These 8 team bonding activities in the Klang Valley will actually challenge your teamwork

From a movie night out to having a gaming session with your colleagues, there are plenty of ways to bond with your team.

However, if you want to challenge your teamwork while you’re at it, here are some activities in the Klang Valley that will do just that.

1. BREAKOUT

Home to immersive escape rooms, BREAKOUT’s puzzle-laden activities are great ways to test you and your team’s camaraderie and teamwork.

BREAKOUT offers team building packages with corporate rates with a minimum number of 20 players or at least two sessions. Small teams can also opt to book through regular means.

There are three BREAKOUT locations around the Klang Valley, with each one offering different experiences and concepts.

There are a variety of rooms and stories to explore at each location. At the Nu Sentral outlet, an interesting one is Perpetual where you’ll be tasked to steal an artefact. It only has a 15% success rate!

The newest room at Avenue K is Post Mortem. The story is set in Kansas, a few days before Christmas, and involves homicide cases.

The Vulcan Post team has experienced some of BREAKOUT’s escape experiences ourselves, with the latest one being its SPY Game, offered at The Curve.

SPY Game involves a very well-fleshed out and interactive plot. It’s a bit more physical compared to the regular escape rooms, plus there’s the element of sneaking around to avoid being caught.

Delegation, trust, and decision-making were some of the skills tested during our SPY Game experience, which you can read more about here.

2. The Bomb Battle

One of the newer activities at Berjaya Times Square, The Bomb Battle is touted as a place where “the world’s largest paint bomb” awaits players. This experience offers immersive mission games as well as the opportunity to get blasted by paint at the end.

The immersive games include some physical challenges like dodging lasers, as well as mental ones such as cracking memory codes.

It involves a lot of cooperative play, which makes this a good one for team building. Things can get quite heated, but it’s all in the name of fun. Gearing up in matching hazmat suits makes for a unique opportunity for interesting team photos, too.

Having experienced this ourselves, we can say that Bomb Battle truly puts communication skills to the test. You can read our full review here.
