Breaking Good – Prison Break @ The Escape Room Manchester

Prison Break -30mins

I think it’s fair to say that everyone with which I’ve escaped has enjoyed it, but none probably as much as the @ecclesladies. Just a week after our first visit we returned to The Escape Room Manchester to take on Prison Break:

You are locked in a maximum security prison and are awaiting your execution. You were framed by a serial killer and you are now facing charges for a murder. There were multiple attempts to escape from this prison but many people failed and most inmates were either killed or recaptured while others disappeared without a trace, giving hope to inmates that there are ways to escape! You have sixty minutes to escape from the premises and free yourself before the prison guards return.

We were warmly welcomed again, and introduced to the new Hall of Fame – the quickest five escapes from each of their rooms. We proudly stood atop the Slaughter House list but were told that a group earlier in the day had knocked us off our perch, as well as setting a new record for Prison Break. Gauntlet thrown down.

On entering the room I was delighted to see. It was dimly lit, but when breaking out of a prison at night I assume it would be. The decor was good, and it was clear what our ultimate goal was. We set about a good mix of puzzles that kept us all busy. I especially liked a couple of physical challenges (though certainly not strenuous) which were a nice change from working out numbers and entering codes.

We escaped in 30 minutes, setting a new record. There were a couple of tough puzzles which we flew through, mainly due to Hayley’s mathematical skills. I suspect other groups may struggle with them which could delay their exit. But others so numerically gifted or escape-experienced would probably be out with time to spare, which is my only reservation on this room. Aside from that I would recommend it to anyone.
