Our Fort Collins escape rooms provide an incredible opportunity for your corporate team to get outside the normal and have fun. Not only is this a great activity that everyone can enjoy, but it’s also the perfect way to grow as a team. Your team will appreciate an escape puzzle much more than a typical, awkward teambuilding game to break the ice. Not to mention that our escape rooms are puzzles at a whole new level, with high-tech features like moving automation, sensors, and other items less common in generic escape rooms.
So why are our Fort Collins escape rooms perfect for team building? Here are five reasons:
Escape Rooms Can Highlight the Strengths in Your Team
Perhaps you have new members on the corporate team that you do not know very well. Or, maybe you’ve all worked together for a long time. Whatever the case is for your group, an escape room is an excellent way to learn about the strengths and weaknesses of each team member. Each member may shine in a different area of skills or characteristics.
Some of the strengths you may see include strength in leadership, time management, diligent focus, perseverance under pressure and hardship, determination to solve problems, and the ability to handle stress. Some may be better at taking charge while others know how to offer critical support in other ways. You might find that certain individuals handle conflict better than others and others have a strong point in problem-solving. Therefore, an escape room can help you better understand how each of your team members can each contribute their strengths for success.
Growth in Communication
We all know communication is key to the health of any relationship, and your corporate team is no exception. Our Fort Collins escape rooms can help your team learn to communicate beyond their typical phone calls and emails in the office. Members will be encouraged to listen to one another, learn how to express their ideas effectively, and learn how to talk through solving problems together. Not only are they communicating in person, but they are also learning how to communicate under the pressure of a deadline.
Your Team Grows in Setting Common Goals
Puzzle rooms are perfect for teambuilding because your group learns how to work together to set common goals and meet them. Having a common objective bonds people together in a unique way. To succeed, your corporate team has to agree on what the end goals are and then meet them under the pressure of a time limit.
Escape Rooms Encourage Critical Thinking and Logic
Critical thinking and logic, I’m sure we could agree that these two things will be invaluable in the workplace. As your team works to escape the room, they’re learning how to reason through clues and think through problems. Each team member can contribute and can bring to the table something others had not considered. A teambuilding activity like this encourages each person to remain engaged and focused.
Problem Solving Together Boosts Morale
There’s something about tackling a problem and solving it together that boosts our morale not just as individuals but also as a team. Being able to solve an escape room puzzle can help boost your team’s confidence in their ability to work together and each member’s ability to contribute value. Your team can walk away feeling a greater motivation and readiness to be productive together at the office.
That’s just a taste of why our puzzle rooms can be the perfect place for team building in Fort Collins. Escape rooms boost your team in creativity, communication, problems solving, and so much more. Is Plato quote is a great example of why an escape room is a great way to get to know your team: “You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than a year of conversation.”

No Escape From Love
Escape room Valentines Day adventures present some great fun during the month of love! Use our promotion ESCAPE_4_LOVE to receive 10% off your February 2018 escape experience. Whether you plan your escapade with friends, family or your significant other, our rooms are sure to bring everyone closer.
The origins of Valentine’s Day go back to St. Valentinus, an early Christian imprisoned under the Roman empire. Before his execution on February 14th, legend has it that he miraculously healed the daughter of his jailer, and left her a farewell letter signed “Your Valentine.” This poignant epithet has become the predecessor for the modern Valentine card.¹
At ConTRAPtions, no one will imprison you per se (we don’t actually lock you in a room), but you might have to outwit death and/or arrest! You’ll have to rally your loved ones for some teamwork in order to pull it off. Escape rooms are a great way to spend time with family. Even though family members are always the best at pushing our buttons, just remember, ‘Love is patient, love is kind’ (1 Cor. 13:4). These are your people, so you can’t escape the love! Put your patience into practice, and don’t let the adrenaline get on your nerves. Just have a blast. (Not literally, although that might happen if your time runs out in Mafia Galley?
There is plenty of romance to be had in our escape rooms, too. We’ve been the date night activity of choice for countless couples, as well as the site of three different marriage proposals. What better way to spend time with your amore than stealing a diamond or cheating death!
If there wasn’t enough to love already, ConTRAPtions is a local Fort Collins born and bred business. We are not a franchise or chain, so in the spirit of #LoveFortCollins, we invite you to spend Valentines Day 2018 locally, right here in our beautiful city. We hope you’ll share it with us! Book your escape room Valentines adventure here, and don’t forget to use the promo code!
