Team Building Orange County – Tactical Team Challenge

Sighting down the barrel of a gun is similar to attempting a sales goal. You’re going to need focus, know what you’re aiming for, and proper support. With the combination of those things you or your team WILL find results.

We’ve created a new team building event in Orange County that uses state of the art tactical training as a learning tool. Utilizing a full immersive interactive simulator and simulated live fire we can take your team places never before possible. You’ll face everything from the target range to video realistic tactical simulations. They are designed to increase your pulse rate, breathing, and get the adrenaline pumping to mimic real world stress. The simulation doesn’t end until you’ve done your job and delivered results. Your team will learn to push through the stress and make decisions in a unique environment. Rather than stepping down when they take a hit or a client says no, they PUSH.

Orange County Tactical Team building We’ll rotate your group through 4-6 stations that challenge them in unique ways. Our 3 tactical simulators require them to make decisions under stress and refuse to accept defeat. We’ve partnered with Warrior to Warrior to provide a Hand to Hand combat sessions. We also have a Team Challenge Station with tactical inspired team building challenges that need trust, communication, and problem solving to complete.

Irvine Team Building Ideas – 3 Great Options

Irvine Team BuildingWe’ve listed 3 of our favorite team building events in Irvine, Ca below.  We love playing games and challenging all the tech companies and major corporations who call Irvine home. One of Irvine’s advantages is that is located within a 45 minute drive of  a lot of Southern California attractions(unless there’s traffic). Whether you want to play some games on the beach, do a scavenger hunt style event in Laguna, or get competitive in a park they’re all within reach.

These are 3 of our favorite recommendations for your next team building in Irvine.

Throwdown Rally – The scavenger hunt re-imagined…

Grab your team and battle your competition in the ultimate team race combining technical, mental, and physical challenges. We’ve pulled together game play elements from shows like Amazing Race and Survivor. Your team will race to answer trivia, solve clues, and out think the rest of the teams. Along the way you’ll tackle some of our specially designed team physical challenges for huge points. It’s like a scavenger hunt that’s been pumped full of Red Bull that’s watched too much reality TV. Will your team rise to the top?

Team Adventure Course – Can you hang?

You’ll start out on the ground with a series of team challenges designed to get your teams working together and finding solutions. Then we’ll move to the high course where you and your team will move through breathtaking challenges, as a group, that are 40ft and 60ft off the ground. All your efforts are rewarded at the end with an amazing zipline ride back down.

Tactical Team Up – Weapons training as Team Building

Team Building Event Tip: Move it Off-site

Leave Your Work Now Moving your team building event away from the workplace or conference site increases engagement, removes distractions, and allows your employees to relax and invest more in the experience. . We’ve found that our clients have a much higher attendance rate when they shift their team events to an offsite venue like a park or hotel. Work comes with a lot of responsibilities and distractions for your team members when they’re onsite. It can be hard to say no to a last minute request from a coworker in a different department. That  todo list is sooooo close if they just snuck away for 10 minutes. Shifting the event to a different venue helps focus your team members on the experience allowing them to give themselves permission to relax and enjoy. This is key to having a successfull team event no matter if it’s team bonding or team building.

If you need ideas for offsite venues check in with our event specialists at 877.267.1939. Or take a look at our post about 3 Great Orange County Team Building Locations

Team FireFly!

3 Great Team Building Venues in Orange County

Looking for a venue for your team building event in Orange County? We typically look for locations that offer a change of scenery, good access to facilities like restrooms, parking availability, and minimal travel time to reach it. Here are 3 venues or locations that are perfect for Orange County team building events.

Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa – Huntington Beach

With it’s sprawling resort layout and oceanfront placement, we love playing at the Hyatt. There are 2 main lawns that are perfect for large and small group team activities. Larger properties like the Hyatt also work well for our team rallies. The staff at the hotel is always happy to help with clues, customer service and they treat their guest like locals. A bridge spanning Pacific Coast Highway connects the resort to the beach. From volleyball tournaments to an Iron Team Challenge we love getting groups on the sand.

Downtown Laguna Beach

Laguna Beach offers the perfect backdrop for our Throwdown Rally and other team events. Its adorable shops and world class art galleries give us plenty to work with when we build our scavenger hunts. Wrap up your team building event in Laguna by celebrating at one of the unique local restaurants and bars. It’s a quiet village by the sea and is great for large and small groups. Nearby accomodation includes Hotel Laguna, The Montage, Pelican Hill, and The Ritz-Carlton.

Irvine Regional Park – Irvine, Ca

If you need space for your team event we highly recommend Irvine Region Park. It’s snuggled back in the hills of Orange county but only minutes off the freeway. We’ve hosted large and small groups here. There are clean restrooms, parking, water fountains, and lots of great shade trees to keep your group cool in the sun. Corporate team building events in an outdoor park setting helps support the local community and can invigorate your group the way a city can’t. Take a deep breath, feel the sun on your face, and find out what events we can offer your group.

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.
