Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
The Springfield Heights expansion round 2 has hit Springfield! And of course you know an all new expansion means all new premium items! Now I know you may be trying to decide if the Springfield Heights items are worth YOUR donuts, but don’t sweat it! We’re here to tell you what’s worth the donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add the Opera House to YOUR Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this unique musical theater to YOUR Springfield!

-Earns a ton of Real Estate Points when purchased

-Has short 1 part questline
-Unlocks a 4hr job for Marge (earns $260,70xp)
-Expensive for not coming with a character
-Building pays out every 2hrs, which can be a hard time to maximize earnings
-Large building, can be hard to fit in Springfield (or SH)
I really like that EA has stepped it up a bit with the SH premium items. Unlock the previous releases this one has a short questline AND a character task. Two good selling features. However, I still think this one is overpriced. 150 donuts is really pricey for just a building (even if a character will have a task there). So if you’re a premium player this is one I would tell you to think about for a bit before purchasing. Do the pros out weigh the biggest con (the price) for you? And honestly you may want to hold off for now until after you see what Christmas brings….
Stay away from it. Stay far, far away. I know it’s tempting because it’s shiny and it’s new, but when those donuts are hard to come by…this just isn’t the kind of item you want to drop them on. Complete freemium pass in my mind…just way to expensive.
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do…and I can tell you I probably won’t be getting this one. Just take your time with your thought process, there’s no rush to get it. You may want to hold off for now and see what the next event brings…
Here’s a look at the questline that comes with it..
When purchased and placed…
Homer: What the heck is that?
Lisa: It’s the Opera House! You were featured in several performances there!
Homer: If I remembered every amazing thing I did, I’d have no room to remember the important stuff like your beautiful name, Lisorb.
Lisa: It’s Lisa, Dad.
Homer: Tell that to your brother, Bort. Well, it’s all come back, Lisorb. I hate it here. Everyone would look at me after saying it’s not over until the fat lady sings. Just because I was in a hospital gown..and wig. And I was blocking the fire exit demanding to sing.
The Phantom Opera
Marge: Homie, I’m using the coupon for “A Date to Anywhere” you gave me for Valentine’s. We’re going to the Opera!
Homer: Oh. The whole point of giving out lame coupons is you’re not supposed to use them.
Marge: You used that coupon I gave you last Valentine’s.
Homer: That’s because it was for something dirty. But the “Free Hug” is somewhere in the trash.
Marge: Get your coat. We’re going!
Make Marge Take Homer to the Opera- 4hrs, Earns $520, 140xp
Marge: I can’t believe we waited 4 hours to get in, and the star didn’t even show up.
Homer: Wait, I just remembered I was scheduled to perform tonight.
Marge: *annoyed murmur*
Homer: I gues I could pull some strings and get you some free opera tickets for another show.
At this point you’ll unlock the task for Marge to watch the Opera…Alone.
