Other Escape Rooms in Syracuse

While Breakout is the number 1 escape room brand in America, there are several other options for escape rooms in the Syracuse area. This is great news! Since escape rooms can be played just once, we highly encourage our guests to try out the other rooms in the area, especially after you’ve played all of ours. In Lakefront, try either Museum of Intrigue by Escape the Estate, 5 Wits, or Escape the Mystery Room. In Baldwinsville, play GR8 Show Escape Rooms. Each of these rooms can provide an hour of fun, and while it’s not Breakout, it will probably do just fine!

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

With all the focus on clues and breaking out in time, you’ll probably find yourselves pretty hungry following your escape room. Also, you may find that you want to discuss all the ins and outs of the room you just played with your teammates (as its hard to do this in the middle of the room as the clock is winding down!). We recommend going out for dinner or drinks following your visit to Breakout Games -Syracuse, and are happy to point you in the direction of some of our local favorites. Close to our location, try The Beginning II, Trapper’s, Twin Trees, Yum-Yum’s Gluten Free Bakery and Cafe, Dosa Grill, Dark Horse Tavern, Tully’s Good Time Erie Blvd, Mothers Cupboard, Delmonico’s Italian Steakhouse, Brooklyn Pickle, Secret Garden, or Red Chili. There are also numerous major chains nearby if you’re looking for something quick or familiar. And if you want to add another fun activity to your escape room, head over to Bowl Mor Lanes for bowling!
