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 Woodland Park Zoological Gardens 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 Woodland Park Zoological Gardens 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.

HUGE distraction on our visit at the zoo. For people who are bored with the zoo. The prompts are random and mostly unrelated to the animals. You will be expected to “look for someone wearing yellow pants or blue sunglasses”, etc. Ughh! I do not go to the zoo to watch the humans! We missed out on the newborn gorilla because this hunt was such a time suck, the exhibit was closed when we got there. Make sure young children know not to point at people when they find the prompts. Some prompts made me cringe, like “drink from 4 water fountains.” Yuck. I also did not enjoy all the paper trash this activity generates from all the slips and envelopes. We stopped after two jewels. Majorly regret this scavenger hunt. I would have rather spent my money on a zoo donation and spent my visit on the animals.

Response from Joe Dean

Hi I wanted to reach out and apologize for your disappointment with our zoo challenge. We've received rave reviews in the past for this product from others, but we believe because they were using it as something to augment their stay at the zoo (which was our intention so that you weren't distracted while with the animals. Again, we definitely apologize if this was not the activity you were looking for. I look forward to voluntarily processing a refund for this item and am grateful for this chance to explain better our intent when designing our zoo challenge because treasure hunts and scavenger hunts are very difficult to describe on Etsy (we can't get too specific or the surprises are given away :) )

This is an incredible scavenger hunt that is well thought out and challenging. We did this with our youth group at the Memphis Zoo last weekend and they had a blast running around the zoo and trying to accomplish all of the challenges. Joe is very responsive to messages and answered all our questions and rushed our last minute order to us. He was also very honest about whether he thought it could make it before we ordered it. All in all this was a great product, with great customer service, and we had a blast with it. If your thinking about doing a scavenger hunt i highly recommend this one! (It’s way better than trying to do it yourself)

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.
