Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s event time in Springfield! With the launch of Itchy and Scratchy Land, summer can officially begin for the residents of our pocket-sized towns! Of course, an all-new event means a new opportunity for EA to add new premium items to our stores!
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 Squeaky Voice Attendant and Soarin’ Over Springfield to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this theme park combo to your town…

Building/Decoration: Soarin’ Over Springfield
Donut Cost: 100 Donuts
Earns: $150, 13xp/8hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +5

-Comes with a questline, every questline task earns event currency
-Can staff rides at Itchy and Scratchy Land
-Animated when in use, lights turn on
-Permanent tasks for Bart, Marge, Homer & Lisa at Soarin’ Over Springfield (earns event currency)
-Permanent tasks are joint tasks for Bart & Homer or Marge and Lisa
-Just a skin, not a new character
-Squeaky Voice Teen animations are “meh”
I would buy this one for the building alone. I like the Soarin’ building for Springfield and the fact that it has permanent tasks (and not for everyone in Springfield). Squeaky Voice Attendant is a decent throw-in, considering he’ll help with the event. At 100 donuts for the two, I do think it’s worth it.
I would say this is a rare freemium toss-up. It’s not a bad pickup, but in the end it is just a skin for Squeaky Voice Teen. You may want to save your donuts for full characters over skins…
Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as a premium player, I’ll be picking this up (and placing in my Efcot area). 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 his tasks…
Squeaky Voice Attendant’s Permanent Tasks:
|Try New Acne Medications||1hr||$105, 26xp||Brown House|

SV Attendant will also have a 30m task to sneak an ice cream if you have the truck..
And here’s the questline that comes with Soarin’ Over Springfield….different than the questline for SV Attendant…
