In-Game Text


"Someone probably dug the 'rare' plants at the botanical garden at his grandma's backyard, but the tourists won't notice the difference. They will just stand in awe, admiring the vibrant colors of the plants inside that large glass dome."


"Tourists will pay a lot of money to see some shrubs."


Place on high Beauty far from polluters. The Zoo is an alternative if you need Entertainment for Tropicans, but this is better for Tourist Sightseing. It is large so likely will be placed out-of-the-way; You may need a nearby Garage and a distant Garbage Dump.
