EXP Journeys Westworld Games Team-Building Event
Saratoga, Wyoming, United States
At a secluded, five-star resort outside of Saratoga, Wyoming, the crew at EXP Journeys meticulously transformed the 33,000 acre Brush Creek Ranch into the theme park from the hit show Westworld. The Magee Homestead portion of the ranch was bought out by the client and challenges were set up over the entirety of the resort that ranged from archery, shooting, and tomahawk throwing to panning for gold, lassoing cattle, fishing, and negotiating with Native Americans.
The focus of this project was to create a story about the event with the clients as the stars of their own Westworld episode. There were a number of challenges involved with producing the event. First, the property was gigantic and there was no way to know where participants were at any given moment. Additionally, with everyone including our crew moving around the property by ATV, there was an excessive amount of dust, though thankfully we had our pelican cases with us.
We had a great time participating (we wore costumes to fulfill our role as newspaper reporters) and are hoping they renew the Westworld games for season 2.
