In the games[]

In Animal Crossing[]

The Lighthouse appears in Animal Crossing for the GameCube. In this game, it is located near the water and turns on when it begins to get dark. Once a year, during Tortimer's Vacation, Tortimer will ask the player to turn on the lighthouse every night between specific times for seven consecutive days. This is also the only time the inside of the Lighthouse can be seen. If the light is turned on each day, Tortimer will reward the player with a model of the Lighthouse. However, if the player misses even one day, he won't give any reward.
