Part escape room, part amazing race, Hostage is lateral thinking challenge where your team works as one to complete a common objective: locate the hostage.

A simple note marked ‘Play Me’ links to a video ransom message from the kidnappers.

Your team experience has just begun.

Hostage is a live escape experience where teams race the clock to complete one common objective: locate the hostage.

We’ve taken a hostage from your company and it’s now up to your team to follow the clues to locate within the allocated time.

The ‘hostage’ is typically someone in your business that is OK with being handcuffed in a basement.  We even edit some custom ransom videos featuring your hostage.

For 1.5 hours teams embark on a search for 6 mystery briefcases that contain seemingly random items. Link the items, crack the clues and find every briefcase.

Unlike many team experiences the group doesn’t split up.  It’s up to each group to determine how and when they separate to work on different tasks and work as a high performing team.

Clear communication, time management and effective delegation is essential for success in Hostage.

This team building experience takes place indoors and outdoors and is suitable for all ages and fitness levels.

Solve complex clues, locate and utilise mystery items, delegate tasks and manage your time effectively.

Find the briefcases.  Complete the demands. Free the hostage.
