The Hungry Games, puts teams in the world of arena survival, while Crystal Mazed transports participants to Aztec, medieval, and futuristic zones to complete themed challenges.

KDM commercial director Nicky Whyman said: "Our clients have shown a surge of interest in adventure and survival activities, undoubtedly fuelled by what people are watching on screen. The Hunger Games and The Crystal Maze are typical of what has captured the public’s imagination and these provide fantastic scope for interpretation as team challenges."

Participants in The Hungry Games are challenged through combat and bush survival skills. In order to triumph for their ‘district’, teams must assemble the best camp they can, complete with waterproof shelters, live fires and eating utensils.

Crystal Mazed contestants complete four themed challenges in three time zones. Each one will incorporate a mental, physical or specific skill slant, requiring either a nominated player or the entire team to take part. Teams will earn as many crystal rocks as possible to trade for time in the finalé.

"Bookings are stacking-up for the summer season" added Whyman. "A lot of them are going to be spent outdoors and our event managers are very excited."
