View Full Version : Scenario Strategy Guides Consolidated

This a list of various strategy guides here in the forums for the various scenarios. These guides are designed to help you get to Tycoon level without destroying the parks. All these guides point you in the direction of "winning" without the need to employ a cheat. There seems to be a trend for some other users to post cheats onto the strategy guides linked here. You do not need to follow their advice in order to "win."

Cybinary has helped out a lot with the release of the expansions and a round of thanks to him... As you read through these you will find strategies that build upon one another until you are able to tackle virtually any of the scenarios. In each case where a picture set has been made available, the At Start picture is the shot of the park when you win the Apprentice level. The Won is when you have become a Tycoon. These of course are suggestions based on the write-ups and ones that did succeed. We expect you will also come up with your own unique combinations of Rides, Shops, Stalls and placements to make a great park.

I read through the scenario and am in the process of doing what is suggested (except for blocking off the paths - get to that next!) but, the train ride is not complete and isn't that how new peeps get to the park??

HELP! what's needed? I can't seem to place the entrance and exit!

Gabby

Ah, you are seeing part of the park decorations from Frontier. You can ride that train in Coaster Cam and crash as I remember... It is outside the park so you really have no control over it. The peeps come from the main station, so it is an illusion that they use to get to the amusement park from their parking lots... Ultimately you do not have to worry about it.

I have made it all the way through to the end of RCT3, however I am stuck at having the VIP seeing the fireworks show!!! I put like 10 different fireworks shows together, and nothing is working...why won't he look at them??????


Thanks for any infor!!!

let him stand next to a show. then he will look!

Put a couple of waypoints right on the path next to the fireworks show. He will walk around following the waypoints and look at the show. This isn't hard. You can do it.

omg i need these soooo badly...island hopping i kept thinking that the coasters had to be over 50 mph and then the altitude for the other scenario i thought had to be over 90 feet or whatever...omg thank you so much...i can finally finish the last scenarios!!!

Thanks for these. Had more or less finished all scenarios but this helped enormously.

Am now starting National Treasure again!!!

Agree with you though. No point in just trying to beat the scenario. You want the parks to look and feel good too!!

Thanks again

Thanks for the hints, I love them. I'm restarting my Soaked scenarios using a few of your ideas.

I do have a question, though. Possibly the wrong thread, but...I need help on the coaster challenge in World of the Sea. I'm terrible at coaster design, I've 'coasted' on the pre-builts, but for this I just cn't get the speed. any suggestions?

anyone have any tips for the last soaked scenario?

rhdy586
09-29-2005, 12:26 PM
For the last Soaked scenario, my biggest problem was the park rating of 850. I would get a couple months above 850, then the trash would get out of hand and I'd drop (one time I noticed, it dropped to 848 and then went back up :sour: ). I finally let more money build up, added more thrill rides to increase the park rating, and to take care of the trash, I ended up with 6 janitors.
I'm not good at building coasters or theming rides, so I didn't get either bonus challenge.

I have played the last Soaked! scenerio before, but I didn't get to finish it. It doesn't seem so hard to beat. I don't really have any tips except for charging rides by excitment, making small and very thrilling rides, and adding other attractions along the paths.

I hope you finish putting the guides together. These are very helpful. http://instagiber.net/smiliesdotcom/contrib/sally/talker.gif


For La-La Land, for the theme areas, you don't need rides to put in them, just some themed scenery! http://instagiber.net/smiliesdotcom/cwm/cwm/spin2.gif

Thabkyou I finally got through La la land, although had I realised registering on this site was to be so difficult ... It should have been a breeze.... so where can I moan to about the strings of letters that are barely legible.. I have limited Eyesight and I wasn't sure if a H was a m or A N / it took me 8 tries then I got my kid to see for me... this site is not disabled friendly i see, but i wanted to join and say thankyou to the help given on La la land.. Now I tackle money pit.. here goes!!!!!

just one little ? is it possible to rotate your screen in the game or is it only the one view available...cause if there is a way i cant figure it out. I remeber the original zoo tycoon u were able to rotate your viewing.

DWWilkin
04-06-2006, 06:28 PM
AS I recall, if you hold down both mouse buttons, then move the cursor that rotates...

I am getting really annoyed by the Mountain Rescue and La La Land.. In La La Land I cant get there park opnion to go up at all. I had ALOT of trees, 3 rides, figures and 2 stalls in each part. and it didnt move at all.

Then in Mountain Rescue I dont understand the alt. thing.. HELP! What coasters do I use?

You can PM me or email me.. thanks.

Windylin
07-09-2006, 07:03 PM
I had a hard time with that one too. They want a ride that exceeds the Altitude level.:heart:

07-10-2006, 09:33 AM

I know that im horrible at rct but i cant get past vanilla hills, i cant get my park value up to $100,000. I have got to 84,000 but after i took some things down and moved them and added new stuff it went to 22K now its at 65,000 but cant get it much higher, I have about 750 guests in the park but they are all at the gate and cant get in theres at least 75 guests at the entrance gate and wont go further...

03-12-2009, 02:46 PM
Sounds like you somehow closed your park.

SeaWorld_FL4eva
03-12-2009, 02:51 PM
thats what i thought too, but the flag was still green, the count would go up every 10 mins or so but still no guests got in...

DWWilkin
03-12-2009, 02:51 PM
There have been path problems with the peeps on occasion. Are you up to date with the patches.

One of the glitches we used to document was when a hundred+ peeps would stand in one square and not do anything. You could use the tweezers and start moving them all out.

Put check to make sure you are up-to-date. Shut down the park and get everyone out, make sure your paths are good, then reopen.

03-12-2009, 03:02 PM
it does look like the first tile after the gate is messed up a little bit, yes should be all updated though, im going to try something in a few maybe that will help but any advice on vanilla hills?

Indeed i have thoughts on how to win Vanilla Hills. The first post in this thread sends you to my tutorial on that, but here it is again:

http://www.ataricommunity.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=443428


I have played it a great deal lately though

Buy an info booth, a restroom a drink stall, a burger joint, a merry go round, all the other thrill rides, build a couple premade coasters and that should be what you need to win. If you are not getting enough cash, raise the prices.

Did you get the peeps to come into your park?

SeaWorld_FL4eva
03-12-2009, 04:50 PM
Yes got the peeps in, it was an issue that i did on mistake with the ground making it higher.

But going to work on 100 K now

got up to $93,000 but cant seem to get it higher, i have two rides at $10.00 per peep and im getting it but not seeming to help any, should i put another ride in if i can fit it?

DWWilkin
03-12-2009, 07:06 PM
I am sure that success is based on Park Value, so add rides. Buy more rides and place them about the park. Landscape more. That will increase the park value.
