3. Learn to climb at Trinity Forest Adventure Park

Ropes courses are a classic team building activity, and the Trinity Forest Adventure Park has everything you need for a high-flying adventure on ropes and zip lines. Choose from a variety of workshop options that include up to three hours on the ropes course and a barbecue lunch or dinner. Your team will get to explore up to seven acres of woodland on over 60 elevated platforms, which gives them plenty of opportunities to work together and develop trust and leadership skills.

4. Pedal together with Dallas Party Bikes

For a more laid-back outing, take your team on a ride with Dallas Party Bikes. Their 15-seat bike will take you on a two-hour bar crawl of Dallas’s Deep Ellum neighborhood. The bike is built with a sound system and LED lights, and you can bring your own drinks on board for a fun night out. Choose this option for a get-to-know-you outing that requires your team to work together to make it up the hills! You can also rent multiple bikes for groups of up to 75 people.

5. Make care packages for kids with Idea Fountain

Do something good for the community with a volunteer project hosted by Idea Fountain. You’ll put together care packages that will be delivered to kids at the local children’s hospital.

If you want to combine this with other team building activities, then Idea Fountain has plenty of options to choose from. Some of our favorites include scavenger hunts, robo racers, and charity golf tournaments. In fact, they’ll even bring everything you need to your office or Peerspace venue.

6. Get creative with Texas Wine & Wood

One of the best ways to build team spirit is with an arts and crafts project. Texas Wine & Wood will host your team at their creative studio or bring the equipment to you with a mobile party option. Everyone on your team will get to pick a wooden sign or pallet to paint with their own design. And, of course, you can sip wine while you paint to make for a relaxed social evening. You can also opt for a brunch party while you craft and enjoy bottomless mimosas! Yum!

If you love the idea of sipping wine with your team but prefer a more private setting, then consider booking a Peerspace venue like this modern architectural masterpiece where nature and luxury meet in Oak Cliff. It is a more than 4,000-square-foot upscale home that provides you with a chef’s kitchen, an infinity edge pool, jaw-dropping architecture, and, our favorite part, a 400+-bottle wine room!

7. Host a private paintball game with Gat Splat

Gat Splat offers team building events at their three paintball venues in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. You can rent out their whole venue for an exciting adventure for small and large groups so everyone gets their own personal safety gear and 300 paintballs. Stick around for catered food and drink after the game. Since this venue is indoors, it’s great for enjoying the A/C on a hot summer day!

8. Solve the puzzles at A Room With a Clue

Escape rooms never get old, but if you’re looking for team building ideas in Dallas, you’ll want to find one that has a program specifically for corporate teams. A Room With A Clue is one of the city’s best, with customizable event options at their Deep Ellum facility. Room choices include Doll House, The Ship, The Treehouse, and The Theater. Your group will break up into small teams to solve the clues, and then walk through the room again later to debrief. It allows you to see how the lessons you learned in the game can be brought back to the office!

Another fun creative option is Painting With a Twist, a painting party in which you’ll learn how to paint gorgeous creations while sipping tasty wine. The facilitators offer customized workshop options that are great for a corporate retreat or team building exercise. Choose a collaborative activity in which you’ll work together to paint a large canvas that you can hang in the office later. Paint Your Pet and Trivia Night are other fantastic options for you and the team!

10. Learn collaborative skills with Improv to Improve

Improv to Improve offers team building workshops that focus on skills that make the workplace go ‘round: public speaking, collaboration, thinking on your feet, and more. Request a standalone workshop or make it part of a full-day company retreat. Improv can be intimidating, but this is a fun team building activity that can have a positive impact on your company’s culture.

11. Head outdoors with Canyons and Crags

Make the most of your location in central Texas with a workshop focused on outdoor skills and rescue training. Rich Carlson is an experienced canyoneer who can host a team building event at your Peerspace venue or take your team on an epic outdoor adventure. The Ultralight Rigging and Rescue workshop also focuses on critical thinking and problem-solving under pressure. This is best for groups that already have some outdoor experience and want to level up their skills.

12. Run the obstacle course at DFW Adventure Park

For more of an entry-level adventure, head to the obstacle course and paintball field at the DFW Adventure Park. The instructors will lead you through team building activities that are suitable for all skill levels, while still pushing you gently outside of your comfort zone. Choose from paintball, Airsoft, laser combat, zip lines, and more. This versatile venue is a great setting for all of your epic team building ideas in Dallas, from Capture the Flag to zombie hunts to mud runs!

13. Head to a private retro arcade to battle it out

Classic arcade games have started to seep their way into team building events for companies everywhere. It may be the fact that they bring out a player’s competitive side, or that they make you feel like a kid again. Either way, we love the trend, and think that adding time at an arcade to your team building agenda is a must-do!

Luckily, in Dallas, there are plenty of cool arcades to visit with your team. But when you prefer a more private, bespoke experience, then rely on Peerspace. Use our platform to discover and book arcade venues near you, all with their own ambiance and amenities.

Oh, and this venue is also a fitness training space, so you and your team can use the training mat room to learn martial arts! Sounds like an amazing team building day to us!
