Chain Reactions

Grab your family and friends, and help us create a giant chain reaction!

Each team of up to five people will be responsible for designing a chain reaction to carry across their designated area and connect to the next team's. Use our boxes of random toys, kitchen equipment, blocks and balls (plus our good friend gravity) to move a reaction from one end of your table to the other. Practice makes perfect! In the end, we'll set the full chain reaction off in style, and cheer as the dominoes fall, towers crumble and balls roll toward an exciting finale.

Book in for a one-hour time slot. You'll have 45 minutes to make and test your chain reaction and then we'll cross our fingers and make it go!
