Sometimes the simplest notions are the most powerful.
This terrific icebreaker translates cooperative thinking into a spirited breakout session of competition and creative craftsmanship. Teams work together to assemble an intricate railway system to compete against each other in a test of time management, ingenuity and communication.
Using materials like zip ties and paper rods, teams work together to construct the railway, section by section.
After a quick practice run, teams race their trains to the finish by cooperating and synchronising their movements. This creates an environment where each member works in unison while trying to stay ahead of the competition. It’s a game that enhances an array of important skills and introduces quick thinking at both the individual and group level.
Your next conference should be filled with a fun and vitalising exercise that has as much value as it does enjoyment. Mexican Railway is a sure fire way to get everyone together for a fun day at the tracks!
