Top 6 Outdoor Events for Summer 2017

May 1, 2017 : News, General Team Building

Maximillion, along with our other event brands Wildgoose Scotland, MadMax Adventures and Turnberry Adventures, offer a wide range of outdoor team building events and activities to suit different group sizes, objectives and budgets.

To help you choose the right one for your team, here are our top six for Summer 2017:



It’s A Knockout

Now a team building classic, this inflatable fun event is as popular as ever. Nothing breaks down barriers more than seeing your colleagues dive through soapy tunnels and slide down slippery slopes. Our professional Compere provides hilarious commentary and, with the DJ and sound system playing the tunes of the summer, a high level of energy and light-hearted cross-team competition and bragging rights are guaranteed. Add some Whacky Races or a BBQ to create the perfect summer team away day.


GPS-enabled, Location-based Team Challenges

These fabulously fun, innovative events bring treasure hunts and location-based team challenges well and truly into the 21st century. They provide the ideal opportunity for your team to get to know one another while exploring a city or venue in a unique way.


Highland Games

Ideal for incentive programmes and away days alike, experience the best of Scottish culture and tradition with your very own clan gathering with a number of authentic and exhilarating activities. Go all out and treat participants to a fierce ‘clan battle’ between tartan-clad warriors!


Boot Camp

Our Boot Camp includes some fantastic activities for you to choose from to ensure your troops get put through their paces. Our very own Drill Sergeant welcomes the group and takes them through the first challenge of the day before the troops split and rotate around a number of different activities. Choose from: Camouflage & Concealment, Fire & Manoeuvre, British Military Fitness, Command Tasks, Air Rifle shooting, Army Song… to name but a few. And if the rotational activities aren’t enough you have the option of finishing your event off with a log race finale!


Country Pursuits

Always a favourite with corporate groups and leisure groups alike. From basic Country Pursuits packages including activities such as 4×4 offroading in Land Rover Defenders, Quad Bike Safari and Traditional Clays, to bespoke packages including unusual activities such as Segways, Black Powder Shooting and Duck Herding, there’s something to appeal to everyone’s taste. Maximillion provides country pursuits activities from our Kirknewton Stables venue and our MadMax Adventures and Turnberry Adventures activity centres, as well as unique venues such as Dundas Castle.


Pole Position

Pedal power rules in this low octane – high adrenaline Grand Prix classic! Pole Position challenges teams over a three stage process to design and construct their very own F1 super kart and then race in a series of qualifiers before the final head to head, complete with grid walk interviews, a special guest appearance of Luxembourg’s “Le Stige” (no relation to his UK namesake), warm-up laps, pit stops and tyre changes. The event will conclude with podium results, constructor’s prize and, of course, champagne!! This is your very own Grand Prix which will appeal to all, be it the budding engineer, the artistic creative or the aspirational racing driver.
