This Holiday 2014 seasonal gets started today, so get ready for a special holiday gathering!

Read on to discover more about this Holiday 2014 adventure! Don’t forget upon completing the seasonal, refresh your game to see the final Ultra Rare animal and place from your Storage.

Similar to previous seasonal, there are two parts to this Holiday 2014 seasonal. The first part is inviting guests to your Zoo. The second part – constructing the Holiday Town buildable– will give you a free Ultra-Rare animal to stay in your Zoo when you complete it!

Getting Ready:

When you log into your Zoo, you’ll find a new friend waiting for you at the dock, ready to start the Holiday 2014 seasonal. Click on the animal to bring up the Holiday 2014 menu.

US Tour Dock

Holiday 2014 Menu:

From here, you can see what animal guests have been unlocked, choose an animal to help, collect items, and ask friends to help invite these Holiday 2014 guests to your Zoo!

US Tour Seasonal Menu

The Holiday 2014 seasonal has a story to tell! Each time you invite a new guest to your Zoo, you’ll unlock a new part of Dr. Zoo Little’s story. View the story panels you’ve unlocked so far by clicking the “View Story” button in the Holiday 2014 menu.

Have questions about how to complete the seasonal? Just click on the “How To” button in the Holiday 2014 Menu for an overview of how to complete the seasonal.

Use the countdown timer so you can see exactly how much time is left for the seasonal. Initially, the timer will show how many days are left. When there are only 2 days left, the timer will start to countdown in hours, minutes, and seconds.

Inviting Animal Guests:

Every 3 days, new Holiday 2014 guests will be unlocked for you to help! There are a total of 7 guests in this Holiday 2014 seasonal. As with past celebrations, you will need to help the first animal to get the second, and then help the second animal before getting the third, and so forth. New animals will unlock every three days, but you will need to invite the previous animal before preparing the next.

The Holiday 2014 guests will help you complete the f buildable to attract the special guest to your Zoo! Read more below to find out how to get this special Ultra-Rare guest to appear in your Zoo!

You will need to collect special items to invite these guests to your Zoo. These items are the Holiday Flower, Twinkling Lantern, Chocolate Coin, Sparkly Ornament, Christmas Stocking, Kwanzaa Candle, and Dreidel. Each of these can be collected in different ways, and each animal requires a different number of each material.

Collect the 2 seasonal items, the Kwanzaa Fruit Basket and Yule Log from correctly answering the Daily Quiz.

You will have a random but equal chance of collecting either of these 2 items this way.

Collect the Strawberry Santa, Christmas Tree Cupcake, and Hanukkah Donut through gifting with friends or feed posts.

  • You can post to the Facebook feed asking for help 4 times per day per item, or once every 6 hours.
  • Your friend can only click once on each post to help. They will receive an item themselves for helping!
  • Feed posts expire after 24 hours, so act quickly!
  • You can send your friends free Strawberry Santa, Christmas Tree Cupcake, and Hanukkah Donut from the Free Gifts page to help them prepare their own Holiday 2014 adventure, too! A player can send one request to a friend each day.

Collect the Kwanzaa Fruit Basket and Yule Log by visiting your friends’ zoos.

  • Click on the boat dock in your friends’ zoos for a chance to collect a Kwanzaa Fruit Basket or Yule Log .
  • There’s a greater chance of getting the Kwanzaa Fruit Basket, but don’t get discouraged if you receive the Yule Log . It’s all part of the fun!
  • You can collect from the same friend once every day. You’ll receive one item per visit. A countdown timer will show when the 24 hours are up and you can visit that friend again.

Once you have enough items, click on the “Complete” button to invite the guest into your Zoo. You no longer have to wait for 10 friends to help you invite guests into your Zoo. Congratulations, you’ve invited your first guest! Your Holiday 2014 seasonal is well under way.

If the button is gray, that means that either you do not have enough items to invite the guest yet, or the animal is still locked.

Make sure to take the time to Check-in:

US Tour Choose Reward

Are you short on a few items to invite to your Holiday 2014  adventure? Click on the dock to “check-in” every five minutes (and even earn XP)! For every 3 check-ins you complete, you will receive one free Holiday 2014 item of your choice!

Rewards and Upgrades:

You will receive two (2) of every animal you invite into your Zoo to place on your island. All the basic animals are Rare. When you invite a new guest into your Zoo, you will have the option to upgrade your Rare animal to an Ultra Rare. Upgrading your pair of animals will cost Wildlife Points.

US Tour Upgrade

If you decide not to upgrade right away, don’t worry! You can upgrade your Rare Holiday 2014 guests to Ultra-Rares at any time during the promotion by clicking on the animal in your Zoo. The pop-up will have a button that allows you to upgrade. Once the promotion ends, you will no longer be able to upgrade your Rares to Ultra-Rares.

Note: You will be able to feed, collect hearts from, and breed Holiday 2014 guests only AFTER the seasonal ends (i.e. when auto-trade begins).

