Around the World Pt. 1

Auto starts

Quimby: The success of Evergreen Terrace's fake Chinese festival has given me a fantastic idea.
Quimby: We make a bunch of little “worlds” - ChinaWorld, FrenchWorld, whatever - and pull in tourists who can't afford to go to the real places.
Marge: Like “Hepcat Center” in that Florida theme park I keep forgetting the name of.
Homer: Or like “Westworld” without the killer robots.
Professor Frink: If it's deathbots you want, I have a self-aware toaster that's in a pretty bad mood.

Task: Make Homer Fear Theme Parks
Time: 6s
Location: Simpson House
If the user has Professor Frink: Task: Make Frink Try to Build a Deathbot

Around the World Pt. 2

Auto starts

Lisa: How are tourists supposed to get to Springfield, anyway?
Lisa: We're surrounded by impassable mountains, empty ocean, and an endless featureless plain.
Homer: We could build an airport.
Quimby: Perfect! The construction companies that fund my campaigns are ready for a boondoggle.
Quimby: I shouldn't say things like that out loud. Still, is it really news I'm corrupt?
System Message: You got a free land token. Buy land to redeem it.

Quest reward: Free Land Token
Task: Build the Airport

Around the World Pt. 3

Auto starts

Moe: This is great. The airport just opened, and already the town is full of tourists.
Quimby: I paid an air traffic controller twenty dollars to divert every plane within five hundred miles here.
Moe: Smart. Now, let's tap these tourists like maple trees for their sweet out-of-town syrup.

Task: Tap Tourists

Tourist: Hey, how come everyone here keeps tapping us tourists?
Snake: Watch out. It's how they distract you while they steal your wallet.
Tourist: Thanks, friend!
Snake: Tap. Yoink!!

Around the World Pt. 4

Auto starts

Quimby: Our town is being flooded by American tourists who want to enjoy our cut-rate collection of fake foreign worlds.
Lisa: But the airport security lines are endless, and planes are stuck on the runway because there aren't enough gates...
Quimby: As usual, Springfield's triumph is America's nightmare.
Milhouse: Look! My uncle Norbert Van Houten, the international adventurer, just landed in his biplane.
Norbert: When I heard you had a nice big airport, I knew I could finally fly in.
Milhouse: But you said you once landed your plane on a Tibetan field the size of a postage stamp.
Norbert: Riiight, that story. Well, if you'd had a postage stamp here, I would've come sooner!

Task: Tap on Norbert
Task: Send Springfielders on Flights [x3]

Kumiko: I just got offered a job as a flight attendant on Anime Airlines.
Kumiko: As long as I wear the right costume.
Comic Book Guy: Take the job. Bring me the left-over pretzel snacks.

Around the World Pt. 5

Auto starts

Tourist: Excuse me, sir, can you direct me to some of the famous sights of Springfield?
Tourist: I hear there’s a Volcano Lair, a Ghost Pirate Ship, and Giant Mechanical Ants.
Homer: Could be. Depends if Skyfinger was willing to pony up for premium items.
Homer: Also, they tend to get moved around a lot.
Homer: Some say a giant baby in the sky gets hold of our world and randomly slides things around while pooping.
Quimby: Maybe. But maybe we just need a Tourist Information Center.

Task: Build the Tourist Information Center
Task: Use the Tourist Information Center

Around the World Pt. 6

Auto starts

Moe: These tourists aren't spending moolah at my bar.
Moe: They're just hanging around the airport trying to get flights outta here.
Quimby: Good luck with that. I have flocks of geese flying around the airport to prevent departures.
Quimby: But maybe we should go on a fact-finding mission to other Springfields, to see how they are encouraging tourism.
Quimby: Wives not allowed on mission!

Task: Tap Attractions in Other Springfields [x3]

Around the World Pt. 7

Auto starts

Homer: Springfield Airport is once again number one… in flight delays and lost luggage.
Lisa: There's a mountain of lost bags behind the airport.
Quimby: Perhaps I shouldn't have given the baggage-handling contract to the company that does city trash compaction.
Homer: Well, as long as the original owners will never, ever get their stuff back, might as well trade it in for SkyCredits.

Task: Build the SkyCredits Reward Center

Around the World Pt. 8

Auto starts

Quimby: Use your SkyCredits to buy fabulous gifts or airline miles.
Quimby: Although certain travel blackout days apply.
Quimby: Actually, you can only use SkyCredits to fly on February 29 of a “century leap year”.
Quimby: So see you in the skies on February 29, 2400!

Task: Purchase an Item at the Reward Center

Quimby: We are doing a great job collecting tourists' pins and stealing their luggage.
Quimby: But believe it or not, tourists want more than that from a travel experience.
Quimby: It's time to open Springfield's FrenchWorld, a celebration of the glories and beauty of France.
Lisa: Where shall we put it?
Quimby: I think there's space between the tire fire and the garbage dump.

Around the World Pt. 9

Auto starts

Quimby: To make Springfield's FrenchWorld seem authentic to tourist rubes, we have to try and be as French as possible.
Quimby: Everyone, do what you would do if you were French!

Quimby: As always, my rip-off suggestion box is open.

  • Hi, @LPNintendoITA . Could you let me know if there are rewards for completing the Around the World questline? Sometimes we get event currency for each quest part and I don't remember if I received those this time. Thanks :)
  • Is there a list of Norbert's Adventure Tasks? Something like:
    1) find a big horse = troy, turkey
    2) suffer a syndrome = stockholm, sweden
    I like toast
  • There is None :(

    Thanks :)

    I don't know about a list but it's always cultural/historical/literary/punny reference and a geographical location. If the reference is confusing, Google the locations available and one of them will match the clue.

    Example: The horse clue also referenced Western Asia and Turkey is in Western Asia. The syndrome clue referenced Europe and Sweden is in Europe.
  • The gag/pun clues are easy to figure out... but if one were to know what the next destination is then one could potentially send characters ahead of time.

    Ah, that would be helpful.
