There are three main benefits from a team building experience with Xscape Pods. Improved problem-solving skills, communication and encouraging creativity; But don’t trust us—trust the science that proves why team building and escape rooms are a natural fit!

Team building with escape rooms increases creativity and enhances problem solving skills: How exactly does this flashing light relate to this locked desk drawer? Perhaps it’s to do with this sign I found in the corner? Or maybe this cryptic note holds the key to our escape? By thinking laterally and outside of the box, team members will learn the value of new ideas and new ways of thinking. 

Team building with escape rooms increases communication: In an age where many of your team members might be communicating solely through email or video conferences, the social nature of escape rooms will help them help build essential communication skills. Escape rooms can help foster respectful dialogue, a creative exchange of ideas, and encourage active listening. At its most basic level, participating in an escape room adventure helps everyone get to know one another better.

Luckily, our incredible escape room challenges help develop these crucial team building skills in a fun, engaging way. Gone are the days of team building drudgery! As a bonus for organizers, the escape room experience can also reveal the strengths and weakness of a group’s dynamics—essential insight for any leader looking to maximize their team member’s skills back at the office.

All your group needs are a willingness to work together and try something new! We supply the themed escape room (anything from finding a lost tomb, to saving a spaceship or uncovering a government secret), a game master, and 60 minutes of challenging fun! And when it’s over, your group will have plenty of time to chat and reflect on their experiences. The rush that everyone gets after it’s all over? That excited chatter as everyone discusses and analyzes the outcome? That’s called the “froth.” And it makes for better and happier employees. Look, we can’t say this enough: escape rooms are fun. We this know from years of experience and countless happy customers!
