ESCAPE THE CASE - What is it?

“You may have escaped a room… but have your teams Escaped The Case?”

Venture Up’s original Escape Game series — “Escape the Case” — is the next generation in team building events for conference groups of 35 to 500 people. A reverse escape game for corporate meetings, it’s not a matter of getting out of a room, but how to break into a mysterious metal case by cracking codes and solving a variety of integrated challenges. It is a portable escape room experience for groups of all sizes.

These elaborately themed cases and high-tech challenges include clues, alarms, music, codes, video, social media, problem solving, blue tooth locks… directional locks… alphabetical,… and numerical locks.

Teams are put to the test, as box after box of engaging challenges force your team(s) to work together to “break in” before the time runs out. This activity is geared for a 1.5 – 2.5 hours and teams of 8 – 12 people each.

The final twist of these events occur when all teams must work together, combining codes to open the final series of Cases. This collaboration underscores the whole group is actually one big team, more powerful together, more innovative together and ultimately Better Together
