Construction Team Building Activity – Ballista!

We have a superb construction team building activity called “Ballista” where participants learn the art of medieval warfare and construct a replica “Ballista” – a catapult used in ancient warfare for hurling large stones!

I was asked to put together some video and photos of recent events for a client and thought I’d share the results here.

Build a replica Ballista and battle it out with your teams!

The challenge is to build a medieval ballista then battle it out to defeat all-comers! It can last from 1 to 3 hours and is for 6 to 160 people.

Fear not we have replaced the large stones with soft balls and each team tries to destroy the others’ defences and not the teams themselves!

The 3 phases of the event provide constant engagement, teamwork and challenge: planning and purchasing; constructing and testing and finally the Endgame! Teams take it in turn to fire upon their opponents’ fortified position. If your defences are breached the battle is lost.

Ballista! will appeal to a practically-minded audience who enjoy the challenge and teamwork involved in building and improving their prototype. It runs indoors or outdoors so is suitable as a construction team building activity all year round for large or small groups. For conferences, this activity runs in a condensed format in as little as 60 minutes.
