Team building activities play a crucial role in fostering collaboration, boosting morale, and unlocking the potential of a team, and what better way to achieve these goals than amidst the exciting environment of Sunway Lagoon? Located in the heart of Klang Valley, Sunway Lagoon offers an ideal setting for teams to come together, bond, and enhance their synergy. In this blog post, we will take you through our comprehensive itinerary of a 3-day, 2-night team-building experience at Sunway Lagoon, where your team will embark on an adventure that will strengthen relationships, promote communication, and unlock untapped potential.
Before heading to Sunway Lagoon, let’s enjoy a team-building “appetizer” at Putrajaya. Here, you will board the cruise and embark on a 45-minute journey on Putrajaya Lake. The Cruise Tasik Putrajaya provides a unique opportunity to appreciate the architectural beauty and landmarks such as Putra Mosque and Perdana Putra.
The cruise is fully air-conditioned, and the tour is accompanied by commentary on the landmarks and sights. Enjoy the leisurely cruise while taking in the picturesque scenery of Putrajaya. Don’t forget to take a 📸group photo at the deck where the lighting is the best.
After the cruise, your team will be transferred to Sunway Lagoon Hotel. A transportation mode will be arranged to take you guys from Cruise Tasik Putrajaya to the hotel. Once you reach Sunway Hotel, you will proceed with the registration process, which involves providing the necessary information and completing any required paperwork for check-in, and then you can get your key!
After that, it’s free and easy for about 3 hours. You can freshen up and explore the hotel and its facilities. Whether it's taking a dip in the pool, indulging in a spa session, or simply recharging in the comfort of your room.
Alternatively, if you are into exploring, we suggest heading to the Sunway Pyramid which is right next to it. This iconic shopping mall offers an immersive experience, combining retail therapy, entertainment, and culinary delights all under one roof. As you step into its vast interior, you’ll be greeted by a stunning Egyptian-inspired design, complete with towering sculptures and intricate hieroglyphic motifs. Beyond its diverse array of stores, the mall also features exciting attractions such as an ⛸️ice-skating rink, a 🎳bowling alley, and a 🎥🍿cinema.
Besides the Sunway Pyramid, there are also many restaurants scattered around the area. All are within walking distance from the hotel and mall. If you have no idea what to choose, we would like to recommend The Seventeen Steamboat and BBQ. The 😈hell-themed restaurant's main highlight is steamboat and barbeque (but don't worry, you are not one of the ingredients). You can choose from a variety of soup bases, ranging from classic clear broth to spicy variations. There is free flow 🍦ice-cream as well.
Plus, it has adequate space for a big group. However, this place is not halal but no worries, you can pick any restaurant that you want, since dinner is not included in our package.
You can look forward to a satisfying breakfast buffet experience that caters to different tastes and preferences. The breakfast buffet provides a range of options to kick-start the day, ensuring that guests have the energy they need for the day ahead.
After breakfast, you’ll be taking a short walk to Sunway Lagoon Theme Park. It is an expansive theme park that offers a wide range of exhilarating attractions and activities for everyone. The day's team-building activities will kick off with an icebreaker session to encourage interaction and familiarity among team members. This will be followed by the formation of smaller teams, setting the stage for collaborative challenges ahead.
Actually, there are 5 station challenges, but for this team-building experience, you can choose 3 of them. Here is the list of challenges for you to pick from.
Takeaway From This Activity: Effective Communication
In the intense team building activity of "Professor Bombastic," the team members will be facing a critical challenge: transporting a potentially explosive bomb (not a real 💣💥bomb-lah) to a secure location to diffuse it. However, there is a catch, communication between the team members will be severely restricted, making the task even more daunting. It showcases the importance of effective communication, even in the face of limited resources, to accomplish a common goal while ensuring the safety of all involved.
Takeaway From This Activity: Discipline & Focus
In the engaging activity called "Stick of Honour," participants are tasked with the challenge of balancing a stick using only their fingers while simultaneously lowering it in perfect synchrony. Each participant holds the stick with their index fingers, using their fine motor control to find the delicate balance point. The stick itself serves as a metaphorical "honour," symbolising the collective effort and unity required to accomplish a shared goal. The objective of this activity is to test and develop the participants' discipline and focus skills.
