Breakout

Breakout

Breakout is a live escape room game - a group of friends, family or colleagues are locked in a room for an hour and have to solve a series of puzzles, tasks, riddles, and games in order to escape. With 60 minutes on the clock, players need to search high and low for clues and codes, solve problems, and most importantly work as a team if they want to win. These are purely mental challenges and there are no strenuous physical activities involved in the games. We are based across two sites in the Manchester city centre - this is our High Street location. Each of our rooms is carefully designed to ensure maximum entertainment value and with a variety of different themes and difficulty levels for you to choose from, there's something for everyone. If you're looking for a chance to challenge your brain, encourage team-building, or just pass an hour doing something a bit different, then this is the activity for you!
