Hey folks,

My wooden benches keep getting broken. I figured out that the awful wood-splintering noise was generated when a bench is broken nearby the camera. But I've never noticed anyone vandalizing them (like I did in 1&2), they just up and fall apart after a while. Is this from use or lack of use or what? I have security persons wandering around. Once I actually threw one into a large walkway area and a second later a bench fell apart, so I'm thinking it wasn't vandalized. Any comments?

Also, in Vanilla Hills the rides are breaking down like every time they take off. I've got that Tumbler thing that does an emergency stop almost as soon as it starts practically every time. It's being inspected every 10 minutes, but it breaks down MUCH sooner than that. I know rides deteriorate over time, is it just time to say "I'm sick of this" and destroy it and build something new in its place? I mean this is just ridiculous, I have to micromanage the mechanics to call them to the rides like 5 minutes after their last inspection! Any thoughts?

Thanks for reading,

I noticed huge issues with benches (never noticed the breakdowns one though...not that it didn't happen, just didn't notice) before I updated to patches 1 and 2.

If you haven't already, choose the autoupdate feature and get the patches, that should at least help alleviate the bench problem (I haven't noticed a single one breaking since I updated).

Yeah I did find out that both of these issues were at least alleviated by the patches, silly me for posting :P

Thanks for the reply, though!

In one and two I never noticed a peep breaking something.

I just got RCT3 and Soaked so my game should be up to date. Every bench in the vanilla hills park area is broken. No one uses the park at all so perhaps this is just to show neglect?

Nah, it just shows how cheap those wooden benches are. Throw them away and never use them again. Replace them with the more expensive benches and they will never break.

Wooden benches are the ONLY benches that break. Just don't use them.
