Your group deserves a fun corporate outing that doesn’t suck. That’s why we’re bringing you fun, and totally not boring, team bonding and team building activities and ideas for your next corporate event in Kansas City.
1. All-things teamwork (games or activities)
Having fun is great. But working on projects together can help your corporate event take the next step to not only be rewarding, but to also help you experience something out-of-the-box.
Spending time on a collective effort with your fellow employees can help you gain new perspectives and better understand how other people learn and experience the world.
You can hone in on your team’s team-building skills WHILE having fun, with activities and games like:
- Yard Games (like Giant Jenga, Darts, Connect 4, or Cornhole)
- Goat Yoga (yes, really!)
- Escape Rooms
- Batting Cages
- Rock Wall
- Laser Tag
- Ping Pong
- Carnival Games (Feed the Penguin, Konk the Crow, Barnstormers)
- Athletic Corporate Challenges
- Campfire Activities

2. Something yummy
The best corporate events have the best food, hands down. How else would you refuel for activities?
Your corporate event venue should definitely offer catering services; from a logistical perspective, you’ll have a lot less coordinating and a lot more fun when you allow your event venue to take care of food for you, rather than dealing with a separate caterer.
3. Anything fast
There’s nothing quite like whizzing by all of your co-workers in a pedal race, or slamming into Dave from accounting in a bumper car. #TakeThatDave When you have team activities that go fast, it will get your heart beating, your adrenaline pumping, and your senses heightened.
For most corporations, this can be a completely different experience from the everyday routine of their office lives, and therefore a great way to get to know your co-workers in a new and exciting environment.
