How many restaurants & food stalls do I need to maximize the Grub rating?

Last Updated: July 31, 2014.

Grub is the second of the Krust-O-Meter ratings. (For more information about the Krust-O-Meter, see here. For more information about the other Krust-O-Meter ratings and other technical details in the game, see here.)


10 points of Grub gets you 1 star, 30 points gives 2 stars, 70 points 3 stars, 120 points 4 stars, and 180 points 5 stars.

Most of the restaurants and food stalls give 10 Grub points each, but there are a couple which give 20.

Which restaurants and food stalls count towards the Grub rating? See below. You can have multiple numbers of the ones marked with an asterisk (*).

Happy 1 year Anniversary Krustyland!

Hi guys.

Believe it or not but on this day, July the 31st (August 1st in the east), one year ago, Krustyland was first introduced to us. So let’s all say a wonderful happy birthday to Krustyland. The forgotten screen (well I forget to go half of the time and I’m sure you guys proberly do too) has now turned one so let’s celebrate by talking about different aspects of the themepark, including our writers’ personal opinions and aspirations (past, present and future) and their own favourite personal design in their own park (if they have one).20140721-115235-42755447.jpg

How many Krustyland rides do I need to maximize the Nausea rating?

Last Updated: July 29, 2014.

Nausea is the first of the Krust-O-Meter ratings. (For more information about the Krust-O-Meter, see here. For more information about the other Krust-O-Meter ratings and other technical details in the game, see here.)


10 points of Nausea gets you 1 star, 20 points gives 2 stars, 40 points 3 stars, 60 points 4 stars, and 70 points 5 stars. It is the easiest of the ratings to maximize as every ride you build adds 10 points to the rating, plus there is one decoration which adds 5 points.

Which rides count towards the Nausea rating?

Should I Buy…….The Unoriginal Log Ride? – Premium Guide

Before we get to the actual fun and enjoyment let me start by saying this was posted a few days ago and due to off-topic, rude and inappropriate comments we had to disable commenting for this post. I have turned commenting back on because the point here is to discuss these items and posts with each other in a FRIENDLY, HELPFUL, RESPECTFUL manner. Please keep comments in line with the topic of the post. Any comment that isn’t regarding this item or that are rude or disrespectful to our team or other readers will be removed and you may face being blocked from ever commenting here again. We’re here to help and give players a nice place to come and talk about the GAME. Thank you.

Hey folks! Level 43 is now upon us and has brought us the first ever Krustyland-only level update. It came in near perfect timing too as the one year anniversary of Krustyland’s release is one week away, July 31st. Finally after nearly 12 months of little to no additions to our theme parks EA breathes new life into our all but forgotten lands. There are a few premium offerings with Level 43, the one I’m going to cover is Krusty’s Unoriginal Log Ride. Hopefully, by the time you’ve finished reading this post I would have helped to answer the question, Should I Buy the Unoriginal Log Ride?

Well, I’d like to start off by saying this is my 50th post on TopiX, as well as my 45th Outsiders’ Musings (including at Tips), and only a few weeks before the year anniversary of this site. Thank you to all my loyal readers who take a look every weekend.

The Simpsons Comic Con 2014

Hello Tappers!

Comic-Con is celebrating a very important anniversary today – 25 years of The Simpsons! Today in the famous Ballroom 20, The Simpsons panel featuring Matt Groening, Al Jean, Mike Anderson and David Silverman arrived at Comic Con to speak about The Simpsons! In this post we will be looking at The Simpsons Comic Con 2014 and what happened. The time was 10am PT and The Simpsons panelists arrived!:

10:01 – Here we go! Time to kick off this panel – here come the panelists Mike Anderson, David Silverman, Al Jean and Matt Groening of course!

10:02 – So first thing’s first – er, what’s coming up? Well Mike tells us the animation for the crossover with Futurama is “awesome” and “really hot”.


10:02 – Matt tells us there will be “a little Ralph Wiggum” this season… but we’re getting clips now!10:05 – We got an amazing trailer for FXX’s marathon of every episode ever (it was an apocalyptic wasteland while everyone watched), a sneak at the opening to the Futurama crossover – with Homer singing to the theme tune! – and a clip of Lisa worrying about Homer’s health as he struggles with a sleep mask. Don’t worry – he’s not going to be the one that dies! We’ve been promised! That video can be found here.

10:06 – Mike tells us The Simpsons will age – but only by one day!

10:06 – We’re on to fan questions – this viewer wants to know about the timing of Treehouse of Horror. It’s normally pre-empted by the World Series, but it’s going to be on October 19 this year – before Halloween!

 10:07 – Al jokes that as well as the Family Guy and Futurama crossovers and the death episode – we’ll get a Scooby Doo crossover! “One of those isn’t true,” he jokes.
