Tour of Watopia is back… again! With so many new people coming to Zwift this time of year, what better way to start their time on Zwift than having them hit the XP jackpot?
Tour of Watopia is the tour that levels you up faster. The more you ride, the more you level up! This year, we are also bringing you Tour of Watopia on-demand, allowing you the flexibility to ride on your own time!
To make sure you can participate in Tour of Watopia, please make sure your Zwift version is up to date. You can learn more about checking your Zwift version here.
During Tour of Watopia, you will earn double XP, taking you to the next level faster. You will only get double XP the first time you complete a route within the stage, instead of everytime you ride a route. In order to maximize your XP, complete all of the routes within a stage. You will know that you have completed any particular route by the “Completed” marker shown on the in-game tracker. During a ride where you are earning double XP, the XP indicator will be yellow and show that you are receiving a higher amount. If you already completed that route and decide to ride it again, the XP indicator will not show the higher XP amount.
There will be five stages for Tour of Watopia:
- Stage 1: October 2, 2023 @ 17:00 UTC - October 9, 2023 @ 04:00 UTC
- Stage 2: October 9, 2023 @ 05:00 UTC - October 16, 2023 @ 04:00 UTC
