Roller coaster

Activity insights:

Nurturing team collaboration, Roller Coaster is an exciting activity where members have to build an entire roller coaster from scratch with the materials provided to them. It should be designed in such a way that the ball is able to run along the track solely with the help of gravity.

How it is done:

The Trebound facilitator will make teams and allocate a working space to each of them. They will be provided with supplies such as rubber bands, PVC, balloons, bamboo stakes, etc. and briefed on the design requirements for building the roller coaster. Participants also have the option of hiring the raw materials.

The added challenge is there is a time frame within which the ball can pass through each area. Also, the members have to race against the clock to complete the task and put their roller-coaster to test in an assigned space that is beyond their working area.

Activity Target:

This activity is aimed to motivate and energise employees. Members learn about project management and the importance of collaborating effectively as a team. This understanding gets applied to the work scenario as well.

Key Takeaways:

Creativity

The activity fosters creativity where participants have to stretch their imagination and come up with innovative ideas to build a practical roller coaster from the raw materials given to them.

Time Management

In this activity, members have to strictly abide by the time frame that is allocated to them to create the roller coaster and put it to test. Participants learn to put forth their best under high-pressure deadlines and realise the value of every passing minute. This understanding is reflected in the workplace as well.

Resource Management

Members have to make the most out of the resources provided to them. Even if they need to bring in materials from outside to complete their task, they have to think about the budget. This activity is thus highly effective in making the participants understand the nuances of resource management.

Project planning

This activity illuminates the importance of project planning where members have to have foresight, come up with a sound step by step strategy and execute it. Employers come to realise the crucial role project planning plays accomplishing the goal at hand.

Communication

Without proper communication, the whole purpose of the goal gets lost along the way leading to failure of the project. In this activity, members realise how crucial it is to communicate coherently at every level. This learning gets translated in the workplace as well.

Effective Teamwork

One of the objectives of this activity is to improve effective teamwork in your organisation. Here members are thrown into a situation where they have to collaborate together in order to get the desired results. They realise how the contribution of each member is vital for the outcome.
