This creative construction game demonstrates the importance of cooperation, trust and managing resources, meeting requirements in a competitive environment.


A fun training game that demonstrates that open communication, effective listening skills, planning and trust are the key to teams working well with one other.

Teams have limited time to plan and construct a Roller Coaster which will allow a Ping-Pong ball to be dropped in at one end and travel to the other end by gravity alone!


This game can be run many different ways. Here are some examples:

30-Minute Team Challenge

One or more teams compete against the clock (and/or one another) to construct and test the Roller Coaster in 30 minutes.

This may sound easy, but the instructions require teams to construct the roller coaster complying with specifications that need creativity and planning. The time limit also adds pressure more tension!

There is also the option of requiring teams to 'hire' the material to complete the task. Can they achieve it by spending less than other teams?

30-Minute Time Trial

Two or more teams each build a Roller Coaster, but they need careful planning and cooperation because each construction is timed to meet a tight schedule. All will be revealed in the Trainer's Notes and Team Sheets.

50-Minute Team Cooperation

Three teams work in different areas or in their own syndicate rooms, where they construct a different part of the Roller Coaster. After 45 minutes, bring the three teams together to assemble the three part Roller Coaster. Do they fit together and do the job as instructed?


Roller Coaster Ball is a highly energetic and practical activity that energises any course or training event. When the teams meet at the end there is high tension – and then euphoria when the ball completes its course! Demonstrates that open communication and trust is the key to project teams working well with one another.
