Think of the escape game activity just like project management. Each member of your team is called upon to play a role according to his or her best skills.

As a result, you’ll either be able to create new teams according to a strategy you’ve determined in advance, or you’ll allow existing teams to be strengthened during the activity.

Tasty, out-of-the-ordinary anecdotes will no doubt dot your team building post mortem, and essentially, as Teambuilding.com reports, this kind of interaction also improves communication by over 50% in work teams.

WHY USE AN ESCAPE GAME AS A TEAM-BUILDING ACTIVITY?

On the face of it, escape rooms are becoming increasingly popular with companies because :

  • They can be carried out indoors, at any time;
  • They require no organization on the part of managers;
  • They’re fun, and people enjoy taking part.

It’s a great way to practice communication and teamwork, whether among employees or managers. Solving puzzles requires everyone’s participation!

HOW DO ESCAPE ROOM GAMES WORK?

At BoulZeye, there are four (4) escape rooms created by Escapology, the world’s fastest-growing indoor escape franchise. Expect a beautiful staging for each theme:

  1. Antidote (a government conspiracy and apocalyptic threat from a virus)
  2. Budapest Express (a detective investigation on a train with unexpected twists and turns)
  3. COD3 (a news bulletin taken by storm by the threat of a hacker)
  4. Murder at the Manor (a Clue-like crime is committed in the library)

UP TO 24 PEOPLE AT THE SAME TIME

You can involve up to six (6) people in the same room. So, to organize your team-building day, plan for a maximum of twenty-four (24) people for a first round.

A ROUND LASTS 60 MINUTES

The activity lasts a maximum of sixty (60) minutes, during which team members must solve a series of riddles in a predefined order to escape from the room.

IMPORTANT
You must be present 15 minutes before the start of the activity to obtain all the necessary information.
