30 Best Team Building Activities in the Dallas – Fort Worth Metroplex

If you are trying to plan a corporate Team Building Activity in the Dallas – Fort Worth Metroplex you are reading the right article!

 We have compiled a diversified array of incredible Team Building and Team Bonding events and locations all around Dallas – Fort Worth, guaranteed to help your team bond, communicate, and most of all, have fun!

 A little bit of advice before you start scrolling…

 Whether you end up hiring a professional company to create a city-wide scavenger hunt - or you opt for a “do it yourself” activity and simply take your team bowling - just make sure that you pick an activity that breaks you out of your typical silos and allows everyone in your group to get to know each other.

 For instance, if you go bowling, MIX IT UP. Put everyone into smaller groups that don’t typically spend time together. Put Jill from Accounting on the same team with Pete from Product Development so they’ll have an opportunity to bond with one another. Otherwise, you’ll just have the same people having the same conversations – in a different setting. Don’t get us wrong, it’s nice to have a different setting – but it’s even nicer when everyone gets to know each other a bit better. Trust us - it’ll be great for your team’s spirit and camaraderie!

 We hope you get inspired by reading through our 30 Best Dallas - Fort Worth Team Building Activities.

 If you don’t have time to read the entire blog and you need to plan an event, or you would really just like a human being to bounce some corporate retreat ideas off of, feel free to reach out to us at info@feetfirstevents.com, or call (800)393-3338.

 30 Best Team Building Activities in the Dallas – Fort Worth Metroplex

  1. Experience your own Amazing Race in a local neighborhood (the Downtown Dallas Arts District, Fort Worth Stockyards, the Frisco Star, Downtown Grapevine and a bunch of other options…!)

Don’t worry, it isn’t a foot race – and the fastest team isn’t always the winning team. Instead, your teams will strategize how to achieve the most points as you explore a neighborhood.

 Teams solve puzzles, crack codes, and film each other doing a range of hilarious activities including dance moves, reenacting scenes from movies, even staging an epic ninja battle!

 Beat the other teams while discovering the city in a creative and very memorable way…!

  1. Share Laughs with the Game Show Extravaganza!

Let’s face it, there are a lot of pub trivia nights or trivia gameshows, and we have tried many of them. This one stands out-- as it is hosted by some highly energetic, hilarious hosts - and the experience is extremely interactive!

 Rather than having individual contestants, the Game Show Extravaganza has everyone competing in Teams – which makes it a lot more interactive and FUN! The show includes several games including Jeopardy, Trivia, Family Feud and Minute to Win It!

 You can also include customized content with questions about your company, products, even the participants themselves! By adding inside jokes about your group, everyone feels like they are a part of the show. You will have a blast as you compete to be the Game Show Champions!


  1. Take your group to a park and participate in Survivor Games!

Before you get too concerned, in our version of Survivor Games, no one gets voted off the island – and we promise you don’t have to be athletic to be successful in this event. Instead, we have taken our experience as consultants for the Survivor TV show, and we have designed a series of challenges that will give each team an opportunity to test the mental and physical strengths of its members in a highly amusing fashion!

 You might be launching Rubber Chicken over 100 feet using three-person slingshots; or using Pedometers to count your steps as you form Human Bobsleds. You might compete in a “Muscle Build” Dance-Off wearing a giant onesie filled with balloons. Or you can test your vocabularies with Giant Words with Friends!  

 We can also include Company Trivia Bonus Points and Spirit Points – to keep the competition lively at all times! This program usually lasts about two hours, with a super-fun awards ceremony at the end of the challenges.

This an amazing opportunity to bond with your coworkers while giving back to a local charity. The event itself is extremely high-energy and interactive, with teams competing in short, fast-paced - and hilarious challenges!

 In addition to winning points for each challenge, the teams also win items to create Care Packages or parts to build a variety of items that will ultimately be donated to a local charity.

 You can choose from a variety of items for many different charities, including Household Items, Personal Hygiene Items and Non-Perishable Foods for Local Homeless Shelters or Military Families, Wheelchairs for Senior Centers, Bicycles or Backpacks with School Supplies for Boys & Girls Clubs.

 Your group will have a great time playing the games during the event – but it will also prove to be a very moving experience for everyone involved when the items are donated to a representative from the charity at the conclusion of the program.
