Peking Express' iPad icon, the same one for Down the Hole!

Peking Express is an achievement that can be obtained on the iOS and Android versions of Plants vs. Zombies. It is worth 5 points on Game Center. This achievement is earned by quickly scrolling down on the achievements screen until the player meets the Chinese zombies. Getting a lower time than their last attempt changes the record time in the achievement description. The player does not need to get a specific time; they just need to get to the bottom, making it achievable from the beginning of the game.
