West Wind Hunt –
Zephyrus is the West Wind and, being a cowboy, is a favorite of the kids. Thus this hunt is aimed at families. To complete this quest your family must venture to Phalen Park on the East side of the city. There Zephyrus has set loose 15 of his horses which have scattered around the park. But fear not! Zephyrus has also provided clues for the parents to figure out and will help guide each family to where the horses are hiding. When you find a horse, it will have a riddle for the kids to figure out regarding the favorite food of that horse. Enter that food name into the Goosechase app to complete the mission.
The winning team, with the highest score will get a $500 prize, if you have a 2023 Saint Paul Winter Carnival button courtesy of our Presenting Sponsor, Priority Courier Experts! Each team can have as many members as you would like to split the prize with, but only one person per team can register in the app. The missions will be available to your team leader through the app, and we will also email an electronic copy that the team can share.
The hunt begins at 9am on Saturday, January 28th and will end Sunday, February 5th at 6pm so your team will have until then to finish. Each mission accomplished will be worth 500 points. However, you can earn up to 250 bonus points the faster you complete the mission. You can also earn another 250 points per mission by completing the missions in order. In the end, the team with the highest point total will win the prize (ties will go to the first team to complete all the missions). But even if you don’t get the top prize, you’ll still get to enjoy the experience and the satisfaction of solving all the clues!
