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 Las Vegas scavenger hunts are so wild you won’t have to worry about staff “checking out” to hit the slots. Las Vegas team building activities don’t have to be limited to the card tables. 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.

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. Las Vegas team building activities 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 Las Vegas team building,  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 Las Vegas 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 michael@fireflygroupevents.com to help you win big with your Las Vegas team building event.
