Team Building Programs

Our Team Building programs offer groups the opportunity to work through challenges with specific learning outcomes in mind. Our facilitators will tailor the activities to your team, allowing them to take the lessons they’ve learned on the course back to the office, classroom, and real life.

Express Courses

Express Courses provide two hours of low-risk challenges in an open-field setting. Great option for groups looking to pair a challenge course with another activity at the FSU Rez, such as a picnic or paddling excursion.

(1-2 Hours)

Escape Room

You and your team are master safecrackers. Today’s challenge: a bank heist at the heavily guarded Valley Isle National Bank under surveillance. When the 60 minute timer starts ticking, you are tasked with cracking the bank vault and escaping with the loot. The security system has been successfully shut off for 55 minutes. When 5 minutes remain, the cops will be notified, and the pressure is on. Our portable escape room is part scavenger hunt, part puzzle-solving, and ALL fun. Will you beat the clock and escape? 

The “team building” package includes a 60 minute escape room experience and a debrief by one of our Challenge course facilitators. The debrief will allow your group to focus on the team building components of the escape room. Upon escaping successfully, your team will be able to reflect on how to use these learning outcomes throughout everyday tasks. 

Recommended number of players:  5-10 people (up to 10 people) 

Low Challenge Courses

Low Challenge Courses provide low-risk challenges in a combination of field and wooded settings. Low challenge activities are the foundation for building effective teamwork and may incorporate balancing, jumping, or climbing on special structures. Each activity can be adapted to accommodate most ability types, and participant safety is supervised by trained facilitators.  During the program, time is taken to discuss the experience and relate the experiences back to “real world” situations.

Zip Jump

Zip Jump Rental:

This ain’t your grandma’s zip line. Our Zip Jump takes the excitement of zip line and pairs it with the adrenaline rush of a quick rappel.  After you climb up our 40 ft tower you will have two choices, our Ripper or our TruBlu. Our Ripper involves one big step into thin air, followed by a 10 foot freefall.  After the free fall your rope tightens up and the ride ends with big swing down the ground level.  If you are not feeling the free fall option, our TruBlu begins to lower you as soon as you step off of the platform, resulting in a longer, more scenic ride down to the ground. The Zip Jump Rental is 3 hours allows for members of your group to do each option as many times as they would like.

*For participation in Zip Jump activities, participants must weigh under 280 pounds, be at least 8 years old, and be able to appropriately fit into our safety equipment.  Please contact us with any questions your group members may have.

Giant Swing

The Giant Swing Rental:

If the swings were your favorite activity at the playground, then you are going to love ours! Your adventure begins by climbing up our 40 ft tower.  Upon reaching the top, our facilitators will clip you into The Giant Swing which puts your average playground swing to shame. Our nickname for it is “The Breath Taker,” and for good reason. Next comes one little hop off the platform and a giant 95 ft pendulum swing into the canopy. It is sure to take your breath away! The Giant Swing Rental is 3 hours in length and allows for members of your group to participate as many times as they would like.     

*For participation in The Giant Swing activity, participants must weigh under 280 pounds, be at least 8 years old, and be able to appropriately fit into our safety equipment.  Please contact us with any questions your group members may have.
