The Winter Carriage Ride is here! Craft goods for Carriage Rides with Friends and receive great gifts, including Baby Bottles, Water, Fertilizer, and Power after each Ride. In addition, you will be earning Silver Bells and Gold Bells for the Holiday Book. Complete all five of the Carriage Rides and you will also earn the Thawing Fountain, which gives you 75 FREE Water over time!
Note: Turn up the sound on your computer to enjoy the splendid sounds and music of the Winter Carriage Rides as you visit your favorite FarmVille 2 Characters’ farms, which include Walter, Barbara, Gus, and Marie!
If you are level 12 or higher, you will see the following pop-up. Click on the green “Place Luggage Cart” button to place the Cart on your farm.
Before you can host a Carriage Ride, you will need to build your Luggage Cart. Your first step is collecting Building Materials. You will need the following items to start building your Cart:
- Cart Wheels
- Metal Sheets
To collect Handbags, click on the “Post” button to post to your Facebook wall; you will get the parts when your Friends click on it, or when you click on a similar newsfeed post.
Click on the “Ask” button to send requests for Cart Wheels and Metal Sheets to your Neighbors. If you do not wish to wait for your Friends, you can skip any of these tasks for Farm Bucks.
Note: You can send a request for materials to your Friends every 18 hours.
Once you have collected the required items, click on the “Start Building” button at the bottom of the construction Menu.
Now that your Luggage Cart is almost complete, you will need to hire Friends to help you finish the job. The Luggage Cart requires four additional helpers, so click on the “Ask Friends” button to send some crew requests to your Friends. When they accept, you will see the spots in the Building Menu begin to fill. If you do not wish to wait for your Friends, click on the “Hire One” button to purchase crew members with Farm Bucks. Once you have successfully filled all four spots, click on the “Finish Building” button.
The Thawing Fountain can be earned after a total of five stages. In order to earn it, you will need to host 5 Carriage Rides for Friends. To prepare for a Carriage Ride, click on your Luggage Cart.
No Carriage Ride is complete without all of the fixings, so it’s time to start whipping up some delicious treats, goods, and supplies for your rides! From the Quest menu, click on the “Craft” button for the Recipe you wish to Craft and you will be sent to your Kitchen and/or Workshop.
As you Craft Recipes, you have a chance to earn Silver Bells for the Holiday Book! To learn more about the Holiday Book, Stage 4, please view our official guide: Holiday Book, Stage 4.

Earning Rewards with the Winter Carriage Ride:
You will earn rewards each time you host a Carriage Ride. The more Carriage Rides you host, the more rewards you will receive at the end of each ride. Below is a list of items you have a chance of earning:
- Baby Bottles
- Fine Saddles
The Winter Carriage Ride reward icons at the bottom of the Guest Menu indicate how many rides you have hosted. As you host rides, you will see the Winter Carriage Ride reward icons will be replaced by green check marks.
You can host up to a total of five Carriage Rides per Luggage Cart and once you have finished your final ride, you will earn the Thawing Fountain, which gives you 75 FREE Water over time! Click on the “Place and Share” button to place your Thawing Fountain on your farm.
Overtime, you can harvest 5 free Water from the Thawing Fountain for a total of 15 times (up to 75 Water). If you want to see how much time is left until you can harvest the Fountain again, hover your cursor over it (see image below). Once you have harvested all 75 Water from the Thawing Fountain, you will not be able to harvest it for more Water. After that time, the Thawing Fountain is yours to keep as a beautiful decoration!
