1. CluedUpp – Real life Clue – an outdoor team building adventure
Come on, admit it – everyone has watched their favourite true crime program and wondered if they would have caught the killer themselves. We all watch the latest series of detective dramas, imagining ourselves in the shoes of the one who figures it all out and saves the day. It’s human nature to try and follow the clues, decide who you trust, and who’d be deserving of another interrogation. Was it the wife all along, is that another red herring, or are you still missing something?
With CluedUpp’s team building activities in Seattle, it’s your opportunity to live the crime solving experience. Your chance for glory. Grab your magnifying glass, your very best trench coat, decide who’s the Dr. Watson to your Sherlock Holmes. It’s time to be a detective for the day.
CluedUpp offer immersive crime solving adventures in and around the Seattle area. Our team building and corporate event experiences combine scavenger hunts with treasure trails, puzzle solving with detective dramas – we provide an escape room experience without the four walls, held wherever you want, however you want.
Our events are tailored entirely dependent on your requirements - whether you’re planning team building for six or sixty, CluedUpp can create the experience entirely for your needs. Your group might be limited on time, and you want to arrange to meet in the grounds of your workplace – a concise and compact event can be created just for you. Or maybe you have a whole day set by and want a detailed and thorough adventure around the centre of Seattle, incorporating a lunch and a few drinks along the way. Each adventure is completely bespoke, meaning no two events are the same and your needs will always be met.
Whatever your time scale, locality, budget or group size, CluedUpp can arrange an event to suit you. Our website provides tons more detail, including why CluedUpp is the perfect activity for your corporate events.
2. WhirlyBall – Give it a whirl!
WhirlyBall – the world’s only mechanized team sport, is an interesting blend of lacrosse and basketball, and is played whilst riding a small electric car called a WhirlyBug. Sound crazy? It is, but it’s a game that’s accessible to anyone and everyone and is definitely a contender for the best team building activities in Seattle.
The WhirlyBall team offer event planning and boast nearly forty year’s worth of experience helping clients to organise and host any occasion. Their package for team building and corporate events includes a ‘Whirly Olympics’ – a competitive day of games including pop-shot, foosball, air hockey and of course their very own WhirlyBall.
They have a handy Round Robin group organisation initiative, centred around team bonding and encouraging everyone to take part. There are even prizes on offer for the most successful teams. When everyone’s in need of refuelling, there’s plenty of dining options to choose from. The WhirlyBall team can help organise a buffet style feast, especially for your team, or you can visit their in-house café and choose from their delicious menu. Whatever your team’s preference, you can bet WhirlyBall have got it covered.

3. Seattle Glassblowing studio – Creative team building in the Seattle area
Seattle Glassblowing studio is a beautiful space, opened by artist Cliff Goodman in 1991 with a mission to introduce glass to the public through the art of glassblowing. They offer a variety of public classes and events, from virtual experiences held online to glassblowing parties in their studio. Depending on the event you’re looking to plan, one of their experiences may suit your team.
The smaller studio classes are suited for groups of up to seven, or custom experiences can also be held for up to 35 people. Your team will have the opportunity to get stuck into glassblowing by entering the ‘hot shop’ and getting hands-on with the artists’ help to create a unique piece of glass work – theirs to take home and keep after it has cooled and cured (normally around 48 hours later).
The team at Seattle Glassblowing can customize packages to fit your group’s needs, and you can discuss possible artistic themes when booking. Typical options include individual moulds, ornaments, seafloats or bowls, and you can even add on a group piece that the artist will create for your team.
As usual, food and beverage options are available to include in your event – take a look at their website to see if it’s the team building event for you.
