About Flatwater Team Building
RIVERSPORT Rapids Adventure Park is geared for rafters of all levels – no prior experience is needed! The state-of-the-art aquatic facility is one of only a few in the world, and offers a wide range of activity choices. Our Flatwater Team Building is located on the lower pond of the RIVERSPORT Rapids Adventure Park, where your group will be split into rafts to work together on trust, communication and above all team work!
We have three fun, challenging rafting activities that make up our Flatwater Team Building: Blind-Folded Pirates, Rafting Relay, and a Rafting Tug-o-War. Each activity will have a debriefing session with our facilitator to talk about the experience with your team. In Blind-Folded Pirates, there will be multiple locations throughout the lower pond that each team must navigate to and collect specific items. The designated Pirate Captain will be the eyes of each boat as the rowers are blindfolded – working to collect all the Pirate Booty and return to earn the title of King of the Blind Pirates! Then in a race to end all races, our Rafting Relay is will test your team work and speed as teams will have to gear up, collect a flag, and sprint paddle the rafting course. To end your team building experience on the water – a Rafting Tug-o-War, where rafts will be tethered together as the two teams fight to paddle away from the other.
The experience can vary depending on the size of the group, but is typically a 2-hour experience.
The schedule would be as follows:
- Welcome and Introduction
- Blind-Folded Pirates
- Rafting Relay
- Rafting Tug-o-War
About the RIVERSPORT Rapids Whitewater Rafting Center
Built as a project of MAPS 3, a one-cent tax inititave, the $45.2 million whitewater rafting and kayaking center was completed in 2016. The facility was designed to accommodate all ages and experience levels, and the Class II-IV rapids allow for slalom kayaking, family fun on a raft and even tubing! The park includes two channels that provide different challenges for participants, a stage for concerts and community events, an outfitter’s shop and a restaurant. RIVERSPORT Rapids is a world-class destination, and is fun for the entire family.
