Game description

This is a game more suitable for older participants and only then when you have a lightweight aluminium ladder available. This game can be played as an individual competition or team against team. Always two kids work together, holding the ladder vertically and balance it at the same time. This way they have to complete an obstacle course. Make sure the obstacles are not too difficult to do and even more so, make sure there are no branches or power lines in the way. Those kids who are waiting for their turn have to stand at a safe distance, in the case, someone drops the ladder. Despite all precautions, the ladder might tilt to an angle where the kids might not be able to balance it anymore.


The winner is the team which got its ladder first through the finishing line
