Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Level 60 arrived yesterday…and in the midst of the nice round level update, lockout confusion and all the crazy Wild West fun, Ol’ Gil has returned to Springfield! With his shortest sales pitch yet, he’s pushing Duff Gardens on us this time around….since no one goes to Krustyland, why not bring Krustyland to Springfield?
Duff Gardens isn’t your typical premium buy, as there are some upgrades you can do to add new dimensions to your “amusement park”. So in this post we’re going to not only break down the pros and cons of the Gardens, but we’re also going to give you the ins and outs and everything you need to know about this Duff centered park.
So let’s get to it, shall we?
Building: Duff Gardens
Character/Costume: Lizard Queen Lisa
Donut Price: 145 Donuts
Size: 10×11 (Gardens only)
Conform-O-Meter Impact: Vanity +100
Requirements: You MUST be at Level 60 to start the questline
What Does It Do: Not an actual amusement park like Krustyland, it’s a building like any other building in Springfield. It’ll earn you cash and XP. The difference is you can send characters on tasks there and in return you’ll get 1 of 4 prizes. We’ll cover that below…
Leaves Games 1 week after you trigger it
-Unique looking building for Springfield
-Lizard Queen Lisa is a classic costume for Lisa
-You’ll unlock 4 different decorations for Springfield with the purchase of this (sadly none of them add to your bonus %)
-Lizard Queen Lisa will earns a premium rate on her tasks (except her Go to School task, that earns at the regular rate)
-Three animated tasks (visual)
-Lizard Queen Lisa will use Duff Gardens
-On the pricey side for a building/skin combo, although relatively low priced for a Gil “Deal”
-Lizard Queen Lisa (at least at the time of this writing) does not have a 1hr task
-The prizes from Duff Gardens get repetitive, and you end up with a lot of Gnomes
I like this combo. I really do. I think if you’re a premium player and in a position to spend the donuts, grab this before it’s gone. While the Gardens can get a bit repetitive, I do like the look of the building and Lizard Queen Lisa is a really fun addition to Springfield!
So premium players…grab this one.
This is one of those, if you like the idea of the combo grab it items. It’s an ok buy for freemium players. Lizard Queen Lisa is fun and, again, the Duff Gardens add a unique look to Springfield.
So in my opinion, freemium players, if you like this grab it. It’s a good buy.
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do. And on this one I can tell you I’ll be picking it up for my Springfield. But whatever you decide just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves your game. You’ll have a week to decide…so choose wisely! 🙂
And now onto more details for this purchase….
When you make the purchase Gil says…
Gil: Have Fun with yet another Springfield amusement park! It’s fun and colorful, but don’t drink the water. Just like Mexico!

Who Can You Send?:
How Do I Unlock a Prize?:
For every 5 characters you send to the Gardens you’ll earn a prize. But if you send 10 at once, and clear all 10 at the same time you’ll still only earn 1 prize. (at least that’s how it played out for me last night)
You’ll also see this task box popup every so often for Duff Gardens….
What Can I Unlocked?
One of 4 prizes…and that’s currently it. Here are your prize options:
And I can tell you that most of the time, you’ll unlock a Gnome. So be prepared for a lot of Gnomes….
