About
Breakout Saint John offers both onsite and offsite activities for the whole family. Onsite, we offer themed escape rooms - rooms filled with challenging and originally put together puzzles. Live out a movie/video game and complete your challenge before the time runs out! This is great for an evening out with friends or family and is also perfect for team building and corporate events. Bring your team of 2-8 players/room and try to escape our themed rooms within 60 minutes using only your thinking, teamwork and problem solving skills. We also offer a self-guided Puzzle Hunt that will take you on a walking tour of Uptown Saint John where you will see and learn about some historical aspects of our city while solving our challenging puzzles. This Puzzle Hunt requires the use of a mobile device. Looking for something to come to you? We also offer portable games for small and large groups. Check out our website for more information about the games we have available.

Visited with four kids under twelve and one adult. Did the pirate room. Definitely recommend more than one adult in your group 🤣. The staff were great and gave us lots of hints and some extra time. Everyone really enjoyed it and the puzzles were interesting and well thought out. We won't be competing on the crystal maze any time soon though!

We had a great time! Will definitely be returning, the staff were A+!

The Haunting of Whalton House room was very challenging and scary.

Can’t wait to try the other rooms.

Great experience, family friendly and kind staff. We showed up last second and they slid us right in. They even let us stay over the timer to complete out escape room.

We went yesterday (July 2022) and it was an average experience. I have been many times since Breakout Saint John opened and have had a mixture of both good and bad experiences, but this one was just ok. There were probably have 5 or more puzzles that malfunctioned, leaving us thinking we did not have the correct answer because nothing would happen. Doors wouldn't release, and hidden compartments wouldn't open, even when the puzzle was done properly. This took a lot of time and was disappointing when we did solve the puzzle but nothing happened. We also didn't have a functioning hint button, which made it difficult to gain the attention of the staff when we needed a hint. We were a large group and it did cost a significant amount of money to play, and was a bit disappointing when things were not working as they should.

On the upside, the one staff member we did interact with was very friendly and did come and check on us a few times.

Overall I would rate this experience a 3/5.

Awesome time, well done. Lots of puzzles to solve in the room. We had a group of 5 and that seemed to be just enough people so things didn't get confusing. Will definiately try another room soon. Thank you

After having done a couple of breakout rooms almost yearly since this business was in its original location, we returned to do the latest addition. The room was rated as a high difficulty but that hadn’t stopped us on other high difficulty rooms before. The overall build quality and function of the puzzles in the room was not as good as it used to be. We had portions of the puzzles solved that wouldn’t work because they didn’t stay in place, controls that were finicky and an interactive portion that we had attempted and completed but “didn’t give enough time for” to work. It resulted in having to call in the attendant several times to determine we had already solved a puzzle. This used to be well worth the cost for the entertainment value but our most recent experience was disappointing. The concept is there but the polish that used to be is no more. It results in an overall frustrating experience for customers when what is supposed to be an intellectual challenge turns into an exercise of troubleshooting puzzles that are already solved.

We tried two different rooms. The themes were interesting. The decor was well done. The puzzles were interesting, challenging, but generally made sense. Great experience overall.

Went to do the Jewel of Wintercloak room. It was a fun room with good puzzles and a neat story, but way too many of the room's items were broken or not functioning which made solving the puzzle even more difficult and made it so we had to keep calling the attendant in. . . Not sure I could justify $25 per person with 4 people needed for the puzzle with the number of things broken in the room.
