The Laboratory is unlocked at level 18. It costs 1,800 coins and requires 560 population.
You can create and activate special boosters at the lab to temporarily supercharge your town's crop yields, factory production, and much more. Some of them can be activated by using gems (topaz, emerald, and ruby) which can be earned by sending planes or found in numerous places. Others are only available as rewards in events, regatta and yacht club.
There are 9 boosters which you can activate with gems:
- If you have won/bought a booster you will see a number (1) after it. This means you can use it without depleting your store of gems.
- You can activate a booster by dragging and dropping it onto the Laboratory's blue screen.
- Two identical boosters cannot be activated at the same time.
- You can have a maximum of 3 boosters active at once. If you have 3 boosters active at the same time, you can cancel one of them by pressing the x to the right. Any time left for the booster is lost.
- Note: You can copy the direct links to boosters by copying the link for any booster name.
