The Techno Rally: A Bold And Crazy Team Building Scavenger Hunt

Looking for a great way to get your group out of the meeting room and into the glorious sunlight? Imagine doing just that while also building strong working relationships in the process. These are the big draws for our ever popular Techno Rally team building scavenger hunt.

Location, Location, Location

First, pick any location. Our clients have been spotted arm-wrestling senior citizens and admiring Manic Panic hair-do’s in various parts of Los Angeles and Orange County. Any interesting location where you are having a meeting or group event is an option. Then, let us create a hilariously wacky adventure that your co-workers will thank you for arranging.

The Team Building Scavenger Hunt Is On!

Your group will be mixed into teams who will take on crazy challenges like re-enacting high school prom photo poses. So, we’ll give them a chance to cheese it up and chase each other down as they race against the clock to complete as many challenges as possible. Groups begin by picking team names that will strike fear in the hearts of their opponents. Then, each team will pick an “App Master” who will download our scavenger hunt mobile app. The app keeps the group in check as to what’s next on the timed agenda. Strategy is key because there’s no way to complete all tasks in the time allotted. Groups must wisely choose which tasks to tackle for the most points.

Finally, they’re off to snap photos with iconic local structures, interact with the locals, and other outlandish actions. Teams will be virtually race each other as they move up and down the app’s leader board throughout the event. And lastly, they must make it back to the final meeting point before the buzzer. We turn off the leader board results in the final moments, so the winner will be a surprise to all participants. The first round of drinks are on the winning team!

Personalization For The Win

Clients can add personal touches to the event with trivia questions or other checkpoint challenges related to the company. We will help you design the event to drive home a deeper team building message to everyone on your team. Contact James Bennett at james@fireflyteamevents.com to get a-movin’ and make this adventure happen!

3 Hilarious Las Vegas Scavenger Hunts

So your team has made it to Las Vegas for your sales meeting or conference, you want to engage with them in a team building event, but you’ll need something as flashy and exciting as Sin City to keep everyone actively involved. Our scavenger hunts are so wild you won’t have to worry about staff “checking out” to hit the slots. Below we’ve compiled our three favorite hunts to celebrate the spirit of the Strip.

Crazy Eighties
Break out your leg warmers and neon spandex to jazzercise your way through the casinos. We take it back to the super rad ’80s with hip trivia, wacky props and funky challenges. Creative costumes abound, we’ve seen everything from Exercise Barbies to Top Gun. This scavenger hunt is always the most talked about time on the agenda at conferences, a great time to let your hair down (before styling it way way up) and let your competitive spirit out.

Hangover
If your convention goers want to experience Las Vegas we’ve got the hook ups with photo challenges that will take teams to all the best iconic locations in the city. We know team building is best when you focus on the fun so we’ll unleash your team on the Strip to get up to hijinks worthy of the Hangover films. All you have to do is snap photographic evidence of your team completing the zany challenges. The more you can make us laugh the more points your team will win. After the event you’ll have great pictures, better memories, and an intimate knowledge of Las Vegas.

Techno Rally
Our original scavenger hunt, the Techno Rally, focuses on the team building. We’ll set up checkpoint challenges where your team will need to work together to complete the objective in addition to location trivia and photo quests. Arm wrestle a child, pose with a statue, dance by a fountain and more to win your team the most points. You can add your own theme to the event, or skip the costumes if that’s your jam. You bring the people, we’ll bring the fun.

To get your team out on the town contact us at james@fireflyteamevents.com.  We’ll help you choose the scavenger hunt or team building event that’s right for your group.

Las Vegas Team Building

3 Fun Las Vegas Team Building Ideas

During your next conference in Las Vegas make memories you don’t mind sharing outside the city. Team building events help your group experience the town, engage their competitive drive, and give back to the community, but most of all your co-workers will reconnect, engage and have fun. With the excitement of sin city at your doorstep, you should look for an experience that’s just as high energy as your surroundings in order to attract and keep the attention of your team. These ideas are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of options for events in Las Vegas, just like some of the local casinos, there’s no limit.

Vegas Photo Scavenger Hunt

Your coworkers are likely very excited to be visiting Las Vegas as it’s been popularized in movies and TV shows for decades. Set them loose and let them explore. On a photo scavenger hunt they’ll run around the Strip in teams as they complete challenges. One challenge might have them walking like Egyptians under the Luxor pyramid, while another could require them to get a photo behind the bar at one of Vegas’s many lounges . Photo Scavenger hunts have the benefit of allowing your team to enjoy the sights and sounds of the tourist destination while working together to earn points. At the end of the program you’ll leave with a thick photo album of memories, or blackmail depending on your point of view.

