Contact us to schedule weekday & weeknight games!

Whether you’re looking for a formal team building event or just a way to treat employees to a well-deserved break, consider Escape This for a true, out-of-the-box experience. We have five escape games to choose from and can accommodate everything from small group outings to large custom events. (See more details below!)


Use the escape game experience as a way to challenge your team and test their collaboration and communication skills. We can also arrange a post-game debrief for the group to assess performance, go through lessons learned and enjoy some laughs along the way.


Treat your employees to an out-of-the-ordinary escape from the office. Here are some ideas to get you thinking...
The Lunch Break{out} Plan an escape game either before or after your typical lunch outing. Your team will be full of food and team building fun! 
The Happy Hour Warm Up There’ll be plenty to talk about over cocktails when you start your evening with an Escape This experience.
The Appreciation Lock-Up Nothing says “job well done” better than locking up your colleagues...for fun, of course!


Whether you’re a small department or a whole office wanting to plan a special event, we can help you make it happen. We bring 20+ years of event planning expertise to the table to help you with planning, logistics, catering and customization ideas to drive home your event's goals.

We offer special rates during weekdays and can book outside of our normal game schedule (8 person minimum). With five escape games, we can have up to 50 people playing at one time. And for larger events, we run multiple shifts of games and coordinate with restaurant partners to create a unique and memorable event. Get in touch and let's start planning an experience for your group!

    We did this as a work bonding for our team of 6 and it was so much fun. If you're into problem-solving and unraveling mysteries, this is up your alley. We did the Lost Friday Night option which had us giggling the whole time. Renee did a great job of giving us feedback on our team dynamics and what she saw while we solved the puzzles. If your office is thinking about a team building day - do this! It's something our whole department will be laughing about for the next several months.

    Overall the students had an excellent time. They felt more challenged than if they had just done a completed paper/pencil exam! I appreciated your working with us and accommodating our requests with your professionalism. It is definitely an activity that accomplished everything I had envisioned and wanted.  Thank you for an enjoyable time and experience - I will definitely recommend you to anyone inquiring!

    We had such a great time! I know I really appreciated the feedback you gave us on how we worked as a team. As one of the team leaders, it was very encouraging to hear from someone outside how well we work together.  We’ll definitely recommend this to others!

  • I’ve participated in escape rooms twice before (both with other outfits in Madison) but the experience with Escape This was by far the most fun and well-designed. I also really appreciate how they took the time to debrief the group and highlight some of our successes and failures—all in the context of team building. Their attention to detail and personal touch was incredibly professional.
  • Helen Brausen
    I took my team of seven to Escape This! Not only was it a great time, but Renee and Chris were friendly, organized, and helpful. I loved the feedback they provided to my team about what they observed about our interactions and teamwork during our hour in the room. I highly recommend Escape This!

    Escape This went above and beyond for our Controller Quarterly Management event. Both Renee and Chris made sure we had everything we needed to have a successful day at their facility. Their attention to detail was incredible. The team members here in the American Family Controller Division have not stopped talking about how much fun they had. This experience was everything we hoped for and more.

    We had a great time with this event, and we all felt we walked away with something we can use going forward. It is a great tool for teambuilding and certainly helped us to realize what are strengths are, and what we need to work on. Staff are still talking about it, we will have to do this again!

    Escape This was the best team building activity we have done in a long time! I saw fantastic communication between team members, great teamwork and strategic problem solving in a group environment…and best of all… I saw more “High 5’s” in an hour than I have ever seen with this team before!
