How it Works

Our build-a-boat program is a perfect way to sail your group toward a more compatible team. Using all recyclable materials such as cardboard, rope, and PVC, teams will brainstorm seaworthy concepts and create a blueprint for their vessel. Then they will name it and create a graphic and tagline. Then they coordinate a seaworthy construction, finally bringing it to the edge of the sea (or local pool) for launch. It ends with a splash as teams race the length of the pool to see who can finish first, and avoid sinking. It’s a sea of laughs and fun.

Teams split to build and customize boats out of the materials provided. Sometimes it's a lot of materials, sometimes it's just a few.

Teams Love Us

“We needed something fresh for our weekly happy hour to keep the event fun and interesting. Teamland brought everyone together from around the country to play new games and video chat all in one place. The Teamland experience kept team mates engaged, entertained, casually competitive and most importantly everyone had a great time!”

"Teamland provided a great virtual team building experience for my colleagues. Bingo with a side of trivia was fun for everyone, and Najeeb was a very engaging host. It was great to have the experience contained within a single platform. Looking forward to booking another event with Teamland in the near future!"

"We were looking for options to host a team social party and didn't know what to do. Teamland not only had several options, but they took to the care to respond to me directly and find out what's best for my company. I really appreciate how quickly Teamland got this event planned and running. They took care of all the details and our team simply showed up and played. The team loved the experience and I'd highly recommend Teamland to others!"
