Enchanted room with an 11yo
Oct 2020 • Family
Great visit with our 11 year old who really enjoyed his first breakout room experience and is already planning what we do next.

This room takes you to discover, and get locked into, a fairy tale cottage in a forrest. You need to escape before the witch returns and fires up her oven!

Great fun and nicely challenging 3 star difficulty. Our guide timed the extra clues we needed really well, so that we felt we had achieved plenty ourselves, but gave us enough nudges to help us manage to breakout JUST in time!

I’m so grateful that we are still be able to do these things as a family, with Covid restrictions incorporated. We had to wear masks in the public areas, but once in our room we could remove them and complete the challenges as normal. We felt completely comfortable that everything was well managed.

Thank you for a fantastic experience.

VR experience well recommended!
Oct 2020 • Couples
On the 10/10/2020, We were introduced to the VR session by Brooke, who was great at guiding us through the different games available and interacted with us throughout to add to the atmosphere of the games with hints and tips!
Neither of us had ever tried VR before like this, so to have a great guide was really helpful!
The availability was easily found on the website and the location is well situated. All the staff we met throughout were friendly, polite and everyone kept well distanced and safe throughout; would definitely recommend it and shall look forward to going back whenever we can!

A Great Escape!
Sep 2020 • Couples
We attempted the 'Identify' escape, which involves you looking for clues in a murder. Our host was great, setting the scene and taking us through the rules (as well as explaining their Covid safety, which was all fab). The great thing about this room was that the host gave us more or less clues depending on how we were doing. When our time was running low we had a few more hints and we just managed to get out with about 3 minutes to go. Would definitely visit Breakout again to experience one of their other escape rooms!

Overall good
Sep 2020 • Friends
Myself and my friends visited breakout a few weeks ago, and throughout our time we only received a few clues and didn’t know much of what was going on. At the end the host informed us that she couldn’t see us over the cameras , and that the tv wasn’t working properly so we hadn’t received most of our clues. She very kindly said we could come back again for free.

We visited again tonight and our host was very friendly and informative. The breakout room itself was really good and challenging, but the main issue we had was that the music playing from the tv was WAY too loud. When you’re trying to figure out puzzles it’s extremely distracting, never mind when you’re trying to listen to someone talking over the speakers and writing down what they’re saying to figure out a clue.

The clues we were given by the host did help but we wasted a lot of time trying to figure things out and struggling due to the insanely distracting music

I’d definitely return as I loved the experience both times but the music definitely needs to be much lower!

Hi there, Thank you for your feedback. We would like to apologise that these technical difficulties hindered your experience, but we are very pleased to hear that you would still love to return! I have passed on this feedback to staff and we will all be more aware to check the sound volume in games. Please always feel free to let your game operator know whilst your in the room if the music is too loud/too quiet, as we can hear and see you and we want to make sure you are enjoying your experience! Apologies again, but we do hope to see you back again soon! Thanks, Breakout Team

Incredible Game Operators!!
Sep 2020 • Family
My group did the “Disturbed” room. The room was great but our favourite part was Jess T (our game operator). We’ve done several other escape rooms but have never had someone with the same energy before and she definitely made our experience a billion times more enjoyable. The room was incredible but we would all return solely for her ahaha.

Hello, Thank you for your lovely review! We're so glad to hear you enjoyed Disturbed! We agree, Jess T is fab and we're so glad you enjoyed her game running!! We'll be sure to pass on your kind words! As you enjoyed Disturbed, next time we recommend going for another 5* difficulty room like Forsaken (a cabin in the woods themed room with just a 12% escape rate!) Once again thank you for coming to play and we hope to see you again soon!

Incredible.. Captured and Identify with Miss Erin.
Sep 2020 • Couples
We came to Breakout Manchester - High Street - for my birthday to do Captured.. due to something going slightly wrong in our room (I won't give it away or spoiler alert).. we were offered a room for free.
We then come back to complete Identify which was so so fun! Our Game Operator Miss Erin, was super and delivered us clues as and when she saw fit, and allowed us to complete bits as much as could.
You really do believe the Killer will come back to his Lair at any moment!!

Captured was a great room, terrifically themed.
Even though Identify is simple in decor, it was mega thrilling.

Thank you ever so much to Miss Erin 😉 and the Breakout Staff I thoroughly enjoyed my 21st birthday.

Challenging but very funny
Sep 2020 • Couples
Went here for something to do a bit different. Not sure what to expect as never been to any before. Staff were very friendly and welcoming and informative. The game itself is you have an hour to solve a lot of quizes and puzzles each time you complete one, you get another to do until you've either completed them all or run out of time. We ran out of time. You get clues on a screen to try and help you, and its very funny and challenging at the same time. Sometimes you just over think stuff and it takes you longer to solve than it should. But it was a great time doing something different with friends we all really enjoyed it. Very covid safe inside with usual masks, sanitizer and distancing in place which is a big credit to the staff and I felt very safe I thought it was really well organised. We will go back as we need to complete a room and have a more understanding of how the clues and puzzles work now. A very enjoyable thing to so with friends and well worth a visit

Lots of fun
Aug 2020 • Family
This was such a lot of fun. The staff (Ellie) was fantastic. My 12 year old was worried about being locked in the room and she was very reassuring while joking and keeping it fun. Love working out the clues and hints if we got stuck. All in all a great experience.
