Should I Spend Donuts on the Bagpipe Bus?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The kids of Springfield are mad as hell and they’re not going to take it anymore!  Time for a Battle Royale of epic proportions…kids vs adults.  The soul of Springfield is on the line!   So grab those sprinkles because the store is stocked with battle inspired items to fill your Springfield with!

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight 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 Bagpipe Bus to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this wind bag to your town…

Building/Decoration: Bagpipe Bus
Donut Cost: 
45 Donuts
 2% bonus on all cash and XP
Vanity +200

Leaves stores March 7th

-Comes with a questline
-Comes with a visual task for Willie
-Decent Bonus % for donuts spent

-Animation is ok, you see Willie playing Bagpipes of fire..but the bus doesn’t move.

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
Hard to find big faults with this one.  If you like it grab it, otherwise pass.

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 picked it up.   But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).

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

Gas Pipes
Willie starts

Willie: I heard you was lookin’ for an outlaw musician?  No instrument is more outlawed than the venerable bagpipes.
Otto: Woah, man, that’s not what I meant by outlaw.
Willie: Too late, long haired laddie. Once a Scotsman unsheathes his bagpipes they cannae resheathed until ears have bled!
Otto: Dude, now that’s a jam I can get behind. Strap in and rock on, man!
Make Willie Play the Bagpipes of Wrath- 8hrs
Willie: Hear Me!

  1. I bought it and love it. Its funny and spooky. I might put it in Homer palooza concert area or death row area with the gallows, electric shocker.


  2. 😈😎One of the most outstanding items in a while… definitely worthy of being a mobile vehicle though😎😈


  3. I played through the questline but now I can’t find anything sending Willy back to the bus. No skins in the inventory. Am I missing something?


  4. I can’t find the jebediah Springfield statue. Can anyone help me out?


  5. I bought this. I think the animation is awesome when Willie does his task there.


    • Hi, I’m wondering what the outside task for Willie is, 1hr, 4hr, 8 or 12. Sometimes that’s the deciding factor if I buy or not. Thanks for any help you can pass along.


      • His task is 8 hours. I don’t buy many premium items but I jumped on this and am very glad I did! Puts a smile on my face when I see it!


  6. EA twitter feed:

    “We’re giving our games and services a little love (maintenance) right now. You may not be able to log in, contact us on EA Help, or connect in the meantime, but you can still get help. Tweet us here, or get help from our community at Answers HQ:”

    I guess when they finally get the server back on line it will be carnage with every man and his dog trying to log on – may as well write off Tuesday 27th Feb!


  7. Once again, I didn’t get any XP for purchasing this item. Anyone else having this issue? This is the third thing that I’ve bought that has given no XP when placed.


    • Almost all the stuff offered during this event didn’t give any XP – it is kind of normal for the prizes and crafting stuff by now, but not for the premium items. I am a little disappointed with that as well, although the amounts are usually rather small.


  8. Here in Czech Republic I am also having a problem to log in. It has been at least 9 hours.


  9. First noticed server problems about five hours ago, couldn’t log out of my B town. Can’t get past Bart screen on my other device.


  10. Yep. Getting the message “EA server unavailable. Can not connect at this time. Please try again later.” Do notthe BART screen but won’t let me in.


  11. Mine is down as well 🙃


  12. central europe here & still can not log in


  13. Can’t connect too..


  14. I’ve been having issues trying to log in for the last 7/8 hours.

    I started with having to re-enter my password only to be told it wasn’t working so I reset it. Not paying attention to my password not being accepted I tapped on the home screen and was taken to start a new game. Other than that effort, I’ve had no luck with either my password being accepted and now I can’t even try to log-in.

    I was ahead on the event but I don’t want to miss a whole day – I’m in Australia, so this means I’ve missed all afternoon and evening which would have been 3 lots of tapping before going to bed.


  15. Been unable to reach server for 4 hours. Last Tuesday it was only 2 hours. I need my fix. I would have finished the prize track by now. This is costing me donuts!


  16. Logged in at 5am GMT ok. Logged in 2 hours later and told me I had been logged out of origin account. So signed back in but can’t access game since. First time in months this has happened to me too. Has everyone got this problem?


  17. I’m in Australia and have missed most of my daytime logins today. Fingers crossed for an extra day on the event…
