Quest Ice Hotel

Build and Upgrade:


Ice Hotel is a Rocky Mountains Timed Quest in which the player has 192 hours to build and upgrade a total of 3 new fixed structures with assets leading up to Winter related rewards. It was released as part of an update on 01.23.2015.[1]

Character Winter Female
"An iceberg has come to the shores of Megapolis!"

"A giant iceberg has floated into the shores of Megapolis! Some Megapolis citizens think that we should restrict the free movement of icebergs. Others believe we can use this free iceberg for our own needs!"

"The residents beg the mayor: take immediate action!"

"Experts believe that we can study the iceberg and find the most interesting way to use it. For example, we could make an Ice Hotel from it. But first of all, the city needs to build a Glaciology Institute to study the ice."
