Happy hours are nice, but sometimes what the office morale needs is a fun activity to do as a team.
Luckily there are plenty of spots around Austin offering enough space for groups of all sizes to be active, try something new and bond outside of the workplace.

Who says laser tag is just for kids? According to its website, the “adventure center” offers the largest laser tag arena in Texas.

Beyond laser tag, Blazertag also includes a suspended ropes course and an arcade, plus food and drinks.

Ever wondered what’s it’s like to throw an axe? At this center, the axes fly and guests can bring their own drinks (except hard liquor). Parties of more than 6 are encouraged to book a group event, and the facility also hosts corporate events for up to 115 people.
Peter Pan Mini Golf
1207 Barton Springs Rd, Austin, TX 78704
The cash-only mini golf center has been an Austin institution since 1948. Groups can reserve picnic tables and receive a group rate for parties with more than 10 people. Guests can choose to play one or both of the courses. Pack a cooler, as the location is BYOB, but leave the glass containers at home.
