Have any of you ever tried this? My boss just signed us up for one and while I normally blow off "teambuilding events" I think this sounds like fun.

https://breakoutgames.com/escape-rooms/

I love puzzles and figuring stuff out based on clues (hell, it's what I do for a living) so this seems like a blast to me. I know these things are really getting quite popular so I'm curious if any of you have been to one.

Not yet, except in some old time video games.

Our event is scheduled for September.  We're going to vote Monday on the scenario for it.  I'll let you know how it is.  It sounds like a blast to me.

Yeah, same here. But my favorite part of the Zelda games was figuring out how to get into and out of secret rooms.

My team voted today and we're doing this scenario:

Quote :
While vacationing on a tropical island, you awake to the sounds of a dormant volcano rumbling to life. The only people still on the island, you and your team are left to your own devices and must work together to discover the keys to safety before the lava reaches shore. Bring your inner explorer out to play for this adrenaline-packed adventure.

I have done two of these before with some friends. They are actually a lot of fun. Some of the puzzles are quite difficult and require a lot of teamwork.
