Okay Santa, this is what I want for Christmas in a RCT Add-On/Update.

1. The ability to design a roller coaster without the restrictions of what type elements a certain type of track can have (i.e. steel inverted only allowing a vertical loop).

2. The ability to choose different styles of track for your coaster (B&M, Arrow/Vekoma, Intamin "styles" of track).

3. The ability to designate the angle of the track's turns, drops and even the lift hill.

4. Different sizes and types of loops (vertical loops, inclined loops, etc.).

5. Loops for wooden coaster.

6. Helixes for wooden coasters.

7. CCI style "dipping, banked turns" (ala "Ghostrider" @ KBF).

8. The ability to define "block zones" on tracks and "smart" rides.

9. No restrictions on the height of tracks (well, maybe some, like..... 500 feet for coasters and 250 feet for water rides. I think that's reasonable!).

10. The ability to choose different styles of cars for the given "type" of coaster.

11. The ability to build buildings around coasters (like Space Mtn or Disaster Transport).

12. Sit down style resturants in addition to the "consession stands".

13. Theaters for "live" entertainment shows.

14. Better AI and not such "cartoony" people. More of a reality-based game.

15. The ability to have a "guest relations" center where your sim guests can offer feedback on the park.

16. More staffing options, everything from ride ops to custodial. Staff managers, Department managers, Park executives that report to you (the President) in a "chain of command".

17. The ability to walk through the park, try the games, ride the rides and maybe even talk to the sims to get ideas directly from them.

18. More advanced methods of propulsion and anti-rollbacks. The ability to be "shot" up the lift hill. (Coming in the RCT Add-On.)

Basically, I want a more realistic theme park game!! RCT is a great start, but I'm sure there's people out there that will agree that a more reality-based theme park/roller coaster game is what we really want!!

The option to 'restore' and 'renovate' in addition to building and demolishing rides.

Wouldn't it be cool to keep an antique carousel or coaster or other classic ride (RoundUp, Skydiver) in operating condition?

And sure, with good dispatch timing, I can completely avoid crashes from Station Brake Failure...but it would make more sense to be able to close the ride, replace the braking system and have that maneuver impact the coaster's reliability.

One other thing I'd like to add!

BETTER SOUNDS!!!! As a soundman, I really loath the sounds in RCT. People, go to a theme/amusement park, LISTEN!! Do you hear the same things there as you do on RCT?!? Nope! I think they need to visit SFMM and get sounds for the LIM/Vert Thrill Ride (Superman). Get better sounds for the stand-up coasters (Riddlers Revenge, great sound to it!). I'd like to hear things better than what is on RCT. This ends my rant! :)
