BREAKING THE LAW

Bus Hold Up

Arriving at Fort McDowell Adventures by bus? How about a welcome that truly takes your guest by surprise? Simply give us names of up to (2) individuals that you would like to have taken into custody and our law enforcement characters will take it from there. Buses are halted by a flurry of gunfire and boarded by a Sheriff or Deputy who will first welcome the passengers, then ask the group to identify the individual being arrested.
Suspects are removed at gunpoint and hauled off the bus to your party’s
location where they are brought up on charges.

RAND FINALE OF THE EVE
“MANY HANDS MAKE LIGHT WORK.”

BIG Red Wagon

In this team building activity teams will work together to build a Red Wagon as well as assemble a care package for the charity of your choice! Teams will answer trivia questions to receive wagon parts and participate in a physical challenge for charitable items. Teams will answer the questions and take their answers to the numbered stations to gain wagon parts. Once teams have received all the wagon parts they can start the building process. Teams will need to install nuts and bolts, check tire pressure, and install wooden side bars and the handle! While team members are building their wagons other members will need to design and create a canvas cover for the wagon. Each canvas will need to have a message on the canvas about the Team and/or the Charity. These beautiful wagons and care packages come into creation only with team collaboration and hard work! Teams create an amazing heartfelt moment as they donate their custom wagon full of supplies to families or children who have been less fortunate. The smiles
are a mile wide as the families and children visit with each team and are presented with their wagon and care package!

(8 – 10 people per team) (3 team minimum) (Includes care package items)

Rocking ‘Wild Horse’

This is a team-building event with a real purpose. In the time allocated, your team will assemble and paint (2) rocking horses which will be donated to a children’s association of your choice. Each team will have the opportunity to paint any design on to their horse. It could be a zebra, a quarter horse or just a crazy design that best describes their team. Teams will also need to create (2) cards with the supplies they have been given for each rocking horse. A team picture will be taken with the team and the rocking horse. The picture along with the finished rocking horse will be presented to the child.
Once teams have completed their rocking horse and card, they will participate in an exciting team challenge called Corral Building. Each team will be given instructions to build a corral. The team must work together to build a corral that is completely enclosed with the entire team as well as the rocking horse inside the corral. This is a race against the other teams. One thing is certain; everyone will feel good about themselves after this event and have a great time doing it.


Two-Wheeled Horse

This is a team building event with a real purpose. All of the team’s hard work will not go to waste because all of the bicycles, helmets, and cards will be donated to the children’s association of your choice! Your group will be put into teams and will be using their building skills, artistic talent, and their team dedication to build one boy bike and one girl bike as well as make two cards. Teams will also participate in oversized tricycle races to receive bicycle helmets for each bike! All teams will be given the same supplies on their tables (wrenches, screwdrivers, pliers, scissor and markers). Once the bicycles have been built, one representative must take the bike
to the air station and fill the tires. After that is completed the team must then get the bicycles inspected by the safety inspector to ensure that they are safe for the children to ride. When your group has completed all of the required tasks…it’s off to the races!
At the event’s conclusion, the charity of choice may want to come to the event and accept the bikes on their behalf. This is a good opportunity for your group to see the reaction of the children, or the organization in which your group has made a great contribution to. If you need any assistance in finding a charity please feel free to ask.

*All donated bikes will be serviced and checked by professional bike repairmen.

WILD WEST WRANGLING

TEAM BUILDING TARIFF
“YOU CAN LEAD A HORSE TO WATER, BUT CAN’T MAKE HIM DRINK”
- Proverb
Moooving Along

This is a real western team building event – riding horses and herding cattle! We offer a great Cattle Drive through a small portion of the Sonoran Desert on the Yavapai Indian Community Land. On this Cattle Drive you would mount up on your horses and move a herd of cattle across the land. The ranch hands and wranglers will teach you how to keep the herd together and moving, and instruct you on the unique language of the open range. This cattle drive is a perfect way for any city slicker to come out and be a real cowboy for a day. Once your mission is accomplished, you’ll take a leisurely ride back to the ranch house where you can dust off your boots and relax. Our cattle drives are sure to be an event like no other and one you won’t soon forget.
