Summer Carnival Event 2016The Carnival has returned to town! Get ready to play some games, help some Bushwhackian residents and win carnival tokens which you can exchange for cool prizes at the Carnival Event Vendor!
The Carnival Games:
A staple of any summer carnival or fair, are those devilish carnival games. There are four different games which will unlock over the course of the event and they include "Balloon Popper," "Whack-A-Mole," "Baseball Throw," and "Duck Shoot." Don't worry, there's no skill involved with these games, you play them automatically when you interact with them.
- It costs 4 carnival tickets to play each game, and you can whack those tickets out of the bushes, or purchase them from Timmy in the Event area for Bush Bucks (30 Salvaged Tickets for 30 Bush Bucks)
- You receive Carnival Tokens based on how well you do. Now, we're not saying they're rigged in the Carnival's favour or anything, but you'll definitely want to ask your friends to help you rig these games to help you! (Platforms without Friend functionality are balanced accordingly.)
To get started, the Balloon Popper game is unlocked! As well, it seems William needs your help to satisfy his sweet-tooth!
The Pandaclaw was wandering around here somewhere....build the teleporter and complete all the quests and get your very own!
The dunk tank makes a triumphant return this year! Can you dunk all 8 helpless Bushwhackian residents? This year, NPCs you haven't dunked yet will have a yellow exclamation mark above their heads, to let you know you still need to send them plunging into the icy waters of the tank! Help them all cool off!
New for 2016
We've added 6 new quest to the event! Look for them to start as it unfolds! Did you know that Pete the Carney (the clown posted at the entrance to the event zone, had a brother?
And all that bush whacking must make you hot. I wonder how you could cool down....
