Escape Rooms Are The Best Team Building Activities!
When it comes to getting your people to come together as a team, as a leader, it’s essential to provide the basic ingredients necessary to help them find a common bond. We know from our own experiences that people bond over going through stressful activities together- college, the military, etc. Why not provide a stressful activity that’s also a lot of fun? That’s the escape rooms at Three Keys Escape Games!
Why Escape Rooms Are The Best Team Building Activities
When you need your team to start working together more effectively, it can sometimes feel like you’re herding cats. You always need a bag of tricks at your disposal to use to make your team more effective. Few things are more effective at bringing people together in a stressful, but fun way than escape rooms.
Escape rooms or escape games as they’re commonly referred to are effective team building activities because they require your people to utilize all the essential skills necessary to be successful at their jobs. Teamwork, communication, problem solving, etc.- all are critical for escaping the room.
Located in Suwanee, Georgia, people are driving from all around Atlanta to experience the fun and adventure of our escape rooms. But, there are some basic things to know before anyone makes the drive.
What’s An Escape Room?
It’s always a good start to know what you’re getting into before you walk through the front door. This simply sets a proper expectation.
If you’ve never heard of an escape room, prepare to learn about something really fun. The idea is very simple. Once your people are all checked in, a game master will explain a few rules to you before you are taken to the escape game you’ve selected and you’ll have exactly 60 minutes to find all the clues and solve all the puzzles to escape the room. Like we said, simple concept, but the actual process, well, things don’t always go as planned.
Escape rooms actually began many years ago as an online activity where browsers would login to a room and search for clues around the room to escape. Someone got the idea to make this more of a live event, thus the idea of live escape games was born. Popular in Europe for years, they’re now a growing trend in this country.
Also known as mystery rooms, puzzle rooms, live escape rooms and even live adventure rooms, each escape room is decorated in a way that’s consistent with the theme, and every escape room has a specific theme.
At Three Keys Escape Games, we have five different escape rooms- each one has a special theme. The clues and puzzles are consistent with the theme of the room. Our goal is to immerse your group into the experience. It’s a challenge that can serve a variety of purposes!
Escape Rooms Are Like Time Machines
If you’ve every dreamed of traveling back in time (and who hasn’t, right?), escape rooms can take you to another world. Imagine stepping back into Harry Houdini’s dressing room, or an Egyptian tomb or maybe Sherlock Holmes’ parlor. Let’s just say that we get a lot of compliments on how well decorated our escape rooms are.
Our goal is simple- to immerse you in the entire escape game adventure. We want you lost in the activities and the challenges. To us, that’s what makes Three Keys Escape games different from all the rest. Book your one of our escape rooms today!
Team building & Escape Games
When it comes to getting your team moving in the right direction, there are a lot of team building ideas to consider, but few have as many effective takeaways as escape games. The biggest reason escape rooms make the best team building activities is because the boss can watch everything that as it happens.
All our escape rooms are equipped with a closed circuit TV that feeds into our control booth. The boss can watch the entire process as his people scramble around trying to find all the clues and solve the puzzles to escape the room. You can watch the highs and lows of the entire adventure. Afterward, you can use our big conference room to process your experience and review the lessons. This allows for those “coachable moments” that can aid with performance and increased skills- skills that can only improve results!
A Team Building Outing To Improve Skills
When it comes to helping your staff improve their performance, it can be tough to find ways to safely and objectively test those skills. Simply put, a leader can run out of material to cover or observations to make. That’s where an escape room can bring out the best in your people. Your team only has 60 minutes to perform, but the takeaways can last for months. Some of the skills necessary to succeed include:
- Strong Communication
- Ability To Work In Teams
- Working Under Deadlines
- Conflict Resolution
- Observational Skills
- Analytic Abilities
- Problem Solving
There are probably many more skills necessary to be effective and successful at your workplace, but this is a great working list. All of these skills help groups work through the problems of an escape room. So, the next time you’re looking for team building ideas, put escape rooms on the top of the list.
Why Three Keys Escape Games For Team Building?
The idea of escape rooms has really taken off. It’s a very popular thing to do in town and has made many lists of “fun things to do in Atlanta”. But all escape games are not created equal. There are escape rooms around where your group is taken to little more than a conference room and given a series of tasks and challenges. If you get stuck, well, too bad. You stay stuck.
At Three Keys Escape Games, all our rooms are facilitated. This means that a game master watches every game and if your group gets stuck, we’ll give you up to three hints or “keys” to help move the group along. Some teams make a decision to never use any hints just for the bragging rights. Some groups use all three. Others could use 100 hints (we never give that many!).
