Breakout is a live escape room game located in Auckland. You are locked in a room with friends, family or work colleagues for an hour and have to solve a series of puzzles and mysteries to escape. You will have to search high and low for clues and work together if you want to escape. You have 60 minutes to escape by using only your brain (this may be a problem for a lot of you), there are no physical activities or challenges involved in the game.
It is a unique experience and one that will stay with you for a long time. Each room is carefully designed to ensure maximum entertainment value. If you are looking for a fun group activity that is slightly different this is the activity for you.
It is a mixture of the following: The Crystal Maze, The Cube (TV show ITV), Cube (film series), Saw series, Prison Break, Fort Boyard, The Mole, The Amazing Race, The Great Escape and Knightmare.
Around 50% of people escape. Common sense goes a lot further than intelligence. You do not need any special ‘skills’ to get out of the room, a basic level of written English and numbers will be enough. Each room has a difficulty rating out of 5. Could we tell you more? Yes, but we wouldn’t want to spoil the experience.
A complete mixture of personality, ages, sexes and nationalities play live escape games. Teams can be made up of friends, family, work mates, student peers, travellers and many others. It is a great team and corporate building exercise or a fantastic experience to celebrate a special occasion.
Yes we do. All are welcome at Breakout Auckland be it birthdays, anniversaries, hen or stag dos, engagement parties, leaving events and everything else under the sun. In some escape rooms around the world marriage proposals have even been staged.
Wear whatever you want. We wouldn’t recommend heels, mankinis, Darth Vader fancy dress or full traditional wedding wear but anything can be worn.
Yes you are completely safe. There is no fear aspect within any of the rooms. If you want to leave the room at any point you can. All rooms are monitored by staff at all times.
Our advice would be to go the room page which is located here and make your decision based on the one you like the sound of the most. Of course after you have tried one room you will be hooked and want to try all the others.
Our rooms are designed for a maximum of 5 people. 2 people is the minimum required. 3-4 people however is the ideal amount of players.
The building we operate out of in Auckland does have a lift and wheelchair access. Very few aspects of the game require physical movements but we do advise that at least one member of the teams does not have mobility problems.
No clues require the ability to hear but a sound will be made on occasions to alert people to clues so it is advisable to have one member of the team who can hear. The majority of clues and puzzles are visual ones.
Please contact us if you have any further questions
We would advise only children from 10 upwards play due to the complexity of the puzzles. If the members of the party are under 16 then they must be accompanied by someone 18 or over.
Yes you can. The rooms are all of a reasonable size and you will not find yourself in an enclosed space at any point. You can leave the room at any point if you so wish.
The price is dependent on the number of people who are taking part in the game. The more people who take part in the game then the cheaper the game becomes.
