Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 Scenario Guide - Botany Breakers Tips & Walkthrough

The goal this time is to achieve $10,000 monthly income from ride tickets. Keep in mind that on-ride photos count as shop sales, so they won’t count. $10,000 may sound like a lot, but it’s really not that bad. The main thing you need to worry about is making sure you’re staying profitable; building rides is not easy on this awkwardly small and bumpy island, and you’re paying a pretty high interest of 10% on your loan.

Keep your park closed, and figure out how you want to design your park. Some people will build a path around the outside of the island, however I find it easier to just build coasters on top of the island – particularly coasters with long exit paths which can be connected to other rides and coasters.

Not pretty but it works!

Unfortunately you don’t start with a cash machine, and it’s pretty deep down in the research tree. You can do the objective without it; you’ll need about 800 people in your park with good coasters. Either set your funding to only shops and stalls right away, or get a few good rides first. The very first coaster you get are really small and compact, cheap, and they can make a lot profit, so this might be worth going for first.

Build a few small rides, an information kiosk, and choose the coaster you want to start out with. It might be a good idea to save before you build this coaster; if you choose wrong and it doesn't make you money fast enough, you could be in trouble. Dingy slides are cool but each raft only seats one person, which isn't great money. Feel free to borrow a couple thousand more dollars to pay for this first coaster, but don’t go crazy. Pay off this loan whenever you can, and then borrow more when you’re ready to buy a new coaster or something. It’ll save a good amount of money.

Final Botany Breakers Tips:

>Try to avoid drowning people. It’s bad for business.
>I underestimated this park - I'm sure I could have done it a lot faster and easier if I planned out the basic layout of my paths first.
>Coasters are still going to be the best money makers for you to complete the goal - build a lot of cheap coasters that seat a lot of people.
