Looking for a corporate team building activity with a touch of class and a dose of high-speed adventure? Then a treasure hunt in a stretched limousine is what you’re after. This corporate team building adventure promises you a heart pumping, interactive ride as you race through the streets of Atlanta.

In a nutshell, the basic package includes a chauffeur-driven limousine, digital cameras, and a scavenger hunt list. Basically, it includes the elements of a typical scavenger hunt: clues, puzzles, maps, lists, passwords.

However, this is not your typical average treasure hunt. There’s a time limit, and since you’re in a limo, this team building activity is designed to cover a lot of ground – literally. Team members not only have to strategize and figure out the most efficient route but they have to be decisive as well, as the clock will be ticking fast. They will also need to bring their heads together in choosing which items to prioritize. Should they go after the small point but easy to do task, or the big point but difficult one?

Since you’ll be directing your chauffeur through your own desired route, team members will have to take into consideration a number of variables. Traffic flow is one of them.

The activity is not simply programmed to give you a constant adrenaline rush, as you can also sit back and enjoy the luxurious ride in between tasks; all in the cozy enclosure of your limo. You can expect to be driven through historical spots, landmarks or chic hotels, bars and restaurants on your way to picking up items on your list, solving puzzles or going to the next required spot on the map.

The hunts can be customized to fit your organization or your own objectives. The ride can be through plush establishments or through eco-friendly sceneries as parks and zoos or through more culturally inclined landmarks such as museums. For those who are not familiar with the Atlanta terrain, here are some notable locations: For indoor spots, there is the Georgia Aquarium, Underground Atlanta, SciTech, and The Atlanta Museum of Fine Arts. Outdoors, there’s Stone Mountain Park, Six Flags Over Atlanta, Atlanta Botanical Gardens and Unicoi State Park.

Stopping by significant spots, you can click away and collect photos as you capture the moment when you find a required item or simply complete a required task. When the day is done, you can keep the photos as a treasure to remind you of that once-in-a-lifetime fun-filled treasure hunt.

This stylish corporate team building activity is a favorite of big companies who recognize the moral boosting benefit that it offers. Most organizations that have booked this hilarious team building activity did it to celebrate achieved successes, a team bonding experience, as a kick offs to training sessions, or sales conferences.

Corporate team building in Atlanta is beneficial for any company and can be an adhesive to keep team members glued together. Some of the benefits of Atlanta corporate team building include improving communication skills, boosting team morale, developing problem solving skills, promoting teamwork and leadership skills, and most of all, having lots of fun while learning.

Below are four types of team building activities that you can utilize when doing team building in Atlanta. These are personality, skills, activity and problem solving-based team building techniques. The personality-based team building focuses on learning one’s own personality as well as the personalities of fellow team members. In the skills-based team building, team members undergo workshop sessions where they will learn leadership skills that can be applied in the workplace. In problem solving-based team building, team members identify problems that the team experiences, and then they give an apt solution for it.

Perhaps the most exciting of these types of corporate team building activities is the activity-based team building, wherein the team members participate in challenging tasks done in indoor or outdoor settings.  In these cases, team members are given an avenue to build up team camaraderie in a creative way.

One of the most popular methods of activity-based team building is through treasure hunts, which are done often in Atlanta. There are different themes for treasure hunts which add variety. One of them done in Atlanta is the Space-Time Treasure Hunt, which is an exciting time traveling twist for an Atlanta team building activity.

In this treasure hunt, the 2013 team is said to be contacted by top executives from the same company, but from the year 2063. The 2063 team asks the current team to send them information and products from 2013 that they might be able to use to create innovations in the future. The goal of the team, then, is to photograph these products and begin an inter-time collaboration with the 2058 team members. This team building activity is good for 8 to 200 people, divided into 5-10 people per  groups, and will last for about 3-4 hours.

Another popular corporate team building Atlanta activity is the Amazing Adventure Hunt, wherein the team will embark on an expedition to discover rare life forms. The teams explore makeshift (imaginary) wilds in search of the legendary beast. By answering questions, taking photographs, recording audio, making sketches, and gathering artifacts, the team will be able to identify and find the mythical creature.  Each team will then report their findings to the other teams, which is a way to practice communication skills and creative problem solving as well as presentation skills.

The Limousine Treasure Hunt is another variation of treasure hunts.  In this Atlanta team building activity the teams ride in a limousine that will enable them to navigate a treasure hunt map full of clues and city points of interest. Talk about fun, learning  and excitement in a corporate team building activitiy. Around 10-150 participants can book for this activity, which will last for about 4 hours.  This treasure hunt team building activities encourages strategic thinking, and promotes effective group decision-making.
