O=============================================================================O
|                                                                             |
|Deep in the forest, build a thriving theme park in a large cleared area.     |
|                                                                             |
|OBJECTIVE: To have at least 250 guests in your park at the end of October,   |
|Year 1, with a park rating of at least 600.                                  |
|                                                                             |
O-----------------------------------------------------------------------------O
|                                   Strategy                                  |
O-----------------------------------------------------------------------------O
|                                                                             |
|Start by clicking the finance button with the two coins on it and increase   |
|your loan to the max which is $30,000. Increase funding to your research to  |
|max and check thrill rides and gentle rides only because that's all we want  |
|for this short level, now clear out all of the trees in the park so they     |
|won't be in your way later. Put down both of the roller coasters you have    |
|available to you, place them as close to the park border on the side as you  |
|can just to conserve space. Next place down some gentle and thrill rides and |
|continue to put more down as they come available to you via your research,   |
|now is a good time to hire some handymen, mechanics and security guards... I |
|don't bother hiring entertainers as they do very little for their money. Once|
|you have your rides and staff in place start putting down some food, drink   |
|and bathroom stalls to keep your guests happy, also don't neglect to put down|
|benches and trash cans around your park.                                     |
|                                                                             |
|Now go back into your finances and click on the very last tab which is your  |
|marketing campaign, here you can advertise for your park to increase the     |
|amount of guests that will come to your park. I like to use all of the       |
|advertisements at once to get the maximum number of guests to come to my     |
|park as possible, advertising seems like it is costing you a lot of money but|
|in the long run it's actually making you more money than it is costing...    |
|why? Because the more guests in your park the more they go on your rides and |
|the more money from your rides fatten your wallet. Now that you are done your|
|advertisements just wait for the people to roll into your park which will be |
|a lot more than the 250 required by the end of october, just keep up with the|
|advertisements until the end october and it's an easy win.                   |
|                                                                             |

|                              2. Dynamite Dunes                              |
O=============================================================================O
|                                                                             |
|Built in the middle of the desert, this theme park contains just one roller  |
|coaster but has space for expansion.                                         |
|                                                                             |
|OBJECTIVE: To have at least 650 guests in your park at the end of October,   |
|Year 3, with a park rating of at least 600.                                  |
|                                                                             |
O-----------------------------------------------------------------------------O
|                                   Strategy                                  |
O-----------------------------------------------------------------------------O
|                                                                             |
|Start out the same as before and always by going into your finance options   |
|and increasing your loan to get the most from the bank, now, these are the   |
|easy levels of Roller Coaster Tycoon so most of the strategies are gonna be  |
|the same because it all works to win the level. Increase your research       |
|funding to maximum for roller coasters, thrill rides and gentle rides, if you|
|want you can flatten the land with the raise/lower land option with the      |
|shovel on the button, it will give you more space to put down your rides.    |
|When you have suffient room put down your coasters, thrill rides and gentle  |
|rides to get some guests coming in, as you should be able to see the level   |
|started off with a functioning coaster for you to attract people with.       |
|                                                                             |
|Once you have some rides down and running start up with the staff and then   |
|the food, drink and bathroom stalls for your guests. You can pretty much     |
|complete the objective in less than a year by having 650 or more people in   |
|your park, but, you have to wait out the 3 years to actually finish off the  |
|level. Keep placing down new rides as they come available and don't forget to|
|keep up with that advertising as it really does work to your benefit.        |
|                                                                             |

|Starting from scratch, build a theme park around a large lake.               |
|                                                                             |
|OBJECTIVE: To have at least 500 guests in your park at the end of October,   |
|Year 3, with a park rating of at least 600.                                  |
|                                                                             |
O-----------------------------------------------------------------------------O
|                                   Strategy                                  |
O-----------------------------------------------------------------------------O

|Max out your loan in your finances and set funding for your research to      |
|maximum for roller coasters, thrill rides, gentle rides and shop/stalls. Get |
|rid of the trees around the lake part of the park for now so you have ample  |
|room for your rides, don't let the water intimidate you from building on top |
|of it because the rides will sit on top of the water you just have to make   |
|sure to use bridge/tunnel option for your footpaths to get to your rides.    |
|                                                                             |
|Same as before keep placing down new rides when they come available to you,  |
|if you run out of room just place the new rides at the back of the park      |
|making sure you clear out the trees in the way first. Remember to put down   |
|the shops and stalls for your guests and then just keep up with your         |
|advertising to finish off the level.                                         |
|                                                                             |

