Escape Rooms 

You find yourself locked in a room with only one hour to get out (an emergency door is of course always open). Find and solve all of the riddles successfully in order to escape. There are five different escape rooms to choose from.

What do we need to do?

Gather objects, identify clues and solve riddles in order to escape. Good teamwork is essential, so communicate and collaborate well! Other than that, perceptiveness, logic and joy are key! (Pun intended)

iPad Schnitzeljagd in Basel

iPad-Scavenger Hunts

Watch as the whole city becomes an Escape Room! The witty riddles will make even long known places appear in a new light. The iPad is an important companion: it explains your mission to you and helps you to navigate through the city.

What do we need to do?

Come and get your equipment and then head out into the city. The iPad will show you where to go. If you manage to solve the riddles and be back in time, the world is saved! You can choose from three different scavenger hunts and a myriad of route options.

Set the difficulty!

Are you already seasoned Live Escape Game players or is it your first time? Are you a family or a group of students? Is your team used to working together or are you just getting to know each other?

Exclusively at Breakout Basel

As one of the only escape rooms to do so, Breakout Basel lets you choose the difficulty of the games.

Besides our average difficulty setting, we also offer the option of an easy or hard escape. For our youngest players, we have especially created the difficulty “Kids”.


Suited for 4 –6 People

Some prior Escape Room experience is of advantage, but not absolutely necessary. Escaping is tricky but doable – use all of your ressources: communicate, be creative and exact. Then, you might succeed.


Perfect for 2–3 People or Families

The conditions for an escape are good. But the game still requires a lot of you – without teamwork, you will fail.


For seasoned fans of Room Escape Games

We are expecting a lot from you! Prepare to solve riddles that are still logically sound, but much harder than usual. Escaping is possible, but only if your team is experienced and already a well-oiled machine.


Perfect for children from 8 to 12 years. Especially recommended if there is no adult in the group.

We adapt the riddles so that even our youngest customers can enjoy them. The children are supported age-appropriately and will have a successful experience.

Further Infos about the Game


An Escape Room game takes up to 1 hour. The duration of the iPad-Scevenger Hunt can bet set to 1, 2 or 3 hours. The game instructions additionally take up around 10 minutes.

No need to arrive early: just arrive at the booked time.


Our Escape Rooms are language neutral. Our game masters speak German, English and a little French. Our iPad-Scavenger hunts can only be played in German or English.

Number of Participants 

One Escape Room fits 2-6 people. There are many combination options for larger groups. We don’t recommend playing in a group of seven. But – it’s possible for some rooms! Just book for 6 people and announce the 7. person in the booking commentary field.

Per iPad, 2-6 People can play. If you are more people, we will give you more iPads. You can decide on-site if you want to walk together or play against each other.

As long as the needed number of Escape Rooms stays the same, you can come with one participant more or less than announced – and just pay for who is actually playing.

Age Restrictions 

You can never be too old for an Escape Room or an iPad Scavenger Hunt. Everybody, from the grandchild to the grandparents is welcome. However, we have set the minimum Age at 8 years. For children aged 8 – 12, the recommened difficulty setting is “children”. The scavenger hunts require an adult person to accompany groups of children.


Crutches: There are no obstacles that can’t be overcome, even with crutches.

Wheelchair: Our only room tha is also suitable for wheelchairs will be “Blackout – Renewable Engeries” If you tell us in the booking process, we can prepare a wheelchair-friendly scavenger hunt route for you.
