We had a great time! The game was well-planned and so much fun. We got to work together, solve puzzles and run around the Pedway. The facilitators were great - enthusiastic and funny. I set up the event for our company and got nothing but compliments and thank you's for picking something so cool. Not to mention the totally reasonable pricing! I highly recommend WaxWing and their team for personal or corporate events - but only if you have fun people to join you!! :) We had 45 people broken into 6 teams, and it was so organized - that is not easy to do with an event like this, and it was just run so well.

Our company used Waxwing for our team building event at the Art Institute. We worked with Andy to come up with a great custom game which was a combination of Labyrinth and Heist, it was sort of like The Amazing Race meets a Scavenger Hunt…in an Art Museum. Our group was separated into 8 teams of 3 and each had to find the same 20 pictures, the twist was that each team had 3 teams that they were “hunting” and 3 teams that were “hunting” them. If one of the groups stumbled upon each other, the hunting team gave the hunted team a puzzle, which they had to complete before moving on. The game really brought out the competitive spirit in our participants (who knew lawyers were so competitive). We had no issues planning the event and I found Andy to be very informative, helpful and easy to work with. The day of our event,Nate and Nick met us at the Art Institute and provided instructions and guided us through the event. They were both very helpful and easy to work with. Overall we had a great experience and I would recommend this group for your personal or corporate event. I am not sure how we will top this event at our next meeting! Bring your competitive spirit and have fun!

We participated in an event as a team and had a great time. It was challenging, fun, and a cool way to run around the loop.

It was fun but getting it arranged was rather difficult. The options aren't easily accessible and my emails got messed up so it took a few attempts at reaching them before I got an answer. Once we got there it was fun to see people in their costumes trying to figure out who was a "fed" who was "mobster" and who the "rats" were.
