WHAT IS BREAKOUT KC?
Breakout KC is the #1 Escape Game in Kansas City, and one of the highest-rated escape games in the world. We are family-friendly, intentional about quality time and shared experiences, and we’re pretty dang awesome. If you are still wondering what the heck we do, this video from our blog might help.
AM I REALLY GOING TO BE LOCKED IN A ROOM?
The short answer is no; that doesn’t sound safe or legal! You will be in a room with a locked door, but it is equipped with an exit button and you are free to leave the room at any time. Of course, leaving the room early disqualifies any record times.
LIVE ACTOR... WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
The Raid has a Live Actor inside the room to add another level of immersion to your experience.
Yes, they may touch you.
No, you may not touch them.
Any touching of the actors or disrespectful or malicious contact (verbal or physical) within the game will result in immediate disqualification.
HOW MANY PEOPLE PLAY?
Each room has a minimum of 2 players, as we do not allow single players. The maximum is different for each room. Players 13 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
WILL THERE BE OTHER PEOPLE IN THE ROOM WITH US?
This will depend on how many folks are in your group. If the total available slots are 8 and there are only 4 of you then 4 slots will still be available to be booked by other people. They will not necessarily be filled, but there is a possibility that others may buy those tickets. If you want to experience a room with only your friends/family, you will need to purchase all slots for a given room.
HOW LONG IS EACH GAME?
Each game is 60 minutes, though we ask you to arrive 15 minutes prior to your experience for preparation and 5 minutes after to debrief and take pictures to commemorate your victory (or defeat!)
ARE YOU HIRING?
Yes? No? The short answer is: maybe. The long answer is: we may or may not be hiring depending on the season of the year and the amount of bookings we have. We can’t respond to everyone that applies, but we still love to hear from you! We never know when we’ll need someone extra awesome to join the Breakout KC team. If that sounds like you, feel free to head over to our Application and submit one!
DO YOU OFFER DONATIONS?
We sure do! Just head over to our Donations page and fill out our online form. You can then expect a prompt reply via email!
HOW EARLY SHOULD I ARRIVE?
Please give yourself some extra time by arriving about 15 minutes earlier than your start time. Games will begin exactly at your start time. We offer a five-minute grace period at the start of your experience, if some or all of your group has not arrived at your designated start time.
Parking is a breeze at our Park Place location, but the River Market can be a bit tricky. Use this Parking Map for assistance.
HOW DO I BOOK A ROOM?
HOW DO I PAY?
The easiest way to pay for your experience is online – during the booking process. We also accept bookings in-person, where you can choose to pay with cash, credit card, or debit card. The price per spot is $30.
For group rates, visit our Groups & Events Page.
CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE LARGER PARTIES AND EVENTS?
Absolutely! You can either book through our main Booking Page, or email us directly to rent our facility for your party or corporate event. You can also call us during normal business hours to book your group adventure.
WHAT IS YOUR AGE POLICY?
While all of our escape rooms are family-friendly, we realize that not everyone can interact with the puzzles in the same way. For that reason, anyone age 5 and under will not be charged to participate in one of our escape rooms. Anyone 6 and up will be charged the standard rate.
Additionally, if you are doing The Raid, there are some thematic elements that may not be appropriate for children under 10. If you have questions or concerns, please call or email us and we’ll be happy to help!
If you are planning to bring children under the age limit, please call ahead to ensure that we can accommodate your entire party. Fire code limits the total number of people we can have in any one room, regardless of age.
IS THERE AN ABILITY/MOBILITY REQUIREMENT?
Call about any ability/mobility/accessibility questions – All of our locations and escape rooms are unique and some may require crawling, stairs or lifting.
