If you’re planning a daytime away day, original ideas include getting out on the water or recreating TV game shows on the banks of the River Thames.
Just a few miles from The Runnymede on Thames is Liquid Leisure, Europe’s largest aqua park on a freshwater lake. Surrounded by woodland and greenery, there are plenty of water activities and challenges to embark on for all abilities. Traverse a floating obstacle course, embark on a paddle-boarding lesson and then take the team out on a banana boat ride to finish the day on a high.
For those who want to get out on the water but stay relatively dry, dragon boat racing is a brilliant way to get teams working together. Available directly from The Runnymede on Thames, no previous boating experience is required. Teams start out by learning the ropes on the dragon boats, getting to grips with the practicalities and working together to row and steer in unison. The grand finale is a river race between teams, putting newfound skills to the ultimate test!
For teams who prefer to stay on solid ground, recreating the television show of It’s a Knockout on the lawns of The Runnymede on Thames is just the thing. This involves working in groups to traverse a series of physical and mental challenges, from infiltrating an inflatable castle to making a plan to get all team members over a slippery slope.
Whichever you choose, days such as these are full of laughs, teamwork and high spirits.
