Are you planning a meeting where there will be some downtime to fill? Rain or shine, winter or summer, Wichita has you covered with indoor and outdoor options for cultivating delegate networking and relationship-building opportunities. 

A group of professionals rides through Wichita on a Brew Wagon Tour bus

Take a tour

The perfect way for a group to get out and explore Wichita while bonding is to take a tour. The city’s Q-Line is a fun, free way to explore the city’s downtown. On the Q-Line's 3.3 mile route, meeting delegates can ride from the Historic Delano District to Clifton Square to take in local shops, restaurants, breweries and more.

If you have a smaller group of beer or wine enthusiasts, they can hop aboard one of the Brew Wagon Tours. Groups of up to 14 can enjoy a three-hour excursion around Wichita as they try some of the city’s award-winning breweries like Central Standard Brewing, or sip wine at Jenny Dawn Cellars. They can also check out crafted beverages from Inspirit Kombucha Brewing Co., White Crow Cider Company and Apollo Fermentations. These tours are fully customized, so all they have to do is sit back and enjoy the ride.

Get physical

Get your steps in while enjoying the 224 acres and 400 species of animals at the internationally recognized Sedgwick County Zoo. Or enjoy the exotic animals at Tanganyika Wildlife Park. Both zoos have rental space for off-site meetings.

Groups can also opt to engage in a friendly race along the Arkansas River by renting kayaks, pedal boats, scooters and more from Boats and Bikes. If you want to keep your crew on their toes, Wichita gives you that chance at Chicken N Pickle. Indoor and outdoor pickle ball courts are available for reservation seven days a week.

Try something new

Groups looking to build upon problem-solving skills and camaraderie can book a session at The Room, Wichita’s escape room locale. Your meeting delegates can also try their hand at axe throwing at Axe to Grind or Blade and Timber. Private event space with food and drink options are available. You'll find the location of both sites attractive as well - just blocks away from Century II convention center. 

With opportunities like these and so many more, you shouldn’t have trouble pleasing groups of any size, age or interest when it comes to after-hours team-building fun in the heart of the country.
