Join Sheldon on vacation in Sunny Side Cay. Things around here are little different than in Upstate New Yolk (your usual Hatchlings hunting destination), so stick your toes in the sand, and take it easy while you’re here!
Players who have reached level 20 or higher have the ability to travel to different locations. To travel to Sunny Side Cay, you will need a Travel Ticket. Travel Tickets are one-way only, so you’ll need another one to get back to Upstate New Yolk. Need more Travel Tickets? You can buy them in the Hatchlings Marketplace. Special Deal: Get an Easter in July travel pass and enjoy unlimited travel through the end of the event!
To start your adventure, click on the travel icon on your game page to pull up the travel screen.
Hunting in Sunny Side Cay is unique. The eggs in Sunny Side Cay constantly roll by in waves. When you see an egg you want to collect, click on it to add it to your Beach Bucket.
Choose your clicks carefully! In Sunny Side Cay you only get so many clicks, and you don't want to miss on on an Uber floating by. Check the Speed Meter to see how many clicks you have left to use.
If you are out of clicks, your cursor will turn into an X, and you get to take a break and wait for your meter to fill back up.
Feeling stressed, or wanting a thrill? Use the Speed Meter to slow things down, or speed things up!
Need to take a break? Go ahead and push that pause button! Your eggs will stop moving, and your clicks will stop regenerating.
There’s a flag in your Beach Bucket that keeps track of how many eggs you have collected. At any time, you can click the flag to view, share and store your collected eggs.
Your Beach Bucket can only hold 100 eggs, and once it’s full, the flag will turn red. You can continue to hunt, but your oldest finds will be pushed out of the bucket and get swept away by the tide. If you know you collected an egg you don’t want to lose, be sure to click the flag to bring up your finds!
At Sunny Side Cay, you can hunt for a different set of egg series than you can in Upstate New Yolk, and new Sunny Side Cay specific series will be released at this destination throughout the month! Use a key while you are in Sunny Side Cay to open these exotic new series.
Since Sunny Side Cay and Upstate New Yolk each have a different mix of series, your open series markers at the bottom of the game will only show you your open series for the location in which you are currently hunting. However, even though you can only hunt for the series that are available in your current location, stored eggs (network and premium) will be available across both destinations.
Want to have more fun at the beach? Open an island-style challenge in Sunny Side Cay!
Note: Challenges can be opened in either Sunny Side Cay or Upstate New Yolk, but will only contain eggs from series available in the location where the challenge was started.
Service to Sunny Side Cay will only be available for a limited time, so you’ll want to complete your series (and maybe stock up your storage) before time runs out.
In Sunny Side Cay, “Island Time” has a totally different meaning. Get your speed meter running on Island Time by purchasing a Speed Boost. To shop speed boosts, click “Speed Boost” on your meter.
A Speed Boost makes your clicks regenerate faster for a period of time. This means you can fill up your basket faster, too! When the Speed Boost is active, your Speed Meter will be decorated with island swag, and the sand dollars will be a different color.
Use this time to turn down your speed and enjoy hunting at a more leisurely pace, or crank it up and collect eggs at lightning speed!
Long thought to be dormant, Mauna Hua, the volcano on Sunny Side Cay has awoken. This molten mountain demands offerings from players, but rewards your gifts with special gifts of its own!
While hunting, you may occasionally find strange relics floating by, featuring the likeness of the great volcano, Mauna Hua. Click on these offerings to throw them into the volcano. Every player who throws an offering into the volcano edges Mauna Hua just a little closer to an eggsplosion! Once enough offerings have been made, the volcano will erupt, and players who made an offering will be swept away as a group.
There are several types of offering that players can throw into the volcano:
- Standard tokens. These are found in regular hunting mode. Keep an eye out!
- Premium tokens. Hatchlings Premium members receive one free Premium token per day to offer to the volcano. In addition, Premium tokens will occasionally float by in hunting mode, giving Premium members more chances to make offerings.
Offerings for purchase: At any time, players in Sunny Side Cay can purchase an offering to throw into the volcano.
Check the Eruption Meter to see how close the volcano is to erupting. If you see an offering on your Eruption Meter, that means you’ll be swept up in the next eruption. If you aren’t having any luck finding offerings, or you want to boost the volcano closer to erupting, you can buy offerings by clicking on the Eruption Meter.
When the volcano is about to erupt, players who made an offering will get a warning countdown, then be swept away to the multiplayer eruption site. After the volcano erupts, a giant volcanic boulder will be left behind. Work together and break the boulder by clicking it until it reveals the prizes that hide inside.
Once the boulder breaks apart, smaller lava rocks will scatter across the site, each containing an island Uber. Compete against the other players to crack the rocks and claim the Uber within by clicking on them until they’ve crumbled completely.
Can I opt out?
If you are caught up in an eruption and want to go back to the beach before it’s over, refresh your game to exit the volcano.
What happens if I am not around when Mauna Hua erupts?
If you made an offering but are not actively playing in Sunny Side Cay when the eruption happens, your offering will still be taken, but you will not be swept away to the eruption site.
What can I find in the Volcano?
There are a variety of prices to be had when you venture into the depths of Mauna Hua! Available prizes will vary according to season and event, but possible rewards include badges and Uber-Rare eggs. There is even a series that is exclusive to the Volcano: the Magma series. Make an offering to start competing for these amazing prizes!
