Why an Escape Room for Corporate Events? Escape rooms make for great team-building exercises. When my wife and I met in early 2020 we found a common hobby in escape rooms and that helped us with our communication, problem-solving, and conflict resolution. At the end of 2020 we got married and since then have completed over 100 rooms together with a 70% completion rate.
We’ve rated these locations based on a number of factors:
- The quality of rooms and their puzzles
- The number of rooms and variety to support larger groups
- The general facility and it’s ability to accommodate larger groups
- The staff and customer service at the location
