Current Adventures in Minneapolis

Mystery Mansion

This spine-chilling holiday 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.

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.

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. Bring your inner explorer out to play for this adrenaline-packed, all-ages adventure.


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

Few things can adequately prepare someone for the intensity and excitement of an escape room, but here are a few quick pointers: Work together as a team. There’s no need to showboat or make conflict with teammates. You’re all striving for the common goal of escaping in time. Also, keep an eye on the clock, as time passes very quickly. Lastly, take advantage of your clues. We try to offer assistance when needed, and inevitably, most groups get stuck on something or another. So instead of digging deep into your advanced Calculus knowledge, when you get stumped for 5-10 minutes on a single step, just ask for help. Chances are the solution was something pretty simple that you guys just happened to miss. Trust me, you’ll feel a lot better having broken out after using 2 clues than fretting over what went wrong when you refused to ask for help.

Restaurants and Recommendations for an Escape Room Night

Solving all those clues can leave you hungry, and that’s why I recommend eating out after your escape room at Breakout Games - Minneapolis. Additionally, this space will provide ample time for you to discuss the finer points of the room or any clues you may have missed, and for general socializing, since you’ll all be focused on the clues while inside the escape room. At Ridgedale Center there are several sit-down options, including Big Bowl Ridgedale, Redstone American Grill, Ruscello, Lakeshore Grill, The Cheesecake Factory, and Kona Grill, amongst several other quick eateries. Just outside the mall, you’ll find Bacio, Tucci Italian, BLVD Kitchen & Bar, Leeann Chin, Panera Bread Company, Breadsmith, Noodles and Company, Kip’s Irish Pub & Restaurant, Bukhara Indian Bistro, and Champps. As you can see, options abound!
