Iron Chef Competition
Regardless if you’ve seen the popular Food Network television series, our Iron Chef Competition is one of the principal teambuilding activities here at Crystal Springs Resort. Participants will be on the clock to create the very best two-course meal using only the freshest, highest-quality ingredients. Our team of culinary masters will offer hands-on assistance as well as professional tips that you can put in your back pocket. Each team will be judged on taste, originality, presentation, and teamwork. Each winning chef will receive a bottle of world-class wine from our private label. Afterward, the entire group will indulge in a five-star dinner prepared by our first-class executive chef.
Mixology Competition
Another one of the most creative activities at Crystal Springs Resort is the Mixology Competition. After learning the tips and tricks from our expert mixologists, teams will be provided with a variety of beverages, flavorings, and a secret ingredient. Both of our award-winning resorts near NYC have a staff of highly-trained mixologists. The goal is to create the best signature cocktail judged on teamwork, creativity, originality, and, of course, taste!
Murder Mystery
Who doesn’t love a good, old-fashioned murder mystery over dinner and drinks? Your world-class meal will be paired with a staged, new murder to solve. Each Murder Mystery is explicitly scripted to each group, so no two dinner parties are the same. Regardless if your team is the one to crack the seemingly unsolvable code, the dinner party is bound to be a highlight of your stay at Crystal Springs.
Custom Obstacle Course
Encourage your employees to let loose during the always messy Custom Obstacle Course! We provide a wide variety of challenges, locations, and designs to accommodate every prospective group. Each unique obstacle course involves a sloppy mud run that always inspires laughter and camaraderie. The top-performing teams will receive medals during the closing ceremony. Dial 1-844-774-2733 to learn about the endless possibilities.
Water Wars
Teams of two will board tandem kayaks on a nearby body of water in a challenge of strength, determination, and teamwork. The Water Wars competition is seasonal, but it’s one of our favorite events in autumn because of the breathtaking foliage. The slalom course has a series of exciting obstacles, including blindfolded paddlers! The goal of this exhilarating competition is to improve communication and trust on the path to glory.
