* CheatersNeverProsper: Thought you could prevent yourself from losing guests by putting a "No Entry" banner in front of the entrance gate? Your park rating will go down since the guests "Can't find the exit" constantly.



* FakeDifficulty: Guests often overestimate their tolerance for nausea-inducing rides, and offering barf bags is not an option. They ''will'' throw up on your nice clean paths once they exit. You can provide benches for them to sit down and try to recover (which rarely helps much) and First Aid stations in the sequel, but still, no barf bags.

** The excitement rating of Go-Karts will go ''down'' if they go underground/indoors. So much for making a rain-proof circuit...

* ViolationOfCommonSense:
** You'd think Go-Karts built underground would be amazing, to be rainproof, but building Go-Kart tracks underground actually ''decreases'' its entertainment value.
** Thought you could prevent yourself from losing guests by putting a "No Entry" banner behind the park gate? The guests will still want to go home anyway, and you'll be dealing with a ''lot'' of "Guest can't find the park exit" messages!

** For veterans of the first game who are used to being able to freely adjust both the park entrance and ride fees for any scenario, playing ''[=RCT2=]'' itself is this due to all scenarios either being a "free park entrance/pay per ride" or "park entrance fee/free rides" park; scenarios featuring the latter place more emphasis on guest "turnover" instead of "retention" in order for the park to turn a profit, which may force the player to realise some degree of VideoGameCrueltyPotential, such as not building bathrooms.

** Station Brakes Failure can happen at any time and usually cause disasters, which will make a roller coaster's popularity and your park rating plummet.

* {{Jerkass}}: The vandals (guests with evil red faces) will intentionally damage property and whine about everything, lowering the park rating. Dealing with them involves either isolating them until they cool off, kicking them out of the park ([[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk if they're so angry, they want to go home]]), or [[KickTheSonOfABitch drown them]] (and boost the rating).

* ShoutOut: A [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pjj5_--5B-g&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL rock]] track that you can put on a ride from the first games expansions and the second game entirely sound similar to a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frCVeGweEOs track]] from ''VideoGame/{{Driver}}''. Justified, considering both games had Allister Brimble as their composer.

* VomitDiscretionShot: In the first two games, at least, guests throwing up (which happened with frustrating frequency) wasn't particularly graphic due to the simple graphics, but it gets extra credit for not even using a realistic sound effect, opting instead for the sound of ''coughing''.

* ''[=RollerCoaster=] Tycoon Touch'' (2016): A port of ''RCT World'' for mobile devices, but free-to-play like ''4 Mobile''. Was released for [=iOS=] first in 2016, then later received an Android release in 2017.

** The [[MemeticMutation infamous]] Mr. Bones' Wild Ride is an example of a player-created one.

** It's easy to just drown all your guests or make them crash brutally, but one person decided to take cruelty to a whole new level. Behold, [[http://archive.is/WrQxO Mr. Bones Wild Ride]]. Its max speed is 5 MPH downhill, and consisted of 30,000 feet of track at the start, growing larger as the riders continued. It takes in real life 70 minutes to complete, or four years in-game. Then, after everyone is thoroughly exhausted, hungry, and unhappy, the exit line leads straight back to the queue. It was so bad that the general consensus was that drowning was the kinder fate.
