Using golden tickets, users were able to buy new rides, attractions, shops and features on the game's website. Most of the staff the user can hire in Theme Park World are named after people who worked on the game.

Worlds[edit]

There are four different types of parks to unlock and build, known as Worlds. Each World has different rides, shops, and sideshows. As you unlock new areas, the game becomes progressively harder. The Worlds are:
Lost Kingdom, a jungle theme park with Aztec castles and dinosaurs. This, along with Halloween World, is the first world you begin with, but Wonderland and Space Zone can be unlocked later on with Golden Keys. This park, along with Halloween World, are the easiest.
Halloween World, a scary theme park with ghostly rides and haunted houses. This world, along with the Lost Kingdom only need one Golden Key to unlock. Both this park and Lost Kingdom are the easiest to play.
Wonder Land, the third and second hardest world. A fantasy theme park with bugs and flowers. Three Golden Keys are needed to unlock this world.
Space Zone, the fourth and last world. It is the hardest world in Sim Theme Park. A futuristic theme park with spaceships and aliens. Five Golden Keys are needed to unlock this world.
The user also has the option of changing the names of the Worlds.
Golden Keys and Golden Tickets.
The player can earn golden tickets or keys(p.c. version) for doing great things such as getting one-hundred people in the park, getting two-hundred people in the park, getting three-hundred people in the park within three months, and getting a $15000 profit in a year. Golden Tickets are used to buy special rides. Also, for every three golden tickets the player gets a golden key to open another park. One of the rides you can get with this special feature is an elevated tram above your park. The mentioned tram ride is present in all four parks as a different ride for example: the Lost Kingdom version is called "Jurassic Tours" and features a giant dinosaur flying around, the Halloween World version is called "Flightmare Tours" and depicts a giant purple blip with a clown face flying around, the Wonder Land version is called "Tweety Tours" and has a massive blue bird flying around and last, the Space Zone version is called the "Cosmic Cruiser" and has a hovercraft floating around. All four of them are based the same with way just made to match the theme they are in they all fly around the whole park until the tour is over and they also have at least three flying dinosaurs, blips, birds, or hovercrafts per ride.
Buzzy[edit]

There is an announcer by the name of Buzzy. He is a black ball, reminiscent of an ant, who helps the player with advice during gameplay.

As a 'regular editor' who found out about this through the SA forums, I'm on the side of the people who claim that it was ridiculous that it took this long to get this removed.

