If you have a sports team participating in a tournament at Rocky Top Sports World, there are several attractions in Gatlinburg that are perfect for team building. This a great way for your players to improve their relationship with fellow team members and to provide an overall positive team environment! Here are 3 fun Gatlinburg attractions you should visit for team building:
1. Gatlin’s Escape Games
One of the Gatlinburg attractions that is perfect for a team building exercise is Gatlin’s Escape Games, which is situated in the Reagan Terrace Mall at 716 Parkway. An escape game is a form of interactive entertainment where the participants are “locked” into a themed room with other players. The object of the game is to work together as a group to find clues, solve a series of puzzles, and escape from the room before the time runs out. This is a fantastic team building activity because everyone must use their wits collectively to race against the clock! Gatlin’s Escape Games features several different themed rooms with props, lighting, and special effects, including the Legend of Atlantis, the Haunting of Hyde House, and Moonshine Hill Hootenanny.
2. CLIMB Works Ziplines
Another great team building activity in Gatlinburg is ziplining at CLIMB Works! As the premier adventure destination in the Smokies, CLIMB Works offers two world-class zipline tours that are nestled right across the street from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park! These guided tours are not only thrilling and educational, but immersed in nature for an experience that your team will remember for a lifetime! As you step a bit out of your comfort zone, cheer your team members on as they complete each of the ziplines and provide motivation to those who might be a little more nervous! Just keep in mind that participants must be at least 15 years old to zipline without an adult accompanying them on the tour, and participants ages 7 to 14 must have an adult go on the tour with them.
3. Ripley’s Davy Crockett Mini-Golf
When it comes to a combination of fun, team building, and competition, there is no better place in Gatlinburg than Ripley’s Davy Crockett Mini-Golf! There are actually 2 challenging miniature golf courses at this location, so play 18 holes or play both courses to experience all 36 holes. Each of the courses is themed to the good ole’ days when a Tennessee hero named Davy Crockett roamed “them thar hills!” As one of the top Gatlinburg attractions, Ripley’s Davy Crockett Mini-Golf is a blast for guests of all ages! See if you have what it takes to become the miniature golf champion among your team and share lots of laughs as you attempt to get the best score. You can even win a free game by scoring a hole-in-one.
