It's that time of year again...
Ahhhhh Spring Break. To the Americans it is a fantastic tradition and rite of passage that all young people should enjoy. To the rest of us, it's that thing we saw that one time on The OC where they went to Tijuana and half the characters nearly ended up dead, but then were fine, but then had a punch-up on a beach so all got arrested. And then the rich lawyer dad came and made everything right again. Like in every episode. Bliss.
So yes, it may be very much an American pastime, but I think we can all appreciate the idea of chilling out next to the water with a beer, BBQ and DJ (Australians, isn't that, like, what you do every day at home anyway?).
So for this reason, students from all around the Smeet World are meeting up at the beach to celebrate Spring Break! First up, you need to motivate the DJs (I'm still convinced that all they really do is push play anyway?) with Tacos and Jell-O Shots. Cos everyone knows that without Tacos and Jell-O Shots DJs are, frankly, absolute DIVAS.
Away from the stroppy DJs, the party-goers need refreshing too! In the tradition of making the party as ridiculous as possible a Beer Pyramid should do the job. So build one mate. Once you've got your party going, you will probably have the greatest pool party the world has ever seen on your hands, which is really quite something because I have seen the Wolf of Wall Street and consequently I know what goes on in the good ol' U.S. of A. We just don't get the weather for that sort of thing in Britain unfortunately, one sighting of a swimming costume and mother nature decides the plants need watering. Such is life...
Anyhoo, as a reward for completing the room you will get a minimum of 1,500,000 Fame Points plus a great Badge, and with our Add Ons in the Shop you can get up to 3,000,000 Fame Points! This room also introduces 'Uber' Generators - get the Uber version of a Generator in order to finish the room a lot faster! Very handy.
Finally, there is also a discount on the Surf Board and the Palm Tree for the first three days only: 50% until Sunday! Don't waste your time, go and get them and set your Spring Break Party on the path to LEGENDARY status!
What will the culmination of all your hard work reveal?
The last clue to the Smeet mystery is finally here - after all your hard work you can finally unravel all the answers and earn the nickname 'Sherlock' from your co-workers...
Take a wander on down to Party Plaza. It should provide you with some interesting clues that will send your investigation to its climax. Can you figure out what has been terrorising Smeet City?
Those who have all the clues will be able to find out on Sunday what the mystery is...but you better be quick, because the clues are going to disappear on Monday! So hurry up, because if you haven't got all of them this will remain a mystery to you forever!

The opening of one of the biggest Cafès of La Boca is close! What's it called? Cafè Tango, remember the name! First up you need to provide your hungry guests with delicious Argentinian steaks, the mere thought of them makes us hungry! Second, how could a Cafè named "Tango" even exist without a solid band churning out quality music? The dancers on the stage will turn the heat up with the help of some passionate musicians! Make sure the opening day of Café Tango is a sensational one and accept the praise of your guests!
In other news, there is something sticking out of the ground in the Green Oasis. Could it be another clue to the ongoing mystery in Smeet? You need an Archeology Hand Brush to clean it and see which animal it belongs to. Start examining it right now and earn 12,000 Fame Points! Are we getting closer to the solution of the riddle?
