Escape Rooms in Richmond
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 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.
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.
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 we work hard to make sure the rooms at Breakout Games - Richmond are fun and memorable, we also make them pretty tough. Therefore, going in with a couple handy tips is sure to boost your chances of breaking out in time. Here are some pointers: Come in with a winning attitude and a great group. You and your group members will be relying on each other throughout the room, and your ability to communicate and work well together will likely determine how quickly you’re able to work through the puzzles. Also, players should be supporting one another in the room. Remember, everyone is on the same team, so refrain from petty squabbles or ego-trips. When it comes to clues, look for obvious solutions. I know that sounds, well, obvious, but it’s actually very pertinent to escape rooms. We try to make the rooms solvable for people of all ages and smarts, so answers are usually pretty simple. The hard part is noticing a key detail or connection between items that you find. Each step should only take a few minutes, so if you’re overthinking it or it’s taking too long for the answer to come, pass the clue off to a teammate or try to think of another way to approach the puzzle. Lastly, use the help we provide. Whenever you’re stuck, you can ask your gamemaster for help. It’s sort of like your lifeline. Take advantage of this! While we don’t want to solve everything for you, sometimes a group is genuinely stuck and just needs a little nudge in the right direction to get moving again. I highly advise asking for a clue if you’re stuck for 5-10 minutes, as otherwise you’re risking getting too far behind. Also, realize that nearly every group that breaks out in time gets stuck at some point and needs a clue. Just ask!
