# 5: Create a chain reaction

We start this Top 5 with something creative. Create a chain reaction! In just over an hour you can design your own Rube Goldberg-inspired construction. American cartoonist Rube Goldberg invented a complex device that can trigger a chain reaction. You will work in small teams to create such a Rube Goldberg machine yourself. Are you going to compete against each other or will you work together? You can also choose to create one BIG chain reaction with the whole team. If that does not boost the team spirit… UP’s Chain Reaction activity is educational, stimulates creativity and a solution-oriented approach and requires serious, communicative cooperation from the employees. Most important of all;this activity is simply super fun and inspiring.

# 2: Escape Challenge Morte Frio

Morte Frio is the most blood-curdling game in this “Tips New Years event”-list. This Escape Challenge is based on ‘Morte Frio’, a Guerrilla and drug cartel in Colombia. This game is all about fighting, hostage-taking and murder. As a team, you hold hostage someone on the edge of the Amazon in a white van. But oh dear! A witness appears. Then there is only one thing left to do: take out the witness. Is your team succeeding in defusing the witness rather than being dismantled yourself?
