Farm bell vouchers in Animal Crossing New Horizons May Day event

According to VG24x7, the studio has rolled out new bell vouchers that can be farmed with the latest event. The new maze will see allow you to pick 10 Bell vouchers that can be exchanged for Animal Crossing currency. Players can easily pick up 30K bells from this event, only if they can solve the maze.

The studio has limited the new maze for veteran players, who have already finished last year’s event. However, new players will have to first finish the previous year’s maze. The studio hasn’t clarified whether newer players will get the chance to attempt the latest maze just yet.

Speak with Wilbur to pick up tools and equipment, and he will also offer hints about the maze. You can also call upon the emergency service if you feel lost inside the maze. This will reset the entire event and throw you at the starting line again.

Here is how you can solve the new maze

First up, use your shovel to dig a shrub to find one fruit. Consume the fruit, as it will allow you to remove the tree that is blocking the road. Pick everything you find, and head towards the left region. Dig the shrub, and jump over the water pit to find a workbench that you can’t use just yet.

Use the fruit to break trees and any rock in the area to collect softwood, fruit, and other vital items. Go back to the center area from where you entered the maze and dig up rocks on the right side. Use the fruit to dig up the tree to find more wood and fruit, and head back to the water pit and use the fruit to decimate the tree that blocks your path.

In the new area, you have to farm out the trees and also uncover rocks. Players have to ensure that they pick up 4 types of wood from each section to craft a ladder on the crafting bench you saw earlier. Ensure you farm out every shrub and rocks that will offer you resources.

Stage 2 of the Maze

This will be the final stage of the maze and probably the most crucial one. You have to make use of your resources adequately in order to finish the maze. Use the ladder to pick up the worn-out ax that is sitting on the cliff next to the workbench. This ax can only takedown one tree, and you would need to use it once.

This weapon cannot be used multiple times, and you need it to chop down a specific tree. Head back to the right-hand side of the maze, hop over the water pits and find the tree below that is blocking the path. You need to chop this particular tree to uncover a new cliff that will grant you 2 fruits.

Now pick up the fruits from the cliff and head back to the workbench area. You will find 2 more trees that are blocking the path, use the fruit to chop them down. You will find another cliff that will contain another shrub that will offer 3 more fruits for you to use. Climb down and follow the path to find another shrub that you must dig.

Now hop over a water pit to find a tree blocking your path again. Use your fruit to once again chop the tree and climb the last remaining cliff to complete the maze. You will find Rover on the cliff and if you interact with him, then you have successfully completed the maze.

Now run along the beach to the southern section to find three more rocks blocking your path to five Voucher tokens. Use your remaining fruit to dig out the rocks and shrub and pick up the vouchers, and hop over the water pit to once again find yourself at the start.

These vouchers cannot be used directly, as you need to speak with Wilbur, and he will promise you to mail these vouchers. Wilbur will empty out your inventory along with vouchers as you exit the event.
