Hell on Wheels Act 3 is Live! The Rundown and What You Need To Know

Note: no open thread this week because of Act 3 hitting today.  Feel free to use this post as this week’s open thread.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Rev those engines Tappers because Hell on Wheels has arrived! Which car will be the king of the derby?  Well, it’s up to you to find out in TSTO’s latest update…Hell on Wheels!

As always, loads of dialogue with this one, so be sure to read along to see what happens! And of course, I’ll be posting it as each week wraps up…

Remember, this Act will still be playable until the event ends on May 18th.  However, Act 4 will start on May 10th (note the Tuesday start date)

Things kick off for Act 3 with some dialogue between Krusty, Homer, and Cletus…

Homer: Everyone is just staring at me with their I’ve-seen-your-credit-report eyes. I better get out of here. Maybe Krusty will give me a lift home.
Krusty: Sorry, Homer, I’m going to the V.I.P. lounge, so I hope you don’t mind if I ditch you. Actually, it doesn’t matter if you mind, ’cause that’s what I’m doing.
Homer: How am I gonna get home now? I don’t wanna call Marge, and I don’t think Youber drivers accept centavos.
Cletus: Howdy, stranger! You look like you could use a ride.
Homer: Thanks. I’ll just, uh, slide these chicken cages over…
Chicken: BAGAWK!
Homer: Whoa! What’s that about?
Cletus: Chickens ride in front, hitchhikers ride in back. In this here truck, that’s the pecking order.
Homer: Yeah…literally.
Cletus: If y’all are gonna use five-dollar words, you can find another ride.

This triggers the Act 3 questline, The Internet of Wheels and is followed by  4hr tasks for Cletus and Homer, as well as a task to collect Act 3 Currency (115).  The Internet of Wheels is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of this Act’s prizes.

Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 3…

Here’s the Act 3 Synopsis from EA:

A forlorn Homer makes his way home when he happens to wander past the CarGo company
headquarters, where their new talking smart car strikes up a conversation with a very confused Homer. When Homer can’t figure out how to scan a QR code to open the car’s doors to take it for a test ride, the company’s young co-CEOs, Antoine and Zora, come down and decide that Homer is the ideal everyman for their new promotion, and they give him the car! Homer is thrilled to receive a new car for free, and he enlists its help in lying to his family about why he couldn’t call them to tell them he was going to be home so late.

As I stated above, you’ll go right into The Internet of Wheels questline, which is what the Act 3 story will follow. This questline is how you’ll unlock the Act 3 prizes.

The currency we’re working on collecting for Act 3…

Key Fobs


I’ll lay out specifically what you need to do for each part in the turbo tappin’ post, but I don’t want any of you to get messed up with this.  So don’t forget to SCROLL!

Here are the prizes for Part 3:

Yokel Truck (Decoration)- The Internet of Wheels Pt. 1 and 115

Parking Garage (Building)- The Internet of Wheels Pt. 2 and 155

Duke Druther’s Auto Detailing Billboard (Decoration)- The Internet of Wheels Pt. 3 and 115

Springfield Car Wash (Building)- The Internet of Wheels Pt. 4 and 115

CarGo Smart Car (NPC)- The Internet of Wheels Pt. 5 and 195

Questline, which I’ll post later, will show how each is unlocked. 

Characters who can complete tasks for Act 2:
Kliff (New Premium)
Vaclav (New Premium)
Antonie and Zora (New Premium)

Each Act will have a new premium character that will earn event currency.  From what I can see, based on the info from EA, characters will be used throughout the entire event. 

Characters earn:

5 /4hrs for Freemium
8 /4hrs for New Premium

Remember: If you want to know what’s coming in future Acts (Act 4) you can check out our Spoiler YouTube Video on the event here.  Loads of images and details.

Act 1/Act 2 Prizes


These are STILL unlockable if you haven’t completed that prize track.  You have until the event ends to unlock ALL the prizes.  So keep going with the earlier Acts if you haven’t yet finished it. You have until May 18th to finish those…


Here’s what’s included today…

New stuff…

 Antonie and Zora & CarGo (Building & Character)– 150 (This is a 2 for 1 character deal.  They are two people but act (and earn) as 1.  Like Sherri and Terri, Patches and Poor Violet, the Robot Rumble Announcers…etc)

All other returning content, that arrived during Act 1 remains until the event ends. (including the Mystery Box )

Gil is back!

