EA has been cranking out The Simpsons Tapped Out updates lately. Will there be another one this week? If so, what might be in the Level 33 update?
The rumor mill has Level 33 bringing Lou, Eddie, K9 Officer, and the usually ill-fated Arnie Pye the helicopter reporter. I’m a big fan of aviation so I’m really stoked about this one. And yeah, I was kind of hoping for Patty & Selma; surely they’ll show up soon.
There is another rather strange item rumored. This one makes me feel a little like the universe is yanking my chain. It’s the Sunsphere. It was in the episode the episode
“Bart on the Road” Season 7 Episode 20 (1996)
So why would this be the universe yanking my chain? Because I live a few blocks from it!!. BTW: It’s not now, nor has it ever been a wig shop 😉 It’s also not dilapidated like in the episode either. Here is a picture I took of it while walking in World’s Fair Park a couple of years ago…
Personally as much as I would enjoy having the Sunsphere in my TSTO Springfield, I believe this is a ‘red herring’ like the Giant Toilet that was in rumored about in a previous update but never showed up.
One last thing – this the actual souvenir glass that came with the Sunburst drink.
I got it at the 1982 World’s Fair, in the bar at the top of the Sunsphere…
