How it works


How It Works:

A quick overview of this unique freetime activity in Hamburg

The definition of an Escape Room / Live Escape Game / Exit Game:
One or more groups of 2-7 people per game* are locked inside of a themed room and must work together as a team to find clues and solve puzzles/riddles in order to escape within 60 minutes. Teamwork, a sharp mind and mental skill are required to achieve success within the given time frame. Please note, that there is an emergency exit and the group can therefore leave the premise at any time.
*Even for larger groups we have a variety of options for your event!

Book your game

Choose a game and book your appointment online. You will directly receive a booking confirmation by email. On the day of your booking, please arrive 15 minutes beforehand for a short introduction. You will be greeted by a Big Break Hamburg Game Master, who will give you a short introduction and will provide some support in the form of tips during your adventure.

After the introduction you will enter a fantasy world full of imagination and wonder. The clock starts to count down and it’s up to you and your team to reach your goal and escape! After each of our games, there is a short wrap-up discussion. We build true stories and information into our games that we of course want to share with you!

Here’s how it works:


Gather your friends, family or work colleagues to make a team of 2 to 8 people and book your appointment here.  You will then receive a booking confirmation by email. (For groups of 9 or more people, you would need at least two free time slots at the same time – for questions, feel free to contact us).
