The emblem of the scenario – featuring the Park Inspector himself… almost desperate from the sight of the chaos of broken stuff and weeds, with the silhouette of the neglected scenery castle and even more broken stuff in the background.


Here's an amusement park that shows what happens when good coasters go bad. Can you turn a handyman's special into a moneymaking machine? With lots of TLC and attention to detail, you've got a shot, but use your resources wisely or you'll be the only one being taken for a ride.

The Money Pit is the 17th scenario in RollerCoaster Tycoon 3.
