About
Escapables: Teambuilding Escapes brings the worldwide craze of live escapes to your school or event. Room escapes began with the 90's point-and-click adventure PC games that focused on searching and puzzle solving. A live escape puts you inside the game with a team to physically participate in the story. This activity, besides being great entertainment, is designed to get a group focused on leadership and team building as they work together using the available tools combined with logic to escape the room in a set period of time. For those groups that don't solve the puzzle in time, they still get out of the room to take a group pic and the post-game talk begins on where they could have worked together better to accomplish the mission. The groups that do get out in time get bragging rights and a picture.

"Thanks for having me and my friends! We all agreed it was one of the best escape room experiences we've had, very smartly conceived, and a ton of action packed into a short amount of time." –Angela

BOOKING NOW: The Philosopher

campus-escapes-philosopher Our debut room at Escapables puts you in the office of a Philosophy professor where everything isn’t quite what it seems. Dr. Allister Longbottom is well-respected on campus; more out of fear than anything. He’s committed to proving that Philosophy is the loftiest field of study, and treats it with the utmost seriousness. Any sort of prank or joke at his expense would certainly earn the prankster a failing grade — not to mention Dr. Longbottom’s determined attempts to sabotage their future career prospects (yes, he’d go that far). The final project for his Intro to Philosophy class is a major wash-out point for the majority of the class. Your group has labored over this assignment for weeks, but the one member tasked with submitting it has made a disastrous mistake: an early draft of the project spreadsheet was accidentally attached, and every quote, from Plato to Kierkegaard, is replaced with the filler text “Dr. Very Long Bottoms” repeated over and over. Everyone had a good laugh at the time, but nobody wants Dr. Longbottom to get the last (very maniacal) laugh. If there’s anything lucky about this situation, it’s that your group has managed to solicit the aid of a helpful Grad Assistant who would hate to see yet another group of bright-eyed students crushed under Longbottom’s thumb. Your GA offers to let you all into Dr. Longbottom’s office, overseeing your attempts to gain access to his computer and delete the offending file. You’ve only got 25 minutes before he’s back for office hours — his angriest time of the day. Can you do it?

NEW FOR FALL 2016: The Mystery of Mount Olympus

Our newest Escape Room will feature Greek Mythology as you assume the characters of the 12 gods on Mount Olympus to solve a mystery and save the mortal world. Are you more of a Zeus or a Demeter? Aphrodite or Dionysus? The gods who play well together will surely win. This room will be available for bookings starting August 2016.
Logistics
One fun twist on our room is that an actor is in the room with the team the whole time and is part of the story. The actor will lead the group in and start the time, as well as do the wrap-up after the game is over. Teams can be comprised of 2 – 12 people and the game runs in 30 minute increments. At the conclusion of each game, there is a 10-minute break while the team that has just completed the challenge, takes team pictures and the room is reset for the next team. Our standard package runs the room for 4 hours and 5 minutes and allows up to 84 people to play. Additional hours can be added for longer events and more teams, as can a second copy of the room to allow two teams to play at one time which can then accommodate up to 168 people in the standard time frame. We can also offer solo games or less games depending on your needs. As an additional bonus, one of our leadership experts can provide a wrap up with each team identifying the team’s strengths and weaknesses and opportunities to improve group communication.
Tech
We will discuss with you in advance the specifics of the space that you have available and workarounds can generally be found, but the basic tech is as follows:
  • A room that is a minimum of 15' x 15'
    • The room must contain a door that can be closed
    • If the room has windows, they must be covered to block out light
    • The ability to turn the lights off and on in the room
    • The room must be cleared out of any furniture, objects, wall hangings, etc and preferably has blank walls
    • For spaces that are much larger than requested, additional walls will be provided by Escapables to reduce the room size
  • A desk that has been emptied out completely (if there are no spare desks, we can discuss workarounds)
  • A chair (desk style chair preferred)
  • Two (2) 6’ or 8’ tables or pieces of furniture about that size that provide a surface and are emptied out
  • Access to electricity in the room and two extension cords
  • A small space outside of the room for team pictures
  • If you have any additional small furniture pieces to put in the room, those are welcome, but not necessary. Examples would include, filing cabinet, side table, credenza, additional chair, bookcase.
For Southern California events, tech will be reduced as we will travel with almost everything we need.
