Team Building & Corporate Activities in Cumbria at Lakes Escapes



Are you looking for a corporate team building activity that is different to the usual track race days, zip wires and go karting? Then look no further than Lakes Escapes for a fun team building game that has grown increasingly popular. We are the first physical rooms in West Cumbria and the first non hosted online game based on a physical room in the UK. We are ready and waiting to give your employees an experience that will not only have them working together but enjoying themselves at the same time.

What is an Escape Game?

Escape team building activities involve a team of friends or colleagues trying to complete a themed room by solving various puzzles, riddles and all sorts of hints and codes. Each game has a different objective to achieve.

Here at Lakes Escapes, we enable businesses to experience this new corporate team building activity in a choice of ways. Our physical escape games operate in the following manner:

  • Organisation of teams between 2-40 people. Groups over 6 will be divided between our 6 games.
  • The teams are then placed in a themed room.
  • Teams have 60 minutes to complete the game objective and must work together to solve challenges, unravel mysteries and detect clues.

Our online experiences operate in the following manner:

  • Organisation of teams between 2-6 people and any number of games can be played at once so no limits on players.
  • The teams are able to play the same game at the same time or choose a different theme.
  • Teams have 72 hours to complete the game objective and can play in multiple sessions if required.
  • All players have full control of their own movements and actions whilst others are able to see mouse pointers and know what their team mates are doing.

Although a video call isn’t required to play our online games you are able to set up one separate to the game so players can communicate verbally throughout their experience if this is something you desire.

During the escape game, colleagues will have to use their mental abilities and observational skills collectively as they attempt to withstand the intensity and pressure as time ticks away!

How will the Escape Team Building Game benefit your team?

  • The conditions of the escape game encourage colleagues to interact with one another and express themselves in a way in which they are less likely to in the workplace.
  • Colleagues will get to know one another a lot better as they work together to complete the room.
  • This kind of team building activity allows colleagues to think creatively whilst facing the challenges involved in an escape room.
  • This fun team building activity brings colleagues closer together and upon completion, generates a sense of achievement amongst teams.
