The Ransom team building activity

A team building activity that involves groups working together to find your kidnapped CEO. An unidentified group have kidnapped your CEO overnight and have left a ransom note. “We have your CEO and you have 3 hours to rescue him/her or pay the ransom. They are locked away at a secret destination and we have left clues around the city that will lead you to them. If you can find them, you must also know the code to unlock them. You must work quickly in your teams to complete this task. If you fail, the ransom of $1,000,000 must be paid."


What happens during The Ransom team building activity

This exciting event will see your teams follow a GPS based Smartphone application, which will lead you to various locations around the city and provide you with clues to the where about of the CEO and also the combination to the lock that will release them. The Ransom is a great experience that will keep them guessing until the final moment.


Activities include:

  • Code Numbers: A head for numbers and logic will definitely help you here as you fit each digit into the correct box in order to determine the magic number.
  • Handcuffs: Teams will need to work together to find a way to free themselves from this sticky situation.
