DEJA ZOO – ESCAPE EXPERIENCE

Tired of virtual get-togethers? Escape the Zoom! Get your team of up to 10 players and head over to the Buttonwood Park Zoo to see if you have what it takes to solve puzzles, decode clues, conquer challenges, and work together in order to stop your timer and earn a place in our Hall of Fame!

Escape experiences take place after the zoo has closed, include access to buildings currently closed to the public AND an Animal Ambassador encounter.

Each experience lasts 90 minutes and costs $300.

For more information and to schedule your after-hours experience, email Carrie Hawthorne at carrie.hawthorne@newbedford-ma.gov or call (508) 991-6178 ext. 67413.

“Everyone had a blast! Our guide was energetic, patient, helpful, and really seemed to enjoy what she was doing. The escape room was definitely challenging but not impossible. Roaming the entire zoo after hours was cool and I love that they worked in a bathroom break! I would definitely recommend this to others!”

“We had such a great time! We don’t get to spend as much time together (especially without kids) so this was such a fun way to get together! Every person in our group really enjoyed themselves. Our guide was fantastic. We also enjoyed the Animal Ambassador encounter at the beginning! Such a fun addition to the experience.”

“Deja Zoo was such a fun, amazing experience! The kids (and two adults) had the best time! We can’t say enough about our guide! She made it extra fun and engaging!”
