Game description

The sack race is deemed to be an absolute classic on every children's party – with lots of fun for children and adults. All you need for this game is a big and sturdy garbage bag. Recommended are those with a 120l volume. The bag has to be inflated to its brim. The objective is for every participant to ride on his plastic bag as long as possible or cover a certain distance. As soon as the plastic bag bursts, the player is eliminated. The winner is who stays on his plastic bag the longest. It is important for the youth worker to observe the game so that each player has the same opportunities.


Alternatively, the bag racer can also organise a sprint race. Therefore, you will need a start and finishing line. The fastest racer wins, the one with a burst plastic bag is eliminated.


The player with the last intact bag or the fastest racer wins
