Hello, I am struggling to be able to connect certain entrance and exit paths from rides/restaurants to the main walkway around my park, either i am missing something out or there is far too much restriction when it comes to laying a path down

The issues i am having is when trying to connect these path's to the main walkway as parallel paths, the path turned red and no mater what i do it will not allow me to lay the path down as a straight line, regardless of either choosing snap, grid or having both off.

In the previous game (rollercoaster tycoon 3) it was much more simple and easier to lay a path, it was almost free hand. Personally I would rather go back to the rollercoaster tycoon 3 path method or to at least have the option to be able to place a path the old way, as a suggestion they could put in the option and have both.
