Take your Sims where they've never been before: on a family vacation. Whether they've been working hard or livin' large, going downtown or partying down, your Sims deserve a break. From a sun-drenched beach to a snow-filled wonderland to a forest campground, Vacation Island offers a wide range of fun new activities for your Sims. Take a spin on a carousel or a wild ride on a snow slide, build a snowman or a sandcastle, bring home all sorts of cool new souvenirs and much more. All-new interactions between parents and children ensure an equal chance for merriment or mayhem, which means that your Sims vacation is sure to be a memorable one... one way or another. Pack up the whole family for the vacation of a lifetime, Sims style.
There seems to be no end of expansion packs for the Sims, the latest sees the inhabitants of Simsville leave the confines of their neighbourhood for the equally insular Vacation Island, it's time the Sims had a well-earned holiday.
There are three "areas" for the Sims to try out--alpine, forest and beach--and each has different locations with either luxury or budget accommodation. In the more exclusive parts of the island you will find your Sims get to stay at classy ski lodges or beach-side condos, whereas on the other parts of the atoll the lodging is more a "back to basics", tents and igloos kind of set up.
Accessing the island is just like going on a date, you call the taxi company and hand over 500 simoleons and you are off. You can either opt for a family holiday (the entire household packs their bags) or invite a friend. Then you simply choose your destination, kick back and enjoy.
Once on holiday everything is geared towards having fun. There are new activities such as volleyball, snowboarding, water balloon fights and an amusement arcade to up your Sims' fun-o-meter, as well as beds, toilet facilities and a buffet bar. But just like any holiday this idyllic getaway comes at a price.
You can book in for a night and every day you miss checkout you are charged for another night you also have to shell out for the buffet bar, so make sure you have the cash to enjoy yourself. As well as the bare essentials (food, sleep) you also pay for the some of the activities but the pay-off here is that you can win prize tokens which you then exchange for mementoes (such as crystal skulls) of your trip.
Sims on Holiday is basically an expansion of the Sims universe. New areas, new items, new interaction and characters, but not a new game. It has its problems, load times are still interminably long and it's quite buggy and you do wonder how long Maxis is going to flog this particular horse. If you love The Sims, then this is a worthy add-on to a great game, if you don't then no amount of volleyball, shark costumes and sand in your sandwiches is going to change you mind.--Felicity Winner

Rather than hot date just taking 2 people to downtown you can now take the whole family.
You can visit a winter wonderland - have snowball fights, take a snow slide ride, show off you snowboarding tricks on the half-pipe, sleep in an igloo and even be entertained by a yeti.
Take a sunny beach break - play volleyball(up to 8 sims), take a splash down the slide into a refreshing pool, sleep in a cosy hotel, and let your kids be entertained by a beach shark.
Or even rest in the deseted forest (haha) - Like you'll rest when you can go fishing, sleep in a tent, play archery, hire metal detectors an dbe entertained by the one and only ROBIN HOOD!
If you have any questions just ask the Holiday Director who is available in all scenarios.
It is extremely fun building your own holiday venues but when clearing out all old stuff DO NOT delete the phone or your sims will be stuck on holiday forever. You cannot seem to buy them.
You can play arcade games and win prize tokens - swap your prize tokens for gifts and souvenirs. You can even buy souvenir shelves to store all your holiday memorabilia on.
You can send postcards to your neighbours.
You can have picnics and eat off the ALL U CAN EAT BUFFET.
Stay in a ski lodge, summer hotel or wooden huts.
The hotels actually work as hotels and you cannot sleep in the beds unless you check in.
This game really is worth buying and when added with hot date you get the oppurtunity to take a family break with the kids or take a night out from them in downtown.
Pity you can't hire babysitters for the kids and see how rebellious they can be.
A definite must have for all sims fanatics.
BEWARE very addictive. The time flies by when you are playing!!
Like The Hot Date downtown, Vacation Island will have up to ten new lots that players can build vacation resorts on. Some lots are winter themed, some are beach themed, and some are forest themed.
The Sims Vacation allows all-new social interactions for adults and their children and interactions children can have with each other. Unlike Hot Date, Vacation allows the entire family to go to a new location. But watch out, if you don't take care of the kids, they may cause enough mayhem to end the vacation early.
Just check in and let the friendly, attentive staff see to your every need. Food buffet, luxurious beds and state of the art bathrooms are all included. Will you be staying just a couple of days, or all week? There are packages for every budget. Just make sure to lock your doors...you never know who might want to pick your pocket....
After emailing maxis i have found the New Objects are:
Shoot a Clown
Mechanical Claw game
personally i cannot wait to be the owner of this game... definately one to watch out for, i have owned all the previous expansions...whata game
