Como Quest is a multi-generational, set-your-own-pace event! Based on feedback we’ve received, elementary and middle school aged children enjoy the event the most. Additionally, we found that teams composed of grandparents, parents, and kids all equally enjoy the experience.
Kids ages three (3) and under participate for free! For the littlest children, parts of the scavenger hunt will be challenging, but they will love being at the zoo and conservatory with their families! Ask for the Tots Quest when you check in for the event to receive an age appropriate activity for your youngest players.
The event is set up to accommodate all ages and abilities. Handicap parking is available in the Palm Lot and all event spaces can be accessed either by ramps or elevator. If you have specific questions about the accessibility of the event, reach out to Como Friends at email@example.com or 651-487-8229.
Yes! There will be both games and crafts included with your ticket. In fact, some of them will be a mission you’ll need to complete in order to earn points! There will also be a few activities available for an extra fee (no points associated) that will help us raise money to support Como Park Zoo & Conservatory!
No food will be provided, but Zobota Café will open at 10:00 a.m.
You will get your steps in! Wear comfortable shoes and clothing. The event will take place rain or shine!
There will be a silent auction full of only-Como items, family friendly activities, baskets, and experiences. It will go live on Friday, September 16 and close Sunday, September 18 at 11:00 a.m. There will be games and crafts as well!
The event will be exactly the same both days so we recommend only attending one day. We will be hosting Como Quest 2023 in June and September. The event concept will be the same, but the games, crafts, and missions will be completely different! Whether or not you participate in the event this September, you won’t want to miss it next year!
Yes! Depending on how many missions you solve/points you earn, there will be a prize for you. Teams that earn the most points will be entered in a drawing for an opportunity to go behind the scenes and feed the giraffes.
Tickets are non-refundable. If you are unable to attend, we suggest giving away your ticket to a friend or family member. We hope to see you at the event in September!
