Top Gun Events always deliver!

With over 25 years of experience in all types of event management, we have unrivalled knowledge/expertise to organise seamless, innovative events, from inception to completion with high quality and outstanding professionalism.

Listed below are just a small sample of activities and events that Top Gun Events have previously organized/event managed. However, we specialize in bespoke corporate events, so let us transform a very basic brief into a creative, innovative extravaganza:-

ACTION & ADVENTURE ACTIVITIES

Laser Clay Shooting
This brand new attraction is one of the rare activities, which can be enjoyed indoors or out of doors and is the fastest growing sport worldwide. This shooting sport combines skill with excitement, at any level, and is extremely unique.

There are no bullets fired, no recoil action, or hearing protection required and most importantly no projectile from the gun whatsoever. A modified shotgun fires infrared beams at clays launched from a conventional clay launcher, whenever the trigger is pulled the scoreboard generates a shotgun sound along with a hit or a miss!
Even the very realistic sound of the shotgun being fired is controllable! The game is electronic/laser, with a large visual electronic score board to amuse both the participants and spectators.

Laser Clay Shooting can be played indoors, outdoors in daylight or at night. For use out doors a minimum area of 30 metres x 10 metres is required. Indoor a minimum area of 5 meters x 5 meters is required, so it is extremely versatile. The System is completely mobile and can be taken anywhere in the world for competitions or just fun for all ages!!

Blind Land Rover Driving
Yes believe it or not, even blindfolded you can take full control of a powerful vehicle and navigate around a challenging obstacle course. It is not about speed but ability and control.

JCB Challenge
Ever wanted to drive a digger but could never legally manage it? Then let us help you, as you must manoeuvre your machine into place to move and position objects accurately to gain points. Let’s hope that fingertip control won’t let you down!!!

Quad Bikes
Kerry Quads is Ireland’s largest Quad Centre, offering the ultimate in off-road trails, which are tailored to suit all levels of skill and ability. The Quad Trek is a thrilling experience incorporating mountains/forestry terrain, negotiating bogs, streams, gradients of varying degrees, which proves an invigorating experience.

As well as an exhilarating experience, your guests enjoy magnificent views of the Glens and the challenging terrain of the forests, encountering river crossings, hill climbs as well as tricky man made obstacles.

BATTLE ZONE ADVENTURES

Top Gun Events have invested in the latest state of the art, laser shooting war game equipment, as used by armies worldwide to train their troops. Unlike Paintball, there are no painful paint pellets to bruise you. You do not wear a ‘smelly’ facemask that steams up impairing your vision, the range and accuracy are far greater than paintball and most importantly there are no hidden extra costs for ammunition etc..

All of our guns include grenade launchers, and offer laser sights with phenomenal accuracy. All you wear is a military helmet and carry a gun. Fun can be had at our dedicated war game site with many bunkers, bridges and river crossing or we can transport our equipment to a venue of your choice. Develop fantastic team building, competitive scenarios, whether your battle-zone consists of machine gun manoeuvres, or grenade launch strategies, you will be guaranteed adrenaline-filled fun!

These are some of the Battle Zone Game scenarios: -

The Embassy Siege, there is a price on each soldier’s head with a bonus bounty for the Diplomat. The defending team must stop the soldiers, particularly the Diplomat from entering the Embassy.

Find and Defend the Parachutist
A parachutist has been dropped behind enemy lines with a disc containing classified data. The parachute does not open, resulting in sudden death. The General has ordered further men to be dropped to rescue the disc in order to restore national security!
Defend the Coral At All Costs.
Two warring countries are in battle in the Coral Zone. The soldiers that capture the most of the enemy in the shortest time win bonus points but also receive a ‘come-back to-life-card’ when you are about to bite the dust!
Seek, Destroy & Rescue the Hostage Flags
One team of soldiers have 5 lives, 50 rounds of ammunition and 10 grenades. Their mission, should they choose to accept it, is to infiltrate the enemy camp and rescue the hostage flags. The enemy are aware of their task and have 50% less ammunition but are totally concealed in the undergrowth!

Last Man Standing
Each man / woman for themselves. Once the General gives the orders, all military personnel flee into the forest. Dog eat Dog strategy applies – the last man standing lives to win the points.

