This game has a ridiculous amount of pop-up ads.

I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand, if it were up to me there would be no Star Wars in my park (and the point of the game is to create your own version of a Disney park). But this does open up the opportunity for GL to put more live-action characters into the game like Mary Poppins.

I played this game for close to 2 years, don’t waste your time. Its straight pay to win. You can’t accomplish everything with each update and it stacks on top of that so if you didn’t pay for a character in the last update you can’t complete the new update.
