Urban Quest success stories

View all

Fantastic experience – level of difficulty was perfect – not too easy but difficult enough to create teamwork – input from everyone to solve the clues and also bringing some humour too. I highly recommend this for a work team activity. We are looking forward to doing another quest soon.

Bernadette Notting

Our team loved our event with Urban Quest! It was such a unique experience and everyone ended the day with smiles on their faces and memories which will stay with us forever. Joanna and Serge at Urban Quest made the organisation so easy and everything went off without a hitch on the day. Thanks so much, Urban Quest, we’ll be back!

Emma Zeeno

We have completed multiple events with Urban Quest (both physical and digital) and they are a delight every time. Cannot recommend Serge and the Urban Quest team highly enough.Experiences were a good length, really well designed and enjoyable. If you’ve read this far just book one!

Supercharge Your Corporate Team Building Melbourne: Introducing Strategic Debrief

Supercharge Your Corporate Team Building Melbourne: Introducing Strategic Debrief

The corporate team building industry in Melbourne offers an array of activities that promise to boost teamwork, cooperation, and camaraderie. However, let’s face it: many of these experiences are fun while they last, but quite often, teams return to the office the next day, the same as they were before. Inefficient, right?

What is Urban Quest?

Urban Quest is an exhilarating team building adventure inspired by the iconic Amazing Race concept. 

But with the twist: we’ve ditched the physical challenges and replaced them with fun problem-solving activities designed to foster collaboration and teamwork like never before.

Your team is racing against the clock, solving puzzles, cracking codes, and working together to conquer each challenge. It’s a thrilling race against time and only teamwork is the key to success.

Our tailored group activities cater to both Corporate and Educational organisations in Melbourne. 

For businesses, we offer multiple game routes in Melbourne locations like the CBD, Docklands, Kings Domain Park and Fitzroy Gardens. 

Plus, we can bring the action directly to your conference or office space.

Weather-proof indoor options are available too!

Virtual Urban Quest will be the best choice for remote teams.

Schools can benefit from Urban Quest with our engaging incursions held right on campus or exciting excursions featuring our CBD game route. 

Urban Quest takes your colleagues or students on an unforgettable journey of teamwork and fun.

How does Urban Quest work?

Urban Quest operates on a simple yet effective concept. First, the group is divided into teams of 4-5 individuals to ensure optimal collaboration and teamwork. Participants then access our game platform via their smartphones, where they receive instructions, submit answers, and uncover Augmented Reality clues.

For those without smartphones or in primary school settings, we also offer a paper-based format to ensure everyone can participate.

Throughout the experience, teams navigate the city (campus for primary schools), exploring specific landmarks and hidden lanes where clues are cleverly integrated. This immersive approach adds an extra layer of excitement and engagement to the adventure.

As teams progress, they are tasked with solving puzzles and challenges that require efficient communication and utilisation of each member’s unique strengths. Creativity, collaboration, and quick thinking are the keys to success.

Watch how Urban Quest works in this short video.

What is the format of the day?

The day kicks off with arrival at your designated starting location, about 15 minutes before your scheduled start time. Here, you’ll gather with your pre-assigned teams and meet your event host, who will guide you through the game instructions and ensure everyone is set up and ready to roll on the game platform.

Once briefed, it’s time to hit the streets! Your team will embark on an exhilarating journey to uncover clues, solve riddles, and conquer challenges together. It’s a test of teamwork, strategy, and problem-solving skills as you race against the clock and rival teams.

After completing your Urban Quest, we’ll regroup for a celebratory wrap-up. Expect plenty of high-fives, as we announce scores, highlight achievements, and crown the victorious team. It’s the perfect way to conclude a day filled with fun, camaraderie, and memorable experiences.

How many people per team do you recommend?

For optimal engagement and participation, we suggest forming teams of 4-5 participants. This size ensures that everyone has a chance to actively contribute without feeling crowded or overlooked. 

However, team sizes can be adjusted to accommodate different needs or setup arrangements, ranging from 3 to 8 members per team.

Groups of what size can be accommodated?

Urban Quest is equipped to accommodate groups of any size seamlessly. 

Our technology-driven approach means that we can efficiently manage larger groups without the need for additional staff.

