It’s bitter cold where we live and so while looking for things to do, it’s imperative that it be indoors where it is warm! I’ve heard quite a few people talking about this new place called Breakout Indianapolis and I couldn’t wait to to try it. So when I was asked if we would test it out, of course I said yes!
What is Breakout Indianapolis?
The idea is simple: You have 60 minutes to breakout of a themed room. You and your team must find objects, solve puzzles, crack codes and problem solve your way to freedom. Can you do it? You may be surprised!
What kind of rooms are there?
Currently there are three different theme rooms with a fourth room coming soon! You Check game availability here!
In this escape room, you and your friends wake up handcuffed in a strange room to find out that you have been kidnapped. Luckily you find some clues left behind by the previous victims. Can you follow the clues and escape before the kidnapper returns?
The Museum Heist
It’s the eve of the prestigious art gallery opening and a rare collection of art has been stolen. Can your team recover the art work and return it before the art gallery opening?
An agent has gone missing will investigating organized crime at the famous Casino Royale. Will there your team has become trapped. You need to find the agent and find the person responsible.
Island Escape (Coming soon!)
While vacationing you wake up to the sounds of a dormant volcano rumbling to life. You need to evacuate, but then realize the rest of the island has already left. Follow the clues to get off the island before the volcano erupts and lava reaches the shore.
We chose to do the Casino Royale room. With some James Bond fans it was a no brainer! Choose your team (up to 8 players) and head online to book your time slot. Booking is simple, but this is a very popular place so times do book quickly! If you have less than a full team, you may have other players join you.
The day of your adventure, head over to EscapeRoom Indianapolis a few minutes prior to your appointment. Everyone at the EscapeRoom was very nice. You will get a member of the team to take you back to the room, explain the rules and then is available to give clues if you get stuck.
They don’t explain much prior to leaving the room. You watch a quick video and then the countdown begins. You have one hour! We spent the first few minutes just trying to figure out what we were supposed to do, but that is the point of the game! The rooms are designed to lead you through and we would find ourselves in a nice groove. That is, until we would get stuck!
When we first walked into our room, there were tables set up for black jack, craps and roulette. There was also a slot machine, card shuffler, and a weird contraption on the wall. Looking at the room, nothing really jumped out at you and there were definitely no obvious clues anywhere. The whole thing was actually incredibly clever and full of surprises.
Will we go back?
YES! I thought it was such a blast! I can’t wait to do the other rooms. Or maybe, I’ll take other people and do the same room and act like a total smarty. :)
A few tips…
This is really designed for teens/adults. While totally doable, it’s definitely a challenge! Only about 30% of people are able to escape! We brought some kiddos and while they totally loved it, I think next time I will do an adults only trip.
If you are stuck for more than 6-7 minutes on a clue ask for help! We didn’t ask for any clues and I think if we would have gotten past a few a little faster we would have been able to finish. There are more clues and puzzles than you think!
Do NOT try to walk in for an appointment! Visit Website, book online and book quickly for the dates you would like. The day we went they were 100% booked from opening to close!
