I'm beginning to think I might be an escape room junkie. I just can't get enough. Especially when they're this good!Pamela L.
We did the 'Anna' room at Breakout Edmonton East. I've been to the original Breakout and wasn't floored by their rooms, but this one definitely impressed. The theme was kind of dark and for the first time I was actually a little scared in an escape room. (Disclaimer: I am a pretty big chicken).
As you work your way through the puzzles, the story begins to unravel and everything fits the plot pretty seamlessly. The room has lots of unique puzzles for different thinking styles - not just locks and keys. Kudos Breakout on the creativity and keeping everyone immersed! We did escape just in the nick of time (3 min to spare) which made for a very satisfying experience.
I look forward to trying The Ark - the other room at this location. Just one note, the waiting area is small and eerily quiet, so don't arrive too early.
Description:In 1969, Lora and Chuck Simpson had a baby girl named Anna. Everything was perfect in their quaint house in the South Common for seven years, until the house was foreclosed due to late mortgage payments. Collectors arrived at the house but no one was there. For the next thirty years, families would move into the house, and were never seen again. Police would always be sent to investigate but no evidence or leads were found. In the interest of public safety, the house was deemed condemned and to be never used again.
Now, in 2015, new evidence has risen from the original case of the missing Simpson family. You are intrigued by the disappearances and decide to visit the house yourself. As you walk through the front doors, the floor creaks beneath your feet; there is something wrong here and you get a chill up your spine. What you discover will haunt you for the rest of your life.
