Animal Crossing: New Horizons May Day Maze
Players will be able to visit and solve the May Day Maze in Animal Crossing: New Horizons from the 1st to the 7th. Those interested in partaking this activity will need to speak with Tom Nook at the Resident Services building. Nook will then direct you to head to the airport, where he has left a ticket for you. Head to the airport and speak with Orville, who will then let you use your ticket to visit the May Day Maze with the help of Wilbur, according to AllGamers.
Once you have arrived at the Animal Crossing: New Horizons May Day Maze, pick up the shovel that will be at the entrance when you step off of their pier. Dig up the bush to the left with the shovel to gain access to the fruit hidden behind it. Eat the fruit to allow your character to be able to dig up the tree that is blocking the path in front of you. Jump over the two holes that will then be in front of you. You can then go to the right to find some wood.
Players will want to explore all of the possible paths the Animal Crossing: New Horizons May Day Maze has to offer, as they will be able to acquire branches, stones, and wood pieces found on the ground throughout the area. Be careful, though, as there are holes that you will have to jump over to get to certain areas.
The next item you need to obtain is the worn axe which can be found to the right of the main path following the tree you cut down to enter. Jump over the center hole to find a tree branch and the worn axe. Go towards the tree that is to the left of the area where you found the worn axe and cut it down to find two pieces of fruit. Go towards the left-hand corner of the area and break the rock blocking where an iron nugget can be picked up.
You can then go towards the right of where you found the worn axe and head towards the bottom right corner. Eat a peach and then use the shovel to dig up the rock blocking this path in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons May Day Maze. Eat a peach to get energy and then dig up the tree with the shovel to gain access to the DIY Workbench.
You can use this DIY Workbench in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons May Day Maze to craft a flimsy axe which can then upgraded to a regular axe. This regular axe can then be used to cut down the rest of the trees that are blocking your way to the end of the Animal Crossing: New Horizons May Day Maze. Go to the top left corner and cut down the tree to find a tree branch and two more peaches. Use the rest of your peaches to cut down the three trees at the top of the area. You will then be able to head towards the right and speak with Rover to get his briefcase and finish this activity.
It is important to note that players can only visit this area once a day from the 1st to the 7th.
