Keys to Success
This high-spirited, one-of-a-kind hunt challenges teams to locate and open several special lock boxes hidden throughout the event area. Each box contains an essential clue needed to solve the big puzzle and locate the final treasure. Sounds simple enough, right? Well, there’s one slight catch: each box is secured with a different lock, and each team begins the event with only a couple of keys.
So exactly how do you collect all the keys necessary for victory? If you’re alert and have an eye for detail, you’ll discover some on your own. Others can only be secured through shrewd trading with other teams. You’ll have chances to win still more keys in a wild and wacky series of physical challenges. Past events have included rock-paper-scissors, three-legged races, even paper airplane throwing contests — as far as we’re concerned, the sky’s the limit.
This popular team building event helps bring out participants’ sense of humor and spirit of adventure, but you’ll also find yourselves drawing on important skills like organization, negotiation, and teamwork. It’s an extremely effective way to foster esprit de corps while challenging your people to rely on their brains — and their teammates — in a non-threatening, fun and funny context. In short, it’s a change of pace with a purpose.
There’s plenty of room for customization with this event, so we can easily include optional training or debriefing which focuses on whatever subject you choose.
