Breakout is an escape room company owned and operated by entrepreneurs Jeff Cuizicki and Dan Schutz. Their journey began humbly, One day, Dan's Office Manager Jeff from his Telecommunications business played one of the original vanilla escape games in New York while on vacation. He shared the experience with the office staff, and within minutes Dan jumped in and said 'Oh my Gosh that sounds like a blast, we have to do this but make it a Circus theme' The very next day they built a plan and started working on it
That was us in 2014, Dan and Jeff, then opened the first escape game in Michigan debuting the original game The Ringmaster's Den.

What began as a labor of love with a single location drew players from Canada and neighboring states that also had not seen a escape game before. We built a model that many in the industry follow and coined the classic over-propped group photo.
Living The Game
We are not here to simply bring you replicated basic puzzles and themes, we are Gamemasters that push ourselves creatively to design unique puzzles. We fully immerse ourselves in game rooms (see photo.) Each new innovative game has a different theme, clue delivery system and puzzle structure for you the player to enjoy.
This exciting and fun business model allowed for us to quickly expand. Breakout currently has five locations and we are enthusiastically working on new game rooms.
With wits, teamwork and creativity you can escape before time runs out.
As for us, we hope to never escape Breakout's game.