O=============================================================================O
|                                                                             |
|Diamond Heights is already a successful theme park with great rides - Develop|
|it to double it's value.                                                     |
|                                                                             |
|OBJECTIVE: To achieve a park value of at least $20,000 at the end of October,|
|Year 3.                                                                      |
|                                                                             |
O-----------------------------------------------------------------------------O
|                                   Strategy                                  |
O-----------------------------------------------------------------------------O
|                                                                             |
|As you can see the objective is a bit different for this level, park value   |
|is the worth of your park... what this means is obviously the worth of your  |
|rides but also how well your park does business wise. Don't confuse your     |
|profit/money with park value because your profit/money is part of your       |
|company value not park value, to check your current park value go into your  |
|finances and look at the bottom right park of the window. It will list your  |
|park and company value here so you know if your above your objective or not. |
|                                                                             |
|Now that that's all straightened up let's get to the level, as you can see   |
|the park has numerous rides already. You can just add on to this park to     |
|increase the park value to which you need to achieve, start like always by   |
|maxing your loan out and increasing your research funding to maximum. Now go |
|into your coasters and you will see the steel roller coaster, this is the    |
|bread and butter of Roller Coaster Tycoon... simply because of the shuttle   |
|loop you can build from it. The shuttle loop is the one of the best profit   |
|makers of all the rides, it is cheap to make and gives a quick but satisfying|
|ride to your guests. Anyways back to the level, the best place to build your |
|new rides for this park is out in the water. I personally like to just delete|
|the miniature railroad in the park because it limits where you can build in  |
|the water and it doesn't make you much money anyways.                        |
|                                                                             |
|You should start by building some shuttle loops, now there is a particular   |
|way I place down the shuttle loops to conserve space but you don't need to do|
|it if you prefer not to or you find something better but I will try to       |
|explain it now. When I put down a shuttle loop I first hit the construction  |
|button on the ride and extend the length of the ride going up still by three |
|lengths, next go into the operations tab with the gears on it and set the    |
|power launch speed to max which is 60 MPH, this will pump up the excitement  |
|on the shuttle loop and will allow you to increase the ride ticket price for |
|it. After one shuttle loop is down I build another but I flip it around the  |
|opposite way first and put the station platform right beside the supports of |
|the last shuttle loop this way it is compacting space, but like I said you   |
|don't have to do it this way if you want.                                    |
|                                                                             |
|Keep putting down rides in the water area to increase your park value but the|
|value of your rides will drop over time and this means your park value will  |
|drop as well, you can add more rides to increase your park value back up or  |
|just replace the old ride with a newer one. More staff and shop/stalls will  |
|be needed to improve your park as well so don't forget about them, just      |
|because |this level isn't about the amount of guests you have in your park   |
|doesn't mean you don't need advertising, like I said advertising makes you   |
|more money than it costs in the long run so use it on this stage as well!.   |
|                                                                             |

|                                                                             |
|Convert the beautiful Evergreen Gardens into a thriving theme park.          |

|OBJECTIVE: To have at least 1000 guests in your park at the end of October,  |
|Year 4, with a park rating of at least 600.                                  |
|                                                                             |

|Raise your loan up to the maximum and increase your research to maximum      |
|funding for roller coasters only for right now just until we get the steel   |
|roller coaster which will come first, after that select thrill rides, gentle |
|rides and shops/stalls. There is a lot of trees and other riff raff in the   |
|way of you putting down some rides so the first thing you will have to do is |
|clear out a big section, the perfect spot is where a big garden of flowers   |
|are just up and to the right of the park entrance. When you clear a big spot |
|out it's best to set up a decent number of shuttle loops to start making some|
|good money, at least 4 but 8 or 10 is a good start. Once they are set up and |
|running advertise some to get more guests to come in and make even more      |
|money.                                                                       |
|                                                                             |
|When the shuttle loops are running good get your shops/stalls up and make    |
|sure you have your staff in order, by now you should be making good money and|
|can clear away more area to put up more rides. Continue to expand your park  |
|to as large as you want but you shouldn't have to much difficulty reaching   |
|the 1000 guest mark before year 4.                                           |
|                                                                             |

