The Escape Game Is Epic For Everyone

Why do escape games work so well for unleashing creativity? How do they allow team members to shine?

When groups are put in a position that not only allows for creativity, but requires it for success, you’d be amazed at what even the quietest person on a team can do. People are often too scared to go out on a limb for fear of failure. However, that’s all part of the escape game process. You’ll try things that won’t work. But then you’ll try something that does work and gets your team one step closer to escaping! Exercising that creative muscle and developing communication confidence within a team leads to a more consistent willingness to try new ideas.

The Escape Game DC offers both in-person and virtual team building events. For in-person, all you have to do is book your event and we’ll prepare the rest. After stepping through the door, you’ll spend 60 minutes fully immersed in another world as your team collaborates to solve puzzles and find clues on the epic adventure of a lifetime!

If you’d like to organize a virtual team building activity for your company, our team makes it easy to pull off an epic event! Virtual escape rooms work great for teams with three members all the way to teams with thousands of members! While you won’t be able to physically be in the room, our Game Guide will be your eyes, ears, hands, and feet in the room. We’ve made it easy to keep track of your progress through the digital dashboard.

In an escape room, everyone is important and everyone is on a level playing ground. The individual skills of each team member will get a time to shine as you all work together. Any issues in communication your team may have experienced will be broken through because communicating well is key to escaping our rooms. Unleash leadership and creativity like never before in your team when you book an escape room at The Escape Game DC.

There are a few players types we see frequently in team building activities:

  • 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.

Who do you think will fit into some of these player types on your team? Book with us and watch an escape room bring out the creativity and leadership we’re all looking for in our teams. But, it’s also just really fun!

You can be the next team to experience the epic, high-intensity adventure of an escape room at The Escape Game DC.
