RECENT REVIEWS OF The Break Out - Hyde Park ESCAPE ROOM
As a non native English Speaker, I thought it would be a bit too challenging for me, but I was amazingly surprised by how much fun I had. It was a great way to bond with my colleagues, explore the park, compete with stranger (hehe, and meet them) and burn a few calories (rapidly recovered at the pub afterwards). Thank you for a great experience!
Having done a lot of escape rooms, I wasn't sure what to expect from an outdoors-based one ... and what a surprise it was! The clues were fun and challenging enough, the app easy to use, and overall we had a blast. Definitely a good activity for a group of friends or colleagues.
I did this with some colleagues and had great fun! We loved the combination of the scavenger hunt side of trying to find certain statues/signs in the park using the map and the logic puzzles which we did as a team. We got quite competitive with the other teams playing at the same time as us so walked fast/jogged most of it so felt like we'd had a bit of a work out! You can definitely walk it though if you prefer. Would highly recommend this as a fun way to explore Hyde Park!

We played this game as part of a team social with work and absolutely loved it! It was the perfect activity - engaging, fun, challenging but accessible, and brilliant being outside and active! Loved the mix between puzzle solving, exploring Hyde Park and getting some exercise. I would highly recommend!

Annoying that the premise for completing was walking fast and not related to puzzle solving skills at all. We walked at a moderate pace and had no troubles with the puzzles at all and still we only completed 4 out of 6.... also there was no cooperative ellements at all like two players having two pieces of the puzzle. Also I feel that there were a lot of missed opportunities for making more engaging content... such as video elements like short video messages from mike...., or integrating sms or phone calls or even using the gps... or even using augmented reality content, all of witch might have made this a cool experience that was worth the money. As it is I feel cheated out of my money and would make an effort not to recommend it to others on social media.

I took part with my work colleagues as part of our xmas party shenanigans, and it was really fun. It was a good bonding exercise, we got some actual exercise and the clues were a good variety of lateral and logical thinking. Would highly recommend.

Good! Gives you enough time to not stress but does add pressure. Would recommend for a nice walk out

My friends and I had a fantastic time- cracked the clues in just the nick of time.
