Fruit Farm is a rather unique park. When you first look at the park, you realize that you have some good areas to build rides but that you also need to remove a lot of scenery before you can start building. Although the park has only a $16,000 loan limit--one of the smallest in the game--you have enough roller coasters, food stalls, ride improvements, and scenery for the entire scenario available from the start. You do, however, have only a few thrill and gentle rides available from the start, so direct your research priorities to those fields.
The park has an entry fee of $5.00 that you can either eliminate or raise as you see fit. Because you have little time to spend on building custom rides and little space to build many large pre-designed rides, you should build mostly flat rides and small tracked rides such as the Wooden Crazy Rodent Roller Coaster or the Virginia Reel. You should also consider blocking or eliminating unused paths early on to keep guests from getting lost and to earn some extra money to spend, as well as adding an additional station or two to the Miniature Railroad to allow it to function as a proper transport ride.By the end of the Year 1, you should have anywhere from 600 to 900 guests in the park. You may now start to direct your research priorities to roller coasters, although you should still focus on building thrill and gentle rides given your limited building space. If you find that you are still falling short of 1,100 guests by September of Year 2, feel free to advertise.