The film opens on New Year's Day (1 January 2004) with central business district drinking one whiskey after another. Later, he collapses in an alley and is found by a stranger to played by Nicholas Tse.
6-month's earlier on Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Establishment Day (1 July 2003) to mark celebrates its 6-year anniversary, police station show the heroics of Inspector Chan, as he disguises himself as a death of news cameraman for men in order to subdue a victim of man holding to outside the women news reporter at Central saving news cameraman for professional video camera life was officially transformated to becomes "Senior Inspector Chan Kwok Wing" (Jackie Chan) a remake of explode bomb fire.
Soon after that incident, a group of rebellious youths rob a bank. They explicitly ask a bank worker to call the police, and are confronted by the police outside the Legislative Council building. They escape from the police and subsequently divide the loot by how many police officers they killed or wounded, similar to computer games.
Inspector Chan and his squad are called to arrest the gang after their hideout is revealed. However, the hideout is rigged and the squad, except for Chan, was captured. Chan then finds his men in a large warehouse, suspended from the high ceiling by ropes. The gang challenges him to training regimes that are taught to policemen, betting lives of his men each time. Under mental pressure and the taunts of the gang, Chan loses all the bets which lead to the death of his squad. He tries to save the bodies of his comrades for burial before explosives blow up the building. Being the sole survivor of the incident, Chan takes a year long leave from the police force, drinking heavily to drown his sorrows and guilt.
In present day, the stranger brings Chan home. When Chan wakes up, the stranger identifies himself as PC 138, Frank Cheng, as his new partner. Frank tries to convince Chan to cancel his leave and take up the robbery case but Chan refuses. However, Chan comes to his senses eventually by apprehending the same two youths that robbed him. At the police station, Frank tells Chan that he is one of his squad member's younger brother, which convinces Chan to look into the case again .
Frank and Chan convinces Sam Wong, a former colleague of Chan, to reveal a clue from the night of the first robbery; a watch which he snatched from one of the robbers. Chan and Frank are tailed by the police as they go in search of the owner of the watch. Wong was also arrested by the police to assist in the investigation. Wong is shot dead by another gang member, Fire, before he manages to identify the robber (Sue). Before dying, Wong confesses to Chan that he was blackmailed by the gang into revealing their rigged hideout to Chan's team a year ago, as he took a bag of money from Sue to pay off his debts.
Chan and Frank found where Fire and Sue hang out and pursue them. To distract Chan, Fire shoots at a bus driver, killing him instantly and rendering the bus full of school kids out of control. Chan chases after the bus and manages to climb in and applied the brakes, halting it from falling into Victoria Harbour, while Frank rams a truck full of rubber ducks in front of the bus' path.
After the incident, Chan discovers that Frank is not really a policeman, and confronts him. Frank attempts to explain to Chan, but Chan refuses to believe the story. Regardless, they stay together to continue to track the gang leader, Joe. They are informed by Officer Sa Sa that the gang members all come from rich families and the gang leader is actually the son of the police chief.
Sue and Fire return to the gang's new hideout. Sue is badly wounded, after being shot by Frank earlier. Seeing her injury, Joe shoots and kills her. Joe's gang access Chan's police file on a computer, with Joe bent on taking revenge. Joe then arranges to meet Chan's girlfriend, Ho Yee, in the police station. He wraps a time bomb around her neck before leaving. When Chan learns of the bomb he desperately tries to free her. Ho Yee cuts the wires, with no effect, leading the police to believe that it is a fake. But when the two get ready to leave, a small wire attached to Ho Yee's back pulls out the secondary trigger, causing the bomb to explode. Before she can escape, it explodes and some falling pipes land on her, knocking her into a coma. Unfortunately for Chan, he is charged with assisting the impersonation of an officer (Frank) and for acting as an officer while under suspension.
After Chan and Frank are taunted by Joe's gang, Sa Sa and her father, the jailer, release both of them illegally. The two sneak out of the police station, with everyone deliberately ignoring their escape. Commander Chiu Chan even makes his handgun available to Chan and tells Chan to 'bring it back when you're done'. Sa Sa has engaged the help of teenagers to play a computer game, created by the gang and depicting the deaths of Chan's squad, and upon completing the latest level, reveals the gang's next target is the Bank of Hong Kong. The bank is located in the New Wing of the Convention and Exhibition Centre.
After robbing the bank, the gang waited for the police to come, planning to use the same method of distributing the loot. When a squad of police officers arrive, Chan stops them from rushing in and gets them the task of evacuating the building. Once the building is evacuated, the gang members' parents are sent in to retrieve their children, which surprised the gang. One of the gang members, Max, is so ashamed of himself that he attempts to run down the escalators to his parents and is shot dead by Joe.
Chan and Frank subsequently engage the three remaining gang members. Frank manages to shoot Fire in the leg with his own gun, disabling him. Chan chases another gang member, Tin Tin, into a Lego exhibition. Chan reminds Tin Tin that they had struck a draw the last time they fought and resume their duel in hand-to-hand combat, with Chan defeating Tin Tin. Joe chases Frank into the hall and shoots at him but shot Tin Tin in the crossfire. Joe chases Frank out of the room before the Special Duties Unit of the police arrive. Tin Tin attempts to shoot at Chan with Chan's back facing him. As Chan calls to the squad to bring in medical attention to Tin Tin, Tin Tin decides not to shoot Chan in repentance for his help.
Chan finds Joe on the roof of the Convention Centre. Having captured and tied up Frank, Joe threatens to throw him to his death. Joe challenges Chan to a race to assemble a semi automatic pistol, a rematch of an earlier challenge, and wagering Frank's life in the process. This time, Chan chambers the bullet first thus swiftly wins the game, much to Joe's disbelief. The police arrive on the roof, along with Joe's father, the police chief. Joe's father immediate reprimands Joe, while Chan tells Joe that he knows that Joe doesn't hate cops, he merely hates his father for berating him.
Joe finally admits defeat and unloads the single bullet in his gun and aims the empty gun at Chan. Not knowing that Joe's gun is empty, a police sniper then fires a round at him, injuring Joe in the process. Joe aims at his father, causing the sniper to fire once more, killing him despite Chan's yelling that the gun was empty. Chan rushes to rescue Frank and both of them fall off the building. They eventually land onto a fireman's inflated cushion.
In the hospital, Ho Yee has recovered and prepares to leave. She is met by several policemen and nurses who persuade her to accept Chan's marriage proposal. At first, she tries to hide her facial scars from Chan, but eventually accepts the proposal to the crowd's applause. Meanwhile, Frank is led away by Sa Sa before he got arrested. He leaves his jacket on a railing. When Chan looks at the jacket and he recalls meeting Frank before.
The film ends on with a flashback to an event from years ago: a homeless man from the mainland arrives without money with a starving son. He stole some food for his son from a 7-Eleven store. While running across the road to escape from the shopkeeper and the police, he is knocked down by a truck and killed. Chan arrives at the scene and uses his jacket to cover the body of the boy's father. Chan then buys the boy a loaf of bread.
After end credits he asks the boy for his name to which the boy replies "Frank Cheng" to hand of the Senior Inspector Chan Kwok Wing (Jackie Chan) screen fades to black & the movie ends with screen to fades at behind the scene to play's a close theme song's of the cover of "September Storm" was singer by Jackie Chan.

