Coasters not Unlocking
I'm about 40% through the General career mode and 30% through the Soaked career mode acheiving Tycoon status as I go and yet coasters do not seem to be unlocking. In particular I have noticed that the Junior Coaster is still locked even though I have acheived Tycoon status in the Broom Lake scenario. Am I missing something? Is there something else I need to do? Do you have to save the game once you acheive Tycoon status or something (I usually just exit out unless I really like what I have done to the park)?

Thanks!

would also like to know an answer to this, I completed the entire general career mode as tycoon on every level but didn't seem to unlock anything.

i'll take a stab at this one. I haven't played this game in awhile so maybe i am off my rocker on this one.

1. you need to research coasters to get them unlocked. meaning you need to pour money into coasters in the research area of each scenario. There is an icon or button that brings up your park's research and how much money you are dolling out to each type of ride,concession stand,fireworks,animals,water ride,coasters, etc, etc
2. The research will grant you new coasters IF they are part of that scenario.......they might not even be in that scenario as possible coasters.

Crazed, I should have used better wording. What is not being unlocked are the pre-built plans/"designs" for the coasters. I can research the various coaster types but the one design available for the Junior Coaster is still showing as locked even though the appropriate scenario has been beat. Same thing is happening for one of the designs for the Inverted Coaster which requires Gunslinger scenario to be beat.

Hopefully that makes more sense!

Have you ever used the scenario editor yet? When you make your own park up you can DISALLOW (if thats a word) certain rides and or coasters or whatever you want and the player can NOT use those things...........................maybe in the scenario you are playing the developers chose to not allow players to use those rides..........maybe, i really haven't played this for awhile and maybe i'm just spewing nonsense. Just a thought though............
