Soap Box Derby Team Building

Design and race your own go kart in our Soap Box Derby outdoor team building event! Have you got what it takes to lift the Grand Prix trophy?

To be successful, teams need to communicate, plan projects and manage time effectively. This makes Soap Box Derby team building suitable for everything from senior management team building through to client hospitality functions – and everything in between. 

Exciting, practical and highly interactive, this team building event has something for everyone. 

How Does Soap Box Derby Team Building Work?

We’ll begin by welcoming you to your Soap Box Derby team building experience. Then, we’ll explain how the day will unfold and get everyone into teams ready for a series of 30 minute team challenges

Will you be performing a Mexican wave in our Around the World quiz? Bagging footballs blindfolded in our Space Balls game? Or linking words in our Pyramid word puzzle? 

These games offer chances to earn fun money to “spend” on equipment for your racer. And the more money you have, the easier it will be! Games also encourage team bonding, communication and problem solving, before the big event.

However large your group, everyone will get to play every game with their team. We bring multiple sets of equipment and the perfect number of facilitators to ensure everything runs like clockwork.

Once the challenges are complete, you’ll start assembling your racers! 

You’ll receive briefing documents, equipment and tools to get started. But can you assemble your go kart chassis, wheels, seat and steering wheel in time for the big race? This is what makes our Soap Box Derby such a good time management and project planning exercise.

Ecctis Soap Box Derby Corporate Team Building Event (August 2021)

A race car driver gives it everything in the Soap Box Derby grand finale!

Then, it’s time to get creative – you’ll buy racing suits, flags and craft materials from our shop with your fun money to decorate your ride. Think pipe cleaners, balloons, foil and ribbons… Next, choose a race car driver, theme and team name for proud display as they pull up to our starting line!

Finally, it’s racing time. All teams will come together for the grande finale. Each team’s driver will pilot their cart around our obstacle course as fast as their legs will carry them as the crowd goes wild!

The team with the most points at the end of the day receive well-deserved golden medals in our closing ceremony.

Soap Box Derby Team Building Outcomes

Soap box derby team building is interactive, creative and practical. To do well, teams have to manage their time effectively, plan ahead and communicate about what they’re trying to achieve. As such, it can be used to improve all of these skills – and more!

A very entertaining experience... we had to make decisions and work together. And we also got a sense of achievement - I can’t draw and produced 2 decent superheroes. An excellent activity.

Many thanks to Neil and Ruth for leading our virtual team building exercise... Many laughs were had while scrambling to collect the twenty items...!!! The Murder Mystery was my favourite and my team winning was the icing on the cake. The Haka showed how uncoordinated we are but the laughs ...just proves what an enjoyable experience we all had.