Multi Ski Obstacle Course
Hilarious game as grown adults attempt to negotiate an obstacle course shackled to skis but these are no ordinary skis – they are skis designed for four people. A hysterical sight as participants stumble and blunder their way around the course.

Soap Box Kart Challenge
You are given the skeleton of a soapbox car plus fun money to purchase different parts for your kart. You need to solve clues to find the other parts. Then using your skills we want you to build a go-kart that will have to carry 3 people in a downhill mini challenge. Which team will travel the furthest distance???

Celtic Olympics Games
Always dreamed of competing in the Olympics representing your country?? Well now you can, joining an array of hilarious but very competitive Irish Games.
Points make prizes, however our medals are not real gold!!!

Lock Zone
The participants will be given a map of an area along with a compass. Puzzles will need to be solved, waypoints found, numbers obtained for your combination lock, locate the lock zones, retrieve the locks, try not to get shot and return to the neutral zone. Oh and that’s only the start of it. Once in the Neutral Zone your team will have to accomplish a number of team challenge before all your time runs out, so as to score the most amount of points possible. Beware of other competitors, they are armed!!!

All participants will be equipped with a laser pulse ranger guns. You will have to manoeuvre around the course without being killed off. Everyone is competing against each other and the clock. Will you be the hunted or will you become the hunter.

The Brainteaser
Solve the sixteen brainteasers to get the message - but you lose points for every wrong answer input into the computer. And then when your brain is exhausted there’s a very large model to make! The winner is the team with the highest score from both parts of fun filled event.

Hollywood Dream
Are you better in front of the camera of behind? Can you write scripts, or would you be better in the make up and costume department?

In the Hollywood Dream you and your team will have to create a movie with various props and themes. It had better be good to be nominated for the Top Gun Oscar’s Ceremony! Participants are given video cameras, CD player and a list of items required for their movie making. The object is to shoot a 20-minute film using real time editing. This masterpiece of cinematography will then be the nominated for a mini Oscar Ceremony, with the various voting categories such as best actor/actress etc.
Will you be James Bond or Brook Bond !!!!!!

Mission Possible
This event can be run anywhere in the world, however, we typically use a very unusual venue to run many exciting activities, incorporating the splendid surroundings, enhancing any event. Just outside the infamous City of Lakes, Killarney, Ireland, there is a beautiful wildlife sanctuary stretching over some 50 acres of scenic land. The wild life park hosts some of the rarest animals in Ireland to charm and entertain your participants. Lilly a ‘lunatic’ Llama, Oliver the temperamental Ostrich, Eddie the Golden Eagle, Mischievous monkeys to name but a few.

Can your teams discover where the cryptic clues are located before the enemy beats them to it?? The pace is fast, the laughs are plentiful; as competing teams negotiate their way around the carefully planned strategic routes, working together to complete tasks, solve trivia all within a challenging time limit. Hilarious fun!

Take no prisoners – we need photographic evidence for those crucial extra points. Let your imagination run wild, as the more creative the shot the higher the points, but just remember as you attempt to capture the Llama in your photo – it spits!!

Inflatable Fun & Frolics

Stretch yourself to the limit on the Bungee Run, or negotiate your way around the Terminator Obstacle Course with numerous hidden pit falls. Impress your Cleopatra with your Gladiator Jousting skills. Bend it like Beckham tied to the Human Table Football. Become Japanese for the day whilst enjoying Sumo Wresting. These are just some of the It’s-a-Knockout Inflatable Madness Competitions, which prove to be the funniest and testing activities that we can offer.

Egg Launch & Grand Finale Egg Launch
Teams compete to build a contraption from an assortment of equipment, which is capable of launching an egg the furthest distance (encourages people to work together). The grand finale is filled with laughs and ‘yolks’ when all teams set up their ‘contractions’ to launch their eggs into the horizon or not as the case may be!!!

Minefield
Manoeuvre your way across booby-trapped land – a game of logic and strategy. There is only one route across the minefield; will you have enough time to make it? Will you make the right decisions?

