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?

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 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 begins with you and your fellow captives waking up handcuffed and blindfolded in a strange room.

A heart-pumping thriller from start to finish, you can expect a rush of non-stop fun.

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

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

Escape Room Tips and Strategy

While fun, escape rooms are also designed to be pretty hard. Therefore, I recommend getting a few tips for heading inside. First off, come in with the right attitude. Beating these rooms is all about teamwork and collaboration. Your group members should be supportive of each other and communicating throughout the duration of the room. Also, this is no place for bickering or bruised egos. With just one hour to work with, everyone should be engaged and focused on solving the clues. When it comes to the puzzles, try not to overthink them. While tricky, most solutions are pretty simple once you see the key connection. Therefore, don’t go down some rabbit hole requiring an advanced math equation. Spend just a few minutes analyzing a clue, and if the solution doesn’t come fairly quickly, pass it off to another teammates or rethink your approach. Lastly, expect to get stumped at some point, and don’t be afraid of asking for help. Our gamemasters will point you in the right direction if you ask for help. The problem is that many groups resist asking for clues until they’ve wasted too much time on one step, and now they’re too far behind to catch up. If it’s been 5-10 minutes and your group hasn’t progressed, ask for a clue so you can move on!

Restaurants and Recommendations for an Escape Room Night

While playing an escape room is sure to fill you up on fun, there’s a good chance you’ll be pretty hungry following your game. We encourage guests to head out to eat or for drinks following your game, as you’ll probably be itching to chat about your experience with your group members. Since you’ll be focused on the puzzles in the room, having a relaxing, fun time out afterwards to chat and eat is the perfect complement to playing an escape room. Here are some great going-out options near our location on Manchester Blvd. Try Joey B’s Food & Drink, Rice Thai Bistro, Manee Thai, Sushi Restaurant, Merb’s Candies (Chocolate Shop), Pho Manchester, China in Bombay, Steak ‘n Shake, St. Louis Kolache, Burgerim Gourmet Burgers, Imo’s Pizza, or Tucker’s Place.
