Pinata Parties are special events in Plants vs Zombies 2: It's About Time (GMXX Version). They can be played every 24 hours. After completing a Party, the player can whack open 3 piñatas of their choice, and these piñatas can contain various prizes inside them. Pinata Parties can also take place in any area of the game, and most commonly take place in Player's House.

Pinata Parties can be one of 5 different level types:

  • Normal
  • Special Delivery
  • Locked and Loaded
  • Save Our Seeds/Special Delivery

  • Don't lose X amount of plants
  • Kill X zombies in Y seconds
  • Spend no more than X sun
  • Never have more than X plants
  • Don't use any plant food

  • Don't plant on Dave's mold colonies
  • Survive without Lawnmowers


Each day there are 3 Pinata Parties for the player to play. They are separated by difficulty, and the harder the difficulty, the better the prizes the player gets.

  • Easy: Normal Pinata Party.
  • Medium: Normal Pinata Party with 1 goal.
  • Hard: Normal Pinata Party with 2 goals.
