Rat Trap

Rat Trap is a fantastic event that where teams build a series of huge contraptions which when placed in the right sequence perform an amazing chain reaction of events. Each structure triggers the next in an ingenious way.  If teams get everything right the final piece is triggered as the one ton weight drops and the rat gets it (well not literally).

In Rat Trap groups have to work in unison rather than competition. Teams must use their ingenuity to work out what goes where, and who does what.  This means the end result is a pure representation of their endeavours, resourcefulness and communication.  The trick with Rat Trap is for teams to be conscious of the bigger picture, as each structure has to be built in the right way and be placed in the right position for everything to work.  The end result, which started life as a room full of ‘bits’ never fails to inspire groups and show them what they are capable of when they apply a little teamwork and lateral thinking.

Rat Trap is completely mobile and can be run in any location and works well at most venues indoors or outdoors in the summer. It’s also very flexible time wise and can last from 60 minutes to 2hrs according to what you want to achieve.

This is a fun, exciting and flexible teambuilding game that encourages strong teamwork and communication that produces a visually rewarding and entertaining finale.