|Max out your loan and max your research funding for coasters, thrill rides   |
|and gentle rides. You don't get the shuttle loop here so you need to go with |
|other rides, I like to start by deleting all 3 of the rides in the park and  |
|start from scratch. This level is fairly easy like the rest so far, when new |
|coasters, thrill rides and gentle rides become available place down them down|
|and don't forget about your stalls and staff either. Soon enough you will get|
|the 750 guests you need and then you just have to wait it out until you get  |
|the win.                                                                     |

|OBJECTIVE: To have at least 750 guests in your park at the end of October,   |
|Year 3, with a park rating of at least 600.                                  |

|Start by maxing out your loan, as you can see the park is a bit narrow in    |
|the first part of the park but thickens up at the end. Use the narrow part of|
|the park to build your thrill rides and gentle rides, it takes a while to get|
|the shuttle loop from research so stick with thrill rides and gentle rides   |
|for a bit just to get your park going. After you have it up and running good |
|then just focus your research on roller coasters until you get your shuttle  |
|loop, now lay down a bunch of them at the back of the park to really start   |
|getting some money going. Once your shuttle loops are up and running you     |
|should have no problem finishing this level off, you will have plenty of     |
|money and just lay down rides as they come available to you.                 |
|                                                                             |

|A small theme park with a few rides and room for expansion - Your aim is to  |

|OBJECTIVE: To achieve a park value of at least $15,000 at the end of October,|
|Year 3.                                                                      |

|Max out your loan and start research on roller coasters only, I like to      |
|start from scratch on this level. Delete all the rides and shut down the park|
|to get the people to leave, after they are gone delete all the paths and     |
|clear out some area's for some shuttle loops. It takes awhile for the shuttle|
|loop to come from the research but you have plenty of time on this level,    |
|also you are going to have to research shops & stalls for a drink stall.     |
|                                                                             |
|One problem with this level is that it rains a lot which affects people going|
|on your roller coasters, this isn't a huge problem but can be annoying at    |
|times. When the shuttle loop comes from research lay down about 10 of them   |
|and open up your park to really get some money coming in, after you have 10  |
|of them up focus your research on thrill rides and gentle rides and spread   |
|them around the park. Putting down other coasters and water rides isn't a bad|
|idea either, keep checking the park value through the finance tab at the top.|
|When it starts getting close to october year 3 start putting down some more  |
|rides to increase the park value and come out with an easy win.              |
|                                                                             |

|As usual max out your loan and maximize your research for roller coasters    |
|only, next shut down the park and delete the rides and paths. Now flatten the|
|land your given all evenly since you have enough money to do it and have a   |
|lot left over. The first roller coaster you will get is the steel roller     |
|coaster which is the one we want, when you get it you can stop your research |
|or set it thrill rides. Next start up research for shops and stalls to get a |
|drink stall.                                                                 |

|Now lay down a bunch of shuttle loops around the small area, as many as you  |
|can and open up the park. When you start making good money you can buy more  |
|land beside the park, to do this click on the park information tab and then  |
|on the right hand side of the window is a flag button that allows you to buy |
|land at a hefty price. The pieces of land with white flags on it is the land |
|that is for sale, as you can see it is a few pieces of land over from your   |
|park so it doesn't connect. The button under the buy land is to buy the      |
|rights to build over land, this will allow you to build a path over to the   |
|other side of the park land you just bought. Just continue to expand the     |
|rides in your park to achieve a large park value, keep checking the park     |
|value through the finance tab. If your park rating starts dropping a lot then|
|just replace the old rides with new ones of the same type of ride to increase|
|the park value back up, do this and you will come out with a win.            |

|here causes more problems then it's worth, it will crash a lot bringing down |
|the popularity of your park. Delete the few rides and close up the park, when|
|the guests are gone delete all the paths around the park and start clearing  |

|The first roller coaster you get is the steel roller coaster which is what we|
|are looking for right now, when it comes in lay down 10 shuttle loops or so  |
|and open up your park. The shuttle loops will bring in the big bucks so you  |
|can start expanding the park further, keep your research on max but start    |
|researching thrill rides and gentle rides as well. As the rides come in lay  |
|them down around the park, advertise to bring in lots of guests and have a   |
|good staff to keep your park rating up. Wait out the 3 years and just make   |
|sure to have the requirements to win the level and your golden.              |

