the low see-saw
the entire group must balance on the giant see-saw – the team will switch sides or move around in a circle and dismount, all the way through trying to keep the see-saw perfectly balanced!
the group work together to cross an area using boards which are 8′-10′ in length – the boards are placed on protruding stumps in the ground – the team need to get across the acid river without falling in, but there’s only one route to success!
the group start off balanced on a 20ft horizontal log – the challenge begins when the whole group try to switch ends with each other whilst keeping everyone perfectly balanced on the log!
each participant needs to go through one of the gaps in the giant spiders web – each hole is unique and can only be used once by one team member – the groups needs to think things through very carefully before taking any action!
the group starts on a raised platform and must transfer the whole team to a life raft using a rope swing – the exercise is repeated with ever decreasing sized platforms!
can you trust your partner? as the pair work outwards across the V the gap between them increases… balancing perfectly against one another to stay up, how far can the pair make it before they loose it!
