About this Activity
This particular adventure traps you in a mock submarine, where you’ll need to piece together multiple clues and solve puzzles before the hour is up. If you ever read 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea as a kid, you’ll recognize some of the thematic elements … and of course the chills and thrills of being trapped under the sea.
In fact, there’s a good chance you might wet yourself. It’s that exciting.
Note: You must be at least 18 years old to participate without parental supervision. If you're 16-17 years old, you will be admitted with a parent or guardian. You will actually be locked in the room for the duration of the event (one hour). If you do not solve the puzzle within the time limit, event staff will let you out and you'll be provided a walk-through of the solution. The puzzles are designed to be challenging and there is usually a low success rate.

A group of 5 of us went together for our friend's birthday. It was a ton of fun! I had a hard time imagining it before we got there, and I thought I would get really bored or restless being trapped in a room with 12 people for a whole hour. But the puzzles are so complex, and you don't have time to get bored or claustrophobic. It's intense! But overall, I was really impressed. Would love to see Puzzle Break show up in more cities, or have more rooms to try.

Surprisingly difficult, and fun for that matter.
My best advice is that you take nothing as it is. You certainly have to think outside the box.

So I love these escape the room games. I play them on my iPad and love a good challenge.
This is the real life version of those games!
You get 1 hour to run around in a room with 11 other people (your friends or complete strangers) and solve puzzles to try to escape!
Ok, this was NOT easy but that's what makes it fun!
Definitely communicate and make sure to keep track of time! I can't wait til the next set comes out.
Who knows, you might make some new friends as well! :)

I had a blast. It really takes a lot of communication and team work. Everybody views and brings different dynamics. Even when you feel you didn't contribute much you have done more than you realize. It's fun, gets your brain working and absolutely worth it!

This was a really fun escape room. Our party managed to escape in the last two minutes. It was fun. Can't wait to try more :)

Puzzle Break is really fun to do with a bunch of friends! You're locked in a room and you have one hour to get out of the room by solving a bunch of puzzles. I can't give away more but communication is key and all hands on deck are needed to escape.
A full group is 12 people and it is definitely more fun and easier to communicate if you know everyone (minimum 8 people required to play) so round up your friends! I've done both rooms - the first group was 8 friends and the second group was 8 friends + 4 strangers. We were really close to escaping the first time round (if only we had more people!) and we escaped the second time round!
I cannot wait for more rooms to come so I can do this again!

What a fun thing to do with a bunch of friends!
I can't give anything away, but it's an intriguing hour locked in a room that bends and tests your logic and puzzle solving skills. Staff is friendly, funny, and informative.
There are more rooms coming soon and I look forward to doing them with friends and out of state visitors. The location is in the lovely cap hill neighborhood, and there are lots of places for food/drinks before or after.

This was super fun and a great rainy Sunday activity! I played with 11 people I know, which I would recommend if possible, but I'm sure it would be fun with new people too. I've done puzzle hunt type events before, and I will say that being in a specific, staged room allows them to be creative with the puzzles. Looking forward to Room 2!

Decided to do this to celebrate my birthday with a group of friends. We all agreed it was fun and that the puzzles will make you think. We didn't escape, but were close. We needed just about 5 more minutes. Looking forward to the Puzzle Break 2.

SO much fun. I only wish there were a "no time limit" option... our team didn't succeed at completing the puzzle, though we were close. It was awesome anyways and my team and I had a blast. Hopefully they make a new room soon so we can go back. :)
I initially thought it'd be a group of us just sitting at a table solving puzzles on paper, but it's very, very different from that -- and extremely active. Highly recommend this for some saturday night fun!
