After doing several of Breakouts rooms this was quite disappointing, a plain room and unoriginal idea. They have much better rooms than this one.
First game at Breakout and it won't be the last! We had a lovely host who explained the game and set the story well. Quite an open game so we were able to spilt up and tackle this one! The spy theme was done well, and my lads loved this!
Putting aside a few puzzles that didn’t fit the theme at all, this was a really enjoyable room. A wide varied of things to solve, and the fact that it is non-linear (sort of) helps you in case you get stuck on one puzzle for too long. Unfortunately some people burst into our room whilst we were playing, I doubt it was the fault of the GM though, just excitable customers. The best room we’ve done at B.L., still the same sort of quality you’d expect in decor/props etc.
This room has the interesting concept that you are training to be a spy and have to complete multiple tasks using different skills to pass your final exam.
The puzzles have big variety, covering mental and physical type challenges.
This room is a competitive room, with a copy next door so that two teams can race. You can see into the other room, although we only did it as a 2 so no one was in the other room. The room is pretty bare except for the puzzles so don't expect to be blown away with immersion, but that is because the concept is based within the puzzles, not the location.
A different kind of escape room overall, which is very fun and emulates the theme well but don't expect much story.
