Game Description
Ancient and wise, Kairos has a unique magic that can bend space and time. Every few days, the magic of the Chronolith and Time Claw combine, allowing Kairos to accelerate time in your park. He will await you on his perch.

Update.png Note: Kairos does not have a Twin Dragon form due to the way it is acquired.

How to Acquire

Kairos can only be acquired by summoning it. This can be accomplished by assembling three artifacts to upgrade the Perch of Kairos. The three artifacts are:

The artifacts are built by collecting seven time fragments for each artifact, totaling 21 time fragments. These time fragments can be acquired through the Dragon Track, through sending dragons on quests, or purchased with gems. A complete set of 21 fragments would cost Gem template.png 2,700.


Activate: Kairos can be activated once every four days using the "Activate" button. Upon activation, activities in the park that require time to complete will be accelerated by six hours.

  • The Colosseum, Gaia's cooldown timer, incomplete quests (started prior to completion of Kairos), and the ability to give gems to friends or collect party hats are not accelerated.

Summon Dragon: The "Summon Dragon" button will summon Kairos back to the Perch of Kairos. This option was changed from "Call" on November 20, 2012 but was changed back on January 22, 2014.

After reaching level 40, players can acquire Eternal Essence in order to level up Kairos.

Possible References

  • Kairos (καιρός) is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment (the supreme moment). The ancient Greeks had two words for time, chronos and kairos. While the former refers to chronological (see the The Chronolith) or sequential time, the latter signifies a time in between, a moment of indeterminate time in which something special happens.
  • Kairos breathes infinity symbols and triangles, which may represent time or the Greek symbol for change, Delta (Δ).
