1. Design your own team building outing at a Peerspace venue
Peerspace is your go-to option to host your own customized team-building ideas in Denver and beyond. From multilevel loft spaces with stunning rooftop views (pictured above) in the city to private retreats surrounded by nature, this is a great way to pick and choose your activities and design your own team-building retreat.

It’s the most comprehensive and simplest way to design a one-of-a-kind team building event in Denver!
2. Tackle the obstacles at the Warrior Challenge Arena
The Warrior Challenge Arena offers gladiator-style team-building programs to energize your team. You’ll complete challenges, such as crossing the room without touching the floor (while balancing on yoga balls!). All of the Warrior Challenge Arena’s activities will test your collaborative skills. The arena has ropes, nets, mats, and more, giving you plenty of materials to work with for a one- to three-hour activity session. You can also add a professional development workshop to your outing.
After warrior-ing it up all day, head down to this eclectic modern cocktail lounge in Highland for hand-crafted cocktails and camaraderie. This stunning space includes an L-shaped bar, two standing bars, and a lounge indoors as well as two outdoor patios.
3. Practice your aim at Archery Games
This isn’t the kind of archery you’ve seen in Robin Hood: these arrows have foam tips, making them perfect for archery dodgeball. Take your team to Archery Games, where anywhere from six to 80 people can play a variety of team building games with bows and arrows. Event facilitators will lead your group through the activities.
Afterward, bring your own food and drink, or choose one of their recommended caterers for a light lunch at the indoor picnic area beside the arena. They serve beer and wine onsite, so that’s a must-have team builder right there. After all, you and your team have earned a glorious feast with food and wine after an afternoon at Archery Games!
4. Get in sync with each other at Peak Rhythms
Making music together is one of the best bonding activities you can do as a team. Schedule a workshop with Peak Rhythms to build teamwork and boost creativity. Peak Rhythms will bring the drums for a percussion-based musical experience.
Great for groups of up to 3,000 people, this activity can be designed to last anywhere from 15 minutes to three hours. Your team will learn about instruments from a variety of cultures and enjoy the relaxing, healing power of music. Peak Rhythms also offers virtual team building sessions, in case that serves you and your group better.
5. Solve the puzzles at Escape Works Denver
Escape Works is one of the area’s best escape rooms, centrally located in downtown Denver. Break your team up into groups of up to 12 people. Each team will have an hour to solve clues and break codes in one of five different escape rooms, including an Egyptian tomb and a casino heist. Afterward, you’ll evaluate how you did and see the roles that different members of the team fall into. You can also opt to join a virtual escape room. Bring the lessons back to the office to improve your workplace performance!
According to one reviewer who brought their team here: “Great experience for a team-building outing! Kyle was a great host and made sure we all enjoyed our experience. His picture-taking skills were also appreciated! Highly recommend this location! Also, parking isn’t hard. Lots of street parking and a parking lot right next door.“
6. Sample wines at the Infinite Monkey Theorem
For a more active alternative to happy hour, take your team to the Infinite Monkey Theorem, where you can book a tour and tasting of Denver’s local urban winery. This isn’t your typical vineyard: Infinite Monkey Theorem takes a creative approach to the wines they make. Your team will get to taste the wines, and see how they’re kegged, bottled, and even canned. This makes for a relaxed team-building idea in Denver with plenty to learn along the way!
Looking for a private option? Then head over to this Five Points well-equipped downtown theater space. It’s great for more traditional team building activities, thanks to the stage, A/V equipment, and seating for 80. However, thanks to its full bar, optional karaoke package (!), and outdoor patio, it can also be a great space to kick back after you complete your activities.
7. Play tabletop games at GameWorks
One of the easiest ways to build team spirit is to play games together. From Xbox One to PC-based games, Denver GameWorks has countless esports games to choose from. Plus, it’s in a pub, so you get to share great food and drink while you play your favorite board games. Book the whole venue for a private team-building event. Staff will be on hand to help you choose the best games for your group and learn to play.
After all that heart-pumping action, you and your team may need a place to relax and unwind. If so, consider this curated urban home in Jefferson Park as an option. This lovely private abode offers you an elegant, inviting setting to discuss the day in a chill setting. Plus, for a small extra fee, the host also provides snacks and allows guests to bring their pets!
8. Beat the odds at Denver Casino & Poker Rentals
For a different kind of game night, host a casino night at your retreat space or Peerspace venue. The team at Denver Casino & Poker Rentals will bring their professional quality casino games to you, including blackjack, poker, and roulette. Dealers will be on hand to facilitate the games, and everyone on your team will get chips that they can redeem at the end of the night for prizes.
We like the idea of hosting your casino night at this stunning and historic distillery and pub in Baker. Here, you can make use of the staffed bar, PA system, patio, and kitchen. This is one of the most fun team building ideas in Denver that’s suitable for groups of all sizes.
Plus, this historic distillery also has plenty of rave reviews from past Peerspace renters! Here is just one example: “This venue amazing! The host is very accommodating. The bar staff is friendly and give good recommendations. The area is amazing and even though it’s on Broadway parking wasn’t too hard to find. My friends raved about the staff after my party. Thank you for allowing us to use your space.”
9. Go on a geocaching quest with CBST Adventures
Spend time in the great outdoors with a team building workshop hosted by CBST Adventures. They offer a variety of challenges, including Olympic-style games, ropes courses, slacklining, archery, kayaking, and more. One of the most exciting is the GPS Orienteering Quest, which requires each team to navigate to outdoor locations via GPS and complete creative activities along the way. You’ll learn to find your way together and make decisions as a team.
10. Build bikes for local school kids with Wish for Wheels
Give back to your community with a team building workshop hosted by Wish for Wheels, which provides bikes to children at Denver public schools. Their goal is to donate bikes and helmets to every second-grader in the school system. As part of the workshop, you’ll assemble bikes while taking part in challenges, such as being blindfolded or answering trivia questions while you build the bikes. Learn to work together while doing something good for Denver school kids.
11. Take a spin on a bike bar with Pedal Hopper
Finally, why not take a tour of Denver on a 16-seater bike with Pedal Hopper? You can bring up to 112 people on multiple bikes for a bar crawl or BYOB experience. Everyone will have to pedal together in order to get to the next stop! This is one of those fun team building ideas in Denver that requires more effort than a typical happy hour but is still chill enough for some quality bonding time.
Feeling even more adventurous? Then book time at this super unique and large parkour facility in Louisville that boasts trampolines, obstacles, a foam pit, and A/V gear for a fun and action-packed event! Plus, the hosts allow outdoor catering, which the Concierge service can set up on your behalf.
