View Full Version : Island Hopping Scenario

02-05-2005, 05:57 AM
I've read the tips on building/deleting rollercoasters to finish in about 5 minutes flat, but it doesn't seem to be working for me - I can't get my coaster built on a piece of land flat enough so it never gives me enought money to repay the loan!

Anyway, has anyone completed the scenario without doing the delete cheat? Any tips?

Well I got to tycoon, but only by using the rockefeller cheat :(

I just couldn't see a way to make enough money to pay the loan back, and build another coaster! I mean, without spending money to bring in the peeps you can't make any right?

To be honest, I don't remember this one being difficult. Set an affordable coaster somewhere (on the beach/slightly in the water) if you can't be bothered to design one yourself, see if you can increase the no. of cars/trains and raise the price to a level peeps are still willing to pay ($8). Same goes for any other rides you place, charge more. You should be making money in no time!

Maybe I'm just too impatient to wait to earn the money back... :)

Charge $3 for a base $2 ride. Charge $1 for a .50 ride (The Snake Helter Skelter). Charge $4 for the roller coasters. Peeps still keep the queues full enough that every time the ride is over it fills up completly and money rolls in.

Do the strategy of payng off $1000 then using the next money that rolls in to build another ride, and another shop/stall.