Takeaway From This Activity: Moving Forward as a Company
In the intriguing challenge known as "The Oracle's Flag," team members are faced with the task of transforming four short sticks into a single, long flag. However, the twist is that they must accomplish this feat without using their 🚫✋🤚hands or any other body parts (WHAT😱?!). Each team has to devise a strategy to connect the four individual sticks, forming a cohesive and extended flag structure. You can explore various approaches, such as using strings, ropes, or other available materials, to fasten the sticks together securely. Through this activity, team members can enhance their communication and cooperation abilities as each member plays an important role to raise the flag.
Takeaway From This Activity: Continuous Improvement
In the profound quest known as "Zen Master," team members are faced with the challenge of locating ancient quotes. However, there's a twist, the team members must rely solely on their memory to memorise these quotes. By engaging with these ancient quotes, the team members are exposed to timeless teachings that have stood the test of time. The objective is to glean wisdom from these quotes to continually improve themselves and give everybody's brain a little bit of exercise, of course.
Takeaway From This Activity: Cost Saving & Trust Your Team
In the captivating challenge known as "The Pirate Orange Jewel," team members face the task of filling a leaky tube to capture a precious jewel. Adding an additional layer of complexity, the team member designated as the water bearer is blindfolded, requiring effective communication and guidance from the rest of the team to complete the challenge. The challenge intensifies due to the leaky nature of the tube, which requires the team to find a delicate balance between filling it up efficiently and preventing excessive water loss. The objective of this activity is to foster teamwork, trust, and efficient communication among the participants.
For part 2 of the team building activity, team members will engage in a fun and exciting game of treasure hunt! This immersive experience challenges participants to navigate the vast expanse of Sunway Lagoon, uncovering answers to questions by seizing “treasures” through your camera. Armed with cameras and a series of intriguing clues, the treasure hunt will lead you through the various attractions and rides within the sprawling grounds of Sunway Lagoon. The experience encourages a sense of discovery, time management, and the joy of exploration in addition to sparking a sense of competition among the teams.
For lunch, everybody will get a pre-packed meal to enjoy and replenish their energy. If you have any dietary restrictions, do let us know so that we can provide you with a meal that suits your requirements.
After half a day of competing against each other with various challenges, it’s time to bond with your teammates by enjoying the attractions in Sunway Lagoon! From the heart-pounding rides of the Water Park to the spine-tingling adventures of the Amusement Park, Sunway Lagoon has something to suit every thrill-seeker.
Meanwhile, those who prefer more relaxing entertainment can spend time floating around at the Zambezi River or simply swim around while enjoying performances on the big stage at the wave pool. Sunway Lagoon opens until night, so if you want to stay longer, it’s not a problem. In fact, the many of the Night Park entertainments are not available during the day!
Again dinner is on your own, but if you want us to recommend a place, that’ll be Rock Cafe. It sounds like a cafe but it's not. It’s actually a food court with a variety of food for you to choose from kolo mee to murtabak, there are plenty of halal and non-halal options for you to choose from. It is also one of the favourite hangout spots of the Subang peeps.
Again, breakfast is at the hotel! The breakfast buffet will be served in the morning at level 8. The breakfast buffet at Sunway Lagoon Hotel includes a range of local and international dishes. You can expect to find a selection of pastries, bread, and rolls. These can be enjoyed with a variety of spreads such as jams, baked beans, sausages and eggs. If you prefer something heavier, there are nasi lemak, porridge, fried beehoon, chicken rendang and many more!
After breakfast, there is an hour free and easy. You can use it to pack your belongings, sleep a bit more, go for a swim or chit-chat over yesterday’s team-building moments.
A 3-day, 2-night team-building experience at Sunway Lagoon is an incredible opportunity to unlock your team's potential. With a well-designed itinerary that encompasses engaging activities, lively surroundings, and ample time for bonding and reflection, this journey will leave a lasting impact on your team's dynamics and performance. Sunway Lagoon, with its diverse offerings, provides an ideal backdrop to foster collaboration, strengthen relationships, and unlock untapped potential.
