An Indian style construction challenge where teams vie with each other, while building and creatively designing life-size hand-drawn Rickshaws, leading to a grand finale race

The Flat Out Rickshaw Rally is a team building challenge demonstrating the effectiveness of  project management, team work and an all out competitive spirit.  Works great for multi-cultural teams too. The Rickshaw Rally is a challenging activity for any team that would like to improve and build on trust, team bonding, communication, and collaboration. It enables participants to experience all elements of teamwork and management in abundance.  Lots of debrief points that will throw light on multiple learning aspects that teams can derive from this activity.

Each Rickshaw is constructed as its individual components are first drawn, cut, then assembled by the participants and their teams. The final completed Rickshaw must truly stand the test of endurance.  To enable this, teams must collaborate on managing all elements of the project, through its phases, and build the Rickshaw.

As a team building activity, the Rickshaw Rally highlights the impact of inter-team dependence and communication that enables teams  to take ordinary cardboard flat packs and convert them into a hand -drawn Rickshaw. Showcasing their talents, participants experience practical leadership, team empowerment and draw lessons from their experiences for success as a team.

Using  logical analysis, teams need to think quickly while drawing and assembling the components.  They must be able to solve and assemble the final product by visualizing it.  This activity will test  the problem solving and decision making abilities of your teams.

Teams are pitted against each other for the coveted position of making the most beautiful Rickshaw as well as winning the grand finale event – the Rickshaw Rally Race.  This fosters competitive spirit of all teams, making  this activity a rip-roaring experiential learning event.
