The pop-up escape experience with a deadly difference...

Our unique new Sleuth Room takes the puzzle filled format of an escape room, and adds our very own brand of murder mystery to create a dynamic team building activity

If you’ve thought about using an escape room for team building but are not quite sure how it works (or don’t want to have to take the whole team out of the office for the day) then read on…

The Sleuth Room can be set up in any empty meeting room; we can create a vintage 1930’s themed crime scene in around 30 minutes on site.  As the Sleuth Room runs with 6 people at a time and takes around 60 minutes, it means you can stagger the activity throughout the day with little disruption (and build up the competition between each team; results are not revealed until the end of the day!).

The teams are tasked with finding out who the victim, suspects, and guilty party are by solving a series of puzzles and challenges in the room, all in 45 minutes.  Each suspect has their own motive, and they are all intertwined via various relationships and intrigue.  It’s up to the teams to find out as much information as possible!

Once their time is up, the teams must then use all the information they have discovered to solve the crime as completely as possible, and the winning team will be revealed at the end…

Character Facilitation

  • Betty Didditt Facilitator Team Building

    Teams are introduced to the activity by our character Chief Inspector Betty Diddit.  She oversees the whole experience with an eagle eye, while being on hand to give some tips and hints when needed.  She’s the one who will be marking you so it’s wise to listen to her advice!

Unique Story and Marking

  • null

    Unlike other similar activities, our Sleuth Room is based around a rich and detailed murder mystery story, with a series of puzzles, cryptic clues and red herrings.

    With a bespoke marking scheme, points are awarded (or deducted) for discovering the correct information, and of course extra points are given for finishing in the quickest time.

Positive outcomes

  • null

    The team members have the instant gratification of finding out these results on the day, while managers can expect to receive a follow up report the following day, detailing our facilitator’s observations on individuals and teams as a whole.  We also offer a feedback analysis report based on the team’s comments on the day.
