I need help coding this choice!

So I’m trying to make the players choose between locations to go to. I’m getting this error message and I’m confused as to why, because I’ve done everything right. Any tips?

do you mind coping and pasting your choices so i can run it on my end to help

Hmm… the place where I quench my thirst. Where would that be?
choice
“The waterfall” {
TREVOR (talk_pointup_happy)
Of course, the waterfall!
@TREVOR exits left
@transition fade out black
INT. BLACK - NIGHT
} “The beach” {
TREVOR (talk_think_neutral)
I’ll try the beach.
@TREVOR exits left
@transition fade out black
INT. BLACK - NIGHT
@pause for 2
EXT. ECO RESERVE - DAY
@TREVOR walks to spot 1.360 150 0 in zone 3 in 3
@pan to zone 1
@pause for a beat
@pan to zone 3

Now that I think about it, the ocean doesn’t make sense.
This is salt water, which doesn’t quench thirst.
}

try this i think it wasn’t working bc you cant end on a scene in choices on my side it worked

choice "The waterfall"{
        ZEN 1 (talk_pointup_happy)
      (Of course, the waterfall!)
@ZEN 1 exits left
@transition fade out black
INT. BLACK - NIGHT
@pause for a beat

} 

It worked, thank you so much! <3

You have “INT. BLACK - NIGHT” outside of your choice bracket for the beach, you don’t need it if you are already on INT. BLACK - NIGHT

Ex:
INT. BLACK - NIGHT
NARR
Where do you want to go?
choice “Waterfall” {
EXT. WATERFALL - DAY
ZEN 1
The Waterfall!"
} “Beach” {
EXT. BEACH - DAY
ZEN 1
The beach!
} “Eco Reserve” {
EXT. ECO RESERVE
ZEN 1
The ECO Reserve!
}

also if you don’t like the thinking bubbles just get rid of the () around the words and itll makes it normal speech bubble again if you didn’t know
