How it works
Maelstrom is controlled from “The Hub” where a giant vertical game board charts teams’ progress to the central core. Teams buy moves with tokens, which are earned by completing an amazing variety of fun, interactive activity-based tasks, challenges and puzzles. These tasks are located across the five themed activity zones, and teams will select them according to their strengths and preferences. Racing against the giant digital countdown clock, teams must maximise their collective participation and performance, completing as many of the tasks as possible before the countdown clock reaches zero, with the first team reaching the game board’s ‘eye of the Maelstrom storm’ crowned winners.
Who it’s for
Maelstrom is for you if you want an exciting, fast-paced multi-activity event that is high energy and creates a dramatic sense of urgency. It works very well as a stand alone indoor team building activity to reward and develop teams, or as a dynamic activity on your conference agenda.
Maelstrom is an effective way to quickly create a sense of team unity and cohesion in a fast-paced, high stakes situation. Team members quickly gain an appreciation of their individual and group strengths, and play to these in an attempt to gain a competitive advantage.
