All limited time content for Holidays 2023 is accessible in restaurants with the North Pole Setting, chosen in the Headquarters.
Every North Pole floorplan consists of a separate dining area and kitchen area, divided by a snowy corridor which customers cannot enter/cross. The setting also comes pre-installed with unique map features: Elf Houses and Holiday Grabbers/Convyors.
Players begin all runs with the Christmas Rush Card.
|Shop offers conveyors every day
Helps you avoid dashing through the snow
|A Conveyor Blueprint will also be offered during decoration days.
The North Pole also introduces Elf Houses (located on either side of the restaurant) which automatically perform various actions for players. There are input and output Houses, determined by the direction of the adjacent Grabber. Each input is linked to an output, predetermined by the seed and will remain the same throughout the run.
In order to use the Houses, players may either manually place items onto an input Grabber, or move an Appliance or Ingredient Provider in front of the Grabber during the Preparation Phase. It will then automatically transfer items or ingredients to the House.
Elf Houses can Chop, Cook, and Knead items, as well as Fill Coffee and Clean plates, each at 5x speed. They do not Portion or Discard. Upon receiving an item, a House will perform all possible actions on it in turn. The completed item is then teleported its corresponding output House, where it will appear on the Grabber.
For items which can be prepared in multiple ways, the House prioritizes over , and over , which is relevant to the following ingredients:
However, Elf Houses will also perform each sequence of steps above, in-order, as many times as possible to take a recipe to its final stage (as seen with Flour above). For instance:
Each Elf House can store a single item at a time. If this space is occupied, the House will not accept new items until the output is cleared, and no items will be voided. Cookable items left in a House (e.g. while the output is blocked) will never burn. If an input House receives an item which cannot be interacted with, it is immediately teleported to the output House.
Holiday Grabbers/Conveyors are special Grabbers and Conveyors that transfer items on them at a faster rate than a regular Grabbers/Conveyors and will preserve any item on them overnight (similar to a Freezers), but players are unable to move, replace, or interact with them during the preparation phase.
Each Elf House will have a Holiday Grabber attached to it, either pushing an item into it or pulling out of it, and a line of of Holiday Grabber and Holiday Conveyors will spawn outside in a 'C' shape.
Players cannot purchase these 'holiday grabbers/conveyors' during a run. Any Grabbers or Conveyors purchased from the shop will be their regular version. Additionally, items that are 'outside' but not on a Holiday Grabbers/Conveyors will not be preserved overnight.
