It’s June 1962, and you’re a prisoner at the United States Federal Penitentiary, Alcatraz Island, the most secure prison ever built. In this fun, light-hearted escape room, we’ll find out if you and your team work together to take back your freedom...or if you’re destined to spend the rest of your days sweeping the cold, damp halls of …Alcatraz!

Reviews from previous clients 👇

This experience was super fun! It's a great way to build team connections, learn and laugh together doing something completely outside work! - Amy Miljevich, Google

I would HIGHLY recommend. I booked Escape Alcatraz for a virtual employee team-building event and it was a HUGE success. All of our employees gave it a 5/5. The wardens were great and so was the customer service. - Gianni Lee, SPS

We recently had a team building activity with Escape Alcatraz, and I've heard feedback from my teammates describing it as "the best team building event we've ever done." This sentiment was broadly shared throughout my team. - Angela Hsieh, Twitch

Escape Alcatraz was a great event for the team! Certainly exceeded my expectations and have had some great feedback from the team. Excellent way to break up the remote work during lockdown. Would recommend! - Imogen Fanning, Ento

How it works

Before your event, we’ll split your total group up into escape teams of ~5 participants. Teams can be pre-assigned or randomized. We’ll welcome everyone to Alcatraz at the start of the activity, give you your new inmate uniform (a fun virtual background), and then we’ll quickly whisk everyone off to their cells (breakout rooms). Teams will be greeted in their cell by one of our Wardens, who lead a short ice-breaker and then introduce the activity in detail. Teams will then have 50 minutes to complete their escape. After the time’s up, we’ll close the breakout rooms and bring everyone back for a hilarious awards presentation where we’ll introduce the teams and announce the final results! ‍

Note: Escape Alcatraz is great for anyone interested in a casual, slightly competitive activity.

🖥️Escape Alcatraz is a browser-based activity and requires no downloads or logins. We recommend that all participants join from a computer.
