Wild West 2016 Prize Guide: Act 3, Prize 9 Carl’s Dad Caverns

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Wild West is alive and well in our Springfields!  As the Wild West Event has hit our games and it’s full of old west inspired decorations, buildings & characters!

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 TNT (ico_wildwest_tnt_md) to unlock each prize!

The final Wild West Prize awarded at 28,370ico_wildwest_tnt_md is Carl’s Dad Caverns…because why not? 😉

So let’s take a closer look at this final prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…

Once you’ve collected 28,370 ico_wildwest_tnt_md you’ll automatically be awarded Carl’s Dad Caverns and you’ll see this message popup:

2016-05-17 12.01.17

And you’ll have the option to store or place it in your Springfield immediately. Remember, if you store it you’ll need to go into your inventory to retrieve it later.

Carl’s Dad Caverns does come with it’s own questline..and it’ll start right up for you once you’ve placed it.  This questline will require Homer and Lisa, and now that you’ve finished the prize track it’s ok to work on the questline.  Unless of course you’re trying to earn loads of currency to buy items in the store.  But if I were you, I’d clear this questline.

Here’s a look at the questline now:

Carl’s Boy Vs. Aliens Pt. 1
Homer starts

Make Homer Dig Into Carl’s Past- 2hrs, Earns $110, 27xp

Make Carl Treat his “Glaucoma”- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Make Rigelians Treat Their “Glaucoma”- x2. 4hrs, Earns $260, 70xp

And that’s it for the questline, so let’s take a look at the quick breakdown for Carl’s Dad Caverns:

What Does it Do?: Animated when in use, bats fly.  Carl has a permanent 1hr task there (Search Carl’s Dad Caverns)

And there you have it the details behind Carl’s Dad Caverns!

What’s Next?

Nothing…you’re done! You’ve completed all of the Wild West Prizes.  All that’s left to do is continue to unlock your daily prizes from the General Store and/or buy the prizes with event currency in the store.

As I’ve mentioned many times…there are no bonus donuts with this event.  So there’s no point in continuing to collect TNT.  Focus on your General Store prizes and that’s it.  I’ve written a whole post about what to do after you’ve unlocked Carl’s Dad Caverns.  You can view it here.  I encourage you to read it as it breaks everything down.

And there we have it my friends…for the final time of this event, the complete breakdown of Carl’s Dad Caverns!

What do you think of the Caverns? Have you unlocked it yet? What did you think of the Wild West Event?  What do you think will be next? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. How can I get Carl’s dad cavern now? Please help !!!
    Simmonsro59@gmail.com (preacher500) game name , level 142. I’m a big fan and play daily, but I
    Never am able to complete task. Wow, I always need maybe an extra 2 days . Smh

  2. cmasterdelphi

    I fininsed (parts) of the event (I started TSTO in the middle of act2) and I have the Cave and finished the quest but I just noticed that NOW, Carls Taks “search Cave” is locked and it says as requirement “Quest” – what does that mean?

    • There’s a questline for it that triggers the ability to do that task. Do you have any tasks still pending in your task book?

      • cmasterdelphi

        Well, sure but they are not connected to this old event. Also I remember sending Carl and Lisa once to the Cave during the end of the event.

  3. It was nice to obtain Carl’s Dad Cavern days ago
    Now it’s time to treat my glaucoma (lol) …

  4. moecyslack905

    It would be good if you could change back to the currencies for the previous phases and finish them off. I have finished phase three but neither of the other two and don’t want to spend donuts as I don’t have many. Maybe a future feature (if it’s even possible)? Hope so 😃

  5. I forgotten – does the Cave come first then the Unburied Treasure? Or the Treasure then the Cave or neither of them are connected. Sorry, hunted for the right post, can’t find it.

    The reason I’m asking is that I’m trying to find the few neighbors that are furthest behind (I might have to assume the Unburied treasure comes first)… I tried the bottom of the Prospector list but found out that’s not the best way (to find the furthest behind neighbor).

  6. Speaking of Kang and Kodos I got a topiary of one of them from Rocket Launch (not sure which one its pretty rare to get one though). Makes change from Hail Ant signs or worse debris.

  7. I wish the task to “treat glaucoma” was permanent!

  8. Bad thing the colour doesnt match the rest of the rocks

  9. Cool. Love when nothing is updated for 5 hours.

  10. Because why not! Haha Fun little addition to my Springfield. I wish the overall Western storyline was more cohesive from start to finish, but it is what it is.

  11. What happens once you collect 2500 TNT, as prompted in my task bar?

  12. talon8770 / rick

    i got 30 blood mobiles and got the message 5500 items limit does that count what is in inventory?

  13. Are Kodos and Kang premium or limited-time characters?

  14. I know that there was a glitch earlier with the Gil deal that it disappeared and that there was a post about it with all the other glitches in the games. But whatever happened to the glitch? Did EA fix it? Because the Gil deal is still not in my game and I was interested in getting it.
    Thanks for all you guys do!

  15. I love the cavern! I really wish more tasks were 4,8, or 12. I’m probably never going to set a one hour task unless I’m about to unlock something in say a couple hours and I don’t want to have anyone tied up in case I need them. I’m assuming there will be s Carl’s Dad Cavern WDTCF coming as I don’t remember.
    Now I feel like I should buy Mt. Carlmore.

  16. This thing looks a lot like the planet-killer/Doomsday Machine from the original Star Trek.

    • I think it looks like the inside of Homer’s large intestines during his last colonoscopy. This has been confirmed by Dr. Hibbard.

    • Hahaha, good one! Old school if you remember that
