Barrow escape room offers NHS heroes free games to mark reopening

Prison Break – The Prison Break room at Break Free Barrow.

An escape room attraction in Cumbria is offering NHS workers free games to mark its reopening.

Break Free on Rawlinson Street in Barrow has four different scenarios based around a Prison Break, Ascension, Abandoned Factory and Room 13 theme.

Since a major rebrand last year, hundreds of gamers have praised the “great experience” and “challenging puzzles” and the unique clue system that tracks every move and ensures help is at hand for people who may get stuck on one part of any escape room.

Now to thank people working in the NHS, Break Free is offering 3 days later this month (12th, 13th, 14th) where they can play for free.

Samir Patel from Break Free Escape Room Barrow said: “We want to thank all those working in the NHS and this is the least we can do to recognise their dedication to helping people not only during this pandemic but also at other times of need.

“We’ve made some changes to the attraction to protect our staff and to ensure the games can still be experienced in an enjoyable and safe way.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming our NHS heroes and their families and all we ask is that they book 24 hours in advance and bring their ID on the day which must be one of the dates advertised.”

To qualify, NHS workers should send a message to Break Free Barrow’s Facebook page with their ID or NHS email address. A unique code will then be sent to be used to book online.
