Looking for interactive entertainment with an edge? An escape room might be the perfect solution. Escape rooms are interactive puzzles where a team of people needs to collaborate on finding solutions and solving puzzles to escape the room before the timer runs out.
The aptly named Breakout Games, located at 14523 Manchester Road in Ballwin, features escape rooms with a variety of game themes and unique scenarios to complete with friends, family or even with coworkers as a team-building exercise.
At locations throughout the metro area, players can choose scenarios that range from being stranded on an island and needing to escape before a volcano goes off to finding stolen art before time runs out to diffusing a bomb at the Bank of England [as you can at Escape STL, 2650 S. Hanley Road in Maplewood]. The list of possible scenarios, from spooky to action-packed, goes on and on.
