Save a Voltage Dragon and Join our S.P.L.A.T. Missions!

Jumpeez, beware! The evil sorcerer Tangorra has RETURNED to JumpStart and he is up to his sinister antics yet again. This guy has one mission and one mission only: to drain ALL of the energy out of JumpStart! We know. This is downright cruel and cold. In order for him to fulfill his wicked mission, Tangorra must brew one elaborate potion. However, to pull this spell off he will need the eggs of the Voltage Dragon.
1You might be asking, “What is the Voltage Dragon? I have never seen this creature in the Enchanted Sanctuary!” That is because the Voltage Dragon is an extremely rare type of Mythie that few Jumpeez have had the privilege of seeing. These Mythies tend to stick together and hide deep inside JumpStart’s energy centers. They are a quiet Mythie, but they are important creatures to us citizens of JumpStart!
3If we do not act, JumpStart could be in some serious trouble because of this mischievous magician. The energy of our Voltage Dragons helps us run all of our FunZones and lands. Thankfully, Jumpeez all across JumpStart have joined together and formed S.P.L.A.T. to stop Tangorra. S.P.L.A.T. is an organization that is short for the Secret Protection League Against Troublemakers that keeps our favorite places fun and friendly. However, its leaders choose to remain anonymous so you might never come across with another S.P.L.A.T. agent in your travels through JumpStart. Instead, you will be greeted by their representative, S.P.L.A.T.T.E.R. (Secret Protection League Against Troublemakers Transmit Email Robotically). S.P.L.A.T.T.E.R. will give you important tips to finding the path to the mysterious Voltage Dragon, before Tangorra gets to them first!
2If you are one of the lucky few to receive a message from S.P.L.A.T.T.E.R., please: follow its clues and help save JumpStart! Are YOU ready to embark on this mission?

Explore The Star-Spangled FunZones in Our July Additions!

As your parents start firing up the barbecue and you spend more time playing in the pool, Frankie has been bringing us so many great summertime adventures. In keeping with the warm weather and past Fourth of July holiday, Frankie decided to put a patriotic flare on all of the new FunZone and Scavenger Hunt additions. Let’s check out just some of the wonderful features to explore this month!
1Frankie and his pals were so excited to celebrate the Fourth of July that they made sure to prepare a glorious picnic right in the center of MainStreet! With this GIANT picnic, it is hard to tell whether this food is huge or you just got smaller. Either way, we certainly seem to have enough treats to go around for all of us Jumpeez!
2If you are starting to get a bit exhausted from hopping all over this picnic potluck, relax by the cool waters of the butterfly-shaped pool at the Boardwalk. The water is just the right temperature help you refresh after a warm JumpStart summer day.
However, maybe you still have a lot of energy to burn off after exploring the MainStreet FunZone. That would not be surprising considering how much sugar is in those large cupcakes! Not to worry, we have just the activity for you to burn off some more steam. A tall waterslide has just popped up DownTown too! Thankfully, you do not need to worry about climbing up the steep latter to reach the top. Save yourself an extra workout by using the launchpad beside the pool!
3Lastly, we have a special Scavenger Hunt for the month so that you can collect items and be prepared for your Fourth of July festivities! These fireworks might give themselves away… Just look at them sparkle!

With all of these new July additions, you will have plenty to explore with your fellow Jumpeez this month. Maybe start off the month with sharing some treats with your friends, or cooling off by the pool. The possibilities are endless! Also, do not forget to stop by the fireworks show DownTown if you are already missing all of the sparkling festivities from this weekend!
