Hells Bells is a fun indoor teambuilding event with a fantastic finale!
The objective is for the group to work as a whole to complete a giant 3D working sculpture. Teams do not instantly work out that it's essential for them to work together and this gradual realisation culminates in a "light bulb" moment of realisation when the penny drops.
Because the game involves solving puzzles using many different disciplines, creating costumes and constructing model sculptures it appeals to the widest range of participants. The key is for all these people to use their individual skills to come together successfully as one big team.
Hells Bells Teambuilding Event
On arrival teams are greeted by the Master of Scrolls. The storyline and objective are introduced. The journey of discovery starts to unravel and teams are directed to their team bases where they find a selection of brightly coloured pieces, which will eventually form part of the "working machine".
The first challenge is in the form of team packs. Each pack contains sections of the overall objective. Teams decipher puzzles and follow clues to make sure that they gather all the information that they need and find all the pieces to their sculptures. Participants also create costumes for characters in the story.
The second challenge is the assembly of the sculptures. Each team has their own beautifully crafted sculpture which creates a "working machine" in its own right. If teams follow their trail of clues correctly and construct their sculptures accurately then all the sculptures come together to create a giant 3D puzzle.
The Grand Finale!
When teams have successfully assembled the giant 3D puzzle the sculptures are primed and the Master of Scrolls recounts the story before setting the first sculpture into motion to trigger a chain reaction. Just like a giant game of 'mousetrap' or 'dominoes'!
The sculptures automatically and sequentially come to life in an ingenious and theatrical ending. This spectacle is immensely satisfying for participants who can see immediately the importance of their teamwork. The result is a genuine and well-earned sense of achievement.
