Let’s Tap

When you tap on a building to collect money, it expands into multiple piles of money and XP. From there you can continually tap on each pile until everything has been collected. Alternatively you can just tap once and wait a few seconds for everything to be collected automatically.

If you haven’t switched on the confirm donut spend option, you’re probably best just tapping once and waiting for everything to be collected automatically, or else you’ll run a much higher risk of rushing tasks you aren’t looking to rush.

Should I Buy the Itchy and Scratchy Mascots?

Krustyland has a total of three mascots available, and two of them require that you spend donuts to add them to your amusement park. The one that doesn’t require donuts is Poochie, who costs just 2,500 tickets. You only need one of these mascots in your park, and that is only because it is required to move the quest line along.

These three mascots are non-playable characters, and they offer no bonuses whatsoever. All they do is walk around the park, that’s it. The only benefit to purchasing the Itchy and Scratchy mascots is to complete the Krustyland Mascot character set, which does get you something. Of course you could just enjoy the characters. Generally speaking though, NPCs aren’t the best investment.


  • They have voices, unlike most NPCs
  • You can with them as prizes if you try your luck with a Laffy Meal


  • They do not earn any tickets
  • They are quite expensive at 60 donuts a piece
  • They will not increase any stat on your Krust-O-Meter

Broadcast Options at Channel 6

Channel 6 is one of the few buildings in the game that allow you to choose which task to run, as oppose to simply repeating the same set task over and over. There are now seven programming options available at the station, though four of them require the purchase of premium content. Do not feel obligated to make these purchases though, as you can maximize your output without these extras.

To get a better understanding of the different broadcast options, let’s take a look at them individually.
