Spring 2006 event - Facts and figures

Our 14 main activity bases have never been busier. In total there were well over 500 visits to them, with many able to cope with more than one team at once. The busiest was the bouncy castle at Base L which received 52 of the 63 teams. The organisers of the virtual caving challenge at Base G had the quietest night, only entertaining 25 teams. 24 made it to Base P which was just an extra 50 points for finding it with no activity. And while only 31 teams made it to the Zipline activity, those that did were so impressed with it that it won the award for Favourite Activity Base.

The tables below tell you how many teams made it to each of the main activity bases as well as the other controls.
