In Person Teambuilding Events

Home / in person teambuilding

For groups based in New York City, treat your team to an in-person adventure that will show you the city like you’ve never seen it before.

Have you ever seen a clue baked into a knish at a generations-old Jewish bakery? Ever gotten a secret hand-off in a bar that George Washington frequented? In our in-person experiences, you can expect to uncover clues through anything-but-obvious challenges, like creating rubbings of famous plaques that reveal hidden meanings, visiting stores that seem to have been lost to time, or even tracking down a clue hidden on a 10-story-tall Times Square video billboard.


Flexible enough to accommodate teams from four to 4000, the challenge divides larger groups into smaller teams that compete to find and decode a series of interactive clues. Our two-to-four hour experiences are designed to build cooperation, encourage out-of-the-box thinking, reveal hidden or unused talents, and explore the city like you’ve never seen it before.

HOW IT WORKS

Using our state-of-the-art web app, visual, auditory, and tactile clues prompt challengers to race between secret locations and perform interactive tasks in order to advance to the next clue. This might mean tasting a dessert to find the puzzle hidden within, retrieving a burner phone from under a park bench, receiving a keyword on a napkin in a speakeasy, or striking up a conversation with a seeming passer-by. Once they’ve solved all the clues, teams join each other again at the finish line to share food, drink, and tales of their experiences.

Vanguards of the Village

Our most popular offering! Weave through the village haunts of the captivating cadres of artists, hippies, and musicians that became inseparable from the city’s identity.

Two men search the woods in central park.

Central Park Sprint

Our shortest challenge, set entirely in the Crown Jewel of NYC - Central Park - great for teams who wish to spend time outside the gridlock.

A wall street photo from 1920 is held by hand to align perfectly with its modern setting.

New Amsterdam Scramble

High stakes in lower Manhattan! Dart in and out of back alleys, curious shops, and little-known locations in the oldest parts of the island, all while competing against your group in this test of wits, will, and googling.

Two people solve a clue together while skyscrapers loom in the background.

Lights of Midtown

A race through the corporate canyons of midtown, prompting you to "look up" and see the lights and buildings that make Midtown great. Especially fun after dark!

A woman solves a clue in a speakeasy.

Mystery in the Mighty Metropolis

Our twist on a murder mystery party, this year-round offering takes place indoors, and will have your team conversing with character actors, puzzling, and eating and drinking their way to the solution of a dramatic and dastardly deed.

Custom Events

Our “off-the-shelf” challenges are available to run on pre-set courses. However, what if you want something more bespoke?

Our custom challenges give our clients complete freedom to shape the experience as they see fit, from locations to difficulty to theme - we add special details like inside jokes, product or industry themes, or company history, mission and vision elements.

We can build in premium experiences (like buzzing down the river in a speedboat;) luxurious, private locations; or even build bespoke challenges in a completely new city for your special event. If a custom event sounds like a good match for your team and fits within your budget, we’d love to help. Just ask!

"One of our directors told me it was one of the best organized online challenges they've done."
