Will you and your team survive this Arctic adventure?
Brand new for 2021, ‘Arctic Survival’ is a snow-packed virtual escape room adventure that will see you and your teams taking on an Arctic expedition like no other.
Midway through an arctic expedition, your team has become separated from your hiking guide. With a storm setting in and nightfall approaching, you’re forced to abandon your expedition in search of help. You must work together to solve cryptic clues scattered throughout the abandoned Arctic hut, and put your logical thinking and code-cracking skills to the test in order to kickstart the generator, call for help, and escape before the heavy snowfall and high winds leave you lost in the Arctic.
At the beginning of your Arctic Survival event, our remote Event Manager will set the scene with a tense virtual briefing, detailing key information as to why participants must escape. Teams will then be faced with a locked Arctic hut that they must virtually break out of before they run out of time. Using their own smartphone devices loaded with a gameplay app, and video conferencing software, participants will work their way through a myriad of clues by tapping on the objects throughout the hut.
Teams must progress through the three stages of Arctic Survival challenge as quickly as they can, while correctly completing questions and challenges as they go. Teams who employ a thoughtful strategy and manage their time carefully shall prevail.
The aim of the game is simple; solve the clues to start the generator, call for help and crack the code, all before you run out of time.
How does the activity work?
This virtual escape room team building activity is ‘app-based’ and is run using two pieces of software. The first is a gameplay app which each participant will need to download onto their smartphone or tablet. The second is Zoom (although we can use other platforms if required).
What do I need to do before the event?
Very little. Before your virtual escape room activity, we will send you a detailed ‘event information sheet’ with all of the information you and your teammates will need. This will include the confirmed date and time of your event, the name of your dedicated event host who will run your activity, and of course, the Zoom link that everyone will need to access the call. All you need to do is send this information sheet to all those taking part, – let us look after the rest!
What happens on the day of my event?
On the day itself, everyone will be welcomed to the event by your event host as soon as they join the Zoom call. Once everyone has arrived, your event host will explain exactly what will happen during your activity and answer any initial questions.
How many people will be in each team?
For this virtual escape room team building activity, we would recommend having around 5 people per team. Once your host has welcomed everyone and explained what will be happening during the activity, they will split the group into random teams and allocate each team a private ‘Zoom Room’ where they can discuss tactics, answers, and clues. This is also where teams will complete their challenge using the gameplay app.
How many hosts/facilitators will be running my event?
For this event, we will have one event host/facilitator for every 50 participants. They will remain on your Zoom call for the duration of your event to make sure everything runs smoothly and answer any questions participants may have.
What happens at the end of my event?
Towards the end of your event, your event host will bring all of the teams back into the main ‘Zoom Room’ where they will run through the results and declare the winners. Once the results are announced and the ‘wrap up’ has finished, your hosts will leave the Zoom call and end the session.