Team Olympics

Las Vegas is more than casinos and stage shows. Nestled in the Sierra Nevada Desert, the views are breathtaking. Minutes from the Strip lies the Red Rock Recreation Area. Get out and enjoy the outdoors while annihilating the competition. Team Olympics gives groups the chance to be more active, while not requiring any particularly impressive physical prowess. Furthermore the challenges in a Team Olympics aren’t traditional sporting events, but physical brain teasers requiring communication, strategy, leadership and teamwork. If you want to have a meaningful debrief with your team about group dynamics and how you work together this is the best event to facilitate that discussion.

Charity Events

If your company is looking to give back to the community, Las Vegas has several worthwhile local charities to partner with. Many of these events have the added benefit of being able to be conducted inside (in the A/C!) when temperatures get too hot outside. Make the most of your commitment to contribute with a fun event for your staff coupled with your donation. Enhance a bike build by having teams complete small challenges to win parts for the bicycle. When giving to a food bank we’ve had teams construct mini golf courses from the canned goods. Be creative and have fun. Celebrate the good fortune of your company by helping others. Who knows, the good karma that comes from it might reward you on the casino floor.



Whatever team building event you decide is best for your group keep in mind your surroundings. Las Vegas can extremely hot. We make sure to bring sunscreen and water to our outdoor events so make sure your team stays safe and goes home happy and healthy.  Contact our team today at 877.267.1939 or email james@fireflygroupevents.com to help you win big with your Las Vegas team building event.

Hollywood Scavenger Hunts That Don’t Suck

Our scavenger hunts make your team the stars of your Hollywood corporate team building adventure. Rather than fighting throngs of tourists to take the same pictures you see on the internet, we put your team in front of the camera ensuring you finish your day with an album of great memories. There’s no useless knick knacks to collect, no confusing maze of directions for you to follow; just totally awesome break dance battles, duck faces and swagger. Show off how your selfie skills are on par with Kim Kardashian and strike a pose.

To guarantee you have the most fun team building scavenger hunt experience we utilize a smartphone app in our Techno Rallies. After you load the free app you’ll find dozens of challenges we’ve custom designed for your group and location. While you’re exploring Los Angeles simply choose a challenge, snap a pic, and earn points! Some of our favorite challenges include challenging kids to a tug of war, ninja fighting with strangers, and re-enacting famous paintings complete with makeshift costume pieces.  Surprises will pop up along the way as our staff find ways to ignite your competitive spirit.  After the event we’ll provide all the photos your group took so they can be shared around the office or on social media.

If you want a unique teambuilding event you’ll love being able to customize and theme the challenges. We love seeing teams get into the spirit and dress up, and we’re even able to create challenges tailored to your group. Take advantage of your famous LA location and host a celebrity inspired photo shoot, a tribute to the Golden Age of Hollywood or a movie trivia extravaganza. We’ve had teams decked out in 80s fashion, superhero capes and even Oscar worthy formal wear. You’ll be amazed at just how cool your coworkers can be.

Orange County Team Building Idea: Huntington Beach

Three legged race team buildingWelcome to the Original Surf City! Huntington Beach is a beautiful location for team building in Orange County. It’s not just because they’ve got gorgeous beaches. You’ll find the tourist friendly local culture perfect for your sales conference or company meeting.  Venue or activity space is a huge consideration with team building events and you’ll find plenty in this seaside town. The 4 most common team building venues we work in are Hotel Event Spaces, Beaches, Parks and Downtown or Pedestrian areas.

Hotel Event Spaces

Thanks to the beachfront Waterfront Hilton, The Hyatt, and the Shorebreak Hotel there are some beautiful resort settings for your team event. We’ve produced events in their conference rooms, lawns, and ballrooms. Hotels have the built in advantage of easy access to amenities like catered food and drink and customer service. The staff at all three of these locations treat everyone like a local so you’ll feel right at home.

Beaches

Want to move offsite? Walk across the street, historic Pacific Coast Highway, and you’re at the beach. Unlike south county beaches, we can accommodate any size group on the sand in HB. They are perfect for our  Adaptation Event, team olympics, group excursions, and beach specific activities like sand castle building competitions.

Parks

If you don’t want sand in your shoes Huntington Central Park is a fantastic location for team team building events in Orange County. The beautiful tree lined walking paths make a great playing field for our Reality Rally, Iron Team Challenge, or a round of frisbee golf at their world famous course.

Downtown

Huntington Beach has a quaint beachside main street and pier area that we’ve used for some crazy fun team scavenger hunts and Throwdown Rallys. Your group will have a great time hunting for clues, chasing points, and trying to outdo the other teams on the streets of HB.