|Begin by maxing out your loan and maximizing your research to roller         |
|coasters, delete the mine train and close up the park for now. When the steel|
|roller coaster is available flatten up some land and lay down some shuttle   |
|loops to bring in some money, the problem with this level is that it rains a |
|whole lot which affects your profits from the shuttle loop. When the shuttle |
|loops are up begin research on shops & stalls to get a drink stall, when you |
|get some decent money going flatten some more land and put down some more    |
|shuttle loops until you are bringing in some real good money, at this time   |
|you can research thrill rides and gentle rides along with your roller        |
|coasters.                                                                    |

|As the money comes in flatten more and more land to put down more and more   |
|rides, advertising is a must here since you will be making most or about     |
|equal amounts of money from your entrance tickets. The only challenge with   |
|this level is the rain, but once you get past the initial part of making     |
|money this level becomes easy. The last piece of advice I will give is don't |
|flatten to much land at once or you will run low on money and have a very    |
|hard time making it back if you have few shuttle loops.                      |
|                                                                             |

|This is a bit of a challenging level but not to hard, you do not get a the   |
|steel roller coaster at all so that hurts a bit. Also as you can see there is|
|a crap load of trees everywhere, you don't have to start from scratch here   |
|you can continue to build around the existing rides.                         |
|                                                                             |
|Alright again max out your loan and set your research to maximum for roller  |
|coasters, thrill rides and gentle rides. Put down all the rides you have and |
|will get from research to expand your park, your gonna have to clear out a   |
|lot of trees to do this and can cost a good chunk of money to do so, what    |
|this means is you can't get to far a head of yourself, only clear out what   |
|you need to and place down the rides you want. It's gonna take a lot more    |
|rides to start bringing the money shuttle loops do so this level can be slow |
|going, when you do get your park going good and it starts getting close to   |
|the end of the level start up with the advertising to cram the park full of  |
|guests. Remember to have a good staff in place to keep the park rating up    |
|past 600, do this and you will come out with the win.                        |

|Max out your loan to start, this is another start from scratch level, at     |
|least this is how I like to do it. Delete all the rides which isn't a whole  |
|lot and close down the park, when the guests are gone delete all the paths   |
|and lay down a good number of shuttle loops, just so you know you start out  |
|with the steel roller coaster. Open the park up and begin the money rake in  |
|from the shuttle loops, maximize your research for roller coasters, thrill   |
|rides and gentle rides. Now you can just expand your park with all the rides |
|that you have and will get from research, like with the last level when the  |
|level is getting close to it's finish begin major advertising to get the     |
|guests to roll in. Also a good staff is required to have the proper park     |
|rating to win this level.                                                    |

|Start by maxing out your loan and increasing funding to max for roller       |
|coasters only, the first roller coaster will be the steel roller coaster     |
|which we like. When it comes in flatten up some land and remove the trees in |
|the surrounding area, lay down 8 to 10 shuttle loops to get the money to come|
|in nicely. This level rains frequently so get used to it, when you finally   |
|start making good money from the shuttle loops you can begin to flatten and  |
|remove more trees to place down different rides and such.                    |
|                                                                             |
|You can now begin research on thrill rides and gentle rides as well, much    |
|like before as the money comes in expand your park by putting down different |
|and more rides to get more guests to come. This isn't a very hard level so   |
|you should have no problem with it.                                          |

|This is probably the easiest level yet, start out the same as always by      |
|maxing out your loan. You start out with the steel roller coaster so you can |
|research roller coasters, thrill rides and gentle rides. As always put down  |
|about 10 shuttle loops to get mass money coming in, after that expand your   |
|park by placing down more and different rides around the park. You should    |
|know you can delete the pyramids and gain a profit by it, you have a 4 year  |
|span here so the toughest part of this level is waiting out the length of the|
|level.                                                                       |

|If you want you can buy additional land for this level and expand your park  |
|to the best it can be, as I said this is a easy level you can probably have  |
|the requirements to beat this level by the end of year one but you have to   |
|wait out the 4 years to the easy but long victory.                           |

