This wacky blindfold driving event is great fun but extremely challenging – if not a little different.
What is Blindfold Driving?
A high energy, wacky experience that requires concentration and collaboration. You guessed correctly; the driver is blindfolded and they tackle an obstacle course in our 4×4 vehicles.
After the initial brief and tour of the course by your instructor, the scene is set. Each driver is blindfolded and the remaining team members are sitting in the back of the vehicle ready to use verbal commands to navigate the driver around the obstacle course.
Drivers start off with 10 points. If your vehicle touches an obstacle you lose a point, if you knock over an obstacle you will lose five points and so on. Ultimately you can end up with a very large minus score very quickly if not careful. So the team to have the highest score at the end of the day will be the winning team.
Usually, the first driver is the guinea pig, this person will make the most mistakes and the navigators will really learn how to communicate more effectively after the 1st driver. This is not a physical challenge and is available for people of all levels of fitness.
How can Blindfold Driving help your team?
Communication is key in any business, team members will learn quickly to communicate together otherwise there are serious consequences and points will be deducted accordingly.
This is a completely collaborative team building activity. Teams learn as they go, it’s a progressive challenge. Each time they drive the course they will notice better ways to improve their score and ultimately will figure out how to achieve success while working together.
