Escape rooms have become a popular and entertaining experience in a number of cities, and here in Atlanta there have been a few of them that opened their doors for business.
My wife and I have visited a couple, and enjoyed ourselves on both occasions.
But as a team leader, you are likely asking yourself if the investment of TIME and MONEY is worth it.
Let me answer your question with a confident reply.
It depends on the OUTCOME you are interested in achieving…
If you are interested in outcomes-based experiences, where your people enjoy a fun interactive event that delivers actionable and memorable take-aways that are relevant and positively impact your group interactions, then a full or half-day of facilitated team building is definitely what you should seek…
If you are interested in an entertainment-based experience, where your people enjoy a few laughs and work through a unique challenge that will give them something to talk about and help to strengthen a few co-worker relationships, then an escape game event might be something to consider!
And if you are thinking of scheduling a day when your group could visit an escape room in Atlanta, I know a great place.
Having met and spent time with the owner, Time to Escape is an impressive location – and I am excited to have partnered with them as a professional facilitator for clients who seek to give their people an Atlanta escape room experience that can also offer additional team building activities.
Time to Escape is Atlanta’s “most immersive” Escape Room location, and they offer three tiers of programs for their corporate clients:
OPTION 1 – Their unique and immersive escape room experience (event is about 1 hour)
OPTION 2 – Their unique and immersive escape room experience
…followed by a debriefing session with one of their trained employees where your people will unpack the escape room interactions and identify how those conversation can become a lesson for improving conversations and behaviors in your office moving forward. (event is about 1.5 hours)
OPTION 3 – Their unique and immersive escape room experience
…followed by a debriefing session with one of their trained employees where your people will unpack the escape room interactions and identify how those conversation can become a lesson for improving conversations and behaviors in your office moving forward.
…followed by another 90-120 minutes of experiential activities tailored to your group’s needs and situation that will be professionally facilitated fun – with a purpose. (event is about 3 – 3.5 hours)
I am happy to partner with Dan, the owner at Time to Escape, as the facilitator for their “option 3” events… and look forward to learning more about you and your team, should you choose to include an escape room as part of an upcoming team building experience.
Until that time, take a look at the many team building resources that are available in the Team Toolbox page of my website!
