How Many People Can an Escape Room Hold?

How Many People Can an Escape Room Hold?

Team building skills are important, not only in businesses, but in daily life as well. If you are looking to grow as a team, group of friends, or family, you might want to put those problem solving skills to the test. Create your first team building event at EscapeWorks Denver by attempting to unlock one of their themed escape rooms!

Book Your Adventure!

What Is an Escape Room?

An escape room is in essence a puzzle that needs to be solved in order to escape.  The rooms are designed for small to large groups of people that enjoy adventure and new experiences. Each room includes a number of clues and ciphers that need to be solved. Every solved clue will bring you one step closer to escaping the room and leaving our facilities victorious. To learn more about the rooms at EscapeWorks and absorb tips on how to effectively work as a group to escape, read our latest blog post “No Escaping the Fun.”

An escape room wouldn’t be complete without a time limit. Your group will have one hour to escape from the room to add to the challenge.

How Many People Can Be Involved in an Escape Room?

A commonly asked question is “how many people can you bring to aid in your escape?” At EscapeWorks, our rooms are strategically designed for as few as two participants, but can also hold larger teams of twelve. The ideal group size is six or more people to allow for collaboration. The more people in the room, the larger the variety of different skill sets there are to solve the hidden clues. While larger groups provide more minds working together simultaneously, small groups have been able to complete escape challenges effectively as well. Do you already have a group in mind? Escape rooms are great for family reunions, coworker bonding, and more. Learning to work together and listen to the input of all is a skill that takes time to flourish.

What Themes Are Available?

Escapeworks Denver has a themed escape room to fit any and every group’s interests.

  • Egyptian Tomb
  • The Big Game
  • Casino Heist
  • Outbreak
  • Beyond the Flower Shop

If you are searching for a challenging team building activity, look no further than EscapeWorks Denver. Contact us today to book or learn more about our escape rooms. On top of the satisfaction of escaping the room of your choice, if your team leaves victorious, everyone will receive a T-shirt to commemorate your team’s feat.

  • review rating 5  Super fun night at EscapeWorks Denver in The Christmas Story room. Lot's of great details from the movie make this a really fun puzzle to solve! Chloe did a very nice job providing the set-up instructions and threw out just enough clues to keep us on track. Great holiday fun!

    review rating 5  The 1920’s Speakeasy was a ton of fun! I did this with my coworkers and it was a great team bonding experience that was just challenging enough. Our Escape Room Host, Sierra, was fantastic and made the experience that much better!

  • review rating 5  I rented beyond the flower shop room for my wedding party. We had a blast! The puzzles were challenging but fun. There was plenty of room for everyone to work on different puzzles at the same time. We got out with 2 minutes to spare. Shout out to Trace, he did a great job at only giving us hints when we needed it. I don't like it when they're too generous with the hints, takes the challenge out of the experience. This was my third escape room in Denver and I've used a different company each time. I would definitely come back here to try a different room.

  • review rating 5  Lana and Sierra were great! We had a couple of people late and they made sure we all still had a great experience. The Egyptian room was great with thoughtful clues and was just the right difficulty for our group!

    review rating 5  This place is A TON OF FUN! It was my first time doing a live escape room and I will definitely be doing many more because of the experience that I had here. Devon and Trace were our hosts and I absolutely love the presentation and humor that they brought to the experience. It was myself and one other person in one of the easier rooms and we just barely made it out in time. It was a great challenge and a blast of a time. I would HIGHLY recommend this place if you are looking for a fun challenge with friends or some bonding time with a significant other. 10 out of 10 for sure! Thanks gang! Keep up the good work!

    review rating 5  EscapeWorks Denver was a great team building event. We did Outbreak and it was very challenging for the entire group. Amelia and Savannah were great setting up the room and explaining our mission. Overall a fantastic experience and highly recommended.

  • review rating 5  We did the Outbreak escape room and it was so much fun!! The room was very interactive and detailed and although the puzzles were tricky we got so close to finishing the room. Taylor was a great game master throughout the process especially since it was our first escape room. We will definitely do more! They also provide safe places for personal belongings.

  • review rating 5  Troy and Tommy Bohan with my son Paul Garcia-Lance and myself had the best of times trying to get out of the Egyptian tomb. We were seconds away but fell short of solving the mystery and we’re buried alive. Thank you so much for an enjoyable evening and a special shout out to Taylor and Sierra who moderated our adventure ! We have to return for our group picture and another great adventure!

    review rating 5  Had a great work team retreat activity here. Loved the puzzles and escaping the "flower shop" (aka: 1920s speakeasy). I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a team building exercise or just wanting to have fun.

  • review rating 5  “You’ll shoot your eye out!” We did A Christmas Story and it was SO fun- so many layers, different types of puzzles, challenging but never got totally stuck. Selena was a great guide, clearly super knowledgeable about the room, gave great hints and was very witty, completely made the experience for us.

    review rating 5  My 13 yr. old son wanted to do this and I’m so glad we did. This was a fun activity that the whole family participated in with no electronics involved. Our teamwork and efforts (plus a lot of help from Devon and Taylor) helped to solve the puzzle and get us out of the room. Devon and Taylor were wonderful hosts and explained everything perfectly. We’ll definitely return for another family adventure.

    review rating 5  One clue away from solving it all but still super fun. What a great puzzle and team building opportunity! Huge shout out to Juan- his help, humor, and support at EscapeWorks really made the night great. Thanks so much again!

  • review rating 5  My fiancee and I were vacationing in Denver and tried out the Egyptian Tomb with another group of 4. We escaped with 5 minutes to spare! Very good room layout and good props. Puzzles were challenging and rewarding once solved. I was not a huge fan of how they did the hints... usually you have 3 hints or whatever and you ask for a hint when you get stuck, instead they give you hints when they think you need it. Otherwise, our game master, Trace, was very helpful and personable. Overall, very satisfied with our experience!

  • review rating 5  We completed a team event here where we split into teams and competed to finish first. Both rooms had amazing puzzles and it was really fun. I think our company team thoroughly enjoyed both rooms. We completed The Egyptian Tomb and the Casino but one of our members in the casino team can't seem to stop mumbling numbers and math equations.

    review rating 5  We had so much fun at the Casino Heist room today! Savannah was amazing. The team has created difficult challenges and drop hints that are just enough to move you forward. We can't wait to go back and try another room!
