A Fool-Proof Guide to Getting that Escape Room Trip for your Team!

Christmas is right around the corner, and I’m sure someone in your office is currently agonising over the best way to navigate the whole “Office Christmas Party” situation this year. Heck, it might even be you. If so… I don’t envy you.

Whether the burden of office party-planning falls on your shoulders or not, however, you’re in the right place. Here, I’ve written a clear, tried-and-tested method for you to use in your workplace, in order to steer that conversation towards escape rooms.

Because who wouldn’t want a workplace night out to Lucardo this Christmas? Let's go:

Start Dropping Hints Early

Your event may be months away, but it’s never too early to start subliminally letting them know that an escape room trip is what you want.

Perhaps you could “accidentally” leave your browser logged into the Lucardo homepage in the office, or mention aloud that you know a guy who went to an escape room recently and loved it. If you pop in to Lucardo we’ll happily let you have some flyers you can randomly leave lying around – they’re sure to get the message eventually.

Talk Loudly About the Benefits of Escape Rooms…

…and be sure to throw some good, corporate jargon in there while you’re at it.

Something like this:

“Escape rooms offer a fabulous opportunity to bring staff together in a fun, skill-testing, team-building, ice-breaking activity. Nobody would be left out, and we’d all be singing from the same hymn sheet in no time. And, with a booking process as streamlined as Lucardo’s, you know you’re gonna get bang for your buck and therefore a win-win situation all-round. No brainer.”

Throw in something about “synergy” and maybe a couple of puns about “unlocking workplace harmony” and I’m sure they’ll get the message eventually. You got this!

Let Them Know that Lucardo will cater for everyone

Small, private outing? Large-scale gathering? Anything in-between?
