Northern Quarter – Breakout Manchester, the city’s choice for escape room experiences, is pleased to announce its newest site is open for business at 51 Church Street from Friday 17th May 2019.

Escape rooms are fully interactive spaces where teams need to work against the clock to solve puzzles and riddles, and ultimately win their escape from the locked room. Perfect for fans of The Crystal Maze or Fort Boyard, there are a range of themes and difficulties to suit all interests.

Breakout is a national chain of live escape room games operating around the UK. After the initial success of the Manchester site opened in 2014, this then led to openings in Liverpool, Chester and Cardiff within the space of eighteen months.

They currently have a grand total of thirty-nine rooms across the four cities making them one of the largest escape room companies in the country.

To mark the opening, Breakout Manchester will be running a competition for the chance to win a free game to play one of three early-look games, Cursed Carnival.

The game, where players enter a carnival workshop tasked with solving the mystery to break an ancient curse, is brand new to Manchester but a favourite from Breakout’s sister sites around the UK and is an exhilarating addition to Breakout’s roster of games. It will be joined by two long-standing Manchester favourites, Captured and Vacancy.

New site Church Street is in the heart of Manchester – specifically the ever-popular Northern Quarter. Driven by a passion to provide premium immersive live escape room experiences across the North West, Breakout Church Street provides Manchester with one of the largest hubs in which to enjoy a puzzle-filled hour.

Whilst the location is vibrant, Breakout Church Street is welcoming, unintimidating and priced right – and it adds a sense of fun and adventure to an area historically steeped in music and nightlife.

It’s accessible, affordable and with space for thirteen rooms in total, Church Street is a great place for families and thrill-seekers alike and we cannot wait until it opens its doors!
