Pack those bags and grab your boarding passes because it’s time to go Around the World with The Simpsons!  The Around the World Event is in full swing in our pocket-sized Springfields and that can only mean one thing….all new prize tracks to work our way through!

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 Second Act you’re tasked with collecting Japanese Pins (ico_cur_aroundtheworld_japanpin_lg) to unlock each prize!

The First Act 2 Prize awarded at 4,815 ico_cur_aroundtheworld_japanpin_lg is Mount Fuji, because Springfield needs something to erupt…


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

Once you’ve collected 4,815 ico_cur_aroundtheworld_japanpin_lg you’ll automatically be awarded Mount Fuji and you’ll see this message popup:


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

Fuji’s Peak Pt. 1
Apu starts

Quimby: I hereby commemorate the opening of Springfield’s very own replica Mount Fuji.
Bart: It’s a mountain. So what?
Skinner: Where to begin! Mount Fuji is a sacred Shinto site, a uniquely symmetrical stratovolcano, and it’s home to the rare Japanese nuthatch! Our town will soon be inundated with eager nuthatch hunters.
Apu: Birdwatchers! Double the price of floppy hats and leather sandals!

Fuji’s Peak Pt. 2
Lisa starts

Moe: This Mount Fuji is taking up a lot of space, but it ain’t making me no money. It’s like when Barney passes out on my doorstep.
Lisa: Well, we could lead tours of pilgrims eager to meditate on its sacred slopes.
Moe: Love the humor, kid, but try to focus.
Bart: We could build a giant roller coaster inside it. “The Fuji Plunge of Fear.”
Moe: Now, *this* kid gets it!
Make Quimby Recruit Feargineers- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp

Fuji’s Peak Pt. 3
Lisa starts

Lisa: Mayor Quimby, Mount Fuji is a sacred place of calm serenity. A roller coaster would be completely inappropriate. I will not let you turn our cheap replica in a low-rent JapanWorld into a lousy tourist attraction. Mr. Flanders and I are starting a protest.
Mayor Quimby: Wonderful. My father always said, all roller-coaster publicity is good roller-coaster publicity. He really did.

Make Ned Protest- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp

Fuji’s Peak Pt. 4
Lisa starts

Homer: Either there’s a rumble in my belly, or that mountain is happy to see me.
Mt. Fuji: People of Springfield, I am angry you are trying to build a roller coaster inside me, like I’m a cheap amusement park hill.
Lisa: I knew it! You want respectful pilgrims, right?
Mt. Fuji: No, they suck too. Everybody just scram, or I’ll destroy you with a terrible eruption.
Quimby: We hear and obey, Mighty Mountain. Er, vote Quimby!
Make Springfielders Worship Mount Fuji- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp Freemium and $260, 70xp Premium
Lisa: Bart, that was you inside the mountain making it talk, wasn’t it?
Bart: Yep. That giant hollow interior makes your voice sound huge!
Lisa: You think you could have “Mount Fuji” order the Mayor to fund a band camp?
Bart: Anything for you, sis.


Here are some quick facts about Mount Fuji:

  1. How do I prepare the bullies for an influx of birdies. There isn’t a go to or start button. What do I need to do. Simpsons tapped out


  2. This may not be the right place to post this, but does anyone else’s game keep making them have to re-download all 600+ MB and log back into their EA accounts ? I’m starting to think it’s just my phone but I’m not exactly sure. It’s a real inconvenience to my Springfield and my phone’s data plan since I don’t have wifi.


    • That tends to happen if you don’t have enough free space for the large cache this game tends to have, or if a file is corrupt. Free up some space if you can, see if that helps. If it doesn’t go to a coffee shop with wifi and totally reinstall.
