Breakout Liverpool – The Heist
The Team: TDM, Mr Carrot
You are a team of elite bank robbers in the midst of your most daring heist ever. You have reached the legendary vault of the Locke and Quay Treasury – rumoured to house the fabled private depository of one of their richest clients. You have 60 minutes to raid the vault and make your escape before the back up security systems seal your fate forever.
I rather like the Breakout Franchise as my first Escape Room experience was at their Chester branch, so visiting always brings quite a sentimental feeling of nostalgia for me.
Today was no different, but rather than an Escape Room, The Heist is more of a Break In Room… but then with the escape bit at the end.
Right at the start I think we were either supposed to be given a large canvas bag to take in with us containing a few bits and pieces to help us, or it was supposed to already be in the room, but I think it must have been overlooked. It was only a minute or so after we’d started though that our host popped her head round the door to apologise and hand it over. No harm done, and we’d been searching other things for that time anyway.
The room itself looked great with a large set of bars separating the second area from the security station part at the beginning. Puzzle wise everything once again made sense, with the only real hold ups coming from us being a bit rubbish and not being able to see what was right in front of our faces. Clues were once again given via TV screen.
Again, there were a couple of nice puzzles that stood out, one in particular in the Vault itself that we liked, and we managed to finish in a respectable time for once. Overall a fun room and a great experience.
