Hermit Crab racing is a fun, exciting and interactive activity for children and adults alike. Perfect for cocktail hour or as an addition to any fund raising event. Each contestant chooses a colorful hermit crab and the host places their crabs in the center of the playing board. As the gate is raised the crabs head for the finish line. Finish line is circular around the perimeter of the board; first one to cross wins. Anywhere from 4 to 12 crabs can race at once each race takes about 3 minutes, which means a lot of contestants in a short amount of time. Comes with everything you see plus prizes and a host.
