We all enjoy getting out of the office from time to time to do something fun with our colleagues. If you are looking for a unique team building activity for your next company outing in Sydney then we have a few ideas for you. Let’s start the list with something peculiar, and a little bit Mad Max…
1. MANIAX AXE THROWING
Need to bury the hatchet? MANIAX Axe throwing professionals invite you to experience the primal thrill of hurling some hatchets at wooden targets (no, you can't throw an axe at your boss!). You can set the score straight once and for all in this weird of weird company event. Even if your team is not very competitive, it might be fun to look for your inner Khal Drogo and learn to throw axes like a legend. They say that hitting your first bullseye is pretty addictive.
Although it might sounds dangerous, MANIAX ensures that axe throwing is in fact a very safe sport and is great for everyone, regardless of gender, fitness level or body type. It's all about technique, not strength. MANIAX's axe-cellent (sorry) couches will instruct your team on how to throw the axe as well as host games and the tournament. There are Corporate packages for food and beverages available. Treat your staff to a unique experience which they'll be talking about around the water cooler for months to come!

2. FLYING TRAPEZE
Remember that time you forgot to catch the blindfolded IT guy as he fell backwards in the game of trust? Well you might want to sharpen up your catch skills if you want to try this next event- as we’re taking it to a whole new level on a trapeze! Watch your teammates glide through the air with the greatest of ease, perform backflips and other tricks at the Circus Arts located at the beautiful Aquatic Centre in Sydney. It’s the ideal way to bring a team together by challenging fears, breaking through barriers and encouraging peer support. Aquatic Centre is a beautiful outdoors location and you can take a swim after your class.

3. SOCIAL ESCAPE ROOMS
Looking to take your team somewhere exciting and intense while in Sydney, so they can release some pent-up stress? Look no further than Social Escape Rooms. You and your team will be transported to Paris or Victorian London, solving murder mysteries or maybe even robbing a bank… It’s ideal for small teams (up to 6 people) and when the weather turns nasty. This is sure to keep your team entertained, with problem solving front and centre.

4. VIRTUAL ROOM SYDNEY
Because there’s no reality like virtual reality! This list would be incomplete without Virtual Room Sydney - one of Australia’s best team-based virtual reality experiences. Blending the escape room concept with full 3D cinematic experience Virtual Room brings a unique, immersive and mind-blowing adventure for the whole team. Plus, there is the added benefit of watching your colleagues make fools of themselves while wearing goggles. Who doesn’t want to see there boss walk into a wall? Win-win.

5. HOLEY MOLEY MINI GOLF BAR
Holey Moley Golf Club isn’t your traditional spinning windmill from the 1800s kind of mini-golf. It’s a pop-culture inspired labyrinth including kitsch décor and unexpected gems. Mini golf is a great opportunity for your colleagues to get competitive but not too serious. Enjoy the visual delights of the weird and wonderful course, test out your hand-eye coordination and find out once and for all who is most likely to win those high value clients thanks to their golf game!

6. GET OUTDOORS WITH The 100 POINT CHALLENGE
If you want an outdoor, active experience that engages people with the city and most importantly, each other, then the 100 Point Challenge is right for you! With challenges for groups with different levels of Sydney familiarity, there is something for everyone. Those new to Sydney would play Convict’s Quest while local teams can try their hand at either Bushranger's Bash or Hogan's Hunt. The game is a unique blend of problem solving, creativity, logic, navigation, and teamwork, with a teams asked to complete a series of different challenges based around the Rocks and Circualr Quay area.
Each team is given their own race pack (complete with retro polaroid camera) and has two hours to race around the city and score as many points as possible… And it’s a lot tougher than you’d think! We specialise in organising analogue city experiences (finally a chance to not look at your phone or computer!), and have worked with many of the world’s most recognisable brands from Google to IKEA.
