The Helium Stick requires the team to lower the stick to the ground while at no point losing contact with it. It sounds simple enough in theory, but in practice is one of the most difficult tasks to successfully complete and one of the most fun. The game requires great leadership and the ability to give and follow clear instructions in order to be able to complete.

The stick is placed upon the extended index fingers of each of the team members who are stood in two rows facing each other. The team must lower the stick to the ground, all the time ensuring that each member has their finger in contact with the stick. The stick is called a helium stick because it never seems to go down - unless the team is super-efficient.
