If you’ve ever been assigned the daunting task of planning a group event, you’ll understand how difficult it is thinking of fun, new and exciting things to do in Toronto that will entertain everyone. But the next time this job falls on your plate, let us make it easier with five suggestions for you to consider when you’re planning your next corporate event, birthday gathering, or just plain old partying with your friends.
Whodunnit? Remember those puzzles where you needed to gather clues from words and illustrations in an attempt to discover a murderer? Well, now you can live them out in person! Become a real-live detective with a murder mystery dinner theatre or off-site show. Companies like Mysteriously Yours provide interactive, solvable murder mystery scenarios for you and your group to solve together. Let the pros act out the scene while you enjoy dinner and hone your detective skills with your friends and coworkers. They also do off-site shows so you can bring the mystery to a location of your choosing!
Okay, so admittedly Go-Karting isn’t necessarily a new activity, but it is definitely still trendy, especially for any adrenaline junkies out there. Places like K1 Speed provide you with some of the finest electric karts in the world accompanied with an option of two different tracks to race around. Pretend you’re a Nascar driver and race with your friends at speeds up to 45mph. If you’re looking for a team building experience specifically, K1 Speed can also accommodate up to 4 competition challenges that will be sure to keep your event interesting.
Take a break from the real world and escape with your friends or colleagues in Virtual Reality, the hottest new technology everyone is talking about. The great thing about VR is it has something for everyone, so you can all be entertained. Want to shoot zombies with your friends or coworkers? Games like Arizona Sunshine can make the experience as realistic as possible for you. Don’t like shoot-em-ups? No problem, the options are nearly endless. Try your hand at a virtual escape room with your group then move onto a competitive match of 1-on-1 ping pong. Whatever you’re looking for, there’s sure to be something in VR that suits your fancy.

Who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned scavenger hunt? How about one inside a museum, or adventuring through the beautiful architecture of the Distillery District? Companies like Urban Capers have designed custom made, intricate scavenger hunts for you and your team to attempt to solve before your time runs out. With eight scavenger options currently available at various landmark locations in Toronto, there are plenty of options to choose from. Communicate with your colleagues in order to find clues around the city. And as someone who has been at a hunt hosted through the Royal Ontario Museum, I can assure you it is tons of fun.
Party Boat Cruise
Party on a boat! Literally. If this sounds like something you want to do, there are many boat cruises taking place off the waters of Lake Ontario that offer a great time aboard for all. Drink fancy cocktails and eat exquisite seafood with your friends and colleagues, all while enjoying the beautiful skyline of Toronto from the on-deck dance floor. Just don’t go too overboard.
We hope we sparked some inspiration in you for your next party plan. If you have any questions about Virtual Reality as an option for your next private or corporate event, feel free to contact us anytime – we’d be happy to help you escape to a virtual world!
