Full details

How it works

Attendees collaborate out loud and draw on the screen to solve interactive puzzles. After instructions, your group will be broken into teams that compete to solve puzzles the fastest. At the end, we announce the winners! Fully moderated experience - live moderator works with each team throughout the entire game, providing hints and answering questions.

  • This is a one-hour virtual escape game, including instructions and wrap-up with one moderator for about every 7 attendees.
  • Participants work together in breakout rooms to solve puzzles and escape first.
  • Teams can be divided randomly or you are welcome to pre-assign teams as you wish.
  • Teams will crack codes, watch videos, and find clues to unlock the next step of their adventure. At the end, the whole group comes back together and the winner is announced based on total time and hint penalties.
  • We can accommodate up to 600 participants in one session (all divided out into teams with their own moderator).

*Our recommended team size is 7-10 participants if you would like to guarantee to play on two teams, we recommend booking for 14 participants, or you can pay an additional moderator fee.
