Escape the Beardsley Zoo Scavenger Hunt

Only great teamwork can save you

Well, that and the antidote. See, you’ve been poisoned at the start of this game, thanks to a diabolical villain. He has created a scavenger hunt at the Beardsley Zoo, in which you have to follow a trail of clues to uncover the strangest, most surprising details about exotic animals. If you can solve the villain’s tricky, brain-bending puzzles and reveal a concealed code, you’ll get the antidote. The deadline—which could be literal—is 90 minutes.

Along the way, you’ll get a whirlwind tour of some of the zoo’s most amazing animals and exhibits, and come to appreciate the vital role played by this modern-day ark. But the surprising creatures you might get to know best are your own teammates, as the game brings out your various talents. No knowledge of the zoo is required to survive this challenge. You just need to demonstrate great teamwork, have fun, and outwit an evil genius.

If you like “escape rooms,” but want to delight the people in your group who don’t love puzzles or being locked up in one room for an hour, this is a great crowd-pleasing alternative.

The Wild Wildlife Scavenger Hunt

The zoo is filled with clues

…on the scavenger hunt that reveals the best of the Beardsley Zoo. On teams, you’ll follow a trail of clues around this very walkable zoo, and answer tricky, humorous questions about the animals you find. Who’d guess that you can find an Amur tiger in Connecticut? Or a two-toed sloth, bison, prairie dogs, giant anteaters, a red panda, wolves, pygmy goats, and many more marvels from around the world?

Along the way, you’ll have to complete unusual photo challenges and meet up with the Hunt Host to tackle a surprising bonus challenge. No knowledge of wildlife is required: you just need sharp eyes, comfy shoes, and a sense of humor.

Your teammates will not only be collaborating with and getting to know each other, you’ll also be supporting this modern-day ark in its mission to protect and share the wonders of marvelous wildlife. The zoo grounds themselves are also a delight, with a sculpture garden, exotic trees, a garden, and a carousel. If you are looking for an activity that takes a diverse group of people, takes them to an extraordinary place and reveals wonders from across the globe, all while bonding through a shared adventure—then this is the game for you!
