My first post here - hopefully, I've placed it in the right forum.

I just gained access to the Double-deck Observation Tower ride and I thought it would make a nice addition to the park. However, when I plop it down, it doesn't seem to have the same format as the other rides in that there isn't an automatic "border" created. Not only does it make it difficult to place the entrance and exit, but the fact that there are two entrances leads me to believe that there are peeps getting on the ride without having to pay. It's all very chaotic.

Could someone please post one or two examples of how they've implemented this ride in their game? I'm obviously making this harder than it likely should be, so any suggestions (screenshots are wonderful) would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your time! :)

I guess given enough time, one can figure anything out. :D

Here's what I've come up with:

It seems that after observation, no one is sneaking onto the ride (which, now that I think of it, might be an interesting quirk and require more security guards). The fact that the ride is placed without borders (as opposed to the 3D Cinema) makes things confusing.

The peeps will go through the entry turnstile, and head to the "First Ramp" on the ride. When that level is full, peeps will go to the "Second Ramp". When the ride has completed its circuit, the peeps load and unload through the same ramps.

To give a measure of boundaries to the ride, I've opted to place fencing around the ride as seen in the screenshot.

Hope this helps anyone else when building the Observation Tower.
