Escape Rooms in Milwaukee

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.

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.

Museum Heist

As former art thieves, you and your friends are hired to find a rare collection of stolen artwork on the eve of a prestigious gallery opening. 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.

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.

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 many think that an escape room will be easy and that they can just casually stroll in and break the room’s record time, they will be sorely disappointed the moment they enter the room. Escape rooms are actually quite tricky and hard, but with a few pointers about what to expect, you’ll have a good chance of breaking out in under an hour. The important thing is to work well with your group. Communication is key. You see something interesting in this corner, and then tell your teammates about it. There’s a good chance it corresponds with something else across the room. You have to discuss the finding to solve the puzzle. Also, try to come in with a positive attitude. Encouraging one another can be so constructive, while the opposite and be equally destructive. When working on puzzles, look for the obvious answer. Most clues are actually pretty easy, but you’ll have to notice a key detail or think a bit outside of the box. If it feels like you’re over analyzing it, then you probably are. Pass the clue off to someone else or come up with a new strategy to solve it. Another important thing is to use the clues we provide. Just about every group will get stuck somewhere in the room, and the ones that refuse to ask for help generally don’t break out. Instead, if you’ve been stuck on any one step for 5-10 minutes, just ask for help and move on. We don’t want to solve the whole room for you, but sometimes no one in your group happens to see the solution, and we can help you get past it. And remember, an hour passes very quickly in our rooms…

Restaurants and Recommendations for an Escape Room Night

After your escape room at Breakout, I recommend heading out to eat afterwards to complete a fun evening out. All that thinking may leave you hungry, and a good restaurant provides a fabulous ambience for discussing the finer details of the room and your group’s experience there. There are numerous great options very close to Breakout Games - Milwaukee, including PHO One24, Noodles and Company, Arriba Mexican Restaurant & Lounge, Butler Inn, Pizza Man Tosa, India Garden, Taqueria El Jefe, Boulder Junction Charcoal, and Sluggo’s Sports Pub & Grill. If you’re looking to grab drinks, try out Bottoms Up Tavern. Or, if you want to continue the fun with another activity, check out Bowlero Wauwatosa for bowling.
