“After four and a half months of being locked out, we can’t wait to start locking people in again,” said Jo Woodall, who created and co-owns the attraction with Lorna Morris.
“We have taken every measure possible to ensure the safety of both customers and staff during this pandemic and look forward to welcoming visitors back to Beyond Breakout.”
Groups visiting the attraction must be from the same household or extended bubble and all players must provide and use their own masks whilst playing the games.
The attraction has carried out a comprehensive risk assessment and completed the Visit Britain ‘Good to Go’ certification. There are hand sanitising stations in the entrance lobby and in the reception area as visitors enter, and sanitiser within the escape room itself for use throughout the game.
Beyond Breakout is using the sanitising disinfectant Aktivora, which is clinically proven to be effective against COVID-19 and conforms to British Standards. Providing a background level of disinfectant for 24 hours, it is used to thoroughly clean the room after each game.
“We have altered some puzzles in our Puzzle Land game to keep our players safe,” explained Jo, “and have increased the time between games to ensure groups do not cross over at any stage.
“This increase in time between games also enables us to thoroughly clean down our rooms between games together with the reception and briefing area. Lorna and I are always more than two metres away from visitors and all the windows, including in the in the Puzzle Land room, are open to increase ventilation.”
Jo and Lorna have spent lockdown working on new games, one of which is The Mask which should soon be ready to open.
Bookings can be made online at www.beyondbreakout.co.uk and Jo and Lorna are available to answer any questions by email at email@example.com .
Beyond Breakout is a member of MWT Cymru, an independent organisation that represents more than 600 tourism and hospitality businesses across Powys, Ceredigion and the Meirionnydd region of Gwynedd.
