Come Play with Us! Frolic in the Garden through six playful stations and find Stickman and his friends in this special edition of Stickman Kid Quest, a themed scavenger hunt that asks families to search for six clues.

Here’s How it Works

  1. To get started, just ask for a Kid Quest and a map at the admissions desk in the Robins Visitors Center.
  2. Follow the directions to all six clues and record your answers on the brochure.
  3. If you find all six clues, you can get a prize by showing your completed Kid Quest to an Admissions Staff member.
