Should I Spend Donuts On Peek-At-Em Park?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Lions and Tigers and Emus…oh my!  The Springfield Zoo (aka Moe’s Ark) event is in full swing in our pocket-sized towns!  Of course, by now, we all know that a new event means a new excuse for EA to fill our stores with limited-time premium items to tempt us.

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 Peek-At-Em Park to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Peekimon Park to your town…

Building/Decoration: Peek-At-Em Park
Donut Cost: 75 Donuts
Earns: 14
 /4hrs AND a 4% bonus on all cash and XP
Vanity +200
Can Be Placed: 

Leaves stores September 12th

-Comes with a short questline
-Will help earn more Sanctuary Grants for Habitat Upgrades
-Very good Bonus % for donuts spent
-Always animated

-After initial questline, no tasks there.

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
While you certainly don’t need this to successfully complete the event, it is a nice addition to Springfield.  Has a nice look to it and the bonus % is GREAT for donuts spent.  Anytime you can get 2% for 40 donuts (or 4% for 80 donuts) it’s a good buy.  In this case, you’re getting 4% for 75 donuts which makes it an even better buy.  Not a must buy, but a good buy regardless of your player status.

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 likely pick this one up.  I don’t care too much about the event currency earning potential, but it is a good buy for donuts spent (cash/xp bonus % wise). But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now). Also, since this is an item that helps with the event, it’s better to pick this up sooner rather than later if you plan to grab it.  This way you maximize the event currency earning throughout the entire event.

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

Peek-At-Em Park

Lisa: Look, Dad! These animals are amazing!
Homer: Can’t look now, honey. Daddy’s doing important texting. You’re not supposed to text and parent at the same time.
Lisa: But don’t you want to admire the animals’ beauty?
Homer: Not while I’m typing “screw you” in emojis to Flanders.

  1. I love it. 4% bonus AND it gives finally gives me something to make springfield national park look good:

  2. Peek-At-Em Park

    I’d ♥️ to get it (actually not that big compared to the Lion Sign, an it earns Event Currency at a decent price), but no Land Token included? No spend Sprinkles (sorry EA, but this Event will not take up any further space than the Bonus Area) 🤷🏼‍♂️

  3. Is it really worth the donuts though???

  4. I purchased it and placed in my zoo. I may move it across the street after the event. I also moved Moe’s Petting Zoo across the street. There is always that crap business nearby for the folks who can’t afford the real thing.

  5. I bought this Thursday night on one iPad and placed it. The next morning, my daughter was using the iPad, and so I went on my phone and got the warning about devices not syncing. Silly me, I ignored the warning. Down 75 donuts and the Peek-at-em is back in the store. My bad I suppose. I have tried contacting EA and have gotten the run around. They want proof that I spent the donuts. How exactly remains a mystery. Very disappointed. In the past! I have spent money on donuts and on the cash only characters they have been offering. I will not be dropping any cash this time around.

    • If you don’t pay cash fir the fonts in question, there is no paper trail. Harvested or free donuts don’t Count unfortunately.

  6. I got it right away mainly for the bonus percentage.

  7. The above info in the description for the Peek-At-Em Park says it earns 75 Sanctuary Grants/4 hours. The In-Game info says it earns 14 Sanctuary Grants/4 hours. Which is correct?

    • Well…let me begin by saying that time is relative. Unless we observe its passage, by some sort of measurement, it may very well stand still…allowing 4 hours to turn to 16 (much like binge watching a Netflix series). So…in theory, you could earn 75 donuts in the time you lost binge watching…but would have to collect the 14 every 4 hours…which would in fact be a form of measurement, thus collapsing the quantum time on itself…and…

      It was a typo. 14 every 4 hours.

  8. I got it mostly for the event currency, I might not be able to complete the first act 😊

    • I find, with other events, that I am somewhat nervous at first but I always finish the first phase in time. Then saving as many daily challenges as possible, means that completing phase two and three gets much easier. So, dont sweat it. I rarely buy anything specific to help out with the event.

  9. Gotta catch ‘em all.

  10. I need sanctuary grants, the high bonus percentage is nice, I was a little dismayed by the fantastical looking animals but I placed it in my magic forest..

  11. I ended up grabbing it. Practical reasons (that bonus percent) pushed me over the top, but the primary reason was that it reminded me of Pokémon, and my one RL friend that plays this game is a huge fan. So it was mostly as a nod to her.

  12. I got a notification today saying something along the lines of 300 free donuts and a free character for players today. So naturally I jumped right on that but nothing has happened. Has this happened to anyone else? Confuse

  13. Feels like I’m playing Pokemon 😂

  14. Lisa (Kyle b.)

    I paired this item with Friar Wiggum’s Fantastical Beastarium, they just looked like they go together. On another note, I also added the Tree Steakhouse from Brazil and the information booth (from the casino event, I think?) to my zoo. They, too, seem to fit in well with the theme.

  15. Has anyone gotten the butterfly Maggie for the 300 donuts yet?

    • The Maggie skin offer come later. If you already bought donuts unfortunately you won’t get it. You will need to buy another 300 donuts later with the offer.

  16. Just got my 300 free donuts back. Spent them on the spot. Probably not wisely but didn’t want to lose them again

  17. I think it looks nice and I like the weird creatures hanging out, they look like Pokémon to me. The 4% bonus and the event currency benefit at 75 donuts is what put me over the top and I decided to buy it. The footprint is a good size as well.

  18. Has anyone tried the Day Old Donut deals from Gil recently? I know there was an issue before with people not getting their donuts. Has that officially been resolved?

  19. Got it right away. I put it in my Asia area.

  20. Haven’t read your post yet ……. I thought about it & would of bought it until I saw it in a friend’s town ……. it looks fugly ! PAASSSS 💥

    I loved the dialogue for this quest! Bought it right away, now even happier with the 4% bonus 🙂
    Thanks Alissa 😁😁😁

  22. I got it immediately, but sadly the “animals” are too fake looking to incorporate this into my wilderness areas.

    This is going into the amusement park region instead.

    • Josephine Kick@$$

      That was my one annoyance, the animals they chose, but they had their reasons 🙂

      • Indeed – I am considering design options to obscure the “animals” with other items so that only the waterfall is really visible. The least annoying is the one on top, so maybe this can work…

  23. I thought it was really cute and a good value so I bought it right away. Was so happy to see Lisa’s premium task there, then upset to find it was a one time bonus.
