Ooh, I can't wait to get back on. I've been stuck at level 2 all this time. I've been racing a lot, so I hope I get a good jump.

*sigh* I just went the park, leveled up, teleported near the bike vendor and discovered it's not working, the train is stopped and the boats and food and vendors don't work. It's always something there. I think I'll go to the casino.

The above comment is my opinion, unless I state a fact. You can disagree with my opinion, but facts are facts.

Re: Acorn Meadows Park Update

I've been hanging around Acorn Park for a long time the past week.

 

Here's what I know

 

If you see no boats in the water (not even empty ones by the dock) then the boats and bikes are turned off completely. There also won't be npcs by the stores.

 

If you see someone riding a boat then the bike shop is working. They're connected. If the bike shop is broken, the boats are broken and vice-versa.

 

The bikes/boats will randomly work throughout the day. When they do work, they last maybe 5-20 minutes before they break. If they break while you're in the space the train will freeze. The train won't be frozen if you weren't present when they broke.

 

To fix a frozen train, you just need to leave and reenter.  Doesn't matter if it's the same instance.

 

The only time the boats and bikes work perfectly and don't break is when the instance has very few people.

Thanks for taking the time to share your observations. I'm sure some people will find this information valuable.

Thanks for the level fix guys, Me & the whole community really appreciate it. Now we can do races & even spend acorns to do the boat races w/out feeling like it's pointless! I popped in this morning to see if any progress was made & jumped to level 30 Ranger, lol knew I should have got those few extra races in yesterday to bump me up too 31, haha only a couple hundred away tho. Also got 300+ acorns from the level jumping, now which (other) bike or dog should I get is the main problem w/ the space lol. Thanks again!!!!

It's certainly nice to be able to level up and earn some acorns. I can now afford to get another bike after gettubg 225 additional ones to spend. I'm even running races with my alternate given I'd like for her to be able to get another bike style as well.

I hate to keep sounding repetitive, but I just can't help myself! You're level of Customer Service is excellent! You should know that it IS appreciated by so many in Home. Many if the other developers could learn a thing or two from you. Thank you!

The Park is one of the best things to have ever hit Home and I can't thank you enough for bringing us this amazing space. Thank you also for working so hard to get things fixed and keeping us informed.

So, I just found out that if you are an instance where the boats and bikes aren't working, you can't finish the take a picture of a boat photo task, even though you can see the boats at the dock. I guess the game doesn't recognize them.
