How to Raise Park Value In Roller Coaster Tycoon Mobile

Roller Coaster Tycoon just hit mobile. Here's how you can raise your park's value as fast as possible.

The true challenge of Roller Coaster Tycoon Mobile lies in the game's basic objective: creating the most amazing theme park out there.

As with any Roller Coaster Tycoon game, the basics are simple: build an amusement park, create an awesome roller coaster and charge people $20 just to use the bathroom. In the process, you'll be tasked with finding ways to make your theme park a must-visit for touring families and people who want some exhilaration in their life.

But, how can you possibly raise your park's value with all of the other great parks already vying for your customers' collective attention? Today, we're here to guide you through just some of the basic tips on how to be successful in Roller Coaster Tycoon Mobile.

Add Different Rides

So you've built your park and given it a name, but you're going to need some rides to make people want to visit, right? You're going to want to build the "most awesomest ride ever seen by the people" and one that puts all of Disney Land's rides to shame, I get it. But you can't just think that one ride will be enough to draw people in.

That's where your other rides, like carousels and bumper cars, come in. You will have to grind a bit to unlock some of the later attractions, but it will all be worth it as you see your park's value start to skyrocket.

A couple of quick things to note and to keep in mind:

  • As you'd expect, building attractions isn't automatic. Rather than waste your tickets on them, just put your mobile device on the charger or do something else to let the time go by.
  • It won't hurt to play it safe and go with some of the cheaper rides here and there, but diversity always helps raise your park's value.
  • The bumper cars look awesome and I wish I could go for a bumper car ride. You should build bumper cars. Everyone loves bumper cars. 

See What Your Fans Want

As your fans finish their rides and hope to God they don't vomit all over their children, you'll often see little notifications above them; sometimes, it'll be something useless like them telling you to check your notifications, but other times, they'll suggest adding something new to your park.

Unlike other games, morale and park value don't necessarily seem to be tied to one another here, but that doesn't mean you can't take your patrons' opinions into consideration. Though you may not think that the opinions of virtual people matter -- and to an extent, you are right -- think about what they want and keep it in mind for when you unlock more attractions.

Who knows? Maybe what they want is exactly what your park needs...

Be Creative!

The Roller Coaster Tycoon series has always been about using your imagination, but sometimes you need to step in a specific direction here or there to really get the creative juices flowing. Oh, right, I said that already.

Seriously, though, that's what this game is about! I'm in the minority of people who try to play this realistically because Roller Coaster Tycoon Mobile is really about being creative and making the ultimate theme park with the greatest ride imaginable.

Think about what you would want in your dream theme park. Would you want an Asian restaurant right next to a pizza place, or just a place full of different rides? This is your place and the goal is not only to just to make money, but to make something that people -- both virtually and in real-life -- won't forget.

It's like when as a kid, you went to a theme park on a Sunday because your family wanted to take a break from the norm of work, school, taxes and sleeping on the couch because your phone bill had some mysterious numbers on it. That's what this game is about: taking a break from the norm to create something memorable. That will keep patrons coming back time and time again. 

That's what this game is about: taking a break from the norm to create something memorable. That will keep patrons coming back time and time again. If you raise your park value enough, you'll be able to do that -- and make all your virtual patrons happy. And that, of course, will make you happy, right?
