Every question and comment is important to us no matter how simple or complex, so don’t hesitate to let us know if you need additional help.


Yes! Breaking has a parking lot adjacent to the building on Troy Street. HOWEVER, If there is a festival foing on in town that parking may be full and you should plan extra time to park in a nearby parking structure.

iS your business handicapped accessible?

Yes! We do have an elevator and large private accessible restroom.  All of our games are also accessible to wheelchairs. 

where are you located?

We are located two blocks east of downtown Royal Oak on 4th St. Directly across from the Royal Oak Brewery and a short walk to many restaurants and bars. Click for directions.

Is your business kid friendly?

Yes. Kids of all ages enjoy playing our escape games with adults.  We recommend groups of kids book a private room. there must be one adult in the room with kids.

do you offer custom game times?

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.


Will I actually be locked inside of a room?

Some games have you finding the way to open/unlock a door or passage. Others may have you completing a challenge or task. In all the games  players have the ability to quit and simply leave the room.

Is an escape game like SAW or a Haunted house?

NO, other then being themed and looking neat our escape games are not like Haunted houses. The games don't have physical challenges and you don't need to run or defend yourself.

How long will I be there?

The game takes up to an hour depending on how clever you are. You should plan on being there 15

minutes in advance and will likely be in the building for around 90 minutes total. Games start promptly and we can't let anyone else in the room once the game begins.

Is there an Age requirement?

Players of all ages can have fun and enjoy themselves.

If you book a private group  you may bring any age players but some of the game is geared towards an adult mind. A adult must be on site at all times and under 18 players must have a waiver signed by an adult. To play without an adult in the room you must be 15 or older.


Kids of all ages have a blast in our games but we want the game to be safe, fun and under adult control at all times. You know your kids better than we do. If you believe your children may be a distraction to other participants who may not know them, then we strongly recommend that you book a private game (over the phone, 8+ people) during slower times.

Will I be in a room with people I don’t know?

Want to play with just your group? Then buyout a empty time slot or call us to workout the details in advance. No one may be in the room when you book but that may change before game time. Room slots stay open until the max person limit is reached. You may be playing with people you have never met, but that is also part of the fun! As you get into the game, you will be working together with everyone to get out. By the end, you may just have made some cool new friends!

How many people do I need?

You can book one ticket or up to 14, depending on the game. Some games require a minimum of players to start.

Want to book two or more games with the same start time? Call us for a custom package of 20-70 simultaneous players.

What should i bring  to play a game?

Yourself, your friends, and your wits. Food and/or drink is not allowed in the game room. Smartphones are allowed, but pictures and/or videos are strictly prohibited in game environments. We also ask that unless it's an absolute emergency do not text, call or email or message while in game rooms.

how do i book an entire room

to book an entire room you will need to purchase the maximum capacity for that specific game.

do i need to book in advance?

We highly recommend you reserve your spot by booking now. If you choose to walk in, call in advance.

How early should I arrive for my game?

Arrive 15 minutes before the start time. games start promptly on time and being late may cause you to have a play time less than 60 minutes.

can i bring my small child with me?

Yes! any small child that is  immobile (to be carried or in a stroller) can come along with you free of charge if you or your group has purchased a private room.
