Barrels, planks, ropes and water are the recipe for a thorough soaking and great fun in this activity and with the sheltered waters of the River Wye at hand, we have the ideal place to spend a few hours raft building!
You’re guaranteed a great session with this activity and it is an ideal team challenge for large groups of adults or children. With the aim to build a raft and put it to the test to see if it floats, you will be equipped with buoyancy aids, helmets and paddles, and given a short time to design your raft. Once your team have agreed on the design, construction can begin with a selection of materials being plastic barrels, long & short poles and not forgetting the all important rope. Remember, the rafts must be able to carry the whole team through a series of races & return to shore! How long will your raft last? Don’t worry if yours earns the name Titanic, the safety marshals will be close by to rescue you and what remains of your raft.
This activity is ideal for all types of groups from families to corporate, with its team building and communication elements and is great for those who have that competitive edge!
Please Note: This activity requires a minimum of 6 people. Please contact us for further information.
