Then “Walk” on over to Wimpy Boardwalk, because it is OUT…for members. (I’m bad at jokes huh? Points for effort? 😀 )
There is a demo out for non-members though. Once you land on the Boardwalk, talk to Greg. He’ll tell you how the game he’s playing, Himalayan Hurl is rigged. When he takes out his money, it flies away into the hands of two teenagers who run off with it. Follow Greg as he runs after them. Catch up with him at the Boardwalk Arcade and says the teens disappeared somewhere. Go right to the beach and talk to the guy selling Souvenir keychain photos. Tell him you don’t have any money and he’ll let you take a photo for free. (You get a photo for your photo album once you complete this action). He gives you sunblock, which you’ll be able to use for this guy once the full island releases.
While you’re there, you’ll see a seagull carrying a keychain! Jump onto the trash can and when the seagull passes over you, jump and get the keychain. See a striking resemblance to the guy with the metal detector? You can give it to him when the full island releases. Meanwhile, go back to the Boardwalk arcade and see Greg tell you that the kids are underneath the boardwalk taunting you with the money, like so:
If you try to go underneath the boardwalk, they run away with the money. So you’ll have to find a way to get the money without them running away. CUE END OF DEMO if you go to the beach or the Boardwalk Rides. But this place will play a role in your quest:
(Creds to Super Thunder for pics! 😉 )
Wimpy Boardwalk Trivia!
1) There is a handheld laser gun in the common room! But you don’t get to keep it 😦 *sigh*
2) Your character gets to wear SHOES!
3) This is the first time the Creators’ have released an island out of the blue without a countdown.
The island will be released to everyone on July 18! At least it’s a shorter wait! 🙂
Happy 4th of July for those in the US! And Happy Wednesday for those that aren’t!
