Escape Hunt


Escape Hunt FAQs

Can our company do team building here? Absolutely. We have a separate division dedicated especially to corporate and special events. Please contact us for details of a private corporate event in our adventure base in Sydney or a themed event at your workplace. In our games center we specialize in team building exercises by playing the games first as groups and then seminar sessions afterwards to build on corporate objectives such as ice breaking, group puzzles, IQ The Escape Hunt Experience – Escape The Room In Barcelona, Spain, evaluation as well as having fun!

What kind of corporate events can we do? The idea is learning through play. We aim to assess, discuss, analyse and teach. We do all of the above for teamwork, leadership, personal motivation, team structure, empowerment, initiative building, ongoing corporate and individual improvement. We use game-play to challenge people individually and in group settings.

We observe the individual and group interaction and provide profiling based on this and subsequent seminar discussion. We set discussion tasks and assess ability to solve these real world tasks also. Finally, we discuss the findings at individual and management levels and provide a verbal and written assessment (output) as required. All work is based on a combination of sound organizational psychology principles and practical change management tools.

What is the best program? Our experience shows that the ideal program is a combination of escape game play followed by group work. This is the only format we offer now. This can be adapted for group sizes between 10 and 60, for different times of the day and to suit corporate needs, but follows the following format for a typical 3 hour event:

  1. Play our world famous escape games in the rooms in groups of 3 to 6 players per room (60 mins).
  2. Break to relax and have tea and biscuits (30 mins).
  3. Group exercises in our team building area. These can be ice breaking, sales training, customer service training, team building or even IQ training (60 mins).
  4. De-brief and close (30 mins).

How many people can you accommodate? We handle group sizes from 10 to 100 and regular groups sizes are 20, 40, 60 for example. Our six game rooms can accommodate up to 36 people at a time. If you have more than 36 people, we rotate the guests through different phases.

What is all this based on? Our founder is a qualified psychologist who specialized and practiced in organizational (work) psychology. He has used these skills coupled with a broad commercial background to consult for many companies over his career. He brings these skills to our Escape Hunt corporate challenges to make something truly unique.

How can we organize our corporate event? We deal with our corporate clients directly. We prefer to deal directly with you rather than via a travel agent or event planner. In our experience, these third parties cannot communicate the options effectively and so much detail gets lost. For this reason, we strongly urge you to contact us directly.

Who have you worked with recently? Our Bangkok venue runs around 2–3 corporate events each week and here is some recent client feedback on the Escape Hunt Experience:

“Fantastic idea and a great team building event. The team at The Escape Hunt tailored an experience for my Senior Executive Team at work and it was simply outstanding. Unfortunately I cannot say too much about the experience itself as that would spoil it but I can say that it was good fun, challenging and insightful. Thoroughly recommend – Paul and his team of game hosts were wonderful. In fact I cannot wait to return with my family..” – Jonathan Walker, Country President, AstraZeneca, Thailand.

“The team really enjoyed the team building. It was a lot of fun and really useful for us as a whole in getting to know each other, and learn about individuals personalities outside of the office…” – Alicia P. T. McKenzie, Chief Operating Officer, Footsteps Worldwide, Thailand.

“Definitely Encourages teamwork and clue solving.  It was very a good experience. The staffs were extremely helpful, and the setup was well designed. Our group (all first timers) had a lot of fun!  The challenge was reasonable and it is an activity which everyone can enjoy!  A good bonding session within the team and last but not least, really great heart-racing fun, and an excellent exercise for the brain too!  We will definitely recommend it to other team/family/friend…” – Doris Toh, Shell Oil (Marina Project), Singapore.

“Warm regards to Paul and the Escape Hunt Team. I just wanted to highlight what a great afternoon we had at Escape Hunt Experience Bangkok. It was the culmination for us, of a 3 day sales conference, which focused on product knowledge and team bonding as our staff are located as far away as Bali, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta and Phuket as well as the regional office in Bangkok. So after a very concentrated 3 days the Escape Hunt Experience was exactly what we needed to let the team have a great time and face a challenge that was out of their normal experience. The team responded so well and the feedback at the end of the experience focused on our strengths and made us reflect how we can apply that in our daily roles. The experience is very well designed and even though we are a diverse group of cultures it allowed us all to participate and contribute to solving the murder. We had 12 in the team which we split into 4 groups and all came out bubbling with enthusiasm even if the clock beat some groups. So I would have no hesitation in recommending the Escape Hunt Experience to any corporate business that wants to improve problem solving and teamwork in their organisation its great value with even better outcomes…” – Glenn Andrews, Sales & Marketing Director Asia, Site Minder, Asia.
