Overview

Breakout Entertainment is a live action escape game. In this game players are locked inside a theme room of their choice and given 45 minutes to break out of the room. Each player must explore their surroundings, be observant, communicate with their team, and use their critical thinking skills to solve the challenges and riddles before you can escape. Do you have what it takes to escape our rooms?

Went here with my coworkers after work and we decided on the Vortex Room! The room was extremely fun and challenging and we had a great time trying to escape. Sadly didn't make it but was a great experience overall. Would highly recommend it!

We did the Vortex Challenge and it was ok. Our foursome was paired with another couple that we did not know so that made for some awkwardness at first. While I found the puzzles in the room challenging and fun to solve, I did not...More
