An escape room is great for any team to put their knowledge and critical thinking to the test. From prison breaks to mining missions, there is an escape room for everyone and every group. Escape rooms are great for team building as teams learn to communicate and work together to solve challenges. Different team members will need to lead and follow at different times and all need to communicate effectively while creating opportunities to learn.

 For the past year and a half, at Elevent, we have hosted over 2,000 virtual escape rooms events with over 20,000 participants so we wanted to take a moment and recognize the highest-rated escape games on our platform that delighted our guests. These escapes are all fully moderated while some are in a physical location but hosted virtually whereas others are hosted online and it is a digital escape.
