Exploring the city on your own is fun and checking it out with your partner can, well, double your pleasure. But if you want to really have a ball, get a whole group on board. While touring museums, checking out the latest blockbuster or shopping are always great standbys, we have something a little more adventurous for your crew--Bayou City Style.

One, two, three, throw

If you’re looking for something completely different, we just may have found it for you. Axe throwing. You heard that right. It’s hard to imagine any better way to let your stress go and to keep your eyes on the prize at Houston Axe Throwing.

Fall from the “sky”

For some people, jumping out of a plane is a little too extreme, even for a thrill-seeker. Indoor sky diving at iFLY Houston is the perfect compromise for daredevils who don’t want to be too far off the ground. But don’t be fooled, while you might not be in the great blue beyond, you’re still flying through the air with the greatest of ease!

Escape your fate!

Nothing requires true teamwork quite like escaping from somewhere with no way out, well no obvious way out. This is the time to put your best gang together and work as a team. You just may be surprised at how fast you can escape and who turns out to be your go-to girl or guy. There are escape rooms all over the Houston area, including Cipher, Houston Escape Room and The Escape Hunt Experience, to name just a few.

Get your goal

Get in an inflatable bubble. Play soccer. Those are the logistics at HTX Bubble Soccer. The result is far from complex and definitely far more hilarious. And if that’s not your thing, they also offer archery tag or soccer darts. But if you can let yourself look a little silly, you’ll also be letting yourself have a whole lot of fun.

Get pedaling

Enjoy your favorite brew while sightseeing around town (and burn a few calories along the way). These mobile bars, Pedal Party and Trolley Pub Houston for example, are perfect for groups, and best enjoyed when thirsty! So grab some friends and customize your groups’ pub crawl or dinner plans with the hottest ride in Houston.

Tag your friends

Ok, so maybe laser tag seems like been there done that. But let’s be honest, it’s way too much fun to suit up, arm yourself, and take down your friends. Battlefield Houston combines the heart-pounding action of paintball with the safety of laser tag within its indoor battlefield or at your venue of choice. The best part is, there’s no skill required. If you miss, the only thing you’ll make is a grand mess and you don’t even have to clean it up.

Segway your way

Sightsee through Houston without worrying about the friend who always walks too fast – or the one who walks too slowly. You can take in the history, the art, the gayborhood, the road less traveled, or whatever you’re into. Just let your guide know what side of Houston your group would love to explore, and Segway Tours of Houston will handle the rest.

Get dancing

Yes, you can take a pole dancing class. But at Inner Me Studios, you can also take a class in aerial, hip hop, self-defense, belly dancing, and about a zillion other courses. Choose whatever style class calls your name and bring your friends to a scheduled class, or plan a dance party for just your gaggle (complete with videographer so you’ll have proof of all the fun you had).
