The secret to success for many businesses is having a team that works well together. In fact, the most successful organizations often engage in regular team building exercises. One of the best team building activities available today is the new global phenomenon, escape rooms.

Escape rooms are the hottest global trend and are quickly climbing to the top of the entertainment ranks. An escape room is an immersive adventure game that takes place in a themed room. Your group must find hidden objects and clues, solve puzzles, think 'outside the box', and unravel mysteries in order of complete their adventure and finish their mission in less than 60 minutes. 

These games are starting to attract the attention of many businesses who are looking to provide an opportunity to their employees to work together  and become more productive. Most escape rooms are designed that the more people participating the more successful your group will be. Every mind works a little differently so the more engaged everyone in the group is, the better your chances for success. Also, since each adventure is done under a time constraint, it creates a sense of urgency and excitement. It's very difficult to create a similar experience in an office setting.

Escape rooms can be very beneficial to team members with low self esteem or who are struggling to fit into a group. Everyone in the group contributes in some way to the success of the group. Completing an escape room is a great way to boost a player's confidence, team moral, as well as help a team bond together. It creates an experience that they will talk about and relive, long after the experience is over. 

The urgency of the experience and the sheer volume and complexity of the puzzles encourage players to rely on each other, making this a great tool to strengthen a core team. This helps team learn to trust each other and work together in stressful situations. 

Escape rooms are the perfect venue for employees to work together, have fun, sharpen their skills,  and return to work as better confident team members.
