There’s plenty to do in Las Vegas when you’re a tourist, but what you do with a team that lives and works in Vegas every day? How do you come up with a fun team outing idea that everyone hasn’t already done before? To help you out, we’ve come up with 10 of our favorite team outing ideas in Las Vegas that aren’t just for tourists. They’ll give you a new perspective on the city you live and work in — or get you away from the Strip for an unforgettable day out in the desert!
1. Go off-roading with Sunbuggy ATV rentals
Whether your team is based in Las Vegas, or you’re just visiting the city for a convention, there’s no better way to see Nevada’s natural surroundings than in an ATV or dune buggy. Sunbuggy offers a range of off-road experiences in the Las Vegas area, from a tour through Valley of Fire State Park to daytime and nighttime dune buggy chases. The nighttime experience uses LED light panels for a one-of-a-kind race through the dunes in which everyone is a driver!
2. Rent a unique venue on Peerspace
Peerspace is your go-to option for unconventional team outings in and around the city. Book an offbeat venue to host an office happy hour, or find an event space to host an off-site meeting or company retreat. This is a great option if you’re tired of going to the same places all the time and want to create a team outing all your own. You can even call up the Peerspace Concierge service to customize your rental with a professional caterer or photographer, or by including camera gear and A/V equipment with your booking.
3. Take a tour of Hoover Dam
The Hoover Dam is one of the most impressive structures in the Las Vegas area — yes, even more impressive than Caesars Palace! Take your team on a tour of this engineering feat that’s just a 45-minute drive from the city. The one-hour tour will bring you inside the dam itself to see how the structure generates hydroelectric power. Visit the elevators, tunnels, and power plant, and get a panoramic view of Lake Mead, the largest reservoir by volume in the United States.
4. Go ziplining over Fremont Street at Slotzilla
If you don’t have time to venture far from the city but still want an adventure, take your team to the ride the ziplines at Slotzilla, one of the most exciting team outing ideas in Las Vegas. You’ll have the chance to ride one of two ziplines, including the 11-story-high Zoom Line that will have you flying like a superhero over the crowds at the Fremont Street Experience. Even if you’ve been on a zipline before, there’s nothing like soaring through the heart of Las Vegas!
5. Play with big machinery at Dig This
Las Vegas may not have any beaches, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun in the sand! Head to the sandbox at Dig This, where your team can play with bulldozers, excavators, and other construction machinery. With sessions available for groups of up to 40 people, you can choose from a variety of team-based challenges. But first, you’ll start things off with a safety orientation and breathalyzer test to make sure everyone is fit to drive!
6. Get behind the wheel at SpeedVegas
For a different kind of four-wheeled adventure, hit the racetrack at SpeedVegas for a Cars-style experience. This one-and-a-half mile course just 10 minutes outside of Las Vegas has 12 turns (including a 15-degree banked turn), and an impressive desert backdrop. You’ll also have the chance to rent out 20,000 sq.ft. of space for a corporate party or retreat, making this one of the most unforgettable team outing ideas in Las Vegas for large groups of up to 1000 people!
7. Break office equipment at Wreck Room Vegas
Feeling frustrated with the office fax machine? Take out your frustrations at Wreck Room Vegas, where everyone on your team can smash their least-favorite items with baseball bats! You’ll get suited up with protective gear, including coveralls and face masks, and can choose a variety of items to break, including printers, computer keyboards, speakers, and more. Don’t worry — the items are all sourced from local recyclers, so you won’t be damaging valuable equipment!
8. Visit the Black Canyon on a Raft Tour
Some of the most stunning scenery in Nevada is best seen from the water. A raft tour through the Black Canyon is a great way to get out of the office and explore your natural surroundings. This trip includes transportation from Las Vegas and a three-hour tour on an inflatable raft on the Colorado River. You may see bighorn sheep, osprey, and other wildlife on your tour. You can combine this trip with a visit to the Hoover Dam for an all-day outing.
9. Go horseback riding at Sandy Valley Ranch
The Sandy Valley Ranch is your chance to have an Old West experience only 45 minutes from Las Vegas. You can choose from team-building activities on the ranch, or go horseback riding on over 300 square miles of ranch land. Even better, plan a Cowboy Campout, which includes an overnight stay at a rustic campsite, with a warm campfire and full breakfast provided!
10. Explore nature at Springs Preserve
Want to enjoy a taste of nature, but don’t have time for a camping trip? A trip to Springs Preserve is the next best thing! This 180-acre park is right in the middle of the city, giving your team the chance to learn about the Mojave Desert without venturing too far from home. Your team can explore the Botanical Garden and see native wildlife like the desert tortoise. You’ll also get a glimpse of Vegas as it used to be at Boomtown 1905, a historic exhibit that has a range of hands-on activities and event space for your team outing ideas in Las Vegas.
