Really nice escape rooms. I've done three at this location, and enjoyed all of them. Do a good job making puzzles that can be solved concurrently so everyone has a good chance to work on getting out. Our room guide Shawn did a good job of explaining the rules to us, and was super helpful when we asked for hints.

Only downside to this location is parking can be a bit hard.

My first time at an escape room. Our group of six had the room to ourselves. The room we chose was pretty small, but it was packed with clever tricks. My only criticisms are 1) The room was very dimly lit, and it was hard to see some of the things we were working on. There was a part where a player entered a space with no lighting of its own, so we had to use our phones as flashlights. 2) Two of the tasks involved tricks that weren't working properly.

Our assigned helper was very nice, and she added back the time she used fixing the glitches. She gave us excellent hints when we needed them. Once the time ended, she answered our questions about where we made mistakes, which I thought was generous.

Let me say this was an amazing and fun attraction!! My only suggestion(really not a complaint but I’m picky these days) is some clarification on stairs and bathrooms... I’m physically handicapped and found when we got there we had not only a number of stairs to go do to our room, but also a very small space to get around(dont worry I assumed this and can walk some). Finally I would have been much less anxious prior to the event if I knew that I would have a bathroom to get to any time needed on the floor of my escape room as I have bowel and bladder issues that make it important if not just comforting to have that information for emergencies. Again, staff and experience was completely amazing, just throwing out some potential suggestions to help with those more inaccessible

Wow! This was our first escape room experience and I have to say that Breakout KC has set an incredibly high bar. The entire experience from check-in to check-out was superb thanks to our awesome game guide, Shawn! Four of us- two adults and two older teens played the Schezwan Secret. Mind you, we all have very different temperaments, skills and interests and still all had an AWESOME time! We used all three of our clues and made it out with just over a minute to spare. It was so neat experiencing the whole process unfold and how it required us all to employ different types of problem solving skills as well as teamwork to make it through. The room was truly so well thought out, both surprising us and challenging us along the way! All of the clues given by Shawn pointed us to exactly what we needed while still requiring us to use our own reasoning. I’m just amazed at the level of detail, skill, consideration and creativity that went into this experience. We hadn’t even made it out of the parking lot before discussing when we would come back and this time bring even more friends and family! I have a feeling Breakout KC has turned us into escape room lovers for life! All in just over an hours time:) Thank you Shawn and the rest of the team for an unforgettable experience. We can’t wait to come back!!

Our family has become addicted to breakout rooms. This was our 7th together and first one at Breakout KC. We all agreed that this was our favorite so far. The storyline and clues were well designed and connected. There were many clever twists and turns and well placed red herrings to throw us off and keep us on our toes. The room and clues were engaging and hands on. Overall an excellent experience and everything we had hoped for and have come to expect in a well designed escape room.

I just turned the big 3-0 and I really wanted to do an escape room with my friends. I had done escape rooms in the past, one in Orlando and one here in KC with another company. This blew both of those out of the water. My friends and I made up a group of seven. Some of us with escape room experience some without. The site's description of the rooms made it easy to get an idea of what to expect in terms of difficulty without giving away too much so I could pick the best room options for us (We went with a 7/10 difficulty). Booking was super simple as well. And when I did have to call with a question, the staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating. The room was very well put together and had a lot of immersive elements. We all had a blast trying to figure out all of the puzzles, and our clue master added additional elements to keep things fun and engaging. I cannot recommend this place enough. If you want an Escape Room, this is the place!

First off, I did my very first Breakout Experience with Breakout KC and I have done almost every room they got. The staff is friendly and helpful and they feel like a cheerleader in the background. The rooms are well thought out and the puzzles are just hard enough to really make you think. Every time I break out of one of these suckers, I feel like I just won a triathlon. Favorite escape rooms in KC!

The experience was very fun and entertaining. We went there for my daughter's 16th birthday. We did not escape, but maybe we will try it again someday. I wish I had confirmed the number of people attending because I paid for an extra person that did not show up.

This is our second time at Breakout KC. Went with our kids and their summer babysitter for my sons birthday. The kids had a blast and there were enough things that they could help figure out and enter combinations that they enjoyed it. The three adults did the heavy lifting but it was a team effort. Had Cole as our "handler", he did a great job chiming in when we were getting stuck and his requested hints were really good, didn't give it away but nudged us in the right direction so we could figure it out. Covid-wise they did a good job as well.

This was my first visit to Breakout or any escape room. I was surprised at how much fun I had. Cole was our guide and he was fantastic. After telling my husband about my experience he decided we'll be celebrating his birthday here as well. Whoever designed the content and workings of my room (Patient 57) made it challenging enough but very rewarding. There was no shortage of things for the 8 of us to do.