Upgrading your Rares to Ultra-Rares has an additional advantage! As you’ll read below, your Holiday 2014 guests are busy at work making materials for you to complete your Holiday Town buildable. Ultra-Rare Holiday 2014 guests make buildable materials 25% faster than their Rare counterparts! Instead of getting materials from the Holiday Jellyfish every 6 hours, your Ultra-Rare will give you one every 4 hours! Speed up your  Holiday 2014 completion by upgrading your Rare guests to Ultra-Rares!

How to Complete Your Holiday 2014 Buildable:

The first time you open the Holiday 2014 Menu, you will receive the Holiday Town frame. An adventure like this isn’t complete with just guests; you’ll need something much more festive to attract the special guest! You’ll be asked to place the base in your Zoo after you close the menu.

Your Holiday 2014 guests bring more than just fun into your Zoo this time around! Each guest will make a special material that you need to complete the Holiday Town buildable.  It takes each guest a different amount of time to make their materials; you’ll notice that each animal has a timer letting you know how long until its item is ready to collect.

Here are all the items you’ll be collecting from your guests:

  • Holiday Flower – Get from the Holiday Jellyfish and Gifting Octopus
  • Twinkling Lantern – Get from the Holiday Pika and Caroling Squirrel
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 12/15!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 12/18!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 12/21!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 12/24!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 12/27!

Reminder: Ultra-Rare guests produce materials 25% faster than the Rare guests! Upgrade your guests to complete your buildable more quickly!

When the animal is ready to be collected, the readied material will glow above its head. Click to accept the item. Invite all the guests into your Zoo to collect all the materials you need to complete your Holiday 2014 seasonal. When the buildable is completed, the Holiday 2014 guest will appear!

Under the Holiday 2014 Menu:

Click on the Holiday Town Frame to open the Holiday Town Buildable Menu.

US Tour Buildable Menu

Here, you can see what stage your buildable has been completed to and the number of materials you need to reach the next stage, as well as tips as to which guests will give you what materials.

Feeling impatient? You can buy buildable materials for WLP to speed up the completion of your Holiday Town buildable!

Once you’ve finished putting together the Holiday 2014 animals, complete with the Holiday Town buildable and all the guests properly invited, the special guest will be so impressed that it’ll choose your Zoo to reveal its secret identity. But that’s not the final surprise! The mystery guest is an extra-special Ultra Rare animal you get to keep in your Zoo forever as a souvenir when you complete Dr. Zoo Little’s Holiday 2014 Seasonal! Remember to refresh upon completion to see the new Ultra Rare completion animal!

This means that if you decide not to upgrade any of your animals for WLP, you can still work hard, complete the seasonal, and get a free Ultra Rare to keep. To find out what that is, start the adventure!

Getting Started for the Holiday 2014 seasonal:

For this seasonal we will have 2 animals are unlocked right away pictured next to their Ultra Rare upgrade counterparts.  These are ready for you to start collecting items for:

The Oktoberfest seasonal has a story to tell! Each time you invite a new guest to your Zoo, you’ll unlock a new part of Dr. Zoo Little’s story. View the story panels you’ve unlocked so far by clicking the “View Story” button in the Oktoberfest menu.

Have questions about how to complete the seasonal? Just click on the “How To” button in the Oktoberfest Menu for an overview of how to complete the seasonal.

Use the countdown timer so you can see exactly how much time is left for the seasonal. Initially, the timer will show how many days are left. When there are only 2 days left, the timer will start to countdown in hours, minutes, and seconds.

Inviting Animal Guests:

Every 3 days, new Oktoberfest guests will be unlocked for you to help! There are a total of 7 guests in this Oktoberfest seasonal. As with past celebrations, you will need to help the first animal to get the second, and then help the second animal before getting the third, and so forth. New animals will unlock every three days, but you will need to invite the previous animal before preparing the next.

The Oktoberfest guests will help you complete the Cologne Cathedral buildable to attract the special guest to your Zoo! Read more below to find out how to get this special Ultra-Rare guest to appear in your Zoo!

You will need to collect special items to invite these guests to your Zoo. These items are the Blue and White Flag, Blue and White Balloon, Yodeler Hat, Bavaria Garland, Oktoberfest Barrel, Pretzel Eyeglass, and Oktoberfest Gingerbread. Each of these can be collected in different ways, and each animal requires a different number of each material.

Collect the 2 seasonal items, the Root Beer and Bratwurst from correctly answering the Daily Quiz.

You will have a random but equal chance of collecting either of these 2 items this way.

Collect the Schnitzel, Bretzel, and Black Forest Cherry Cake through gifting with friends or feed posts.

  • You can post to the Facebook feed asking for help 4 times per day per item, or once every 6 hours.
  • Your friend can only click once on each post to help. They will receive an item themselves for helping!
  • Feed posts expire after 24 hours, so act quickly!
  • You can send your friends free Schnitzel, Bretzel, and Black Forest Cherry Cake from the Free Gifts page to help them prepare their own Oktoberfest adventure, too! A player can send one request to a friend each day.

