Can your group break the underground marble run record?

A little ambition is quickly awakened in this "hands on" team building activity. What does it take to be successful? Doers or thinkers, or maybe a good mix of both elements? Many roads lead to the goal when the marble is rolling. Bring your team's strengths to meet this challenge. Laughs and valuable conclusions about current team dynamics are guaranteed.

As we have enough space in our underground system, this experience can easily be undertaken at the same time as the standard guided tour or the Domino track building.
