The #1 Escape Rooms In Atlanta
Try our escape rooms for the most effective team building activities in Atlanta!
Team Building That’s Safe, Fun & Effective
Running a successful organization shouldn’t feel like you’re herding cats. There are times when you have to bring everyone together to focus on the results. After all, the results are all that matters. That’s why there are escape rooms popping up all around Atlanta.
What’s An Escape Room And Why Should I Care?
The concept of an escape game is simple. Once everyone is ready, the game master will explain a few simple rules. You’ll be taken to the escape room you selected which will have a specific theme- find Sherlock Holmes, resuce Harry Houdini, escape from the Pharoah’s tomb, etc. There are a myriad of themes in all the escape rooms in Atlanta.
Once the game begins, you’ll be asked to find all the clues and solve all the puzzles necessary to escape the room. Don’t worry, the fire marshal makes us leave the doors unlocked, but leaving early just wouldn’t be any fun. And, here’s the best part- your team has exactly 60 minutes to solve all the tasks to escape. Sounds easy, right? Given that the average rate of escape across all the escape games in Atlanta is only 30%, not so much.
The best part is that CEO’s everywhere are catching on to the idea that escape rooms are the best team building activities in Atlanta. Why? Lots of reasons, but one thing is for sure, the team has to work together to be successful.
Team Building That Even HR Will Like!
In a litigious world, it can be hard to find team building activities that don’t keep your head of HR up at night. While there are plenty of team building activities in Atlanta that involve being athletic, bopping each other, running around in big bubbles or tackling each other, an escape room never involves any of that. No running allowed, so no risk of muscle pulls or people calling in the next day because they’re hurt. We can’t imagine anyone getting hurt in an escape game (except maybe their feelings when they don’t escape!).
The biggest challenge in an escape game is to the mind. You’ll find a series of puzzles and clues that call upon a variety of different skill sets. Without giving too much away, you may find verbal clues, numeric clues, observational clues, etc. But, one this is for sure, our escape rooms will stretch your brain. That’s the only muscle you’re at risk for pulling.
Team Building That Actually Builds Teams
While laser tag is a whole lot of fun, at the end of the day, there’s just not a whole lot that you can point to where the skills of shooting your CEO can directly translate to improved performance in the workplace. That’s where an escape room can make all the difference. Some of the skills necessary to be successful in an escape room include:
- Communication skills
- Leadership skills
- Teamwork & cooperation
- Problem solving skills
- Creative thinking
- Conflict resolution
- Situational awareness
- Deductive reasoning
- Team spirit
In reviewing this list, you can easily see where these skills are often written into various job descriptions across your C-suite. Not only do these skills directly translate into an opportunity to improve at work, but at Three Keys Escape Games, we have a conference room where you can process the experience afterward. This means you can use your team’s experience with the escape room as a large “coachable moment” to help various members solidify the lessons. Isn’t that what team building is really all about.
You can even decide what kind of CEO you are- do you want to play with your team or sit with the game master and watch your team on closed circuit TV? Both options are available. And, yes, the game master watches every game on closed circuit TV in order to facilitate the game along.
With some escape rooms, if you get stuck, you stay stuck until someone comes up with a new idea- while the clock ticks down. At Three Keys Escape Games, our game master will offer up to 3 hints or “keys” to help you escape the room. Since the team has to decide when to take a hint, this helps move everyone along. We find facilitated escape games are much more effective for helping everyone have a better experience.
Team Building For Any Kind Of Team
Escape rooms are effective for bringing people together from all parts of life. In the years that we’ve been open, we’ve had executives from:

Team Against Team
We have the only escape game in Atlanta where you can split your team and send one half to one escape room and the rest to another to see who can escape first. It’s spy vs spy where one of our rooms has a James Bond-ish theme and the other is more of a hippy, groovy kind of spy. Pit your team against each other to see who emerges with the most bragging rights. It’s team building within the team.
