What are these "escape rooms" everyone's been raving about? You finally decided to find out for yourselves and book one. Everyone has to start somewhere! Here is a list of all escape rooms for beginners in Sydney. Experienced players can also pretend to be newbies and enjoy a balanced combination of puzzles and props.
Unexpectedly exciting experience. Tried the avatar theme tonight. The puzzles are unpredictable. Appreciate the settings from the designers. Friendly staffs, big rooms and comfortable environment. It is highly recommended!!Wong
Annihilated the Avatar room. Loved it looking forward to come here againMark
I've tried out 31 escape rooms across Australia at the time of writing this review, so I think I have a pretty good feel for what makes a good escape room. I've now tried 3 of the rooms at Break the Code Plus and over all, I would rate them as a below average escape room outfit.
My favourite room of theirs is Indiana Jones, which I really enjoyed (but which wasn't without various flaws). Their Mission Stealth room wasn't as good (and they had a technical problem which ruined our experience). I completed their Avatar themed room recently and I found it really unimpressive (clunky and at times ambiguous puzzles, a lack of creativity and no wow factor to speak of). I had brought my work colleagues to this escape room outfit for a team building day and unfortunately, one of our rooms hadn't been reset correctly (they accidentally left a door unlocked, which really confused that team and ultimately ruined their experience). That kind of error really isn't good enough.
Whilst they have a couple of cool high tech puzzles or effects in some of their rooms, their theming, communication system, puzzle design and overall execution are not in the same league as the better escape room outfits in Sydney (such as Paniq Room, Enigma Room, Mission Sydey and ParaPark in my opinion).
My mother, two children and myself did the avatar . It was our first attempt at an escape roomChippie_7
Email communication was prompt and helpful. The room was ready at the booked time.
Being new to escape rooms we really didn't know what to expect or how to solve some of the clues
We were provided with help when we requested it. Help was either by way of explanation or our host would come in and help us out if needed. We probably could have used more help at the start by way of more explanation
We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We will do more escaping as soon as we can
We had a great time here playing Avatar. The game is challenging and fun and overall it was a wonderful experience as our first game. Will be back.anna k
So much fun! Definitely recommend to everyone and anyone!Ana Bolinas
