Village Quest


Village Quest is designed for Grades 6-12, and consists of a 90 minute role-playing-game adventure in our Crossroads Village.

Travel back in time and talk with Villagers to gather information about the life a person from the past. But you have to hurry! The Paradox that lets you time travel is not stable, and if your team can’t gather data, document sources, and craft the narrative of your person’s life, their story will be lost forever!

Village Quest is $6/student.

Group Size:

80 students max per Quest, divided into teams of 8 students max.

Requires a 1:8 chaperone ratio.

There is no charge for teachers and school staff to attend Field Trips at Old World Wisconsin. Parent chaperones may attend with a cost of $15 each. Each chaperone must be approved for attendance by the teacher.

To Book Your Field Trip, please complete the Field Trip Reservation Form
