You’ve seen free-fall stunts pulled off in the movies, and now Thrillz entertainment center is inviting you to experience the same exhilarating action firsthand. From 3D climbing walls, 70 feet of zip lines and a giant rotating sweeper, to a 360-degree virtual reality roller coaster and an Indiana Jones-style rolling log, the park offers something for both the young and the young at heart.

For an event like no other, the 70,000-square-foot facility houses a variety of activities that invite guests to experience the sense of free-falling from two-story obstacles onto giant stuntman airbags. Test your mettle on a swinging circus trapeze, or jump and dodge a giant sweeper, all while completely unharnessed and guided by Thrillz team leaders the entire time.

“We knew we had developed a game changing experience,” says co-founder Lisa Cannon. The lack of a harness really captures the feeling of free falling. “A lot of team activities are boring, this really gives you an opportunity to laugh at, or with, each other in a unique bonding experience.”

Lower impact activities include ax-throwing, giant dodgeball and wireless laser tag—a favorite among groups.

Thrillz offers groups a truly unique and rewarding experience. “An engaged workforce is a productive workforce; corporate events enhance synergy in the workplace by placing employees in an environment where they must rely on one another,” says Cannon. Every group event is customizable, providing the option to choose from two or three activities, as well as catering for any of Thrillz’ large meeting and event rooms. Pricing varies on your choice of “fly time,” while other attractions start at a set rate as low as $5 per person.

 

Over the years, any corporate event planner can admit to spending countless hours researching the perfect venue or vendors for their gatherings. After attending or hosting hundreds of events, New York-based Daphne Hoppenot was no stranger to this research and was frustrated by its repetitive nature. However, it was planning her wedding in 2018 that pushed her to realize the lack of resources in the corporate events market compared to the wedding industry, and set out to see if other meetings and events professionals were struggling with the same problem.  

 

Freelancing has become a new ball game since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, as many companies cannot afford to keep full-time positions, but still need those tasks completed. Although many more professionals have had to join the freelancing community since March, Tracy Judge had the passion for the freelancing community two years ago–long before the pandemic hit–and founded her company Soundings Connect in order to directly connect meetings and events industry freelancers with customers. 

 

Vintage is in! These days, companies and consumers alike are straddling the popular quirky vintage vibe with a modern, sleek aesthetic. For those finding themselves in this predicament when it comes to planning events, a food & beverage service on wheels may be the perfect solution.
