Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Christmas may be over, but the fun is just beginning! Snow still covers the ground and Maggie and friends have arrived in town! So break out those Christmas gift cards and stock up on donuts because there are brand new premium items in our stores! Now I know you may be trying to decide if these 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 Slide Factory to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Factory of highs and lows to your town!
Building: Slide Factory
Donut Price: 100 Donuts
Earns: 135 /6hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +10
Unique: Yes, only 1 per Springfield
-Earns a decent amount of event currency every 6hrs.
-Fun looking building for Springfield
-Short questline associated with it
-Bart will have a 4hr task there
-Animated when in use.
-Pricey for just a building (Happy Sumo is also 100 donuts and comes with Akira)
-Once the event is over the big benefit, it paying out event currency, is worthless as it’ll just pay out cash
I like it. Sure 100 donuts is a little pricey for it, but it has a character task and pays out event currency until the 19th. Plus it looks cool. As a premium player I’d pick this up…and grab it ASAP so you can maximize the benefit of the currency payout.
There’s really only 1 big reason to get this…you need the event currency. And personally I don’t think it’s worth 100 hard earned freemium donuts for what it is/does. You’re much better off spending the 100 donuts on the Happy Sumo and Akira. I don’t think you’ll have trouble earning enough event currency to earn all of the prizes along as you tap diligently.
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do…and I can tell I’ll be grabbing this one (I just really like the look of it). However, this is one of those the earlier you get it the better. So if you’re thinking about grabbing it do so ASAP to make the most out of the event currency payouts.
Here’s a look at the short questline it comes with…
I’ll Let It Slide This Time
Bart: Oh cool, a slide factory! Finally we get some fun places in Springfield.
Quimby: A recent survey of citizens made it clear that we have a 45% deficit of fun activities in Springfield. My staff has determined slides are the safest city improvement a mayor an make to achieve re-election.
Bart: Awesome, can we get other stuff besides slides? A helter skelter…A ski hill…a bobsled run?
Quimby: Ahmm, I don’t know. I’m afraid that would be a, ah, slippery slope to go down.
Make Bart Suggest Downhill Activities- 4hrs, Earns $260, 70xp
