The Concept

One team one goal!

The inspiration for Trap the Rat comes from the famous board game mouse trap. We’ve taken the principles of fun and connectivity and designed an event that connects corporate team building groups.

The objective of the event is to build a series of huge contraptions which perform an amazing chain reaction when placed in the right sequence where each device 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 (literally). Standing over 6ft high, the structures take inspiration from the iconic style of Monty Python.


How It Works

Trap the Rat is a team building event where 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 representation of their endeavours, resourcefulness and communication. The trick with Trap the Rat 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.

*We recently upgraded the structures within the Trap the Rat challenge from the original ones we designed over 15 years ago. They are now more visually impressive creating a much greater wow factor and a more involved challenge. The result is a much more engaging and more memorable experience for your delegates. There is nothing else quite like it available in the industry.
