What is a Nightline?
An exploration of the senses. Ideally suitable for early years to young adults. This is a great team activity or equally fun as an individual challenge. The Nightline is essentially a rope which is there to guide you through a series of obstacles. If the rope goes over something then you must go over it, if it goes through something then you go through it and so on. The challenge is that throughout the course you will be blindfolded which will require you to call on your senses other than eyesight and communicate with your team around you.
For a younger audience, the Nightline can be presented with a Jungle theme to spark their imagination and enrich their learning. Often, with very young children, initially, they will set off without blindfolds to grow their confidence.
