Want to play on your own time, without waiting on a staff member? All of the following will be available at all times during the carnival for you to enjoy by yourself or with friends!
❄️ Scavenger Hunt: Find all of the letters (9 in total!) and place them in a chest in order, then /modreq for a prize!
❄️ Winter Mini Golf: Check the rules hut to learn how to play and grab a club, then weave your way through our challenging course to the very end.
❄️ Polar Bear Plunge: Visit our llama tour stables for an incredible plunge through a wintery scene. Be sure to explore – you just might find something you weren’t expecting.
❄️ Snow Golem Shoot Out: Shoot the minecarts out from beneath the snow golems in this classic carnival game.
❄️ Snow Spleef: Aside from the tournament, you can play Snow Spleef whenever you’d like! Please replace snow when you’re finished, either using snow you’ve collected from /explore, or purchased from the sign shop in the arena.
❄️ Dunk Tank: Plunge staff members and players alike into the icy waters of our frigid dunk tank, now with targets!
❄️ Ice Boat Racing: Grab a boat and try out our Ice Karting course for yourself, or challenge your friends to a race! Pro tip: Hit F5 for a third-person view to minimize dizziness… or don’t!
❄️ Boat Jousting: Hilarity on ice – shoot your friends boats to break them! Last player still in a boat is the winner!
Whew! So much to do and so little time! Be sure to join us between January 16th and the 31st to get in on the activity – the carnival will move on after the Snow Ball, not to return for another year!
