What is it?

An escape room experience is a wonderful team building activity. It is a real-life adventure game where you have to work well as a group to succeed. How you communicate with each other is critical. The rooms have been cleverly designed so that your team will require different skill sets to complete the mission in the best possible time.

Will it meet my needs?

We offer bespoke team building experiences tailored to your specific needs. From a 60-minute adventure for 2 people to a full day where we close the doors to the public and dedicate our entire business to you and your team! (60+ people). (Please see Added Value Package below)

Are you experienced?

Between us we have over 35 years’ experience in the corporate world of building and leading successful teams and we will make sure that your objectives from the session are met. Please see our LinkedIn profiles for further details;

How long will it take?

One full game takes around 90 minutes – it’s around 15 minutes to brief and prepare, up to 1 hour to play and then a further 15 minutes to debrief and time for a team photo.
In Southampton we currently have 4 sets of rooms live so up to 25 players can play at once with up to 25 observers looking on, so a total of 50 people. This would take around 2.5 hours. Soon we will have a fifth room available, taking our capacity to nearly 60 playing and watching, again for a 3 hour overall experience.
In Basingstoke we will soon also have 4 rooms, though the overall capacity will be slightly smaller. Please call to discuss options.
Naturally, once the observers have watched their team mates they swap around though they will play a different game. So for example if a team observes the 80’s room they will then play the 50’s room.

Real-time feed – watch your colleagues in action!

Would you like to be able to see your colleagues in action in the room and to be able to hear what they are saying? (we have cameras and microphones in every room). What about the opportunity to take an active role in their adventure and give them support (or mis-direction!). At Exciting Escapes we offer this “real time feed” opportunity. Our customers have told us that this is often as much fun as playing the room itself!

Don’t just take our word for it!

Below are just some of the comments from our customers left on TripAdvisor, Facebook and Google;

Fantastic fun had with a group of colleagues. Warm and friendly people running it and the rooms are well thought out. Never done before and would definitely do it again.

Such an amazing afternoon spent here with my Work Team.

Soooo much fun! There were four of us that went as a work reward and we wanted to do something a bit different. Exciting Escapes didn't let us down, it was brilliant, I don't think the team have ever laughed together so much in all the time we have worked together.

I visited this place for our "team bonding" with work colleagues. We went to 1950 room and we really enjoyed it! The tasks are quite complicated but not impossible to solve. We had lots of laughter and fun and definitely worked a lot on team work.

SO COOL. Really great from start to finish. My workmates weren't sure about doing it right up until we got in the room but after they were raving about it. Deffo doing the 50s room and the others when they open. If you are reading this and aren't sure... JUST DO IT!
