Why Few Things Promote Company Direction As Much As Driving A Kart Blindfolded

by | Oct 12, 2021 | Uncategorized

Of all the legendary team-building activities at Accelerate Indoor Speedway & Events, few are as memorable as the blindfolded karting challenge.

On the surface, it may sound a little crazy. Don’t worry, though. It’s all done at a super-slow speed as a blindfolded driver tries to navigate his or her way around a serpentine track following cues from teammates. Teams compete against each other to see which one can record the fastest time.

“Communication skills, stress management, and performance under pressure are just some of the elements of teamwork that this group favorite challenges and improves,” says Tammy Gatewood, Director of sales, Accelerate Indoor Speedway & Events.

Nothing brings a team together faster than a little internal competition.

Another popular team-building activity involving go-karts is the Soccer Ball Challenge, where two team members have to direct a soccer ball through the course with a go-kart.

Of course, Accelerate Indoor Speedway & Events offers much more than karting. Axe Throwing challenges pit teams against each other for the highest scores, most bullseyes in a row, or any other games that require individual and team effort.

And in select locations, Office Olympics, where people compete in a variety of arcade games, and VR challenges make sure everyone leaves motivated and inspired.

It was awesome that your team made a “trophy” for the fastest time. It was talked about all night.
