A cursed artefact has been stolen and kept in the vault of the famous Xerxes museum. In order to end the curse, you and your team have been tasked with breaking into the museum to retrieve the artefact and return it to its rightful owner. Unfortunately, it will not be easy as the museum’s security system has been designed to protect its most prized treasures. Breaking in and opening the vault will require teamwork, communication and problem solving.

The Heist is an online escape room which involves you and your team breaking in, and not out of this museum. Retrieving the artefact cannot be done alone and will require a crack team of specialists working together.

Using a video conferencing platform to communicate and plan, teams will access the online portal to solve escape room style puzzles and riddles. What makes The Heist the ultimate online team building event is the thrill of competing against other teams in the organisation to be the first ones to retrieve the artefact and be declared the winners!
