Terwilliger Prize Guide: Act 3, Prize 1…Springfield PD Blimp

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Harvest Time in Springfield and the Terwilliger’s have returned to Springfield to unleash Mutant Vegetables on us!  In the Third Act of the Terwilliger Event you’ll unlock Dame Judith Underdunk, unlock Opera Krusty & try not to go crazy collecting all sorts of stuff to craft prizes in Springfield!

This Event is broken up into 3 Acts, with each Act containing part of the story.  To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act.  Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event.  For the third Act you’re tasked with collecting Music Notes!  The first Act 3 prize awarded at 1,050 ico_terwilligers_musicnotes_lg is the Springfield PD Blimp, a new decoration for your Springfield!


So let’s take a closer look at this blimp and just what happens when you unlock in  in your Springfield.

Once you’ve collected 1,050 ico_terwilligers_musicnotes_lg  you’ll automatically be awarded the blimp and you’ll see this message popup:


You’ll have the option to place the blimp immediately or store it in your inventory.  If you choose to store it remember you’ll have to go in to retrieve it:




And that’s really it to the first prize.  There’s no questline, no dialogue, nothing telling you to place it in your Springfield to earn more ico_terwilligers_musicnotes_lg.  Just win the prize and that’s it.

Here are some quick facts about the Blimp:


Size: 3×3
Conform-O-Meter Impact: Obedience +10
Where Can I Place It?: Grass/Pavement/Boardwalk/Beach
Bonus%: Nope.  This blimp does not offer any bonus %
What Does it Do?: Nothing really.  It’s just a decoration for Springfield.

What’s Next?
Well there are two prizes after the Blimp, DNA and Theater Masks.  I’m not going to do separate posts about them as it’s pretty basic.  Once you unlock them it will add more DNA and Masks to your Crafting Totals.  (Remember crafting totals can be found at the top of your event hub…Trophy Icon with the knives bottom right.  The totals will be in the top right of the event hub)

Here’s a quick breakdown…

ico_stor_terwilligers_dna_200 Awarded at 1,550 ico_terwilligers_musicnotes_lg.  This will add 200 DNA to your total DNA count (found in the Event Hub).  This is not a tangible item for Springfield, it’s just 200 DNA added to your total on hand.

ico_stor_terwilligers_theatremask_200 Awarded at 2,100 ico_terwilligers_musicnotes_lg.  This will add 200 Theater masks to your total Mask count (found in the Event Hub).  This is not a tangible item for Springfield, it’s just 200 Theater masks added to your total on hand.

Next Tangible Prize for Springfield…

unlock_krusty_opera Opera Krusty awarded at 4,200 ico_terwilligers_musicnotes_lg.  This will be the next prize we cover in a prize rundown post.

So that my friends is the full breakdown of the Springfield PD Blimp!

  1. I wish we had the option to unmoor it from time to time!

    I put mine behind the prison from the superheroes event, to keep an eye out for any escapees. 😉

  2. Think it was overlooked in the “what does it do” part, that when you tap it, it lights up and a police siren sounds.

  3. Fortunately this fit perfectly in my existing SPD compound, right next to the quadcopter facility. Best part is the unmistakable “Springfield Police Dept” sign written on it, something I’ve always wished the actual police station building had to distinguish itself.


  4. Hi! What will happen to the “Craft items” once the act 3 finishes? Will there be an act 4? The thing is I’m saving for the Farmer’s market, but I’m still way too far from getting it. Should I use my fertiliser and corn on some other thing or is it going to stay a little longer?

  5. I love balloons so happy with this floating about in my town : )

  6. Any idea what the giant (larger than a car) grasshopper is? Is it from an old event, a hacked game?

  7. The blimp is… nice. That’s about all I can say about it.

  8. The Problem Child

    I love the Blimp’s animation when you tap it.

  9. I wish it would have been higher in the air so we could make it look like it was flying high above Springfield.

  10. I like it fits well in my dystopian zenith city and floats between the scyscrapers, but do they had to put that ugly banner on it?!

  11. Just noticed the notes award changed back to 5

    I seem to have quite a good glitch during this event. Whilst playing on my iPad, If I unlock one of the prizes on the prize track it also unlocks again when I play on my phone. (So I get 200 theatre masks, then another 200 when I play in my phone!)

    I am sorta surprised they didn’t give us the blimp Side Show Bob held the kids hostage inside of. I think that would have cute to have with Lisa’s message running around the marquee on it.
