Virtual Bonding, Escape Room Style

It's not just a fun virtual activity. It's a fun activity!

There is a reason Escapely virtual escape rooms are the number 1 virtual escape rooms for team building in the US. They’re interactive and require communication and teamwork to escape! Our online escape rooms can host groups of any size, small or large. We do this by dividing large groups into teams who play the same game at the same time as a competition. And don’t worry about anyone getting left behind - each small team has a dedicated moderator who ensures that everyone is working together. Escape room team building activities get all coworkers brainstorming, problem solving and communicating. After everyone has escaped, we all come back together to announce the winners! Our online escape rooms are the perfect remote team building activity.

Best of all, each team has a moderator guiding them through the virtual escape room and providing as much help as necessary. Everyone will finish, it's just a matter of who finishes first!

How are online escape rooms different from in-person escape rooms?

Employees playing a virtual escape room Virtual escape rooms have some distinct advantages over in-person escape rooms, especially when used for team building. The biggest perk of an online escape room is that it’s easier for everyone to participate.

Picture an in-person escape room with 5-10 people hovering around one puzzle. It’s not possible for everyone to see the puzzle, let alone contribute to solving it. In a virtual escape room, all participants can see the puzzles clearly on their own screen and brainstorm ideas together. While solving, players draw together on the screen to clearly articulate their ideas and follow their coworkers’ thought processes. With so many brains contributing different ideas, we can make our puzzles more challenging which enhances the team’s feeling of success at the end. It’s escape room teamwork at its best! Another advantage of virtual escape room team building is that we can host very large groups in a seamless and cohesive experience. In-person escape rooms are limited by the physical size of the room and the number of rooms at the facility.

Coworkers working an escape room puzzle Our virtual escape rooms are the perfect escape rooms for large groups because everyone gets to play the same game at the same time in one unified event. We start everyone together to explain the rules, then divide large groups out into small teams that compete to finish first. Each team has a dedicated moderator guiding them through the game, giving hints, and making sure everyone is able to participate. At the end, we bring the whole group back together to announce the winners. It’s the perfect combination of intimate bonding with a company-wide event that everyone will love.

Virtual escape rooms have the added advantage of being more convenient for employees. With no commute time necessary, it’s easy to fit our 60-minute team building exercise escape room into the workday. Also, some people feel scared or claustrophobic locked in a physical space. In our online escape rooms, each participant can play from wherever they are most comfortable. Finally, the digital environment opens up a whole new world of puzzles not possible in real life.

Interactive Bonding

Our escape room corporate team building event is active and engaging. Participants don’t just watch a show – they collaborate and brainstorm together to solve the puzzles. Coworkers communicate with their teammates over video chat and draw directly on the screen to explore ideas. The virtual escape room is an event that truly connects your team and gets them working together toward a common goal.

How Does Virtual Escape Room Team Building Work?

Our virtual escape room team building game is specifically designed to require coworkers to brainstorm, make decisions, take risks, and balance different viewpoints. Participants will need to lead and follow at different times, as well as communicate both out loud and on the screen. All five of our scenarios (hyperlink) have a variety of puzzles that incorporate varied skills so that everyone on the team has opportunities to contribute and opportunities to learn. From math puzzles to geography to cracking the final code, each participant will have their moment to shine!

In our virtual escape rooms, every team gets the sense of accomplishment that comes from working together to succeed and escape! We do not time teams out. Instead, our moderators pace each team appropriately so that everyone will escape in the allotted time. The moderators will never rush a team that is on pace to finish on their own, but when a team needs a boost, they step in to nudge them in the right direction without giving any answers away. This strategy is crucial to our team building events escape rooms because teams experience aha moments on their own, enhancing team building.

Escape room team building puts players in the driver’s seat and gets them actively working together to escape. They must strategize to decide when it’s worth taking a hint penalty and when it’s best to puzzle it out. There’s a reason corporate teams come back again and again to play all five of our online escape rooms – we create lasting memories colleagues will talk about for a long time to come.

How we create escape room at home experiences for teams

Players solving a virtual escape room maze Escapely was born from a passion for puzzles and games. This excitement especially shines through in our extremely popular virtual escape rooms. Our founder, Rachel, is an escape room fanatic and has played hundreds of physical escape rooms. She created her first two virtual escape rooms in early 2020 to address the low morale so many people were experiencing because of the global pandemic. After many rounds of testing, those escape rooms were refined into the virtual escape room team building events Escapely offers today. When we create a virtual escape room, it starts much the same way that we approach our custom games. We first think about the tone of the game and the experience we want participants to have. We design all puzzles with teamwork in mind and test them thoroughly to make sure they are interactive, exciting, and challenging without being impossible.

Coworkers collaborating on a virtual escape room screen Because our format is so interactive and because our staff is so friendly and accommodating, we were inundated with requests to create other online escape rooms and other types of events! We now offer five virtual escape rooms, a virtual murder mystery and virtual trivia. Stay tuned because we are always innovating and have several new and exciting events in the works.