It is heavily implied that the Sheldon family is from the Canadian province, Ontario, albeit a post-apocalyptic version of the same. This is reinforced by the many Canadian stereotypes she exhibits - her accent, mannerisms (she frequently ends her sentences with "eh?"), fondness of maple-flavored ice cream, and possible alcoholism.

In addition to commercial uses, alphabetic dialing has occasionally influenced the choice of regional area codes in the United States. For example, when area 423 (East Tennessee) was split in 1999, the region surrounding Knoxville was assigned area code 865, chosen to represent the word "VOL"—short for "Volunteers", the nickname of athletic teams at the University of Tennessee.[15][16]

The state of Nevada has previously attempted to obtain area code 777 (lucky 7's), but was unable to secure it.[17]

sorry for the fanwiki but

quote:

The term kerbonaut seems to be an invention of KSP fans. The in-game building for hiring crew is named the Astronaut Complex after all. As the developers at Squad are the authors of the Kerbal universe, it makes sense to consider their terms official.

However, fans persist in “adding K to every word” as evidenced by mods like the Kerbonaut Creator, use in KSP fan fiction, forum posts requesting kerbonaut veteran suit colors, etc. If notoriety in another huge indie game is any barometer, there are about 12x more views of a Kerbonaut Minecraft skin than a Kerbal astronaut Minecraft skin on the same site.

In real-life, “astronaut” is not a universal term; it principally refers to NASA and sometimes European Space Agency explorers. The term “cosmonaut” (Russian: космонавт) has been used since Soviet times and could make a historical case for being the first choice. Eastern European and former Soviet bloc countries have invented terms based on the Russian, while other nations have used other terms based on ”astronaut”. In modern times, Chinese sources use either term depending on the audience they're speaking to, though ”háng tiān yuán” represents their native term for space travellers other than China's. Meanwhile, western media invented the term ”taikonaut” for China's space travellers.

If there is a universal trend, it seems that terms for "people who go to space" get tied in with national identities. However, KSC and characters like Wernher von Kerman and Gene Kerman more closely resemble the US space program of the 1960s than any other space program. In the end, it's hard to say what should be said.
