Destination Springfield: Norbert Walkthrough

Norbert Van Houten is ready to join our town, but we’ve to complete his tasks first! Join us right after the jump for his adventures’ walkthrough!

After unlocking the 1st and 2nd Lost Luggage Mystery Box you unlock some text by him:

Golden Train Teaser Pt. 1

Auto starts

Milhouse: What’s your next thrilling international adventure, Uncle Norbert?
Lisa: Yes, what culturally significant artifact will you be stealing from exploited natives to sell to the highest bidder?
Norbert: “The Golden Train”! Forged in Babylonia five thousand years ago.
Lisa: That’s silly. Babylonians didn’t have trains.
Norbert: Exactly. So either aliens gave them a choo choo, or someone did a “Back to the Future III”.
Milhouse: Both plausible!

Golden Train Teaser Pt. 2

Auto starts

Milhouse: Uncle Norbert, you’re sending Springfielders to find clues to the whereabouts of the Golden Train.
Milhouse: But, shouldn’t you be doing that yourself? I mean, you’re the swashbuckling adventurer.
Norbert: Ye-es. But I thought someone else might like the fun of getting killed searching for cursed ancient artifacts.
Milhouse: That’s so nice of you!

Upon starting a new day in Norbert’s Adventure Tasks, he’ll start a quick random dialogue:

Generic Dialogue Intro

Norbert starts

Norbert: Another day, another transcontinental flight in a seat next to the bathroom.

Norbert: Another day!
Sea Captain: Arrr! More plundering the world’s precious ancient artifacts.
Norbert: We prefer to call it “confrontational antiquing.”

Norbert: Fly to enough places, and we’ll eventually find the clues we need.

Norbert: Hopefully today’s treasures are in countries where they have Krusty Burgers.

Norbert: Let’s see what perilous tasks we have available today.

Lisa: Those animals are both extinct!

  1. In my task bar I’m on Norbert Van Wow-ton to 2 – unlock Norbert’s plane, but no missions are popping up. I’m done with my flights so just doing the random ones. How do I complete this quest?


    1. Just like in act 1 and 2 complete another day of his tasks and it will be the prize


    2. That task should trigger tomorrow. youve done the tasks for today so wait until 4am est/10am cet and they should come


  2. On part one where you need to complete the sending someone away 7 times mine has been stuck on part 6 for last few days and i have done it 3 times every day?

    I wasn’t able to play much on Act 1 and missed out on the Globe. I am due to get the Plane in a few hours! Will I still be able to get the Globe and the Golden Train? Thanks in advance for your help!


      1. JoannaRosemary13 02/20/2017 — 18:23

        Thanks for your reply! I am disappointed about the Globe but pleased about the Train 😊


  4. I’m not sure whats going on but i have been meticulously collecting everything from neighbours, tapping ever item in my Springfield, and keeping people flying – to the point I’ve run out of places to send people and still have 4-8 hours left on the task, but i never got the Leather Plane 😦 – what have i missed?


    1. The leather plane just like the globe will be unlocked once you complete 8 days of norbert challenges


      1. But I’ve been competing everything to the point of “nothing further to do” and other spring fields I’ve visited already have the leather plane


        1. it’s probably a glitch on the game or… other means. cause you can’t get it yet


          1. Thanks i got it this morning

            Really odd how some people had it 5 days ago. It shouldn’t have been physically possible


  5. Can every character do tasks in Norberts challenges? Even stampy the elephant? The character to do todays 2nd task isnt in the list of characters to choose from.


    1. if you don’t have the correct destinations, unfortunatly you need to clear the available ones to get new ones including the correct one
