The Crystal Challenge
The Crystal Challenge Overview
Inspired by the original Crystal Maze TV show, The Crystal Challenge has been given the Zing Events treatment to create our own unique activity!
The challenges are varied to suit all skills and are specially designed to encourage attributes including communication, logic, co -ordination, problem solving and time management.
How Does The Crystal Challenge Team Building Activity Work?
The event begins with the delegates arriving at the event space (if it’s a surprise then all the better!) to see the spectacular inflatable dome, with tickertape swirling inside, as the tunes pump out and the excitement grows.
They are then welcomed by the host, the Maze Master, who whips up the group and explains the rules and the challenges that await.
After a couple of quick energisers, the teams (either chosen pre-event or randomly picked on the day) are briefed about the competition.
There are up to 12 activities spread out over multiple zones. Small groups of 16 or less compete head to head at each activity to win crystals. Larger groups will rotate around the different games facing different opponents.
On our outdoor Crystal Challenge, each Zone has its own marquee dressed in themed flags. This adds both a ‘Wow’ factor as you enter the Crystal arena and also adds shelter if the weather is inclement!
Our indoor Crystal Challenge see all the same activities with each zone having its own up lit pop up banners to help theme the area. We have multiple inflatables domes, some are as low as 2.5 metres, so they can fit into most indoor spaces.
The activities are all facilitated by our games masters and will appeal to all age groups and abilities. You’ll get the chance to grab a nerf gun to play space pool, to channel your inner tribal warrior, to try out a mind-bending memory test, solve a series of codes to break into a safe, take up your bow and arrow, or maybe negotiate a path through laser beams.
After each activity the crystal is awarded to the winning team and the maze master moves you on to another challenge. It’s fun, energising and competitive with a half time coffee break before the teams return to battle it out for more crystals.
The Grand Finale
The grand finale will take place in the dome. Our inflatable dome is a wonder to behold; We turn on the fans and the ticker tape swirls inside like a giant snow globe. Contestants then try to grab for the most points as possible. For larger groups, everyone gets a chance inside the dome during the rotations and then the 4 top teams with the most crystals will have a final grab for glory.
