We did 2 rooms in one visit and they were both great. The Sherlock one in particular had a great range of puzzles and dexterity challenges, and really good pacing. Good cluing system and incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Recommended!

Breakin Escape rooms are excellent! We did the Heist plan which was a last minute swap from Sherlock Holmes because my 18 year old had already done the Sherlock. The staff is really friendly and we had a great time.

This is the second escape room I have been to and this one was amazing! The staff were all really friendly, especially Paul who was helping us out. We did the Sherlock Holmes room and it was so much fun! Thanks for a great experience.

Hello Unfortunately, the maximum number of players per room is 6. However, we have recently opened a duplicate Sherlocks Dispair and a duplicate Blackwings Cave to enable groups to play against each other.
