Keep holding them down and you will get tons of money, but do it at the
beginning of the game because it tears down your fences-you must NOT have
the game paused while doing this.
The down side to all these cheats is that they disappear when you save a
game and then load it to play again. But you can type them in again and
they will work.

Zoo Tycoon and Dino Digs Hints:
Submitted by: Sharon Veatch
I have learned these through trial and error while playing the game for hours
on end. All this information works on freeform and scenario games. It isn’t
foolproof and sometimes you can’t get the guests happy no matter what.
Start the research as soon as you start playing the game, you need to get the
zookeeper and worker training as soon as possible. Guests do not start coming
until you buy an animal.If you have too many guests, raise your entrance
fee to over $50 and you won’t get as many new ones.
The guests don’t care whether you a beautiful zoo or not.  All they care about
is food,trash,poo,bathrooms, and ANIMALS,ANIMALS,and MORE ANIMALS. The spacing
of these things is extremely important. When you add ANY building, put a path
to it and one path square under the entrance.
I play the game on Pause while I build exhibits and decorate so that I don’t
use all my time trying get the geusts happy. I only turn it back on to see if
the animals like the exhibit or if I need to change something.Time does not
pass while you are Paused. You can check the suitibility of the exhibit by
clicking on the tree at the bottom right hand corner. The click on the exhibit
name.Then put you cursor on the end of last of the bars on the graph that should
come up. This you suitiblity rating-it should be 90 or better-.  If it isn’t, go
back and add or subtract some foliage and rocks till it is.If your animals aren’t
happy, neither are your guests!!
The resaurant that is originally in the game has a bathroom and trash cans-use it
only and you won’t have any trash.
Be sure to place it facing different directions. One restaurant will feed about 75
people. Be sure to place one within 20 squares of the entrance because they enter
and get hungry FAST.
The only other buildings that the guests care about are the petting zoo and animal
theater, and occassionally , the japanese garden. The carousel works pretty well,too.
The animal houses only please the children.
If you have a long path between restaurants ,place a large bathroom about half way,
this cuts down on complaints. Family bathrooms hold 8 people at a time and small
ones hold 2.
It does not matter which fence or which path you use for anything you build. If
you leave a row of grass between the exhibits and your path the animals will not
feel crowded by guests and the guests can still see them. Exhibits shoud be at
lest 10 fence sections in each direction-be sure to put windows so guests can
see in.
Make sure that your guests are always walking past an animal exhibit—even when
there is resaurant or animal house on one side-put an exhibit on the other side
or around the building and showing on each side of it. They are not happy if
they can’t see animals!!
Once you place a trash can or a bench you will get trash everwhere and guests
will complain about no seating and the the trash. I do not put benches in, or
trash cans.If you use any of the small buildings, the same thing happens.
Hire lots of maintenence workers and they will take care of the trash and repair
fences. One for every 50 guests works pretty good.
Assign one zoo keeper per exhibit- it will get you better care of animals.
Then put one in and don’t assign himher to an exhibit-he will roam and help
the others.
The savannah animals are least popular so I put them in the front of my zoo so
that they see them first. More popular animals in the back will draw your guests
that direction.
If you build terrain use the cliff type one,animals like it better. When you put
in foliage or rocks- put four in each square- it is denser and the animals like
it better. Use Control-G to turn the grid on and off so you can see the squares.
Most of the animals like the little rocks better. Whey you stop getting happy
faces ad get a red one- stop putting that item in. Most animals like more than
one kind of tree-experiment and you have prettier exhibits.
I hope all this helps ease some of the frustration while playing this game. You can
get more animals,objects and builing on line at the different Zoo Tycoon sites and
some great cheats and hacks,too.  If you have not upgraded you game through the
Microsoft game upgrade available on the Microsft site, you will never get animals
or guests happy. I play with all the cheats and hacks because for me the obect of
tha game is to have fun and enjoy the experiece!!!!!!

Zoo Tycoon: General Game Tips:
Submitted by:  abhishek
Here’s where you’ll find tips on the basics of exhibit creation, animal
care, guest relations, and zoo finances. Be sure to check out the Hints and
Tips list for more articles with additional in-depth information.
This article will cover some basic tips on Exhibits, Guests, Animal Care,
One of the keys to animal happiness is exhibit suitability. Click an animal
to view the Animal Information panel; the “I” tab displays four bars that
measure the animal’s happiness, hunger, health, and exhibit suitability.
Hover your mouse over any bar to see the exact number rating. Generally
speaking, if the “tree” bar (representing the exhibit suitability) is in the
green, the animal finds its home satisfactory. If the bar is yellow, click
the Zookeeper Recommendations button (the guy in the hat) and adjust the
exhibit according to the Zookeeper’s suggestions.
