to solve with only 2-3. A group of 6 would be optimal and working together is key as each person "sees" things from a different perspective. We had a great time and this would be an excellent team building experience for a workgroup or a group of friends that want to create some new memories and stories to tell others! Have fun!!!
It would of been a much better experience if a host had told us of one of the clues was inactive. the cards hanging on the wall with the string on them she told us not to move the strings until we were certain where we wanted them moved we spent much time trying to solve this part of the game . After the game is over and we inquired about the clue she told us that it was not active that she forgot to inform us that something was broken and it would not work so it was not part of the game even though she had given us instructions about it previous to playing. Of course we did not solve the mystery and we were not able to see the grand finale with the laser activating the Jacks eye. The host told us about the end of the game that we were not allowed to finish because we are beyond her time even though no one is waiting for the room . We had fun although the adventure wouldve been much better if we had been informed about the in active board with yarn on it
Our group of 3 (myself and daughters age 25 and 13) was joined with a group of 5 family members (age ranging 20s to 50s). We broke out with 7 minutes left, after following clues that led us to combinations or keys to unlock boxes holding more clues, or clues hidden in the room itself. Because the clues are not straightforward, everyone contributed to solving some but not all of them; ie., I never would have made the connection necessary to solve one particular clue because of the way I interpreted it, but another player got it immediately because she interpreted the references in a completely different direction. As we neared the end and everything we needed was on one table, there wasnt enuf room or light for all 8 of us to see what the others were doing. Which is another lesson in teamwork - not everyone gets to be the hero every time. Bottom line - loved it and plan to do more "escape" games. Definitely and fun, learning experience.
This was SO. MUCH. FUN. Our family bought Groupons for one another for Christmas-without knowing it. Great minds think alike! Anyway, after coordinating schedules and working with the VERY flexible and friendly staff we were able to schedule the Christmas Caper last night. I really cant say too much about the experience, except that it was a blast. We had 30 minutes to solve our puzzle and it was more intense than I anticipated. Note that it didnt help that my father-in-law spent the last five minutes simply counting down so we knew how little time we had remaining. Luckily, we broke out with time to spare. Overall, I would definitely recommend this as an activity for family, friends, and possibly a couples date night. I will be looking for excuses to go back and try the other challenges.
I had a great time here at Breakout Games. I participated in "The Kidnapping" game and it was definitely not what I expected. The puzzles, clues, brain teasers, and our funny "kidnapper" made the game more intense and fun all at the same time. Although me and my group didnt escape in time, we still enjoyed ourselves and I would recommend this business for everyone to visit. Its different from the typical birthday ideas to try, and the staff there is very friendly. I will definitely come back to Breakout Games and tell friends about it. You get your moneys worth if you come in with a positive attitude and dont take the game too serious. It feels real when youre playing but once your time to solve your game is up, the door opens and you forget its just a game.
Shoot where do I start...... First of big shout out to JUSTIN (Game Master) this guy was phenomenal from start to finish. He understood all aspects of the game and was very helpful in the areas we were stuck in but on the flip side he was just silent enough to help the experience feel real and pressured just like you would want to feel. We did the Casino 10:20 Jan 28th this room was certainly a spin of emotions we started off really well and then it felt like we all the sudden came to a compete stop with twist and turns around every corner it truly was a suspenseful and fun experience. We will definitely return as frequent but also its super affordable so I may make this apart of my weekly routine.
