River Runner takes the thrill of white water rafting and brings all the aspects of running a river adventure company into a fun and challenging indoor business game.
Each team works as a rafting company on a commercial expedition down one of the world’s greatest and most challenging rivers. Although the participants have no chance of getting wet they will be supplied with full-sized rafts, paddles, life-vests and all manner of vital expedition equipment.
Success comes from achieving a balance between being the first to run the river, satisfying demanding clients, maintaining a good safety record and showing a profit.
Time is of the essence. However, spending time on research and gathering vital information is necessary to increase the teams’ chances of being the first to run the river.
River Runner requires efficient team management to gather vital information quickly and a flexible approach to take advantage of unexpected events and information that are encountered along their journey.
River Runner provides excitement and entertainment while demonstrating that effective planning and strategy implementation are as essential to success as energy and teamwork. This event provides endless opportunities for the review of issues such as problem solving, profitability, customer satisfaction, risk management and leadership skills.
