  • Details
    Business and human resource personnel see ShadowLand's arena adventures as powerful teambuilding and corporate training opportunities. Strap on a light-weight, high-tech suit and enter the 7500sqft multi-level, fog-filled carpeted arena for the adventure of a lifetime! Ramps, catwalks, bridges and passageways are throughout the arena - making a one-of-a-kind landscape to hold your team-building session. Where else can up to 250 people from your company take part in a measureable, exciting, 'whole-group' activity? ShadowLand stands apart from other group outing destinations. Your team members choose a code name and are assigned to a team. The team learns details about the adventure (a software-controlled game scenario that influences and challenges them within the arena). In the briefing room the team has time to discuss a team strategy. (Should you wish, you can have observers in the arena during these corporate team sessions to make notes.) The participants get their adrenaline flowing as they battle other teams as well as hardware elements in the arena to advance their individual and team scores in the adventure. There are multiple scenarios to choose from should you want your team to focus on the importance of a particular team skill (leadership, valuing diversity, communication, etc.). At the end of each adventure, everyone gets a scorecard that details individual and team performance. Coupled with a debrief from your HR observer (optional, of course), you have created one of the most exciting, insightful team building sessions available in the country.
