Tribes Crystal Maze TAKEOVER
March 23rd, 2018
On Wednesday 21st March sixty-one of our team members travelled from far and wide to take part in our first Tribes National event of 2018…and it was a-MAZE-ing!
The teams met up in Manchester at The Crystal Maze Live Experience where we organized a private hire of the entire venue, to host an exciting day of exhilarating challenges to encourage some healthy competition and let our teams have some good ol' fun!
They were greeted by the eccentric Crystal Maze “maze masters” who were “insane and each had their own unique character but the passion was strong”. They led our teams into the maze with bundles of enthusiasm and excitement and really created a realistic and enthusiastic atmosphere.
After a full health and safety meeting, our teams were grouped into their tribes and given their coloured bibs. As soon as the bibs were quickly pulled over their heads, a palpable sense of competition and ambition to win was unleashed!
With everyone ready and rearing to go, the teams were given instructions and before you could say, “It's about the taking part that counts” they were off like rockets.
The aim of the game was to work in their Tribe team to complete 4 different zones with various puzzles, mystery tasks, mental and physical challenges, just like the 90's popular tv show! Lucy from Didsbury explained “the challenges seemed simple when looking at them from the outside but when you were locked in the room on your own the pressure hit and your brain would stop working. With your team cheering you on, you felt compelled to give it your all and really get stuck in. By the end of it we had made new friends! Each challenge was different from the last and the way they had staggered each team meant we didn’t run into any opposition. All in all it was extremely well organised.”
The teams needed to collect as many crystals as possible from the different zones to earn extra time in the final dome.
At the end of the maze there was the crystal dome, which was just like TV! The teams cheered on and watched from the sidelines as each team were bundled in and frantically attempted to grab flying gold tickets, the one with the most would win. Everyone was in really high spirits and there were no sore losers, which was admirable!
Paul from The Botanist Chester said “amazing Tribes event…even though we did come last I loved it and it was great fun”. Megan from The Club House Liverpool described it as an “AMAZING day” and agreed with Coral from Leeds who said, “It was so fun!”
The champion tribe for the day who completed 4 zones, with a total of 10 Crystals, 237 Tokens in the dome was...MAYFLOWER!!! They earned their entire tribe 600 Tribes points and were awarded the engraved Crystal trophy, organized by our Tribes Elder, Tamara Johnson, who described it as an “INCREDIBLE day”.
We are thrilled that everyone enjoyed our first Tribes event of the year. We can’t wait to catch up with more of our teams as they take part in more challenges to earn our Tribes even more points!