Depending on the group size, we may make minor adjustments to the game design to ensure smooth logistics and an enjoyable experience for all participants.

What is needed for the Urban Quest event?

As a participant, all you need is a fully charged smartphone and to arrive on time for the event!

As the group organiser, you’ll be responsible for assigning participants to teams and ensuring they receive any essential information we provide at the time of booking.

Where do we meet?

You will meet at established start/finish points for our experiences.

Corporate groups usually meet at one of our partnering venues.

While school groups gather centrally in front of the State Library, near Melbourne Central Station.

Custom start and finish locations can be arranged based on your specific needs.

How much does it cost?

Urban Quest offers competitive rates, leveraging technology to eliminate the need for extra and often unnecessary staff.

Our tiered pricing structure ensures the per-head rates get lower with the group size.

Organisers of corporate groups can get a total quote based on their estimated numbers using our Pricing Calculator.

What’s the duration of an Urban Quest event?

Urban Quest events typically last between 2 to 2.5 hours, including pre-event brief and post-event awards.

The experience duration is thoroughly thought out and strikes the perfect balance, ensuring participants achieve their objectives without feeling overwhelmed.

Are there any options for food or drinks?

Yes, we partner with some of Melbourne’s finest venues, offering options for meals and drinks.

If your group desires food and beverages, you can easily arrange this with our partner venues typically located at the start/finish point of your event.

What’s the physical level of Urban Quest experiences?

Each Urban Quest is crafted to be inclusive and enjoyable for all participants, regardless of age or fitness level. Teams have the flexibility to set their own pace, ensuring that everyone can fully participate and enjoy the experience.

As for distance, Urban Quest routes typically cover a manageable distance within the designated area, ensuring that participants can comfortably navigate the course while engaging in the activities.

Is it suitable for people in wheelchairs?

Urban Quest’s CBD experience is designed to be as accessible as possible, making use of existing infrastructure to ensure wheelchair users can participate comfortably.

While some challenges may require mobility, the majority of the experience is accessible to people in wheelchairs, allowing them to fully engage and enjoy the activities alongside their teammates.

What if the weather is bad?

If the weather conditions are particularly bad or you specifically prefer an indoor option, we offer a CBD experience that’s entirely indoors – “Black Friday Quest”!

You can select this option when booking, or we can switch your group to the indoor experience at the start of your event if the weather turns unfavourable for outdoor activities.

Even when the weather doesn’t cooperate, your Urban Quest event will never get cancelled.

How is Urban Quest different?

Urban Quest stands out from other team building options thanks to our cutting-edge experience design, innovative use of technology, and advanced performance-tracking capabilities. We’ve taken the widely recognised concept of the amazing race and refined it to create an experience that’s accessible to almost anyone.

Unlike traditional team building group activities that may be either too physically demanding or lacklustre, we’ve carefully crafted our experience to ensure it’s dynamic and engaging for all participants. Our focus is on fostering collaboration, problem-solving, and teamwork skills, making it ideal for corporate groups and school students alike.

Our Team Activator or Strategic Debrief packages provide valuable takeaways and tangible results that transform your team.

At Urban Quest, we’re not just providing an activity – we’re delivering an unforgettable experience that brings teams closer together and enhances their skills in a fun and interactive way.

How will my team benefit from Urban Quest?

Urban Quest offers more than just a fun and memorable experience – it’s a guaranteed way to boost morale and improve culture within your team.

Urban Quest team building group activities are designed to deliver genuine, engaging experiences that promote unity and inclusivity.

Our innovative game platform ensures that participants are fully immersed in the action. Guided by their smartphones and incorporating cutting-edge technology like Augmented Reality, our group activities guarantee maximum engagement and teamwork.

But don’t worry, this isn’t a screen-time marathon. Our platform only provides guidance and instructions, leaving plenty of room for genuine interactions and collaboration in the real world.

Every task and challenge is carefully designed to ensure no one takes a passive role. Even the quiet and shy of your team will be raving about their experience.

After the event, everyone will have access to detailed performance insights that track team and individual achievements. These insights add to the competitive and immersive atmosphere of Urban Quest, ensuring your team stays engaged long after the event is over.
