Everything you need to know about the Great Train Heist team building activity

This unique team building simulation is an immersive crime solving experience. It is designed to develop practical leadership, communication and problem solving skills through game-based learning.

This intricate simulation will take your team into the heart of Queensland’s real life unsolved mystery – the great Cloncurry Train Heist of 1938. Working in teams of 8-12 with evidence taken from the scene, participants will be competing against the clock (and each other) to crack the case.

What happens during the Great Train Heist team building activity?

This is a simulation that will challenge and delight, requiring both team work and a broad range of individual skills to succeed.

It’s fun, clever and just the right amount of frustrating with a surprising ability to draw participants into their new roles as front-line detectives.

With an array of hands on puzzles that require simultaneous solving, teams will need to communicate highly effectively to succeed.

Most importantly it provides a rich experience around which to challenge group dynamics, work on communication, leadership abilities and build creative problem solving skills.
