Should I Spend Donuts On Rocket to Your Doom?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The nerds have invaded Springfield!  Ok just one nerd, and he’s not all that bad.  And only in Springfield can Professor Frink, with the help of Homer, open up a black hole that transports doppelgangers, robots and Stephen Hawking (!) to our pocket sized Springfields!  So time to crack open those hologram wallets, because there’s a store full of multiverse theme premium items to spend our donuts on!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks as awesome as this because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Rocket to Your Doom to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Diz-Nee Ride to your Springfield…

Building/Decoration: Rocket to Your Doom
Donut Price: 80 Donuts
Earns: $135, 15xp/4hrs
Size: 12×12
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +20

Leaves stores September 20th

Pros:
-Small questline for Krusty
-Animated when in use, top spins and lifts
-Comes with a permanent 10hr task for Krusty (Earns $525, 135xp)

Cons:
-Massive building
-Better suited for Krustyland, not Springfield

Final Thought:
Premium/Freemium:
This is one of those toss ups.  If you like it and have a use for it, get it.  Otherwise, despite the ok price tag, pass.  I like that it comes with a permanent task for Krusty.  But at the end of the day it’s just another, very large, building for Springfield.  (Although it’ll go nicely with EFCOT Center if you have it 😉 )

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do.  And I can tell you I’m on the fence with this one.  I love what it’s modeled after, but at the end of the day it’s just another building.  So I’m still trying to make up my own mind. Of course whatever you decide just remember this is limited time and will be leaving our games when the event ends next week. So if you’re thinking about grabbing it, do it very soon before it’s gone for good!

Here’s a look at the questline that comes with it..

Rocket to Your Doom
Krusty starts

Kang: Herschel Krustofsky!  You copied our spacecraft design for your theme park ride!
Krusty: What, me?  I didn’t design that rickety junk heap!  I just cash the checks!
Kang: Nevertheless, someone must be punished for appropriating our intellectual property!  We choose you!
Krusty: Why me?!
Kang: From your mighty green horns, we conclude that you are the Alpha human!  As punishment, you must ride your own horribly boring yet horribly dangerous ride!
Krusty: Aghhhhh (My screenshot of this didn’t take apparently, so this may not be exactly what he says…but it’s basically something like this)
Make Krusty Stare Doom in the Face- 10hrs, Earns $525, 135xp

    I was on the fence, but saw it in Floozy_bots’ town (thank you😊), then reading your idea about putting it by Efcot, I’m sold 😊😊😊

  5. Hmmm, might be tempted if Krusty didn’t have his premium tuxedo. Pass for me.

  7. I really like this building, because of the new 10 hr premium task that Krusty has there, though the animation is pretty cool too. I love these Premium10 (as I call them) tasks that are associated with many premium buildings & pay $525. Whenever I have time to assign individual tasks I almost always send characters on these tasks, like eating buffet dinners at the Up, Up & Away. I think that one has 5 Premium10 tasks which is the most I’ve seen associated w/any one building. We got a couple new Premium 10 tasks with this event w/the new buildings. Herman can Defend the Domicile, Jasper has the Rest in Cryo Chamber, and Disco Stu & Reverend Lovejoy have Cross the Firmaments. Very cool! RachelS

  8. Yep I had to have this cos it’s got a flying saucer on the top al la Mars Attacks 🤖🤖🤖

  9. On a separate topic, I got mecha hawk and stopped on judgement part 4 so I can keep on collecting antimatter for bonuts. You think waiting to finish the quest line until after the event will lose my ability to earn evil homer? Looks like the rest of the quest line may take 48 hours to complete, so I’ll probably have to start the quest line back up by Sunday. Will the robots still be around to tap on after the quest line is done?

    • I should have done this. I have no-one to blame but myself though, because I should have done research into what happens further along in the quest. Some kind of large WARNING sign would have been helpful 😀

      Ultimately, I’m losing out on 3 to 6 bonuts. Oh well… ¯\_( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)_/¯

  12. Meh, huge, not really impressed and hard to work into the overall design. And what is this Krustyland you speak of. Sounds like a horrible idea.

    Got it yesterday very cool looking while krusty is using it. “The man who came to be dinner” is my favorite episode. Too bad the Simpson family don’t use it too…..”are we there yet”.. P.s. It does go good with efcot and atomic hula hoop

    The weird thing is that “Rocket to Your Doom” was never a Krustyland ride. It was a ride at Dizzneeland.
