With many employees around the world in self-isolation or working from home, businesses have been embracing virtual escape room experiences as a fun way to bring their staff together.
Since the start of the year, virtual escape rooms have been rising in popularity as people can connect from anywhere in the world and collaborate in a team environment on a fun game. Escape Experience, a business providing virtual escape rooms to companies as well as families and friends, has seen a dramatic uptake in their new online virtual challenges.
Starting out as a traditional brick-and-mortar business with locations in Chattanooga and Nashville in Tennessee, Escape Experience saw an opportunity to provide online virtual escape rooms to people that couldn’t physically attend their locations. This allowed the business to expand its offering and now has many multinational brands and clients from around the world that take part in fun virtual escape room challenges.
With millions of workers now in full-time remote jobs, virtual escapes have been popular among companies looking to help their remote teams get to know each other through a fun challenge. Thanks to the team-building spirit of the virtual escape room games, staff can get to know one another while working towards a common goal depending on the game challenge. With just a 60-minute time limit, players have to find a way to solve puzzles before it’s too late. From stopping a global nuclear launch to saving humanity and escaping a maximum security prison – the challenges are both fun and rewarding for all those who participate.
Thanks to virtual escapes, people are now embracing collaborative gaming as a way to get to know each other while working remotely, and escape rooms are helping to connect global teams like never before.