All Adrift
Life or death situation. Each team are cast adrift 100 miles away from civilisation. Your team have a choice of 14 life saving items, to help them survive. Big dilemma - only 10 items are allowed onboard. A great game of strategy but not without heated debates as the team rank the 10 items in order of importance. Will you sink or swim?

Multi Ski Obstacle Course
Hilarious game as grown adults attempt to negotiate an obstacle course shackled to skis but these are no ordinary skis – they are skis designed for four people. A hysterical sight as the team stumble and blunder their way around the course.

Off-Road 4 X 4 Jeep Global Positioning Treks (GPS)
What better way to see magnificent sights than a mixture of off and on road trails? Each team is issued with cryptic clues, which will be crucial to their survival in the wilds of the countryside. The participants negotiate their way around, deciphering clues, collecting objects and information along with the obligatory photographic evidence! Add to this the need to use G.P.S. navigational equipment to assist you along with metal detectors so you can see this is no ordinary trek. Oh and did I mention you might have to drive blindfolded for a bit!


Lake, Boat & Hoof Challenge

Hoof Challenge
Teams will be put onto ‘quirky’ methods of transport to negotiate their way around the beautiful City of Lakes, Killarney. This challenge is Killarney’s answer to Red Rum. Each team will be under starters orders and set off at various intervals. The race is on as the teams trot from clue to clue by horse and carriage. Extra points will be awarded if you can out talk the Pony & Trap Guide who usually talks for Ireland!!! Your horses will take you to a beautiful lakeside location for lunch.

Captain Birds Eye

Now ‘me olde sea dogs’ you will need to find your ‘sea legs’ as the teams find their nautical clues gliding across the lakes of Killarney by boat. After ‘hauling anchor’ the nautical race is on, gliding across the lake solving clues and trivia. The boats will lead you to a stunning historical site where your next adventure begins.

Foot Challenges
Now back on steady ground, the teams will be enjoy racing around the centre of Killarney on foot. Can your group discover where the cryptic clues are located before the enemy beats them to it?? The pace is fast, the laughs are plentiful; as competing teams negotiate their way around the carefully planned strategic routes, working together to complete tasks, solve trivia all within a challenging time limit. Hilarious!

Motor, Sea & Wheels Adventure
The Motor Sea and Wheels Adventure Activity is based around Waterville and Valentia Island but can be adapted to other parts of Ireland, subject to a site inspection

Each team are given three forms of transport, to negotiate and navigate their way to the safe houses! The only way to reach the safe houses throughout the day is to solve clues and trivia, Global Positioning Systems, maps, charts etc…
The modes of transport are:

Life On The Ocean Wave

Take no prisoners – we need photographic evidence for those crucial extra points.
Let your imagination run wild, as the more creative the shot the higher the points, but remember you will loose points for rude pictures, but I am sure you will have fun posing for them!!

Off-Road 4 X 4 Jeep Global Positioning Treks (GPS)
What better way to see magnificent sights than a mixture of off and on road trails? Each team is issued with cryptic clues, which will be crucial to their survival in the wilds of the countryside. The participants negotiate their way around, deciphering clues, collecting objects and information along with the obligatory photographic evidence! Add to this the need to use G.P.S. navigational equipment to assist you along with metal detectors so you can see this is no ordinary trek.

Smash & Grab
Your team must successfully smash all your colours, grab your coloured bag and then follow the enclosed instructions. Sounds easy don’t you think but this task will depend on how good the aims are and also how well you all can work together to accomplish the different team building scenarios. Are you up to the physical work needed for some tasks, do you have a logical mind or are you just going to follow the team and hope they know what’s going on?

Grand Prix Fever - Scalextric

Forest Activities
Where better to get involved in an all out battle against the opposition using the latest state of the art laser war game weaponry. After you’ve discovered whether you should be a commando or not you can see how well you work together with your team again in the afternoon as you compete against the others in Lock Zone, why not add some Big Boys Toys to the day by trying your hand at digger driving, try to move through the course lifting and digging as you go!

Adventure Days
Rock Climbing, Abseiling, Canoeing or Wind Surfing are just a few of the Adventure Day Activities to thrill and excite. Why not try some of these adventurous activities all pitched to your own level nothing too hard or scary (unless you want it that way!).

