80s Themed Team Building: Totally 80s Decathalawn

We had a totally radical time with Ghirardelli Chocolate Company at the Pasea Hotel in Huntington Beach for an 80s themed team building event. Our newest, coolest and raddest Totally 80s Decathalawn! Our tubular clients came dressed to impress with leg warmers, bright makeup and BIG hair! Awesome costumes included Marty McFly, Slash, Madonna, Ghostbusters and lots of Jazzercise get-ups. Even our team got in on the neon fashion action!

Classic 80s Games With a Team Building Twist

We introduced new games inspired by the decade we were celebrating. Teamwork really came into play with Team Pac-Man. Individual team members controlled isolated movements of our favorite pie man. Everyone worked together to make sure Pac-Man ate all his Pac-Dots while avoiding the ghosts!

80s themed team building

What do chopsticks, pencils and red solo cups have in common? They were all supplies for Double Dare, where teams competed head to head in zany feats using common household items. We loved how competitive the teams were throughout the game. Shouting counts as team communication, right?

The most challenging game of the day was our cooperative take on the classic Operation board game. Teams had to work together to carefully remove pieces from the game board without setting off the buzzer! We salute those who were successful.

80s themed team building

Everyone performed well on our Totally 80s Trivia Quiz. Nobody was a goober and teams remembered those Happy Days like they were yesterday!

It was a beautiful day on the Pasea Hotel’s lawn overlooking the ocean. And the great event was capped off with dancing to the groovy tunes of a local 80s cover band. Seeing everyone let loose and have fun being creative and a little silly was for sure what made this team building event a memorable one.

Let’s like, totally get this 80s themed team building started.

Graffiti Team Building in Orange County – Nike

Graffiti Team Building

Be Bold! Nike approached us to create a unique team building experience for them. They’ve done it all and needed a fresh concept for their meeting in Huntington Beach. We’ve been working with several top level Graffiti Artists to create a funky new concept for our clients. We knew our Mural Madness would be a perfect fit with Nike.

On the day of the event they arrived with no idea of what they’d be doing. After a quick icebreaker our Artist took over and the group got colorful. Markers in hand they learned how to create a “tag” or nickname then got to practice writing on one of our portable walls.

team building foot golfFoot Golf Tournament – The New Soccer
Everyone can Kick, but not everyone can swing a golf club. In Foot Golf you don’t need a club. You’ll play a 9 hole golf course using normal golf rules for this team building. Instead of a golf ball you’ll use a soccer ball, instead of a club you’ll use your foot. The holes are soccer ball sized and ANYONE can play. This is the perfect mix of competition and strategy for a Sales or Marketing group. Will your group be above par? Contact james@fireflyteamevents.com for pricing details or call 877.267.1939

 

 

Techno Rally 

Take the Amazing Race and load it up with RedBull then add elements of Survivor and a scavenger hunt and you might come close to describing this team event. Each team solves puzzles, completes challenges, and hunts for answers as they race to the finish line. They’ll have to strategize and execute if they want to maximize their points. You can’t win if you don’t play hard. Does your team have what it takes? Great for large and small groups in areas like Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, and Laguna Beach.

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.

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.
