walking distance of our convention center, making it easy to continue
the networking past 5 p.m.”
The metro area also boasts some excellent group adventure ex-
periences, from team events in firearm and archery shooting at the
Demmer Center to the Ninja obstacle course, trapeze and trampo-
lines at District 5 Extreme Air Sports.
For attendees who prefer outdoor experiences, Sundance Riding
Stables and JoyRide Pedal Tours give groups a chance to bond while
still getting some fresh air. River Town Adventures rents kayaks and
features several trip options through the city of Lansing along the
Red Cedar and Grand rivers; planners can rent tandem kayaks for a
group paddle on the Zoo to the Market trip, or the shorter Power of
the Grand trip, which is 1.8 miles. For boat rides without the workout,
Lansing Metro Marinas offers private cruises and boat tours.
Greater Lansing CVB staff members put their money where their
mouths are when it comes to group activities, according to Padot.
“Internally, the staff of the GLCVB has tried almost everything on
the list. We’ve enjoyed horseback riding, JoyRide Pedal tours, outings
at Demmer Center, Spare Time [Entertainment Center] and boat
rides along the Grand River, just to name a few,” she said.
This familiarity can give planners confidence in finding the best
teambuilding activities for their own groups.
When attendees are ready to wind down after their event, Fire-Keepers Casino Hotel Battle Creek, located southeast of Lansing,
features slots, poker and table games. The complex also has eight
different dining options so groups can restore some of those calories
burned on outdoor activities.
Outdoor fun is the name of the team game in Grand Rapids. Planners
can work off those banquet dinners in a number of fun ways.
“There are plenty of teambuilding activities groups can par-
ticipate in when visiting Grand Rapids,” said Andie Newcomer,
convention services manager for the Grand Rapids CVB. “Groups
can go for runs with GR Running Tours, kayak on the Rogue River
in Rockford, mountain bike on local trails and zipline at Grand
Rapids Adventure Park.”
She added that groups can also head out to Fifth Third Ballpark
and see a game by the hometown Minor League Baseball team, the
West Michigan Whitecaps, or to one of the dozens of golf courses
within a 30-minute drive of downtown. In addition to watching
games at Fifth Third Ballpark, planners can also arrange events on
