Description of the Event


The competitors will be cordially welcomed with a delicious cocktail made of fresh tropical fruits. After a shortwalk to enter into the heart of our forest, they will arrive to the Visitors’ Center. In our premises they will get ready to start the competition. Soon after this, they will meet the group of arbiters and facilitators who will provide instructions and rules to quickly start the competition.

Organization of the Teams

After the instructional speech, we organize the different teams. They will receive distinctive color items such as bracelets, T-shirts or caps chosen by each guest. The number of members of each team will be determined according to the total score of the group.

Elaboration of Banners and War Cry

Each team has to be identified with animal specie that according to its main characteristics would reflect the vigor of the team. Each team should appoint a spokesperson or leader who will represent the team. With materials such as carton, paint and natural elements, the team has to elaborate a banner that will be its distinction during the entire competition. It should also elaborate a war cry accompanied by a short choreography that will show the capacities and energy of the group.

Start the Competition

The ceremony starts in the Main Garden with the presentation of each War Cry and the Banner to the competitions. Here, the general arbiter will give the order to start and the flame of the competition will light. The teams are sworn promising to make their best efforts to defeat the competitors and committing with the members of the team.

Distribution of Riddles

Before each team enters into the Tram, a list of very complicated list of riddles will be distributed. While the team work continues, it may interrupt the tasks to enjoy the beauty of the Rain Forest aboard our Gondolas accompanied by a facilitator who will introduce the competitors to this world of incredible beauty and extraordinary biological diversity found in the Rain Forest - Atlantic. The opened Gondolas have capacity for 6 passengers and the facilitator. Each team will ride through the irregular topography of the forest, the canopy or tree tops at a maximum height of 115 feet.

The team has to unlock the clues and meet the tasks requested when it comes down and it has to deliver the material to the main arbiter and shout the War Cry. Then, the next instructions to reach to Dynamics of the Clues are given.

Dynamics of the Clues

The clues are put in strategic places in the collection in Bocaraca Trail and in the Butterfly Hut. Once the clues are unlocked, each group has to deliver the material to the main arbiter and shout the War Cry. Then, they will receive a copy of the Treasure's Map. There is only one treasure, but many ways to find it. Each group will have one version and it will depend on the team's work to find it.

Search of the Treasure

The map will lead those daring searchers of treasures to the exact place where the treasure is hidden. Each group is important in order to discover the enigma and to make it possible for one group to be the winner.

Our treasure is in some spot of the forest, or in the gardens. During this journey, the world of the rain forest can be observed, as well as the trees hugging ones to the others leaving scarce gaps for light to filtrate. Enjoying the sound of quietude, the facilitator will keep the spirit of competition alive as well as the cohesion of the groups in order to success.

Winners Celebration

The group that can solve the map and find the coffer of the treasure has to bring the booty to the meeting area. The winning group will receive the recognition due to its exceptional performance. Once more the group will shout its War Cry and will receive the medals and will open the coffer. It will be an important celebration time of the entire group after working in teams for having fun, recognize individual qualities and virtues and the importance of the team work.
