Coastal Mississippi is THE place for group fun. Whether you’re in search for morale-building team exercises, group activities for celebratory dates, or just restaurants that cater to a large crowd (and maybe some picky eaters), we’ve got you and your squad covered.

Where to Play

  • Zip n Fun
    • In search of a physical challenge? Sign up for this 50 game, tree-to-tree obstacle course, featuring tight ropes, bridges, nets, and zip lines. Increasing with difficulty as you progress through the course, the average completion time is about two and a half hours, so prepare the group ahead of time.

      • Tickets: $34.99 (54” minimum height and 275 lbs maximum)

  • Eco-Tours of South Mississippi
    • For an immersive educational experience introducing you to Coastal Mississippi’s cypress swamps and salt marshes, book a 2, 4, or 8 hour excursion with Eco-Tours. Learn about the abundant native plants and wildlife of the Pascagoula River. Guided kayak tours are also available. For groups in want of getting back to nature, this activity is for you.

      • Prices vary with group number and length of excursion

  • Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art
    • If getting creative is the name of your game, take a group ceramics class at the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art. For two hours, you can play with clay and throw pots on their pottery wheels! You’re able to keep two of your thrown pots, which will be glazed and fired by museum staff and ready for pick up after two weeks. This activity has a max limit of 10 people, so it's best served for smaller groups. Contact the museum ahead of time for booking your reservation.

      • Tickets: $25 per person

  • Ocean Adventures Marine Park
    • For the animal lovers, gather your group for up-close encounters with dolphins, sea lions, sharks, rays, and birds at Ocean Adventures Marine Park. For additional fees, you can even snorkel with rays, swim with dolphins, and get kissed by sea lions. Walk or take a short train ride to the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies which features a museum, touch pools, display aquariums, and an auditorium hosting incredible shows.

      • Tickets are $15 for adults, discounts provided for active military and seniors

    • Does your group embrace a little friendly competition? Scarlet Pearl's Lava Links offers a unique mini golf experience with a life-like erupting volcano. The two 18-hole golf courses are surrounded by lush landscaping with gardens, waterfalls, and bridges to wow you in between rounds. Losing team pays to cool down at the casino resort's Garden Oasis Pool!

      • Tickets are $10, discounts provided for senior, military, and players
