Breakout Manchester reveal location of brand new Northern Quarter site


Breakout Manchester, the popular choice for escape room experiences, has revealed the location of a brand new site at 51 Church Street in the Northern Quarter.

It will provide Manchester with one of the largest hubs in which to enjoy a puzzle-filled hour.

To start with, it will offer three revamped games: Cursed Carnival, new to Manchester but already proving popular at other Breakout sites, and long-standing Manchester favourites Captured and Vacancy.

And with space for thirteen rooms in total, fans can expect to see a roll-out of new games every month going forward.

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.

The national chain of live escape room games was one of the first companies to open in the UK. They currently have a grand total of thirty-nine rooms across four cities making them one of the largest escape room companies in the country.

“We’ve had five fantastic years at our Town Hall site, where Breakout established itself as the city’s choice for escape room experiences,” said Breakout director Ed Roberts.

“I’m excited for our next chapter after securing a long term contract for Church Street, which is in the heart of the vibrant Northern Quarter.”

To mark the opening, they are running a competition to win a free game at the new site.

A great place for families and thrill-seekers alike, the new site opens its doors on Friday 17th May.

Watch this space.
