Dr. Zoolittle beckons to the call of new sights and sounds of the United States! Ready for his newest patriotic adventure, he hits the open road with good friends!

This 2014 Tour the US seasonal gets started today, so get ready for the tour of the 50 states!

Read on to discover more about this Tour the US 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 Tour the US seasonal. The first part is inviting guests to your Zoo. The second part – constructing the Mount Rushmore 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 Tour the US seasonal. Click on the animal to bring up the Tour the US menu.

US Tour Dock

Tour the US 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 Tour the US guests to your Zoo!

US Tour Seasonal Menu

The Tour the US 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 Tour the US menu.

Have questions about how to complete the seasonal? Just click on the “How To” button in the Tour the US 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 Tour the US guests will be unlocked for you to help! There are a total of 7 guests in this Tour the US 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 Tour the US guests will help you complete the Mount Rushmore 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 Route 66 Sign, Cloud Gate, Hollywood Sign, Delicate Arch, Space Needle, Las Vegas Sign, and Gateway Arch. 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 Reuben Sandwich and Cinnamon Roll 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 Key Lime Pie, Jambalaya, and Nachos 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 Key Lime Pie, Jambalaya, and Nachos from the Free Gifts page to help them prepare their own Tour the US adventure, too! A player can send one request to a friend each day.

Collect the Reuben Sandwich and Cinnamon Roll by visiting your friends’ zoos.

  • Click on the boat dock in your friends’ zoos for a chance to collect a Reuben Sandwich or Cinnamon Roll.
  • There’s a greater chance of getting the Reuben Sandwich, but don’t get discouraged if you receive the Cinnamon Roll. 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 Tour the US 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 Tour the US  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 Tour the US 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 Tour the US 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 Tour the US 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 Tour the US guests are busy at work making materials for you to complete your Mount Rushmore buildable. Ultra-Rare Tour the US guests make buildable materials 25% faster than their Rare counterparts! Instead of getting materials from the Greater Prairie Chicken every 6 hours, your Ultra-Rare will give you one every 4 hours! Speed up your  Tour the US completion by upgrading your Rare guests to Ultra-Rares!

How to Complete Your Tour the US Buildable:

The first time you open the Tour the US Menu, you will receive the Mount Rushmore 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 Tour the US 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 Mount Rushmore 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:

  • Route 66 Sign – Get from the Greater Prairie Chicken and Ferruginous Hawk
  • Cloud Gate – Get from the Gray Tree Frog and Olive Ridley Sea Turtle
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 11/16!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 11/19!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 11/22!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 11/25!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 11/28!

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 Tour the US seasonal. When the buildable is completed, the Tour the US guest will appear!

Under the Tour the US Menu:

Click on the Mount Rushmore Frame to open the Mount Rushmore 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 Mount Rushmore buildable!

Once you’ve finished putting together the Tour the USanimals, complete with the Mount Rushmore 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 Tour the US 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!
