MISSION

Creature Room 2016

Your car broke down while on a detour in the middle of nowhere. You went to the closest house to use the phone. When you knocked on the door, it slowly opened in front of you. You stepped in to get out of the rain and call out for help. The door slammed shut behind you. Up on the wall it says “Supper” with a timer counting back 60 minutes. You don’t know what you are locked in here with, but you know you don’t want to be here at supper time.

WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT THE CHALLENGE

I brought my work group here and it was a great experience — very fun and gave different members of the team a chance to shine in a unique way not often found in the workplace. I wish we had spent more time afterwards debriefing the experience and looking at what each team member contributed — this was possible, but we just kind of disbanded quickly afterwards. Highly recommended for families, work teams, date nights, etc.

I was here for a bachelorette party and it was just the best of times! We were able to complete our mission with three minutes to spare! Challenging but not over the top, the staff was friendly and fun, I cannot wait to do this again!

Took our staff for an evening escape and enjoyed it so much that we took the whole family back a week later to try a different room. The host’s were very professional and fun. Will be back to try the other rooms.

Our group of five older women had never done anything like this so Nathan recommended starting with the Norwegian job. We really had no idea what to expect and were a little nervous. Nathan was our host and did an amazing job!

Kim M, TripAdvisor

Loved it. Could have used another 30 minutes but with a little help we made it out. Really helps to work together. Remember almost everything in that room is a clue. Think outside of the box. Super fun with a group.

I was a part of the team that played The Norwegian job game. It was a great experience where none of the team members knew each other, yet we worked as a team for those 60 mins and how our perceptions and thinking brought out the creativity in us to escape the game in last 24 seconds, was just amazing. I shared my experience with my office co-workers and my friends and they all are excited to go try it out as well.
Thanks for bringing this concept to Rochester, MN. I am planning to go for another game soon.
