Another Tip to Avoid Crashes

If you have a coaster with 2 or more trains, at the end, put some brakes, slowly working your way down to 9 mph. This way, if the station brakes fail, the cars will simply bump into each other instead of exploding and killing some guests.

Avoiding Crashes

If you don't want your rollercoaster to crash, then follow these tips:

Set check up time to every 10 minutes

Whenever the rollercoaster breaks down, check the malfunction. If it says brakes failure or station brakes failure, then the rollercoaster might crash.

Save often, because you never know when the rollercoaster may crash.

Best Rollercoaster

To design a fantastic rollercoster, follow these tips:

Have the rollercoaster go underground many times. Guests love the thrill.

Make the ride fly down over water then shoot back up. Water is great ride scenery.

Have many drops, but be careful with the G forces.

Place Jurassic Scenery in creative detail. Jurassic seems to be a very exciting scenery if used properly.

Place scenery and walkways as well as other rides near or over your track. Make the pieces fit the scenery for maximum effect.

Have some parts of the track hidden do your guests will be surprised.

Place On Ride Photos in the best spots for maximum sales.

The Giga coaster works best. Make tall drops and smooth hills and the intensity will only range from 5-7.

Following these tips will create a fantastic coaster. My best is this:

E: 13.98
I: 7.02
N: 2.06

candy apple stalls

If it rains a lot at your park don't get the candy apple stalls. When it rains the guests won't buy them.
Why? It's still a mystery!

Cut Unnecessary Costs

In most of the scenarios, you do have a loan taken out. Each month, you will have to pay some interest, which depends on how much of a loan you have taken out and what the interest rate is. Once you get some steady cash flow, focus on getting rid of your loan, and you will get more cash in your pocket for greater flexibility.

Dinghy Slides Jam

When you have a dinghy slide and lots of people in line and a jam happens when the people on the ride get stuck so instead of closing the ride and all the people in line leave just pause the game and double clik the close flag so that the ride resets to open then when you unpause the game all in line will remain and the ride will resume as normal.

Easy bathroom money

exploding lift

First build the thrill ride 'launched freefall' then set the launch speed to 144km. Watch as the car shoots up the tower and off to the top, to explode when it hits the tower again. If you dont want to kill any guests (always a good idea) set it to 'test' then once it has exploded, just close and open it again and its ready to go.

Get more guests on rollercoasters

Happy Guests

If your guests keep leaving because they aren't happy, a simple remedy is to make a 3X3 footpath island, fill it up with entertainers (BIG HAPPYNESS BOOST- BUT THE ONLY PROBLEM ARISES WHEN PAYDAY COMES) and attach toilets, stalls and (possibly) a ride. This can also heal sick people quickly, as long as you have enough facilities.

Heal Sick Guests Quickly

Dig a 3x3 hole. Place paths and benches everywhere in the hole. When a guest gets sick, put him/her in the hole. They will recover much faster than normal. (this is a good heat to use when you don't have the first aid room)

How to get money easy

First, get a square block from the scenery section. It can be any type of block eg. normal, wooden, metal. Next, place a stack of these bocks in any number (preferably more than 5). Now, do an 8x8 patch of these stacks, all the same height as the first one. Then select the Enterprise ride (if it is available) from the 'build an attraction' section. Place this at ground level 'inside' the 8x8x? (height) square. Place the ride down and it will delete the scenery. This will give you money and then delete the Entereprise to get more money and start again!

keep their food in

if you notice a guest is sick, monitor him/her, and just before they pass up their lunch(they sort of bend down), pick them up and then drop them again(best at a first aid building). this always works, it just needs good timing

Make More Money When Raining

Make sure you have many Information Kiosks areound your park. Go to pricing and make the Umbrella Price as much as you want in a reasonable range (up to $6). If it rains for long enough you make lots of money, because most guests buy Umbrellas when it's raining no matter the price (in reasonable range).

Park Rating Up

If your park rating has started to lower, look around. Check messages. If the guests are complaining about "the disgusting state of the paths in your park," then hire more handymen. If litter, more bins. If vandals, more security guards. Also, straighten the paths the best you can, and hire entertainers.

save money by organising staff

you can save 50% of your money just by assigning a patrol area to one of your staff. engineers should be assigned to patrol next to rides so when they break down/need inspection they are right next to it. this tip is great for security guards. where there are seats/bins, assign a patrol area for a guard. handyman and entertainers should be organised as needed

Stall tips

Place salty food stalls next to drink stalls. Guests get thristy after eating salty foods (ie: popcorn, pretzels, fries)

Place restrooms evenly throughout your park. Place them near intense or nauseating rides and food and drink stalls.

Place information kiosks evenly throughout your park. Don't place too many, but a good idea is to place them by transportation rides.

Have fun with your stalls. Make building over them and create food courts. Creativity is the key to a successful park.

Kill Guests Without Anybody Knowing

To kill a guest without anyone knowing, raise a piece of land a few squares high. Put a guest or a hundred on it. Now raise and lower the land piece up and down quickly and the guests will fall underground into oblivion. The guests die, but no messages appear on the message board, nor does your park rating go down.

Negative Money

To get negative money, you will need to have the Mechanical Style scenery available. Once it is, make a 4x4 platform of metal blocks. Then, stack it so it is 4x4 high. Then, build a Gentle or Thrill ride. You may notice it will cost you negative money to build. Well, this negative money goes directly into your COH, which means you make money. The more expensive the ride is, more money you make.
