    If you have a larger group, whirly ball is a great activity. It's interactive and fun but requires minimal physical activity so it is a nice choice for all skill levels. Try Whirly Ball Atlanta, located in Roswell.

    Kick it into high gear with a trip to Andretti, where you and your team can race around the track (all in good fun, of course) in the high-speed super karts. The fun center also has a few other attractions to check out, including a ropes course and a rock wall.

    If you're willing to trek outside the city a bit, a trip to try zip lining is a unique way to bond with your team. Try North Georgia Canopy Tours, located just north of Gainseville, or head to Gwinnett's Treetop Quest, a multi-part treetop adventure.

    If you're looking for something a bit more low-key, hitting the ballpark to see the Braves play or catching a Hawks game could be just the ticket! Bonus points if you rent a private suite, but even regular seats are just fine.​

    Help Others

    ••• Hands on Atlanta

    Why not bond as a team and help others in the process? Planning a team charity event or volunteer day will leave everyone feeling great! Reach out to non-profits that are related to your group's line of work or interests, or just get connected with an organization like Hands on Atlanta to help find an opportunity that's right for you.

    ••• Sky Zone Roswell

    If your team is particularly athletic and active, a trip to Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park could be tons of fun. This place is exactly what it sounds like...a room entirely covered in trampolines! Bounce around with friends, and even burn a few calories in the process. There are currently three Sky Zone locations in the metro area (Kennesaw, Suwanee and Roswell), with more coming soon.

    Get Crafty

    If your group is artsy, there are so many fun options for an outing. Around Atlanta, you'll find numerous "Sips and Strokes" locations, as well as a few others that go by different names, where you can paint pictures while enjoying a glass of wine.

    The Beehive, a super cool co-op gift shop, hosts a variety of classes that would be a good fit for small groups.

    If your group likes art but isn't into creating their own, maybe a trip to the High Museum is in order! Pro tip: On Thursday evenings, the High is open late and serves cocktails in their lobby lounge.
