Overview

A unique experience that will leave you wanting more. Breakout is a real life escape room game. Using common sense + brain power you have 60 minutes to escape a locked room. If you are looking for a unique and fun activity then this is for you. Teams of 2 - 5 friends, family, co - workers or puzzle enthusiast can attempt to escape. It is a great team building, hen / stag or birthday activity.

Thanks for your question. There's no age restriction to play in our rooms. We do require an adult to accompany children under 16, but as there will be 2 dads this will be fine. What a great choice for a gift. :)

Hi Dawn, we don't do NHS discount I'm afraid, however, our prices are already on a discount scheme dependent on the number of people coming to play! Hope this helps!
