IT IS REALLY EASY!!!!! What you have to do is buy the construction rights to build across. You are not able to build paths, but you are allowed to build rides. I suggest either the Chairlift or the Monorail. Click on the Construction Rights button (right above the Buy Land button), and buy as many construction rights as you can. Then, buy some regular land to build onto in the other section. Continue from there! It's that easy. All you had to do was look at the little booklet known as the instruction manual. Simple as that.

Of course you can build a path across the street.
To do it, you click on the bottom right icon in your paths window and then click on a starting point (not a point where you need to put a path, but a point FROM WHICH you need to extend a path).
After that, you can build paths with ramps in the same fashion as you construct coaster track (1 section at a time, left/right/higher/lower/etc.)

As long as your path is two units higher than that of the street below (same as with anything you construct), your can build your path over the street.

In theory, you shoould be able to tunnel under the street as well...but I really wouldn't know. Like Cal and most other true RCT Jedi, I had no problem beating the scenario without crossing the street.

i think we all knew that, and you can build paths, just the have to be in the air, and not on the ground.

...after reading the posts I decided to play it again just for laughs. I'm a busy guy with a job, two kids, a lawn to take care of, etc. so I had to save it and finish it off last night.

Anyway, top this.....

ZERO DEBT
4 DIFFERENT TYPES OF COASTERS'
(Mini-steel, steel, Wild Mouse, Woodie)

- 3 of 4 are full-circuit

- Only one rated Medium, all others High
$23K in hand
600 guests
Mid 800 rating
Each of the original ride types still present
$13-14K park value (forget how much)

And

NO ADDITIONAL LAND PURCHASED
(nope, not a single square)

NORMAL DEVELOPMENT FUNDING...THE WHOLE GAME
(no cheating with Whoa Bellys)

If you want the park, give me your address.
But try topping me first!!!

I have a suspended coaster entirely underground!!

: I have a suspended coaster entirely

Yeah, you can put any one of the coaster types underground.

Speaking of this scenario in particular, only one of the four different coasters I built in Dinky Park is underground. Only one of them is a shuttle. None of these coasters are Medium or Low Excitement; they're all high. And I still kept my 800+ rating, still made money, still kept 600 some-odd people -- and didn't buy a SINGLE EXTRA SQUARE of land. Not across the street, not on the same side of the street, nowhere.

Now when you've finished doing that -- and remember, NO EXTRA LAND -- let's compare scenarios.

I replayed also, I finished with a company value of 22,254, no debt, 5,770 profit, rating of 863, plus 733 guests. I had one woodie, one shuttle loop, a log flume, go-karts, spaceshot, simulator, pirate ship, inverter ship, carousel, ferris wheel, helter skelter and lots of shops. Want to see a copy?

Oh, you mean like that copy of the Olympia Looping coaster I never got? Hmmm????

Besides, how'd you get a SpaceShot and a simulator on normal R&D funding? If you played with maximum funding, you cheated. I kept it at normal 'cause I felt a SpaceShot would make the scenario too easy.

But if you did maintain normal funding and didn't buy any more land - I'd like a look.

Didn't you get the coaster? I mailed it yesterday and it didn't bounce. I can send it again if you like?
