We are happy to announce a new Theme Park Studio update has been released. This update brings the much anticipated wood coasters and includes:
Wood Coasters and Tiered Supports
Mountain Flyer Coaster
Mine Train Coasters
Rail Mirror Functions
Support Texture Switching
In this update, we focused on creating detailed wood coaster rails and supports, while still providing real-time easy construction. For example, as the rails are shaped, the catwalks scale, ties rotate, pivot points auto adjust, and supports auto clip, all in real-time as you build. The end result is amazing looking wood coasters built using a super easy to use real-time editor, allowing you to create the coaster of your dreams.
Amazing coaster audio was also introduced in this update. Now you can become fully immersed in the coaster experience as you hear digitally recorded lifts, hydraulics, brakes, ambient sounds, wheel roars, and more.. Of course, our Oculus Rift support takes immersion to an even further level.
We also added a new set of buttons to the Express Editor that allow you to dynamically add tiers to your support structures and change the textures.
Per customer request, we added new horizontal and vertical mirror buttons to the editor, allowing you to quickly and easily reverse the direction of any new, or pre-built, coaster segment.
Auto smoothing was added to banks for all coaster types.
Optimizations were added to further improve framerate during construction and playback.
Finally, a few new trains were introduced with this update. These include the new wood and mine train rail styles.
We look forward to the next phases and appreciate everyone working with us during early access and helping make Theme Park Studio the ultimate theme park simulator.

A new update has been uploaded and it contains many great new features.
We are pleased to announce that this new build integrates Oculus Rift support. This is a feature many of our Kickstarter backers have been looking forward to, so we set aside time during this development stage to add Oculus support and fulfill our Kickstarter commitment. We sincerely thank our backers for their continued support. To activate Oculus Rift from within Steam, simply right click on Theme Park Studio from within your game library and click 'Properties'. Next click 'Set Launch Options', type in -oculusfullscreen ( for fullscreen mode) or -oculus for windowed mode.
In addition, this build also contains the following new features:
Four new coasters (Giga, Dragster, Floorless, and Inverted)
Animated brakes transport tires, and new LIMs
Multiple trains per coaster
Dynamic track selection (change coaster track type even after you build your design)
Dynamic train length
Advanced Properties Panel
Custom Train Importing
Brake hold time
These enhancements will greatly improve on the quality and realism of your coasters.
Most of the audio has been recorded and over 200 samples created. Audio will be integrated over the next couple weeks. We will also be finishing wood coasters for the final Stage 3 release.
In case you missed it, here is the September Park of the Month by EMC2.
We look forward to continuing to work with you during Early Access and appreciate your support!
