  • Quick Cash

    Build 2 or more coasters (steel corkscrew or steel twister work best) right beside each other. I mean, right beside, so the station platforms end in adjaent squares. then make the track nothing but a powered launch through a loop or two then return. Do both, or all the coasters the same way, even so they match, set them to synronize, then let them go. the ride is short, and they are always popular for me. and you can easily charge 3 or more dollars a pop. I have had 8 coasters running like this at once. just remember that the entrance and exit has to go somewhere.
    Here is a simple diagram of how you would set up the platforms for six of these coasters running together:
    EE - entrance and exit
    = - station platform
    - - track

    EE======------

    I hope this explains it. I never have any problem meating goals, both number of guests and rating, or for the park value goals.

    You are on your own for the paths to and from the rides. ;)

Roller Coaster Tycoon Glitches

    Raise one square of land with the shovel. Now choose a guest and put them there. Raise the water level until they are drowning. When they start drowning lower the water level as fast as you can. When the water goes below ground the guest will keep drowning in the square of land.

    To get more money, have a free entry price, and charge 5.00 for large rollercoasters, and the lower the intensity of the rollercoaster, go down 50 cents in price. Keep all thrill rides at 2.00, and all gentle rides at 1.00, and all water rides between 2.50 to 3.50.

  • Wall Thriller

    A nice addition to a rollercoaster ride is a Wall thriller. If the rollercoaster you're using has the "corkscrew" option select it (either left or right.) It will automatically switch to the opposite side (left to right visa versa.) but all you need to do is select the the same thing(left or right corkscrew.) now you'll have a sort-of U-turn. stick a wall or something in front of the U-turn and it'll look like the rollercoaster will slam into the wall.

  • Mutalate Your Park

    Get as many guests in your park, then undo the path to the exit. have no handymen and run only high barf rated rides. also have no garbage cans and lots of food stands, then, eventually remove the benches,(don't forget to remove the bathrooms first
    Submitted by Stinging Mantis
  • Drowning Unwanted Guests

    First you click on the guest. Then you pick them up. bring them over to the water and drop them. They will swing their arms for a while and then they will drown.

  • Launching Coaster Cars

    This is more of a fun thing than a cheat. Start your park and wait until your scientist guys create the Steel Coasters. Then select the Shuttle Loop. Change the type to Powered Launch Mode and set the speed to 60mph. Delete the last section of track and create the entrance and exit. Then open the ride and watch the cars fly!
    Submitted by MacDaddyFat
  • No Way Out' Theme Park!

    To make sure no one leaves your park, put a no entry sign near the exit. To do this go to the scenery icon, press it and look for the sign, put it near the exit and press that no entry button. And if by magic non of your guests wants to leave the park, HOO HA HA!

  • Guests Falling To the Center Of the Earth

    First get a few thousand dollars cause this may take a while. Somewhere in your park raise the land as far up as it can go and put a guest up there (it also works with handymen etc.). Then lower the land as fast as you can. And when the guest has fallen a little bit, raise the land really quickly and if you did it right your guest should go bye bye to the center of the Earth. This cheat does not lower your park rating. A message wont come up he will just disappear.
    Submitted by Roller Coaster
  • Killing Guests

    First, select a rollercoaster that has a "powered Launch" or "Reverse incline" feature. Then build some parts of the rollercoaster(don't complete it!) Make sure that 1.people are on the ride 2.the ride has enough speed to fly off the track and 3.the ride is on(running.) If you did everything right, the rollercoaster(trians&cars) will burst into flames and crash!

  • Give the Mad Ones some Space

    If their are people that are very mad, the only thing you need to do is lower a block of land and place them in. It's like a time out for guests. If you place them in, then after a while, they will become happy faster than usual.
    Submitted by None
  • Faster go-karts.

    To make a guest go faster in his go-kart, you can either name the guest Damon Hill OR you can call him Michael Schumacher and it will have the same effect. And also, because these two guys go so fast, they want to try the ride again and again. If not instantly, they will sometime return to the ride. It's great fun to see the two racers overtake the others. Well, good luck!

  • Hire Einstein

    To extend your research by leaps and bounds, find guest #1 and rename him "E=MC2". Then find guest number #2 and rename him "E=MC3". The two will meet and begin brainstorming. Shortly after they will be asked to be hired as the parks research developers. Say "Yes" and pour your reasearch into the think tank. The following year, research and developement will have grown by leaps and bounds. You will have nearly all the newest rides and a billion dollars to spend

  • Building Tips

    *Building costs
    Construction is cheaper on a level suface than an uneven one.
    *Park layout
    Keep your park layout simple. Too many paths for instance confuse guestand get them lost or mad.
    *Station brakes tip
    Always put brakes just before a station to slow the train to 4mph. This way, when your station brakes fail, you will not lose your roller coasterand get bad publicity.
    *Shops and Stalls
    Park owners can charge the highest prices when their shops are near the back{rear} of the park. {After walking that far, tired and hungry guests are more willing to pay high prices.} However, when they are too closely packed, shop owners may end up competing for customers, causing the overall price to fall.

