Select the party ready option above, and our staff will fold and slip the clue cards for rounds one, two, and three into the envelopes to prevent you from seeing spoilers on the round cards.  If you do not select this option, you will have some assembly required with your kit.



Please note: younger guests may need some adult assistance in reading and solving clues! The game includes a fun scavenger hunt in round one and ends with an exciting challenge to find Garry Gator - the notorious prankster!  This game is ideally hosted at a home, as there are scavenger hunt clues to be found in general home locations (i.e. kitchen, kid's bedroom, etc.)

Zoo mystery party synopsis:

Oh no! Garry Gator the prankster is at it again! He escaped last night and hid five of his zoo animal friends in secret locations around the Oceanside Zoo! After his night of mischief, Garry Gator has crawled back into his swampy exhibit and is fast asleep. But before he conked out, he slipped some riddle-containing envelopes under the head zoo keeper's office door! We need to hurry and solve Garry Gator's riddles to figure out which of his friends he hid and where their secret locations are in the zoo before the customers arrive or the Mayor of Oceanside will have to shut down the zoo!
