From experiential to extremely entertaining, we have a program to fit your goals. Our Team Building events help to increase morale and productivity at your company while your employees have fun in the process.
Our Right Stuff scavenger hunt has been adapted for several locations in the Bay Area as well as Palm Springs and as far as Pennsylvania. The “Hot Air” Balloon Building exercise is compact and mobile and has toured from coast to coast. Game Shows that can be fully customized with your company’s content. Our outdoor Team Games can be a part of your Company Picnic or just an afternoon away from the office for a little bonding and fun.
These are our most popular but we have designed and produced a number of different experiences depending on the needs of the client. Road Rallies, Rodeos, Film Making, Sand Castles, Battle Bots, instruction, construction, destruction … for any function.
Hot Air Balloons
The goal is to build a lighter-than-air craft using the materials provided, present it, and race it. Teams receive points for each of the three phases. The full programs lasts about half a day depending on the number of teams. It can be shortened by skipping the Presentation phase.
BUILD – The craft must be constructed within the allotted time and must adhere to certain design parameters. Points are awarded based on use of materials and creativity.
PRESENT – Points for this phase are based on creativity.
RACE – This is all about time. The faster the team can race, the more points they will receive.
A couple of caveats to this Team Building experience:
- This is suitable for indoor areas only. The air currents of the outdoors, no matter how slight, make it too difficult to control.
- The indoor space must have a ceiling height of at least 14’
The Right Stuff
The Right Stuff is sort of a Scavenger Hunt which relies on the varied interests and knowledge within a typical group. The goal is to complete a series of tasks and come back with The Right Stuff. To complete a task, the team must decipher the hidden meaning of a short statement which contains the location they seek and the task to be performed once they get there. Teams receive one task at a time and must successfully complete that task before receiving the next one. If a team is stumped they can come to the game facilitator for help. The amount of help they receive will depend on how much they need it and the general mood of the facilitator. Each team will complete the same tasks but in a different order. The game has been written so that the players will have as little impact as possible on the public and staff at the location. Most of the tasks require a written answer with a few requiring a photo. A couple of the tasks can be completed without going anywhere. Each team is given a map of the area used for the game. Using the map along with the task is essential. The task by itself will seem to be gibberish without looking at the map.
The Right Stuff is fun and oftentimes frustrating … kind of like life. In trying to resolve the cognitive dissonance inherent in the tasks the team will learn to see things in a whole new way.
Flipper Relay – First person dons flippers and, at the whistle, runs down to the mark and back where he gives the flippers to the next team member. First team to have all its members complete the run wins.
Land Ski – The “skis” are a pair of boards with ropes attached. A team of three puts one foot on each board and takes the end of each rope in their hands. To move the skis to the other end of the course and back takes teamwork and communication.
Sack Race – The classic brought back.
Water Launcher Ball Basher Relay – Teams must move their ball to the finish line using only water power from a large squirt gun.
Water Balloon Toss – Players toss a water balloon back and forth at greater and greater distances.
Bucket Brigade – The object of the game is to transfer a full bucket of water to an empty one, one cup at a time.
Treacherous Transport – 4 ropes are attached to a small platform. By tightening and slacking the correct ends of the rope, the team moves the platform from one point to another.
Water Balloon Catapult – The catapult requires three people to operate it; two to hold and one to aim and shoot. Basically it’s a giant slingshot using people as supports
Tacky Tourist Relay – Two players at a time carry a bag to a station, don the attire in the bag, and come back, return the clothing to the bag and hand off to the next two players.
Cornhole – Teams must toss 4 bean bags through a 6” hole on a 2’x4’ platform. Each team member tosses once. Play continues through the team lineup until 4 bags are sunk.
Puzzle Challenge – Each team receives a bag of puzzle pieces and a silhouette of a shape. The team must assemble their puzzle pieces into the shape shown using all of the pieces.
