Team Building with Escape Mate

Character-revealing, interactive and a complete crack-up! We split the group, form smaller teams and rotate them around the escape rooms with a variety of activities/games. These are not only fun and challenging but also aim to encourage teamwork, collaboration, communication, problem-solving, strategizing, time management and also trust between team members.

Escape Mate Games are

Dramatic, dynamic, high energy, intellectual team building activities, featuring high- tech puzzles, and complicated crime stories. You’ll have to deal with pressure and time management, while using your brain and collaboration as your superpower!

It starts up with a Spy Qualification Quiz that determines what sort of secret agent everyone in the group is. We will split you into groups and continue with games that test your wit, problem solving skills and reaction time by playing interactive, scenario based games with light puzzle solving – all related to the secret agent theme of the main two rooms. Along with having to interact and co-operate with your team members, it also gives an opportunity to have a good laugh and some friendly competition within your group.

EVENT PROGRAMME FOR LARGER GROUPS

Our Game Masters will rotate the teams around a variety of activities and games. These are not only fun and challenging but aim to encourage teamwork, collaboration, communication, problem-solving, strategizing, time management and also trust between team members. While one team is playing one of our escape rooms (The Alchemist and Temple), the rest of the group will play another chosen activity (Murder Mystery) in our meeting rooms and then swap over.

    Combinations of games

  • 1.) The Alchemist/Temple Only
  • 2.) The Alchemist + Temple
  • 3.) The Alchemist + Murder Mystery
  • 4.) The Alchemist + Temple + Murder Mystery

(Adding The Temple to your event schedule is optional)

All of these games are designed to be very different from each other, targeting different skill sets and requiring different approaches. Various types of interactions with team members and their environment as well as testing comfort zones are the aim of these simulations.

Participants can take a break any time during games, refreshments and snacks are provided at all times. Each game is monitored by one of our Game Masters to ensure teams get the most out of their escape room experience.

Each game focuses on a combination of problem solving and decision making activities, communication skills, strategizing, time management and trust building simulations. We believe this will help to improve your team’s performance and productivity in the workplace.
