RCT3 campaing 17 - The Money Pit

The emblem of the scenario – featuring the Park Inspector himself… almost desperate from the sight of the chaos of broken stuff and weeds, with the silhouette of the neglected scenery castle and even more broken stuff in the background.


Here's an amusement park that shows what happens when good coasters go bad. Can you turn a handyman's special into a moneymaking machine? With lots of TLC and attention to detail, you've got a shot, but use your resources wisely or you'll be the only one being taken for a ride.

This is the second to last scenario of RollerCoaster Tycoon 3.

Despite the condition of the park, DO NOT delete all the rides. This is because all that down time has given them surprisingly high reliability. Terror Spinner and Wagon Wheel are the exceptions to this. As for the Avenger, you have two options: Complete the ride or demolish it. Either one works, but if you choose to complete the ride, replace the brakes towards the end with block brakes so you can run two trains at once. Then hire four mechanics and assign two to the adventure side of the park and two to the western side and the rides should get up and running fairly quickly. Then hire 4-6 janitors. Trust me this isn't enough janitors to clean the entire park, but you don't need to do that anyway. Instead, just spend time deleting paths, one square at a time and replacing them with a new square. You can even change the type of path if you want. This will have you set for the VIP all the way through tycoon level. After that just spend time building rides and you should be good. Also, build the second coaster on the western side of the park because if one side has more coasters than the other the side with fewer coasters tends to lose a lot of popularity.
