happiness every few minutes by using the Information Screen. It will help you
make a better
SECTION 2:WINNING A GOLDEN TICKET UNDER OPTION 1-LOST KINGDOM
You probably noticed two mystery rides at the top of the "Purchase Rides"
screen. You need Gold
Tickets to win these. To get your first gold ticket, you need to have at least
visitors come to your park. How do you do this? There are several things you
need to do to
accomplish this goal. Make sure that you have set up all three shops available
at first. Try to
get the rest of the rides in. Make sure there are plenty of nice decorations
such as rocks,
fountains,and trees. Finally, make sure that the ticket price is not very
to the dot's advice on ticket prices. Don't raise them until he tells you to.
If you follow
these guidelines you should get a Gold Ticket soon enough. Use this ticket to
Mystery Ride, which turns out to be an elevated tram around your park.
SECTION 3:EXPAND YOUR PARK UNDER OPTION 1-LOST KINGDOM
Keep up the good work on your game for several more years. As you add rides, add
food shops and
staff huts along the way. By listening to your customers and following the
of the little black dot, and you should prosper. Wait until you have at least
thousand dollars, and move to start on the Halloween World. For information on
the advice below about starting on the Halloween World. If you already beat

your peoples happiness every few minutes by using the Information Screen.

SECTION 5:GOING FOR GOLD UNDER OPTION 2-HALLOWEEN WORLD

You will need Gold Tickets to get these attractions. To get a gold ticket,
you'll need lots of
happy customers coming to your park. "What's the best way to do this?" you may
ask. The best
way to bring lots of happy customers to your park is to build a park that you'd
like to go to.
Build lots of stores. Build attractions with prizes worth at least forty
dollars, an entrance
fee of less than twenty dollars, and a win percentage of at least fifty percent.
You may lose
a few bucks on the attractions, but the admission rate will steadily increase.
Another way to
get happy customers is to make sure that bathrooms are readily available through
many points in
the park. Make sure that the admission is not unreasonable. Follow these
directions and a
gold ticket should be yours in a few weeks. Use the gold ticket to buy that
which turns out to be an elevated tram-thing that goes around your park.

happy, but also
increase ticket prices. Follow the dot's advice for help on this. As you add
more rides, also

have at least
fifty-five thousand dollars saved up, go to Lost Kingdom. If you already beat
