Thanks!  I'll definitely give that a shot.

 

As for missing the last gate due ot the quick turn and short distance thus short timer, what I do is I approach the 2nd to last gate from the far left so I have plenty of time to turn and drift through it to line up tith the second gate... but if you do miss it, the best thing to do is let go the left stick and keep your POV (right stick) lined up with the bow of the boat, then pull back on the left stick to go backwards, and this way you dont have to turn around which can take time.

You sir, are a frickin' genius... and a gentleman and a scholar. :smileywink:

 

I took a break from watching stage 2 of the TdF (GO Sagan!) and sky diving from whale spouts in Home, and went to the park and stood in the area you mentioned and look what popped up after just 3 minutes in the space:

 

 

 

First round of drinks at the Mos Eisley Cantina are on me! :smileylol:

Glad you figured it out, I couldn't for the life of me remember what I had done! But it also had popped up really quickly for me.

I'm not seeing this on the list of original rewards but if you drink 5 and 10 of the original coffee cups, you get a Park Coffee Cup Hat. It looks similar to the golden ones, only in the origanl coloring of the park rewards.

If anyones still having problems getting the Stars Lake Task to appear, I may have a second place that will help get them if your not having any luck with Steve's spot.

 

I stood on the wooden platform by the hut nearest the Skateboard Park looking at the lake, and a Star Lake Task appeared. I then froze before I could complete the task. But...

 

I then came back and went straight to the hut again, and withen a few minutes (it was the first one) it appeared again, I took a quick photo and froze again (!) whilst I was waiting for the camera spinny thing to stop spinning. But...

 

I returned a third time, and for the third time it appeared again, and this time I was able to complete it.

 

 

Successfully appeared for me three times when waiting at this spot.

Well, seems VEEMEE has bugged the Park again… :smileymad:

 

Be warned it's currently impossible to do "Stars 'n' Stripes RC Car Races" since your RC Car disappears once it hits the ground and returns to the RC Stand. (Or at least my "RC Bunny" one did. Repeatedly.)

My guide is from the first park update on. I did provide a link to the original reward guide done by @TitusF . It's at the very top of the page.

Yes, when using The Mayflower for the Stars N Stripes RC boat race, it instantly terminated my race as well. V. Similar to what happened during Easter. :smileysad:

Awesome find Kelly - I tried it with my alt account just to see if it worked, and it the "Stars & Stripes" peddle boat task popped up right away.  

 

So it seems every Stars & Stripes race tasks can be manually triggered - except maybe the normal race task?  That one fortunately popped up randomly as I was waiting for the boat task to pop up before knowing about these trigger spot areas.
