Time Out says
Tech wizardry is what the six rooms at this Holloway-Road-based escape game are all about. Scenarios range between trying to pull off a Fast & Furious-style car heist, fleeing a superhero’s base while it’s attacked by their arch nemesis and escaping a ghost-packed pirate’s ship. Games feature the gadgety likes of laser-mounted automatic weapons, puzzles on gigantic touch screens and miniature robotic cranes – depending on which you pick – they’ve even automated their hints system so that when you’re struggling, you input a code into a monitor and it gives you one of a number of pre-programmed hints.
Whilst the tech is the biggest draw, it can also be the biggest downside: the hints system occasionally advises you to do things that you did 15 minutes ago and there are definitely frustrating points where your progress is hampered by bits of kit that don’t function particularly well. That said, when everything works well, these rooms can be a joy to play.
Breakin' Escape Rooms is the most immersive and interactive escape experience in London with a wide variety of immensely detailed, meticulously designed, and increasingly challenging games based on famous films and pop culture characters.
Locked in a room bursting with a host of mind-melting puzzles, teams have only 60 minutes to beat the clock and escape. But don't worry - if they get too stuck, there's always our integrated hint system to help out when the going gets tough!
Including a magical Wizarding adventure, a sci-fi epic, high-seas pirate adventure, action-packed superhero movie, blood-splattered slasher flick, high-octane heist thriller, and a dark Victorian mystery starring the great Sherlock himself, there's definitely something here for everyone.
So whether you're an escape room pro or this is your first time, we've got a game for you. It's guaranteed to be a fun, competitive, fantastically frustrating but always rewarding adventure - so book today!

I loved my game at Breakin, we have never played an escape room before and I chose the Sherlock room which turned out to be the hardest, they weren't lying, it was VERY hard. we didn't compleat it in time but one of the staff came in and showed us the end of the game and told us everything we wanted to know about what we had missed. they were very friendly and accommodating. we have already booked for our next room The Flying Dutchman, this time we are going for one more at our level.
Me and my friends have played lots of escape rooms but we werent expecting what Breakin Escape Rooms had to offer us. The tech level was quite amazing, we were expecting lots of padlocks but in the blackwing cave we had lazers and things we had never seen before to deal with. Do not come here expecting an easy game you will breeze through, these are very tricky! With lots of stuff to catch out those that rush, one of our team lost us a good 10 minutes by being stupid! Overall we had a fantastic time! And one of the cheaper escape rooms out there.
