Christmas 2015 101:Exotic Petting Zoo & Reindeer Burger Truck

FYI: If you’re looking for information on the issue for the New Weekly Challenge and the Christmas Trees Slightly Irregular, go to the post below…

Hey there Christmas Hams!

With all the cool new stuff that just hit our silly lil games for Act 2, I figured it may be helpful to give you an idea of just how much help and beneficial upgrading some of the New “Locations” will be to you.

Exotic Petting Zoo Reinder Burger Truck

Let’s dive on in and take a look at the Upgrades and tasks for the Exotic Petting Zoo & Reindeer Burger Truck


KNOWN “ISSUES”

Here is a quick look at the main concerns I was seeing on these Attractions.

  1. If you get to the Tasks and the “DO IT” option doesn’t show up, force close & restart your device. This should help resolve it.
  2. Another thing to note, when you are sending MORE Characters on a task than what is needed… do NOT collect on the Task until every single one of those Characters are done and you have the Thumbs Up to clear them. The reason for this is once you hit that amount, the Task is done and closes out. (So if it says 3 and you send 6, wait until all 6 are done as it will clear out as soon as the 3 are met.) So if you clear the Task BEFORE the “extras” are done, you will not get paid out for the Tasks as it seems to cancel it right away. (At least that is what I noticed in my game.)

For more information on the Event, go to the Event Page HERE.

For more information on Act 2 Basics, go the the Rundown post HERE

For more information on the Main Questline for Act 2, go HERE


HOW CAN I FIND THE ATTRACTIONS ONCE BUILT?

In order to gain access to any Attraction, you can use your Event Menu to go directly to their locations (just like the Snowman & Gingerbread House). Just tap on the Trophy Icon in the Lower Right Area of your game screen…

Christmas 2015 Event Menu Icon

Then locate the House w/Magnifying Glass Icon Tab and open it…

Christmas 2015 Event Menu Find Attraction Icon

Find the “Attraction” you want to locate and tap on “GO TO”. You will then be taken to that Attraction.

 

Now on to the fun stuffs. 🙂



EXOTIC PETTING ZOO

Exotic Petting Zoo

Building: Exotic Petting Zoo
Size:  
10X10
Build Time: 
Instant
Conform-O-Meter:
  Vanity +50
Placement:  Grass/Pavement/Beach/Boardwalk/Boardwalk Edge/Pier/Pier Edge
Earns:  32 Tapped_Out_MistletoeMistletoe every 8hrs (once complete with Level 3)

The Questline to trigger the build for the Exotic Petting Zoo will start right at the beginning of Act 2. First you will need to have Lisa free to start the An Unwanted Kiss Task. Then once it is complete , you will need to have Homer free to start Once In Royal Quimby’s City Pt. 1. From there you will now start into the process of getting the Exotic Petting Zoo.  Once you complete Pt. 1, you will be prompted to start Building the Exotic Petting Zoo for FREE! Woohoo!

 


HOW DO I KNOW WHAT LEVEL I AM ON?

Once you locate and tap on the Exotic Pettting Zoo you will be able to see what Level you are currently on, the Tasks you have not got to yet greyed out with a lock on them, Tasks you completed with “Done” next to them, and the current Task available highlighted with “Do It” next to it. You can also see the Donut cost of speeding through it all and just leveling right up. I personally would suggest to avoid this. Not only does it cost you donuts, but you also lose out on possible extra Mistletoe from completing the tasks.

WHAT IS REQUIRED EACH LEVEL?

Let’s take a closer look at the individual requirements for the Exotic Petting Zoo that will take you through Leveling it up and gaining the much needed Mistletoe for Act 2. Keep in mind that every Task on each Level has to be completed in sequence. This means you have to finish the first Task in order to unlock the second one.

All together you can earn 3200 Tapped_Out_MistletoeMistletoe from just leveling up to Exotic Petting Zoo Level 3. My suggestion would be to send ALL Characters you can on each task to help get any extra Mistletoe possible.

Exotic Petting Zoo Animals

Completed Exotic Petting Zoo to Level 3: Earns 32 Tapped_Out_Mistletoe every 8hrs. You can also swap the image to the various 3 Levels.  The Zoo looks really funny with the “Exotic Animals” (Sheep- Fluffy Dragon, Reindeer- Peacock Deer, Skunk- North American Koala, Cat- Caticorn, & Pigeons- Pigeon King) outside of it. If you watch it for a bit, they move and do silly lil things.

 


ADDITIONAL ZOO EXPANSIONS

There are also 3 additional Premium Decorations for the Zoo.

pigofparadisepen_menuPig of Paradise Pen- 30 Donuts (complete with Pig, animation moves more when tapped)

woollymammothpen_menuWooly Mammoth Pen- 30 Donuts (complete with Elephant, animation moves more when tapped)

All 3 of these Expansions cracked me up. Again, the “Exotic” Animals just are hilarious to watch. It really was a riot to watch all 3 together with the Exotic Petting Zoo animated.

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT I LEVEL I AM ON?

