Your Como Quest Mission

Dive into a global adventure in the heart of Como Park Zoo and Conservatory and discover more to learn–and love–about the animals and plants in our care. Your Como Quest mission, if you choose to accept it, will send you and your team on a treasure hunt through the rainforest habitat of Tropical Encounters, the coastal landscapes of Como Harbor, the tundra of Polar Bear Odyssey and the lush gardens of the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory on an unforgettable adventure exploring Minnesota’s most visited conservation destination.

Como Friends’ Como Quest is a wild exploration designed for multigenerational fun, as kids and adults work together to unlock conservation clues, collect rewards, and uncover exciting new secrets about animals, plants and the planet we share. With an interactive smart phone app and an adventurous spirit, your team of treasure hunters will dig deep into Como’s amazing animal and plant collections, while supporting the best care possible for the animals and plants and free admission that is so important to our community.

Como Quest Tickets

Your Como Quest ticket allows you to create the team of your choice through the GooseChase scavenger hunt app, available for iPhone, Android and other mobile platforms. All will enjoy a family-friendly mix of hands-on activities, games and crafts for kids, and a digital silent auction, fund-a-need and other donor opportunities for adults.

Como Quest takes place on Saturday, June 4 and Sunday, June 5—whichever day you choose to attend, each day will be the same so you won’t miss out on any of the fun.Tickets can be purchased for your team of four, five or six. Your team includes children and adults. Children age three and under participate for free! If your group is bigger than six, we recommend playing as two teams of four and “competing” against each other.
