Is your business headed to Dallas, Texas for a conference? Planning fun activities that keep employees engaged is crucial to developing rapport and trust among your team. Here are 7 ideas you may not have thought of for some fun and different ways for your team to spend time together in the Big D!
1. Dallas Axe Throwing
Located in Richardson, Texas, Dallas Axe Throwing is a great place to let off steam as a group. Your team can do their best Paul Bunyan during a 1.5-hour session, during which you’ll learn how to throw an axe, practice throwing it at a target, and finally compete against one another. Each lane can accommodate up to 12 people at a flat rate of $280. Contact Dallas Axe Throwing for more information on booking for your team. Oh, and Dallas Axe throwing is BYOB — no hard liquor, please!
2. iFly Indoor Skydiving

3. DFW Scavenger Hunt
Think “Escape Room” without being cooped up indoors. The DFW Scavenger Hunt is great for locals and out-of-towners alike. With different hunts available in Plano, Frisco, Downtown Dallas, plus a special Holiday Hunt in Downtown Dallas, you can challenge your employees to work together and solve puzzles and challenges around the city. They can even put together a custom hunt for your conference attendees. Contact DFW Scavenger Hunt for more information.
4. Big D Dallas Trolley Tours
Travel back in time to 1963 and take the same route that JFK’s motorcade took the day that he was assassinated. Or, opt for a fully narrated 80-minute City of Dallas Tour. Big D also offers the city’s only trolley tour where you can feel free to hop on and off at any of their 14 stops around the city, picking up where you left off. Big D Fun Tours are a great way to see the city during the day before a Nightly Spirits tour in the evening.
5. Golden Apron Cooking Classes
What better way to bring a team together than by cooking up some fun? Golden Apron can put together a private team building event for your company. Whether it’s sushi, paella, pasta, tapas, your group will have a great time putting together their own dinner in a BYOB environment. Check their upcoming Dallas classes or message the Golden Apron team to put together a custom event.
6. Group Dynamix Team Building
Group Dynamix is a one-of-a-kind indoor team building facility in Carrollton, Texas, and at 38,000 sq ft., is said to be one of the largest of its kind in the nation.

7. Dallas Nightly Spirits Ghost Tour
We’re a little biased, but there’s simply nothing like the Dallas Nightly Spirits Ghost Tour. Join your guide at Green Door Public House and start your tour with a stiff drink and an eerie tale or two. Your tour guide will lead you through downtown while sharing the best ghost stories in Dallas. See pubs with dark pasts, and hear tales of murder, mystery and mortals that met an untimely end. Tours depart Thursday through Sunday, lasting about 2.5 hours, which provides plenty of time to call on the spirits among us… and the spirits in our glasses! If you have a fun-loving crew who isn’t scared easily, then join us for a private Nightly Spirits tour, which can accommodate groups from 2-200+ .
