You are survivors of a zombie apocalypse and for many years, an elite group known as ‘The Network’ have been living in the underground, tasked with keeping the generators running and powering ‘Safe Zones’ around London. The generators have stopped working and communications with The Network have been lost. You have no choice but to form a team of volunteers and journey down to the station to investigate. Good luck, the fate of humanity is in your hands.

Breakout Chester’s newest room, this was a lot of fun, if a little stressful! We were pleasantly surprised to see that the theming is really on point, and the soundtrack makes for a really creepy vibe. The puzzles are pretty typical for Breakout but still a lot of fun,  there’s a few things you can get on with at once so not too linear to start with. Lots of fun, up there with Forsaken as our favourite Breakout rooms.

Best theming in any of the breakout rooms! Some really creative puzzles, and all on theme. Fairly open game with the odd linear path.

Reviews by escape room review sites

A real LEAP up in standard for Breakout (and the Chester rooms are all very good anyways) but if this is the direction they’re taking, I’m very, very excited to see what they come up with in the future, this did not feel like a typical Breakout Franchise room, this room has the stamp of independent design on it.
