Teams are required to complete a series of activities in four themed zones and must use their skills wisely using their strengths in order to rack up the Crystal rocks in their bid for success. With intriguing titles ranging from Chemical Imbalance to Xocolatl Pot, each of the unique themed challenges have a Mental, Physical or Skill slant, meaning that Crystal Mazed has something challenging for everyone.
