An easy trick to increase the profit of a ride by 10x or more. Useful for challenge parks.
How to Do It
This trick works best on rides that are limited by guest throughput, like this one. It's got a decent ticket price but makes very little money because the ride takes like half a month to complete. The queue line is obviously full all this time and cash isn't comming in becuase guests won't queue up for so long.
So what's the solution for this? easy! Once you realize that guests pay at the beginning of the queue path, not at the ride! That's right, the idiots pay to get in the queue, not in the ride, so as long as you can clear out the queue, the suckers will keep comming in non-stop, paying the ticket price each time they do so.
The trick is extremely easy:
- Close the ride.
- Open it up again immediately.
This will instantly clear out everyone in the queue, they walk out the exit, circle back around only to pay you again like idiots. Of course you would want to set up some ATMs for them to keep withdrawing money.
Notice how my actual profit was 15x the maximum theoretical profit attainable if the ride was open continuously and operates flawlessly.
