Should I Spend Donuts on Squeaky Voice Attendant and Soarin’ Over Springfield?

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…

Character: Squeaky Voice Attendant (a SKIN for Squeaky Voice Teen)
Building/Decoration:
Soarin’ Over Springfield
Donut Cost: 100 Donuts
Size:
8×10
Earns:
$150, 13xp/8hrs
Conform-O-Meter: 
Consumerism +5
Can Be Placed: 
grass|dirt|pavement|boardwalk|pier

Leaves stores June 18th

Pros
-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)

In-Between
-Permanent tasks are joint tasks for Bart & Homer or Marge and Lisa

Cons
-Just a skin, not a new character
-Squeaky Voice Teen animations are “meh”

Final Thought
Premium:
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.

Freemium:
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:

Task Length Earns Location
Try New Acne Medications 1hr $105, 26xp Brown House
Promote Itchy and Scratchy Money 4hrs $260, 70xp* Outside/Visual
Desperately Search for Lost Children 8hrs $420, 105xp* Outside/Visual
Apply to Other Dead-End Jobs 12hrs $600, 150xp Brown House
Fantasize About Quitting Dramatically 24hrs $1000, 225xp Brown House

*These are the payouts for when the event is over.  During the event, the 4hr and 8hr tasks will pay out event currency. 4hr-  Earns 60, 25, 70xp and 8hr- Earns 120, 50, 105xp

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…

Soarin’ Over Springfield Pt. 1
Bart starts

Bart: Dad, can we go on Soarin’ Over Springfield? Can we, can we? It’s got a huge screen, and they suspend you off the ground, and it feels like you’re flying.
Homer: So… it’s a crappy ride and an IMAX movie that’s not even in 3D?
Bart: Uh, right. Oh, and also Milhouse is going, and he throws up on every ride no matter how lame.
Homer: THIS I GOTTA SEE! LEAD THE WAY!
Make Bart and Home Ride Soarin’ Over Springfield- 4hrs, Earns $260, 60, 25 

Soarin’ Over Springfield Pt. 2
Lisa starts

Lisa: Mom, can we go on Soarin’ Over Springfield? Can we, can we? It’s got a huge screen, and they suspend you off the ground, and it feels like you’re flying.
Marge: So… it’s a crappy ride and an IMAX movie that’s not even in 3D?
Lisa: Uh, right. Oh, and also there’s a really long line.
Marge: A CHANCE TO MEET AND TALK TO INTERESTING STRANGERS?! LEAD THE WAY!
Make Marge and Lisa Ride Soarin’ Over Springfield- 4hrs, Earns $260, 60, 25

  1. I love my Squeaky Voiced Teen 👍

    I would probably spend the Sprinkles on this (totally worth it even if there are Tasks at the Brown House), but there’s only so much you can fit in Ichy & Scratchy Land (queue waah waah waah waaaaah 🎺), and why didn’t EA think of this when scaling the size of what goes in I&SL? 🤷‍♂️

    I picked the combo up, I thought it was a good deal even if it’s only a skin & not a full character. SVT has always been a favorite character of mine. 😁

  3. I’ve got $238M in cash and can’t buy a single plot of land. What’s the point anymore?

    I can’t tell if it pays out 60 axes and 25 I&S money for both characters in total or if that is the payout for each character.

    If that’s the total for both, it’s a bad deal because Homer & Marge currently can earn 81 axes by staffing rides (with the 35% bonus)

  5. At first I was going to pass on this combo but after purchasing it I must say this is one of the few where I DON’T have buyer’s remorse. At first I thought it was just a building but it fact it is a “ride” akin to IMAX 3D rides and that’s perfect for my plans for my KISLand to have a complete look. I’ve always loved the versatility of the SVT and now he’s an KISLand employee with the uniform to prove it 🙂 And the dialogue between SVT, Bart, and Lisa make it all worth it IMHO.

  6. Now I’m bummed. I thought this was a take-off of one of the old attractions at Great America in Gurnee, IL.

    In 1979, Great America (then owned by Marriott) added The Pictorium. Basically, it was a theater with a HUGE screen and all seats are pretty close to the screen. The original show was called “To Fly”. Lots of film from within stunt planes. You felt like you were in the plane with the vertigo and stomach drops and everything!

    Looked up Disney’s California Adventure, and the Sorin’ Around the World. Yup, direct parody. Bummer.

    And, now, I’m doubly bummed, because the Pictorium was torn down this spring. Guess 15-minute IMax movies didn’t draw in enough customers.

    • Well…the Disney version takes it one step further…by having people “suspended” in seats that move to the action…and they have wind and heat and other additional “mind warps” to add to the fun.

      Maybe I missed something in your post…but unless your place had your feet dangling…and moving you around…(while staying in one place) Disney comes closer to “souring.”

    Good deal for freemium players if you haven’t picked him up yet. Like Duffman, building, character and skin. All for 100!

  9. Let me begin by saying I have a very strong love/hate attitude about all Disney Parks and I still refer to Disney California Adventure as Six Flags over Walt’s Dead Frozen Body. However Soarin’ is one of the few attractions that merits high praise and is a must have for my Itchy and Scratchy Park.

  10. I like the building…it adds an attraction that isn’t a “shake you till you throw up” ride.😄 It also gives me a place for the I&S holgram that’s been in storage since Future Springfield got the axe (ah…the too many pieces blues).

  11. I instead bought some of the music mystery boxes for items that I missed. It took me to around 300 donuts, so unless the building animation is really cool, I plan on skipping this.

    I originally got this bundle based on the (mistaken) belief that the Peasant skin did not pay out a Premium earning…oops! Serves me right for not double-checking. That being said, I actually like the building, and since I had over 800 donuts to spare (with a few hundred more on the way once I cash out the $110 million+ of in-game moola I’ve accumulated), I feel okay about this purchase. Anybody strapped for donuts should probably skip this one, but I actually like this skin…the uniform works with a variety of part-time jobs in the service industry. 🙂

    Yes I like this very much and might buy, like the look and the new skin and tasks, for svt going to hold of a bit till the Presidents hit, here’s hoping

  17. Personally I wouldn’t recommend it. I got it because I thought I’d like the building more than I do. The skin is completely useless for me (other than event currency) because I have the Peasant skin and I love it.

    • I think it’s a nice looking building. Too nice. I want my I&S land to require a tetanus shot. Idk where I’d put it outside of I&S land other than my already overcrowded SH. I don’t want to drop a hundred donuts on a building I’m iffy on. While the event currency would be nice (I got Diane with only hours to spare), this is probably a wait for mystery box for me.

  18. Being a huge Disney person, this was a must-buy! In fact, I also moved my Efcot Center into Itch & Scratchy Land as it now has a place where it fits in. I also moved the Castle of Equalia into I&S Land because, well… I think you get the idea!
