Pumpkinshadow Castle

Pumpkinshadow Castle

Halloween is here! You know what that means. It’s time to stock up on candy and treats and get ready for the neighbor-kids to come round in their costumes. They’ll be knocking down the exquisite doors of Mystery Manor before too long. And Pumpkinshadow Castle is all ready for us to visit.

Pumpkinshadow Castle returns for Halloween this year.

You will have to complete the Witch’s Athenaeum to get this quest string.

You need to grow Pumpkinshadow Castle from a little sprout in the lower right corner of your first floor. It will be locked until you complete the quest Rumble in the Pumpkin Field. This is number 4 of the second quest string. Then you will begin to grow your pumpkin at quest 5 by following the listed steps.

I do not have the “Secrets of the Castle”quest on the right side of my screen. I have put in a ticket, but am curious if others received the quest or not.


    Support has responded that the Secrets of the Castle quest has not been offered this year.

Diane heger

Where is the Halloween event?.

Debra Deliere

Do you have to do the quests for pumpkin shadow castle in order or do you have to finish the first one before you can start the second, etc.? I have already done many of the things since I’ve been able to explore the witch’s atheneum but I don’t see where they’ve been kept track of. I just found out about the sprout but I don’t know how long it’s been there. I first opened the atheneum last year. Also why do I keep getting the ogham runes quest over and over? Do you have to finish it during one full moon?


    You have to do the Halloween quests in order. I get ogham runes quest also. I think there are 10 or so steps in that quest, and then it starts over. I stopped doing them a long time ago.


      It’s the Anubis (sp?) Tomb quest string if you want to look it up.


Just finished. What a letdown! Not even an acknowledgement that the quest was completed. 😞


How do we put in a ticket now? My GI button on top right side does NOT open when I click on it!


    You have to go to the game-insight website. The in game bottom was disabled because it did not comply with GDPR. They opted not to fix that.


Last year I had to put in a ticket to get the right side Event Secrets of the Castle and it was sent to my game. It has NOT appeared this year either! Should we already have it or is there a specific quest that makes it appear?


Seems like this quest is a little hard I have done all this but still nothing


Anyone know how I can get enough scythes to banish scarecrows need 16!


    Search rooms using the Turtle of Luck or search the Collections Table to see if one of them gives the weapons.

Marilyn Rodger

Where can I find White Powder for Halloween makeup collection


    Either searching the room of from one of the Halloween Roamers. I’m pretty sure it’s a room search. If you’re on quest 15 it tells you which room to search for it.


I do not have the secrets of the castle quest on the right side.
I have finished all the Halloween left hand quests except the very last one for pumpkinshadow. Do I need to finish before it shows up?


    Send a ticket. I think you should have it. I haven’t gotten very far in the quest string but I think someone commented on when it appears.


      After nearly 2 weeks the quest was sent to me!


    I have Pumpkinshadow Castle open now and do not have the quest either. I opened a ticket!

      LaDonna LDaylily

      I opened the castle last year and just reopened. I don’t have the right side quest, but I think I did it last year. Will that make a difference?


        I was wrong, I didn’t do it last year just the one with spooky tree. I have charged all but one collection 5 Times. Are they supposed to offer it this year?

Cindy Ison

To grow your pumpkin, you can banish Halloweenie and Halloween Ghost in your Manor, but not your friends’ manors. These snatchins don’t give the same gifts in friends’ manors as your Manor.


    Thanks, I added that on the quest page where it tells you to banish them.


I have battled and defeated Willie in the pumpkin field 4 times to complete the rumble in the pumpkin field quest and I can’t get the sprout to unlock? I played in the pumpkin field 4 times too. Can you tell me how to complete this quest.


    The same thing happed to me. I can’t get the sprout to unlock…..


Where can I find or buy the dark ocular to access spirit/ghost mode! Help! I can only find them in one collection.


    Yes, only Alice’s Friends gives 40 Dark Oculars. Also, until the update today you could get some from banishing the Halloween Roamers.


One of the quest for the pumpkin shadow castle is to charge collection 542, in order to do that you have to banish bartenders, strippers, Igor’s and Eurydice… that’s only 4 but the collection (of course) is for five pieces, do you know how to get the 5th piece? I have banished stripper, a bartender, and Igor, and a Eurydice and now when I click on an each one of those it’s not showing that you are able to find a collection piece from them any longer. I’m not sure how to get that 5th piece for the collection ?


The Secrets of the Castle right side icon, does that not show up until you have built the castle? I currently have no right side Halloween icons. I’ve collected the one for banishing the roamers 55 times. And collected one for the anthaneum I think.


How do I get pumpkin cocktail to drop?


How do we get ghost mode in Pumpkinshadow Castle. I did 3x in Night Mode but Ghost will not come into the castle. Is there something I need to from a previous quest. I’ve searched the castle a number of times and no luck.


    I am still trying to get all 3 myself. I made sure I had no ghosts in the main part of my manor so the chances would be better.


      I’ve purchased 5 chests for keys yet have only gotten one ghost mode. I got rid of all ghost modes in the other rooms. Any suggestions?


Where do I get keys to search Pumpkinshadow Castle? I am on quest 14 with no keys and need ghost in castle 3x. I can’t get that mode in the castle and don’t see how to get keys for the castle. I have already completed the right hand quest and used up the keys received as the reward.


    Banish the Roamers for the page: Halloweenie, Dolly and the Halloween Ghost. Or you can buy a chest with 150 keys for 50 Diamonds.


I have defeted willie three times and played the field , but the guest rumble the pumpking field doesn’t open ? Why not ?


For the right side Trick or Treat quest, anybody know what is the Spooky Tree that’s included as part of the reward?


    It appears in the list of furniture in the Japanese garden. Once you place it, it reduces the requisites needed to enter the garden by 30% and useful for zodiac mode as well as special events modes.


    If you have the Sakura tree placed you will not want to use the spooky tree, you will not get your daily diamond??


      where is the spooky tree? which room?


        Spooky tree is in the Japanese Garden.


Can someone tell me how to get the things I need for sylvanias tears collection 364? It tells me I need to charge it but not how to get them? I’ve looked for clues in past years (flower fairies) but I don’t think that’s it?


    What quest are you on? I don’t even see one to charge this collection.


How do I get living book to appear in my manor?


My Pumpkin Castle Quest string is completely different from what is listed above. Does anyone have a different string to complete?


    Mine are diff too.ive completed like 10-13 quests already.now can’t find half eaten bread in kitchen.my pumpkin says finish rumble in the pumpkin field to open pumpkin castle.
    I’ve already opened this room in previous years.


      Do your quests have the ghost symbol on them? Did you open this room last year? The update notes said there are 70 new quests. Not sure if they count those for all 3 quest strings or just added since last year. I’ve seen some new quests in the Pumpkinshadow Castle. Remember, we get this information from other players. Anyone that keeps track of the quest strings can email them to me.


      Ok, the quests you are working on are for the Lord of Despair.


    I read through the different Halloween quests.looks like we may have to finish the witches room quest line first.im on like quest 8.


    I do think since you finished this last year you will have to do the building part of the castle and then get different quests, new ones. I’m not sure how to post this on the page yet as I don’t have a quest string. I didn’t even get to the sprout last year. What I posted is from last year.

Can I trade with Halloween Ghosties etc in my own Manor, or Friends only
