Split into teams you'll be given only the bare essentials: barrels, poles and rope, with which, in a limited amount of time you have to build your raft! 

This activity takes place in Herefordshire, requires creativity, initiative and teamwork. Then comes the big crunch... is it going to float? Is it going to stay in one piece? Is it going to get you safely down the river?! Are we watching a re-run of Papillon here, or will it get named the Titanic II or the Mary Rose? Also, what about any pirates that may be keen to steal anything of value….you need to watch out for the other teams as they try to sneak off with any ropes that you leave lying around!

Raft building is a great team building event but is also very popular with stag and hen parties and is guaranteed to separate the floaters from the lead balloons! Which of your friends and colleagues would you rather be marooned with?! 

For your safety buoyancy aids must be worn whilst you are on your craft and qualified instructors will be with you throughout (travelling in canoes) -you don’t think they are daft enough to get on a raft that you have just built do you?!

Day will contain:

  • Barrels, poles & ropes supplied
  • Bouyancy aid and paddle provided
  • Competitive teams
  • Time limits to beat
  • Test your ingenuity
  • Race friends and colleagues
  • Laughter guaranteed!

Please bring:

  • Suitable footwear (trainers, boots)
  • Towel for afterwards just in case you end up in the river!

“The Best Stag Weekend I Could Have Hoped For”

Visited Mountain Mayhem in October for my Stag Doo and was hoping for something a little different from just solid drinking for 2days. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel very welcome by Vicky and her husband, nothing was too much trouble for them. We were booked in to do off road karting, indoor shooting and raft building. All of the activities over the 2 days were well explained and cracking fun. The food was proper home cooked and was so good, we had second helpings. Even before we left we all agreed that we would be back.... Just need to find an excuse now. Cheers for a great weekend away!


“Great for a stag do.”

We had a fantastic time at Mountain Mayhem for Anthony's stag do. The staff were fantastic and everything was very organised. We did paintball, karting and clay pigeon shooting. We felt really welcome - the staff made the effort to learn the names of the party members. They organised meat purchase so we could have a barbeque and sorted out a minibus for our drinking session in Hereford. The facilities were very good. The bunkroom was comfortable. A lot of the facilities were newly done to a very high standard. Wifi access is available in the main building so you can email to say you are having a good time, but there is little mobile coverage - which means you can get away from everything.
