Team building has evolved over the last two years. One of the post-COVID trends for team building is to hold small group corporate team-building events. Rather than flying everyone in for a large event or encouraging overnight regional gatherings, we're seeing companies get together with smaller groups. It might be a small department or a small team of 10-12 people. There's a focus on rebuilding workplace culture and building stronger bonds between people working in small groups. If the company practices hybrid work, many people haven't seen each other in the office lately, or if they were hired while the office was closed, they might never have met work colleagues in person. We're here to help with your St. Charles corporate team building needs at Mastermind Room Escape.
The Benefits of a Corporate Team Building Escape Room Experience
Escape rooms offer a unique small corporate group team building experience. Everyone enters the same escape room together and answers clues and puzzle questions together. The benefits include:
- Always fun, never forced
- Build out-of-the box problem solving skills
- Uniquely interactive (no cell phones!)
- Ideal for different ages, interests, and abilities
- Conference rooms available

4 Reasons Escape Rooms are an Ideal St. Charles Corporate Team Building Experience for Small Groups
#1 All Ages Activity
Escape rooms are for everyone in your office. If your office is anything like the typical office these days, you have people in their 20s and people in their 70s, and everyone in between.
It can be difficult to find a team building experience that unites, rather than reinforces, who's young and who's old, and who's delightfully middle-aged. But throw everyone in a room together with a theme and a bunch of hands-on puzzles to solve, and everyone tends to have fun.
#2 Physical Abilities
At Mastermind Room Escape we recognize that people have different physical abilities. We know the physical abilities within your office probably vary greatly and believe it shouldn't stop you from having a unique and fun team building. We've designed our escape rooms to accommodate different physical abilities.
We provide a unique team building experience because escaping the room is not a physical feat. Walkers, crutches, wheelchairs, and even just a chair or chairs for sitting can be accommodated in our escape rooms. You can feel free to let us know ahead of time and we will have the room set up with your special requests. Or, just let us know when you arrive and we'll help you get set up before the timer starts. Either way, you can look forward to the puzzles requiring teamwork from everyone.
#3 Escaping Requires Everyone
Entering an escape room is like entering a space with a lot of moving parts (figuratively speaking and sometimes in reality). There are a series of puzzles that must be solved in order to escape. No one person can solve all the puzzles. No one person can sit back and just watch.
Escape rooms really bring out the best in people. Each room is designed to get your heart pumping so you escape within about an hour.
Solving puzzles requires focus and effort. The groups that have the most fun make sure everyone is included in escaping and depend on each other along the way.
#4 No Cell Phones Allowed
We know it's amazing that you can find just about any fact or solution at the touch of a button. We also know that it's fun to figure things out as a team, even when it's difficult.
Mastermind has escape rooms that range from easy to difficult. No matter what - no cell phones are allowed! That's right; cell phone use is considered cheating. Even though some of our rooms are rated difficult, and not everyone escapes, we don't allow any googling or texting while inside the room.
