Roller Coaster Kingdom Slow Performance Tip

When you are playing the Facebook game Roller Coaster Kingdom, does it run slowly? There are a few good tips to use to make Roller Coaster Kingdom faster if it is running too slow.
Fix Roller Coaster Kingdom from Running Slow
1. Use a lower impact web browser, like Google Chrome. Firefox is a little better than Internet Explorer, but Chrome is the best. You will see a noticeable difference.
2. Close all other programs and browser windows.
3. Don't try to play the game when you have guests in your park. It isn't going to hurt you to send them all in at once, but if you try to play when they are running around then watch out. Make sure to get all your business done before hand, and then send them in before you quit.
Finally, we have to remember that the game is programmed to require a pretty fast computer. If you don't have the newest machine around, you can expect the game to run slowly. Hopefully in the future Zynga will try to reduce the system resources that this Facebook game takes up, but until then we are all going to have to utilize these performance tips!

did universal florida attraction have a roller coaster accident?


See: http://www.snopes.com/computer/facebook/rollercoaster.asp

Origins: In March 2012 (and again in January 2014), Facebook users begin seeing posts that typically featured a snapshot of a roller coaster accompanied by text referencing a theme park accident, such as:
  • Rollercoaster Accident in California!
  • Rollercoaster Accident in United Kingdom
  • ACCIDENT! - 89% Cant Watch It Rollercoaster Accident in Australia
  • OMG! Theme Park accident in Alton Towers United Kingdom
  • OMG! - Theme Park accident in Universal Studios Hollywood
  • HORRIFIC Roller Coaster Accident! In Universal Studios
  • HORRIFIC! - Summertime Theme Park Australia
  • MOST TERRIFYING ACCIDENT EVER! - Woman Falls 220ft Roller Coaster
These come-ons typically included titillating tag lines such as "This IS CRAZY has just been leaked!" and "Watch this horrific video now," and "Click on the Picture to watch the most terrifying video footage ever!" to entice Facebook users to click on hyperlinks in expectation of viewing video footage of the putative horrible roller coaster accident.

There was no such video to be seen, however. Users who did click through on such links were taken to a faux Facebook page which eventually led them down the trail of the usual survey scam, directing them to "like" or "share" links with their Facebook friends and complete online surveys, all with the goal of getting them to enrich scammers by disclosing sensitive personal information, spreading malware, buying products, and signing up for costly, difficult-to-cancel services.

My rollercoaster tycoon game does not work on my newer windows computer .I believe it is running windows xp. The screen is **** strangely when I run the game. The top part of the screen appears at the bottom and the bottom appears at the top with a black space in the middle. How can I fix it?


It wasn't built for later versions of Windows. You will need to download the latest patch and troubleshoot the compatibility. Here's some information from Microsoft to get your Roller Coaster Tycoon working on Windows XP:

If you're running Vista or Windows 7, just right click on the file, then click on Troubleshoot Compatibility.

hi roller coaster tycoon expansion pack not compatible with windows xp media edition. tried to use wizard in windows 98 mod. still will not allow me to play. do you possibly have a solution for me. thank-you.


Unfortunately none you will want to go through to use it. I find that if I have a pre-XP compatible game, that they often run better under Linux with wine than Windows XP or Windows 7.

That said, Wine and UBUNTU are very easy to setup, are free, and come with a wizard that will walk you gently through the entire process. You can install it to a drive and even dual boot your system. I play World of Warcraft, Neverwinter Nights, etc. the same way.
