An intro to Virtual Escape Rooms
Team up with your colleagues to solve devious puzzles and escape before the time runs out!

You want to break free?

If you’re looking to connect with your team members from around the country or around the world, virtual escape rooms are an exciting way to build team spirit and boost morale remotely.

It’s simple: solve all of the challenges before the timer runs out and everyone is free to go. Run out of time, however, and you and your associates are (metaphorically!) locked in for good.

With a wide range of themes packed full of brainteasers and conundrums, you and your team of colleagues or clients will be tested to the limits.

What is an online escape room?

Businesses have long used team-building events to build high-performing teams, motivate colleagues, and help groups of people understand each other better.

But the rise in hybrid working, work-from-home and globally distributed teams has made team-building more challenging.

Online escape rooms are an exciting way to get the team talking and thinking while taking a break from the business-as-usual.

These virtual games are a great way for teams to connect at the start of a big project, celebrate quarterly results, or connect with clients to close that deal.

How long do virtual escape rooms take?

Online escape rooms take anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes, with most lasting around 60 minutes. Starting with a short briefing to set the scene, lay out the rules and start the timer before the challenge kicks off, online escape rooms usually give the contestants a set time to escape. Once the team escapes or the time runs out, the awards (or forfeits) are handed out to the team.

How does a virtual escape room work?

Virtual escape rooms can be run a number of different ways but the most popular is to use video conferencing technology such as Zoom, Teams or Webex. There, the host will share the instructions and set you on your way. Breakout rooms are often used to allow your group to be split into teams.

Most professional online escape rooms make use of a mix of videos and gaming technology where everyone can log into the same game or navigate a point-and-click room through a shared screen.


How do I host a virtual escape room?

Hosting your own online escape room is a great way to connect with friends, family and team members. With a bit of careful planning, you can host your very own virtual escape room.

To host your own virtual game you’ll need a few things:
– Video meeting room (Zoom, Teams, Meet)
– Rules
– A theme
– Challenges (and answers!)
– Prizes (and forfeits)

One popular way of hosting your own virtual escape room is to use presentation slides to set the scene while everyone spots the answer.

How do online escape rooms work?

Most virtual escape rooms have a short 15-20 minute briefing and then take around 60 minutes to complete. By being virtual, all our online escape games can be organised to accommodate international colleagues across multiple time zones.

These exciting, challenging and nail-biting online games are a great way to kickstart a team day, a project kick-off or even as a standalone session during the day to recognise high performers.

At the end of the challenge, you’ll see your coworkers in a new light, you’ll share laughs and nerves as you do everything you can to break out of the room before the time runs out.

Virtual escape rooms are full to the brim with fun, thinking and bonding. Connect with your coworkers today to reward, recognise and refresh the team after all their hard work.

Join some of the best organisations across the world in booking an online escape room to build stronger teams. High-performing teams are forged when you develop communication and connection in and outside of work. Don’t let location get in the way of looking after your team.
