Ultimate team building activities in Montréal
The best teambuilding activities foster camaraderie and collaboration. If you’re looking for the perfect way to bond your team and leave them with an unforgettably exhilarating experience, look no further than some of Montréal’s most thrilling activities.
Right on target
Make sure your group’s aim is true with an activity that’s both fun and precise. DodgeBow combines dodgeball with archery for a fast-paced indoor adventure, while your attendees will master the art of Viking axe-throwing at Rage Axe Throwing Centre. At Laser Game Evolution, players navigate three multi-level mazes that are, at once, obscure and confusing. The force will be strong within with Jedi lightsaber lessons at The Force Academy.
All for one, and one for all
Escape rooms and mazes unite groups in a quest for safe passage to freedom involving puzzles to be solved, mysteries to be cracked, and a race against the clock. Quick minds and teamwork are key to finding freedom from the sealed (and newly renovated!) Escaparium while A/Maze Montréal, Find the Key, and EZKAPAZ offer a variety of hair-raising escape games involving brainteasers and tasks better tackled together than alone. A/Maze even offers a mobile escape car that teams must get started using clues scattered throughout the vehicle that can be transported to any location. Lighter in tone but every bit as entertaining, make your way through the Old Port’s SOS Labyrinthe as either a pirate on the move or a crime-solving detective (check the schedule for the daily themes).
Get teams racing against the clock with Scavenger Hunt Anywhere’s Old Montréal clue-driven tour of the area (ending with a well-deserved meal in one of the area’s fine dining establishments at the finish line), or TEAM Building’s Urban Challenge, modelled after the hit television series The Amazing Race. Teams love racing through the waters in a dragon boat with H2O Dragon Boat. Another option: remain on street level with Canada's first geogaming startup, Walking Brain.
The highest highs!
Fears are best faced together, and Montréal holds a wealth of options to reach brave new heights and overcome some phobias while you’re at it. Fly over the Old Port on the MTL Zipline. Climb at Centre d’Escalade Horizon Roc indoor rock-climbing gym. Take flight at the SkyVenture indoor wind tunnel or let La Grande Roue de Montréal do the heavy lifting and take in the views over the city and St. Lawrence River
The fast and the curious
Let your attendees fulfill their need for speed on La Ronde amusement park’s famous rollercoasters Le Vampire, Le Démon and Le Monstre, the tallest two-track wooden coaster in the world. Those who prefer keeping their feet on firm ground will love Vortex Racing’s virtual driving games, or revel in the chance to fly a B737 in the AeroSim Experience flight simulator, the first of its kind open to the Canadian public. Fans of choppy waters will never forget jet boating the Lachine Rapids with Saute-mouton jet boats, and suggests themed towels as the perfect conference accessory.
