Experience the true meaning of pressure! The Battle of the Bridges has been called “Wile E. Coyote meets Frank Lloyd Wright”. Get the picture? No? Okay I’ll lay it out for you. The Battle of the Bridges is one of the dastardliest challenges ever designed by the minds of the Broadmoor Leadership Center. We’ve applied a huge dose of testosterone and a tsunami of Jolt Cola to design this building challenge to end all building challenges. Teams are provided with the materials and tools to build a bridge spanning a 2-foot wide river. What materials, what tools you say? Each team is equipped with a Black & Decker workmate, power drill, saws, screwdrivers, wire rope, worktables, lumber, screws, and other construction items. Once the design and construction is complete, the bridges, along with a can of soda (cleverly disguised as an atomic fuel cell), are placed in the Atomic Pulverizer; a pneumatic ram, powered wedge robot capable of applying enough force to crush a small tank. The angst of the group, watching the Pulverizer slowly extend its evil looking ram towards its next bridge victim is palpable. The fiendish machine measures the amount of force the bridge supports before the can of soda under the bridge finally explodes all over the blast shields. Teams must make a myriad of decisions regarding the design of their bridge, location of their support towers and a host of other issues during construction. Scoring is not only based on the pressure the bridge supports but also the width of the span, efficient use of materials and quality of construction. This is an exercise in collaboration, inventory control, speed, creativity, building skills and many other key challenges found in business situations every single day. The Atomic Pulverizer will teach your team the meaning of PRESSURE!

Sparking energy through team synergy! Everyone knows the company with the greatest fire or passion is often the most successful. What is preventing your teams’ success? A common road block to success is inter-departmental competition. In today’s competitive business market, teams often forget the synergy that comes from collaboration and tend to automatically compete with their key associates. Fun, exhilarating and mentally demanding, FireQuest is designed to spotlight the importance of collaboration and demonstrate the natural tendency of most teams to unnecessarily compete. After an introduction to the program concepts, teams are introduced to many new challenges, all designed to promote inter-team collaboration. As teams learn the skills necessary to use a GPS unit, and then locate specific locations around the resort property, they experience the importance of utilizing the natural skills of each team member. During FireQuest, team members must seek out a variety of checkpoints that are assigned different values determined by ease of access, distance and difficulty, while racing against the clock. Planning and communication are vital for success. While completing the GPS course, each team collects the tools necessary to build a small fire using flint and steel. In order to successfully start the fire, a team must utilize every piece retrieved. Much like the workplace team, if one element is under used or missing, success can be near impossible to achieve. After an extensive debrief, teams will understand the natural tendency to compete automatically, even when competition is unnecessary. As a reminder of the lessons learned, each team member takes home a custom designed fire kit to help reinforce the lessons learned.
