Key Facts

The Blimp My Ride team building event will see your delegates divided into teams of approximately 7 people per team.

We require a large, cleared indoor space for this activity plus one table per team.

The resources available to build the blimp includes cardboard, tape, string, weights, propellers, balloons, fans, paper clips, pens, paper and much more. It is up to the team to attach their resources aiming to transport their blimp from one side of the conference room to the other.

One Activity, Two Options

There are two options for how the Blimp My Ride activity can be facilitated:

Option One: 60 – 90 minutes
Teams are given equal equipment to build their Blimps, and the final flying challenge will test the overall success of the task.

Option Two: 2 – 3 hours
Teams must earn the resources to build their Blimp by successfully completing a series of team based tasks. The teams that successfully complete more tasks earn more resources to assist with their Blimp construction.

Example Team-Based Tasks for Option 2

Eddy the Egg

Teams construct a space capsule device out of straws and tape to catch a raw egg dropped from 2 metres.

Foil Towers

Teams race against the clock to build the tallest tower using only foil.

Frequently Asked Questions

This event requires a large indoor area. The size of the room required depends on the size of the group – feel free to contact us and we can advise what room size is required for your team. Ideally the room is set with 1 trestle table per team to be used during the construction stage. Additionally, the room will need a cleared floor space to fly the Blimps.

This event requires prior access to the room to inflate all the balloons and set each team’s table with construction materials to build the Blimp.
