If you’re on the hunt for a safe, inclusive and fun activity that everyone will enjoy, then look no further. CluedUpp is an interactive murder mystery experience that will see your team adventure around a location of your choice in Philadelphia, solving puzzles and finding clues as to who the culprit is and what weapon was used. 

In short, it’s like everyone’s favorite board game, but even better. That’s not even the best bit either. You can choose from a variety of themes - Witchcraft and Wizardry, The Ripper, or even CSI - and you don’t need to worry about not knowing the area. 

Using the award-winning smartphone app, which uses geolocation, your team will know exactly where to go, and where they are, following a bespoke map of your chosen area as you uncover clues and track down suspects. No other equipment is needed, and you’re free to move as fast or slow as you like. What’s more, the organizers at CluedUpp make it really easy for you to rearrange your event - whether it’s because of bad weather or Covid-19 uncertainties.

Choose songs from the jukebox, let loose with your air guitar impressions and split off into groups - leaving some people to act as judges - for the ultimate evening of team building in Philadelphia.

Team sports are a great way of bringing colleagues together - whether they know each other well or not. But forget about raft building and water sports. Bubble Soccer is a new and improved activity that will get everyone talking for all the right reasons. 

Hosted by Bump N Play, your group will head off to a soccer pitch that might look like a standard pitch but, in reality, it’s far from normal. Just before the whistle, you’ll be given your kit - a large plastic ball that slots over your head, leaving your arms and legs free.

The same soccer rules apply - you’ll just be safe from any injuries - and tackling and bumping is almost a necessity in this hilarious group activity. Plus, it’s not just a guaranteed laugh, but it’s great for building relationships, letting off steam and will also re-energize and motivate your team when you’re back in the office. 

7. Office Olympics - A fun and physical challenge for all ages

Whether your team is small or you lost count when you got to 150, this activity is a great way to get everyone involved. In fact, there’s a race or challenge for every single colleague.

Hosted in your office or a location of your choice, it’s up to you to come up with a range of games and activities. Think three-legged runs, the egg and spoon race or the space hopper challenge. Then, you need to come up with scoring and prizes and split people up into teams. 

On the day of the event, it’s time to get your war paint on, decide on a few team names and get ready to race against each other. It’s fun, uplifting and a great way to boost communication and get to know other people in your team that you haven't spent much time with. Team chants are a must too.

This is one team building activity for adults in Philadelphia that won’t be forgotten in a hurry. And we bet not many of your colleagues will have done anything like it before. Even better, it can cater for as little as 2 to over 100 people. 

Split into teams, listen to an expert Axe thrower (yes, apparently that is a real thing) as you discover some tricks of the trade and best practice throwing advice. Then, it’s time to put your skills to the test as you launch your axes at a target.

The winning groups will even win a trophy - and bragging rights - and we guarantee your colleagues won’t look at you the same way ever again once they’ve seen your abilities! After a stressful few months at work, there’s no better way to cool off. There’s even a bar for you to enjoy afterwards. Notice how we said afterwards. Axes and alcohol should never mix.
