I peaced out on the event after I got my sapphire chest and then sent some level 9 characters to level up to 10. Leaderboard events bore me to tears, so not much to play until this part of the event is over.

And the actual event doesn't start for another week or so? God, I hope I'm wrong. This is already taking forever and it hasn't even started yet.

    A question: has anyone gotten wish requests for characters that aren't already out and about? I still haven't since the update. I was only getting them for characters collecting already, so I brought a couple out of storage. Lo and behold they started getting requests too. I have a theory that this was programmed in due to the character limit.

    I think you are correct. At least that has been my experience too. I just love when I get 4 requests for a character I just sent out to collect an 8 hour owl token.

    Pretty sure I haven’t gotten any requests from any characters who aren’t out and about. Also finding that I’m getting considerably fewer attraction request since the update. Have thought about the additional characters idea, but haven’t tried that yet. Truth be told, I have played considerably less than usual this weekend so not sure how much that impacts it. All I know is they broke the happiness feature and need to fix it soon.

    I started using happiness Safeguard (625 elixir) and found that using it every other day let’s me stay ecstatic. So I’m gonna keep doing that for now.

    I bet we run into a tapper or golden trophy request next week for 4 days as a bridge until we get to the cascading critters event.

    I'm noticing the same wish issues here. Thanks, Gameloft. 😠

    I've cleared out my entire park except for the attractions that are required for wishes and the ones needed for tokens. Everything else is gone.
    I would love to do this, but I'm not paying close enough attention to know what needs to be out. With my history, I'd forget to put one out and then my characters wouldn't be able to do the tasks they need to do.

    I'm only working on a small handful of characters at this point, so there aren't many buildings out. I nearly missed one or two, but when I checked the requirements for each token, I caught the ones I forgot to put out.

    I am working on the same six that you listed. I have still made mistakes (like not leveling up one of the ENG characters so he could help with Yzma's items) so I'm a little worried about doing that, but I think it's a great idea.

    It appears the sapphire chests with the Bride are available again this weekend. Just as an FYI, I did tests last weekend, once each day on a second device, and in those three tests: 1) I spent 2600 gems on 26 chests and did not get the Bride (I actually did this one twice); 2) I spent 2700 gems on 27 chests and did not get the Bride; 3) I spent 2100 gems on 21 chests and did get the Bride, but there is no chance I am actually spending that much on a character. Since the prizes have been pre-determined for so long, I still don't know the refresh rate as to how long you have to wait for the order of prizes to actually vary, but it was different over the three days (except for the two tests on the first day; each of those yielded the exact same results).

    Just in case anyone is curious about a real, practical application of the odds of trying to get the Bride. I may try again sometime today to see what happens.

    EDIT: I went ahead and tried again; 28 chests, 2800 gems, no Bride today

    I just got the Bride in the strangest or strange ways!

    I primarily play on my phone and occasionally log in on my iPad for 2 extra daily gems and tappers event with hard to find items. Just logged into my iPad, which I last opened up 6 days ago and I was pleasantly greeted with ALL my 2/1 tapper rewards AGAIN for last week and the Saphire chest had the Bride in it!!! :thumbsup2

    I did the same thing last weekend alternating between my iphone and ipad. ie, load main game on iphone, then exit out. Load the cloud version on the ipad and go through the chests. Afterwards, reload the local version on the iphone to update the cloud version. Back to the ipad to reload the cloud version, and do the chests again. Then back to iphone with loading local game to update the cloud yet again. Rinse and repeat.

    The first day I went through 11 chests before I got the bride. Wasn't going to spend 1100 gems, so I passed. The next day, It only took 7 chests until the bride showed up. Nope, not spending 700 gems on her. The third day, she popped out at chest 3. I decided to spend the 300 gems that day to get her since it seemed that she was getting 4 chests closer each day, and I didn't feel like waiting another day and having her pass me by.

    The other thing that was noticed was the following for me. It didn't matter how many times I did it each day, each time it took the same exact number of chests, going through the same exact order of specific concession stands, before I finally got to the bride. Everything was already pre-determined for each day. I also noticed that for my chests, the bride ALWAYS came after the Gummy Grubs Stand, every single time like clockwork. So, there is absolutely nothing random about these chests, it's all predetermined each and every day. I would not waste my gems on any of these without being able to "test" how many it would take to get the reward. People spending tons of money on gems to attempt to get her, that's crazy.

    Finally, after getting her I realize just what a waste she really is. Doesn't help with anything. The only person that can get her common token is her, and one of the Haunted Mansions. So now that I have her up to level 4, it takes 40 common tokens, meaning 40 hours of one hour quests just to get those. Each level this will get progressively worse, which is absolutely crazy. There needs to be more characters for her common token.

    Congrats to both! I'm glad at least some people are able to get her. 500 gems or less are about what I would have been willing to do, but I never came close to that, so oh well. And yes, the chests have been fully pre-determined for quite some time now, despite some people believing otherwise for the longest time back when the game made it appear you could control what you would get by timing. For me, it's still just a question of how long before the pre-determination resets, or if there are other triggers that might reset the chests, but I haven't experimented enough to figure that out.

    Has anyone else noticed since the update that drops have been getting worse? I just went 0 for 8 on my last collection of characters and this seems to be the norm lately.

    I can't tell if it's because all my characters are tough to get items for or if they changed it, but I feel like I'm making no progress.

    This thing where all the requests are only for the characters who are out is super annoying.
