Response from the owner: Thanks!
Response from the owner: Dank!
Awesome staff and loads of fun!
Response from the owner: Dank Lukas!
There are lots of things to do. We went for bubble football. Which was surprisingly hard. After just 5 minutes, we were all pretty much exhausted. Luckily, there are many mini games you can play with bubble football. So we had no trouble using the remainder of our time. Be aware of scratches on your knees when playing bubble fotball, they are exposed when falling.They also have a bar there, which is fantastic after match in warm weather. Oh, and no alcohol allowed before playing.
Response from the owner: Hi Sondre, thanks for your review. What can we improve to earn 5 stars? 🙂
We had a really good time playing Bubble Football with my friends for the 1st time. Tom made sure everything went smoothly for us props to him !

What is team building exactly? Team building is a collective term for various types of activities used to enhance social relations and define roles within teams, often involving collaborative tasks. It is distinct from team training, which is designed by a combination of business managers, learning and development/OD (Internal or external) and an HR Business Partner (if the role exists) to improve the efficiency, rather than interpersonal relations.

Games for groups:

  • aligning around goals
  • building effective working relationships
  • reducing team members’ role ambiguity
  • finding solutions to team problems
