    Stunt Your Team's Growth

Channel your team’s inner action heroes with a little team-building at Stunt Ranch, located just outside of Austin. The 22-acre ranch was founded (and is owned) by Steve Wolf, a film and television producer and president of Wolf Stuntworks, Inc. Your group can challenge each other in zorb ball races (they’re like mega-sized hamster balls for humans), zip lining, hatchet/spear tossing and more. You can even build and detonate a fireball or compete in the “Rescue the Boss” challenge. The ranch also offers space for corporate team-building, bachelor/bachelorette and birthday parties, 5Ks, and private venue rentals.

For more than 300 years, ranching has been a way of life—and business—in Texas. The uniquely Texan ranch experience has captured the imagination of the world, and ranches have served as uncredited “stars” for some of Hollywood’s most iconic productions: from Reata, the fictitious ranch depicted in the classic movie “Giant,” to the glamorous Southfork Ranch, home of the primetime soap opera “Dallas.” Longhorns, horses, cowboys, rodeos, 10-gallon hats and cowboy boots: There is an alluring mystique surrounding Texas ranches.

 

In November, Dallas-based Todd Interests opened Thompson Dallas, part of hospitality brand Thompson Hotels. Thompson Dallas features 219 rooms, including 52 suites, two penthouse suites, and two culinary destinations.

 

When it comes to planning events, planners must be choosy when determining the venue. Setting priorities like location, size, and technological capabilities sets them up for a successful event, but often forces them to weed out dozens of venues due to their limitations. Although sometimes, a venue comes along that provides the perfect location, high-speed technology, and much more without having to compromise.
