9 Fun Group Activities in Las Vegas

Over 40 million people visit Las Vegas every year. It is home to more than 60 major casinos, where you can find action around the clock, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

In addition to gambling, there are lots of activities in Las Vegas for groups, including corporate or personal retreats. However, with so many options, it can be difficult to narrow them down.

Below are our top nine recommendations for group activities in Las Vegas. Keep reading to find out which ones might be best for your next outing.

  1. Indoor Skydiving

For anyone who wants to skydive but avoid the whole jumping-out-of-a-plane part, indoor skydiving is available. This involves putting on a helmet, goggles, and jumpsuit before entering a wind tunnel that simulates falling. You will get the adrenaline rush without the fear of falling from the sky.

Vegas Indoor Skydiving is a company that provides this. It is available to anyone who weighs over 40 pounds, so they can accommodate groups with children as well.

  1. Wreck Room

Want to let off some steam by smashing everyday objects into pieces? Wreck Room outfits you and your friends in protective gear and gives you baseball bats and crowbars. They then turn you loose in a room filled with bottles, computers, printers, and similar objects for you to destroy.

Wreck Room specializes in birthday parties, corporate events, and bachelor or bachelorette parties. It can be a fantastic option for any group visiting Las Vegas.

  1. Operate Heavy Equipment

If you want to play in the world’s first adult sandbox, check out Dig This. You pick between 16 pieces of equipment to operate. These include bulldozers, excavators, front-end loaders, and more.

They can accommodate almost any size group. If you are there for a corporate or other team-building occasion, they can put together a special program for you.

They also can accommodate outside food and beverages. It is about 30 minutes from the Strip but very close to the airport.

  1. Visit a Speakeasy

During the Prohibition era, speakeasies were secret (hence the name), illicit establishments that sold liquor. When alcohol sales resumed in 1933, there was no need for the clandestine nature of the bars.

During the last few decades, speakeasy-style lounges have grown in popularity. This often entails a signless entrance and a 1920’s ambiance.

Some Vegas speakeasies, like the 1923 Prohibition Bar, feature nightly shows. These include piano players, burlesque dancers, and magic shows. They also offer private events that are perfect for small groups looking for a unique cocktail lounge experience.

  1. The Laugh Factory

The Laugh Factory, located in the Tropicana, opened in 1977 and has been named “the number one comedy club in the country.” Throughout the years, they have hosted both established and up-and-coming stars, and keep a rotating list showcasing myriad comedy genres.

The Laugh Factory does have an intimate seating configuration, which means it may not be ideal for very large groups. However, for smaller parties, the venue offers discounted rates. They also host an open mic night if you want to test out your comedy chops.

  1. Happy Hour on a Ferris Wheel

If you have ever seen a picture of the Vegas skyline, you have probably noticed the large, illuminated Ferris wheel. The High Roller is a 550-foot high observation wheel that has 28 spacious, enclosed, air-conditioned cabins that can each accommodate up to 40 people. It takes approximately 30 minutes to complete a rotation, giving guests various panoramic views of the city.

You can book tickets almost any time of day or night, but the High Roller also features special happy hour events. These include an open bar for up to 25 guests.

  1. Food Competitions

Go all the way to Vegas just to cook? Well, for culinary-minded groups, there are lots of options that include team-building exercises.

The Great Guac Off takes the love of avocados to the next level. They divide your group into teams for a 90-minute activity. Each team assigns roles and then sets out to see who can come up with the best guac recipe.

There are prizes for the winners, along with avocado-themed trivia and games along the way. The best part is that you get to eat the fruits of your labor.

Gingerbread Wars is a similar idea. It involves seeing which team can make the most epic gingerbread house in the allotted time. You can visit their brick-and-mortar location or have them come to you for an off-site event.

  1. Escape Rooms

We know that escape rooms are everywhere. However, like everything else, Vegas takes things to the next level. For instance, the Escape Game provides half a dozen different theme options.

You can choose among prison breaks, heists, and mystery markets. There is also a setting where you are uncovering secrets in an underwater laboratory with predators lurking about. It makes for one of the best group activities in Las Vegas and is especially good as a team-building experience.

  1. Hoover Dam

If you want to add some education and history to your Las Vegas trip, consider a tour of the Hoover Dam. You can learn about the important history of the dam, including its construction and how it helps provide water and hydroelectric power to millions of people in the Southwestern United States.

The tour takes you to the power station, where you can view the massive turbines that produce electricity. You can also walk across the top of the dam for some spectacular views of the surrounding landscape. The Hoover Dam is located on the Nevada-Arizona border, about a half hour from Las Vegas.
