Unusual team building activities in Singapore
Events held by companies to build cohesiveness and team spirit among their employees have long been a staple of corporate life. More traditional activities include scavenger hunts or paintball competitions, where teams learn to work with their colleagues to achieve a common objective while having fun.
In recent years, more progressive companies are going off the beaten track to organise more interesting corporate bonding initiatives. If you’re hoping to do something a little different for your company’s offsite, here are our suggestions below. In most cases, you will need to contact each operator directly to get rates and packages for corporate events.
These brain teasers in a room require a big dose of teamwork, communication and analytical skills to solve. They are ideal for getting groups to work closely to overcome a hurdle while having a ton of fun in the process. Having hosted over 1,000 corporate events, Captivate Escape Rooms near Dhoby Ghuat is a great place to start. It features seven different escape rooms (Alien vs Human, CSI, Labyrinth: Dead Men Walking, among some) that teams can only get out of by solving puzzles.
Those who prefer to get outdoors might want to try Forest Adventure, a treetop course at Bedok Reservoir Park. The Grand Course, the park’s toughest, is a 2.5-hour long activity involving 44 obstacles, including three giant ziplines, up among the treetops.
Forest Adventure caters to team building events, where colleagues tackle obstacles as a group. Prices for group bookings start at $38 per person for a minimum of 20 persons.
Imagine a game of soccer where players become a ball! In bubble soccer, participants play football encased inside an inflated bubble which covers the player’s upper body and head. You can bump into opponents without worrying about injury.
Bubble Bump at Turf City organises games designed for corporate building events, from one-hour soccer games to full-day activities that also challenge the mind.
KF1 Karting Circuit
Motorheads will get a kick out of KF1 Karting Circuit, one of Singapore’s few dedicated race tracks. The circuit can be configured into two separate tracks, catering to larger groups who want to get as much racing in as possible. The track was designed by world renowned Formula One circuit designer, Hermann Tilke, so you know it’s going to be challenging.
