The Not So Traditional Ways to Team Build

The Not So Traditional Ways to Team Build

19th May 2014

The problem with a lot of team building exercises is that they are just a bit too boring and uneventful to make much of a lasting impact. Let’s face it, seminars are a bit dull and many of the traditional exercises just make most of the participants feel uncomfortable. It doesn’t have to be this way though as here are just a few ideas that are not only great fun but are also capable of getting your team functioning like a well-oiled machine.

Hovercraft Experiences

Controlling a hovercraft is exhilarating, challenging and incredibly exciting. This is an experience that is going to have all your team engrossed as they try to master the basic controls of this craft. The really fun part comes when learners try to negotiate their way around a specially designed obstacle course. There is usually a sense of competiveness among participants, but it requires a team effort to get the most out of this experience. If you have always wondered what it would be like to control a hover craft, you can find out more information from us right here at Hoverdays.

Zombie Experiences

Is your team ready for the zombie apocalypse? If the answer is ‘no’, you are not only taking a risk, but you are also missing out on a wonderful team building exercise. During a Zombie Experience, you get to learn how to defend yourself against these walking dead, and your team then gets to test their skills against a real zombie attack. Prepare now before it is too late – all your team will be indebted to you once the apocalypse comes. Zombie Experiences has events in a number of locations in the UK.

Sumo Wrestling Experiences

Your team is sure to experience a strong sense of camaraderie as you learn the ancient skills of sumo wrestling. Don’t worry – no limbs are going to be broken because you are going to be wearing special inflatable sumo suits. This team-building exercise is hilarious to watch, and it really allows people to relax with one another. The Sumo Experience is based in Surrey, but they can provide this experience at a location of your choice.

Blindfold Driving

It takes a lot of trust to be willing to drive around an obstacle course while wearing a helmet that is completely blacked out. In order for this to work, you need to have faith in your team member who is going to be guiding you through the process. Learning to trust each other is vital in order for a team to run smoothly, and this package will teach this. Blindfold driving is available from here at Hoverdays.


Who says enjoying nature should require sleeping on a hard surface in a tent that is a bit claustrophobic. Glamping is a way to enjoy the great outdoors in style and D3active offers an interesting package that includes glamping and team-building exercises.
