Zootopia is a developer-made-sponsored event sponsored by Zootopia. The event ran from February 11, 2016 through March 12, 2016 and the game itself was a map developed by Maelstronomer. When the event started, the game had bugs, however, they were later fixed. After the finishing day of this event, thanks to requests from fans, the game stayed up, ROBLOX forced the creator to remove everything from Zootopia including the music. The game is currently known as Explore the City & Build.

The event received generally mixed to positive reception as people were stating. It is bad, because it is another developer-made sponsored event. However, there are people stating it is a good event due to the objectives being different than most events and the place being well-designed and looking like there was a lot of effort put forth. Many people also claim that this is a "step forward" in improving ROBLOX events (until the KCA event came forth).
After the game became Explore the City & Build, some people began hating the game as it's now just a bland ROBLOX place that has nothing in it.
More criticism kept coming in from the community when a few people were criticizing Roblox of appealing to the furry fandom, which was negatively looked down by a few. The reason why many users thought this was is because the sponsor had characters from the movie being Anthropomorphic animals with human-like postures, with many the items from the event being Anthropomorphic hats for your Roblox avatar.
- This is the second developer event that uses a place made specifically for the event. The former being BLOXtober 2015.
- Though in BLOXtober, there were three places with one made specifically for the event.
- This is also the first developer-made sponsored event that requires the player to complete quests and objectives rather than searching or finding the item(s).
- After the event ended, Maelstronomer had to remove everything Zootopia related, due to the fact that the sponsorship was over and people could still buy these things.
