When it comes to getting your people moving in the same direction, it can sometimes feel like you’re herding cats. That’s where it helps to have some team building activities that actually help.
Far too often, people turn to various activities for team building that only serve to further alienate the staff- from each other as well as management. That’s where escape games can help. In fact, some of our players tell us we have the best team building activities in Denver!
The concept is simple. You and your group will be escorted to a room with a specific theme. We won’t have to explain the theme- it’ll be clear! (Like a good joke, if you have to explain it, it doesn’t work!). The game master will explain the rules and instructions you need, but the rest is up to you. You’ll have exactly 60 minutes to solve all the puzzles and find all the clues you need to escape the room. Think you’re up for the challenge?
So, how hard are our escape games? That’s entirely up to you and your group. If you’re a lone wolf, expect to fail, but if you effectively work with the group, you’ve got a decent shot.
Look, if you put your team in a kitchen and give them the task of baking a cake, they will, in fact, have a team bonding experience, but will these lessons transfer into the workplace? Eh, maybe.
We definitely know that splitting up the accounting department and the sales department into two teams and letting them get into bubble balls and bash each other around a soccer field would be fun to watch, but would it be effective to bring the two teams together? Um…no.
Laser tag is incredible fun (for some), but this is more along the lines of team bonding (or team splitting depending upon which team you’re on!). The problem is that there are tons of ideas out there about how to bond together. Escape rooms offers both- team building and team bonding.
When your team goes into an escape room, they have to work together on little tasks in order to move along the line toward the big goal- escaping the room. During the hour, everyone can contribute, and the highs and lows of the experience brings people together.
When it comes to getting people together, there are studies out there (somewhere) that indicate the most important factors in team building activities are time and the stress of a shared experience. Our escape games give you both of these things in a safe, fun environment. No one gets hurt. No broken bones. It’s all of the challenges without any of the risk management headaches.
