Working in a Virtual Team does not mean that your group has to stop all essential team building experiences. Take part in our Virtual Amazing Race from the convenience of your own personal working space, anywhere in the world! Explore, learn, create and be challenged together as you travel (virtually) to some of the most interesting and exotic locations around the globe using the power of online communication.
Teams take part in a virtual race to secret locations around the world. Using a combination of easily accessible programs such as Zoom Meetings and Google Earth. Teams will be connected in real time as they solve cryptic clues which lead them to famous landmarks in different countries and cities through Google Earth. In each location, teams will be tasked to complete a variety of challenges and fact finding missions in order to receive the whereabouts of the next location. Only the quickest and most efficient working teams will be able to reach them all and get to the finish point in time. The lively hosts will be with you the whole time tying everything including your teams, together.
Pricing is based on teams of 5. Minimum group size is 5. Maximum group size is 50. For larger groups please consult Making Teams about consecutive events. Smaller teams can be arranged at an additional price per extra team, please see pricing table.
Location & Duration
This event is staged using a combination of ‘Zoom Meeting’, ‘Google Earth’ and a selection of websites, all of which are easily accessible or free to download. Making Teams will require the email addresses of all planned participants prior. A week before the event is scheduled we will send each participant an invitation via email containing all instructions and links. Making Teams highly suggests installing the relevant programs and using a desktop or laptop for full experience. Tablet and smart phone access is possible but will contain less functionality.
On the day of the event and once everybody has joined, your host will explain the proceedings and how everything will work. Your host will be giving teams a globetrotting story and cryptic clues. Teams will be preassigned and put into individual ‘Team breakout rooms’ where they can discuss and delegate tasks. Each set of cryptic clues, location and challenge will be under time limit. Once the time is up the teams are sent back to the main chat where the host will see who could complete in time.
Total time for the event is between 3 – 4 hours.
For the Virtual Amazing Race, teams will be presented with a combination of active challenges, passive challenges and games to complete as they traverse the virtual race route.
- Cryptic cultural challenges – Teams are tasked with solving puzzles by finding information that is hidden within Google street view or information available about the selected location – including language, music, customs, popular culture and much more.
- Cultural games – Teams are tasked to take part in challenging teambuilding games designed to be played in a virtual classroom setting.
- Active cultural challenges – Teams are tasked with interacting with a local artisan or practitioner in real time video chat in order to complete a challenge, such as learning Muay Thai from an instructor in Bangkok or learning to draw traditional Japanese calligraphy in Tokyo.
Your host will be tallying scores for which team finds the information first and declaring the virtual race winner.
