Hint: Helping sick guests:
Place plenty of benches near the roller coaster exit paths. Sick guests will sit there after the ride, allowing them to eventually feel better. Also place benches by snack bars.
Pick up sick guests and let them sit like that for a while.
Hint: Keeping guests happy:
A clean park is a happy park.
Make a plot of land away from the rest of you park. Make it as nice as possible, with flowers, trees, fences, fountains, etc. Build one of each type of shop/stall on that land. Make a path so that the people that will visit have somewhere to walk. Hire three entertainers, one handyman, and one security guard. Build benches and trash cans. Find mad people and place them on this secluded plot of land in the middle of nowhere. Press I on their window to monitor them. When they are happy, put them back in your park, but keep monitoring them.
Hint: Clapping guests:
Before you complete a mission go to a location that has a lot of guests. When the mission is over they will all start to clap.
Hint: Killing guests:
Build a roller coaster or a whoa belly tower. With the roller coaster, make it a power launch mode and make it fly off the track. Do not test it, just open. With the tower, build it up approximately three times and put it on full speed. Do not test it and people will fly off as they are on it.
Make a shuttle loop roller coaster, have it power launched, with a speed of 60 mph.
Create a large square of road. When guests walk on it, they will become stuck. When nobody is on a smaller square, delete it. When you have one or two of three squares remaining, build water on them to drown all the guests.
Put some water in front of an exit to a ride. All people that get on the ride will drown.
Dig a large hole and place a large amount of guests in it. Raise the water level to watch a mass drowning of guests.
Hint: Disappearing guests:
Build a path underground. When a guest walks on the path, delete the piece of footpath that they are on. They will start to fall and will disappear from the guest list. You can also do this with workers.
Build a mountain and put a guest on top. Keep making it go up, then down. In a few seconds, the guest will be falling.
Hint: Angry guests:
Click on a guest and leave it on for a long time. He will get very angry.
Hint: Build underground:
Raise or lower land with the shovel. Then, go to the eye at the top of the screen. You should be able to see and build underground.
Hint: Keep ride's popularity:
To keep a scary ride's popularity, delete a segment of track and replace it with the same item. The guests will be fooled into thinking that the ride has been improved and will continue going to it.
Hint: No handymen for grass cutting:
You can mow the grass yourself by using the raise/lower ground tool. Just click on the place that needs to be mowed.
Hint: Kill weeds without mowing:
Click on a construction button (such as leveling land), then click on a weed. This will allow you to remove weeds without mowing the landscape.
Hint: See through bathrooms:
Build a bathroom and when someone enters click on the eye on top and choose "See Though Rides".
Hint: Quacking ducks:
Click on a duck when the hand appears to make them quack.
Hint: Easy money:
Open a ride and as soon as it is full, double click on close to get the money the guests paid for the ride.
When your park has enough money to afford all of advertisement campaigns, put all of them on. Then, hike the entry price to $50. Crowds will come swarming in because of the advertisements and will pay $50 to enter. This will result in quick and easy money.
Hint: Buying more land:
To buy more land, just clock on the front gate. Go to the grid and keep this window open. Go to the edge of your park, and wherever there is a white sign you can buy land. Note: Not all places sell land.
Hint: Recovering from ride crashes:
Use the following trick to avoid demolishing an entire ride after a crash. Once the ride crashes, the light will turn red and the ride will stop. A mechanic should appear and fix it. After he fixes it, press the "Stop" button twice, then the green button. If done correctly, the ride will start again.
If a ride crashes some people will begin saying that it is not safe and they will not go on it.T o fix this problem, just demolish the ride and build the same ride over again.
Hint: Change ride settings without losing guests:
Pause game play. Click on the ride to which the changes are to be made. Close the ride. Make the necessary changes and open the ride again. Then, resume game play. This will keep guests from leaving your lines when making changes. Note: This will make anyone on the ride get off if the car types or launch modes are changed.
Hint: Build on high places:
When the message "Too high for supports" appears, just raise the land where you want to build.
Hint: Floating supports:
Raise the elevation of the land and build a structure such as an ice cream, pizza, or drink stall. Then lower the elevation and place another stall in the same location. The game will make the supports float.
Hint: Falling guest:
Pause game play and click on a guest. Rapidly click on the pincer tool about 30 or 40 times, then resume the game. The guest should be falling from a very high place.
