Soap Box Derby - Outdoor EventsBUILD YOUR CUSTOM EVENT
Robot Wars meets Wacky Races in Soapbox Derby! Using only basic materials and tools, teams build their own roadsters from scratch and go bumper to bonnet in a series of races.
Which team will create the winning soapbox and claim the top spot on the winners' podium?
Soapbox Derby is a fun, competitive team building event designed to get teams working together to achieve a common goal. Multiple team member talents are required, including design flair, innovation, creativity, and 'driving' skills... although we use the term loosely!
Team Building Benefits:
- Improves communication
- Develops problem solving abilities
- Teaches the art of resourcefulness
- Hones leadership and delegation skills
- Encourages creative thinking
- Illustrates the importance of individual team member roles
Following an initial briefing, guests will be split into teams and supplied with soapbox construction kits. Vehicles must be made using only the materials and tools inside the kits, although elbow grease is allowed.
Each vehicle must pass an MOT to compete in the races.
After the MOTs it's time for the main event - the Soapbox Derby team trials! Your team will compete in four carefully designed challenges:
- SPEED SLALOM
- TRAFFIC LIGHT BURN-OFF
- HILL CLIMB
- GRAND PRIX FINALE
Each race requires a different skillset - do you have them all?

For this activity we would suggest a running time of 2 hours
