Almost exactly 3 years ago from our Seattle HQ, I wrote a treatise on Why Escape Rooms are the Best Teambuilding Activity in the World. Since then:
Puzzle Break has opened several new locations across the country and we’ve facilitated teambuilding experiences for thousands and thousands.
Our team has designed and developed numerous world famous experiences for Royal Caribbean Cruise Line
Hundreds and hundreds of companies have played host to our revolutionary off-site portable Escape Experiences that we deliver and run for groups of all shapes and sizes
Critically, escape rooms and team puzzle experiences have only continued their explosive growth in the corporate space
It’s high time I revisited my bold claim that Escape Rooms are the best teambuilding activity in the world.
In many ways, I’m happy to report I nailed it. When I wrote the first teambuilding article in 2016, we had only been serving customers for ~2 and a half years. I knew from my experience as a Microsoft and Electronic Arts exec that Escape Rooms were filling a gigantic need in the corporate teambuilding / morale space. However, we still didn’t know if Puzzle Break experiences would stand the test of time. We hoped, but did not know, the often-fleeting corporate activity zeitgeist would remain focused in the world of interactive experiences for teams as a way to both build new relationships and strengthen existing ones. It has, in spades. We serve more corporate customers than ever before at all of our locations, including our original Seattle spot.
However, it would have been foolish to rest on our laurels. Puzzle Break was the best teambuilding activity in the world in 2016, and it would have taken a special kind of hubris to assume we would remain so with no effort. Since then, we’ve spent more money than ever crafting one-of-a-kind team experiences that are painstakingly crafted to maximize team engagement and improvement.
Additionally, we’ve doubled down on our efforts to bring Puzzle Break Escape Experiences to offsite events across the country. Too often, we would get requests for 50, 100, 300, 1000+ players. Have you tried cramming 1000 folks into an escape room? It ain’t a pretty sight!
We are now proud to offer multiple large-scale offsite experiences that capture 100% of the magic that makes escape rooms special in a way that scales infinitely in any space. Not only that, but we can effortlessly run our offsite games in any space, for teams of any size, at any time in the middle of any agenda, all with minimal disruption or planning required. We deploy a team of specialists to corporate meetings, global team offsites, morale events, product launches, you name it. Anywhere in the US. We set up quickly, temporarily take over any space, run an unforgettable escape experience for an unlimited number of simultaneous players, and vanish. Our ever-increasing portfolio of portable experiences has been a smash hit, and we couldn’t be more excited about the future?