A great way to conquer some fears, try something new and of course work together in your team or group, as you encourage each other to complete tasks, score points oh and of course get over that 50ft cliff!

Treasure Days
Why not just try a pure Treasure Day where firstly you are set off on bikes to get your bearings of the area and pick up vital clues. Next you are in the hot seat navigating you’re way by GPS and map to different areas of the countryside in a 4 x 4 vehicle to try and find buried items using your metal detector. Then finally to ease you into the night you set off on the nautical challenge, in a high powered cruiser on the open waves, to complete the last few tasks for the day while enjoying the views and refreshments!

Alternatively you could opt for the Hoof & Lake Challenge, which will take you through some of the most spectacular scenery in Ireland, by cart and by boat.

The Kinsale Day
This activity is run in the stunning harbour town on Kinsale in West Cork, (however as with the majority of our events we are able to travel to alternate locations subject to a site inspection.) The Kinsale Day includes two activities from our inflatable madness section combined with laser clays and team building activities. Run over a full day the group is divided into smaller teams competing against each other in a fun competitive format rotating around all the activities throughout the day.

Ready Steady Cook
Budding Delia Smiths’ troop off to the fish and produce markets to start the day’s events. Each team purchases ingredients for the opposing team, working to a fixed budget. The challenge is for each team to prepare a gourmet meal within a limited time frame, to impress judges with their flair and presentation. Let’s just hope sheep eyes or slippery eels are not on the shopping list!!!

Antiques Hunt
Participants are taken to a grand Stately Home to enjoy the splendour of their environment. The teams are then let loose to explore the stunning pieces of art and the challenge begins.

Not knowing whether an item is a priceless heirloom or a phoney mock item each team deliberates and prices each item out of the selection offered for the judges.
Amazing revelations will shock and amuse the teams as the judges reveal all.

Spiders Web Challenge
As the title suggests, a spiders web course is ready and waiting for willing participants to slither and slide, bend and stretch, negotiating their bodies through the contraption, without getting tangled up. Visual & fun for both spectators and spider challengers.

Raft Building
Teams are given basic but necessary equipment to build a life saving raft against the clock and other teams. Not only must the raft be of an innovative build, it will need to be robust enough to transport the team across the stretch of water to safety.

Robin Hood behold, most people never realise their potential until they have stretched their bows and arrows!

Tug Of War

See how far you fling the boot. A very competitive game for all.


TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITIES

WE RUN NUMEROUS TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITIES HERE ARE JUST A FEW LISTED BELOW:-

How about devoting the entire day to teambuilding, problem solving and communication oh and of course fun! Team Building Events can sometimes be perceived as a lot of analysis and facilitation! We can work in both the more traditional way to accommodate you, or if you prefer, a more informal way of discovering how well you and your peers/colleagues work together. So whether its communication, leadership, teamwork or just plain fun either option is our speciality!

How about mixing together Lock Zone, Smash & Grab and Divide & Conquer to get those brains going. I’m pretty sure we could combine War Game Adventures in here somewhere with these activities, if it sounds too much like work. These tasks will address a number of areas including leadership, planning, role recognition, time-management and delegation skills amongst others. The day can be as formal or informal as required by the group and will be entirely geared towards your needs.

Survival Weekend
Taken by boat to a remote Island, can you survive without your home comforts? The only shelter is what you build, and food that you catch & cook. Robinson Crusoe survived can you?

Using Mother Nature as your source, the team will combine their knowledge to build fires, to cook your rations.

You will be given various tasks to complete to lead you to shelter. Further cryptic clues to solve will test your navigational skills, as you are guided to parts of the island where team-building activities await you.

Cops & Robbers
A robbery is linked to the safety of a visiting foreign dignitary. The only way to secure her safety is to apprehend the robbers! Can the police find them in time - and keep within budget?
The objective is to locate and surround the suspects. Each "squad" has its own budget and access, at a price, to underworld informants and eyewitness accounts. Sooner or later squads realise that all the necessary information is beyond the limits of their individual budgets. Time to start talking to other squads. The whole group needs to agree a way to purchase the right information, to piece together the movements of the robbers and move to a final arrest - but competitive instincts invariably hinder progress!
The concept of collaborative teamwork is fundamental to business success. This activity opens the doors to information sharing, communication channels, honesty, and united team success. The resistance of any team to join in this process sparks enormous discussion and leads to a template for more effective internal communications.
'Cops & Robbers is a great success and never fails to intrigue and frustrate!'

