COMPETITIVE TEAM BUILDING in chicago

Competition builds character, but it can be hard to draw the line. At Accelerate, we believe racing is the ultimate way to let loose, have fun and build lasting memories along the way. Our popular Blindfold Challenge, Pit Crew Challenge, or Grand Prix formats are sure to bring your team together. We have a dedicated Events Captain here to take care of your needs.

Of course, we’re partial to indoor electric karting, axe throwing, virtual reality, and video games. That’s because we’ve seen firsthand how happy people from organizations of all sizes in almost every industry leave happier with each other after just one day here.

What starts as a little trepidation–” Will I be any good? Will I finish first or last?”–quickly turns into simple joy. In the process, people get to compete with one another, which again makes that competitive edge that much sharper when it really counts.

They also get to work as teams. One of the most popular activities at Accelerate Indoor Speedway & Events is the blindfold challenge where the driver has to navigate a course with twists and turns while a teammate outside the course has to direct every single move. The first team to cross the finish line wins, and everyone leaves with more patience and understanding of how to connect with team members than before.

CATCH GREATNESS BY CHASING FUN

Invest in the process, not in the outcome. It’s the mantra that brings together the world’s greatest guides, teachers, coaches, and leaders. Of course, in business, sports, or any other team activities, outcomes are what keep you in the game. Yet, when you focus solely on outcomes and are only happy when things go exactly your way, you set yourself and your team up for disappointment and ultimately failure.

Not to mention, nothing beats the adrenaline rush and dopamine hit that comes from winning. The key to winning early and often, though, comes from practice and process. It’s turning every day–just showing up and being present into a Victory Lap. Make the process fun, and the team will always prosper.

TEAM BUILDING

The great thing about corporate team building events is that they are usually fun, a chance to get away from the office and disguise that process of coming together and learning how to get better into something that seems different, yet really isn’t, and takes the edge off to sharpen the edge your team brings every day.

It could be an outdoor adventure, a group art activity, or just about anything that builds trust and strengthens the bonds that hold your team together. Learning about each other, what keeps them getting up every morning, and what they want in life and in their jobs all make the day away from the office that much more productive than most days in the office and, in turn, make all the days after even better.

OWN THE TRACK

If you’re looking to make an impression, reserving our track to race exclusively with your group is a good place to start. Reserving our entire facility—now that’s how you leave your mark.

AXE THROWING

Axe throwing, which has become one of the fastest-growing sports in North America, brings a different vibe or speed if you will. There is primal satisfaction to the sight, sound, and poetry of a perfectly thrown axe sticking in a wooden target.

VIRTUAL REALITY

Or, if you want something more high-tech, try a team virtual reality game where you have to save the world from Zombies that are far scarier than your competitors.

“Spent my 40th here did 2 races and Axe throwing. Brandon was great at explaining the rules and was a dedicated supervisor. Luci was great at pointers on the track. Josh H was great and very helpful while racing. All in all I’m definitely coming back to race and throw axes”

Had a “Team Building” event with my work family. We had a wonderful outing! Not crowded at all — we went mid-day during the week (best time to go). Customer service was excellent ( Caitlin G., was our host; she was awesome and very helpful). The carts are super fast; the ax throwing is a change of pace and fun as well. Highly recommend for a fun time out with family and/or friends!

We had an amazing time celebrating our daughter’s 13th birthday here! Pat was a great host even while navigating several teenage girls! Highly recommend celebrating any type of event here whether it’s for a child, teen or adult. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Last week our company conducted a Team Building event. We had an amazing time at this Speedway. You wouldn’t think those go karts had that much power, but they do. This place has axe 🪓 throwing and a virtual reality section that seemed awesome. Overall I will be coming back to this hidden gem 💎. Also, Caitlin was our guide for this event. Promote her immediately, place her in a next level position, she will excel! Thank you Caitlin.

The staff here are extremely helpful and positive professionals. Especially Esther at the front desk, who was able to make my son’s birthday an amazing experience with VDI games and speedway races.

I set up a company event here and it was easy to do. The staff was very flexible and accommodating since we had approx. 75 people. Everyone had a blast and loved to find out the results of the winners at the end. We had about 2 hours to race and this worked out well because everyone that wanted to race had multiple opportunities to do so. They also provided us with a conference room and another room for the catering company to use to set up lunch. Everyone left happy and would recommend for other company parties and events.

I’ve worked with this company and am blown away not just by their culture, engaged employees, and gorgeous facilities (which are perfect for combining rip-roaring fun and a meeting/training session), but also their $10,000 all electric go-karts are mind-blowing.

Mike Weinberg

Our event for the buyer summit was most enjoyable for all who attended. Thank you and your staff for making this a memorable occasion.

Bill

Food was great, it was fun to watch the teachers race, the arcade games were fun.

My friends and I went there for a bachelor party and we had an amazing time! The karts and axes are why we went there, but the friendly staff and the great experience are why we’re coming back!

COVID-19: Sanitation stations were everywhere and all employees seemed to adhere to safety policies.  Had a wonderful time & I’m sure anyone that visits will say the same.

Justin G.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ We were in town for a baseball tourney and were looking for some indoor fun. This place was “Covid” ready, with sanitizers and social distancing enforced. All employees were safety conscious and very helpful.

Robert Post

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ We had a great time! The staff was friendly. And as far as COVID goes, everything was safe. They had to ask some women to leave who were not following the mask guidelines. Great place.

Bret Williams

Great time with the family. They have taken extreme caution to keep the place clean, required face masks and had plenty hand sanitizer. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Kristine Williams

My Need for Speed was quenched this weekend. My family was treated like ALL STARS, and this is why I’ve selected ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!! And as for safety and cleanliness… Let’s just say, I felt safer there than any Walmart or Grocery store.

My boyfriend and I came in for our one year anniversary and a blast! The staff was extremely helpful since it was our first time in! They’re keeping things super clean and safe from racing to COVID-19. Definitely a fun and family friendly place! We’ll be back!
