Spring Seasonal is here! Flowers, Garden Gnomes and Animals

Title of image

Can you smell it? Take a deep breath in and experience the refreshing Spring air.

 The sun is starting to shine and the flowers are ready to bloom.

 Following suit with Mother Nature, Zoo World has a new Seasonal ready to burst open as well.

Your mission is to get the animals ready for Springtime by collecting items and with your friends’ help, you’ll receive  new and ready-for-the-sun species for your Zoo!

Getting Ready:

The Spring Seasonal works very similar to the past April Fools’ Day celebrations. Simply log into Zoo and you’ll find a new friend waiting for you at the dock, ready to welcome the Springtime sun and fun. Click on the animal to bring up the Spring menu.

From there, you can choose an animal to help, collect items, and ask friends to help you ready all your animals for a warmer climate.

How Spring works in Zoo World:

As with April Fool’s Day, you will need to collect special items to help the new animals. These items are Garden Rakes, Wheelbarrows, Wooden Buckets, Spring Gnomes, and Flower Baskets. Each of these can be collected in different ways:
  • Collect Flower Baskets from the feed.
  • Collect Garden Rakes, Wheelbarrows and Wooden Bucketsthrough gifting with friends.
  • Collect Spring Gnomes by feeding treats to your animals.
You can post to the Facebook Feed asking for help with the Flower Baskets, Garden Rakes, Wheelbarrows, and Wooden Buckets up to 4 times per day, or once every six hours. Likewise, you can post Flower Baskets to the feed to help your friends once every six hours, and 10 friends can collect the blooming beauties 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 Spring item of your choice!

How to get Spring Gnomes:

Earn Spring Gnomes by feeding any of your treats in Zoo World to your animals. You can choose between a 10-minute Apple or the two-day Ice Cream Cone, they all work to snag you some adorable gnomes!
The item will appear when you collect unbroken hearts, not while feeding. You can collect up to 10 Spring Gnomes per day. You get one Spring Gnome after collecting 10 unbroken hearts.

Asking for Helping Hands:

Once you have enough of each item, you’re almost done with preparing your animal for Springtime. 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 complete stays at your Zoo. I can already feel the sunshine get brighter in Zoo World!
All the basic animals are Rare and you will receive 1 of every animal you complete, not a pair. Once completed, you will have the option of upgrading it to an Ultra Rare. Upgrading your Rare costs 15 WLP total.
If you decided not to upgrade, but change your mind later on, don’t worry! You can upgrade to an Ultra Rare at any time during the promotion by clicking on the Rare in your zoo. This will prompt a pop-up that gives you the option to upgrade it for the same price. Once the promotion ends, your species are set and can no longer be upgraded.

Getting Started for Spring:

Two animals are unlock-able right away and ready for you to start collecting items for:

  • Pajama Bear 
  • Young Lamb 
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 every three days, but you will need the previous ones finished before working on the next.
The Spring seasonal ends April 29th at Noon PST. Check back here on the blog for more updates, announcements, and giveaways that can help your entire Zoo be ready for Spring!
