So we went for our first game in Vacancy. It was grand and the games master was super helpful when we got at a very loose end. He had good banter but we cannot remember his name. If he remembers the magical theme park in Devon, that was our guy 😉

Then we decided to do Disturbed and had John. When one of us (me) was a bit scared of the room he happily put us at ease and had good banter with us whilst dealing with our huperactivity. Throughout the game, he gave us good banter on the screen which did really help keep us in check and encourage us. We finished Disturbed with 15 mins to spare, which he commended us greatly and continued his good banter and lovely vibes as he sent us on our merry way!

I havent been to Breakout in a few years, and this was the first time all of us did one together. Needles to say, I hope we can be back soon

Tell John we hope to see him at MCR (Taylor's Version)

Hi! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a kind review! We're glad that you enjoyed yourselves so much that you had to play twice and congrats on escaping Disturbed with 15 minutes to spare! We'll be sure to pass your kind words on to David and John as we're sure they'll be thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed yourselves. If you want to play again we'd highly recommend checking out SABOTAGE or FORSAKEN which are our two other 5 star games. Kind regards, The Breakout Team.

We saved the Elf with less than a minute to spare! It was a lot of fun, really frustrating, but fun! A massive shout out to our brilliant games host Jack, (Agent/Asian Antlers). We couldn't have got out without you. Also, I really liked the fact you didn't just read off a script. You reacted to what we were like, made it more personal to us and generally made the game a lot more enjoyable. Thanks a lot, we will be back!!

Went here last week with my girlfriend and had a great time! Some puzzles are more challenging than others and there are quite a few red herrings to try and throw you off. Luckily, if you're ever stuck you'll be given a hint and I feel like they timed these perfectly, so props to the guy and girl (forgotten their names!) watching over us. Only issue is some of the doors weren't working properly and some of the locks were already completed after we walked in because they hadn't been properly reset, but it was nothing game changing. Highly recommend!

Gary has been absolutely amazing and created a lovely experience for our first ever breakout in the Enchanted room. His contributions have been amazing and the support and encouragement provided to us at the beginning have allowed us to get past the nervousness before entering the room. The clues and directions provided were clear and we couldn't have been luckier to have Gary support us throughout. We can't wait to try another room.

We’ve done a lot of the Breakout rooms before - we are working our way through them all! - but today was particularly good! This was not only down to the room being great, but our Games Master, Gary, was superb. He immediately put us at ease and was so welcoming, friendly and encouraging, making us feel right at home. He was attentive throughout the game, delivering clues as and when we asked, rather than bombarding us with them throughout. He really is an asset to the Breakout team and when we come back, I hope we’re lucky enough to have him run our room again! Thanks so much, Gary!

Lovely family outing. We are two adults and a 7yr old. We contacted beforehand to ask about suitability for a young one and were recommended rooms that would be best. They gave details of what would be scary in the room I thought would be best. Consequently we chose one I never would’ve picked but glad we followed their advice. Really appreciated this helpful communication beforehand.
I have always thought that breakout rooms are expensive but they are a nice treat. Our game master was absolutely lovely. The pre room chat was great and gave us advice on a couple of things we needed to know about certain locks. We loved our breakout room so much. Our daughter was really engrossed in it. Got good clues from our game master and we escaped with time left on the clock. We were really happy with our little adventure and will no doubt book another one soon.

Hi there, Thank you for your review, they are always much appreciated. Glad to hear you had such a positive experience, it can be difficult trying to make the correct decision when considering the needs of a young player, and we're happy that the advice we gave you worked out so well. We'd recommend either Most Wanted or Cursed Carnival (don't let the name fool you, it's not a scary game, it's like being in a Circus) for your next game if you haven't already played those. Both of these rooms are lots of fun for the younger team members. We look forward to seeing you again soon! Breakout Team

Really amazing experience, we did the max scientist room and had an absolute blast. Becki deserves a special shout out for making our experience worth every penny. She was so lovely, welcoming and made sure that we were comfortable and answered any question we had (regardless of how strange they were). The room was creative and was a two start difficulty rating but had so much to get through in the space of an hour.

Overall top place with excellent staff and all round fun experience 💕

I’ve been to plenty of escape rooms before and many have puzzles that don’t seem to connect or require great leaps of logic. This was not the case. Vacancy A has varied and challenging puzzles a plenty, even when we were stumped we never felt lost. There was always clear progress to make and with guidance from Vince we had a blast, highly highly recommended. Will be coming back.

Hello! We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed your time with Vacancy A!! We'll also pass on your kind words to Vince, he'll be delighted to know he made a positive impact on your time here! Since you enjoyed Vacancy A, we would highly recommend playing Captured A, which is of similar difficulty to Vacancy. It's loosely based off of the Saw movies and has puzzles that lead into one another, much like Vacancy A. We look forward to welcoming you back! All the best, The Breakout Team

Me and my girlfriend just tried Captured B, our first ever attempt at an escape room. Think it was a 4 out of 5 star difficulty and we found it a bit difficult, but our host Emiylia (sorry if I’ve butchered your name, your handwriting is very posh!) was really nice. She took the time to explain us through the game, sent us (plenty) of clues and then at the end talked us through the game. She was really attentive and we hope we gave you a laugh or two at our expense! Would definitely come again.

I speak on behalf of all my friends when I say that this was the best escape room we've ever been to! We didn't actually escape as it was quite a bit more difficult than we expected, but that's not an issue, we had a great time and I thought the escape room we did (vacancy B) was really well designed and thought out.

I don't normally leave reviews ever, but was compelled to leave a review to compliment Jonny as he was the best!! Before the escape room started, he described the room so well that we fully felt involved in what was going on. In other escape rooms I've been to, the game master wasn't as enthusiastic so I applaud Jonny for that as it made it so much more fun for me and my friends. When we were struggling, we'd give a quick wave to the camera and he would give us a hint, hints which were always helpful but without revealing too much of the task at hand.

After the escape room was completed, I asked Jonny for some advice as to what there is to do in the area as me and my friends were only visiting Manchester for the day and we weren't too familiar with the area that we were in. He took time to give us suggestions and pointed us in the direction of the nearest cinema, which I thought was so lovely and so nice as he didn't need to do that at all, it was him making the extra effort to be a great person and I really appreciated that!!! Oh and thank you Jonny for your movie suggestion we all loved the film :)

Please pass this on to Jonny as he alone made the whole experience for us! The kindness and genuineness he showed at the end was really appreciated and we will definitely be coming back because of the great service that he provided, so again, thank you so much Jonny!

Hi Serena, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review! Jonny is an extremely valued member of staff, and he will be ecstatic to know you had such an amazing time playing Vacancy B despite the fact it's quite tricky. We hope to see you again next time you are visiting Manchester! I recommend 'Cursed Carnival' as it's a 3 star room, but it is still challenging. Thank you again for the review! Many thanks, Breakout team
