This is a loooong post, containing all of the info about all of the daily Tunnel tasks.
A new Tunnel opens each day at 8 am GMT / 3 am EST.
The Tunnels are located in the Elves Cave.
Once the Elves Cave is placed, two characters can make toys.
Homer 4 hours – 2 Presents
Lisa 4 hours – 2 Presents
More characters will get Toy-making tasks that earns presents. They will unlock in the Tunnels.
You access the Tunnels by tapping on the top-right icon or on the Cave itself.
INFO on the current Cave problem.
Many are having issues accessing the Cave.
First try re-synching the game by visiting friends or go to Krustyland.
This usually works.
Hard close app.
Shut off and restart device.
Next step is a chore so I hope you won’t need it.
Delete/reinstall – do not do this if you play Anonymously, connect your game to Origin first.
Still no access to the cave? Only one option left.
Contact EA directly http://help.ea.com/en/contact-us/new/ and ask for a gameadvisor. Same login as the game.
Back to the Tunnels and tasks.
The Bonus timer does not start until you start the first of the three tasks for each Tunnel. If you complete the Tunnel within 24 hours you get a bonus: 100 presents. Even if you miss the bonus timer you will still get an Elf and the prize.
Unlocking Toymaking tasks are connected to specific Tunnels but the Tunnels do not have to be done in order, you can wait a few days and do the next Tunnel first.
Facade prizes will not be put in your inventory but directly on the building in question. To see Facades tap the building and slide. If the house menu is compacted and not showing Facades, tap “+” top-right.
