Games

The Spaceship Escape Room

Ideal for teams of 5-16 people. Works great as a single activity (90 minutes) or combined with Spy Game and/or the Temple Mission (2.5 hours). We would start the event with the Spy Game and after that, your team can choose to play The Spaceship all together, or to split up between the two missions, The Spaceship and the Temple. High-tech, magical puzzles, mysterious and intricate story lines, super immersive themes and nonlinear game designs. Enter a real 1930’s bank vault, for our new game, the ‘SPACESHIP', signalling the armada for an impending invasion. You must work as a team to decrypt and solve all of the alien technology inside, solve the mysteries, repair the ships engines and disable the signal that will doom the planet. Featuring interactive, electronic, automated puzzles, a unique and nonlinear game structure. This activity will take approximately 90 minutes to complete. This includes mission briefing, 60-minute game time, photo time and any bathroom breaks.

Ancient Temple Escape Room

Ideal for teams of 2-6 people. This mission was designed for smaller teams, but this room is jammed with magical and interactive puzzles. Works great as a single game, or can be combined with The Spaceship and Spy Games, in case of at least 14 participants. High-tech, magical puzzles, mysterious and intricate story lines, super immersive themes and nonlinear game designs. Discover the dark secrets of an ancient temple of a long lost civilization that used to worship the Gods of Death. We believe that a ceremony has been initiated to revive the Death Gods who will bring upon the Apocalypse. You and your team have been recruited as special agents to investigate the ruins, seal the Death Gods and save the world. Featuring interactive, electronic, automated puzzles,a unique and nonlinear game structure. This activity will take approximately 90 minutes to complete. This includes mission briefing, 60-minute game time, photo time and any bathroom breaks.

Our Spy Game

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. Once your team has been qualified as special agents, we will test their skills by having them investigate a crime scene and solving a Sherlock Holmes mystery. 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 Spaceship 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 Spaceship/Temple Only
  • 2.) The Spaceship + Temple
  • 3.) The Spaceship + Spy Game Combo
  • 4.) The Spaceship + Temple + Spy Game Combo

(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.
