In order to escape he has to successfully complete the various tasks set for him by the Rabbids. Entering the arena, he then chooses which exit to pass through. Subsequently, the first task sees him having to throw the cow!-just like throwing the hammer at athletics but ...different!. After reaching the desired distance!, he is then back in the arena and chooses another exit. This time his task… Read more
