THE QUESTION – “What can we do without leaving our conference room?”

You don’t need to travel far to enjoy a great team building experience. For many corporate groups, they don’t have the time to transport their team to an off-site location.

This was the case for an operations team from Coca-Cola. The group was planning their quarterly summit, and wanted a fun celebration activity to kick off their day of meetings.

The only catch? They didn’t want to leave the conference room to do it.


THE ANSWER – “Escape Room: Jewel Heist”

The group from Coca-Cola decided Escape Room: Jewel Heist would be the perfect solution.

On the day of the event, employees were surprised to discover their meeting room had been transformed into a real “escape room” experience. Their goal was to find all the hidden clues in the room, solve the puzzles, and recover the stolen jewels before time ran out.

In the end, the group managed to crack the final code with 33 minutes to spare, proving they could collaborate and communicate, even in a time-pressure situation!

Highlights from the activity include:

  • The 20 Coca-Cola employees all worked together and collaborated as one big group.
  • They only needed two of their three hints, making good use of their resource management.
  • The team also practiced effective time management skills, always keeping an eye on the clock.
  • Different employees stepped up to solve different puzzles in the room, and the group was very effective at listening and communicating to solve them quickly.
  • Everyone ended up having a great time – and they never even had to leave the conference room!
