Mission Impossible: Lowry Park Zoo

Lowry Park Zoo

Overview

Looking for an intensely collaborative, fast-paced, suspenseful, and competitive team building experience? Have you team experience Mission Impossible: The Wilds of Lowry Park Zoo! With more than 1,700 animals, housed in 56 acres of lush natural habitats, Lowry Park Zoo offers a wild experience!

The Mission: Working as secret agents against other teams, your team mission is to crack the codes of up to a 9 complex missions; determine the mission location; solve the mind stretching challenges of each mission and return back to headquarters with the answers that will save the team. Mission Impossible? Only time will tell in this high-energy event.

Each team is armed with a backpack of supplies as they race through the wilds of the Lowry Park Zoo. Teams must decipher each code that will lead the team to the mission challenge area. Upon arrival to the location, teams will uncover their secret mission – and hopefully complete their mission successfully before moving on to crack the next code. Watch out! Spies are in the field – your team must move undetected.

Unlike your typical scavenger hunt that leads teams point to point sequentially – this playing field is wide open. Your team has the opportunity to head north, south, east or west – the choice is up to you! Mission Impossible is about strategy – we don’t tell you where to go – you decide the best route based on a series of complex clues. Which team will have the best strategy? Which team will crack the most codes? Which team will complete the most missions? It’s not the fastest teams that win – it’s the smartest teams!
