Overview

Breakout Saint John offers themed escape rooms - rooms filled with challenging and originally put together puzzles. Live out a movie/video game and complete your challenge before the time runs out! This is great for an evening out with friends or family and is also perfect for team building and corporate events. Bring your team of 2-8 players and try to escape our themed rooms within 60 minutes using only your thinking, teamwork and problem solving skills. We also offer a self-guided Puzzle Hunt that will take you on a walking tour of Uptown Saint John where you will see and learn about some historical aspects of our city while solving our challenging puzzles. This Puzzle Hunt requires the use of a mobile device. Check out our website for more information about the games we have available.

We were all seasoned players and found the room quite difficult but very enjoyable. I think mixed ages groups are better. We barely made it half way and I wish that the game host had told us that we could return at a discounted price...More

Great staff...very friendly and supportive. Definitely recommend this for a night out with friends and/or family. Even for businesses, create a group and try to BREAKOUT. I've tried several rooms and have been successful with a few. Rooms are very creative and amazingly thought out.
