Prison Break is a team building activity that engages teams through strategy as they attempt to break out of a simulated prison.

Everything you need to know about the Prison Break team building activity

In order to be successful, all teams will need to escape the prison as quickly as possible.

Teams who have already escaped must assist other teams still stuck inside in order for all participants to successfully escape the prison.

What Happens during the Prison Break team building activity?

Inmates will get into character with fake tattoos, bandanas and several props provided to set the theme for the event.  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 – 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.  Communication, leadership, problem solving and strategy will be the key to each team’s success.   Each team will also be given a break out of prison plan which will contain a task list of activities they will need to complete in order to move on to the next stage of the break out.


Prison Break is the perfect event for a variety of occasions (team building, end of the year functions, celebrations of a goal/milestone/achievement, product launches, incentives and birthdays), for small to medium corporate groups.
