Make a Memory

ZooQuest is a challenging quest-based program, taking place on Saint Louis Zoo grounds. Part trivia challenge and part scavenger-hunt, it guarantees your family team will never look at the Saint Louis Zoo the same way again. You’ll notice signs you usually walk right past, colors that aren’t usually noticed, and details that make the Zoo unique. For example, do you know how many animals on the Conservation Carousel have purple saddles? Family ZooQuest has “easier” to solve parts for the children, with harder challenges for adults, but you’ll have to work together to complete your quests! Using observation and time-management skills to solve the puzzle-based quests, it’s sure to be a day of education and fun!

ZooQuest – Sensational Seasons!

Put your Zoo knowledge to the test with ZooQuest! In this adventure-based family program you will traverse the Zoo, solving puzzles and learning intriguing new twists.
