Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Just a friendly reminder that the Monorail Event is ending tomorrow! The Monorail Event will be leaving our games at 0800 GMT (4am EDT)..at least it’s scheduled too.
Most likely it will require an App Store update to remove, so it is possible you’ll get a little bit of “borrowed” time to earn more prizes. But remember if it happens: it’s borrowed time..and the game could force you to update at any time.
So let’s take a look at everything that ends tomorrow and what you’ll need to grab if you want it before it’s gone from the store…
REMEMBER…Make sure you unlock the Rail Yard if you want to continue earning Track AFTER the Event ends. Also, be sure to unlock ALL of the Recycling Depots (Metal, Plastic & Glass) so you’ll be able to earn even after the event is over. For details on the Rail Yard check out this post and for details about unlocking the Glass Depot (if you haven’t already) check out this post.
Here’s what’s leaving tomorrow..so grab what you can, while you can:
Act 3 Personal Prizes
REMEMBER the Rail Yard is the ONLY way to get tracks once the event ends.
Freemium Items in the Store
A couple of things we don’t know for 100% but we can assume…(based on previous events)
-Little Lisa’s Recycling Plant does not currently payout Blueprints. Right now it’s paying out Bells and Whistles (as it’s supposed to). There is no evidence that it will go to Blueprints when the Event ends, it’s more likely that this will convert to Cash and XP like just about every other building in town. So I don’t advise buying this because you think it’ll help speed up the Rail Yard for you.
-It does not look like you’ll be able to buy the Rail Yard after the Event is over. You’ll have to earn it as the prize BEFORE the Event ends. Now you may get some extra time for Bells and Whistles tomorrow (see the note at the top of the post about borrowed time)..but just remember you’ll have to get this BEFORE the Event ends in order to have it after the event is over.
-Again this will most likely be an App Store update to remove the Event. So it most likely won’t end exactly at 0800 GMT (4am EDT)…this has happened with previous events. So don’t panic if it doesn’t leave but don’t freak out if it does leave (or certain things are timed out). Remember it’s scheduled to end at 0800 GMT, so anything you get to play after that is a bonus and “borrowed time”.
