Magic Kingdom Archives Adventureland Challenge
Unfortunately, the Magic Kingdom discontinued the
Adventureland Challenge as of the Spring 2000.
The Adventureland Challenge is played several times a day in Adventureland at the Magic Kingdom. The first and last games are usually the shorter version. Check your MK Guidebook for times. There are usually 5 or 6 different start times each day. Meet at the Adventureland Challenge sign near the entrance to what used to be the Tiki Birds. The Game takes approximately 20 minutes and is a great way to have fun with your group (but you can also play it alone). To begin the game, a CM explains to you that the Golden Idol Treasure is missing. You will receive a map which has the first clue. Figure out what the clue says, go to that location and get the necessary information (this part is important!). You will pick up your next clue at this point. Be sure to write down all the information you are asked to obtain! After you receive all the clues, turn them over for a puzzle of where the Golden Idol is located. Search the location and be the first group to grab the Golden Idol and return it to the Starting Point and the CM. He/She will ask you for the information you were to obtain! To the winning team that finds the Golden Idol AND can answer all the questions correctly, goes an Adventureland Challenge Certificate and a prize. The prize could be free beverages, a pass to go to the front of any line, or other similar item. There is also a short version of the game. The CM will give you only one or two clues about where the Golden Idol is located and takes only about 5 minutes to play. The 4 of us (3 adults and 1 teen) played this 2/97 and had a tremendous amount of fun. I highly recommend it to everyone of all ages!
- Don't be afraid to ask Cast Members for help.
- Bring a pen with you (You will be required to write something down).
- Don't let the Sheriff of Nottingham trick you 🙂
"I did want to tell you we played the Adventureland Challenge twice. The first time on Saturday, our first day at the MK, it was the full-blown version where you run back and forth and pick up the cards and have to answer the question, and find the statue. They took all us 'losers' on a priority seating at Jungle Cruise (as long as we all held up our forefinger and thumb in the shape of an 'L' to show everyone we were losers!). The last day we were there I played 'solo' again. This time they only had one question on the map and all you had to do was find the statue (by the way, apparently a new statue since someone stole the old one). It was too simple, I found it is less than two minutes!!! It was fun and I've been highly recommending it to anyone who asks for something 'different' to do at the MK." (Ken, 10/97)
