Bronx Zoo Scavenger Hunt & Wildlife Day on Sunday, September 8 from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM

The Bronx Zoo is one of the most treasured attractions in the city and one of those destinations that you always mean to go to but never find the time (or someone to go with).  Our Bronx Zoo Scavenger Hunt is the perfect way for you to check this off your list plus meet fun people (and animals) along the way!    The scavenger hunt is meant to be easy, fun and educational.  Most will come on their own but if you have a team already let us know.  You will have plenty of time to socialize and explore on your own after the hunt is finished.

How it works:

  • Check in time will be at 11am sharp. (If you are late it will be very hard to get you on a team)
  • If you do not have a team we will set up teams of 4-6 depending on the total number of participants.
  • Each team will be given a sheet of clues that they have to find.
  • The actual hunt portion is 90 Minutes.
  • Teams will return to a specific area and we will tally up the scores and hand out prizes!
  • You can eat and drink at the cafe while we are tallying up the scores.
  • Following the awards you can explore the tour on your own or with your new friends at you own pace.

What kinds of things are we looking for? Easy stuff that is easily found in the exhibits, on the animals and in the park itself.

What if it rains? If dangerous weather we will reschedule.  You will  have the option to join the rain date or get a rain check voucher to go to the zoo on your own for a future date and receive a partial payback for the scavenger hunt portion ($27) . There are no refunds.

Do I need experience? No, it is designed to be easy to make it more fun for everyone.
