Breakin Escape Rooms London
I’d wanted to try an escape room for ages so when the opportunity came up to visit one I immediately said yes. Last Tuesday after work I went to the Breakin Escape Rooms with 5 other bloggers.
We arrived 15 minutes before it started as advised on the website, upon arrival we were taken to the waiting area where they had lockers to store your belongings in. There were also a few other groups waiting as they have different rooms available. Our group was in the Butcher’s Lair room which is perfect for any Horror movie fans. The room is based on a fictional serial killer Dr Vladimir Knifesblade. The other rooms include Blackwing’s Cave, Sherlock’s Despair, The Flying Dutchman, War on Horizon Alpha, and Heist Plan. I’m really keen to try out the Sherlock room at some point. All of the rooms are ideal for groups of 3-6 people. Find out more about them here, you can also see what difficulty level they are.
The guy working there then explained a bit more about what we were about to do. Each group was given one walkie talkie. He let us know that we had an hour to escape and can ask for clues and on average groups ask for 5 clues. We were also told to be careful with the props in the room and not to break stuff.
Entering Butcher’s Lair reminded me a bit of the movie Saw, there was blood splattered across the room and lots of severed limbs. I won’t tell you too much more about the room as I don’t want to give any clues away about how to escape.
Did we get out in time?
We didn’t make it out within the hour, but we were given a clue at the end and managed to get out. So we did make it out, just 5 minutes too late. The other girls that I was with had done a few other escape rooms before and said this one was a lot harder than others they’d done.
I really enjoyed this experience, it very cleverly done. Some of the clues were easier than others. Near the end it got a lot harder, I’d be surprised if people managed to do it without asking for clues. One thing I would have liked was to find out a bit more about the story behind the room either in the waiting room or when we entered.
Overall I had a brilliant evening and I’m now really keen to try out some other escape rooms!
Escape rooms are great places to go with friends, groups or for team building activities with work.
