Pokemon Go Safari Zone Liverpool, Philadelphia, and St. Louis Have Been Rescheduled
Ticket holders can attend an in-person event or participate from wherever they are.
In early 2020, Niantic, the developer of Pokemon Go, announced three Safari Zone events for Liverpool, Philadelphia, and St. Louis that were supposed to take place during the first half of 2020. These events were later postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, Niantic has rescheduled all three events and given ticket holders the option to participate in person or from anywhere in the world.
To be especially clear, these Safari Zone events will only take place for players who purchased event tickets when they were originally available in 2020. In a news post, Niantic said, “No additional tickets will be sold for these events.”
Here are the new dates for the three events:
- Pokemon Go Safari Zone: Liverpool - October 15 to October 17 in Sefton Park
- Pokemon Go Safari Zone: Philadelphia - October 29 to October 31 in Fairmount Park
- Pokemon Go Safari Zone: St. Louis - November 12 to November 14 in Tower Grove Park
Again, these events will give ticket holders the option to participate in person, but they don’t have to attend in person to access each event’s in-game content. They can participate in these events from wherever they are in the world.
Niantic provided a list of the features ticket holders will be able to access during these events:
- “Featured Pokémon will be appearing in the wild and attracted to Incense.
- You’ll be able to complete event-exclusive Special Research and Field Research tasks.
- Incense activated during event hours will last for eight hours.
- Lure Modules activated during event hours will last for four hours.
- Special 2 km Eggs will be available.
- For Safari Zone Philadelphia ticket holders, take a snapshot for a surprise!”
If ticket holders want to participate in one of the in-person events, they’ll need to RSVP. Niantic said, “This is so that we have an accurate count of those who plan to attend an in-person event and to make sure we keep the event space safe for distanced gathering. Ticket holders will receive an email with more information on how to RSVP soon.”
Niantic also said it has removed the “City Explorer Pass” portion from each of these events. If players purchased the City Explorer Pass for one of these Safari Zone events, they’ll be refunded automatically. Niantic said it “will initiate all refunds by October 2, 2021.”
