“Amazing” time for Pinnacle Team Buildiing

As the time approached, the staff was provided with addresses, but no further hints as to what the day would entail.

The group started with lunch at PF Chang’s and a caravan to The Amazing Escape Room in Freehold, NJ. The Amazing Escape Room consists of themed rooms where the players have to use teamwork and ingenuity to discover the clues which will ultimately release them.

Five teams occupied the entertainment venue’s rooms and were given one hour to escape. By using their wits, skills and a little humor, the teams gradually emerged from their prospective rooms.

Pinnacle Vice President, Dennis Rome, provided a choice of gift cards for the winners. All other participants received gift cards as well.
