Ravenwood Fair Facebook Guide: Tips, tricks, hints, strategies, cheats and tricks

Updated on November 29, 2010

Ravenwood Fair is a brand new Facebook game by LOLApps, makers of Critter Island, that combines the amusement park genre of Facebook game, with exploration-themed role playing games and and business games to create an all-new, extra in-depth gaming experience, and to date, it has been enormously popular, attracting just under 1,000,000 players in just under a week since it was released. In this game, you chop down scary trees in the forest, build your own eateries, attractions and other 'fun' items, and visit your friends' parks as well. Make money, earn items such as wood and mushrooms, and build your fairground to epic proportions! 

The following tips and tricks will make it easier to earn money, mushrooms, experience, items, and overall just to have a lot of fun in the game.

To earn profits faster and allow your visitors faster access to all of your attractions, move all of your attractions so that they are closer together. You can even do this with attractions that are already built, but that you have to chop down scary trees to access - just chop down the trees, clear the thorns or whatever you have to clear, then when you clear the thorns off, just move the attraction so that it's closer to the center of the fair, where the visitors enter the fair. The smaller the distance your visitors have to walk, the faster they can get to all of the attractions, and thus the more money they can spend.

More fun = more visitors = more money.

There is a number of games already built in your fair that can earn you money, but are covered by thorns and hidden by scary trees, so once you chop down the scary trees and make it to the games, you can de-thorn them, and voila, you have yourself a free game. .

Go visit your neighbors' fairs. You'll get energy boosts and bonus money for doing so (and for responding to their feeds), and you'll earn extra experience points for playing with their attractions. Some of their attractions can be played with without even using any energy points to do so, so play with those.


Talk to your visitors when you see them. Sometimes they'll just talk fluff, but it's still entertaining to talk to your visitors, just like talking to the townspeople in an RPG, just to hear what they say. Some of them will even drop inside jokes, like a reference to the millennial fair in Chrono Trigger. Other times, visitors will tell you what they really want to see at the fair (hint hint - use this to figure out what to build at the fair).

Don't be afraid to spend your mushrooms on energy boosters. This is one of the few energy-based games where energy can be bought with a free currency, and you can earn plenty of mushrooms simply from chopping down scary trees. So when you want to splurge on energy, go for it.

If you see one of your visitors shaking, click on them. They're scared, and if you click on them and calm them down, they will no longer be scared, and instead be ready to start spending money at the fair again.

If you want to figure out what's best to build early on, look at the price of whatever buildings and/or games you can choose from, and compare price to both the fun and profit factors. One of the best things to build is a sweet corn stand. Build a lot of cheap attractions to start off with, and you'll make a lot of money.

One of the quickest ways to earn money and experience (and to get a sense of what direction you want to take your fair in) is to concentrate on beating various quests. You'll get huge bonuses for doing quests, and the tasks that you are trying to complete, will help your fair anyways.

That's it for now. Got more tips? Post them in comments!

      In case anybody hasn't worked it out, don't kill the bad guys.

      When you get them jumping out of a bush just ignore them. They don't actually do anything, I think maybe fun goes down a little and visitors get scared more often but that's not too much of an inconvenience.

      I've worked out that YOU CAN NEVER GET TWO AT ONCE. It's best just to leave it there and save your energy for productive stuff instead of wasting it on the bad guys every time they pop out of a tree (which is like every 2nd tree it seems).

      They are a pain as sometimes they stop you comforting a visitor or they're in the way of a tree in which case just give him 1 hit and he'll probably let you start comforting people again.

      how can i use my mushroom to exchange energy?

    • profile image

      Kelli Stenger 6 years ago

      Mindy - go to the store and click on the Packs tab. From there you can trade in your mushrooms for a little bit of energy.

      Valerie - what are you stuck on on level 6?

      My question is this... in the quest Princess' Problems... where is the wonder supposed to be? It says the North but are you to just clear any part up there and put a wonder on it? Thanks

    • profile image

      cyndi 6 years ago

      In answer to Kelli - there is a thunder thing at the top. You just have to clear a path to it and then dethorn it. That will get you past that part. Then you have to be level 15 to build the inn.

      Actually you can get numerous baddies at once, I've had up to 4. However, they do come out less if you leave one or two about.

      Anybody have a list of what 'building materials' are needed for each building? Anybody know how many items the great pumpkin house takes? I don't want to buy it if I'm going to need a million sugar skulls and pumpkins...

      Pumpkin house takes about 20 pumpkins. I don't know how much longer it lasting. However they are supposed to bring gifting back tomorrow evening. Along with that you'll be able to invite neighbors etc.

      Sarah 6 years ago

      Oh I just worked out this one - HEAPS OF ENERGY AND NOTHING TO DO WITH IT? Pick up protectors and put them back down in the same spot so that they need recharging and you get heaps of special items, xp and coins :)

      I end up with heaps of energy once all of my trees are cleared, then I run out of money, then there's nothing I can do and I have all this energy to use, why not get some special items!

      I can't get pumpkin pie and leaves. Also everytime I try to send something to a friend, the screen is behind the game screen and I can't access it. HELP !!

    • profile image

      mark 6 years ago

      @chris pimpkin pie and leaves are gift only items, your friends have to gift them to you, friends who have below a certain number of friends are only able to gift one or the other, not both, above a certain number of friends both are unlocked - get more friends... use the gamefriendfinder application if neccesary, just make sure you send your friend requests a message telling them which game you're requesting for cos the app sends a blank fr - lots of cyber criminals out there, lots of people don't accept blank fr.

      wendie skulls and pumpkins were like leaves and pumpkin pie are now, they briefly changed it so they'd drop in game but were rare, but now they're gone totally, they were seasonal content for the hallowe'en stuff, how that means we get rid of the hallowe'en quests that are still waiting to be completed I don't know, I still have yet to complete one...

      @robyn vitalin can be gifted by anybody, it does drop in game but it is rare. I find it drops more often when visiting friends but it's still pretty rare.

      @krysta get more friends...

      @paula the trees 'try to take back the forest' - you get a handful regrow every time you clear all the standing trees, there can be roots left and trees will still regrow, you also get some regrow every few hours anyway, regrowth happens more often the fewer trees you have.

      if you want to make sure an area stays tree free cover it with something, like a path or turf but you do want to leave some areas available for regrowth, you're going to need a LOT of trees to cut down unless you have beaucoup friends.

      Barbara, you may need to update to the latest flash player. It may or may not help. Some people have trouble loading it even with the latest flash player.

      shinichi, you can unlock the thunderbox on the north side by completing quest. I think I was finally able to unlock it at level 13. Be sure to click on the envelope that drops on Ravenwood and it will tell you when you can unlock it.

      Asra and Snake: Put a protector nearby, and make sure you have some vitalin. The vitalin will shoot him!

      For those who can't dethorn things, it's because they are quest-related and you have to be on that quest before you can dethorn it.

      @ Mary if you go to the shoppe and then the special tab, you can buy the Sleeping potion and once you use it, trees will grow anywhere, wheres there are no buildings, games or decorations :)
