Hosting Your Next Corporate Event or Party at Atlantis Banquets + Events
Who says you can’t mix business with pleasure? Hosting a corporate event or party is a great way to lighten the mood at the office and help bring your employees together outside the office. There are many reasons you may choose to host company picnics, corporate retreats and other events, such as training, to give back to your employees or to celebrate a major milestone for your company.
If you’re planning to host any type of office party, conference or event for your staff, choosing the right location is priority number one. Atlantis Banquets and Events offers plenty of options to help you create an occasion that will be remembered for years to come. We have meeting areas available to work for groups ranging from 25 to 1000 guests or more. Let us show you a few of the unique reasons why Atlantis Banquets and Events is the perfect choice for your gathering.
One of the popular “surprises” we offer is a Penguin Meet & Greet. This is a great way to bring some levity to any event. One of our educators will bring a penguin to your event for a group photo along with a quick discussion about our penguins and their conservation status in the world.
We also offer private tour boat excursions that take you down the Peconic River and into Flanders Bay. Conducted by Aquarium Educators, the adventure offers plenty of opportunity for hands-on exploration while promoting environmental awareness and education about the Peconic Estuary. The Atlantis Explorer Tour Boat sets sail seasonally (weather permitting) directly behind the Aquarium. For an additional fee, we can also serve wine and cheese on board for your group. The Atlantis Explorer Tour Boat can fit up to 70 guests.
At the Long Island Aquarium, your guests will enjoy inspired cuisine prepared by trained chefs who use only the finest and freshest ingredients. You can choose from a variety of dining options, including a seated dinner reception, butler-passed hors d’ oeuvres, cocktail party, or a buffet dinner. Menus for corporate events will provide everything you need from a working breakfast to a themed lunch and plenty of break-time snacks that will keep your group energized and focused on the tasks at hand. Menu pricing ranges from $31.95++ to $84.95++ plus 20% admin fee and sales tax per person depending on selection.
We offer four different team-building programs that focus on the leadership and team skills essential to any successful organization. Our experienced facilitators work closely with each client to customize a program that meets your objectives, team development goals, and desired level of physical involvement. Points of discussion at the end of each program will include leadership, delegation, decision-making, communication, time management, and much more. Pricing starts at $38.95++ plus 20% admin fee and sales tax per person. These team-building activities include:
Escape from Atlantis
Welcome to the Escape from Atlantis adventure where participants can climb into the skins, fins or feathers of an animal exhibited here at the Long Island Aquarium. The objective for the teams is to plan an escape route based on their observations of the construction of their exhibit and how its layout can be utilized. The team will not be aiding the animal, they are the animal! The teams must rely solely on the innate abilities of the animal they are portraying. At the end of allotted time, teams must present a well-defined escape plan as well as a cogent argument for the escape. To succeed, the escapees will need team communication, good group planning, and efficient time management skills.
It’s a marine mystery “whodunit”! Sharpen your detecting skills and work as a team to track down the culprit. Teams will train at the LIA Academy of Forensics. The new detectives will then put their skills to the test at their own crime scene, gathering clues and collecting evidence to be examined in the “lab”. To help catch the perpetrator teams will need a mix of observational skills, strong teamwork and a healthy dose of imagination.
The Olympics have come to the Aquarium. Do you think your team has what it takes to win a gold medal? Now is your chance to compete like an animal. Your objective is to transport the unhatched baby penguin eggs safely to their incubator. Sounds easy? It would be if you didn’t have to compete in kayak and rock wall competitions. We also can’t leave out the deadly spider web your team must pass through in order to accomplish your goal. Do you still think your team has what it takes? The baby penguins hope you will make this your Aquarium adventure!
Poseidon’s Scavenger Hunt
An indoor/outdoor activity that takes groups throughout the facility in search of clues. The first team to successfully find and follow the hidden secrets of Poseidon’s maze wins.
In addition to these fun extras that can make every corporate event fun and memorable, we also have a number of meeting rooms and give you a number of options for catering your corporate parties or events so that you don’t have to worry about anything except giving your staff.
