Should I Spend Donuts on the Waterslide Tree?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Time to grab toast as we travel back…wayyyy back…in time with Homer in the all new TTT (Time Travel Toaster) event!  Homer’s taken us back to the Prehistoric Era and we’ve got Dinosaurs, Cavemen & of course other Prehistoric items in our Springfield just tempting us with those sprinkles!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks awesome 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 Waterslide Tree to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this slip, sliding, fossil generator to your town…

Decoration: Waterslide Tree
Donut Cost: 100 Donuts
Earns: 405 15xp/4hrs, also 965  when placed (Seems that it will convert to the next two Era’s currency as well.  So looks like it’ll be beneficial the whole game)
Bonus %: 3% bonus all cash and XP
Size:
8×7
Conform-O-Meter:
Tree-hugging +200
Other Info: 
Can be placed on the Grass/Dirt or Beach.  You’ll earn the  when you place the tree.

Leaves stores July 5th

Pros
-Earns a fair amount of  every 4hrs
-Comes with a bonus % in addition to the Fossil Payout
-Always animated, and a fun little decoration

Cons
-No questline (or even a little bit of dialogue) associated with it
-Expensive
-Bonus % isn’t great for 100 donuts spent

Final Thought
Premium
Don’t buy this because you think you need to it complete the event, you don’t.  If you want to get it, get it because you enjoy the decoration and have a good use for it in your Springfield…otherwise pass.

Freemium
Stay away from this one.  There are far better items to spend your sprinkles on, don’t waste them on this one.  You should have no issues finishing the event without it…

A note to both Premium and Freemium Players..
The only time I recommend getting something like this for the event currency is if you feel like you can only log in once or twice a day and you really seem like you’re falling behind in your prize track.  Otherwise stay away from it..

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as I premium player I’ll likely be passing on this one.   But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).  And this is one of those items that helps with the event, so if you’re thinking about getting it do it sooner rather than later to maximize your benefit from it.

What are your thoughts on Waterslide Tree?  Will you be spending the donuts to bring it to your Springfield?  Or have you already?  Why or why not? Where have you placed the tree in your Springfield? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. I agree it’s expensive for what you get but got one because it’s the only tree house I’ll ever have! It is pretty and has a lovely water sound but I can’t help wondering if it would have been too much to ask that the kids could have a task to go with it like sliding down the water slide? Anything like that would have made it more fun but either way I figure it’ll fit in nicely in my nature and camping area of town. It may be the only purchase I make during this event unless they come up with something I cannot resist later on.

  2. While pricey, it’s unique. I saw it in a neighbor’s town and loved it even more than expected. I’m very happy with it.
