Room To Escape offers more than fun. Our escape room experiences can also help with team-building, too! Many corporations and not-for-profits send their employees our way each week, and we’re a great activity for sports teams as well.
How can Room To Escape help build trust on your team? Groups of up to twelve people work together to crack codes, solve puzzles, and open locks. Experiences are timed at one hour and team members MUST work together and communicate openly to achieve success.
Our escape rooms are recommended for players ages 8 and up, and they’re great for groups of mixed ages. Coaches, parents, and team mates have the opportunity to contribute equally and use their unique skill set for the benefit of the group.
Here are some of the team-building skills that an escape experience helps to foster:
Communication is essential to a successful escape experience. Puzzles and ciphers are designed with groups in mind, and a successful escape often requires two or more people to move from one step to the next.
Team members must work together to escape. Friction and disagreement are normal in problem-solving situations, but at Room To Escape teams have just sixty minutes to find their way out. It’s time to start making decisions that benefit the whole group!
The relationship that a coach forms with his or her team is equally important to the relationships formed among team members. An escape experience helps to build trust as everyone works toward a common goal.
Goals (both short- and longer-term)
The goal at Room To Escape is to open a series of locks and escape the room in less than one hour. This is the “longer-term” goal, like winning a sporting match. However, a win is only achieved after a series of short-term goals have been met. Teams must work together to prioritize their time and solve the smaller puzzles before the larger goal can be met.
The contributions of the individual matter in an escape room. At Room To Escape, everyone’s unique talents and skills have a chance to shine as the team solves a series of discrete but interwoven puzzles.
