Escape Rooms in Dayton

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?

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.

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.

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.

Breaking your way into the thief’s home, you must follow clues, find the stolen goods and escape before the clock runs out. This all-ages adventure will give even the most experienced escape artist a run for their money.

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.

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.

While on a flight, your plane is hijacked and you lose consciousness as the cabin depressurizes.

Other Escape Rooms in Dayton

While Dayton isn’t a huge metropolis filled with escape rooms, there are several options in town to choose from. Breakout Games - Dayton has 7 awesome rooms for you to play, but for highly addicted escape room enthusiasts, other options will soon be needed! Another place to try is The Great Escape Game, located in Beavercreek. If you’ve played all these rooms and are still thirsting for more escape game fun, we recommend driving to nearby Cincinnati or Columbus, as those larger cities have far greater options to choose from when selecting escape rooms. However, for the casual player Dayton will probably do just fine! Also, having a nationally recognized brand like Breakout in town does provide an excellent opportunity to play some of the best rooms around!

Escape Room Tips and Strategy

Escape rooms are delightfully fun, but they are also quite tricky and can be very hard, especially for first timers. Therefore, I recommend gathering a few pointers and tips beforehand so you’ll at least know what to expect once you cross the threshold into one of our escape rooms. The first thing to note is that while it can be easy to get overwhelmed with all the various things in the room, focus on obvious clues at the start. Don’t spend too long on any particular item when just getting started as many are likely false “red herrings” or will only be used later. Also, don’t overthink things. Escape rooms are typically designed for anyone aged 10+. You don’t need a PhD in advanced physics to break out! Also, stay on good terms with your teammates. The pressure of the ticking clock can exacerbate interpersonal conflicts, but try to remember that everyone shares the same goal of escaping in time. Squabbling will just waste time. Lastly, we offer clues for a reason. Nearly every group gets stuck at some point, and a key escape room strategy is knowing when you’re stuck and asking for clues quickly. Obviously you don’t want us to solve your room for you, but if you’re stuck on one thing for 5-10 minutes, it is generally recommended to ask for help. If you waste 15 or 20 minutes on one step, there’s a good chance you’ve fallen too far behind to realistically hope to break out. Good luck!

Restaurants and Recommendations for an Escape Room Night

Few things will perk up your appetite like playing an escape room. Most people leave Breakout Games - Dayton with an enthusiastic smile on their face, and groups often want somewhere to debrief after playing. Many things will need to be discussed. Who solved what? How did they find the answer to the riddle, and so on. We highly recommend having a fun dinner out after playing or perhaps heading to a nearby bar for some celebratory drinks. Here are some of the best restaurants near Breakout Dayton. If you’re looking for a lively sports bar atmosphere, try out Frickers, Roosters, or Chappys Social House. If you want something more upscale, try J. Alexander’s Redland Grill or Carvers Steaks and Chops. If you want more of a bar, check out Ollie’s Place Craft Beer and Whiskey. If you want BBQ, head over to Franklin St and try City Barbeque. Several good ethnic restaurants nearby include Nelly’s (Bolivian) and Sushi Hana. Also, there are tons of big name chains very close by including Steak ‘n Shake, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Chipotle, Chick-Fil-A, Arby’s, Golden Corral, Red Lobster, Chili’s Bar and Grill and more!
