In all three RollerCoaster Tycoon games, there are behind-the-scenes setting (handicaps) that are enabled on scenarios, making it harder for the player to complete the goal.

RollerCoaster Tycoon

There are several special settings for scenarios and while some of them are given in the description or obvious, others are hidden. There are two settings for increased difficulty, which you can find out by opening a saved game of the according park with the scenario editor of Roller Coaster Tycoon 2.

Park rating higher difficulty level

This handycap makes it harder to please your guests. You can counter it by making your park even better, so watch your guests' moods and their according thoughts. That means more shops and stalls, more bathrooms, clean paths, better and cheaper rides, ... Eventually your park will also reach a rating of 999.

Guest Generation higher difficulty level

It's hard to judge what this handycap does in detail. It seems that the guest limit is lower and enforced harder. The guest limit is an artifical number and determines by the amount of rides you have. Usually, you can attract about 50 guests with a flat ride and about 75 guests with a roller coaster, but this also depends on your park rating.

This setting can cause a park to stall for no obvious reason, this happens usually when the first batch of guests are broke and can't afford your rides and shops anymore. Not even a completely free park can keep broke guests happy and inside your park. This calls for a radical measure: close your rides and the park gates and wait until most of your guests are gone. This reset will attract new guests with full purses, who can enjoy your rides.[confirmation needed]
