Room Escape Team Building: Our Fastest Growing Event!
Real-life room escape games are popping up all over the world. Combining physical adventure with mental challenge people are locked in a room with other participants and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within a set time limit. The games are based on “escape the room” video games in which the player must explore his or her surroundings in order to escape the given situation. For example: Your group will come across a box that requires a passcode to open, or a door that needs a key. With enough searching, you’ll be able to successfully figure out codes, open all locked containers, find all hidden objects, and work your way into either the next room or to freedom.
Ok, now what exactly is a room escape (aka escape room)?
Simple. Your group gets locked in a room, with the mission of escaping by solving a variety of puzzles, riddles, clues, and tests.
What if we can’t solve the puzzles?!?!
This isn’t a horror movie. Even if you get stuck, you’ll be let out after a certain amount of time, usually between 60-90 minutes. If your group doesn’t escape, our staff will take the time at the end of the event to explain the solution.
Where do you do this?
We have created escapes that can take place anywhere. You give us the location, and we bring you the “room.” We have escapes designed for small groups (under 15 people) as well as large group escapes. Basically, we’ve reimagined one of our treasure hunts to work within the confines of a room (or two), or even a large open space. One solved mystery will lead to another, and another, and another, until either you solve the final puzzle, or the clock runs out.
People do this for FUN?!?
Players not only have fun in the heat of the game—it seems like there’s a rush of dopamine every time you hear a padlock click open or unearth a key—but also afterwards when they can commiserate with their partners on their challenges and defeats. Our staff can also offer observations afterwards on how the group cooperated.
