Why our virtual escape room could be just the thing to improve your team building
Looking for something engaging, yet original for your team? Are your colleagues spread on the far corners of the world? (or even the other side of London). Is a team-building event the stuff of the marketing department dreams, yet never materialised?
If so, then a virtual escape room could be just the answer to your team building dilemmas.
The way a business communicates with its team has changed. Thanks to the increase in home working and improved technology, team members no longer have to live near their place of work. Companies have expanded and relocated to places they previously couldn’t consider. Many teams work flexibly both in the office and at home.
Zoom, Teams and Skype have helped the communication thrive internally – but how do you manage to keep your remote team motivated and driven?
Team social events are a fantastic way to keep morale high and to celebrate success. Finding an experience that encourages team bonding and, whilst at the same time motivating and fun, is no easy task. Or at least it wasn’t – here’s where an online escape room could help.
Always a popular choice for office parties, large groups and team bonding activities, immersive escape rooms are busy gaining popularity in the digital world. Teams can play together whilst being virtually apart – with the time difference or distance being no barrier to playing.
What is a virtual escape room?
Virtual escape rooms are an online version of the immersive escape rooms we offer at Fox in a Box London. Teams have to work together to embark on a treasure hunt, cracking codes and escaping the room – only this time it is virtual!
You can play from anywhere in the world, connecting with colleagues or fellow escape room fans. Guiding your avatar through the physical elements of the game, you are in a secure virtual event, solving clues of varying difficulty with exceptional graphics – totally immersed in the storyline and showcasing your problem-solving skills. All you need is a laptop and a stable internet connection. That and the ability to escape….
Virtual escape rooms help a corporate team thrive – everyone works towards a common goal, improving their communication and sharing in their successes. Virtual escape rooms can boost skills in communication, project management and problem-solving – your team will strengthen relationships and boost their confidence in each other.

Don’t just take our word for it…see what our virtual gamers have to say.
“Virtual Bunker is Fox in a Box London’s adaptation of their real life escape room of the same name, and they adapt the game for an online audience in a really creative way! For starters, they use both a live actor via Zoom and a digital online interface (Telescape) to collect, log and examine various areas of the room up close…it’s that special touch from the games masters, and playing with a great team that makes an experience a good one, so if you are reading this and thinking about booking this game – do it!”
THE ESCAPE ROOMER
Fox in a Box Virtual Bunker works well on line, mainly due to Alex the host who keeps in character throughout and conveys a real sense of urgency and panic through to the players. This comes across so well that is infectious and our team found themselves also feeling the urgency which invests the players more into the game”
ESCAPE THE REVIEW
Absolutely loved the experience! The acting, the puzzles. It was truly great to go through this experience as a team and I would highly recommend it. Also very surprised with the engagement and ability to interact in a virtual environment as I always felt like escape rooms had to be in person. Pleasantly surprised!”
