Outdoor escape games add to the ‘Summer of Fun’ in Powys

A team tries to solve the clues to one of Beyond Breakout’s Outdoor escape games.

Parents looking for fun ways to entertain their children during the summer holiday are being encouraged to check out an enticing offer by a popular Mid Wales escape rooms attraction.

As part of Powys County Council’s ‘Summer of Fun’ programme, Beyond Breakout in Newtown will be making its Outdoor escape games available to play for free on certain dates.

Each outdoor game is for a team of up to six people and lasts two hours. To qualify for ‘Summer of Fun’ funding, at least one team member must be aged between 10 and 25 years.

Beyond Breakout’s Outdoor escape games have proved very popular since their launch last year. There are two games to choose from, ‘Magic Portal’ and ‘Operation Mindfall’, both of which use the latest Augmented Reality technology, making it a unique, immersive experience for all ages to enjoy.

Teams are provided with an action pack and a tablet to navigate a route, solve puzzles and save the world before the time runs out!

Most of the dates the company is releasing are for games to be played around Newtown, starting and ending at Beyond Breakout’s base in the Pryce Jones building.

However, there are also plans to take the games to Machynlleth, Welshpool and Llandrindod Wells, so that as many people as possible have the opportunity to play.