The Pyramid Phoenix Game
Pharaohs, Mummies and Egyptians are all involved in of this mind bending game.
Ideal as a starter to teamwork, leadership and managing time. Skill sets identified include problem solving and communication.
Both intellectual and practical teamwork is challenged in this fun exercise. It demonstrates the importance of planning; understanding the problem; identifying strengths and weaknesses; quality control to avoid rework; morals, ethics and creativity.

Montgomery’s Revenge
Montgomery is dead and his safe lies undiscovered! Can his followers find the loot together - or, as Monty predicted, will they fight and squabble to the end?
Each team are given a brief, a map, a plan of a disused mine shaft (where the loot is hidden) and some security codes and locks. For each question correctly answered teams are rewarded with pieces equipment desperately needed to get down the mineshaft. The race is on - until teams realise they do not have all the necessary resources for getting the treasure. Will individual teams waste valuable gold, buying on the black market - in an attempt to take the treasure for themselves - or will they persuade the other teams that the only way is to work together and share the treasure?
Teams often see themselves as rivals, not allies. Teams succeed in this lively exercise only if they co-operate with each other, share information and build a trusting and honest climate. Often teams will jump into the challenge without discussing the various strategies required for success. This leads to wasted time, many mistakes being made - and unclaimed treasure.

Follow The Leader (Leadership Skills Challenge)

An excursion to the beautiful Church Island can be won and there are points to collect en route. Will your team run away with the prize?
In this tabletop simulation each team first chooses a leader. Each leader is given a €300 budget, a map and 15 minutes to familiarise themselves with the Brief. During this period the rest of the teams complete questionnaires about leadership qualities - for discussion later. Essentially teams must collect as many points as possible by visiting post offices and lighthouses - and beaches to get buckets of sand! Leaders, with their own, chosen style of leadership, brief their teams and oversee the activity. Information on costs, ferry timetables, time and distance, overnight accommodation etc are available from a computer databank - but information costs money - and eats into a tight budget! Leaders must aim for a carefully constructed plan that keeps everyone on board, fits the constraints and picks up as many points as possible!

Follow The Leader clearly illustrates some important requirements of good leadership, the need to brief the team well, to coordinate the strategic planning process, to keep a watchful eye on budgets and other constraints, to review and to keep good communications within the team. A challenging exercise which gives leaders and teams a great opportunity to demonstrate their skills. Ideal for assessing both leadership styles and team roles.

Treasury Team
A treasure chest lies hidden in the Forest. It's all yours - if you can find it - and the vital key - before anyone else! Briefs are issued to the competing teams, containing vital clues to the whereabouts of the four keys. So team members must realise that they need to share their information. Once the location of the keys is discovered, teams plan the fastest route to collect them and so get to the treasure. The Trainer holds vital items that teams need to locate the treasure and get it back to the start point. And the quickest team wins!
Treasury Team brings the outdoors indoors with a classic team challenge. It allows teams to put all their interpersonal and team skills into action in a fun way, to demonstrate that they are the top banana! Use at the start of an event to identify weaknesses or at the end to practise what's been learnt.

Survival of the Fittest
Are you properly prepared for survival in hostile mountains - to accomplish a mission? If your morale gauge touches 'zero' - it's a helicopter rescue!
Ancient and priceless stone must be located on the mountain map. Working from details on the map, teams must plan a route to collect the stones. Load has a bearing on travel speed, but not having the necessary equipment may cause problems later! Finally, they must put their plans into action. Weather conditions, via audiotape, can cause delay, and affect morale - but morale gets a welcome boost for every piece of stone retrieved.
Survive is a substantial, exciting activity tests organisation, planning and decision-making skills. It also makes the link between good preparation and high morale and motivation. Brings out the Indiana Jones in us all!
