Signs and Items for Footpaths

From RollerCoaster Tycoon Wiki Wiki, the RollerCoaster Tycoon encyclopedia that anyone can edit.
(Redirected from Path Items)

Path items are accessories placed on footpaths that provide comfort to your guests and beautify your park. Each type of item has a different effect. Path items are placed at sides of a path which are not connected to other paths, nor to ride entrances/exits or shops. Connecting a path will remove the path items on that side. Path items, except for fountains, cannot be placed on 4 way intersections. All path items (besides signs and jumping fountains) can be vandalized if a guest becomes angry. All path items (except signs and jumping fountains) are free to remove and do not provide a refund.

Types of items[edit]

RCT 1 Path Lamp 1.png
Cost: $4 RCT 1 Path Lamp 2.png
Cost: $5
The two types of lamps do not serve any vital purpose in RCT1 and RCT2 because there is no night feature, and are therefore considered purely decorative. In RCT3, lamps are required to light paths during nighttime.
RCT 1 Path Benches.png
Cost: $5
Benches allow guests to rest. Guests usually sit on benches when they are low on energy, are nauseated, or are consuming food or a drink. Placing too many benches can cause guests to delay fulfilling their bodily needs (food, drink, bathroom), causing them to have unhappy thoughts and lowering the park's rating. Benches cannot be placed at sloping paths or queue lines.
RCT 1 Path Litter Bins.png
Cost: $3
Litter bins allow guests to dispose of food waste and rubbish. These alleviate the litter problems in your park. They require frequent emptying by handymen/janitors after being used by a large number of guests. These cannot be placed on queue lines.
RCT 1 Path Jumping Fountains.png
Cost: $20
Jumping fountains launch water over the path in programmed patterns[1]. They are solely decorative. If many of them are placed adjacently, the guests will think: "These jumping fountains are great." Jumping fountains cannot be vandalized.
RCT 1 Path Banner.png Cost: $25 Banner signs display custom messages, broadcasting over the path. Banner signs cannot be vandalized like other path items. Custom messages have absolutely no effect on the guests whatsoever.

Banner signs also have a "no entry" function that prevents guests from passing under it (staff members, however, are not affected by this). They are used to seal off sections of the park the player does not wish to be overcrowded (ride exits) or to prevent the guests from getting lost.
Placing a no entry sign near the park entrance will prevent guests from leaving. This will help retain guests to meet the goal, but can also dramatically reduce the park's rating.

Queue Line TV.png
Cost: $15
Queue Line TVs are introduced in RCT2. They can only be placed on Queue Line Paths.
Cost: $7

RCT2 Signs and Posts, despite being listed under Signs and Items for Footpaths, cannot be directly placed on footpaths. Their colors can be customized, the text on the signs can be changed, and some of the signs have scrolling text. These objects are purely decorative.
