Live action laser tag is an exciting and effective team building activity. Your staff, fundraising committee, sports team or scout squad will have fun and develop important competitive skills. Bring them to Golfland where people of all ages can have a blast. Mini golf, arcade games, water slides, and more; we offer an exciting mix for an entire day of fun. Why settle for boring activities when you can engage everyone in some friendly competition? Use these laser tag success strategies to maximize your team’s potential and experience.

Tips for Successful Team Building and Laser Tag  

Fear of the unknown is common. This may cause some adults and kids to avoid playing laser tag. With a little bit of persuasion and a quick run through of basic techniques, your team can have loads of fun.

  1. Dress for success: Wear dark-colored clothing to blend into the darkness of the indoor arena. Make sure you have comfortable shoes (sneakers are best) and dress in layers because it can get cold inside.
  2. Plan to win: Pick a leader who can study the layout quickly to identify good attack and cover points before planning the best route of attack. Crouch low and walk like a crab to avoid being seen. Turn sideways when you see someone trying to hit you. Rapid firing is more effective at taking out your opponents than waiting for the perfect shot. Keep your eye on the goal, which is to get the top score and win.
  3. Get out of the comfort zone: Staying in the same spot to be safe can be boring. Attack is the best form of defense. While moving around has an element of risk, it can also help you tag more people on the opposing team. Getting to the upper level gives you a distinctive advantage as you have a better view.
  4. Communicate: Establish ways to communicate with your team members about dangers and potential targets. Come up with a special team hoot or whistle to alert each other.
  5. Have fun: Shooting or getting more points than an annoying classmate, relative or co-worker is exhilarating and motivating. Always remember that you are here to have fun and keep with the spirit of the game.

No More Boring Group Events! Join the Fun at Golfland

If you are planning an event for your corporate team, social group, Scouts patrol, or school group, consider a mix of outdoor and indoor activities. Your event participants will appreciate the opportunity to enjoy the fresh air as they get to know each other. Forget the tired, boring icebreakers and think outside the box. Mini golf, arcade games, a water park, bumper boats, laser tag, and more fun activities are available at Golfland. Step up the excitement for your group events to see the results of highly productive team building and group learning exercises.

How to make the most of your group events:

  • Putt-Putt Fundraising: A mini golf charity event is an effective way to raise money for your cause. Local companies can sponsor a “hole” in exchange for colorful advertising that will connect them with the community. If your event is for a social club or sports team, you can charge a nominal fee per hole to generate more funds. Mini golf is popular with all ages, so you can look forward to a generous response.
  • Math-A-Thon at the Games Arcade: Games play a key role in learning. Arcade games can improve and reinforce math skills. Playing to win tickets and adding up points to claim wacky prizes can make math fun. Golfland has some of the newest and most exciting games for the little ones as well as teenagers.
  • Build Team Spirit with Laser Tag: There’s nothing like a bit of friendly competition to boost team spirit. A challenging session of laser tag could be the ultimate team building activity. It reinforces the fundamentals of teamwork such as communication, cooperation, fun, and trust. Organize departments into groups and encourage everyone to participate.
  • Make Your Party a Splash! Plan your next church group picnic or an employee appreciation event at one of our water parks. Rocketing down a gravity-defying water slide or plunging down thunder falls is an invigorating experience.
  • Treat Your Scouts to the Lil’ Indy Raceway: Reward your Scout patrol with the Indy experience. They will love the feeling of ‘life in the fast lane’. Double seat cars are usually available for those who fit the height criteria (under 58 inches but over 40 inches), although it may limit them to experience the race from the passenger seat, with an adult driver.

5 Unique Corporate Outing Ideas

When you are planning an event for your company, offer your team members a day they will remember. Try to avoid a predicable setting, such as a restaurant or a local park. By providing your staff with several hours of sheer fun, you will make the occasion special. When you are exploring corporate outing ideas, remember that entertaining activities can also serve as an exercise in team building.

 

  1. Miniature Golf – Heading to a traditional golf course is not really new or exciting for most adults. However, an afternoon of mini golf is sure to evoke the inner child in each of your guests. A company outing should stray from the conventional, and ignite a sense of renewed creativity that your employees can take back to the workplace.
  2. Arcade Games – When was the last time your employees had a chance to indulge in some old-fashioned fun? Provide your guests with an arcade setting that will allow them to abandon their adult hats for a while.
  3. Laser Tag: A session of laser tag could be the ultimate team-building activity. Encourage everyone to participate, and you might have a group discussion about what you all learned when you return to the office.
  4. Water Slides: Not every activity needs to be about team building. Rocketing down a refreshing slide is just good for the spirit. This is an opportunity for your employees to be carefree.
  5. Bumper Cars: Tensions can build in any workplace environment. Let your employees work out their differences in a safe way, with bumper cars! Bumping into a few walls can help your workers to forget their worries and be silly!

 

Try Golfland for Successful Corporate Outings 

Don’t book your next company event in a boring, stuffy banquet hall. Take your staff members somewhere that will amuse and delight them. Golfland offers several attractions designed to bring out the kid in everyone.

All our locations are distinct, yet equally exciting, so look to see what each one has to offer. Whether you book your Golfland adventure in San Jose, Castro Valley, Sunnyvale, or Milpitas, be sure to check out our group packages. Golfland has something for everyone on your payroll.
