Virtual Escape Room

Grab a drink and a device and try something thrilling that blends collaboration, creativity, and a dash of competition.

Escape Rooms are a popular game for people looking to use logic and puzzle-solving skills to ‘escape’ from some complicated situations. In a team, find clues that help you solve a mystery and escape as quickly as possible!! Usually played in-person, you can now take on the challenge virtually – anywhere you are! Compete against other industry professionals in a true ‘battle of the brains’. Register as a group to join as a team (up to 8) or register as an individual and we’ll place you on a team. So get solving! We look forward to seeing you there.
