If you’re looking for some extra team-building outside of your meeting, take advantage of the exciting opportunities found in Irving. Plan an action-packed outing to PINSTACK and connect with your team over bowling, go-karts, and rock climbing, or by signing up for one of nearly a dozen team-building packages. If your crew is looking for something more challenging, then lock everyone in a room together at Escape Rooms HQ. Here, they will have to rely on their wits and teamwork skills to solve a puzzle to escape.
