Escape Rooms in Dallas

Runaway Train

You've booked the trip of a lifetime; a cross-continental journey on The Breakout Express. As the train winds through beautiful countryside, news spreads of an uproar in the locomotive car. Radicals have taken control of the conductor’s cabin, planted explosives, and the train is racing towards a non-stop destination in the heart of the city: Central Station. Gain entry to the conductor's cabin, stop the train, and free the passengers before time runs out. Can you engineer a last-minute escape?

Mystery Mansion

This spine-chilling adventure starts in the ruins of an old mansion – abandoned decades ago by a reclusive and eccentric family. Since then, rumors have spread about a presence looming over the old house. Work as a team to race the clock and uncover the mansion's secrets in this all-ages mystery adventure.

Do Not Disturb

A recent string of kidnappings has awakened old fears in the people of Breakout City. You've tracked the Kidnapper to a run-down motel on the outskirts of town. Unfortunately, he was expecting you, and now you're caught in his twisted web of games. This investigation-gone-wrong will send your mind spinning as you try to save his next victims... Or become one yourself.

Island Escape

While vacationing on a tropical island, you awake to the sounds of a dormant volcano rumbling to life. The only people still on the island, you and your team are left to your own devices and must work together to discover the keys to safety before the lava reaches shore. Bring your inner explorer out to play for this adrenaline-packed, all-ages adventure.

The Kidnapping

The kidnapping begins with you and your fellow captives waking up handcuffed and blindfolded in a strange room. With nothing but collective brainpower, hidden clues and 60 minutes on your side, you have to free yourselves before the kidnapper returns. A heart-pumping thriller from start to finish, you can expect a rush of non-stop fun.

Operation: Casino

In this life-sized spy game, you will be sent on a trail of clues to discover the alias of a missing agent, and bring down the syndicate responsible for his disappearance. Follow unexpected twists and turns, break codes and channel your alter-ego secret agent to escape the room in an hour or less. If you’re down with espionage, this is your game.


While on a flight, your plane is hijacked and you lose consciousness as the cabin depressurizes. Later you wake up and realize you're trapped, handcuffed to your friends, in the hijackers' headquarters. Can you lose your handcuffs, find out the details behind their hijacking and escape before time's up?

Escape Room Tips and Strategy

While fun, escape rooms are also made to be pretty hard. (What sort of thrill would it be if our rooms were too easy?) Therefore, learning a few tips can go a long ways to helping you escape in under an hour. Here are some pointers: First, assemble a winning squad with a winning mentality. You need a team that supports one another, as escape rooms are all about collaboration and teamwork. Find people you trust and work well with, and you’ll have a far better time at Breakout! Also, when it comes to working on the clues, be sure to talk to each other and share information. You never know what item may correspond with something else across the room for a solution. Try not to overthink each step. Our clues are tricky, but they usually have simple answers. You need to notice something important or think a little “outside the box” to solve puzzles. You certainly won’t need any advanced engineering degree to beat our rooms. So, if you’ve been working on a solution, and it seems way too complicated, you’re probably overthinking it. Pass the clue off to a teammate, or rethink the way you’re approaching that clue. Lastly, don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it. The hour passes really fast, and if you’ve been stuck on something for 5-10 minutes, I highly advise asking for a clue from your gamemaster, as you’re risking getting too far behind. While we certainly don’t want to solve the room for you, getting a handy tip can get your group unstuck and moving again. And while it may bruise your ego to ask for help, realize that nearly every group will get stuck on one thing or another, and the ones that ask for help when they know they’re stuck are usually the ones who break out in time.
