Want something really different for your Birthday Party or Hen’s Party?
Whilst we generally work with corporate groups, some of the best races we’ve ever hosted have been for groups of friends –
Our Amazing Race is fun rather than tough, it’s a bit like a scavenger hunt that has been packed with fun activities –
Forget getting stuck at a long table and not getting a chance to mingle. You’ll get outdoors, get to talk to everyone and complete an activity together that people will still be talking about next year.
This activity is perfect for birthday parties (16 years +), family and school reunions or engagement parties. We work with hen’s parties too, as long as everyone is happy to wait till the end to get a drink. The event suits everyone, young and old, introverts and extroverts ….anyone fit enough for a brisk walk can manage it easily.
Birthday Parties: Brings friends and family together and creates a really special and memorable “big birthday”. Here is what Jenny Prosser had to say about her 40th:
Hey Cate, thank you and your staff yet again for helping me celebrate my 40th birthday “Amazing Race” style. I think by the end of the day everybody understood my love for this concept.
I had the best day and everyone else has commented that they loved that it was such a different style for a birthday party. Everybody mingled and laughed and had shared moments doing things out of their comfort zone.
The enthusiasm you and your staff showed was brilliant, obviously you have all found your callings. If ever I can help recommend this to anyone please call me. I loved it and am so keen to see the photos. You guys rule.
Cheers, Jenny (Jenny Prosser, 40th Birthday – also the photo at the very top of the page).
Hen’s Day: If you are planning a Hen’s day, we’ve had Brides call us after their wedding to say how much this influenced the success of the whole occasion because people made friends on the Race that they were so happy to party with at the wedding.
Hi Cate, Thanks so much for Saturday we all had a great day. Everyone had a fantastic time and really enjoyed themselves. The photo’s are awesome, everyone has loved them.
People know each other so much better now. I will be recommending the Amazing Race to my boss for team bonding events throughout the year so I may see you again soon
Regards, Katie McGovern (Organiser of Jamie’s hen party, Manly Amazing Race)
Making Your Party Extra Special
We’ve been working with teams to design unforgettable Christmas parties for 10 years and are more than happy to consult with you about add-ons and recommend the venues that are great to work with.
One common recommendation is to add a 50 minute water taxi leg to your event (available on the Botanic Gardens, Rocks, Cockle Bay and Kirribilli courses). One advantage of the water taxis is that they can drop you to a waterfront venue in Woolloomoolloo or on the west of the Bridge (even Cockatoo Island).
If you need to start a bit later or have limited time we have another event, Paparazzi, which also works particularly well at Christmas because the walking distance is shorter and it isn’t as hot and sweaty. Paparazzi is a brilliant precursor to any activity because you wind up with a whole bunch of photos to laugh at during your party.
It is best to get organised early to get the venue bookings for your finishing functions. Most will be booked out before September (and our key dates will more than likely be closed around that time too).
Give us a call on 9949 2989, after a short conversation about your team we’ll fire some suggestions that will make this a party to remember.
Priced From $1,200 for 20 participants (includes gst – this is our minimum price).
Includes logistics, planning, equipment, a small trophy and 2 – 6 friendly, professional facilitators. We upload your photos to Dropbox to share after the event. We guarantee that the majority of people will enjoy the event, if not, you can request a refund.