Collect the Root Beer and Bratwurst by visiting your friends’ zoos.

  • Click on the boat dock in your friends’ zoos for a chance to collect a Root Beer or Bratwurst.
  • There’s a greater chance of getting the Root Beer, but don’t get discouraged if you receive the Bratwurst. It’s all part of the fun!
  • You can collect from the same friend once every day. You’ll receive one item per visit. A countdown timer will show when the 24 hours are up and you can visit that friend again.

Once you have enough items, click on the “Complete” button to invite the guest into your Zoo. You no longer have to wait for 10 friends to help you invite guests into your Zoo. Congratulations, you’ve invited your first guest! Your Oktoberfest seasonal is well under way.

If the button is gray, that means that either you do not have enough items to invite the guest yet, or the animal is still locked.

Make sure to take the time to Check-in:

Oktoberfest Choose Reward

Are you short on a few items to invite to your Oktoberfest adventure? Click on the dock to “check-in” every five minutes (and even earn XP)! For every 3 check-ins you complete, you will receive one free Oktoberfest item of your choice!

Rewards and Upgrades:

You will receive two (2) of every animal you invite into your Zoo to place on your island. All the basic animals are Rare. When you invite a new guest into your Zoo, you will have the option to upgrade your Rare animal to an Ultra Rare. Upgrading your pair of animals will cost Wildlife Points.

Oktoberfest Upgrade

If you decide not to upgrade right away, don’t worry! You can upgrade your Rare Oktoberfest guests to Ultra-Rares at any time during the promotion by clicking on the animal in your Zoo. The pop-up will have a button that allows you to upgrade. Once the promotion ends, you will no longer be able to upgrade your Rares to Ultra-Rares.

Note: You will be able to feed, collect hearts from, and breed Oktoberfest guests only AFTER the seasonal ends (i.e. when auto-trade begins).

Upgrading your Rares to Ultra-Rares has an additional advantage! As you’ll read below, your Oktoberfest guests are busy at work making materials for you to complete your Cologne Cathedral buildable. Ultra-Rare Oktoberfest guests make buildable materials 25% faster than their Rare counterparts! Instead of getting materials from the Harvest Mouse every 6 hours, your Ultra-Rare will give you one every 4 hours! Speed up your  Oktoberfest completion by upgrading your Rare guests to Ultra-Rares!

How to Complete Your Cologne Cathedral Buildable:

The first time you open the Oktoberfest Menu, you will receive the Cologne Cathedral frame. An adventure like this isn’t complete with just guests; you’ll need something much more festive to attract the special guest! You’ll be asked to place the base in your Zoo after you close the menu.

Your Oktoberfest guests bring more than just fun into your Zoo this time around! Each guest will make a special material that you need to complete the Cologne Cathedral buildable.  It takes each guest a different amount of time to make their materials; you’ll notice that each animal has a timer letting you know how long until its item is ready to collect.

Here are all the items you’ll be collecting from your guests:

  • Blue and White Flag– Get from the Harvest Mouse and Grey Red-backed Vole
  • Blue and White Balloon– Get from the West European Hedgehog and European Hare
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 9/27!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 9/29!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 10/1!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 10/3!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 10/5!

Reminder: Ultra-Rare guests produce materials 25% faster than the Rare guests! Upgrade your guests to complete your buildable more quickly!

When the animal is ready to be collected, the readied material will glow above its head. Click to accept the item. Invite all the guests into your Zoo to collect all the materials you need to complete your Oktoberfest seasonal. When the buildable is completed, the Oktoberfest guest will appear!

Under the Oktoberfest Menu:

Click on the Cologne Cathedral Frame to open the Cologne Cathedral Buildable Menu.

Oktober Buildable

Here, you can see what stage your buildable has been completed to and the number of materials you need to reach the next stage, as well as tips as to which guests will give you what materials.

Feeling impatient? You can buy buildable materials for WLP to speed up the completion of your Cologne Cathedral buildable!

Once you’ve finished putting together the Oktoberfest animals, complete with the Cologne Cathedral buildable and all the guests properly invited, the special guest will be so impressed that it’ll choose your Zoo to reveal its secret identity. But that’s not the final surprise! The mystery guest is an extra-special Ultra Rare animal you get to keep in your Zoo forever as a souvenir when you complete Dr. Zoo Little’s 2014 Oktoberfest Seasonal! Remember to refresh upon completion to see the new Ultra Rare completion animal!

This means that if you decide not to upgrade any of your animals for WLP, you can still work hard, complete the seasonal, and get a free Ultra Rare to keep. To find out what that is, start the adventure!

Getting Started for the Oktoberfest seasonal:

For this seasonal we will have 2 animals are unlocked right away pictured next to their Ultra Rare upgrade counterparts.  These are ready for you to start collecting items for:

  • Harvest Mouse: Grey Red-backed Vole
