Immersive, Engaging, Insightful

Team building events are our passion. We start with the best immersive experiences we can create with detailed rooms, engaging puzzles of all types and live actors as guides. Think state-of-the-art escape room with a little bit of live theater thrown in to bring it to life. Behind it all is a serious analytical approach to team training based on years of research with thousands of teams. Whether you come to one of our locations or we bring the event to you, you will see a new level of team involvement that teaches while having fun.

Team Building Packages

We have two popular team building packages that most of our clients find works well for for a single event. Both packages include a full escape room experience and professional debriefing by one of our trained staff members. 

Full Team Building Event

The Full Team Building Event includes two Mystery Escape Room Adventures and two team building discussions. The team begins by going on a Mystery Escape Room adventure of their choice without any coaching to see how well they work together. One of our trained staff members observes the team and evaluates their performance. The evaluation is then used in a team building discussion after they have finished their adventure. The discussion focuses on how the team can improve based on their performance in the first adventure and our research. After the discussion the team then tries a second Mystery Escape Room adventure where they can immediately put into practice what they learned in the discussion. After the second adventure the team then gathers for a second discussion of their performance. 

  • First hour - Mystery Escape Room Adventure

  • Second hour - Team building evaluation discussion

  • 15 minute - Break

  • Third hour - Second Mystery Escape Room Adventure

  • Fourth hour - Final team building evaluation discussion

Mini Team Building Event

The Mini Team Building Event is similar to the Full Team Building Event just half as long and with only on Mystery Escape Room Adventure and one team evaluation discussion. 

  • First hour - Mystery Escape Room Adventure

  • Second hour - Team building evaluation discussion

Professional Facilitation

We also offer the option of having a professional facilitator lead the team building discussions for an added fee. A professional facilitator is an experienced business person who is trained in our industry leading research and has a successful history of leading team building events. Depending on scheduling Les Pardew is available to lead team building discussions.

Excerpts From Customer Reviews

“I’ve been attending team building activities for 15 years and this is the best one I’ve ever attended.”

“Informative and eye opening”

“This was an absolutely phenomenal activity!”

“We drove from Star Valley, Wyoming to Salt Lake to work on team building at Mystery Escape Room….. It was totally worth the 7 hours we spent in the car today.”

“This was part of a recent work retreat and I was honestly skeptical walking into this. It turned out to be a great surprise and a fantastic team building activity.”

“I'd also recommend this to EVERYONE trying to bring together your team in the workplace, school, group, etc and learn how to work as an ego-less unit with collective consciousness to focus in, critically think together and creatively problem solve. Can't wait to go back!”
