AMAZING RACE OTTAWA's GPS GeoRally will get you discovering Ottawa like never before!
An excellent team building option, Amazing Race Ottawa’s GPS GeoRally is a technology- and navigation-based adventure game using elements of Geocaching, a global GPS treasure hunt.
Teams will be provided with a handheld GPS receiver and approximately 20 challenges to accomplish in a fixed time period.
Using the GPS and challenge sheet, teams navigate around the playing area in the downtown core making strategic choices to score as many points as possible in the allotted time. Points are scored by answering questions about specific locations around the city, referenced by geographic coordinates and GPS waypoints, as well as by finding physical items hidden in the playing area.
Challenges are assigned point-values based on their level of difficulty, distance, complexity of the challenge, use of specific GPS features, and more.
Successful teams will work together and draw on each team member’s strengths and strategically plan their team’s route based on their priorities.
Being efficient in their movements and time management and in their use of the technology, participants will get to know their teammates and colleagues in a setting that gets everyone outside and exploring, enjoying an exciting, informative and fun adventure.
Our GPS GeoRally will develop your team’s skills in:
- Strategic planning / definition of priorities
- Attention to detail
- Teamwork / Relying on others’ strengths
- And much more.
