On regular days, no one wants to be stuck in a room with no way out. Solo pandemic quarantine survivors, we see you.

But when it comes to escape rooms, there’s just something about that adrenaline rush from fumbling over combination locks to open doors, that keeps adventure-seeking souls coming back.

If you thought that chicken rice balls and Jonker Street night market are all that Melaka has to offer, you’ll want to think again.

Enter Breakout, which has expanded to the southern state with its mind-boggling puzzle rooms and a spy game for you to crack codes like James Bond.

Escape from a locked-up, abandoned cabin

Imagine being locked up in a dark, abandoned cabin after having lunch at a local restaurant. It might be a thing straight out of a nightmare, but here’s where the game, the Missing Case Of Melaka, really begins.

You and your friends will have to unleash your inner Sherlock Holmes to find ways to escape a locked-up cabin.

This horror-themed escape room – tailored specifically for Melaka – can host up to eight players at a time, and is strictly not for the faint of heart.

Besides this exclusive themed-room at Breakout Melaka, you’re probably wondering about the offerings at its existing two outlets in Kuala Lumpur.

Thrilling themed rooms for puzzle-solving experts & fans

Apart from the Missing Case Of Melaka, escape room fans can also look forward to three other uniquely themed rooms, with varying levels of difficulty that will thrill families with little ones to fans of sci-fi films like The Matrix.

Section 13 is catered for advanced players who’d like to put their puzzle-solving skills to the ultimate test. Here, you’ll take on the responsibility of solving a crisis in an experiment conducted on prisoners by the Russian military to create super soldiers.

Capsule is another escape room for those who love time travelling tales. Players will have to retrieve a stolen USB created by a well-known scientist to prevent terrorists from overthrowing the government.

There’s also a family-friendly room here called Wonderland, inspired by the movie Alice in Wonderland. Just as action-packed, it’ll be up to you to solve puzzles and restore a magical flower to its rightful place, on a magical stand in the mysterious wonderland – all to bring back the glorious flow of time.

If you aren’t so much into solving puzzles but want all the thrills of running around intact, check out Breakout’s new game concept called Spy Game at the Melaka outlet.  As the first of its kind in the country, this game requires players to test their sneak and stealth levels and live out the role of James Bond.

You’ll have to break into a location and tiptoe past ‘patrolling guards’ – or non-playable characters – to achieve a series of missions before time runs out.

Family-friendly spy game mission

You don’t always have to leave the kiddos at home with a nanny on the weekends – Breakout just launched a family-friendly game concept, Spy Game Junior, at their Melaka outlet to celebrate their 10th anniversary.

You’ll be speeding, sneaking, and searching your way through eight missions in just 60 minutes alongside your little ones – letting them feel just as cool as the Spy Kids as they unlock their full spy-tential.

Some interesting things to look out for are high-tech gameplays straight out of a spy film. The whole fam gets to work on solving quests together by observing security cameras, and hashing out escape plans past lasers – this may sound intense, but the game is actually suited to 4-12-year-olds.

Pricing for this new game concept starts from RM119 for 2 pax. For major savings, opt for the Super Saver package that lets 6 individuals join the fun for RM249.
