How do I book a game?
The easiest way to book your Breakout Lawrence game is just a click away on our booking page. You can also book by calling us at 785-422-5625, sending an email to, or visiting us on beautiful Massachusetts St.!

How early should I arrive?
Parking downtown can be tricky. Please give yourself some extra time and arrive 15 minutes prior to your start time. Games will begin exactly at your start time. We are unable to wait if you are late, and you may have less than 60 minutes to play if you are not on time.

Am I really going to be locked in a room?
The short answer is no; that doesn't sound safe or legal! You will be in a room with a locked door, but it is equipped with an exit button and you are free to leave the room at any time. Of course, leaving the room early disqualifies any record times.

How many people play? Are there age restrictions?
The amount of player spots differs for each room, and you can find this information on the main page under each room description as well as on our booking page. There is no age requirement for the rooms, but we do require that an adult be present with any group of players aged 13 and under.

What kind of physical mobility do the games require?

Each game has its own different challenges, but certain rooms may require one or more players to bend down, crawl, or reach in order to complete a puzzle. However, each room is friendly to those with limited mobility as long as there are other players in the group capable of performing the more physical tasks. If you have any concerns about the physical nature of our games, please call or send us an email and it will be our pleasure to make sure your experience is completely safe and enjoyable.

How do I pay?
Rooms booked online are paid at the time of reservation. We also accept payment in person or over the phone, but payment must be received before we can reserve a room. If you are splitting payment with others in your group, please let us know and we will make accommodations. 

Can I book with my friends or family? Can I add people to my reservation?
Of course! We suggest designating one person to place the booking for your entire group. You could have each person book their own spot, but all rooms are first come, first serve.

Can you accommodate larger parties and events?
Absolutely! Our facility is designed for up to 26 players at a time, and we can arrange multiple rounds of games for groups larger than 26. Please visit our Large Groups page for more information, and don't forget to check out Team Lab, our in-depth team building experience that connects the escape room challenge to the challenges faced by you and your team every day in the competitive workplace environment.

Will there be other people in the room with us?
This will depend on how many folks are in your group. If the total available slots are 6 and there are only 4 of you then 2 slots will still be available to be booked by other people. They will not necessarily be filled, but there is a possibility that others may buy those tickets. If you want to experience a room with only your friends/family, you will need to purchase all slots for a given room.

How long is each game?
Each game is 60 minutes, though we ask you to arrive 15 minutes prior to your experience for preparation and 5 minutes after to debrief and take a fun group picture! 

If I've played a certain room already, can I play the same room again or will it be the same? 
Besides minor changes, the gameplay in each room is consistent so we recommend choosing a new theme the next time you want to play a game!

What happens if I need to cancel my reservation? 
We understand that life is unpredictable at times, so we are more than happy to help you reschedule your experience should you be unable to make it to your originally scheduled game. Not sure when you want to come back? We can provide you with a personal credit that you can use to book again at your convenience.

Is Breakout Lawrence wheelchair accessible?
Yes, Breakout Lawrence is wheelchair accessible for the Y2K and Stock Exchange rooms. However, Rules of Basket Ball and Civil War are only partially accessible. Both rooms will require additional help from teammates to complete all of the challenges!

Where do we park?

There is plenty of available parking in downtown Lawrence and you have a few different options when it comes to parking. Along Mass St. (shown below in blue) and some surrounding downtown streets you will find meter parking. Meters cost $.50 an hour between 9am and 6pm (excluding Sundays and Holidays). The yellow shaded spots show the location of 2-hour lots where parking is free for 2 hours within the same time frame as the metered parking. The area shaded in orange is a 4 story parking garage adjacent to the Lawrence Public Library. The first three stories feature 2-hour free spots (10-hours of parking available for $1 at pay station), while the 4th story is free parking all day.

If your scheduled game is on a Friday night, a Saturday, or during a special downtown event, we recommend giving yourself an extra 5-10 minutes to find a space and walk to Breakout.
