Urban Fear Factor

Urban Fear Factor

A SMARTPHONE SCAVENGER HUNT FOR TEAMS WITH GUTS

Urban Fear Factor combines a smartphone-powered scavenger hunt with the TV show Fear Factor to take teams on a wild adventure. Participants will have a blast completing daring missions, outrageous challenges, discovering their wild and creative sides, exploring the city, competing against other teams, and getting to know their colleagues better.

Everyone will be trying to top the leaderboard, and the team that does will earn massive company-wide bragging rights!

FUN PHOTO CHALLENGES GET SENT RIGHT TO YOUR SMARTPHONE!

On event day teams receive entertaining missions right on their smartphones using a cool app. Participants can do a quick scan through all the missions and decide which ones to take on and when. Rush through some of the seemingly easy ones to get warmed up, or head straight to the crazier ones to earn big points.

Check out our video introduction to our smartphone app:

Some teaser missions to give you an idea of what to expect

From handstands in elevators to kissing live lobsters, your team better be ready to face their fears!

ELEVATOR ACTION | 500 POINTS: Hop in an elevator with complete strangers, and once it starts moving, get down and do your best handstand! Capture the moment with a photo.

The reaction of bystanders to this mission is always hilarious. You know what it's like to be in an elevator ... people staring straight ahead, hesitant to look at anyone or say anything. It's a bizarre phenomenon, and this mission will make it even more so.

COFFEE BAR STAR | 250 POINTS: Create a great Benihana-calibre teppanyaki routine at the condiment stand of your local coffee shop. The photograph must be an action shot!

Imagine standing in line for your daily cup of coffee when all of a sudden a group of people storms into the shop, heads directly to the cream and sugar station and then proceeds to throw packages of Splenda in the air while group members try to catch them with wooden stir sticks! Someone takes a picture and then just as quickly as they appeared, they're gone! You know bystanders will have an interesting story to tell around the water cooler on Monday!

CROSS DRESSERS | 1000 POINTS: Find a pair with a passion for fashion and swap their outfits with two members of your team. Before and after photo proof is required.

We never thought teams would even try this. "Where are they going to find two (sane) people who want to give up their clothes?" We're always surprised how many times we're wrong! There is no shortage of people willing to trade clothes with total strangers under the guise of "Help-us-win-this-game!" It's the odd couples that make this mission so much fun, like the construction workers who swapped outfits with the Japanese exchange students, or the lawyers and the mannequins in the store window!

SEE FOOD, KISS FOOD | 250 POINTS: Make friends with your favorite crustacean. Get a photo of you kissing a live crab or lobster.

Fishmongers like to have fun. Find a friendly one and request a brief encounter with one of his friends, Mr. Crab or Lobster. Just be sure to stay away from its claws 'cause claws and lips are a bad match!

URBAN FEAR FACTOR IS AVAILABLE ANYWHERE, IN ANY TIME FRAME, FOR ANY GROUP SIZE

One of the coolest benefits of Urban Fear Factor is it can be run anywhere in the world, and even in multiple locations at the same time! This is perfect for companies with offices spread out across the country or even around the world. Wherever people are participating, we recommend you finish at a bar/restaurant for drinks, post-race storytelling, and winner recognition.

The activity lasts approximately two to three hours, but is customizable to meet your needs. Looking for something fun to do in a compressed time like a lunch hour or conference break? We can make that work too.

And yes, like almost all our team building activities, Urban Fear Factor is completely scalable for large groups of any size – 1,000, 5,000, 10,000 or more!

Your investment includes:

  • Custom-built Urban Fear Factor, branded for your company
  • A password-protected smartphone activity, made private for your group
  • Access to the live leaderboard and activity stream
  • Full, personal instructions for you and your team
  • The option to add on custom challenges

Pricing for events like this one varies depending on several factors, such as your group size, your preferred event location, and your chosen event date. The investment does not include any venue or location rental fees.
