The Springfield Heights Expansion is the third expansion for The Simpsons: Tapped Out. It was released on July 22, 2015, one day after the Tap Ball Event "officially" ended and includes more than 10 new buildings, 20 new decorations, 50 new plots of land and as many boardwalk sections. It comes with a New XP Bonus Feature (details below). Cookie Kwan is the main character of the quest Springfield Heights related to the expansion, as were the Sea Captain and Krusty for the Squidport Expansion and the Krustyland Expansion, respectively, even though her role is limited.
It is accessed via the Springfield Heights Tunnel through the Springfield Mountains, the opening of which has a sign reading "Springfield Heights" on its left (the player's right.) Before the area is unlocked, the tunnel is blocked with rubble and a warning barrier, and the sign is overgrown with vegetation.
Players must be at level 30 to begin the expansion.
Springfield Heights is a wealthy district in Springfield. It is home to one of Springfield's secondary schools, Burns Manor, a shopping promenade, West Oak Street and the Springfield Heights Institute of Technology.
