Team bonding and team building are totally different but equally valuable. Bring your team members closer together and develop skills that will improve your office culture. The fun of collectively taking on an adventure, combined with the rush of an escape, creates a bond like few other activities can. They don’t even need to escape for this to work! The fun is in the adventure and the shared goal, with high-level teamwork built right in.
Companies all around the country are using escape rooms as team building activities. There are lots of reasons leaders are bringing their teams to The Escape Game Jacksonville. Let’s just take a look at a few:
New Hires: Some companies are using escape rooms in the hiring process. When you can’t meet face-to-face, virtual escape rooms are a perfect way to assess your new team member’s skills and ability to work with the team. It will be a unique process that your potential hires will be sure to talk about for days.
Leadership Development: When you put your team members in a position of leadership in a high-intensity, but low-risk environment, you can assess their style of work and leadership, and then provide helpful feedback. This experience will lead to more confidence and newly acquired skills. If you’ve got that team member who just needs a little boost for a promotion, try out an escape room for some leadership development and see if he or she is ready for the next step.
Culture Building: Every team has their own culture. That culture is going to affect the way people approach work and their level of enjoyment of that work. When you provide opportunities for your team to interact in a fun, dynamic environment, you’re giving your company culture a boost of creativity and fun. You’re showing your team that they are the most important part of the job and that you’re invested in them as people.
Fun: Not everything has to have layered reasons. Maybe your team just won that big client, maybe a team member is retiring, maybe you just want your team to have a good time. With options for both in-person and virtual, The Escape Game Jacksonville is the perfect way to spend an epic 60 minutes.
We have several options for your next team building event. Whether your team is working together in-person, or remotely, we have options for you and work hard to make it as easy as possible.
In-store: Come play one of our five epic, immersive in-store experiences. We have these games available: Prison Break, The Heist, Special Ops: Mysterious Market, Gold Rush, and Playground. They’re all great for team building and offer an experience unlike any other.
The John Maxwell Team Development Package: Take John Maxwell’s DiSC assessment and then play an escape room with your team at The Escape Game. Leaders use the connection guide to lead a team discussion that ties learnings from the assessment to the escape room experience and makes those learnings stick. Leaders also get an Executive Report that has insight into your team’s unique communication style and dynamic. You’ll review this report with a John Maxwell Leadership Coach virtually.
Remote Adventures (Virtual Option): Play our real escape games from anywhere in the world using our digital dashboard on your screen, and a real-time Game Guide as your eyes, ears, hands, and feet in the room. This works for small teams and large teams. Your team will still be able to work together to solve puzzles and unlock clues to make the daring escape, even when apart!
Unlocked for Teams (Virtual Option): Unlocked for Teams is our high-pressure, competitive team building experience. Teams of 3–5 will compete to be the first to solve a mystery and stop an infamous art thief.

“This place is amazing! For about the same amount of money it would cost you for a trip to the movies to see something you don’t even know if you’ll like this is a GUARANTEED great time that you will remember for the rest of your life, with an INTERACTIVE experience! Truly a great experience for any age, I cannot recommend The Escape Game Jacksonville highly enough.
We went for a team building event at work and I can tell you we not only had an absolute blast, it was also a great way to build camaraderie because we all had to rely on each other to succeed.
I can’t wait to go back again, and again…”
The Escape Game is a great place to take the family and is also amazing for team building events. We took our team of 6 and had a blast. It is interesting to see different team members outside of their niche growing to face the challenge of these amazing escape rooms. Annika was our guide and she executed perfectly!”
“This was such a fun, yet challenging experience! You get to have fun while using some untapped skills/potential. I recommend going with a group of at least 4-5 for sure to really add some excitement and it’s such a versatile concept because it can be a work function, team building, small outing, family fun.. anyone and everyone can go here! It’s clean and the employees were also very pleasant.”
