I focus on realism, not what the game makes a ride exciting. My recreation of Apollo's Chariot has an excitiment rating of like 6, which is definetly more in real life. Plus, I have all my parks with no peeps, so it doesn't matter anyways.

I don't know what the purpose is, if you don't have peeps.

hey on my parks I don't let peeps in until I finish my parks. Yeah realism is a big key. I get a 10 sometimes getting it with realism. Usually with scenary it boosts the ratings about by a point or two.

I make the park for my own enjoyment, not what Chris Sawyer wanted the peeps to enjoy.

I take it as a challenge to make what the peeps want. Even if what they want does not look fantastic. However if you make it please the ppeps AND make it look fantastic then you have done an awesome job!!

I checked enchanted elements. It's like at 150 I believe. It is a good park alot of work, but premier park kills it.

It depends on what kind of park you like. IF you like a theme park, like Busch Gardens, then Enchanted Elements is for you, If you like an amusment park, like Six Flags, then PAP is for you.

I've never got 11 or 12 before, though I once got 10 with almost no theming :)

One thing you could do is take a look at some old Traver and Prior+Church rides and take some ideas from there. I've noticed that the peeps tend to like twisty layouts with plenty of action. Here's one of mine:

It had long queues. :)
