Casino Issue, High Wealth Tourists Issue

★★★★★ Novice

Hello, recently I encountered an issue with tourism.

 

I have a 'tourist' city, consisting of many hotels, gambling centers, attractions, and generally a medium - low wealth commercial district. I have three Sleek casinos, all filled with medium and low wealth tourists. Every few in-game weeks I will get a wave of high-wealth tourists, they'll stay in the few high-wealth hotels and then leave. No more high wealth tourists. I plopped a Elegant casino and added high wealth tourist-attracting modules. I added about six of those. No high wealth tourists. I have a good transit system with all transit options. (Ferry, airport, train, etc...)

 

What should I do?

I can't get high wealth tourists at all - but I can' play my tourist city either with the tourist/lag bug they say they are working on.

You can try build an expo center, as well as some other tourism attractions (leaning tower, etc), or opera houses. They bring some high wealth tourism from time to time. My city now have around 100 high wealth tourists on average, and I have an expo center and two tourism buildings.

I have the expo center, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the little Spanish bell tower, and the Arc de Triomphe. Still no high wealth tourists...

Also, the only ways that the high wealth tourists enter the city is from the airport and highway.

Don't forget the cruise ship option for your Ferry Terminals. These also bring in High-Wealth Tourists.

 

Personally I prefer to have an airport, cruise ship termnial, and a Airship (these also bring in your High Wealth tourists, and are great if you don't have the space for a full airport!) building in my city, preferably all near my high-wealth commercial district with a pair of ampitheaters ramping up the land value. Surrond that with Streetcar Avenues and HIGH tourist attactions. Once you're running at high enough profit margins per hour, toss in the high wealth casino in next to the district and tourist buildings. 

 

The worst part is probably fitting in and affording the fully kitted out airport, shuttle station, and the casino itself.

I think I've found the most adequate explanation for this issue on Simtropolis forum: 

 

It doesn't work because at large tourist numbers medium wealth tourists overrun way of transport that they and high wealth use. They simply push them aside.

 

In my case, I have a region with 1.3kk population, good amount of high wealth citizens, and among 8 cities I have only one with gambling specialization. This city is connected to almost all the rest, and has amost perfect transit system - 5 ferry terminal with piers for cruise ships, 2 big and 1 small bus terminals, 4 railway stations and an airport - I have 1 gambling house, 1 sci-fi casino, 2 sleek casinos and 1 elegant casino, 3 landmarks and exhibition complex, space center nearby but.... city is overflown by low and middle wealth tourists and NOTHING makes high wealth tourists to join them. All casinos do well except of course elegant, because it's made for high wealth sims...

 

I tried to turn off gambling houses - only then high wealth tourists number is growing a little bit, but it doesn't help much.

Hope this issue will be checked by devs.
