Should I Spend Donuts On the Hellementary School?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Halloween in our pocket-size Springfields!  Yes that magical time of the year when our towns turn dark, our water becomes mucky, there are monsters everywhere to battle and (as with all events) there are LOADS of items from Halloweens past to spend those sprinkles 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 the Hellementary School to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this hell raising school to your Springfield…


Decoration/Building: Hellementary School
Donut Price: 90 Dounts
Earns: 200 ico_cur_thoh2016_filmstrip_lg, 40xp/20hrs
MAG Points When Placed: 175 ico_mhub_thoh2016_eventlevels
Size: 5×13
 Obedience +20

-Always animated, flames flicker. When in use it’s got an additional animation (front doors open and flames shoot out)
-Earns a decent amount of event currency every 20hrs
-Bart has a 8hr task there, to get Straight A’s in Evil (earns $420, 105xp)

-No questline associated with it
-A bit on the pricey side for just a building

Final Thought
An ok buy for a premium player. Fun looking building with a character task (that pays at a premium rate) .  I say if you have the donuts and a location for it, pick it up.  But DO NOT buy it for the event currency.  You’ll earn plenty of event currency from the event itself.  In other words you don’t need this to be successful in this event. So get it because you like it, not because you think you need it.

Personally I think this is a freemium pass.  Yes it has a character task, but I do think there are nicer items to grab for your donuts (or nicer items to come).  So freemium players I’d pass on this, and save those donuts for something better.

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 as a premium player, I’m passing on this one.  Doesn’t excite me enough to spend the donuts and i really have no place for it.  But whatever you decide just remember this will be leaving our games soon, so make your final decision before it leaves our games on October 18th…

  1. What is the fixation that EA has with setting schools on fire? There are two ways (i think) to set Springfield Elementary on fire and now here’s another school on fire! Something tells me that the developers didn’t enjoy school much when they were kids, lol!


  2. I was lucky enough to get it in the mystery box for Halloween 2017. The animation is pretty cool. As the reviewer said, not much in the interaction with other characters. Oh, well. 🙂