Gil’s back for Act 3 with a Car “deal”…

Gil’s Car Deal- 150. Includes: (Five Car Decorations: Bonnie & Clyde Death Car, Spring King Ned’s Convertible, Burns’ Vintage Limousine, Flaming Green Derby Car, and Jesus Christ Super Car)

    While we’re complaining about how Meh the acts are, I’ve been really excited about old friends coming to visit my town! So I’ve been reciprocating and don’t hit the courthouse clear all button until I see who has been by.

  2. I have a new-item-and-donuts-disappearing act. I bought Gil’s Cars and the CarGo deal yesterday, but when I opened the game today they’ve disappeared along with the donuts I bought them with. Weirdly I didn’t lose progress on the tasks I was doing , it was just the third act offerings that vanished.

  3. I was amused by the Gil deal opening dialogue – it told me what I already know, that a cool car makes you cool 🙂

    Well, as much as a 300hp Jaguar can do for a bearded, sandal-wearing retired guy!

  4. Happy Sunday everyone.

    Yesterday morning I completed my Daily Task and I think I received a
    Broken Token (?)
    As a reward.
    I had other obligations and moved on. Today, I don’t see it. Don’t see a use for it. Did I dream it?

  5. The CarGo Smart Car is so…so…so…BORING!!! It’s just another version of the Street Cleaner.

    • mr.rooney.to.you

      Not there yet but very disappointing, I though we would eventually have some character car tasks

    • It’s exactly what I thought it would be (and said in the spoiler video)…

      • mr.rooney.to.you

        Didn’t watch the spoilers video but was hopeful 😂

      • Tappers really need to watch the TSTO Addicts YouTube videos, because you put a lot of effort revealing without being too spoiler about it …. I had hopes for an NPC – and I hate them – only to learn my lesson EA is just L-EA-Z-Y!) 🙄

        Having fun with the Premium Character Combo ! 👍🏻

    • Thanks for the heads up regarding the NPC CarGo (such a shame that EA was L-EA-Z-Y when there was an opportunity to do something clever and funny!)

      Oh well I will at least enjoy Prize 3 and Prize 4 (along with the Premium Character Combo) but not bothered to tap for Prize 5. 🙄

  6. Out of curiosity I actually decided to Tap on a Sunday and spend the sprinkles for Act 3’s Premium Character Combo (2 Characters – Antoine and Zora + the CarGo Building!)

    _2 Premium Characters (twice the XP and $)
    _Big Building (they all are) with recycled sounds from Futuristic Content (going back to 2017!)

    I ♥️ ’em both! 👍🏻

    I lol’d 😂 at the Gil Deal (if Jesus Christ Super Car was separate for 20 🍩’s? I’d spend the sprinkles for it – but I don’t need 5 Cars!)

    Act 3 leaves me going 🤔 because there’s New Content I want:


    Prize 3 – Duke Druther’s Auto Detailing Billboard
    Prize 4 – Springfield Car Wash
    Prize 5 – CarGo Smart Car (it’s an NPC, but I kinda want to see if it will actually drive around and heckle Homer Simpson – lol!)


    I just gotta Grind thru Crap first:

    Prize 1 – Yokel Truck
    Prize 2 – Parking Garage

    Less Crap to Grind thru to get to the Cream is alright! 😀👍🏻

    Please take the time to read the Character Dialogue (it’s amusing enough!) and Happy Tapping (or take a break and enjoy that weekend with Friends and Family!)

  7. Are Gil’s cars just cars? Do they do anything or have an xp bonus? (Sorry, there’ll probably be a part about our, won’t there?)

    • Exactly my question, Jenn.
      A bunch of cars?
      And yep CJ Brown, as of this point, I’m not falling in love with the prizes.

      • Tracy,
        I have to agree that the majority of the New Content is Crap! There’s little of the New Content that you will want in your Springfield (not worth Grinding, or wasting 🍩’s to expedite for – because it will be in a Mystery Box later!)

        At least I am Act 3’s Premium Character Combo (it’s also the only one I have obtained for this Multi Act Event). 🤔

        Hey have a nice Sunday and Stay Safe! 👍🏻

    • They are just decorations that have some animation when tapped on and no bonus XPs.

    • I wanted to ask exactly this to be honest with you. But I bought it anyhow because I have done a massive amount of donut farming that Donuts are of little value and at least at some point I might find some decorative places for the cars.

      But yeah this is a rather worthless Gil deal without one of them giving a xp Bonus…

  8. mr.rooney.to.you

    Excellent 😎🤓🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇺🇦
