The game is afoot!  All ages will enjoy this family friendly survival game adventure.

Animals have special adaptations that help them survive, but competition in the wild can be fierce!

Your mission when you step onto our life-sized outdoor game trail is to use your knowledge and animal instincts to help an animal survive for 10 days in the wild. What challenges will you face? Your choices will be the map that guides you through the trails. Answer correctly and to hike your way to victory!

Choose your favorite animal species or play every week to become an animal kingdom expert!
