So, get up! It’s time to leave the comfort of your home, get off the couch, and turn off the TV, the Great Outdoors awaits!
Your mission is to help Dr. Zoolittle prepare for his time in the Great Outdoors by collecting items and with your friends’ help, you will receive new ready-for-adventure animals for your Zoo!
The Great Outdoors Seasonal works very similar to the past Spring Seasonal celebration. Simply log into Zoo and you’ll find a new friend waiting for you at the dock, ready to welcome the adventures of camping and hiking. Click on the animal to bring up the Great Outdoors menu.
From there, you can choose an animal to help, collect items, and ask friends to help you ready all your animals for a cozy night under a blanket of stars.
How the Great Outdoors works in Zoo World:
As with the Spring Seasonal, you will need to collect special items to help Dr. Zoolittle and these critters. These items are Binoculars, Lanterns, Thermoses, Backpacks, and Camping Tents. Each of these can be collected in different ways:
- Collect Camping Tents from the feed.
- Collect Binoculars, Lanterns, and Thermoses through gifting with friends.
- Collect Backpacks by feeding treats to your animals.
You can post to the Facebook Feed asking for help with the Camping Tents, Binoculars, Lanterns and Thermoses up to 4 times per day, or once every six hours. Likewise, you can post Camping Tents to the feed to help your friends once every six hours, and 10 friends can collect a tent from each post. Each of these items can also be purchased with WLP, if you wish.
Make sure to take the time to Check-in:
Are you short on a couple items to help your animal? Clicking on this heart “checks in,” and you can do this once every five minutes (and even earn XP!). For every three check-ins you complete, you will be able to choose one free Great Outdoors item of your choice!
How to get Backpacks:
Earn Backpacks by feeding any of your treats in Zoo World to your animals. That’s right! All treats work to snag you some handy backpacks!
The item will appear when you collect unbroken hearts, not while feeding. You can collect up to 10 Backpacks per day. You get one Backpack after collecting 10 unbroken hearts.
Asking for Helping Hands:
Once you have enough of each item, you’re almost done helping Dr. Zoolittle and will soon meet a new animal! You just need a couple helping hands from your friends to complete the mission. Click “Ask Friends” to post your request to your Facebook feed. From there, your ZooMates can help you directly or you can choose to purchase them for one WLP each.
Rewards and Upgrades:
Every animal you meet will stay in your Zoo to help you along your adventure in nature!
All the basic animals are Rare and you will receive 2 of every animal you complete. Once completed, you will have the option to upgrade both to Ultra Rares. Upgrading your Rares costs 20 WLP total.
Getting Started for the Great Outdoors:
Two animals are unlock-able right away and ready for you to start collecting items for:
As with past seasonals, 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 over the coarse of the promotion, but you will need the previous ones finished before working on the next.
The Great Outdoors Seasonal will end on Monday, June 13th. That’s almost a month for your camping adventure to make everlasting memories and add new animals to your Zoo! Check back here on the blog for more updates, announcements, and giveaways that can help your entire Zoo be ready for an adventure in the Great Outdoors!
