The SimCity BuildIt Guide to Getting Golden Keys Fast!

Golden Keys are the ultimate currency in SimCity BuildIt as they cannot be bought with Simoleans or SimCash but are essential for purchasing premium building specializations for parks, education, transportation, beach, entertainment, mountain, gambling, landmarks and worship which help boost your city's population and increase their happiness.

The only way to get your hands on some Golden Keys is by earning them through completing tasks via one of the two following methods:

 

Cargo Shipments


Cargo Dock Shipment Orders for Golden Keys

Once you have unlocked your Cargo Dock you will begin to receive cargo shipment orders for 3 different types and numbers of items from your factories and stores in which you have 18 hours to find the required items and complete the order to receive 1 Golden Key.

Provided that you complete an order that will arrive every 6 hours then you can soon build up a decent amount of Golden Keys to use in buying your first premium buildings.

 

Dr. Vu Tower Disaster Challenges


Dr. Vu Tower Disaster Challenges for Golden Keys

After reaching 90,000 Sim City population and paying to unlock Dr. Vu's Tower you are suddenly able to unleash an unlimited number of Disaster Challenges upon your city by giving Dr. Vu some Batteries, Launchers and Gloves each time you want to create natural disasters that destroy your buildings and require you to rebuild them.

The method to this madness is that for each building you rebuild you can receive up to multiple Golden Keys and since several buildings can be destroyed during each challenge this means you can quickly generate a larger number of Golden Keys much faster than by fulfilling Cargo Shipment Orders.

So there you have it - the only two ways to generate Golden Keys to use in boosting your city to bigger and brighter things!
