Haunted Attraction is unlocked when the player reaches level 7.
Haunted Attraction was introduced during the Harvest and Halloween Update's second Timed Challenge Event "Celebration of the Spirits" (October 2016). When the Update was first released, Haunted Attraction was hidden, and did not appear on player's boards until the Celebration of the Spirits Timed Challenges began. This was the second time that content installed on a device by an update file was set to be hidden until a pre-determined date, and was used as a way to have two separate Timed Challenge Events installed at the same time, with staggered start dates.
For the duration of this Update, Haunted Attraction could be opened from level 7 onward to allow all players to take part in the update's timed challenges.
Pumpkin Lantern special items were needed in addition to energy points to play Haunted Attraction. While the Celebration of the Spirits Timed Challenges were still active, Pumpkin Lanterns were given as rewards for every successful investigation for every picture, and as rewards for banishing Anomalies, but not for playing puzzles. After the timed challenges ended (either a player completes all of the challenges, or the timer expires, whichever happened first), Pumpkin Lanterns were restricted so that they are only won by playing Japanese House and Bungalow.
With the Introduction of the Magic Tour and Christmas Update (November 2016), Pumpkin Lanterns were completely removed from the game. They were no longer required to play Haunted Attraction, which became a regular Picture that just requires energy points to play. Any leftover Pumpkin Lanterns in a player's Inventory were automatically converted, in equal parts, to the regular special items in the game (Fireflies, Ladybugs, Carrots, Cupid Arrows, and Tokens) and the collections that used to reward Pumpkin Lanterns as rewards for combining them during the Harvest and Halloween Update had their rewards changed to regular game items.
From the Diary:
"Today something rather astonishing happened. Christy reported that a big black crow had appeared on her window sill, holding some pieces in its beak. When the crow cawed, they scattered all over the room. Later we realized they were fragments of a magic photo! It features a scary haunted attraction. But the strangest thing is the message scratched on the back of the photo: "Come if you're not afraid." Is this a Halloween joke - or a real invitation?"
As of November 2016, Haunted Attraction is one of the 22 pictures in the game that does not reward any combining elements, but does reward collection items that require a large number of combining elements to combine.
- Crystal ball
- Witch hat
Morphs and Pieces modes have their own items that need to be found, separate from those listed above.
Resource Demands and Rewards for PlayingEdit
Haunted Attraction is a Collection Item only Picture. This means its list of potential rewards for each play only contains regular Collection Items, mode dependent Collection Items (depending on what mode the Picture is currently in), and Quest Items (if a Quest is currently active for the Picture). The list of potential rewards for Haunted Attraction is made up of 9 Collections added by the Harvest and Halloween Update:
- Multifaceted picture
- Dietrich's story
- James' puzzle solution
- Chasing the burglar
- Police duty belt
- Haunted house
- Strange drawing
- Home alone
When Haunted Attraction is first opened, and so is on Novice level, only the first 4 items from the Multifaceted picture collection will be on the list of potential rewards. As the level of the Picture is increased, more and more items will be unlocked as potential rewards.
The amount of energy required to play Haunted Attraction will increase as the level of the Picture is increased. The experience points and coins rewards for each win of the Picture will also increase to match the increase in resource demands, as will the pool of potential collection item rewards:
