Rated the number one escape room in Gatlinburg, you can choose your escape from a variety of fun options at Breakout Games-Gatlinburg. There are several themes to choose from, meeting the expectations and entertainment value of a wide range of tastes and preferences. Breakout Games-Gatlinburg is an industry leader in the escape room experience, and guests will understand why the second they step into their fun, brain-teasing, 5-star level, team-building activity.

For the person who has never experienced an escape room, consider it as a life-sized game of twists and turns where you are searching for clues and solving puzzles, all in an effort to “escape” the space before your allotted time has expired. Escape rooms are ideal for a couple’s night out, birthday pirates, or team-building as they require everyone to work together to make it out!

For the first time ever, the mystery game we all know and love can be played out in real life. In a reimagined capacity, friends and family get to solve the mystery and save the day by uncovering the secret of what room, what weapon, and who did it. Clue and the related characters, which are utilized in this game setting, are all trademarks of Hasbro and are being used with permission. Game playtime is an hour.

This was one of the first games launched by the brand and still remains a guest favorite. The kidnapping starts with all participants being handcuffed and blindfolded, situated in an unfamiliar room. Using their collective brainpower, the group ideally will escape their bonds and search for the hidden clues that will lead to escape. The game time play is an hour.

Undercover Alley
This set-up allows participants to play the part of an undercover detective who is unlocking secrets among a dark, graffiti-ridden alley to stop the Syndicate before they successfully pull off an attack on Breakout City. Guests have an hour to determine the plot and stop it before the attack is set to take place.

Mystery Mansion
In this room, guests will begin in the ruins of an old mansion, which has been seemingly abandoned decades ago by an eccentric and reclusive family. Since that time, rumors have abounded that a dark sinister presence still looms over the space. Guests will work together, racing the clock to uncover all the hidden secrets of the mansion and escape with their lives.

Breakout Games-Gatlinburg offers one particular option that is different from other escape room formats. They allow guests to choose their escape room, and then they are allowed to play on their own, just their group, no strangers added. This means that a family or group of friends can enjoy this experience without having to worry about strangers joining in.

This company also offers a virtual experience for guests who cannot come to the escape room venue. Breakout Games will serve as Gamemaster and will join your team’s Breakout Video call at the appointed time. Your team can direct the Gamemaster, who is a real person, inside a real escape room, helping them solve clues and escape the room. This is specifically designed for team-building as Breakout Games will provide post-play questions and suggest exercises that are designed to help you and your team relate your experience to the growth and development of your team. All you need to play an escape room adventure either virtually or in-person at Breakout Games-Gatlinburg is a willingness to try something new.

Insider Tips:
-There is no age limit for gameplay, but anyone under 14 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
-Guests should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to their booking time. There is a strict schedule to uphold, so anyone who arrives late might not get the full experience.
-It’s worth noting that guests can always be let out of the room, at any time. No guest is actually locked in and unable to escape. It’s just a game!
