The Escape Game Is Epic For Everyone
Whether in real life or virtually, The Escape Game Irvine is an awesome place for your team to spend 60 minutes collaborating in a high-intensity, epic environment. Playing a team building game helps them grow closer together and develop professional skills that will improve company culture.
At the Escape Game Irvine, your team will encounter a variety of fun and engaging worlds—late night at a market where you’ve been sent on investigation; inside a prestigious museum searching for a stolen masterpiece. Not sure what to expect? Take a deeper look at some of the immersive worlds that your group of people can step into during their escape room team building event.
Gold Rush: The 1800s California gold rush was a time when just about anyone could get lucky with a fortune. No one knew this better than your recently deceased relative, Clyde Hamilton. Though he’s since passed, the prospector left behind quite a pretty penny in gold. As his surviving next of kin, he’s offered you a chance to claim the gold fortune as an inheritance for yourself…if you can find it! You’ve only got 60 minutes to get into Clyde’s cabin and take the gold stash before news of the fortune reaches other greedy ears in town…
Special Ops: Mysterious Market: You and your fellow agents have been sent to investigate the area’s local market. It’s late. It’s quiet. But something is not quite right. Just as you’re about to wrap up your inspection, you encounter a very unexpected twist. Should you have seen this coming?
Prison Break: The year is 1955. You’ve been wrongfully accused of a crime, and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Your new “home” is a cell that once belonged to an inmate who disappeared without a trace…or did he? Some claim he escaped. Others swear he was murdered by the infamously cruel warden. But no one actually knows…can you escape before you suffer the same fate?
The Heist: Your world-class espionage outfit has landed you inside a prestigious art museum. A recently stolen masterpiece is presumed hidden within the office of the museum’s egotistical curator, Vincent Hahn. With the help of your intelligence agent on the outside, you have one hour to find your way into Hahn’s office, recover the painting, and slip away before Hahn returns.
Playground: Summer is here! Well, almost. If you and your friends are going to leave for summer vacation, you’ll need your final report card. Here’s the problem: you haven’t finished your work and these assignments are unlike anything you’ve encountered in a classroom before. Luckily, you’ve got a great squad and everyone brings something different to the table. Band together and ace the ultimate group project. Pass or fail, you’re in this together!
The Depths: It's going down! Mysterious videos from a rumored undersea laboratory surface, detailing some strange and troubling experiments. Led by the excitable Dr. Leah, you embark into the depths of the ocean to uncover what really happened down there. But be warned, dark turns await! You’re not alone in these waters…
Our Escape Rooms Have Been Designed With Careful Attention To Every Detail
We want to create the most epic experience for your successful team. Here’s what others have to say about The Escape Game Irvine:
“We’ve played a lot of escape rooms and the production values of these rooms are the best. The puzzles are fun and just challenging enough to be tough but solvable, the tech is fantastic and the theming of the rooms is amazing! The first room we did was one of the coolest rooms we’ve ever seen. You really feel like you’re in a cabin in the woods somewhere.
The game masters were great and overall, it was a great experience. Definitely a ‘can’t miss’ if you’re into escape rooms.”
“I’ve played almost 70 escape rooms to date and The Escape Game has some of the best games I have ever played. I played in group sizes of 3-5, with players experience-levels between one game and over 100 games played, and everyone enjoyed each game. The first we played was Prison Break, which was a blast from start to finish. The immersion was fantastic and the puzzles were well suited for the story.
Next was Gold Rush, which was even better. There was an element in this game that I never thought I’d get to do in an escape room! Third was The Heist, which I had played previously in Orlando. Honestly, The Heist is my least favorite game out of the five currently at this location, but it’s worth playing if you are wanting to play another room without having to travel elsewhere.
Fourth was Playground, which very easily secured a spot in my all time top five favorite games. Just play it, trust me. Lastly was Spec Ops, which had a fantastic transition between play spaces and unique puzzles for each of the spaces.
This is not a company you want to skip playing. I HIGHLY recommend playing here, especially Playground, Gold Rush, and Special Ops. Thanks to Zack for having me and my team play!”
“This place is AMAZING!! I have done a ton of escape rooms, and this one is without a doubt my favorite. They put so much attention to detail in the rooms.
I did the Gold Rush room, and it was so much fun! We completed it with 7 minutes left with just a group of 3.
I like that it’s not just one room—you get to solve puzzles to get into other rooms. It was challenging without being too difficult. All of the props and decorations are extremely well thought-out and high quality! We will return!!!”
Team Building Is Especially Important In An Increasingly Digital Age
Are you and your team feeling the monotony of meetings? In this Zoom-intense and meeting-heavy world, we all need a break from the day-to-day. If your team works in-person every day, it’s important to have moments where they can get out of the office. And if your team is remote, team building is all the more important without the day-to-day interaction found in the office.
Whether you only recently started the remote working model or you’re an early adopter and your team has been remote for years, working remotely comes with its own set of problems.
In a recent Buffer survey of over 3,500 remote workers, while 98% of workers agreed with the statement that they want to continue to work remotely (at least some of the time) for the rest of their careers, they struggle with collaboration, communication, problem solving, and loneliness. However, the benefits of team building can counteract these problems.
The good news is The Escape Game Irvine can help! Our epic and expertly crafted escape rooms are available virtually! To play, your team can take on one of our escape games via a live camera feed, hosted by one of our Game Guides, who will be your eyes, ears, hands, and feet in the room!
