A GREAT opportunity to create a one of a kind zoo family memory!

Visiting your local zoo now can be more fun and exciting than ever before (currently 139 versions - one for every major zoo in the US - visit our Etsy store for a zoo near you!) The Great Zoo Adventure Hunt at the Columbus Zoo was designed by a professional themed treasure hunt designer and is mailed right to your door. Simply take the colorfully wrapped package with you to the zoo, open the small starter envelope once you’re inside and you’re OFF! There is NOTHING to set up - ALL of the materials are included. That’s right…because you didn’t have to spend the countless hours creating this elaborate hunt, YOU get to enjoy it with your family!

So…what exactly IS the Great Zoo Adventure Hunt at the Columbus Zoo and what comes with it? Opening the large package will reveal a two page mega list of fun tasks to complete once you are inside the zoo. The more tasks you complete, the more points you’ll earn enabling you to open different colorful envelopes, each containing an opportunity to earn one Habitat Gem. You see, the famous zoologist Dr. Animus Penderghast, has lost pages to his precious journal. Each page details how to help a different animal from a different world habitat. Helping that animal will earn you the Habitat Gem! Can you and your family collect all seven Habitat Gems before your stay at the zoo is over?

Colorful envelopes…antiqued journal pages…and what are you supposed to do with that pipe cleaner? Or the plastic animal? You’ll just have to open the right Habitat Envelopes to find out!

How long does it last? As long as you’d like. Start when you like. Stop when you like. Start, stop, then start up again, if you like. You can even visit the zoo another time and pick up where you left off!

This adventure hunt was designed with the whole family in mind. Some activities are great for younger children…others for the older kids (that can sometimes be difficult to entertain at the zoo…) Grandparents and grandchildren will all be able to participate and contribute in the different tasks together. Small children can help look for clues and open envelopes. Teens will have fun during some of the more daring challenges.

SO FUN!!! There are LAYERS to this package! This whole design is so thoughtful, so accessible, and so flexible! We did this as our activity for our wedding reception (instead of dancing at a formal venue, we decided to do adventures at the zoo). We had four tables of guests, at 5-6 people per table. We set it up so after brunch, each table became a team for the adventure hunt. It was great to have a guided activity so everyone could enjoy the excursion together and get to know each other better in the process. We spent about 1 1/2 hours around the zoo trying to complete our tasks, but no one finished all seven tasks - most of us completed about 3-4. Which we think is a good thing! We let everyone take home their packages, and everyone is looking forward to going back to the zoo to complete the hunt in their own time!

I took my nieces this past weekend and they had a blast. They were trying so hard to get the gems quickly. I really enjoyed seeing how much fun they were having. I even think the animals came second to the game. I would definitely order another kit from here if we take them somewhere again. There is also very genuine customer service. Thank you for such an excellent kit.
