Surrounded by mirrors and LED lights, groups must put their navigational skills to the test through this futuristic maze.

With a diverse base of fans and around the world, Korea's entertainment culture has become its greatest asset not just in attracting leisure tourists. The South Korean capital Seoul, home to a thriving behemoth entertainment industry, offers groups plenty of unique experiences for MICE groups in the city.

Planners can make a play for the light-hearted with a visit to a themed attraction in Insa Dong created after one of the most prolific Korean variety shows, Running Man. The ultimate goal? A chance to compete and accumulate more than 80 points and become the 'eighth' member of the show.

At the 900-sqm attraction, groups are able to step into the shoes of a contestant of the television show and battle their way through a series of 12 challenges across six experience zones within the allotted time of 60 minutes. The attraction will be able to host small- to medium groups, with a minimum of 50 pax and maximum of 200-250 pax split across seven teams. Participants will be assigned one of 25 names at random.

Teams will utilise various logic and kinetic skills, completing tasks such as puzzle solving, ball throwing, running and jumping on the spot, and navigating various kinds of mazes - through pitch darkness to a maze course that requires participants to crouch down to find a way out. Teams will even be able to put their strength and screaming abilities to the test.

Another highlight of the race course is the final leg where contestants race through a futuristic-looking mirror maze filled with LED lights - the perfect background for groups seeking a social media worthy backdrop.
