I remember the trick was finding all the visitors who were unhappy, picking them up, and dropping them in the lake to die. That was the best way to get your happiness rating up quickly.

Theme Park was so much better! The original. There would be sick everywhere and the cleaners would be on a fag break or stuck in a loop walking in circles!

The engineers would all sit and eat their lunch whilst the rides were burning down and people were screaming!!

I wish they would bring this game back!
