Virtual Team/Group Activites
ETSU Campus Recreation - Outdoor Adventure
Virtual Escape Rooms
Campus Recreation Outdoor Adventure is offering Virtual Escape Room teambuilding programs to ETSU students, staff, and faculty. These programs offer a great adventure while giving students the opportunity to display leadership qualities.
The one-hour programs are facilitated by team building facilitators from Outdoor Adventure staff and are conducted via Zoom. These virtual escape rooms are designed to help your team explore methods of working together effectively and efficiently while collaborating to find clues, solve puzzles, and decode riddles. Each player's knowledge is valuable and participation is key!
Ideal group size is 6 – 8 players. Additional players will be accommodated via break out rooms.
We are currently offering three different virtual escape room experiences:
Get Me Home If You Can
Oh no! Your 1968 weekend adventure has turned to disaster. After spending a lovely 3 days in Oregon, you want nothing more than to be home... however, it seems that the airline has different plans. Dressed in your best garb, you embark on an adventure just to get yourself home. Can you get there while the happy vacation memories are still fresh?
San Francisco is famous for the cable cars. However, there are many other ways the people and visitors of San Francisco get around. Let's see if your team can explore all the transportation options within 45 minutes. Good Luck.
You have entered the Park only to find that it is not just creepy, but haunted as well. Once you step inside, the only way out is to work your way through the rides, graveyard and other puzzles to get to the exit and Breakout of the Haunted Park.

Each participant would need an internet connection and the Zoom app on their mobile device or computer.
