Team challenge (outdoor):
The new structure of the Team Challenge is different from the traditional outdoor "from station to station" team building trainings. The teams have to complete 5 missions (or 10 missions in case of a bigger number of people) and they encounter additional subtasks within each mission. The team does not get full information about the subtasks so they will have to choose the task they want to fulfil without knowing this information. Each mission is based on different themes, they include tasks requiring skills, logical way of thinking and creativity thus everyone will have the chance to show their strength in an area even if they are just watching passively in another mission. Required site for the programme: a forest or the park of the hotel.
City challenge (outdoor):
Discovering a town is always an attractive programme and it is especially exciting when it is about a several-thousand-year-old town. In the game the participants form teams who can get to know the most important historical events, the most famous inhabitants, the most popular artists and of course the local gossips of the given town. It is played differently from the traditional ways, it is exciting, funny, thought- provoking, in short it is playful. The teams - while visiting the famous place, hidden spaces, secret passages of the town - solve tasks based on different themes. Do not worry, it is not a "dull" history quiz. When for example the teams are having a rest on a terrace eating an ice-cream sundae they won't feel like that. This way also puzzles can be solved faster.
Night adventure tour (outdoor):
Is there anything more exciting than a forest at night? Mysterious darkness, animal sounds, rustling, the crunching sound of dry leaves. In this exciting game the main task of the team members is to help each other, to cooperate, to communicate, because it is the only way to get out of the forest. The dark forest, the sounds and noises give a basic atmosphere to the game thus the first task of the teams is to get used to the situation and the real tasks are just coming afterwards. The duration of the programme is about 1.5 hours due to the nighttime. At the end of the game the teams can celebrate their "escape" by having some fine Pálinka and also those can feel relieved who are afraid of the dark.

Danny Ocean's band (outdoor):
This hectic, funny game was inspired by the Ocean’s Trilogy (11, 12, 13), the framework of which is connected to the robbery of casinos, art thefts and of course an easy-going elegance. Danny Ocean would like to expand his team and now here is a chance for the participants to prove through various tasks whether they are suitable for it or not. How can they cope with the laser field, can they deactivate the alarm, are they good at planning routes? During the programme the games recall the scenes known from the films and in the end the teams can show their skills in the topic through an exciting crime story quiz. Required site for the programme: a forest or the park of the hotel.
Film festival (can be implemented both outdoors and indoors):
During the programme the teams pick different topics and they have to prepare a film about it using a camera they receive. The topics can be connected to different geographical locations (e.g. Africa, tropical islands, etc.) or a specified type of film has to be made (horror, comedy, etc.). The teams' task is to write the scripts, the dialogues, to design and make the costumes and to shoot and edit a short film. Then at night the films can be shown and everyone can enjoy and laugh at them. The programme can be completed with an awards ceremony too.
We Romans (outdoor):
Hungary has innumerable Roman relics. The Roman defensive wall, a section of the limes was built in Hungary. Both garrisons and settlements could be found along the limes. In the game you can get to know the everyday life of a Roman garrison, the tricks of warfare, the versatility of their culture and try out the activities. At the end of the game it turns out which team members can be full Roman citizens. During the programme the everyday acts of the Roman age citizens arise, e.g. how to wear a toga, how to build a catapult, etc.
Strategic Lasertag (outdoor):
Its aim is to make people play with their colleagues carelessly and strengthen their confidence and cooperation in a good atmosphere. Lasertag: The planning of a common strategy and an enduring, harmonized cooperation among the team members will receive an important role. These guns with no paint or bruises give fantastic experience to their users. Tools: we provide the participants with guns equipped with laser sensors. The laser guns do not shoot off any ammo compared to paintball and airsoft. When you get hit you do not feel any pain, there is no chance to get injured. You do not have to wear any protective clothes or masks. Required site for the programme: in case of an outdoor programme, a grove or forest.

With its old, established buildings, monuments and narrow streets the town has a unique historic atmosphere. Thanks to its favourable transport and geographical features it is accessible both on the road and by ship. The monuments forming part of the international cultural heritage, the touristic programmes and the facilities worthily rank Visegrád among the settlements of national or even international reputation.

The competitive team work carried out in craft workshops is more popular than it was expected. The guests enjoy doing it and they root for each other. The tasks: stone cutting, forging, pottery, making prints on handmade paper - it is recommended to involve not more than 40 people at the same time. If the group includes more people, it is advisable to combine it with other games by dividing the group. Our guests can take their "handicrafts" home as souvenirs. The masters evaluate the quality of work per team by giving points. The duration of the game for each craft is about 15 minutes, thus the activity carried out in all four workshops is about 1 hour.
