Team Building Activities That Are Safe, Fun AND Can Improve Work Performance!
When it comes to getting your people moving in the same direction, it can sometimes feel like you’re herding cats. That’s where it helps to have some team building activities that actually help.
Far too often, people turn to various activities for team building that only serve to further alienate the staff- from each other as well as management. That’s where escape games can help. In fact, some of our players tell us we have the best team building activities in Atlanta!
What’ s An Escape Game?
The concept is simple. You and your group will be escorted to a room with a specific theme. We won’t have to explain the theme- it’ll be clear! (Like a good joke, if you have to explain it, it doesn’t work!). The game master will explain the rules and instructions you need, but the rest is up to you. You’ll have exactly 60 minutes to solve all the puzzles and find all the clues you need to escape the room. Think you’re up for the challenge?
So, how hard are our escape games? That’s entirely up to you and your group. If you’re a lone wolf, expect to fail, but if you effectively work with the group, you’ve got a decent shot.
Team Building Vs. Team Bonding
Look, if you put your team in a kitchen and give them the task of baking a cake, they will, in fact, have a team bonding experience, but will these lessons transfer into the workplace? Eh, maybe.
We definitely know that splitting up the accounting department and the sales department into two teams and letting them get into bubble balls and bash each other around a soccer field would be fun to watch, but would it be effective to bring the two teams together? Um…no.
Laser tag is incredible fun (for some), but this is more along the lines of team bonding (or team splitting depending upon which team you’re on!). The problem is that there are tons of ideas out there about how to bond together. Escape rooms offers both- team building and team bonding.
When your team goes into an escape room, they have to work together on little tasks in order to move along the line toward the big goal- escaping the room. During the hour, everyone can contribute, and the highs and lows of the experience brings people together.
The Science Of Team Building
When it comes to getting people together, there are studies out there (somewhere) that indicate the most important factors in team building activities are time and the stress of a shared experience. Our escape games give you both of these things in a safe, fun environment. No one gets hurt. No broken bones. It’s all of the challenges without any of the risk management headaches.

Why Three Keys Escape Games For Team Building?
Believe it or not, there are escape rooms around Atlanta that will tell you the theme and toss a bunch of puzzles at you. You’re still on the clock, but we believe that if you have to be told what the theme is, it’s not a very good escape room. Our goal is to immerse you into the experience. It’s part of the fun as well as the adventure.
Also, there are escape rooms in Atlanta where, if you get stuck, you stay stuck. All our escape games are monitored by a game master. If your team decides they need a clue, we’ll give you up to three “keys” or clues to help move your group along. This is called a facilitated escape game.
Also, we have a huge conference room where you can take your team after the experience and talk about what happened. This gives you, the boss, lots of opportunities for “coachable moments” to help solidify the lessons of the escape game.
Finally, if you’re the leader of the team, you have the ability to either play the escape game along with your team or you can watch on closed circuit TV while your team goes into action. It’s your team, your call.
Team Building & Group Dynamics
We see it all the time. Once teams get into the escape room and get started, the group dynamics unfold. For us, it’s fun to watch who takes on a leadership role, who becomes passive. Who steps up in the clutch? Who fades into the woodwork? It isn’t always who you think.
Escape games offer a safe way to help your team look at patterns that might just be getting of the way of taking their performance to the next level. Escape rooms are some of the best team building activities in Atlanta for corporate teams, sports teams, church groups, scout troops and more.
