Calling all puzzlers!
Locked Zoo is a 2-hour, zoo-wide escape game that challenges you to explore the zoo after hours, solve an elaborate series of puzzles, and learn about wildlife conservation.
This outdoor escape game will have you using your wits and getting your steps in, while solving challenging puzzles with a team of clever friends. Your team will explore select areas of the zoo to find the clues, solve the puzzles, and save the day! There's plenty of animals to see along the way without crowds or kiddos. Beverages (including adult ones!) will be available for purchase, and you can pre-order a delicious dinner box closer to the event date. The challenge will not be timed. Proceed at your leisure!
