Build a Big Wheel Racetrack

The example above requires about 50' x 40' of space and 9 Explorer Kits

Each individual Arch above is about 8′ x 4′ x 2′ and is made with 1 Explorer Kit.  You will need a lot of open space and multiple Explorer Kits to create a racetrack like this.  The fun is both in the building (and rebuilding after crashes) and in the race itself.

Want something different? Try…

  • Adding or removing Arches as needed to best utilize your available space
  • Increasing the height of the Arches from 2 units high (4′ high) to 3 units (6′ high) if you have bigger kids or teens
  • Replacing the Big Wheel with a skateboard, tricycle, roller skates, etc.

Great for creating compelling social media content.

Build a Nerf Battle Arena

The example above requires about 60' x 20' of space and 20 Explorer Kits

Each Small Wall is about 6′ x 4′ x 2′ built with one Explorer Kit and each Large Wall is about 6′ x 6′ x 2′ built with 2 Explorer Kits.  You’ll need a lot of space to build these walls.  Combine the Small Walls and Large Walls to create a Capture the Flag Arena, Nerf Battle Zone, or Laser Tag Arena.

The fun isn’t just in the battle.  The fun is also in the build and using teamwork to create your battle arena.

Build a Giant Maze

The example above requires about 30' x 30' of space and 10 Explorer Kits

Use an online maze generator to generate a giant maze for…

  • Kids
  • Robots
  • Remote control toys
  • Cats
  • Rabbits
  • More


  • Increase or reduce the size of the maze as needed to fill your space
  • Avoid having any panels that are more than two units away from a corner. This often requires modifying the maze generator results to avoid having long straight walls without corners.
  • Increase the height of the maze to 2 units tall or even 3 units tall to work with bigger kids and teens

Built exclusively with Make-A-Fort Explorer Kits.  Each Kit contains 20 panels, so the size of your maze will determine how many kits you will need. Order your kits today!

Build a Fort City

The example above requires about 35' x 25' of space and 12 Explorer Kits

Build a whole city of forts using any of our Projects.  Great for sleepover events.  Multiple kids can sleep in the same fort and kids take take their own pillows and blankets inside the forts to sleep in their forts overnight.

The fort city above is made by building twelve of the Mansion X1 Project.
