On May 6, 2015, EA hit the Tapped Out universe with a two-piece right in the kisser, finally returning the world’s most beloved school workers to our Springfield’s in the form of Lunch Lady Dora and Coach Krupt. Just as we were all tapping like madmen and women in our attempts to rid our world’s of evil Bob clones, BOOM, the party really got going. Well, for those of you who think Level 52 was the only addition to hit with the release, oh, how mistaken you are! Believe it or not, there’s more, and it has nothing to do with Dora, Coach or even the Meat Can full of assorted horse parts.
Mr. Burns has gotten bored with his riches and gives us a neat little “mini-game” that will undoubtedly increase his riches, while working your fingers raw, but in the end you’ll be handsomely rewarded with a fancy new skin for the old cheapskate. Oh and before we go any further, let’s get out the important detail:
- The Money Mountain Mini-Game and the resulting rewards are NOT limited-time. It is a permanent addition to the game so there is no need to stop your Terwilliger progression unless you choose to do so.
The first thing that needs to be discussed is, how does one obtain the Money Mountain and why is it locked if the requirement says you only have to be at Level 40?
As with any “event-type-prize-earning” release such as this, there is always a prerequisite quest that must be completed to get the party started or to essentially activate the game. With the Terwilliger Event pretty much tying up every available character you own this could prove difficult to decipher who does what. Fear not friends! For that is why we are here. You will need the following to activate the option to purchase, place and play the Money Mountain game:
- Reach Level 40
- Must have Smithers free to receive the dialog prompt
- Must have Mr. Burns and Homer free
Having completed all of the above you will then receive a quest called:
Rolling in It
- “Make Homer Enjoy His Day Off “- 4 hours – Simpson House
- “Make Mr. Burns Peruse The Latest Issue Of Snobby Hobbies” – 4 hours – Power Plant Lot
You will now receive a discussion between Mr. Burns and Lisa as to what should Mr. Burns do with his fortune, which will then activate the mini-game:
As you can see it very closely resembles an event menu. There are 11 levels, each with 1 task to complete, as well as an option to rush the task with donuts, in order to advance and each time you progress to the next level your Money Mountain will grow and change in appearance. LetsplaynintendoITA is doing his usual magic working on the walkthroughs for all of you so I’m just going to hit the basics. He’ll provide the full details very soon.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you rush the level up at any point, unless you’ve the Donut spend confirmation on, there will be no stopping in the use of the donuts!

Once you have completed all 11 levels you will then be awarded the new skin for Mr. Burns:
