Everything you need to know about the Break Out Challenge team building activity

Break out Team Challenge kicks off with inmates split into teams and developing a prison gang identity together with a back story.

Inmates will get into character with fake tattoos, bandanas and several props provided to set the theme for the event.

What happens during the Break Out Challenge team building activity?

Throughout a series of fun, mental and strategic challenges, teams will work together to decipher clues, bribe guards and steal a master key, following a standard “Dummy’s Guide” to break out of prison plan – think Shawshank Redemption.

The group objective is to break all teams out of Prison as quickly as possible with teams who have successfully broken out being able to assist the teams still inside.
