The Challenges

Rope Runner Challenges are designed to increase participant's skills in problem-solving in a safe and fun atmosphere.

Treasure Hunt

  • The group is split into 2 teams and given 6 clues which will lead the around the park collecting numbers to open the treasure chest. This challenge is not a race, however, teams do like the challenge of finishing the treasure hunt first.
  • In this fun team building challenge the students will work together to solve the clues and encourage each other across the elements to reach the treasure.

Walk the Plank

  • This challenge is a partner challenge involving walking across a wooden element in the park blindfolded. Another team member will guide the blindfolded student onto the obstacle all the way until they are safe on the platform at the opposite end.
  • This a trust challenge and also requires clear communication.
  • Teams will be split into pairs to complete this challenge.

Save the Planet

  • This challenge is for the entire group to work out how to transfer a large barrel of toxic waste from one side of the park, through the the 2 “neutralization” zones, and to the other side. They will travel across a no spill route, using only the equipment provided and within an allotted time frame.
  • This is an engaging group initiative activity which always provides a rich teamwork challenge. It involves thinking, imagination, action, fantasy, risk and an problem solving.
