Warmth and the smell of baking cheese biscuits draw mice into this charming little gumdrop house, where they will find a present, waiting just for them. The mice unwrap the present, to find, in place of the cheese biscuits, a mouse-sized parachute. Once the mouse puts on the parachute, a burst of reverse Santa magic shoots it out the chimney, into the air to a land far away. Being flung into the air isn't what the mouse had on its list, but it's the thought that counts.

The Gingerbread House Surprise is a Tactical weapon available only through crafting. After the release of Gingerbread House Plans, the trap was almost immediately crafted by several individuals as the ingredients had been readily available for the entirety of The Great Winter Hunt '09 festive event.

The Gingerbread House Surprise has stats comparable to the Mutated Venus Mouse Trap. It has slightly reduced power and power bonus, but a higher attraction bonus. Both weapons have the same luck rating. However, the Gingerbread House Surprise has an Über Fresh cheese effect, the freshest of any weapon released so far.
