The Hoddle Waddle trail was different and unique. And, in my opinion, was a huge change from the City Grid trail. Although our group didn’t get to complete all seven tasks, I think we really got accustomed to working with each other.
I found the way the clues were phrased interesting and found that they really made me think. However, if I were to do this trail again I would try to keep track of time, let alone the tram schedule, which would hopefully avoid wasting extreme amounts of time waiting.
What I like about this trail is that it’s set up and ready to go- it takes minimal planning and you spend most of your time learning and not pondering upon ways to get around. It was a great contrast to the City Grid. However, what I didn’t like was the tram system; too much time was wasted waiting and in a way it stressed us out.
Despite what I mentioned previously about wasting time planning, I preferred the City Grid Trail because we had the ability to plan our own route to suit us best to allow us to travel smoothly and satisfy our needs. Spending half an hour waiting for the City Circle at Docklands Park was quite a put off. And the moral of the story is:
‘Don’t trust the City Circle tram. Ever.’
