Anaheim team events ideas

5 Fresh Ideas for Anaheim Team Events

I recently attended an expo at the Anaheim Convention Center.  It may have been a Disney fan convention.  My nerdy-ness knows no bounds.  If you are brought out to Anaheim for a sales conference or meeting, know that the city has so many unique venues for a team outing.  What was once just sprawling citrus groves is now jam-packed with entertainment options.  I’ve compiled my favorite ideas for Anaheim team events below.

1. Disneyland Scavenger Hunt

We’ll start with the giant mouse in the room.  Anaheim is most widely known as the home of Disneyland.  Its popularity is all encompassing and certain to peak with the upcoming addition of a Star Wars themed land.  I love Disneyland for all the great photo locations throughout the park.  Grab your team for FireFly’s most magical team building challenge: a scavenger hunt at Disneyland Resort.  We’ve run hunts both in the park and exclusively in the adjacent Downtown Disney shopping area so theme park admission isn’t always needed.  This option is great for staff that are bringing their families with them or teams that like to be a bit Goofy!

2. Escape Room Anaheim Team Events

FireFly’s love of escape rooms is well documented.  In fact, our facilitators have collectively completed over 50 rooms.  One of our absolute favorites is Cross Roads Escape Games, located in Anaheim!  We attempted their Hex Room together and had a blast.  Themed after the scary movie genre, we had to race to solve the case of the murderer and find our own survival tokens.  The Hex Room is unique because each participant is placed in their own room with limited communication to the rest of the team.  More so, its a unique challenge that benefits from a thorough debriefing afterwards.  Consider contracting an experienced facilitator to help your team draw meaning out of their experience.

3. Sports Go Sports!

Anaheim is home to two great sports teams.  The Angels baseball team and the Ducks hockey team.  Tickets to one of their exciting games is always a good incentive reward.  Make your team the star by booking Anaheim team events at the Honda Center or Angel Stadium.

4. OC Foodie Paradise

If you have any foodies in your group, you’ll need to visit the Anaheim Packing House. The building is one of the few remaining structures from the agricultural era of the town.  Take a culinary tour through the two story mecca of southern California cuisine.  You’ll often find local musicians performing free concerts here, so it’s a great spot for groups wanting food and entertainment on a budget.  This trendy spot is popular among locals so we recommend using Anaheim’s superior public transit to arrive stress free.

5. I.P.A. I.Q.

It might be due to the high population density of service industry workers, but Anaheim is home to some really good bars.  So if you like craft beer, Lyft over to Bottle Logic Brewing.  Craft beer made from SCIENCE!  You can even get your brew in a chemistry beaker.  I like their bar for the wide open seating area that’s perfect for mingling or as a setting for our Game Showdown.

Anaheim is a great city that extends beyond the tourist attractions.  If you’d like to enjoy the town with a kick awesome team building twist, contact us at james@fireflyteamevents.com or 877.267.1939

Bike Build

A bicycle is more than just a toy in the life of a child. Every time the turn the handlebars they’re making a choice. Each press of the pedals gets them to their destination under their own power. Bikes can help kids feel empowered to be independent, fit, and motivated. HG Wells once said that for every adult he saw on a bike he had hope for the world. We like to say the putting kids on bikes gives up hope for the future. Gather your team and get ready for a transformative team experience for your coworkers and the kids that receive the bikes. Create a breathtaking experience for local children for your employee party.  View Additional Details

Orange County Team Building – Wipeout Warrior

Anaheim Team BuildingWe had a phenomenal team building event with a local financial company. They drove over from their offices in Huntington beach to tackle the AMAZING obstacles at Sender One Climbing in Santa Ana. Within minutes of their arrival they were laughing and high fiving. We started them off with some team building challenges on the ground to work on rapport, communication and trust. After some facilitated discussion it was time to tackle the high elements. At the top of our Leap element each person stated a personal goal for the company before they jumped. On our Zen Towers they chose one thing to share with the group that they felt they needed help with at work. And then.. they jumped!

Orange County Team Building – Lawn Bowling with HGST

We had a great time lawn bowling with HGST in Orange County! Having recently been acquired by Western Digital, the goal was to give the staff a chance to get to know one another. Lawn bowling combined with  a gorgeous day and an ocean view was perfect for this team building event. It’s light competition, relaxed pacing, and accessible to anyone regardless of physical strength. We loved how HGST really embraced the spirit of the day by wearing the traditional all white associated with the sport of lawn bowling. After a quick lesson the teams jumped right into the tournament that we’d arranged for them. We finished it out with a large group challenge called a Spider Bowl.
