Sydney's latest escape room outfit - Break the Code+
I have learned (from Andi, a reader of this blog) about a new escape room that has opened up in Sydney recently.
The outfit is called Break the Code Plus. They are located on George Street in Haymarket.
They opened on August 22. They currently have 6 rooms, as summarised below. Their website mentions that they plan to change up their rooms "every few months", which is something that other escape room outfits don't currently offer in Sydney.
They also describe themselves as having bigger rooms and better codes than their competition. They also suggest that their rooms are full of high tech puzzles.
Julia at Break the Code Plus sent me a short email telling me how the owners are avid escape room junkies and thought they would try their hand at opening up their own rooms in Sydney. I hope to check them out shortly and will of course post a review!
If anyone has tried out any of their rooms (or does so in the future), please either send me an email to email@example.com or post a comment below to let me know what you thought about their rooms (particularly compared to other escape room outfits in Sydney).
