Rat Trap

Rat Trap

The inspiration for Rat Trap comes direct from the famous board game Mousetrap, except ours is bigger and better!


RT2Imagine the atmosphere as your team enters a giant adults’ toyshop full of Meccano! The objective is to build a series of large contraptions which, when placed in the right sequence, perform an amazing chain reaction of events where each device triggers the next in an ingenious way.

If teams get everything right the final piece is triggered, the one ton weight drops and the rat gets it (well not literally).

RT3Rat Trap is a team building event where groups work collaboratively to achieve a common goal.

Rather than being led by instructions, teams use their own 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.

RT4The 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.
