Review by Anneirudh2 years ago
It is difficult to review an establishment when it is the only of it's kind in an area. When you are the only fish in the tank, you are, ipso facto, the best fish in the tank, no matter how pitiful a fish you may be.
This is the case with Breakout Birmingham.
There are only a few options when it comes to Escape Rooms in the Birmingham area, and while Breakout IS the best in town, it is still not very good.
Because Breakout is a franchise, a lot of the puzzles are "out of the box" puzzles you'll find at every Breakout location. This is definitely a one-time-that's-it situation. Once you've played a room in one Breakout location, you can't play it anywhere else every again.
I've now tried the Museum Heist and the Casino Royale rooms. Both provided a challenge. Both had puzzles that I enjoyed. Neither were exciting! Neither gave me the rush that other rooms have in other cities.
While I've seen a few well-done Breakout franchise locations, this one simply isn't cutting it with theming. Imagine, if you will, a (somewhat adult) themed child's birthday party... in an office building. That's what it felt like. The games were arranged appropriately, but there was not effort to make the casino room LOOK like a casino. Same went for the museum heist room.
The folks here are nice as can be- they've got that going for them!
Final thoughts: If you live in the Birmingham area, like puzzles, have some extra $$, and want a fun way to spend an hour, definitely give Breakout a try. If you are an escape room enthusiast and want a real experience, I'd advise you to take a day trip to Atlanta or Nashville and visit the incredible experiences the bigger cities have to offer.
