THE ROLLER-COASTER CHALLENGE IS ONE OF THE MOST STIMULATING IDEAS EVER. IT REQUIRES TEAMS TO BUILD A STRUCTURE, USING ONLY THE FORCE OF GRAVITY, TO DISPLACE A BALL.
Teams are tasked with building a roller coaster out of wooden canes, pipes and zip ties in order to displace a ball from point A to point B. A minimum length and design brief need to be followed, along which each team builds a section of the track. Later these sections are put together to form a gigantic roller coaster which will act as a circuit to test using the rollers. The ball must use only gravity with no human intervention. Bonus points are awarded for loops, drops and spirals.

SATISFACTION
This is relevant especially for teams that work on critical projects and/or work in diverse locations. The time-based activity also impacts impeccable quality and delivery. Leadership teams benefit from seeing an entire project come to life from a pile of raw materials to a working structure within the lines of resource management, collaboration and team effort.
How Roller Coaster adds value to team?
Communication
Teams need to talk to each other, figure out the start and end points of each sector and also share design ideas and best practices. They need to set expectations with the other teams and give and take feedback throughout to make this game work.
Change Management
Due to the ever-changing design of the structure, teams must adapt quickly to changes made by them or the other teams. The fragile structure may even break apart or collapse and teams must learn to fail fast and build faster.
Creativity
Each team builds the rollercoaster in their own way. Some make loops, some have 90 deg drops and others have curves or right angles. This uniqueness of each team is ideally viewed as a creative strength instead of a disruption when merging the sectors together.
Strategy
Using resources wisely, setting a goal/target in advance and having a team strategy where you get the most work done effectively is a key element in the game. Teams learn to divide resources and treat each member as an asset and place them appropriately based on skill sets.
Trust
Teams need to show empathy and pay attention to everyone in the team to ensure they stay united until the end. As one sees the sectors come alive and the ball starts rolling, a strong sense of trust builds among the team and boosts their motivation levels.
