As we welcome the month of May, start off the month right with a brand new scavenger hunt in JumpStart! Festive items are hidden throughout MainStreet and DownTown, ready to provide some excitement to all who find them.
Get in the spirit of Cinco de Mayo with a scavenger hunt full of various cultural items. Celebrate a different history and culture as you search JumpStart and become introduced to fun objects you may not have seen before.
UPDATE: S.P.L.A.T. wants to thank all Jumpeez who participated in this mission! Because of your kids, all the voltage dragon eggs were rescued from the evil Sorcerer Tangorra and JumpStart was saved! This mission is now over.
Did you know the mischievous Sorcerer Tangorra is trying to remove all the energy from JumpStart? It’s true! Right now, he is searching for a dragon nest hidden somewhere in JumpStart. This nest is rumored to hold eggs of the rare Voltage Dragon – a species that hasn’t been seen in JumpStart for over 100 years! If Tangorra finds the eggs, he’ll be able to complete his potion and take all of the energy out of JumpStart. To protect JumpStart, the Secret Protection League Against Troublemakers (S.P.L.A.T.) is working to stop him and asking for your help! But who is this S.P.L.A.T.?
Let’s rewind a few years to explain. 110 years ago, troublemakers were causing problems all over JumpStart. You know those pesky Punk Punks that get in your way in AdventureLand and MarineLand? Well, they used to run loose all over JumpStart! With The Secret Protection League Against Troublemakers was created to put an end to their mischief and bring order back to MainStreet and DownTown! Jumpeez were recruited to work with S.P.L.A.T. to contain the mischievous furballs in AdventureLand and MarineLand, where brave explorers can train to combat them and stay safe.
Since the Punk Punk fiasco of 1900, JumpStart has been at peace and S.P.L.A.T. has not been needed. Until now, that is! With Tangorra racing to complete his potion, S.P.L.A.T. has been reactivated to help. The agency keeps the identities of its top agents hidden, so they can only communicate through the Secret Protection League Against Troublemakers Transmit Email Robotically (S.P.L.A.T.T.E.R). If you receive a message via S.P.L.A.T.T.E.R, please, follow the clues and help us save JumpStart!
John Chapman was born around 1775 in Massachusetts. He was raised on a small farm, where his favorite place to spend time was his father’s apple orchard. Chapman was trained as a nurseryman, or someone who takes care of an orchard, and around the turn of the nineteenth century, he began collecting apple seeds from cider presses, tools used to separate apples from their juice, in Pennsylvania. As Chapman traveled west and planted those seeds, he quickly became known as “Johnny Appleseed.”
