The Laboratory Complex is a production building located east of the volcano on the Tourist Island. It was added during an update on 04.07.2015 as part of the timed quest called Taming the Volcano.[1]

A total of 140 assets are needed to complete construction of the Laboratory Complex. This is equivalent to 154 Megabucks sm if one were to buy every asset instead of waiting to receive them from neighbors.
