The Family Coloured Obstacle (FCO) Challenge is an activity-filled afternoon out for the young and young at heart.

There will be an exciting obstacle course constructed with recycled materials and designed by Royal Phuket Marina, and there will also be brain teasers and games set up by local International schools.

Throughout the course participants will find themselves dodging handfuls of child-safe, brightly coloured flour – making this a kaleidoscopic and thrilling course.

All the participants will receive a medal and certificate upon completing the course, as well as a goody bag and cool stickers for the children.

At the end of the course there will be a fantastic chill-out area with a carnival atmosphere where food and beverages can be purchased.

DJ Tommy the Tank will provide fun music perfect for all ages with tasty food from Dusit Thani, Mr Moo and the Tuk Tuk Diner, and drinks from Horeca, Beervana and Brand Connect.

This entire course will be risk assessed by Mr Barrie Buck of Siam Guardian Services (SGS) who has also kindly agreed to provide security, traffic control and a first aid tent as extra precautions to ensure everyone has a safe and fun afternoon.
