The Escape Game Team Personalities

Escape game success is dependent on a wide range of skill sets and personalities. You’ll be surprised who takes the lead, who brings the whole team together and who has the big “aha” moment.

There are a few player types and team leaders we see most frequently in our team building events.

  • The Brain: An analytical mind that is quick to see a pattern and crack a code.
  • The Communicator: The Communicator is a great listener that can quickly assimilate new info and relay it to the team.
  • The Spotter: The Spotter is observant and is the first to notice something that changes the course of the experience.
  • The Orchestrator: The Orchestrator can take a lot of complex information and direct team members through a series of small steps towards victory.
  • The Tinkerer: The Tinkerer is naturally curious. They are patient and will approach challenges from new angles until finally something clicks.

In an escape game, everyone is equal and everyone is absolutely crucial to the mission’s success. A successful team is one that has numerous personalities that can gel together. Bring your team together and see those personalities, skills, and talents at work!

What Other Teams Have to Say

What about escape rooms compared to other team building activities? A trust fall may build trust (or may not) and happy hour may be fun, but an escape game is likely to be the most fun team activity you’ll ever do and will build your team more than traditional team building experiences. But don’t just take out word for it! Here’s what a few happy teams had to say:

“Looking for a great Team Building outing??? So were we 2 years ago. We cannot get enough TEG. We have completed (and escaped) Prison Break, Heist, and Gold Rush.

Now it’s become a staple around our office that other departments are planning their Escape Games to challenge our times.”

“This was the perfect idea for a team outing! We did the “Playground” room and it had a 6/10 difficulty. It was challenging for our team but we managed to escape in the last few seconds.

It really made our team think outside the box and get creative and really build up each other’s strengths. Would absolutely recommend it for a great team building exercise!”

“What a perfect team building experience! We had a blast! Can’t wait to come back!”

“We actually went as a group from work for some team building – absolutely strengthened relationships and created a fun dynamic to exercise our problem solving skills.”

“We went to the Escape Game for a team building event and had a ton of fun. I have done an escape room activity in Miami before (different company) and I felt that The Escape Game had a far superior facility and was way more high-tech. The staff was all very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this location for anyone looking for something fun to do or a team building activity.”

“My company uses Escape rooms for our team building events every time we get together as a group throughout the year. We have gone through 9 now, including some internationally. This brand is by far the best”

“This is the third escape room I’ve done, and by far the most engaging and well-produced! The satisfying “voilas” and automatic hatches opening allowed the group to focus on the puzzles themselves versus the environment, and there was a palpable build of excitement each time a puzzle was solved.

We were a group of 9 engineers so I wasn’t sure how much engagement there would be from the group, but everyone got into it and had a blast. One of the best team-building activities I’ve ever done. Bravo!”
