    They are a superb quick way to zip around your Springfield, I've already got 2 and place 1 in my landing zone and randomly move the other one so if my neighbors use it they see different parts of my town and I'm going to get the other 2 when available, I'd definitely recommend you get them.

    2 wasn't enough for me. I kept having to move the one to another spot, while the first stayed at the LZ. Basically I need one at the LZ (event), one at the Dump, one at my KEM farm, and one to move around, but probably the Simpsons House/Play-D'oh Factory. So, yes, 4 is a great number of them to have. Get 'em!

    I have been planning on buying these since the start of the event!

    They are a brilliant addition to my town, makes travelling around it much easier, especially after how big my town is now! Plus, the added 1% bonus isn't too bad either :P

    I've been waiting to get them this event and I'm a freemium player. Personally I think they're underrated because I passed on them twice. Now my town is huge and they are very handy! Can visiting friends use them too??

    Is that 1% bonus per teleporter or total for all four?

    It was an instant buy for me too.

    It is one of those items you hear about that nobody every complains about. There has never been anything but a positive buzz about this, so based on that I'd say go for it!

    no, 1% total for all 4

    Specifically, 0.5% for Zeta and Theta.

    Alpha and Omega do not have multipliers.

    instant buy ... quick way to get to SH

    the fact that we can choose which teleport is the destination is fantastic! it will be much easier to get around.

    Remember that clicking on the Monorail Central Terminal's "bulletin board" (or whatever it is) will take you to the train yard like a teleporter. So it's like having 5 teleporters!

    Pffft...I wish! 0.5% for Zeta and Theta but I do think EA should add a 0.5% to Omega and Alpha!

    Agreed, it isn't a must-buy but it is great for people with huge towns! I wouldn't have bought it, but I got 80 donuts just this week from KEM farming and a mystery box! :D

    I'm not sure what you mean. When I click it, it just asks if I want to ride the monorail. How do you do this?

    what is going on with the timing of these items being released in the store?

    i've been hearing people talk about these for days. i haven't seen them to buy.

    today they released some future monument, an obelisk of some kind. idk what the significance of that thing is, but i am interested in the transporters. why haven't i seen them yet?

    If they're not in your store, resync your game.

    We've been talking about them for the past 3 weeks because LPN shared what would be available at the start so we all knew this was coming! :D

    thanks, Echo.

    is there a concrete release and end date for their availability? i don't get why i'm not seeing these.

    I did. I now have 1 on each corner of my town. I was wondering when they were going to finally give us these 2.
    Except my problem with them is remembering their names xD I think I rather have their names be "north, east, south and west" That would be a lot more helpful....

    I bought the first two when they were available during the 2014 Halloween update, and they've been useful in getting from east to west in my town for awhile now, so I got the new ones just now so I can do north and south as well. Well worth the investment.
