This is tribal warfare! In this adventure your teams have to work together to overcome physical and mental challenges, to see who earns the title of “CHAMPIONS”. May the best tribe win! A highly vigorous, stimulating exercise based on scavenger hunt principals but including dynamic challenges, and adrenalin pumping activities, you will be challenged to solve complex problems, overcome obstacles, carefully utilise your limited resources and rely upon your teammates for expertise and support.

This adventure can be set up Urupukapuka Island in the beautiful Bay of Islands (just a 40 min ferry ride), or on the mainland – anywhere in Northland!

The teams work towards unraveling clues to match a puzzle – related to your business or corporation. 

  • There is some water, some hills and some good old fashioned fun!
  • For those not physically up to it the team building is adapted to include them and maximise their skills – all still working as a team. 

What DHL had to say…

Our team of approx. 50 were looking for something different and exciting to do for our team building at conference this year. I am extremely lucky that I was passed onto Tracy at Blast as she definitely nailed what we were looking for. The detail Tracy and the team went into to make the team building specific to DHL was awesome. They were very attentive throughout the duration of the activity, helping teams where needed. The feedback from the team has been amazing, with almost everyone mentioning that this was one of the best team building activities we have done (and they have completed a lot of team building activities).

Mission Impossible

Your Mission, if you choose to accept it, is to recover a suitcase which has vital information secreted in it. In this adventure, we challenge your team’s ability to interpret clues, barter, trade and exchange items all whilst trying to overcome barriers and setbacks.  

This journey will take you on an adventure through the Waitangi Treaty Grounds and the surrounding areas.

There is a cast of characters to help you along your way as booby traps, some fine actors, decoys and general good old fashioned fun prevents you from recovering your jewels.  

How good is your team at haggling, stipulating, bargaining and negotiating?

IMG_1289.JPGWhat Te Tai Tokerau Primary Health Organisation had to say…

What an amazing event!!! I have only received positive feedback and I have forwarded onto our staff so they can hopefully provide this to you.

Tracy and her crew were and are amazing!!  Such a well thought out event and really well set up.  I think it gave everyone a chance to get to know aspects of each other we were not aware of, and that is a fantastic.  I know the team has inspired a few people with ideas for games when they have whanau over at Christmas this year 😊

I am so happy everyone got into the spirit of the event and I am really looking forward for us to be able to work together again next year (shall have a word in the bosses ear 😉)  For those who were not able to come, I think the enthusiasm of the comments after the event might inspire them to be available next year – though we will look to have more advance notice for everyone when we do 😊

Oh, and the lunch was YUMMY!!! I wish I could have taken a doggy bag home 😊 

10/10 for everything and biggest thank you!!

Tania 😊
