The new additions this week haven't added any "top earners" with one exception - - the SHAMROCK PLANT, see below.

The new attraction does not rank very high for earning gold, and COSTS GEMS. Using an average of four collection frequencies (with the specific "gold per hour per square" at 6 hours listed), the ranking of gold earning is:

Cotton Candy Stand 1.38
Ice Cream Stand..... 0.67
Dino Ride............... 0.46
Gift Shop................ 0.48
Sandwich Stand...... 0.44
Hot Dog Stand........ 0.33
Popcorn Stand........ 0.33
Botanical Center..... 0.40
Octopus Carousel... 0.30
Pizza Parlor........... 0.30
Caf?...................... 0.24
First Aid................ 0.22
Nursery................ 0.19
Shamrock Diner..... 0.15 Recycle Center...... 0.22
Ferris Wheel.......... 0.11
Carousel............... 0.05



Next, bonus XP - - attractions and now two new decorations, award bonus XP when purchased. This provides a way to "convert" gold into XP. You can buy multiple items and then either store them or sell them, and use the bonus XP to more quickly bump you up in levels. If you do this you want the lowest "gold per XP" ratio, and the two new decorations now rank at the top of this list, replacing the CAROUSEL:


Shamrock Plant....... 3.5
Pot of Gold ............. 6.0
Carousel................ 8.1
Recycle Center....... 8.8
Botanical Center...... 16.0
Ice Cream Stand..... 17.5
First Aid.................. 18.1
Caf?....................... 19.0
Gift Shop................ 20.0
Hot Dog Stand........ 35.0
Popcorn Stand........ 35.0
Sandwich Stand...... 55.0
Pizza Parlor............. 0.2 gem
Cotton Candy Stand. 0.5 gem
Shamrock Diner....... 0.9 gem
Dino Ride................ 3.3 gem
Ferris Wheel............ 3.3 gem
Octopus Carousel..... 3.8 gem
Nursery................... 7.1 gem
