Where Did The Blimp Go? Fine Arts District Clarifications

Hey there Tribblemakers!

Bouncing by for a quick flashback as there is a specific question that seems to keep popping up in the comments in regards to the Fine Arts District and the Blimp. “Where did the Blimp go, I wasn’t done?” No worries, here to help as usual . Blimp Questline

Let’s recap just exactly WHAT happens with the Fine Arts District and how the Blimp factors into it all.

First, the Fine Arts District is an extension of District 9 and the Blimp questline. Due to this, you WILL have to complete the Fine Arts District now before moving on to District 10 and the Pawtucket Brewery.

Now, on to the main subject… the Blimp.

 


HOW MANY TRIPS TOTAL DOES THE BLIMP MAKE?Blimp Trip

In the Fine Arts District, the Blimp will make 5 trips then it is done. At that point it will go away and not return.

Per TinyCo: “Once you complete the quest “Ye Olde Blimp Trippe, Pt 4″ the blimp will disappear from the water. We may bring it back in the future though. Stay tuned!”

View the Entire Fine Arts Questline HERE.

 


BUT I DIDN’T GET ALL OLIVIA’S ITEMS!!!Unlock Olivia

The Blimp itself does NOT bring the items back the minute it returns. Instead, it is just one part of a 3 and 4 part quest dialog. It is during the DIALOG that the items will actually drop.

As you get to a specific point in the dialog, items will pop into the Shopping Cart Menu for purchase. Also, at the END of the questline for each of the 5 trips the item the got on the Blimp Trip will finally be awarded.

For the drop points of the Old West and Egypt, see HERE.

For the drop points of the Prehistory, Ancient Rome, and Renaissance Blimp Trips, see HERE.

 


I CAN’T FIND THE ITEMS!

If you have followed ALL of the questline, not just sent the Blimp, the items you are seeking will be in one of two places.

Items unlocked from the trip and triggered from the questlines will appear in your Shopping Cart Menu to buy with Coin or Clams.Fine Arts District Shopping Cart Menu

Coin or Clam items include:
h. O. me
Leaning Tower of Pisa
Dance Cowboy
Da Vinci’s Flying Machine
Wool. I. Am
Buddy the Caveman
Agador Farticus
Sandy Pyramid
Egyptian Bath House

 

The Main items you will need to help unlock Oliva are mostly awarded at the END of each questline. This means you have to send the Blimp for its trip AND complete all the dialog for that trip. These items will go to your Inventory and will need to be placed into the game.Dance Hall Days Part 4 Saloon

Items unlocked at END of questlines include:
Shakey Balcony Saloon
Dancing Snake
Trieste the Triceratops
Acrapolis
Guillotine

For the drop points of the Old West and Egypt, see HERE.

For the drop points of the Prehistory, Ancient Rome, and Renaissance Blimp Trips, see HERE.

 


I UNLOCKED OLIVIA, WHY AM I NOT DONE?

Olivia 1

As stated above, there are FIVE Blimp Trips total. Four of them help to get the prizes Olivia needs. Then once she is unlocked, there is one final trip before it is done. So keep going until all five are complete.

Here is the complete questline again.  

 


I GOT STUCK TRYING TO GET OLIVIA!

Fine Arts District Locked

If you are stuck and can’t seem to get the Fine Arts District Land unlocked, here is a post that may help you out to gain access to that land so you can continue on with all the questlines.

How to unlock Fine Arts District Land HERE. 

 


To recap…

  • The Blimp makes FIVE trips total
  • Each trip is 3 to 4 Parts. The Blimp Trip AND Dialog all have to be completed to get the items.
  • Items will unlock via the Dialog and appear in the Menu for purchase or your Inventory Storage for placement.
  • The Blimp will go away for good at the end of the 5th trip.
  • Fine Arts District must be complete to unlock District 10 aka the Pawtucket Brewery

Hope this helped to get some better clarification on the Fine Arts District. Did this help you? Did you locate all the items you needed now? Does this help to make better sense of the Blimp Trips? Let us know.

  1. I’m in level 47. I have build the blimp TWICE and right after Stewie says that I have to turn it on it disappears!!!!! I’m still waiting for District 9 to open and nothing happens and obviously I don’t have the Fine Arts district yet. What can I do??? I’ve contacted the people from the game but no answers…

  7. I’ve completed the blimp stuff and am now ready for Time Travel but like these other people, my Blimp has disappeared and is gone. Are you sure it isn’t because we waited so long to reach this point in the game? I went almost a year without playing and just recently started back up on FB only, not the phone. I get the task of Dance Hall Days Pt 4 (Time Travel to Old West) but when I hit Ok, nothing happens. None of the characters have tasks that would earn Plutonium…there is no blimp in the ocean. Here are my current tasks that are open:

    Mayor West Runs the Town Pt 7
    Dance Hall Days Pt 4
    The Quest for Mobile Stuff (can’t do because I don’t want Family Guy on my phone)
    Show Me Your Tan Lines Pt 4
    Chris: The Quest for Stuff Pt 3
    Stu In His Own Juice Pt 2
    And the New Years event with the party hats and noisemakers are still available to earn…

    That’s all…i opened all the gray land that you can buy in District 9, Olivia is there waiting for the buildings…District 10 and 11 (graveyard) are grayed out and can’t be opened…

    What’s going on?

    Thanks in advance, Jason Parker

        • So you are in this Questline…
          https://familyguyaddicts.com/2014/09/15/quest-for-stuff-quick-walkthroughs-district-9-building-a-blimp-and-unlocking-tom-tucker/

          My suggestion (which TinyCo may suggest too) is to ensure your game is saved to an email or Facebook. Once you are sure it is saved and linked… Uninstall app, restart device, reinstall app, log in, LOAD saved game, see if anything else triggers.

          As some of the Districts in this area have been changed with new additions inserted later on after the game launched, things may pop up a bit differently. Normally you would head to District 9, but now with the Fine Arts added… it skips to Fine Arts and Part 2 of the Blimp first. But the land would need to be seen in your game as unlockable and the area around it purchasable to move forward. Does it look like you can access the land?

          If the Uninstall still does not work, message TinyCo from your game and tell them you tried uninstall and the exact name of the Task you are stuck on… Build a Blimp Pt 7

I know you have replied to a number of people to read the post and I have done, several times in fact, but I am still no clearer on what to do. I have nothing in my store or inventory related to this quest so I don’t know what to do. I know I stopped playing for a while because I had work I needed to do, was this time I took away the reason I cannot complete this? Any help would be much appreciated, just please don’t tell me to read the post again, I have done. If you can’t help say that instead.
