Blindfold Square
The team is blind. To restore their sight they must form a perfect square using the whole length of rope provided.

Boardroom Game
The team must attempt to gain control of rooms for trading and gaining full sets of keys. A loud, fast and furious ice breaker.

Bonus Seekers
A large multi team activity. Up to three teams frantically trade on th market in order to earn bonus payments for team members. Time is a massive constraint, pressure surrounds everyone. Negotiation skills are a must.

Broken Bridge
The facility represents a suspension bridge that has partly collapsed, leaving only the main uprights standing. The team's objective is to get everyone safely from one side to the other without touching the ground.

Build A Bike
The team is divided and have 20 minutes to build the components for a bike. Then they must get together and assemble the parts.

Building Blocks
The aim is for the team to reconstruct, exactly as the original, a 'modern sculpture' that has been knocked down to the bottom layer.

Caterpillar
As a fun task, the team forms the wheels in the centre of a caterpillar track. The team needs to co-ordinate their efforts to complete the course and win the race.

Chain Gang
The team is attempting to escape from their captors, who have attached the team members together at the ankle. There is a safe route across an alarmed area. If they step outside this route they must start again

Cliff Hanger
A satellite has crashed scattering data crystals across the face of the cliff - your team must retrieve them.

Cobro
A simulation exercise, where the team is a unit that has to manage an area after a major disaster. From their underground bunker, the only link with the outside world is via telephones to the police and army - crisis management at it's best.

Curse Breaker

With their boat capsizing, the team has reached the relative safety of a dingy but now need to decide which items of equipment they can take with them.

The team is tasked with designing and building a pipeline capable of transporting water across the dessert to a drought stricken area. They are also in competition with another contractor who has already submitted their tender.

Egg Launch
Win the egg race by projecting the egg the furthest distance, without causing any damage to the egg itself - they are fresh, not hard-boiled!

Espionage
The team has an opportunity to enter a competitor's research & development laboratory. To succeed they must use the equipment provided to cross an electrified and alarmed fence without anyone or anything touching the fence, fence posts or ground in between.

Front Page
As a team of journalists, the team must decide which story should appear on the front page. Each team member has a story of their own, which they feel is the most important issue of the day. Which one will appear on the front page?

Gene Pool
The team members are surgeons correcting a problem at the gene pool, caused by the laboratory cleaners. The cleaners have mixed up the genes. If the problem is not corrected within half an hour the genes will become useless.

Get Away
A team of jewel thieves have completed a diamond heist and need to split the booty before making their getaway. No one trusts each other - they must all share the job of splitting the goods and it is tougher than they bargained for!

Giants Finger
Can you get the rings on the giant's finger?

Giants Shoes
The team must tie the giant's shoes - in the dark.

Great Egg Race
In this variation of the TV series, the teams are given all sorts of goodies, and their challenge is to build a 'machine' capable of projecting an egg the greatest possible distance.

Invisible Maze
The team must work out a route through the maze. Unfortunately, although they know where the maze is, they cannot see the structure of it, due to new high tech security features. No one may talk in the maze for fear of discovery.

Island Hop
Another good icebreaker. The team has to cross a lake using some 'mobile' floating islands. However, if anyone looses contact with an island for even a fraction of a second it floats away. The team starts with one less island than members!

Land Skis
A fun competition. Up to four teams can compete simultaneously in this hilarious race. The teams mount their skis and attempt to march in unison.

Nuclear Alert
Members of the team are given a role to play, which details their life history. There has been a nuclear disaster and the only place of shelter is the bunker. Unfortunately there are limited places in the bunker - who gets in?

Nuclear Waste
The team has to transfer nuclear waste from a disintegrating container to a new safe container, within a contaminated area, without entering the contaminated area.

Pathway
As a group of engineers, the team is tasked with building a continuous bridge across the quicksand, spanning from one 'bank' to the other.

Plutonium
An internal separator has failed in a container of plutonium. The material is going critical and must be divided in half before it explodes.

Pressure Cooker
The teams must complete an unknown number of tasks within the time provided - they must constantly reinvent themselves to succeed.

Siege
The Dukes of Holt have fallen out and gone to war! Each team must build a siege engine capable of knocking the opposing team's Dukes head off! At the same time they must build a castle to protect the Duke. In addition they may also act as spies to collect information about the opposing team's activities!

Software
The holes in the web represent defects in a new software product, about to be launched. The quality challenge is to eliminate the maximum number of defects in the time allowed having committed to a customer the number of defects they will correct, before starting remedial work.
