Dr. Zoo Little’s Mysterious Halloween Adventure

Dr. Zoo Little needs your help! While travelling the world, Dr. Zoo Little met a mysterious Cat who told him of the legendary Creature of Halloween, a mysterious animal that only makes appearances at great Halloween Carnivals.  It’s up to you and your friends to put together the greatest Halloween Carnival ever to summon this mysterious and spooky guest to your Zoo!

Starting on October 28th, Dr. Zoo Little will set off on his Halloween Adventure. Who knows what frightful creatures and thrilling finds he’ll come across along the way?

Read on to discover more about this spook-tacular Halloween celebration!


Dr. Zoo Little’s Halloween Adventure is a new kind of seasonal celebration!  Be sure to read thoroughly to get all the details on the new seasonal format.  We’ve marked new information with “NEW!” to make sure you don’t miss any important changes!

The Big Picture:

There are two parts to Dr. Zoo Little’s Halloween Adventure.  The first part – inviting Carnival guests to your Zoo – is pretty familiar, as it’s largely the same as previous seasonals.  The second part – constructing a Halloween Carnival building – is new, and 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 Halloween Carnival festivities.  Click on the animal to bring up the Halloween Adventure menu.

Halloween Adventure 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 mysterious guests to your Zoo!

NEW! The Halloween Carnival 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 Halloween Adventure story.  View the story panels you’ve unlocked so far by clicking the “View Story” button in the Halloween Adventure Menu.

NEW! Have questions about how to complete the seasonal?  Click on the new “How To” button in the Halloween Adventure Menu for an overview of how to complete the seasonal.

Inviting Animal Guests:

Every 3 days, new animal Carnival guests will be unlocked for you to help!  There are a total of 7 guests in this year’s Halloween 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 carnival animal before preparing the next. This way, all the animals will be more than ready for the Halloween Carnival!

NEW! The Carnival guests will help you complete a special creepy Halloween buildable to attract the legendary Creature of Halloween 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 spooky Carnival guests to your Zoo.  These items are Carnival Tickets, Tent Frames, Tent Fabric, Tricks, and Treats.  Each of these can be collected in different ways, and each animal requires a different number of each material.

Collect Carnival Tickets, Tent Frames, and Tent Fabric 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 Carnival Tickets, Tent Frames, and Tent Fabric from the Free Gifts page to help them prepare their own Carnivals, too!  A player can send one request to a friend each day.

Collect Tricks and Treats by visiting your friends’ zoos.

  • NEW! Now you can go trick-or-treating in your friends’ Zoos!  Dress up in your most bewitching costume and head on over to your friends’ zoos to earn the items you need.  Click on the Halloween Carnival boat dock in your friends’ zoos for a chance to collect a Treat or Trick.
  • There’s a greater chance of getting a Treat, but don’t get discouraged if you receive a Trick.  It’s all part of the fun and Halloween mystery!
  • 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.

NEW! 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 Halloween Carnival 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:

Are you short on a few items to invite your Halloween guests?  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 Halloween Adventure 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 20 WLP total.

If you decide not to upgrade right away, don’t worry! You can upgrade your Rare Carnival guests to Ultra-Rares at any time during the promotion by clicking on the Rare in your Zoo.  The pop-up will have a button that allows you to upgrade the Rare for the same price of 20 WLP.  Once the promotion ends, you will no longer be able to upgrade your Rares to Ultra-Rares.

NEW! Note: You will be able to feed, collect hearts from, and breed Carnival guests only AFTER the seasonal ends.

NEW! Upgrading your Rares to Ultra-Rares has an additional advantage in this Halloween seasonal!  As you’ll read below, your Carnival guests are busy at work making materials for you to complete your Halloween Carnival buildable.  Ultra-Rare Carnival guests make buildable materials 25% faster than their Rare counterparts! That means that while the Mystical Cat may give you a Black Tourmaline every 8 hours, the Fortune-Telling Cat will give you a Black Tourmaline every 6 hours!  Speed up your Carnival completion by upgrading your Carnival guests to Ultra-Rares!

How to complete your Halloween Carnival Buildable:

NEW! The first time you open the Halloween Adventure Menu, you will receive the Halloween Carnival Frame.  A Halloween Carnival isn’t complete with just guests; you’ll need something much more spectacular to attract the Creature of Halloween!  You’ll be asked to place the base in your Zoo after you close the menu.

NEW! Your Carnival guests bring more than just spooky fun into your Zoo this time around!  Each Carnival guest will make a special material that you need to complete the Halloween Carnival 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:

  • Black Tourmaline – Get from the Mystical Cat and the Fortune-Telling Cat!
  • Ivory Keys – Get from the Skeletone Turtle and the Xylobones Turtle!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 10/30!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 10/30!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 11/02!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 11/02!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 11/05!

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 Carnival buildable.  When the buildable is completed, the Creature of Halloween may appear!

NEW! Halloween Carnival Buildable Menu:

Click on the Halloween Carnival Frame to open the Halloween Carnival 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.  Watch the mystery of the Creature of Halloween unravel as you get closer to completing your buildable!

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

NEW! Once you’ve finished putting together the most lavish, scary, and spirited Halloween Carnival, complete with the Carnival building and all the guests properly invited, the Creature of Halloween will be so impressed that it’ll choose your Zoo to reveal its secret identity. But that’s not the final surprise! The Creature of Halloween is an extra-special Ultra Rare animal you get to keep in your Zoo forever as a souvenir of when you completed Dr.Zoo Little’s 2011 Halloween Adventure.

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 Creature of Halloween to keep. To find out what the creature is, start the adventure!

Getting Started for Dr. Zoo Little’s Halloween Adventure:

Two animals are unlocked right away and ready for you to start collecting items for:
