If you’re looking for awesome team outing ideas in Atlanta, this list is a great place to start. Make your team outings a regular occurrence and try a new activity each week!
1. Solve the mind-boggling puzzles at Escape the Room.
Escape rooms seem to be having a moment, but you may be surprised how many people have yet to experience one. Even veteran escape-room enthusiasts will appreciate the chance to check out a new game at Atlanta’s top escape room. With several puzzles to choose from, your team can try to break out of an apartment, news room, or rec room. Team up in groups of up to 12 people.
2. Book an incredible Peerspace.
Peerspace is Atlanta’s top online peer-to-peer event venue marketplace. With unique spaces available from local hosts all over the city, you can rent an art gallery, circus school, or a brownstone “castle” that boasts views of the city. Give your team an Instagrammable location to share drinks or host a happy hour event. If there’s something you need that isn’t available via your host, contact Peerspace’s Concierge service. The team can assemble a package for you, complete with catering, bar staff, and A/V equipment rentals.
3. Partake in sports and jump on trampolines at SkyZone.
SkyZone is like an indoor playground for adults, with dodgeball, hoops, volleyball, and more to choose from, all played on foam courses or trampolines for extra fun. With several locations in the Atlanta area, this is a great option for your team to let off some steam after the work day. Tackle the Ninja Warrior Obstacle Course, or rent out all or part of the venue for a private party. You can choose from facilitated team-building activities, too!
4. Play the role of detective at Agatha’s Mystery Theater.
Murder-mystery dinners always make for a fun night out, and Agatha’s Mystery Theater has it all: comedy, mystery, and a five-course dinner menu, including dessert. The current show is called “Murder Impossible: NiteFort Edition,” so you can expect something more exciting than a stodgy reenactment of Clue. With room for up to 170 people in the venue, you can bring your team to a show, or rent out the entire venue for a private performance.
5. Bring out your inner culinary genius with Yes Chef Atlanta.
Put your cooking skills to the test with Yes Chef Atlanta, which hosts corporate team-building exercises and other cooking workshops in a modern industrial kitchen. You can choose from a hands-on cooking challenge, or if you prefer to sit back and watch, enjoy a glass of wine while your instructor demonstrates the process. You can also sign up for a “pay it forward” lesson, which includes a meal for your team and a matching meal designated for charity.
6. Become a stunt driver at Atlanta Motorsports Park.
Atlanta Motorsports Park is a racetrack venue in near the Dawsonville Mountains that offers a range of fast-paced options for your team. You can race go-karts at 55 mph or tackle an ice hill with a tactical driving instructor. They also have country club facilities where you can host a meeting, as well as a workshop, just in case you want to make your team outing an all-day trip.
7. Go climbing at Atlanta Rocks.
Your team may not be ready to free-climb Stone Mountain, but you can learn the basics of rock climbing at the Atlanta Rocks indoor climbing gym. With climbs suitable for every skill level, you can choose from a variety of challenges, including speed climbing, three-handed climbing, and a blindfolded climb. Learn to work together using the belaying system, and conquer your fear of heights. They even offer a “lock-in” program if you want to camp there overnight!
8. Battle zombies at Power Ops Underground Paintball.
The Power Ops Underground Paintball facility has multiple indoor and outdoor fields with over 120,000 square feet of play space. Your team can play airsoft, paintball, or laser tag. Alternative, you all can take part in a corporate team-building workshop. They also offer specially designed games, such as military simulations and “Zombie Annihilation.” This is definitely one of the most epic team outing ideas in Atlanta if you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary.
9. Take a walking tour of CNN Studio.
Atlanta is home to CNN’s worldwide headquarters, so don’t miss your chance to take a tour of the studio. You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at the studio’s history and current broadcasting process on a 50-minute walking tour. Tours are available during business hours throughout the week, and you can extend your visit by booking a private room for corporate functions.
10. Set your sights to the sky at the Delta Flight Museum.
The Delta Flight Museum is located right next to the airport at Delta’s headquarters in Atlanta. The museum has a variety of aircraft on display, including the first Boeing 747 ever built. You can also ride the only industry-grade flight simulator in the country that’s open to the public. If you want to make the most of your visit, choose from one of the museum’s event spaces to host a workshop or banquet. There are massive airplane hangers, as well as smaller meeting room and dining areas built into decommissioned aircraft.
