The goal was to break out in 5 steps:
1. get out of handcuffs
2. open 'cell' door
3. overpower guard
4. break into filing cabinet to retrieve passport
5. break out of prison
For each choice except numbers 1 and 3 there was an easy, medium and hard choice. Locks had difficulty modifiers and it was a timed event.
Every single guy there, many who own their own handcuffs and practice all the time, were schooled by a 12 year old girl named Ella. Sadly I don't have her best run on video, which was 1m42s. This is her slow run, at about 5m