Bigger is better: Build your exhibits initially larger than you think you
need to. Should the animal require a mate and have babies, you will
eventually need a larger exhibit. It’s best to head this problem off from
the start.
When you build exhibits, it’s a good idea to use the zoo walls as part of
the exhibit’s borders. It not only saves on fence costs, but zoo walls never
deteriorate. No maintenance required! (On those sections, at least.)
Some types of foliage and other exhibit features only take up of a tile.
Filling each square completely with foliage often improves the suitability
for animals. Press Ctrl+G to reveal the map grid and then, using your
foliage tool, fill the square completely with the creatures’ favorite plant.
You get what you pay for! Expensive fencing is made of higher quality
materials and will deteriorate more slowly over time. Buy the most expensive
fences when you can afford it.
When you build exhibits, it’s a good idea to use the zoo walls as part of
the exhibit’s borders. It not only saves on fence costs, but zoo walls never
deteriorate. No maintenance required! (On those sections, at least.)
Another (free!) way to refresh fences is to use the gate tool. Click the
gate tool and move the gate to the section of decaying fence. You can then
move the gate back to any healthy section of fence for free.
Place entrances (gate tool) to allow your Zoo Keepers easy access.
Maintenance workers are the best value for fence repair (besides cheating!).
Be sure to hire enough of them to keep your fences sound.
Trash is the number one hit on guest happiness. Find a balance between
enough garbage cans (not too many!) and enough Maintenance Workers to empty
If your zoo is becoming over-crowded, try raising the price of admission.
This should thin out crowds, and may even earn you some extra cash.
Different guests like different animals and zoo buildings. For example,
children like the petting zoo, whereas the adults would rather visit the
aviary. Try to keep your exhibits and buildings well rounded, so there is
something for everyone.
Be sure to care for your guests with strategically placed drink stands, food
stands, benches, tables, and bathrooms. If your guests’ basic needs aren’t
met, they’ll become upset and leave!
Remember that guests come to see the animals. If you’re animals are sick or
generally unhappy , you’re guests will become upset as well.
Guests also appreciate an aesthetically pleasing environment. Place statues,
flower beds, archways, etc. to help make your guests feel good about their
surroundings. This will go a long way towards pleasing your customers.
For more information on making your guests happy, see the article on Guest
Animal Care
Herbivores are genrally easier to care for and easier to please.
Animals may be happy with several types of foliage, but will always be
happiest with their favorite, as listed in the Creature Adoption panel.
Some animals prefer a companion, but not necessarily a mate. If you don’t
want lots of babies, place two animals of the same sex in your exhibit.
Some animals will complain about feeling crowded by all the guests. Try to
keep the zoo paths one square away from the exhibits. For especially shy
animals, try building portions of the exhibit with fences guests can’t see
Some animals won’t be happy until their favorite foliage or toy has become
available. Be sure to spend some money on Research programs like Exhibit
Foliage and Animal Enrichment to make these items available.
For help with individual animal preferences please see the article on Animal
Zoo Finances
To earn more revenue for your zoo, take advantage of attractions with an
entrance fee. The Carousel, Elephant Ride, Restaurant, and Animal Theater
can earn your zoo thousands of dollars!
Adjust prices at drink and food stands as well as your zoo’s admission
price. Be careful though. while guests will tolerate some increases in
price, they get cranky if the prices are too high.
Breeding endangered species in your zoo is a great way to earn conservation
grants and other large cash donations for your zoo. Fund the Endangered
Animals Conservation program and these exotic animals will become available
for adoption.
Compost Buildings help earn revenue by selling off the “poo” produced by the
animals. Be sure to place the building far away from paths and exhibits so
it doesn’t irritate your guests.
On many maps there are items, such as trees and rocks that you can recycle
(click on the bulldozer icon) to gain extra cash. This is an underused but
highly effective means of gaining cash.
Sell off extra animals to earn money and keep exhibit population within
reasonable limits.
A Note on Freeform Games
The freeform games are the “sandboxes” of Zoo Tycoon—let your imagination
run wild with nearly unlimited funds! Build however you want. There are no
goals or restrictions other than what you set for yourself. If you want a
challenge, you can adjust the amount of starting Available Cash on the
Freeform Map selection screen.
In freeform games, you start off with a small collection of objects,
buildings, and animals to choose from. If you’re patient, more objects and
animals become available over time (about every 3 months). You can also fund
various Research and Conservation programs to earn more objects and animals,
improve conditions, and increase staff training.
