Complete Your Quests
Quests in CoasterVille are your friends for free coins and sometimes special theme park decoration items. Quests will also lead you through some important features of the game that should not be missed. Dedicate some of your energy points into the quests will take you a long way – especially at the beginning of the game in CoasterVille.
Understanding the Relationship Between Coins, Goods, and Thrill Points
To really excel in your proper planning out of your theme park, you will need to have a basic understanding of how the three points system works in the game. The system works in a nutshell.
These resources are needed for the following buildings
Coins = Decorations
Coins & Goods = Attractions
Coins & Thrill Points = Businesses
Popularity = Unlock more buildings
Coins = Goods
These building types will produce the following resources
Attractions => Thrill Points
Attractions & Decorations => Popularity
Businesses => Coins
Goods Emporium => Goods
Lack of Operation Buildings can hinder your theme park’s operation.
When you do not have enough operation buildings to satisfy your theme park customer’s needs. They will be stuck at certain areas instead of visiting your businesses.
With the above mentioned relationship in mind, you will be able to move fast in the game if you can optimize your energy use in each of these steps. We will discuss more how to make the most coins, thrill points, and goods in detail.
Making the Most CoasterVille Coins
You make your coins from your businesses. However, every business will generate different amount of coins. However, each “collection” will always cost one energy. Thus, you can make the most coins by collecting from your best business possible. It seems an easy conclusion but not many players can stick to this principal and make more money in the game. In addition to that simple concept, there are more items that you should consider:
Business Serving Rate and Attraction Type
When you build the same type businesses next to their matching attractions, the businesses appear to attract customer faster. This is essential especially if your play time is limited, you do not have to sit next to your computer forever. Plan your business and attractions positions and place them next to each other. The effects appear to stack, it means that the more attractions next to a specific business type, the faster people get served and the faster you can collect CoasterVille coins.
Upgrade CoasterVille Business for Better Coin Collection
When you upgrade the businesses, you will be able to collect more coins with each collection. Thus, upgrade your best business to be earn more coins per energy gain. However, you should take into consideration the items needed to upgrade business as well. Sometimes it may be worthwhile to get a new level and new businesses instead of upgrade.
Gift Shops Versus Restaurant
Based on our initial testing, CoasterVille restaurants tend to serve customers faster. Which means that you should focus on building out the restaurants first for better coin gain. Again, this is about optimizing your coin generation speed and less on the “look and feel” of your CoasterVille theme park.
Avoid Business Competition
When you build similar businesses next to each other, they will compete for businesses and serve the customers evenly. This means that you will actually lower your coin collection speed by building the same type of CoasterVille businesses. The best way to build your business (assuming you are actively waiting and collecting) – is by only building 1 restaurant right next to a bunch of collections. This way the restaurant can be ready for collection by being the only business in the area. One way to do it is when you are actively playing, store all of your businesses. And when you are AFK, put them back onto your theme park.
Earning the Most CoasterVille Thrill Points
Thrill points in Coasterville is important to help you build more advanced businesses. In this section Gamelytic will discuss the best ways to make the most Thrill points possible.
Select Your Attractions to Boost
Like businesses, when you boost CoasterVille attractions you will use 1 energy point. Thus it is important for you to select the best attraction to boost that give you the most thrill points. You do not want to waste your precious energy on an attraction that give you little thrill points. In addition, you should even consider upgrading those attractions to give you an even bigger boost.
Rollercoaster Expansion vs Attraction Upgrade
You will need to have thrill points if you want to build businesses. However, you may debate between upgrading your attractions or expand your customized rollercoaster. In short, at the beginning and mid game, your attractions and their upgrades will provide you with the best thrill points gain. However, towards end game where you will put your resources and items into building a monster customized rollercoaster. This is when your huge CoasterVille customized coaster will shine.
Power of Boosting and its downfall
Early on in the game you will learn to use boost to instantly obtain thrill points from your attractions. However, doing too many boost too fast will break your attraction. In general you should not be able to break the attraction if you boost every 5 minute or so. Avoid boosting your attractions so much that they break! Breaking them and fixing them will end up costing you more coins and goods to fix.
Getting the Most Out of CoasterVille Goods Emporium
The lack of goods will be your main limiting factor especially at the beginning of the game. If you want the most goods possible, you will have to select the 5 minute goods delivery. Although it is pretty wasteful on your energy count, however there is no way around that. If you do have the real life cash though, purchasing goods may help boosting your progress. But if you intend to play the game casually and take your time, simply go for the highest goods delivery time for the best goods to coins ratio.
CoasterVille Popularity Thoughts
Both attractions and decorations will give you points toward popularity. Our thought on the popularity is that you should only focus on that when you are short. Do all the quests first that ask you for different things. Some of the quests will reward you with decorations which equate to popularity points for free. So do not stress over your popularity points too much.
CoasterVille Expansion Strategy and Tips
Gamelytic categorizes the expansions in CoasterVille into three main areas: theme chapter, attraction limit, and land area. We will discuss the best strategy for these game progression in detail.
Theme Chapter Expansions
Themed quests are your top priority to complete. Theme businesses generate some of the top coin gains for your theme park. In addition, you will get free popularity decorations as you complete them most of the time. The themed chapters typically center around specific themes and their businesses / attractions. As you are building them out, plan an area where you can place the buildings close to one another to gain theme bonuses.
Attraction Limit Expansions
The numbers of attractions that you can house in your theme park is limited by Gate upgrade level. This means that one of your top priority in the game is to invite friends, ask them to be your gate staff, and upgrade the building. CoasterVille offers plenty of attractions and you are bound to hit your limit fairly fast in the game. So upgrade your theme park gate early to take advantage of all the awesome attraction features CoasterVille offers.
CoasterVille Land Area Expansion
Because of the attraction number limit imposed by the upgrade level of theme park gate, having the biggiest land area is not critical until the end of the game. In fact, you will find yourself consistently storing and replacing your attractions to satisfy various quest requirements. However, some of the land expansions lets you open “treasure” boxes where you will get tons of goodies. You should focus on unlocking and expanding into those areas first. Other than that, do not sweat over land expansions until you receive quests for them.
A little note on “Annual Pass”. You will receive and build an annual pass early on in the game. You will have to wait for your customer to request annual pass and give it to them. You can receive CoasterVille recommendation by doing so. So as you are playing, keep an eye out for those visitors. In addition, you should “harvest” and collect those annual passes every 8 hours as soon as they are available.
Gamelytic’s Final Thoughts
Like Zynga’s most social games, you are expected to request different items and “staff” requests from your friends. However, this game is pretty playable without having friend requests shoved in your face all the time. However, if you really want to advance in the game, getting a ton of friends who play CoasterVille is essential.
You need friends to send you various items for your building upgrades, you need them to staff your gate, and you can get bonus energy by visiting your friends. So, play CoasterVille like a social game and get busy clicking requests to and for your social game friends! Gamelytic hopes that this guide can help you master the game.
