Zoey researches around the national park, talks to the camping club about Native Americans, goes to the library to learn about the park and takes a quiz about a national park. It was also Nickelodeon's best performance for a series premiere (live action or animation) in almost eight years.
Jack De Vries of IGN gave the game a 3.5/10 and criticized the game's boring gameplay, bland music and sound, and awkward controls. The premiere of the episode "Goodbye Zoey" was the highest-rated live-action show ever on Nickelodeon, with over 7.3 million viewers.
Players can choose to play mini-games freely in the main menu.
Game Zone awarded the game 4 out of 10, stating that the game was either "boring, frustrating, just plain unfun, or some combination of all three." Field Trip Fiasco is about Zoey and her friends taking a field trip to a park.
jkdmedia reviewed the game for Game Zone on October 8, 2007 and gave the game a 2.8. The series finale "Chasing Zoey" was the highest-rated show on all of television for all kid demos, including teens 12-17, beating out American Idol.
