Creative Team Challenges

From enjoying an adrenaline-pumping event by participating in white water rafting at a picturesque location to going barefoot into a paddy field clad in Sri Lankan traditional cloths to plant Paddy: delight, amaze, explore and express with our truly imaginative and creative teambuilding events: here are a few of the many on offer….

PADDY PLANTING IN SIGIRIYA / GIRITALE

A fun filled competition where participants are required to attire accordingly – Male Participants in loincloth and bare body (if you must, a t- shirt is allowed) and the Female Participants in a short “Sarong” and a short blouse. Barefoot, all participants must get into to a “muddy” Paddy Field. Each Participant is given a row and Paddy Plants. When the whistle is blown, the participants must start planting the Paddy along each row. This will not be easy as the mud will make it difficult to move about and some might even fall in… The first one to finish planting will be the winner.

Coordinated Game - Bridge on the River Kwai in Kitulgala

This is 1957. You are part of a construction team who is assigned to build a bridge over the famous Kelani river to shoot “bride of the river Quai”. [ Film which finally won 7 academy awards ] You are on one side of the river and the other team is on the other river bank.

There were no cell phones or whatever modern communications you have today.

How would you build a perfect single bridge as two teams to send a train across ”

Coordinated Game - BB flute

Usually a flute has less than 10 holes to blow air in order to create a piece of music.

But our giant “BB flute” has plenty of holes and instead of air we use water. Your task is to play the holes right and produce the right result at the correct time.
