Escape Rooms

The evenings of the 20th & 27th of February saw the staff and partners of Gibbons take on the Lakes Escape Rooms for an evening of team building and problem solving. The staff from across 3 of our offices (Workington, Maryport & Whitehaven) put it all on the line to be the best escapists at Gibbons. With the competition fierce and the teams decided the doors were locked leaving the teams to fend for themselves.
After a brief introduction from the lovely staff at the Lakes Escape Rooms and a short introduction as to what exactly each of the teams were trying to work towards an hour was placed on the clock for each of the 6 teams that participated. What followed was an hour of carnage while the staff worked their way through the challenges in order to reach the end goal. The hour started with a rush to find as many clues in the room as possible before the teams started to work through the various challenges to progress to the next which was usually a lock of some description! The challenges were equally tough and rewarding with obviously the stand out highlight being actually escaping with the prestige and bragging rights that followed. Well at least this was the highlight for 5 of the teams as the team comprised of the staff from Maryport office could not escape their fate at the hands of Dr Frankenstein’s Monster.
In what was an evening of challenge and excitement the staff then moved on from the escape rooms to the local restaurant Caspian for a spot of food to round off the evening and discuss the wild hour that had just occurred with the various teams bragging about who escaped first and who led the charge within each team.
