A giant structure of girders some 25 metres high; each element is a cube, 2.5 metres a side, stacked in a row of 10 as the base, another 10 on top, forming a vertical snakes and ladders board.

Actual ladders lead from some cubic "squares" up to others; some of the cubes have metal or plastic (transparent) slides which go down one (or many) levels, in a spiral if necessary. Players are provided with mats to sit on when going down the slides.

On one side of the "game board", about 25m away, is a huge display showing the name of the next player, and a representation of one face of a die. Players have a key-fob remote that they push when it's their turn, to get a number randomly generated for their next move.

       They had something like this at a theme park I went to once - it was on a steep hillside, with staircases and slides. Wasn't a full 10x10 grid though, and you had to carry your own dice with you.
