Park Management

1. How can I improve the park rating
2. How can I quickly find out which of the park facilities are making/losing money
3. I want to increase park value but I don't have any room left to build anything. What can I do



1.  How can I improve the park rating  
Your park rating is decided in the main by your guests. Find out what they are thinking and depending upon this and the amount of money you have:
  • Build shops if they are hungry and/or thirsty
  • Build toilets if they need to "go"
  • Build information kiosks if they are lost
  • Lower ride and/or shop prices for any attractions that they won't pay for
  • Place more seats if they're tired
  • Hire extra handymen and assign them to patrol in areas of the park where there is lots of litter or the path is "disgusting"
  • Place litter bins where there is lots of litter
  • Add gardens, water features, walls, lights and other scenery.
  •  
    2.  How can I quickly find out which of the park facilities are making/losing money  
    You don't have to check every ride/shop/stall individually. One of the most useful windows in the game (which is not described well in the manuals) is the one you open by clicking on the Rides Info button at the top of the screen. From this window you can sort your rides/shops and stalls by various criteria including profit.
     
    3.  I want to increase park value but I don't have any room left to build anything. What can I do  
    Choose of your older rides and demolish it. It will be worth far less than you paid for it. Build another ride or ride in its place that cost more to build than the amount you got for selling the old one.

    Alternatively you can add more scenery and theming, but park value will not increase so rapidly.