Once you locate and tap on the Reindeer Burger Truck you will be able to see what Level you are currently on, the Tasks you have not got to yet greyed out with a lock on them, Tasks you completed with “Done” next to them, and the current Task available highlighted with “Do It” next to it.

There you have it. A way to earn at LEAST 6400Tapped_Out_Mistletoe Mistletoe for the Christmas 2015 Event just for leveling up two new locations for Act 2. Add to that the Tasks and the Questline completions and you can knock out a huge chunk of Material to get those Personal Prizes. Again, use ALL the Characters possible whenever you can so you get out of the location as much Mistletoe as you can before the Tasks go away and do NOT clear the Task until all of them are finished.

What do you think of the Exotic Petting Zoo? How far are you on it? Like the animations? Did you splurge on the additional 3 Zoo Expansions? How about the Reindeer Burger Truck? Have you placed it yet? What Level are you on? Let us know.

  6. Anyone else having trouble with the game not allowing more than 7 pessimists to engage in a 8 person task?

    • There are only 7 pessimists total in the entire game. You can’t send 8 people when you only have 7. 😊

      Like

    • Did you have 8 pessimists? Are there 8 pessimists in the list? I think one of the tasks I’m working on (not sure if it’s that one) requires two “sessions” to compete it because it requires more completions than it has characters allowed to do it. These events do that sometimes, intentionally.

  8. I sent dimwits to deliver reindeer wings and it gave me the berries but no credit towards the level up. Any thoughts? I had all 7 dimwits on task. I sent them on the task again just now but don’t want to waste the donuts to speed things up.

  9. Loving these two building ‘attractions’ if you will. Love the humour in them and just like them in general. I’ve started an ‘entertainment complex’ of the convention centre and petting zoo, and I’m also starting a ‘sports complex’ that houses my tap-ball stadium, ice rink (being a Canuck I couldn’t resist – I’ve been savouring this for 2 years now!), the apple cider stand amongst others. Will probably add the reindeer truck to the sports complex. Once that’s done, I just have to figure out my medical complex (need to find homes for everything). Merry Christmas to the three of you – I don’t comment a lot, but I wanted to thank you for all of your awesome work, long hours and everything you do for us. You’re not thanked often enough and you certainly deserve it. Here’s to an awesome 2016 TSTOAddicts!

  10. I hope we get an Uncle Moe’s façade some day, along with an Unkie Moe costume, and a full-blown event -even a short one- to go with them!

  11. why is crazy cat lady a brainiac?

    On another note, I bought all three zoo expansions, and I love them; they are hilarious! I do, however, find it difficult to place the pig pen because it faces diagonal while everything else is square. So if I were to do it again, I would probably just buy the wooly mammoth and the octopus horse.

  12. Handsome B. Wonderful

    I just got a warning that I’m at 5500 items and my game can become unstable. Is this something to ignore or be careful about? I play on a relatively new phone with lots of gbs free. I’m already getting texture glitches and small lapses but nothing out of the ordinary…yet.

  13. I think my main beef with building these attractions is the length of time for each step. Since it will take doing it 2x for most of the steps, having it go for 6 or 8 hours is a serious blunder on EA’s part as there is really nothing to do in the meantime to collect the required items to level up or quests for other characters not used in the levels of the attractions to gain mistletoe (besides tapping on the revelers, which rarely tells me when I’ve tapped them all unless I go to Krustyland or tap on the buildings to chug along for gaining more monorail tracks…EA also needs to have some way of trading tracks you don’t need for ones you do. I’ve got 70 curved and 50 s tracks just sitting there, never to be used, so it would be nice to be able to trade them in for straight track pieces). This event is, IMHO, quite boring and tedious and for part 2 to go on for 2 weeks is a bit much. They should really have more smaller quests (shorter amount of time) to give us more to do and make the event more than just scroll, scroll, scroll, tap, tap, tap, yawn, yawn, yawn.

  17. In my game, the task for Make Pessimists Predict a Reindeer Extinction Event says 0/8 not 0/5. Was there a typo in this post or is it a typo in the game? I won’t get to this task until 3pm EST, so I won’t know which one is right until then.

    Like

  18. I’d be more annoyed that you can’t complete the first stage of part 2 of the reindeer truck in one go, even if you have the related premium character, if I actually had that character. I also can’t complete the stage of the exotic petting zoo that I’m I’m in one go, because I don’t have the premium character for that either. Both of which are very inconvenient, because I’ll be driving to NYC when it’s time to send those characters on the tasks again to compete them, which means I’m gonna be pretty behind by tomorrow morning. 😦

    The one bright spot is that I hadn’t noticed that the irregular tree farm gave mistletoe, so I haven’t built it before ask if the comments came in about that bug. So, I escaped that problem! 🙂

  21. Laughing my way through this GAME. Interestingly, “Frink” is not a “Braniacs” , just as “Uter” is not a “Glutton” – perhaps EA wants us to purchase more Premium characters? But where or where are we going to get even a portion of the donuts needed to buy those Premiums? 😇😇😇
