Why this event?

The Adventure Quest is a customized, map-based meta-puzzle infused with a bit of tech magic that the entire group must solve. The treasure hunt team building game mimics a successful workplace dynamic where smaller teams must first accomplish their tasks before the entire company can realize its goal. Rather than use a lecture or classroom setting to teach these concepts, we get your group out and moving to infuse the experience with action and fun. The treasure hunt team building activity combines old fashioned map reading with augmented reality clues that the entire team must solve. As in the workplace, smaller teams must succeed at their tasks before the entire company can reach its goal – opening the treasure-filled chest!

The object of the Adventure Quest treasure hunt team building game is to find the key to the treasure-filled chest. Customized with company-based clues your team has a unique experience that no other activity can offer. Some clues can only be acquired when the group completes a team challenge. Each team soon realizes that the only way to complete the adventure is by working together as a whole. The excitement builds to a crescendo as all sub-groups now join forces to find the key.

And (SPOILER ALERT!) since everyone contributes to the success of this search, all get to share in the treasure as everyone wins! This can be a token or memento of your meeting, a t-shirt emblazoned with your company or event slogan, or whatever you desire.


Team size
  • 20 – 1,000
Time needed
  • 2 - 3 hours
Space requirement

We will need an indoor room for the intro and debrief that has tables and chairs for each team, but the majority of this activity will be done outside whenever possible. If the weather is a problem, we’ll be happy to identify alternate rain sites within your hotel or conference center.

Ideal for
  • Conferences
  • Retreats/Annual events
  • New project kick-off
  • Team restructuring

We need a full day of prep the day before to design the map and to customize the event for your needs. We can do these anywhere, from a meeting room in a conference center to a local park. We’ve even done this event on a beach on Hainan Island, China for Chevron’s China Energy.

Let's talk.

For more than 25 years, we’ve been helping teams like yours enhance open communication and build team camaraderie. If you want to rekindle the bonds your team once shared, or you’re assembling a new virtual team for the post-pandemic world, we are here to help.