  • Forest Frontiers

    Rating: 600 | Guests: 250 | This done by: October, year one.

    This one is the easiest one, you can also pass on the tutorial. First of all, chop down all of the trees (the get really annoying later on). Next, you can either build a monorail or start dividing your park up into sections. When building a monorail be sure to put it near the entrance and call it something like 'Forest Frontiers Tours.' Build it as close to the edges as possible, people like fast rides in the middle. Remember though, time is money and this takes up time. Dividing your park up is an attraction to the guests. Try to divide it up into things like 'Roller Coaster World' or 'Penelope Panda's Kids World.' If you're doing a Roller Coaster World, do it at the back of your theme park, where guests will visit last. This has a good effect as they will spend half their day in penelope panda's kids world and just as they want to go home they see the Revenge Coaster and their face brightens up.

  • Dynamite Dunes

    Rating: 600 | Guests: 650 | This done by: October, year three.

    This theme park has only one ride, Dynamite Blaster. It's actually very good but Guests soon become bored. You start off with no staff either so hire some quick. It might be a good idea to close the park and then start work. First of all, you need to straighten out the ground. If you run out of money take a loan from the bank but only take out 5,000 at the most. If you need more money, open your park for a short period. When all the land is straightened out you can begin construction. Start with some small rides like slides and position them near the front. Then start building rides suc as swing ships and more Roller Coasters. Be sure to place Food and Drink stalls so guests don't leave to eat or drink. A thing that you must do is place toilets so people don't leave to go to the loo.

  • Leafy Lake

    Rating: 600 | Guests: 500 | This done by: October, year three

    First of all build a ride (a Roller Coaster would be good) on water or land. Secondly, (even though it seems a lot of work) get rid of all the trees except the willows. If you run out of money, trying to get rid of the trees then open your park. Once you have enough money, close it again and start getting rid of the trees. keep this up until all the trees are gone (except for the willows). Now, to the left, there is quite a large amount of land. You need to raise or lower some of this to make it all even. Then you are free to build loads of Roller Coasters or any other rides in that space. Don't forget to use up some of the water to place rides and the aera around the lake. Place, drnk stands, food stands and toilets frequently.

  • Diamond Heights

    Money: $20,000 | This done by: October, year three

    This is already a thriving theme park and land is scarce. Follow their example by building rides over water and chop down most trees to make space. There is free land covered in trees around the sides and once you get ride of the trees you are able to build many rides. Check the prices, and raise and lower them to attract guests. Place attractions and food/drink stalls which bring in money by the second. Straighten out land slopes which may be small but can hold rides like merry-go-rounds and slides which may be vital.

  • Evergreen Gardens

    Rating: 600 | Guests: 1,000 | This done by: October, year four

    This park is absolutely massive and cutting paths will help. You'll have to destroy some of the scenery (well, a lot actually). Don't destroy all of it though, this may result in bad ratings. Build rides over water as that may be one of the only spaces around. You've got lots of space so destroy and build. You may have to make some sacrifices such as destroying plants, bushes and trees. Any sapce available at all, you'll have to place a ride. Land is precious in this one and it doesn't come easily.

    This park is very small and from past experience (pssst! look away now if you don't want to know what happens in the future of this park!) I have found out that there is a crash on the Big Dipper. To avoid bad publicity click on the stats button and make the maximum waiting time for a full load 5 secs (at least you're safe!). You need another Roller Coaster to attract more people so build a metal or wooden one. Place small rides to fill up gaps and that's all you really need to know.

  • Additional Information:

    You may start off with no staff so it would be best to hire two of each. For entertainers make sure to change their costumes by clicking on the hand button, guests get bored of a panda all the time. For Handymen give some of them territories, perhaps on the path of a very fast ride's exit so they can clean up the vomit.

    Enjoy the great game!

  • Demolish and New Park for Profit

    Start any park and accomplish the objective then after you make more money, demolish the whole thing then built it as the way you wanted from the beginning. and also after you make a new park you will most likely attract more guest and make more money. Keep doing it after you make more profit from each new park. After 30 years you will have more than millions of money.
