Good work, Breezer!

Here are a few general info things:

Peep Demographics---Average stats for Fear, Nausea, and Money.
Takeaway is what sort of stats your rides should have to attract peeps, and which demographics to cater to.

Peep Food and Drink Preferences
Takeaway is what types of food and drink shops work best, where to put them, and the ratios of food and drink shops.

PS: Please sticky this thread.

Great work, breezerHOG! I have stuck this thread for better visibility! :kingcoaster:
Theres a few guides under triggers and display sequencers, but I have not found a really good one specifically about fireworks just yet, I'll try to keep an eye out for a better one
