Epic Team Building at The Escape Game

Whether you’re an in-person, remote, or hybrid organization, intentional team building is essential for company success. At The Escape Game, we understand that and have created experiences that are not only enjoyable, but beneficial for you and your team.

Playing an escape room enables groups to use all the communication, collaboration, and problem-solving skills they normally need in the office. However, this environment allows team members to exercise those skills in a low-stakes situation, rather than at work on the job. Your team will grow closer together and develop professional skills that then improve company culture.

High Quality Games

We take pride in creating immersive games that feel worlds away from the office. From rustic cabins to prestigious museums, we want rooms that are part of the story. We want to create the most epic experience for your successful team. Each element is carefully crafted by our game and design teams to feel realistic and immersive. Take a look at the kinds of sets and escape rooms you can find at The Escape Game New Jersey for your team building experience.

Gold Rush: For nearly two centuries, the hope of gold has lured people to the hills of Northern California. No one was more captivated than Clyde Hamilton, a greedy old prospector who loved to gamble. Clyde made too many bets with the wrong crowd and now he’s missing. You’ve been tipped off to where he stashed his gold…but so has the mob. Find it first!

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…

What Others Have To Say

Here’s what others have to say about their experiences with The Escape Game:

“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! The 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.

The 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!!!”
