Disney Jumps on the Escape Room Trend

One of today’s hottest team-building activities is escape room challenges. If you aren’t familiar, in escape room challenges, teams are locked in a room and cannot get out without solving a number of hidden clues that ultimately reveal where the room key is. The challenge is usually timed and larger teams usually are split in two and compete against each other.

My company did one of these escape room challenges in Boston last summer and it was, by far, the best team-building activity I have been involved with in my career.

Disney Meetings, the corporate meeting arm of the Walt Disney Company, has jumped on the escape room trend with “The Escape Challenge.” Disney’s take on the escape room includes amazing room and prop design and a multi-room element.

By the looks of the video below, Disney has taken a great idea and stepped it up about 10 notches in a way only Disney can.

Have a look…

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 7 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.Other interests include Disney, Sports, 80's Nostalgia, LEGO, Star Wars and Tech Gadgets.
