What To Do When You’re Bankrupt

The simple answer is that if you're bankrupt, you need to make a lot of money and fast. There are several ways that you can make money quickly to get your business out of bankruptcy:

  • Demolish unnecessary buildings: When you demolish a building or facility, you will get a substantial refund. However, you will not get the full amount of money back that you spent to build it.
  • Take photos as the Ranger Team: When you're directly controlling a Ranger Team, you can take photos of dinosaurs from within their exhibits. The first time you photograph a dinosaur species or dinosaur behaviour you will be paid very well. However, if you keep repeating the same photograph the value will decrease each time you submit it.
  • Sell a dinosaur: Desperate times can lead to desperate measures and selling one of your dinosaurs is something you should consider doing if you're bankrupt. Dinosaurs sell for substantial amounts of money.
  • Restart the scenario: You can always choose to restart the scenario from your pause menu. This will wipe anything that you have done and take you back to the very beginning of that mission/scenario. This should be your final option if you cannot get yourself out of bankruptcy in any other way.

How to Avoid Going Bankrupt

The easiest way to avoid going bankrupt is to keep an eye on how much money you are spending and how much income you are generating. When you're building, you should keep an eye on how much each facility or building costs to run. You will also need to think about the monthly costs of having scientists employed at your facility. In the lower right-hand corner of your screen, you should be able to see how much money you have at your disposal. You must keep an eye on this while building as it's very easy to go bankrupt while creating new enclosures or buildings.

It's likely that you will not be able to build a complete park/facility in one go with the initial funds that you will have. To avoid going bankrupt, you should place down the necessary buildings and enclosures first. Then you can think about the "extras" later on like guest entertainment buildings and decorative items. Also, you will need to take your time to build your park/facility and wait until you are able to safely afford any construction work.
