25 Team-Building Activities You Shouldn’t Miss in Las Vegas

Known as the Entertainment Capital of the World, Las Vegas is undoubtedly one of the best places to go for team building. 

We’re not just talking about hitting the slot machines together. We’re talking about making memories as a team and building trust and strong relationships in the process.

It’s a good thing Las Vegas is teeming with activities perfect for all kinds of teams, and we’ve put together a list of the first few ones you should try.

1. Dig This Vegas

Remember playing around in the dirt as a kid? Well, you can do that as an adult, too — but this time, while driving actual bulldozers and excavators! 

Dig This Vegas lets your team work on construction challenges for 30 to 60 minutes per session, giving you the experience you’ve always dreamed about as a kid. Don’t worry; you’ve got around 5 acres of land to work with, and not just the usual sandbox in the playground.

2. Prison Break

Nope, we’re not suggesting your team should get thrown in jail together. But we highly recommend that you check out Prison Break at The Escape Game Las Vegas!

This 60-minute escape-room challenge is one of the tougher puzzles available. Once you’ve conquered this challenge, you can also check out other themes, like Gold Rush or The Heist.

3. Archery Tag

How about playing a bit of tag but with everyone donning bows and arrows? It won’t be a bloody battle with those foam-tipped arrows flying around, but it’s going to be a lot of fun, for sure! 

Each round of archery tag at Impact Archery only lasts for 15 minutes, but that’s more than enough time to see who among the team has the best aim. 

4. Corks ‘n Crafts

Having trouble letting those creative juices flow? Then maybe your team needs to craft a few things first. Corks ‘n Crafts has everything you need for a creative afternoon — from candle-making classes to painting sessions. 

The best thing about Corks ‘n Crafts is that they can also take care of your food and drinks. This means you don’t really need to do anything else. Just enjoy the craft party and have some fun!

5. Improv for Business

Improv has become way more than just a theater exercise. Because it helps improve one’s listening and communication skills, it has also become an effective practice for professional development. 

Vegas Improv facilitates Improv for Business workshops to help teams meet and exceed their goals. You can let them know what areas you want to focus on or what industry you belong to, and the improv team will customize the experience for you to get the best results. 

6. Mixology Classes On The Strip

Obviously, team building isn’t just about business. It’s also about knowing how to have fun with people you work with every day. Enrolling in mixology classes as a group is definitely a great way to do that, especially if you’re the type of team that hangs out for drinks after work.

Mixology Classes On The Strip facilitates these classes in person, allowing you to visit any of their cocktail bars or have them come over to your own venue. They can also customize the class based on your needs and preferences.

7. The Mob Museum

300 Stewart Avenue was the city post office and courthouse in the ‘30s. Today, it has become The Mob Museum, where you can learn about some of the most notorious bad guys tried in the very same building.

Aside from the interesting exhibits, your team can go back in time and experience what it was like during the Prohibition era when you visit The Speakeasy in the basement. To keep the ambiance consistent, every cocktail and food item on the menu is inspired by the food and drinks popular in that same era.

8. Red Rock Climbing

If reaching your targets as a team sometimes feels like an uphill battle, maybe you guys need to do the practical thing — learn how to climb! 

Seriously though, rock climbing is a great exercise in trust and communication. The experts at Red Rock Climbing Center help your team members overcome their fears and conquer wall after wall, preparing everyone for the next challenge you’ll face together in the workplace.

9. Private Wine Tasting

Fancy some wine? The Sommelier Company has a wine expert in every corner of the country, ready to give you a private wine-tasting experience for your entire team.

Sign up for a wine-blending workshop and see what concoctions your group can come up with. You can even have a blind-tasting competition and see whose palate knows their wines best!

10. Valley of Fire Tour

While “Valley of Fire” sounds like a scary place, it’s actually one of the most beautiful state parks you’ll see. The fiery red sandstone formations will probably look familiar since the location has served as a backdrop to movies like Star Trek and Viva Las Vegas.

Pink Adventure Tours takes you on this adventure, driving you through the Mojave Desert aboard their tour trekkers. Your tour guide will also talk about a bit of history and the area's geology and ecology.

11. Comedy Cellar

A few laughs won’t hurt, especially if you do it as a team. Head over to the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino, where Comedy Cellar brings out some of the best comedy acts in the city.

Check out their schedule and decide which acts you want to watch. For sure, your team will pick up a joke or two that you’ll be using around the office for weeks to come.

12. Team Dinner at Block 16 Urban Food Hall

Food is always a good idea, and a team dinner at Block 16 Urban Food Hall is just the thing that could get everyone closer to each other.

Block 16 brings together a mix of different concessionaires in a single spot, so there’s something for every type of palate. From Japanese rolls to donuts and sliders, everyone can just hang out and chat over good food.

13. Painting With A Twist

Get your creative juices flowing with a bit of paint and some wine! Painting With A Twist has a collection of 9,000 different designs you can paint, so get your team together and decide which painting you want to work on.

