Team Building activity : The Flying Carpet


The team are flying over the desert on their flying carpet and suddenly they spot a stand storm heading towards them in the opposite direction.  The team will have to turn the carpet around to escape crashing and a slow and agonising death but there are some problems. There is no steering wheel on the carpet and they have to perform the manoeuvre in mid-air as they cannot land!



15 Minutes


Tools/Items required Carpet , the team



The team has to remain on the carpet at all times – no-one may step off, jump up and down or be held off the ground for the entire exercise.
