You could do a team treasure hunt. I can't remember the name of the company that organizes these hunts, but if you did a search on Google you could probably find them. Teams get clues and you have to search around the city. Not only is it loads of fun, but you learn interesting facts about the city! Not sure how much it costs though...

Sorry, I guess that isn't very helpful.
I've heard arbout the flying saucer and its 200 beer!! BUT I hear that you can only count four at at time! A friend of ours has made the 200 BUT he says he really should be at 600 or so b/c he always drank a lot more than four! (I think the daily limit is 4? maybe 2)

It was sooo much fun!!!!
Frankie's Fun Park - Raleigh, NC

I second Frankie's. With the 3 miniature golf courses, miniature bowling, batting cages, and laser tag you could create teams and the team that has the highest total score for all 4 events WINS! This way individuals who may be weak in one area may excel in another so when you put teams head to head it should even up the playing field plus because the event are spread out no one will really know who's winning until the end when they tally the scores up. Golf - you can do a captain and crew, lowest team overall score wins, batting cage - team that hit the most balls wins 1 Pt per hit, laser tag - team with highest score wins, bowling - best team average wins.

Sounds fun, get creative in the scoring methodology and good luck!

Default Geocaching

Have you looked at Geocaching? They will come to you (I think) and do it wherever you want. The geocaching site is Geocaching - The Official Global GPS Cache Hunt Site and the team building site is Geoteaming(tm) brand corporate teambuilding with PlayTime, Inc.

We geocache and it is a blast -- I have never tried the team building thing, but it sounds like it would be great fun.

Good luck!

hi all,

I am also planning a team-building event for my co-workers. Does anyone know where I can buy a low-cost helium stick? Its available at one website for $65 (which is quite expensive for a one-time use helium stick :-))

I have done a couple of great team building exercised recently that included some "giving back". One was working at the Habitiat Re-Use Center for a day and another was helping out at the Durham Rescue Mission. Bot of these were followed by a nice dinner where we reflected on our efforts of the day and expressed true appreciation for what we have.

There are a couple "escape rooms" in Raleigh that could be a good team building activity.

My former employer had everyone do a volunteer day at Green Chair and that was a great bonding experience. Then we went for lunch.

Our team went to "Go Ape" off of 98. It is a ropes/obstacle course that was a lot of fun.

I hate "team-building events". Maybe it is because I am 61, but I always have a sense that these are the way they weed out the "young and strong and fit" from the "older and maybe not so fit" people -- and decide who gets the ax the next time there is a layoff. I am 61 and last time my employer had one of those marathon 4-day meetings where you start with breakfast @ 7 AM, go till 5:30, then meet at 6:30 for dinner, get back at 11, try and get some sleep and then do it all again the next day, we had a 7-mile walking tour through Prague, followed by dinner, followed by a 2-mile walk back to the hotel. Then the next day there was an "Amazing Race" kind of team-building event which involved things like climbing on top of bridges and such. I begged off from the competition, took some much-needed down time and was far less cranky at the mandatory dinner than I would have been otherwise.
