You are inside the training room of local Hull and Yorkshire Olympic Boxer Luke 'Coolhand' Campbell. It’s an hour before β€˜Lukes’ title match and you are his training team. You have 60 mins before you have to be ringside with his gloves. Unfortunately his opponent has hidden his gloves somewhere in the room. Can you perform the training/exercises needed to lead to his gloves and escape before β€˜Luke’s’ match is void and your opponent takes the title.

Beverley Breakout is the perfect example of hosting making such a huge difference; Fran is such a great host and we're almost sorry to have done all the rooms here now, as that means we've not got an excuse to go back! The Main Event appealed to me because of the sporting theme and because it's all based around Luke Campbell. There are some good physical puzzles here and strong theming throughout. The puzzles are nice and there's much more going on than meets the eye at first. We enjoyed this one a lot.

The theme of the room didn't grab me initially. But, we tried to engage with the local history surrounding the room. Not played a sports based room before so this helped us tick off that achievement. 

Fairly straight forward game, we found one puzzle slightly ambiguous but got there in the end with a bit of help.

Great hosting and a warm welcome, we felt really at ease during our stay thanks to Francine the owner.

It isn't very often that you see a sports-themed room, therefore we were intrigued and had to visit. The room itself is based on local boxing legend Luke Campbell: through immersive room aesthetics, engaging, no-nonsense puzzles (largely numerical and physical) and informative Easter eggs which appear as you progress, you are immediately given an insight into the boxing world - you cannot help but take interest. Signposting in this room (and all other Beverley Breakout rooms) is exceptional and ensured that there was no 'dead time' as we played. There are some lovely interactive moments throughout this game which made the whole experience enjoyable from start to finish. As the room is largely linear, I would recommend that smaller teams of enthusiasts play this game. All parts of the game are accessible and child-friendly and what's more, you can even pre-set your desired level of difficulty before you play. Fran hosted our game and she was exceptional: it is evident that she has put her heart and soul into her games and it was lovely to see her passionately talk about them (and rightly so). We thoroughly appreciated that she took the time to explain how she changed the level of difficulty in each room. Whether you are a fan of boxing or not, the Main Event is a room you have to experience should you wish to experience a fun, no-nonsense and solid escape room.
