P1020637 One of the Life Size Mousetrap guys collects donations
after the show.
The creators' description of the Life Size Mousetrap says:
"The unique design of this giant, Rube Goldberg-style contraption was cleverly gleaned from the memories of childhood, twisted out of scale, then sketched beyond life size. It features an enormous construct of crazy stairs, a flame-throwing lamppost, careening bowling balls, and a hand-built, 30-foot-tall crane capable of lifting and dropping 5 tons!
Our lucky players get to lift a 400-lb cast-iron bathtub 13 feet into the air, crank cranks, load springs and turn impossibly huge gears, all in a supreme effort to crush a trinket of meaning (say, a 1,200 lb pumpkin) under a falling 2-ton bank safe!"
See the explanation of how the Life Size Mousetrap works in this video on YouTube. In this video they make Mousetrap's one and only political joke: "hey Moses, what can you see from up there?" Moses replies: "I can see Sara Palin's house!"
