  • This is the first episode to take place at night.
  • Moves levels were the second most abundant level type in this episode, consisting of level 96, 97, 98, and 110. Candy bombs are abundant in this episode, most likely because they were introduced in this episode.
  • This is the first episode that finishes with a moves level (110). The second is Milky Marina, 102 episodes later.
  • This episode is the first one to have more moves levels than ingredients levels (4 moves vs. 2 ingredient), since the latter's introduction.
  • Prior to the release of Cereal Sea, it had all moves levels that did not have a 4 in it (as other episodes has levels 4, 47, 114, and 144).
  • This is the first of five episodes (besides Dreamworld episodes) that take place at night, the others being Gingerbread Glade, Crunchy Castle, Holiday Hut, and Polkapalooza (Episode 28). However, in Flash, it takes place in the morning. Later on the game, episodes with this theme became more common.
  • For unknown reasons, the stories stop after this episode, and for a long time, until the release of Bonbon Brambles.
    • This episode is the last episode that was released when Candy Crush Saga was released to iOS and Android (14 November 2012), and that is a possible reason why King chose this particular episode to stop the stories.
  • This is one of the episodes where no characters appear on the background of mobile version. This is no longer the case as of now, as several episodes have this trait.
  • This was formerly the hardest episode in the game. Most levels used to be rated somewhat hard or higher, due to the nature of the candy bombs.
  • This is the first episode to contain a milestone level (level 100).
  • The background of this episode looks nearly like Bubblegum Blueshift in Candy Crush Soda Saga.
  • Every level in this episode was redesigned at least once.
