Team Building in Chicago

You and your team are racing down Wacker Drive in Chicago as you head towards your next clue at the Navy Pier. A strong breeze propels the group as you glance behind you to make sure that your team members are right there with you. Just last week you were sitting in an office together, separated by cubicle walls with your headphones on to avoid conversation. Now these are the people who will help you solve the riddle and claim victory. Who knew Tim in Accounting was so good at puzzles?

Now, you can be part of the excitement. This is just one activity that companies from all over the country experience when they enlist Team Builders Plus to help them discover the power of working together to achieve a common goal. Our carefully designed team building activities from more than 20 years of experience in working with small businesses and large organizations help reveal skills co-workers never knew they had. You'll impress your teammates with your leadership, problem-solving, and communication skills – and you'll have some fun as well.

Our Chicago teambuilding activities will take you all over the Windy City as you wear your best detective hat trying to solve a variety of puzzles, wordplay riddles, word ciphers and more. You might dust for fingerprints, hunt for treasure, and read Morse Code, as you charge towards your final destination. You may even search through the Brookfield or Lincoln Park Zoo to solve your next challenging clue. Each teambuilding activity offers different challenges, but the end result will remain the same: You'll get to know co-workers better and be ready to work together back at the office to successfully reach your goals. Here are some of the exhilarating activities we offer in Chicago:

ClueQuest™: The Ultimate Team Building Adventure

Are you a fan of Indiana Jones and other heart-stopping adventure movies? Play the role of intellectual adventurer without the scary snakes with our ClueQuest teambuilding adventure. Taking place in the Field Museum, your team will receive maps to a wide range of clues that will challenge you every step of the way. From reading in Braille and Morse code to solving challenging word puzzles and cyphers, you'll need a sharp mind and the help of your team to find the hidden treasure. Did we mention there would be mummies and dinosaurs?

GeoQuest™: The High Tech Treasure Quest

For GeoQuest, time is of the essence. You will team up with 4-6 of your fellow coworkers to race against other teams using your wits and a hand-held GPS unit. You'll see Chicago like you've never seen it before. You'll discover the exciting, the historical and some downright weird attractions of the Navy Pier and West Loop sections of the city. Along the way, you'll build camaraderie, trust, and connection that will impact the team when you return to the office.

ZooQuest™

A treasure hunt in a zoo you say? That's exactly what you can find when you come out for a Team Builders Plus event at the Brookfield or Lincoln Park Zoo. As you stop and make friends with the lions, bears and gorillas, you'll be asked to solve clues filled with riddles and other puzzles, requiring you to use all of your wit and strategizing skills. With GPS units in hand, the zoo will truly be a place of discovery. You'll have fun, see some beautiful animals and build good team building skills too.
