Barrier Busters

Conquer AdventureParkHK together

Grab five friends and race against other teams to complete the course.

But there’s a catch.

Each team member competes without sight, hearing or voice, or with arms or legs restricted.

Together you must navigate AdventureParkHK – and overcome the invisible, but very real, physical challenges many people face every day.

The fun and excitement starts in Central on Sunday morning 14 January 2018.

So get your team together and sign up to be a BARRIER BUSTERS!
