Most challenging parks in RCT2?

If you play roller coaster tycoon 2, you have probably tried to build just about every park by now. The question is, which ones do you find the most difficult.

My least favorite are the parks where you can not let the park rating drop below 700 or the park closes. I'm thinking that's the six flags over Texas and Great Adventure parks. So, I rarely play those, but, once found a glitch, and was able to re-open the parks and continue playing them. But, can't remember how I did that. I also dislike Lucky lake, no room to build anything.

One I do like is Rainbow Summit. I have 3 versions, one of which I completed, and the other two failed. But, I notice that the guests are very picky, and will not pay very much for food, and walk around complaining that they are hungry, thirsty, and need to use the restroom. But, they are not real people, so I don't know why I even bother! LOL!!

I miss the Alton Towers park, in loopy landscapes. I have it somewhere, but, I can't remember if it was a add on to the original RCT or RCT2. I also recently played Infernal Views, finally completed that one. But, it was hard.

Another thing I can't figure out is why the pre-built coasters seem like they would be very intense, but, when I build a less intense looking coaster, it has an intensity of 16. Almost like the game wants you to fail!

I didn't do it! I swear!!

I'm working on Infernal Views right now. I haven't beaten it yet, but it seems like it'll be pretty easy. There's plenty of space, and you can hit an excitement rating of 6.00 pretty easily.

Really, any park that lets you charge for ride tickets is cake, because after a couple of high-capacity coasters, money comes pouring in. Parks that charge for admission are 10x harder, IMO. You have to constantly advertise to get the same amount of cashflow you would get just charging $5 per lap on the coasters.

Bumbly Bazaar was good fun. It took forever and a whole lotta rides to get the guests needed for $1000 in food, drink, and merchandise sales, but I very much enjoyed it. Ditto Dusty Greens.

I don't like Botany Breakers or Ghost Town because it seems like there isn't nearly enough room for the rides needed to beat the scenario. Botany Breakers is just small in general, but Ghost Town is ludicrous because of the exorbitant length of the coasters and the sheer number of them.

Gravity Gardens is my biggest challenge right now. I've paid off my loan, but my goodness, I still need another dozen coasters or so. I bulldozed and rebuilt the compact ones, which proved to be a great investment as they are worth far more than their cost in Park Value.

Overall, though, I don't play the scenarios too much. I have a couple others going, but I'm more enjoying the scenario editor. I'm working on an enormous resort-style scenario with a relatively simple objective so I can focus more on building an awesome park than trying to beat a mission.

13 Boomerang, 9 SLC, and 8 B-TR clones

I have completed the Ghost Town level. It just took a lot of coaster rebuilding, but I completed it. This is actually the second time I have RCT2 installed on a computer, I also had it on my other computer with many scenorios completed. That computer got fried by a power outage, so I had to start all over again. I like the build your own as well, but would like to build a park with more hilly terrain. That's why I like Rainbow Summit.
I should also mentioned that I completed Bumbly Bazaar pretty quick. I built all my food and shop stalls first, and set the food prices high. Like $3.00 for a burger, and $2.50 for drinks, which is still a lot less than what parks charge in real life.If you tried to charge $20.00 for a sub sandwich they would probably all leave. Or, run and drown themselves in the lake! LOL!!

My park, Billywood. By far the toughest park...
