Transport to Nowhere

Often early in a scenario you need compact, inexpensive rides but are thwarted by the still limited selection. There is no reason why you cannot use one of the Transport rides and convert it into a compact Gentle ride. Here are examples of each of the Transport rides that have been so converted. All have a Base Excitement level of Medium. (An interesting note is that in the case of these Monorails, the last segment of curved track has a significant influence on Excitement).
