Quick Tip: Don’t Spend Clams on the Water Park

Hello There Clammers!

Just popping in with a quick tip for you all.  DON’T SPEND CLAMS ON THE WATER PARK!  You can earn it for free via the Mystery box.

Here’s the deal:

After you complete the first part of the 4th of July questline (Where you build deep fried everything) Peter will prompt another quest.  It’ll look like this:

2014-07-04 02.32.44

 

Basically…purchase the mystery boxes for $2,000 and if you win 1 of each of the types of Fireworks you’ll unlock the water park for FREE!  Again that’s 1 each of the:

Pocket Firework, Pixie Firework, Sunburst Firework & Colassal Firework…and then you have to place them.

2014-07-04 06.41.55

Once place you’ll unlock the Water Park for free..HOWEVER it won’t appear in your inventory.  You have to go to the shopping cart and you’ll see an option for a free one.  Make sure you click on the one that says FREE otherwise you’ll be charged 120 clams for something that’s otherwise free for you!

2014-07-04 06.42.55

 

Pretty sweet little gift just for playing the mystery box huh?

What do YOU think of the free Water Park?  Have you been playing the Mystery Box?  Does this give you incentive to shell out those in-game dollars?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

  1. I spent everything i had on the fireworks. 4 pocket, 6 pixie, 8 sunburst, 1 white patriotic flower and 5,000 in free coins. I played the whole time and never got the last firework, so no water park for me. Not a fan of this game. Its like the 80’s cleveland, i had him down to one item and it just stopped giving it. I missed out on the water park and cleveland, not happy!

  2. Is anyone else trying to buy the patriot prize box and having a pop up of consuela saying there’s already a prize box waiting, and I click okay and it restarts the game. But when I check my inventory there is nothing there at all no extra cash no extra clams. So I’m confused as to what to do now. Also I was almost don’t getting things for Connie and when the game reset the first time it took away all the items I had just earned and had me re click on half the people and didn’t get those items again and some of the people I got the items from didn’t pop back up again. I just want to know if I am the only one with this issue because it is begining to get very annoying.

  4. Glad to read that some people are getting all the fireworks from the mystery box. I’ve opened 32 mystery boxes:
    7 Pocket Fireworks
    17 Pixie Fireworks
    2 Sunburst Fireworks
    6 White Patriotic Flowers
    1 5000 Coins

    Still no Colassal Fireworks

  7. Any idea when they’re gonna allow characters to level up past 15 besides Peter? Almost all my characters are maxed out and have been for some time now. My peter is lvl 17 and would like to continue to level up some of my other characters

    • I only see this happening later down the road when TinyCo wants to “lock” a new task until you go up a level or two. I get the feeling they really didn’t think the leveling-up system through, since the “main” leveling means nothing (no coin or clam incentive/reward) and stops at 40….and most character tasks unlock at the lower levels.

  10. Hi there fellow addicts…. I have a ?, is there a limit on leveling up? I got to level 40 last night ( yes, I have no life…been home sick for a while now). Thankfully, I am getting my coins back after spending so much on the flipping fireworks. (That grinds my gears)! I have gotten none, nada, zip……ex points. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about that, or maybe a glitch??? I have been reading all I can on the site here, and either didn’t catch it, or I have a short attention span ( like peter), oh …..look a squirrel…. LoL.anyway… Thank you all for the tips, and help. Here’s hoping everyone has a safe and happy holiday weekend. 😉

  16. I’m REALLY disappointed that I spent 120 clams on the water park then today it is free in the quest. It’s penalised those who got in early in buying the premium items. Maybe the moral of this story is not to get premium items in these events until the tasks are clearer. 😦

          • No…..it wouldn’t do that because the “free” one is coded differently than the one you chose to buy for 120 clams (that’s why it has it’s own spot in the “shopping cart”). In order to complete the quest line, you will need to place the “free” item into your town.

            Sorry, but it looks like you’re stuck with two water parks. 😦

            • Disappointing. Tiny co dropped the ball here. No one needs two parks and we habe so much coin built up after the last event that everyone will get this. Quite simply shouldn’t have been an option to buy in first place if it is a reward from a quest.

  20. My water park seems to have disappeared. It was there earlier under buildings and the first tab and I could purchase it for clams. I read this forum and collected three of the four fireworks. I went under the tabs to see what else was there and the waterpark is no longer there. Not even for clams…. Anyone know what happened or also have this problem?

    • This is the first we’ve heard of this. Is your “Deep Fried Everything” built yet? If/when it is done, just continue with the quest line and see if it gets triggered. 🙂

Restarted game and then it appeared under buildings, so I got it and have placed it just waiting for it to be built…. Weird, but it worked… Thanks for the tip or I might have spent clams on it. Great site, love coming here and learning so much about family guy quest for stuff.

  32. Hey, I’ve already won one of each firework and placed them in my town. I got pretty lucky, it didn’t take very many tries to get them all.

    I haven’t triggered the quest yet though (not using clams to speed up buildings). When the quest appears, will I instantly complete it or will I have to win the fireworks again? I’m assuming the latter because the quest is just to place them. Thanks in advance.

    • Has anyone noticed the free park isn’t animated? And is also missing the flags the top of the poles? I really wanted to see the animation and waited to get the free one and now the one that costs clams is gone. I know its not really a big deal but let me know if that is the same for any of you guys.

      • Try storing the water park in your inventory, hard close the game…shut off your device. Then turn your device back on, load the game and replace the water park into your town. If this doesn’t work, send an in-game message to TinyCo. Let us know if this worked 😉

        Ps: I believe TinyCo heard the cries of those that paid 120 clams, only to find it would be given free to everyone (they have begun to refund the 120 clams) and removed it from the shopping cart.
