Benefits from Ranking Up

Whenever you rank up, Sophocles will introduce to you a new facility for you to play around with. If you do not install it (for example if it's rubbish), you can get an item instead, corresponding to the facility you skipped over:

If you want to max out the potential of your Festival Plaza, you will absolutely need to rank up your plaza as quick as you can so that you can have all the facilities you want!

Additionally, once you hit rank 40, you can change the music that plays. Good incentive for those who get their jimmies rustled by the same-old, same-old.

You get additional bonuses too, as the following table will detail.
