Should I Spend Donuts on Paul Flart and the Mt. Splashmore Slide?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It is update time in Springfield my friends!  And summer is in full swing in our Pocket-Sized Towns!  Of course, an all-new event means all-new premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

  1. If circumstances allowed Alissa and Safi to create another TSTO Addicts YouTube video? I believe Paul Flart and Mt. Splashmore Slide would be one of those Premium Character Combos that would leave everyone talking enthusiastically about (I figured out he’s not voice when I spent the sprinkles, I don’t remember the Character being voiced in the TV Series – I just remember the Character in the Water Slide that’s something I wanted in the Game App!) 😀

    I will admit to being nitpicky, so when my opinion says “this is probably one of the better Character Combos this year” I believe there are enough Tappers that will agree (the only challenge is how much Real Estate do you have in your Springfield, I have learned from Alissa that you should choose what to keep in your Springfield and store anything that you don’t really Tap – another words shrink your Springfield down to something manageable).

    This is the best thing about the Game App, you decide how you Tap, when you Tap, and when you take a break from Tapping. 👍🏻

  2. I grabbed this right away. I used to work in the theme park biz and am now retrofitting the area “north” of Krustyland to build the water park add-on! Love this update!

  3. Greg Jablynski

    So, do I incorporate all the cool water park stuff with Krustyland, or make a separate water park? Decisions, decisions.

    • Good inquiry, Greg 👍🏻
      You could use Pier tiles and create a Water Park in the Ocean adjacent to a Pier (or make it look like an Island).
      That’s what I appreciate about TSTO, a Tapper can decide what to do and create something that looks cool. 😀

      • My ocean is pretty full so I built a pier for Marine land (aquarium, swordfish museum, mapple, shark tanks, etc) and sectioned off a piece of adjacent land with a river for my waterpark.
