The Lint Ball is one of the amenities in Cosmo's Quickstop. Like all amenities, it can be installed along the outer wall of the Quickstop's large, central room. In campaign mode, the Lint Ball becomes available after the 6 dock layout is obtained.
Using the Lint Ball[edit | edit source]
The Lint Ball is a utility amenity that can provide several powerful bonuses once upgraded. Neither you nor the customers can interact with the Lint Ball. It is a passive amenity that doesn't generate any profit directly. While it is an investment to level up, the Lint Ball can provide higher combo levels, extra time and bonus tip money.
Lint Ball Upgrades[edit | edit source]
Upgrades can be purchased with a Gold Star Sticker once the task has leveled up to an upgrade's corresponding number. Higher level upgrades often require a previous upgrade to be purchased as a prerequisite.

Lint Ball Lore[edit | edit source]
This gigantic ball of dust and debris is one of Cosmo's most cherished possessions. He's been collecting it ever since his larval phase and has only recently thought of displaying it for the public. It's held together by a miniature gravity well and its electromagnetic field readily assimilates any small particles that drift nearby. The the off-putting, yet novel item has won a few awards in the local fair, giving Cosmo the idea of leveraging it as a tourist attraction. Cosmo has even constructed an elaborate display booth and a commemorative plaque for posterity. He hopes it will someday claim the record as the biggest lint ball in the galaxy.