Once your masterpieces are done, go ahead and display them in the office as a reminder of the day you showed each other just how creative you all are.

14. Lip Sync Battle

Lip-sync it like you’re on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon! R&D Events organizes Lip Sync Battles that are perfect for teams that take performances seriously. 

Split your team into groups and see how far their competitive streak will take them. No need to worry about everything else, as the events team takes care of the emcee, the DJ, the stage crew, and more!

15. Rhino Ninja Gym

Health and wellness may not exactly be the first thing that comes to mind when you’re in Vegas. But for a team that’s excited to perform well, an obstacle course is just the thing to get you in the zone.

Rhino Ninja Gym helps you realize your dream of becoming a ninja warrior. If this isn’t your thing, that’s okay! Camp Rhino has other activities your entire team will enjoy, like CrossFit and Yoga.

16. Gene Woods Racing Experience

A little adrenaline rush might be just what your team needs to stay on top of their game. Gene Woods Racing Experience is the perfect place for this activity. Their electric go-karts let you zoom through an indoor track like a pro, making you realize that go-karts aren’t the rickety vehicles they were before.

17. The High Roller

Speaking of adrenaline rush, seeing Las Vegas 550 feet above ground could be the exhilarating experience your team is looking for. In this case, a ride on the High Roller could be just the thing that gives you the thrill you’re looking for.

The High Roller is the biggest observation wheel in North America, giving you 360-degree views of the city. It’s just 30 minutes to complete an entire revolution, but that half an hour could be life-changing, especially if you’re viewing the brilliant city lights at night.

18. Dinner in the Sky

Let’s continue the thrill of enjoying Vegas from up high. Next on the list is Dinner in the Sky, a fine dining experience that literally takes you to new heights.

Dinner in the Sky is a 22-seat dinner table suspended 180 feet up in the air. You’ve got a 360-degree view of the city, plus amazing chefs and mixologists serving great food and drinks. What else could the team ask for?

19. Speed Vegas

How would it feel like to drive some of the fastest cars in the world? Speed Vegas can give your team this experience.

Take your pick out of their long list of supercars and get in the driver’s seat. From Ferraris and Corvettes to Aston Martins and Maseratis, zooming on that racetrack will make your entire team want to experience this over and over again.

20. TopGolf Las Vegas

If you’d rather have a night of holes-in-one, heading to TopGolf could be the right thing to do. TopGolf brings the traditional game of golf to the future with its climate-controlled bays, unique game setups, and self-scoring balls.

You’ll also enjoy the food and drinks served in between swings, making it a fun night out for the entire team.

21. SkyDive Las Vegas

Golfing too quiet for you? Then let’s go right back to where the adrenaline is. SkyDive Las Vegas lets you take a leap and soar at over 120 mph while you enjoy views of Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, the Valley of Fire, and more. It’s also perfect for first-timers, knowing that you have professionals jumping right with you.

22. SlotZilla Zipline

Zoom through the Fremont Street Experience on the SlotZilla Zipline! It’s a unique experience for the entire team as you zoom 7-stories high on a zipline two blocks long. You can also go for the Zoomline, which lets you ride face down like a superhero 11 stories high through a line five blocks long. 

23. Combat Zone Paintball

Proven to be one of the best team-building activities there is, a game of paintball still deserves a spot in this list of the best things you should do as a team. 

Combat Zone Paintball lets your team battle it out on the field and knock your opponents out of the game. It’s not just a game of accuracy. It’s also about communication, strategy, and plain old teamwork.

24. SunBuggy Las Vegas

Knowing you’re surrounded by sand, why not make the most out of it by going off-road on dune buggies? SunBuggy Las Vegas lets your team go on a bumpy ride with different locations to choose from. You can even try the Vegas Mini Baja Night Chase if you want a more exciting experience, letting you zoom through the sand at night with the twinkling lights of the city at a distance. 

25. Lost Spirits Distillery at Area15

Ending off the list is another unique experience that lets your team sit back, engage, and enjoy the show. Lost Spirits Distillery entertains you with burlesque performances, acrobats, and rides while you enjoy mouthwatering cuisines and tasty cocktails. It’s a fun, colorful playground that will send your team experiencing one attraction after another.

Creating Your Own Engaging Experiences

That’s quite a list, huh? But that doesn’t mean you’ll have to plan all of these experiences one after another. The truth is that team building is not just about these exciting outings. It’s about having a good mix of the memorable and the mundane.

Building trust within your team also takes consistency, especially in the small things. From making recognition a huge part of your team culture to having strong personal relationships within the team, there are small things you can add to your daily routine to make it happen.

Having regular virtual coffee breaks are among the tried-and-tested practices that have made team members more engaged. Using platforms like CoffeePals allows team members to get to know each other better through quick casual chats, eventually paving the way for camaraderie and friendship.