We Focus On The Team Building Exercises
We think there’s nothing wrong with a little competition now and then. In fact, we think that can really help the team work better together. That’s why we created Atlanta’s only escape room challenge where you can split your team and compete against each other.
We have two escape rooms with similar themes- one room is a traditional 007 type of spy theme and another is more of an international man of mystery spy theme escape room. Send half your team into one and the other half into the other and see which one can escape the room fastest (and save the world quickest!). Winner has bragging rights…until next time! That’s why we think our escape room challenge is one of the best team building exercises in Atlanta.
The next time you’re need team building ideas around Atlanta, we’re pretty keen on the idea of escape rooms. The skills are directly transferrable to success in the workplace. Book your escape games online today.
Team Building For Which Teams?
When it comes to helping teams come together effectively, there are really no types of groups an escape game can’t help. We’ve had such a variety of groups come through already in our short time open, and we’ve gotten outstanding feedback and reviews. Besides corporate team building activities, we’ve had these types of groups come play our escape games:
- Church Youth Groups
- Boy Scout Troops
- Sports Teams- of all types
- Virtual Teams
- Sales Teams
- Birthday Parties
- Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties
- Police Officers
Our Escape Rooms
At Three Keys Escape Games, we have five different escape rooms that variety in difficulty. Of course, a lot depends upon how many people you have in your group. It’s a simple fact that in some escape rooms, two people alone are probably going to struggle to escape the room in time. That’s why we give recommendations as to how many people to bring with you for each game.

Regardless of what kind of team you work with, escape games are just a great way to bring people together. Our escape rooms provide a shared experience that promotes all the skills necessary for success in whatever task is at hand.
Our Escape Rooms
The game master opens the door to 221B Baker Street, and your group is taken into the parlor of a home in Victorian England. It’s the home of the great Sherlock Holmes, but the great detective has gone missing. Your group is tasked with finding him, but you only have an hour and the clock is ticking. Use your powers of observation and the deductive reasoning of Holmes himself to find all the clues and escape the room. Once the clock starts, the game is afoot!
This escape room holds anywhere from 2-8 players, but it’s best played with 3 or more players. Obviously, the more players you have, the more your chances of escaping improve. If you’re looking for difficulty, we’d say this one is probably a 2 out of 5. It’s challenging, but not the most difficulty room we have.
- Sherlock Holmes
Your group can step even farther back in time into ancient Egypt where you’ll find yourself locked in the Pharoah’s tomb. You’re standing next to the sarcophagus and surrounded by burial objects of all sorts. It’s about this time when you begin wishing you’d paid more attention in class and actually learned hieroglyphics. But, the truth is, you’re going to need more than the writing on the wall to escape the room.
This escape game holds anywhere from 2 to 10 people, but it’s best with 4 or more. Truthfully, two people would have a hard time in this room. We place the difficulty level at a solid 3 out of 5.
The irony of having an escape room centering around the world’s greatest escape artist isn’t lost on us. The scene is simple: Harry is onstage performing his world famous water coffin escape, but an archrival has tampered with his locks. Little does Harry know that his escape will fail and worse, he will suffocate and die unless your group can solve all the clues and find the emergency oxygen valve. You have exactly 60 minutes to save Harry. The pressure is on. Is your team up for the challenge?
This game holds from 2 to 6 well but is best suited for 3 or more players. Be advised, this escape room is one of the more challenging, so tell your people to bring their “A” game.
SECRET AGENT CHALLENGE - 007
You will enter the world of espionage with 007, as international terrorist and arms dealer Drake Estes is hosting a casino night. Estes is planning a strike of biological weapons in major cities around the world. Your mission: Find the launch codes and abort the launch in 60 minutes or less. Are you up for the challenge?
This game can also be played for larger groups with Secret Agent Challenge - Flower Power as a race to see which team can escape faster! When it comes to team building in Atlanta, this is one of the most popular things to do!
SECRET AGENT CHALLENGE - FLOWER POWER
You enter the pad of the international secret agent Lance Bender. Lance has been captured by a splinter group of the KGB and they are coming to steal his secret flower power potion. You and your team has 60 minutes before the KGB splinter group arrives to try and steal the potion. Can you find and release it before they arrive? Groovy!
This game can also be played for larger groups with Secret Agent Challenge - 007 as a race to see which team can escape faster!
