Beat the Box

An escape style team building activity whereby teams combine their skills to develop creative solutions to Beat the Box!


Crack the Codes & Beat the Box before time runs out!

What is Beat the Box? 

A team building exercise that begins with a video message in which a chilling voice challenges delegates to a game. Each team is given an aluminium box in which they must use to solve different puzzles and mysteries, giving them a specific code. In order for the entire group to win the game, they must enter their code into the electronic combination lock before the countdown is over.

There are four intriguing cases in each aluminium box which are protected by strong combination locks. These contain codes and mysteries that teams must solve to progress. Once they reach the final case delegates find letters. If they put all of the letters in the right order, a predefined slogan will be shown and the code revealed – the countdown stops and the game is over.

Intensity is high in this escape room style team challenge and at times teams doubt their ability to succeed. However, belief in their own abilities helps them to solve the most hopeless of situations. Beat the Box isn’t easy but this only makes success much more sweet and valuable.

How can it help your team?

One of the most important aspects of this team building activity is that participants must combine their efforts and skills to create a solution. What makes this a perfect mix of competition and collaboration is that at the end teams need to cooperate towards a common goal, crack the codes and finally Beat the Box.

Key Learning Outcomes: 

  • Collaborative problem-solving 
  • Thinking outside the box
  • Communication skills
  • Meeting deadlines
