Best way to spend 200 FREE Acorns in Acorn Meadows Park?

21 replies 876 views Edited May 5, 2013

OK - I admit, I was hasty in my first assessment of the park after the loading issue frustration on Day 1, but when not in my beautiful RL yard and garden, this is a great place when it finally loaded. I love the races and the greenery, love seeing people running with their dogs and the people watching. :smileyvery-happy:

 

With that said, I scoured through Jo's thread Acorn Meadows Park Impressions, among the other AMP threads and thought - what is the BEST way to spend (or should I say maximize) the 200 FREE acorns at the Park? I don't have a lot of money  on Home. Plus, I wish (HINT!) someone could put together a complete challenge list with compendium rewards/xp/coin gain guide.

 

Ok .. Go! Help me and others stratigize ...

Don't buy or rent a bike or rent a boat unless they're fixed. Last I looked we couldn't anyway.

 

It's goofy but since they're cheap, have a hotdog, cup of coffee, and an ice cream cone. Neither lasts long.

 

Take a train ride and stay on as long as you can. There's a reward but I don't know if one has to stay on for an extended period. I think the reward or rewards are two pieces of personal furniture in the form of rail tracks but I don't guarantee this. The train train is fun. One can converse while on the train by pressing START and then the Triangle buttons. Expect to cough a lot from the choo choo train. The riders aren't waving to people, they're trying to wave away the smoke,

 

If you have Binx the walking dog from VEEMEE you don't have to buy a dog from the dog vendor. Use Binx. It's an interesting place to go for a while anyway.

 

Just walk around and enjoy or use a locomotive previously bought from skates to airplanes to trains to horses... Have fun :smileyhappy:

I have 200 acorns on my main and two alternate accounts. I think I'm going to be getting bikes once they fix the shop. They seem to have the least maintenance involved. Walking dogs is just too much work and I never was much on following behind pooper scooping! 

 

And the bikes look pretty neat actually. They look like real ones I've used in real life.

I got a BMX bike LMO with my 200, back when the bike shop was working.

;^) Many of the challenges involve bicycles, so buying one might be a good investment. Also, it is possible to earn acorns by completing race tasks. Since these allow locomotions, your new bicycle can help you complete them, and pay for itself that way, in time.

I hope they fix the bikes so they ride well instead of tossing me in the water. My bikes think they're a boat when I get near water.

 

As for the dogs, they're fun but they bark too loud except for VEEMEE's Binx from the store.

Yeah, a bike would be the best option (once they fix the shop up) for the races, and riding with others for the mini game,that is unless you already have a LMO. The second best option would be a dog as walking it for 30 minutes in the dog park would earn you a sum of experience. Finally, the last option would be to do the ice cream parlor / hot dog stand / coffee shop activities, they earn you some experience and a few rewards also staying on the train for a little while gains you experience and doing the lake races.

I've completed almost every challenge so far. With the exception of spending 10,000 Acorn, Letting numerous people ride on my bike & on my Swan (seperate challenge), & riding on numerous people's Swans. Can't complete these until they have fixed these areas. There's still about 10 challenges still showing up as '???' on my end, but I'm guessing those will have to do with the picnic additions & challenges that will be released eventually.
