It is a game set up in the atrium. A a race for toads....they have 4 or 5 lanes set up with a long length of rope in each lane. Attached to the rope are the cardboard toads (one on each rope with the rope running through a cut out hole in their middle.) By flicking the rope up and down or to the side you can move the toad along the length of rope. The first one in each heat to get their toad to the end of the length of rope is the winner.

It is much harder than it looks but everyone seems to have a good time!!!

If I remember correctly they take the first 20 or 25 people who sign up. The kids get a kick out of trying to flip the rope "just right" to get your toad to the finish line.

My step-daughter participated and also assisted the Cast Member (I think his name was Cameron) who organized the race.

There are usually 4 or 5 heats were the winner of each heat goes on to the next round.

Cameron explaining the rules.

Catherine assisting Cameron. Notice the registration board on the easel.

The race is on. You can bearly make out the toads within the pattern of the carpet.

The constestants pulling on their ropes.

It was lots of fun!
