Boise Scavenger Hunt Adventure

3 reviews
Instead of a traditional sightseeing tour, get to know Boise in a unique way with a scavenger hunt. The city becomes a game board on this walking tour with an Amazing Race–style twist where you'll learn a bit of local history and discover both popular and lesser-known sights as you solve clues and tackle challenges to complete the adventure. Please note, the price is per-person but you must book with your team in order to be part of the same hunt.
$20.60 per adult

Do not waste your hard earned money at this zoo. Not only was just about every exhibit closed and barricades set up throughout the park making it feel like a war zone, the staff we extremely rude and discriminatory against those with health issues. It was my daughters 9th birthday and all she wanted was to go to the zoo with her bestie. She was very disappointed by the lack of visibility of the animals and all the closures. Because there is no requirement for what type of mask, rules for if someone has touched the handle of a door and then their mask, put their mask on and off again numerous times, etc., a much more effective way to stay safe is to physical distance. I watched so many kids (and adults) touch the window, the rails, their masks, then the next exhibit. They did not use hand sanitizer in between and they crowded around the food area - no distancing. Two weeks ago we went to the Omaha Zoo in Nebraska - the second largest zoo in the country - where visitors are able to roam freely between enclosures outside with no masks. They watched that everyone social distanced. That is staying safe. Zoo Boise did NOT do that! The contrast between this tiny, arrogant zoo and the Omaha Zoo were night and day. As much as we loved Zoo Boise in the past, we will not be supporting this facility in the future for their behavior last week. My daughter even cancelled her Homeschool Zoo date this week because of it. We are very disappointed.

The Boise Zoo is quite small but you have to remember that Boise is not a huge city. The zoo is very nice. They had closed the visitor shop, probably because of COVID, but they had arranged to sell t-shirts and other things outside in a nice covered area where you could be more socially distanced. The entire Zoo was arranged so that you could go only ONE way the whole time. It was very well done, and marked clearly. But a few of the indoor exhibits were closed, again probably because of COVID. They had some beautiful animals and exhibits. It is located near a very beautiful park with good parking, lots of shade, picnic tables, paths, restrooms and a fun paddle boat rental pond nearby. The Boise Green Belt is right there too! We had lots of fun at the Boise Zoo!

This zoo is always a hoot! My esteemed spouse And I spent the loveliest afternoon there. It’s a small zoo, a pocket zoo if you will, but it has a little bit of everything for everyone! The animals were out and about and also were enjoying a lovely spring day. It’s easy to walk, has interesting and informative plaques, the animals are easy to see... plan your afternoon adventure today!

As the only zoo for a thousand miles or so, Boise zoo is home to many children in the State of Idaho and and other states near by. I love taking my grandsons here so they can run wild and learn more about our endangered animals. Boise Zoo has expanded its complex and has made it really enjoyable for a small state.
