HOW TO ASSEMBLE YOUR PERFECT TEAM EVENT
We make building a great team event as easy as possible.
Just provide us with a few key details and let us handle the rest!
Where is your event taking place? We offer a variety of options in each location. In many cases we can customize starting & finishing points for your chosen adventure route.
INSIDE OR OUTSIDE
Do you want to embrace the elements with a dynamic outdoor event, or do you want to stay indoors & explore a venue? We can also bring an adventure to your office or meeting place.
Would your team rather “unplug” with one of our tried and true pen & paper based adventures or try out one of our new interactive iPad versions? We can help you decide which would be best suited for your team.
How long is the event you are planning? We offer a full spectrum of events, from a fun social interaction for the group (2.5 hours) to a full day deep learning workshop.
Tis the season for planning your holiday staff outing!
HOLIDAY OPTIONS INDOOR AND OUT
We have the perfect lead-in to your staff holiday lunch, dinner, or party. We have both indoor and outdoor options for you this year.
Our new Holiday LEVEL Up game is a holiday infused version of our great team building icebreaker. Packed with questions, challenges and loads of fun - teams have five levels to work through, with each passing level becoming more and more complex.
For those ready to embrace the great outdoors, our Holiday REVEAL game is a lighter version of our puzzle-based adventures. It’s centered on fun, creativity, and trivia of the season. Teams of 4-6 participants engage in a series of holiday themed challenges trying to outdo each other’s holiday spirit at every turn. Your staff outing will get an injection of energy right from the start.

TORONTO TEAM BUILDING
The Conundrum Difference-A Primer on Selecting the Right “Scavenger Hunt” Vendor
You’re looking at organizing a Toronto team building event for your team. The good news: you have a lot of good options from which to choose. The bad news: you have to choose between them. The first step is to decide which type of activity will appeal most to your group and achieve the objectives you’ve set for your event.
If you figure a “scavenger hunt” or "amazing race" type event will suit your purpose, we would like to help simplify your decision on how to proceed. Essentially, here are the 3 options you have when organizing your event:
1. DIY – You can assign someone at your company to create a “homemade” scavenger hunt. This can be a good choice if your company has little or no budget with which to work. The downside is that its quality will be dependent on the person(s) assigned to create it and the actual time they have available to put it together. In most cases, you can expect a fairly standard hunt that will closely resemble other DIY hunts participants have done in the past. It may turn out to be fun, but won’t have any special teambuilding focus beyond getting people out together.
2. Cafeteria-style provider – You can hire a “general” Toronto team building company to run your hunt. By “general” we mean companies that offer myriad types of teambuilding programs (scavenger hunts, picnics, corporate Olympics, cooking events, etc.) If choice is your main criteria, then this is the place to shop; however, just be aware that, as with anything, the more varieties on offer, the less quality you tend to get with each offer. When you’ve decided a scavenger hunt type event is the route you want to go, these types of providers may not prove to be the best choice. Their hunt event may still be fun or well-run, but from our experience, they do not compare to the experience provided by companies who specialize in one type of event.
3. Niche provider – You can hire a company who focuses on the type of event you’d like to plan for your team. For scavenger hunt/amazing race/puzzle based events, Conundrum Adventures is that type of company. Unfortunately, when comparing “scavenger hunt” quotes from different vendors, many clients treat the product as a commodity, and instead of recognizing the unique aspects of various offerings, focus only on price or other secondary factors. In fact, the quality, type, and format of these events can vary widely. By focusing on one type of teambuilding activity, we are able to provide an experience that is unique, meticulously thought out, professionally organized and executed, and competitively priced.
How do we know our hunts are unique? Well almost everyone has been part of a “scavenger hunt” at some point. We prefer to call our hunts “urban adventures”, as they are not scavenger hunts in the traditional sense of the term. In 16 years of hunts, we have never had a participant say anything remotely similar to “I’ve done that before” (unless of course, we are talking about a repeat client!). The reason is simple: we spend more time and energy developing our “scavenger hunts” than any other Toronto team building company. We don’t just spend a few hours scouting city puzzle locations and developing our specialized puzzles - we spend days, weeks, and months. It’s what we do, and considering the feedback we get from clients, we seem to be pretty good at it.
Each event we run is planned in detail. We do not use a boilerplate formula for our events. From starting point to finish location and everything in between, every event is well thought out and tailored to deliver the best client experience possible – not just for the group as a whole – but for each individual participant. When we see hunts conducted with teams of 10 members or more we shudder – that might be convenient and cost effective for the hunt provider, but it ignores the right of every participant to be involved and active with their team in a meaningful way.
When your staff arrives at a Conundrum event, they are not greeted by a part-time student host, but rather one of the Principles of the company. It enables us to stay close to our product, to learn from our participants, to deliver a professional event, and to put our very best foot forward to ensure a great experience for our clients.
Even with all of these advantages, we recognize that price is often an important consideration in the vendor selection process. That’s why we ensure that our pricing is competitive with other vendors – both “cafeteria style” and other “niche” competitors. This way, we ensure our clients are getting great value for their teambuilding budget.
If you’re considering getting your team together for a fun scavenger hunt type event (with or without an overt teambuilding focus), we hope you take these considerations into account and take a few moments on our site to learn about our offerings. We’d love a chance to show you firsthand how The Conundrum Difference can benefit your team.
