6 Crazy Challenges

8 Minimum Guests
Set in one of our wooded glades we have a range of themed challenges to keep all ages, fitness levels and group sizes entertained for 3 hours.
Nottingham Goofy Games emphasis is definitely on the fun side, and there's a very good chance of you getting wet, so a change of clothing and footwear may be advisable.
In teams of 6 or more you will take on the challenges below in a bid to become Lords or Ladies of Sherwood Forest.
Games include: FRIAR TUCK'S WHEEL - As a team you must navigate around the course pushing this huge wheel that has come off Friar Tuck's kart. It sounds easy, but along the way you have to pick up and carry items that have fallen off Tuck's kart some of the items are food some are wine all of them larger than life. JOUST MAD - Every Knight was dependent on his trusty steed and this challenge is no different. Using our purpose built inflatable Steeds your team of knights will race head to head around the Jousting Square. TRENT DUEL - If you know your Robin Hood history you will remember the first time Robin Hood meets Little John, but if you don't no matter as this challenge is all about re-enacting this historical 1st meeting. With your head gear and upper body protection in place you will get an opportunity to take on all comers on our purpose built River Trent crossing. The objective is simple using this huge padded staff you have to knock your opponent into the river (padded crash mats) each contest will be the best of 3 with bragging rights going to the outright winner. STORM THE RAMPARTS - In medieval times they all hated the tax man and today it's no different, well this challenge is your chance to get your own back. At one end of a wooded glade stands Nottingham castle (well a replica anyway) and atop the battlements stands some of the Sheriff's men. All you have to do is knock the Sheriff's men over in the quickest time using our SOLO giant water balloon. WITCHES TEST - In the time of lord and ladies there were also witches and wizards, the traditional way of establishing whether you had a witch in your mist was by strapping them to a chair, submerging (Dunking) them under water and if they survived under water they were a witch if they died they were not !!! You have got to love the logic of our forefathers.
Due to health and safety we can't re-enact this ancient form of justice, but trust us when we tell you there is every likelihood that if you draw the short straw you will end up just as wet. BEGGARS BELIEF - After avoiding the witches challenge and having paid all your hard earned money in taxes to the Sheriffs you have nothing left to feed yourself, so for this challenge you take on the role of a beggar. You will be issued with your beggars sack and a beggars bowl. The challenge is that it's a 5 man sack with a team mate in each corner and the beggar in the middle you must hop in unison around the course collecting broth contributions from your 6th team mate. Once the beggar's bowel is full you have to get the contents back to the main broth pot before setting off to collect more. The team that collects the most broth, in the broth pot in the allotted time, will be hailed the best beggars in town.
The event can be run for teams of 6 or more so groups of 12 + will form multiple teams with the event capable of accommodating 7 teams at any 1 session.
We ask guests to remember is to pack a camera, sense of humour and a smile and let us take care of the rest.

“Goofy games 30th birthday”
I booked goofy games for a family 30th birthday. From the outset the sales and admin team were fantastic and so helpful and accomodating. Any queries were responded to and resolved within a day.
The games were great fun. I was worried as we had 3 children aged 10 and under so thought there may be some they wouldn't be able to do but they managed to do everything. The spectators had a good time laughing at all of us too!
