Gnomes are the oldest inhabitants of Mohonk, having carved out the Labyrinth and many of our rock formations. Yet, they’re devilishly hard to find! In this event, teams travel to various locations in search of different gnomes. Each gnome presents the group with a challenge that will reveal a secret combination for your next clue.
WILDERNESS SURVIVAL CHALLENGE
For countless generations, our predecessors thrived on this land building shelters, hunting, fishing, tracking, preparing tools and medicines. Reclaiming this ancestral knowledge is not as difficult as you might think and requires only a few ingredients: some raw materials, a fundamental understanding of the laws of nature and a passionate curiosity for learning. This journey can be a struggle or a dance, depending on your level of skill. In this exercise in group dynamics, you will learn the ‘Basic 3’ elements of survival, and have a lot of fun doing it.
Each member of your group is an integral part of the whole, and that’s what Puzzle Quest is all about! Teams will travel throughout the property solving clues to obtain puzzle pieces. Once each team has acquired all their pieces, all teams work together to complete the puzzle.
If you loved treasure hunting as a kid, you’ll love it even more now! Teams need to work together solving clues to locate the treasure. We include brain teasers, puzzles, riddles, and more! It’s up to the teams to use each member’s strengths.
THROWBACK PHOTO HUNT
The objective is for each team to obtain pictures of themselves with an instant camera, in specific locations directed by the clues given. Each photo has a set of criteria which they will be scored on at the end.
SELFIE SCAVENGER HUNT
Take great team pictures all a while finding iconic viewpoints of the grounds.
