Mexican Railway Overview
Mexican Railway is a simple but effective up on your feet team building activity that focuses on collaboration and communication; this activity requires the group to come together and construct a railway like contraption that can carry a ball around the circumference of the team circle using only a mexican-wave type motion and the newspaper rods and ties provided. The activity gives a great sense of achievement as there’s a lot of strategy involved, and opportunities for the Leaders within the group to take charge and guide the team to success.
How does it work?
Each group will be provided very simple equipment, this will consist of rolled newspaper rods and cable ties. This is the only equipment that the teams have and our instructors are there to help and guide. After a number of quick practice runs, teams race their trains to the finish by cooperating and synchronising their movements. The last part of the activity can either be run as a competitive race or the whole group can come together to complete a whole circuit of the group. This is a great team activity and a great way to keep everyone on the right track and having fun.