|This level is much like karts & coasters, it has a large park but it is      |
|covered in trees. Max out your loan and research all off the different rides |
|you can since you begin with the steel roller coaster. Delete all of the     |
|rides in the park as they are old and you won't get much money out of them,  |
|close the park if you want and then begin to clear out a lot of trees and    |
|level some land to put down your shuttle loops.                              |
|                                                                             |
|After the shuttle loops are up and running you will be set for money so just |
|expand your park with more rides, as the level comes close to ending         |
|advertise like crazy to get lots of guests to come in to reach your 1,200    |
|goal. Make sure to have a crack staff to keep your park rating above 600 to  |
|also meet the level requirements.                                            |

|A bit more of a challenge is this level, max out your loan and focus your    |
|research on thrill rides and gentle rides. There is no point in trying to    |
|cram a roller coaster into this level because if you do manage to it takes up|
|a lot of space, stick with putting down thrill rides and gentle rides. You   |
|are going to have to use the bridge/tunnel footpath option to build any type |
|of path on this level since you only own the rights to build on top of land  |
|here.                                                                        |

|As I said you should only put down thrill and gentle rides down, place them  |
|around and in the existing footpaths that come with this level. Once you have|
|a good number of rides down start up the advertising to reach your 600 guest |
|mark, remember you only have 2 years on this level.                          |

|This level is a bit tricky, it is very bumpy and has quite a bit of trees    |
|around the park, also it rains quite a bit in this level so there is another |
|bad thing to add to the list. Again and as always max out your loan, you can |
|begin research on all the rides if you want because we have the steel roller |
|coaster. Delete the 2 chairlifts here and shut down the park, at the top of  |
|the ramp going up clear out a area and level it off to place down some       |
|shuttle loops.                                                               |

|Open up the park and get some money to come in, once the money starts coming |
|in begin the expensive task of flattening out some more land to place more   |
|rides down. Continue to do this while advertising to attract the people to   |
|come in, if you continue doing this then you should have no problem with     |
|beating this level by the end of year 3.                                     |

|shuttle loops, once that starts happening just do as you always do and expand|

|Rainbow Valley's local authority won't allow any landscape changes or large  |
|tree removal, but you must develop the area into a large theme park.         |

|This is by far the hardest level on this game, you can't remove any trees or |
|level off the land. The key to winning this level is the motion simulator and|
|the slide, for me these are the only rides I use on this level to beat it.   |
|They are the smallest rides and really the only rides that fit around the    |
|park on this level.                                                          |

|Max out your loan and begin research on thrill rides only, you start out with|
|the slide but it takes a while to get the motion simulator. You pretty much  |
|will be only using the bridge/tunnel footpath option for this level to create|
|the cue lines and paths leading away from the ride. Start by looking around  |
|the park and seeing where you can place a slide or motion simulator, when you|
|finally get the motion simulator start placing it and the slide around the   |
|park and using the bridge/tunnel footpath option to connect the path to the  |
|entrance. Open up your park and let the guests in to start making a bit of   |
|money to expand your motion simulators and slides, making money in this level|
|is a slow process so be patient. As you make more money continue to place    |
|more of these rides down all over the park as you need to, near the end of   |
|the level you should have enough guests in your park to win, if not start up |
|major advertising to bring in enough guests to beat this level.              |

|Thunder Rock stands in the middle of a desert and attracts many tourists -   |
|Use the available space to build rides to attract more people.               |
|                                                                             |
|OBJECTIVE: To have at least 900 guests in your park at the end of October,   |
|Year 4, with a park rating of at least 600.                                  |
|                                                                             |

|For being the last level this is a easy one, max out your loan and begin     |
|research on all the rides. Delete the chairlift as it barley makes any money,|
|now at the top of the cliff level a area and put down some shuttle loops to  |
|bring in the money. Expand around your shuttle loops with other rides, it    |
|doesn't take much to reach the 900 guest mark. You will probably reach your  |
|goal within the first year but you have to wait out the other 3 years before |
|you can win, in the mean time just pack your park full of rides and advertise|
|to bring in well over the 900 guest mark. Just keep this up until the end of |
|year 4 and you will come out with an easy win and open up the mega park map!.|
