Breakout Manchester is a live escape room game located in the centre of Manchester. You are locked in a room with friends, family or work colleagues for an hour and have to solve a series of puzzles, riddles, and tasks to escape. You will have to search high and low for clues and work together to be in with a chance of breaking out. 60 minutes might sound like a lot of time, but it will fly by as we test your puzzle-solving, lateral thinking and team-working skills. There are no physical activities or challenges involved in the game, it is purely a mental challenge.


It's easy to reach Breakout Manchester in Manchester city centre, by train. Simply hop on a train to Manchester Piccadilly station - then it's a short walk through the city from Piccadilly or Victoria.
