What is Breakout Saint John?
Breakout Saint John is an award-winning escape room complex in Saint John, New Brunswick that offers a unique and fun form of entertainment that has been exploding around the world in recent years. Our players must find clues and solve a series of puzzles in an attempt to escape or complete a room’s mission before time
runs out.

Each game is original to Breakout and is thoughtfully designed for players to be completely immersed in the room, experiencing what it would be like inside a movie, book, or video game for a short period of time. Players have up to one hour to solve the puzzles before their time runs out! Rooms are carefully crafted at specific difficulty levels, to ensure everyone does not escape, but everyone has a great time either way!

Breakout Saint John launched in December of 2015 as the first escape room facility in New Brunswick with two on-site escape rooms.

We are a locally operated independent business, and have since relocated and expanded to offer:
