    The fans would have loved a junior coaster and a tracked car ride that they could make themselves. This is becoming an app game.

    I think the guest animations were improved. I would still like to see family groups and not as many people walking around the park doubled over. However, as coastercrazy19 says, I would prefer junior rides and tracked car rides (go-karts!) that we can create. The flat ride footprints are huge. Still hate the stick up the butt balloons.

    Is the animated cutscene at 0:58 in the new trailer present in the game?

    Its funny you should say that, I said to someone as soon as I saw the new Flat Rides that they look like they've been pulled from RCT Touch. They're so basic that they actually look like they belong in a mobile game. And the "new" food/drink and souvenir stands....
    And also the new Facades. They're not new at all. They've just been re-named and re-themed.

    Well I have to say I'm not very pleased with this "update" at all. More content and more things wrong. Been in the game for about an hour and found over 20 errors. 24 to be precise, yes I counted. And took screenshots and soon will be posting a rather extensive bug report. This game is getting beyond a joke. Does Nvizzio actually have a QA team that checks this stuff before it goes out?
