A private equity company with a group of 360 people were looking for a unique and interactive way to explore the city of Lisbon while also tying in with one of their keynote speakers which they meant they needed a bespoke team building solution. They originally considered our award-winning “Team Quest” activity, but ultimately decided on a bespoke spy-themed experience created by our in-house development team.

The keynote speaker for the event was Darrell Blocker, the former head of a CIA training camp. He gave the introduction to the game before handing over to a Blue Hat representative who went over the technical details. The participants were then sent out on buses to various locations around the city, with teams in more distant regions provided with a fleet of tuk-tuks to help them get to the final extraction point.

Using the Team Quest platform, our team designed a fully branded tablet-based interactive game with checkpoints scattered throughout the city. These checkpoints included general knowledge questions about Lisbon, company-specific questions, and photo challenges, all with a spy theme.

The participants were split into 60 teams, with each team belonging to a squad of 8 teams distributed across 8 different regions of Lisbon. As they visited the specified checkpoints and completed challenges, they earned points and collected keys. When a squad collected 8 keys, a safehouse would appear on their map. The squads had to communicate with each other to complete the challenge and make it to the extraction point before time ran out.

This technology-driven outdoor activity, suitable for groups of 40 or more, is now available as our newly developed event called “Extraction Point.” Participants must navigate to safe havens, avoid enemy spies, and make it to the extraction point before time runs out, all while earning points and trying to arrive before their opponents. It’s a thrilling and unique way to explore the city and have an unforgettable experience!
