FAQ: 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.
FAQ: 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 are unable to wait if you are late, and you may have less than 60 minutes to play if you are not on 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.
FAQ: 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.
FAQ: How many people play?
Is there an age/size/ability/mobility limit?
Each room has a minimum of 2 players, we do not allow single players. The maximum is different for each room. Players 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Call about any accessibility questions – each room is different.
FAQ: 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.
FAQ: Can I book with my friends or family?
Of course! We suggest designating one person to place the booking for your entire group. You could have each person book their own spot, but all rooms are first come, first serve. There are 8 spots available in each room, so you will need to book all 8 spots if you want the room to be just for your friends and family.
FAQ: 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.
FAQ: 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!)
FAQ: 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!
