Team Building in San Francisco

Team building doesn’t have to be ice breakers in the office. Here’s a list of fun and engaging activities to do with your team in San Francisco.

San Francisco offers unique and engaging team building activities, whether it be guiding your teammates through an escape room or learning how to make your coworker’s favorite cocktail. Here are a few ideas for “Only in San Francisco” team building adventures.

Tasty Teamwork

Take advantage of the city’s abundance of incredible chefs and bounty of fresh ingredients with a culinary team building event. At the Cheese School of San Francisco, attendees can get an in-depth lesson in cheeses of the world and pair them with perfect wines. Strap on an apron, pour a glass of wine and watch the camaraderie develop.

The Escape Game

Recover a priceless work of art, find lost gold or break out of prison in the various escape room adventures. Put your brains together to find clues, overcome challenges, and solve puzzles to complete the mission! Will your team emerge victorious?

Happy Hunting

Got a team that’s eager to outsmart one another? Send them out on a citywide adventure that’s equal parts Da Vinci Code and Amazing Race. Mastermind Treasure Hunts arranges puzzle clues that teams must solve to reach the finish line. Teamwork is a must as participants race through parks, down alleys and past landmarks while exploring the city and getting to know one another in the process. Select from neighborhood-specific hunts through Chinatown, Union Square or SoMa, or work with them to develop a custom option.

Ready to Rock

Much of San Francisco’s modern mystique was built on rock ‘n’ roll, so why not let your team channel their inner rock star for a day with Rock the Stars. Programs range from “Corporate Idol” to “School of Rock,” and can last from an hour to a day. Group size can vary from six to several hundred, and no musical experience is needed.


Get Cooking

Take your team out of the conference room and into the kitchen for a fun and engaging event. Work with your colleagues to create the perfect bowl of ramen while learning about the history and culture of this delicious dish. The Story of Ramen provides hands-on noodle-making classes that cater to chefs of all levels and dietary restrictions.

Murder Mystery

Attendees will have “the crime of their life” during a Murder on the Menu event from TeamBuilding Unlimited. These highly specialized events can be customized to fit any industry, incorporate professional jargon and even be woven into your meeting’s agenda. Along the way, the team will need to look for clues and interact with each other in order to eventually solve the mystery. They can also fit the program to your location, so there’s no need to transport a group offsite.

Dive Into Fun

Your team won’t need to jump out of a perfectly good airplane to experience the thrills of skydiving thanks to iFLY Indoor Skydiving. The popular, safer alternative will be sure to please, and with plenty of experience in the industry, iFLY can accommodate team building, sales events and even business meetings. In addition to the chamber, there’s also a conference room.
