Want to treat your team to the coolest, nerdiest, tastiest and most thrilling Melbourne team building events this Christmas? Well do we have the list for you! From prison breakouts to hot ballooning to ‘Seglympics’, no matter what kind of team you have you will find some Christmas cheer this year!
HMS Prison Pentridge Breakout is ‘Orange is the new black’ meets ‘Shawshank Redemption’, held in a real prison! Inmates are broken into teams and given fake tattoos, bandanas and orange jumpsuits and encouraged to develop their own gang identity and backstory. The event takes place in the D-Division of the prison, where the last man was executed in the gallows back in 1967. If that’s not creepy enough, your team is actually locked in a cell and has to work together solving strategic challenges to break free! An awesome end-of-year creepy treat that can double for both Christmas and Halloween!
See the beauty of Melbourne from the skies, a truly rare and humbling experience. The basket holds teams of up to 10 so you can split larger groups into several balloons and watch each other soaring through the skies with you. Your team works together to inflate the balloon and deflate it after the flight. Treat your exceptional team this Christmas to a surreal and breathtaking flight. We recommend enjoying a nice lunch together afterwards to discuss your ballooning experiences!
