Pretty fun smaller kind of game, nothing on the scale of Rollercoaster Tycoon or anything though, have an assortment of small maps, make a carnival by placing attractions such as ring tossing or duck shooting, place small rides. food and drink stores, power generators to run the carnival, benches, bins, etc.
