Fun Team Building Activities in Long Beach

Nothing builds bonds inside an office like getting together outside of it. Long Beach offers so many fun ways to strengthen your team, from swinging clubs to throwing axes to dodging zombies. Check out these team building options. Go Team!


Golf has traditionally been the go-to game for business relationships, and Birdies n Brews (90 E. Fourth St.) has two golf simulators that allow you to hit real golf balls at the virtual versions of hallowed courses like Pebble Beach and St. Andrews. The simulators can be rented for up to six people. Afterward, relax in the lounge area to watch sports and enjoy craft beer, hard seltzer or cocktails.


No matter the size of your team, you will be able to find an activity or two – or 10 – to enjoy together. Dave & Busters (7515 Carson Blvd.), located at the Long Beach Towne Center, has great food, drinks and, of course, more than 180 games of all types, from sports to virtual reality attractions such as Top Gun and Transformers. Open until midnight Sunday through Thursday, and until 1AM Friday and Saturday, there’s also a host of ultra HD LED televisions to help you unwind together.

Topgolf, the wildly popular driving ranges/lounges have widened their concept into the Swing Suite (500 E. First St.) at the Courtyard by Marriott.

As you play, you can enjoy fantastic food and beverages services in the comfy lounge setting.


Looking to build trust among coworkers? Hand them axes and tell them to start throwing … at a target! Located upstairs in the Pine Square complex in Downtown Long Beach, Bad Axe (245 Pine Ave.) features seven throwing lanes, each with two targets as well as its own throwing coach to go over technique and safety guidelines and also teach some fun games like Cricket and 21.
