The team behind Newtown’s popular escape rooms attraction, Beyond Breakout, has developed a series of adventure games that can be taken to businesses, outdoors, and schools.
The Magic Portal combines the best of escape rooms, treasure hunts and geocaching over a distance of three kilometers. Beyond Breakout has an exclusive license to set up routes and run these games anywhere within a 60 minute radius of Newtown.
“The Magic Portal is a great way to utilize outdoor space and encourage visitation to a city, area or land,” said Lorna Morris, who runs Beyond Breakout with her business partner. Jo Woodall.
“Each game is about three kilometers long and we can set the course together with a customer or they can do it themselves. Everything is in place for the customer and the players.
“It’s the perfect quest for bringing teams of adults, families, groups of friends or vacationers to work together to solve puzzles while providing an immersive experience. The games last approximately two hours and players are given an iPad per team of six and a puzzle pack to solve all the puzzles.
“They’re navigating using maps and GPS to find the location of their next challenge. The cost is £ 60 per slot machine which can accommodate up to six players and customers can play 10 games per day.
All Lorna and Jo ask clients is that they share the marketing by promoting the event on social media and their website. Contact Lorna et Jo at tel: 01686 449172 or 07963 260373, or by e-mail [email protected].
Beyond Breakout organized the Magic Portal games for schools before opening reservations for the Newtown area.
The company’s indoor escape rooms are located on the fourth floor of Newtown’s Royal Welsh Warehouse, Pryce Jones Building. It also hosts digital online games and live avatar games.
