List of Contents
Bee has taken on the role of Worker Bee, so you Busy Bees out there can breeze through the May Day Maze!
First, grab the shovel toolbox on the ground and dig up the shrub that's blocking your way to a fruit.
Proceed to eat the Fruit and dig up the Tree straight ahead.
Jump over two Rivers and make you way as far up as you can, then jump over another river to the left and follow the path to get a tree branch.
Following the path, you'll jump over a River while heading to the right.
This new location gives you three different paths. Leave the first one for now and go down the third one for a tree branch and a stone, and down the second and middle path for a tree branch and a worn axe.
Jump back up to the spot where you can go down three paths, then backtrack over the River to the left and head for the Tree in the top left corner.
Cuting it down with the worn axe will make the Axe break. Dig up the tree stump to gain a tree branch and two fruits.
From the area you just got Items from, head down and back to the area where you could go down three different paths.
Go down the first one to get a tree branch, then eat a fruit to break the rock on this path and get an iron nugget.
Go all the way back to the tree you cut down in the top left, but head right, back the path you first entered from.
Once you jump over the river, head right at the first intersection to find 3 pieces of wood. A bit further down you'll find a rock, so eat a fruit and break it.
After you break the Rock, you will find another Fruit and two DIY Recipes, one for Flimsy Axe and one for a proper Axe.
Learn the Recipes if you don't already have them, then go ahead and craft the Axe!
Go out of the area with the DIY Workbench and head left, jumping over three rivers. Cut down the Tree on the other side to get two fruits.
Once you have the fruit, go up, jumping over one river on the way.
After that, you'll have to head back to the area with three paths and down the first path again.
Cut down the tree blocking your way to the final piece of fruit and head for the three trees at the top.
Cut down and dig up the three trees to get to Rover. Yay, you got through the maze!
To the left of where Rover is, you can find 4 Bell Vouchers behind a bush.
To get to the left side of the island and down to the 3 rocks waiting to be destroyed by your fruity powers, you have to dig up three shrubs behind the tree by the campfire.
Once they're gone, you can head left and then down the beach to find the last Treasure on the island.
Eat your 3 pieces of fruit and get the last 5 Bell vouchers. That's all you can get from this island, congratulations!
For 100 Miles and a call to Rescue Service center, you can reset the maze. It's not that expensive, so use it if you don't have enough fruits at the end!
Don't waste your time digging up the shrubs, you will not be able to take them home. The only things you can have back on your island are the rewards you get, which is Rover's Briefcase, and the Bell Vouchers.
|Availability||May 1, 2020 to May 7, 2020|
May Day will be held from May 1 to May 7, 2020. Anyone with an internet connection will be able to play the free update.
Once the event has started, go to Resident Services and talk to Tom Nook to get your May Day Ticket. You only get one, so don't throw it away!
Like like when you spend Nook Miles Tickets to go on Mystery Tours, you have to go to the Airport to use your May Day Ticket.
From there, you'll be flown to a special island available only for this event!
Everything in your inventory will be kept at the Airport when you take off, so you'll have to use the Tools and Materials you find in the Maze on the island to clear the event.
No buying Tools off Orville either, sneaky you, so pay careful attention to how you use the items at your disposal!
You'll need the Tools and Materials you find to clear the Maze, and you won't be able to bring anything other than Rover's Brief Case and the Bell Vouchers you find back from the May Day island, so focus on getting to Rover with 3 pieces of fruit left in your inventory.
If you ever get stuck in the maze, you can use the Rescue Services for 100 Nook Miles to go back to the port and reset the maze.
Once you clear the maze and get to Rover, he'll reward you with Rover's Briefcase, a unique May Day item.
He'll also hint that you seem to be destined to run into each other again sometime, so he might visit your island in future events!
Once you get back from the May Day island, you can find 2 letters in your mailbox.
One has the Briefcase, the other has whatever amount of Bell Vouchers you managed to find.
Once succesfully completing the maze, you can get one unique item, Rover's Briefcase, which can only be received on this event.
You can also get a max of 9 Bell Vouchers, which you can sell at Nook's Cranny for a total of 27,000 Bells.
If you don't have 3 pieces of fruit when you reach Rover, you'll only be able to get 4 Bell Vouchers, which is only 12,000 Bells worth.

Other than the items above, you cannot take other items home, such as the bushes on the island. They will be gone when you return to your island.
After connecting to the internet on the 1st of May or after, you will be able to get the May Day Ticket at Resident Services.
Isabelle will also mention this in her broadcast, so you can use that to check if you can access the event or not.
You can only get 1 May Day Ticket which can be redeemed for 1 tour. If you want to go on another May Day Tour, you can have another user play the event, or create one if you haven't yet.
If the date of your Switch doesn't match the date and time of the May Day event, you won't be able to participate. If you're a time traveller, you'll need to revert the date and time to one of the event dates.
If your Nintendo Switch has not connected to the Internet since before midnight on May 1, the May Day Event will not start, even if your in-game clock is on the correct date.
Although a notification for an Update will not occur, your Switch will still need to connect to the Internet to gain access to the event.
May Day honors International Workers' Day, which is celebrated annually on the 1st of May. The day celebrates the achievement of hard-working people all over the world.Times have been especially tough lately, so let's show our gratitude by participating in May Day!