Hint: Have guests pay all their money:
Have at least one building or ride in your park, . Look for a person that is walking towards the front gate to get in. Click on them and see how much money they have. Do not close that window. Click on the entrance and quickly change the entrance fee to the amount of money that they have. Also keep this window open. Cover the actual entrance with the entrance window so you can not see it. Now watch the guest window and when the guest walks in, he or she will have spent all their money. To make more guests enter, lower the entrance fee, wait for another person to appear, then repeat the process. You can do this to more one guest at a time by clicking on more then one person and going to their money screen.
If a person is walking towards the front gate, they will pay anything to get in, as long as they can afford it.
Hint: Better shop and stall placement:
Put shops and stalls near the rear of the park, not at the entrance. Once tired and hungry guests have walked all the way to the back, they will be more than willing to pay higher prices for snacks.
Hint: Easy money
When in Dynamic Dunes go to the Dynamic Blaster roller coaster. Set the price to t $3, wait until you get a very long line, then hike the price up to about $10. Every person in that line will have to pay $10 to ride. Note: Using a higher price may cause everyone to leave the line.
Hint: Dinky Park level:
On the Dinky Park level, research roller coasters until you get the Steel Roller Coaster. Then, buy some land on the outside of your park and build a shuttle loop. Set the price to $2.00 and make sure you have the queue line long. When that line fills up, build another Shuttle Loop far away and also make it $2.00.
Hint: Park Information:
If you click on the fence you will return to the entrance with the Park Information.
Hint: Faster movement over land:
Instead of moving the mouse to get to an area on the plot of land you own, click the Right Mouse Button. Hold it down and drag the mouse to your desired destination.
Hint: Faster research:
Go to research and look under funding. There will be a lot of items check-marked, such as Shop and Stalls, Roller Coasters, etc. Go to maximum funding and choose only one item to check-mark to get faster research.
Hint: Display the date:
Move the pointer to where the month is shown, above the weather. Hold the mouse there until the date appears.
Hint: Balloon display:
If you complete a scenario objective, all the guests with balloons will release them at the same time.
Hint: Pop balloons:
When someone releases a balloon, click on it to pop it.
Sell lots of balloons at a really low price. When you complete the mission you can pop a large number of balloons.
Hint: Cleaning paths:
Simply place a new pathway over a dirty path to quickly clean it.
Hint: Increase park rating:
Find all of the guests who are not happy and want to go home -- the sad people do not count. Take the angry people and drown them. Eventually your park rating will go up 100 to 200 points.
Set your research to just roller coasters until you receive a steel or inverted steel coaster. Build a lot of power launched mode rolle rcoasters( such as the Shuttle Loop). This should increase your park rating and guest numbers.
Glitch: Drowning in mid-air:
Build a section or two of water, pick up a person, and drop him in the water. He will begin to drown. Lower the water back to land, and will see a half person drowning in mid-air.
Glitch: Drowning on the ground:
Place a guest on a piece of land that is slanted half in the water and half above the water. He will start walking, then drown while on the ground.
Glitch: Ghost drowning elephants:
Go to the "Buy Person" screen. Select "Entertainer". While you still setting the location for the first time (only), drop the person. Pick them up, drop them, and pick them up. You should see two elephants (or whatever animal you select) floating in the water for about ten seconds. Remember to take them out after the second drop.
Glitch: Guests fall underground:
Create a path underground and wait for a guest to go on it. Quickly delete the path while they are on it. They will fall underground and eventually disappear. The person will no longer be in your park, but there will be no message indicating that he or she is gone. This will not affect your park rating.
Glitch: Row a boat in mid-air:
If a guest is freely rowing around a lake, lower the land where the person is rowing and they will appear to be rowing in midair.
Glitch: Guests walking on water:
Build a path directly on the water level. Change to the underground view option. The guests will look like they are walking on the water.
Glitch: Floating guest:
Pick up a guest, then press [Backspace] when he or she is dropped. If done correctly, the guest will hang in mid-air for a few minutes.
Glitch: Slowly falling guest:
Raise the land very high and place people on top of it. Lower the land very fast and the people will slowly fall.
Glitch: Delayed pop:
When a guest lets go of their balloon, pause the game; click on the balloon to pop it, then go in a different direction until you can no longer see the balloon, and its popped. When you click on it you will hear a pop, but the balloon looks the same, moving away, and then back changes it to a popped balloon.
Get the Balloon Stall, then click on somebody that is holding a balloon. Put them in the water, then take them out. If done correctly, the guest will leave a trail of half balloons.
Raise up a square of land, place a mad person with a balloon on it. A row of half balloons will follow them.
