*** On the same note, the Haunted House scream sfx ended up being used for rollercoasters and water rides. It clashes with every other scream.



** Harmonic Hills gives you a tree covered area with restrictions on landscaping, scenery removal and building above tree height. Your ride selection is abysmal. Have fun fitting 1,200 guests in there.

to:

** Mystic/Mothball Mountain from ''1''. You have very little space, the terrain is horribly uneven, the loan caps out at $15k and it rains a lot. 800 guests might not seem like a lot, but when it's hard to bring in money ''and'' get your guests to go on the rides, you'll be happy to afford a Shuttle Loop.

** Octagon Park hammers in the reality that some open-ended scenarios are open-ended for a reason. Doesn't help that amassing the funds for a qualifying roller coaster is frustrating, let alone '''10'''.
** Pleasure Island, the park shortly after Octagon Park, is just as bad. It has the "Ten Roller Coasters" goal, but the Excitement Rating is 6.00 and there is no length goal. The difficulty? The island is a very long strip of land, and fitting in a lot of roller coasters at the end can be very painful.
** Sprightly Park. What's wrong with it? You're in debt! How much? ''$250,000 in debt!'' Which means you will lose over $400 every month due to the huge loan. And there's more: The rides are very old. How old? [[spoiler:Around 30 to 70 years old, which is a lot in ''RCT''.]] The only thing that will save you from the horrendous debt is the entry fee of the park, since the rides are old enough to not charge any fee at all. Good thing that this isn't in ''Loopy Landscapes'' (which ''prevents'' you from charging the park entry).

** Pleasure Island, the park shortly after Octagon Park, is just as bad. It has the "Ten Roller Coasters" goal, but the Excitement Rating is 6.00 and there is no length goal. The difficulty? The island is a very long and ''thin'' strip of land, and fitting in a lot of roller coasters at the end can be very painful.
painful. And the cherry? The park rating is harder to increase, meaning you'll ''need'' those 6.00 Excitement Ratings.
** Sprightly Park. What's wrong You start with it? You're in debt! How much? ''$250,000 in debt!'' Which ''$250,000'' of debt, which means you will lose over $400 every month due to the huge loan.

Added DiffLines:

** Southern Sands from ''Loopy Landscapes'', hoo boy. You get two really good rollercoasters, a nice transport ride, tons of flat space and a nice pathing system. The problem? You get the double whammy of having a harder time getting guests and increasing the park rating on top of the goal of 2,300 guests in 4 years, the highest outside of infinite money parks. If you're not judicious about cycling guests in and out, keeping the ride tickets cheap and getting high excitement ratings on your rides, the guest count will stop growing, advertising and awards be damned.

** While ''[=RCT2=]'''s scenarios pale in comparison to that of the original, Extreme Heights is an exception: it has a similar premise to Arid Heights, except with greater hills and guests that ''only'' want to ride intense coasters. It even begins with the coveted Twister roller coaster available at the start, and has a well-designed one, Flaming Fury, already built. The end result is a full-scale park that has nothing but the most exciting, intense rides.

** ''2'' has Dusty Greens, a monthly profit park with such a low goal ($5,000) that it's entirely possible to hit said goal before running out of land, and a lack of land is this park's only problem.

Added DiffLines:

** ''2'' introduced block brakes, allowing you to have more trains than the station can allow and prevent crashes. Problem? Making a roller coaster with block brakes become much more complicated.

** Roller Coaster Tycoon World has also become this, with critics citing its numerous bugs, lack of depth, bad performance, lacklustre art style, and general lack of polish. As of November 2016, it only holds a 31% positive rating on Steam.

* FanonDiscontinuity: As far as most fans are concerned, ''[=RCT3D=]'', ''[=RCT4=] Mobile'' and ''[=RCT=] World'' don't exist. Many find ''Parkitect'' and ''VideoGame/PlanetCoaster'' to be [[SpiritualSuccessor much more worthy successors.]] (It helps that the latter was made by the exact same development team behind [=RCT3=).
