How in the world did these guys come up with this amazing idea!? Breakout Escape Rooms is an escape game company owned and operated by entrepreneeurs Jeff Ciuzicki and Dan Shutz. Their journey began humbly, one day, Dan's office manager Jeff from his telecommunications
business played one of the original vanilla escape games in New York while on vacation. He shared the experience with the office staff and within minutes Dan jumped in and said 'Oh my gosh that sounds like a blast, we have to do this but make it a circus theme'. The very next day they built a plan and started working on it. That was us in 2014, Dan and Jeff, then Opened the first escape game in Michigan debuting the original game 'The Ringmaster's Den'.
Our schedule runs like a movie theater with multiple times for each game throughout the day. If you would prefer a custom time please call.
