'Teamwork makes the dreamwork', is one of Lorna’s favourite mantras. Here at Beyond Breakout, we are a small, (but perfectly formed) team and after the last 18 months we realise that our favourite mantra has become more important than ever. Now that life is returning to ‘normal’ and people are returning to the workplace, companies are thinking of ways to build team morale and improve relationships. If you have already played an escape room, then you will know how much fun they are, (and here, FUN, is the centre of everything we do!) But did you know, escape rooms are the perfect team building activity? If you're looking for a novel team-building activity that's effective and fun, an escape room could be the answer, and here are 5 reasons why.
The sun has got his hat on, and we are extremely excited here at Beyond Breakout! Not because it is the start of the school summer holidays, but because we are launching our new outdoor escape game - Magic Portal. If trying to find something that everyone will enjoy sends you into a cold sweat, then look no further, as Magic Portal is suitable from ages 10 to 100!
Some weeks are better than others, and for us, this week has been purely and simply, fabulous! We have been taking our outdoor escape room experience - Magic Portal - to local schools, where we have been working with children from the age of 9 up to 17. The children worked in teams, and had 2 hours to explore their local area following the route we had plotted, solving puzzles in order to close the Magic Portal in the fastest time possible.
When people come to play our latest escape room, The Mask, we ask our teams to take a seat by our Llama.
This is often met with great amusement, followed by the question, why a Llama? (Not a real one I hasten to add!) This is because, The Mask, is set during the Ancient Inca period, we learned a lot about the Incas as we were designing the room, and how highly they regarded the Llama as a domestic animal.
I am sure none of you have forgotten, but Sunday 20th June is Father’s Day. It can sometimes be difficult to think of a gift to show your dad how much he means to you, because let us be entirely honest, he has you - the greatest gift of all! So, we thought one of the best gifts you could give to your dad, is your time, so here are 5 ideas of spending quality time with your dad.
It may only seem like five minutes since the children were on their Easter holidays, but the last 7 weeks have flown by and we now have a half term holiday looming before us. But this holiday is different.
After what feels like a very long winter in lockdown, the restrictions are easing and we can explore the beautiful area we live, and spend valuable time with our friends and family, and have some fun! Here at Beyond Breakout, fun is our middle name (not really, but you get the gist!) so we thought we would compile a list of 10 things you could do with your family this half term....
