Those afraid of a challenge, worried about getting their hair wet and not interested in fun look away now. Divided up into teams you will be given an allowance (plastic money) to bid on lots you need to construct your raft, so as a team you must think carefully about what you need. The race begins and so does the chaos as you battle your way across the lake and back avoiding sabotage and mischief, the first one back and raft unpacked is crowned Legends of the Lake.
Dam busting is an ex-stream session where you will definitely need your wellies as you wade the length of the flowing river. You will need handy craft skills and teamwork traits to build a raft using materials found in the wood, and finally you must be quick thinking and acting in order to build dam's to cleverly navigate your raft downstream to the safe zone. In this rapid flowing adrenaline infused session you and your team will be challenged, whilst developing great skills in the heart of the forest.
