Just about the best theme park builder of all time.

If you're thinking about getting Roller Coaster Tycoon: Worlds...

Don't.

Get this,
You'll find it to be one of the best management games out there.

Also, check out Planet Coaster.

10 years ago in october a young boy recieved a gift after asking for a "roller coaster game"

It was a miracle that the Windows XP family dinosaur ran it.. but it did.


It was by pure luck that i found this amazing game that I grew up with, but the luckiest ive ever been.

I may only have 31 hours on steam, but i assure you i have atleast a thousand from the actual disk that i kept safe for so many years untill i decided it high time to go digital.


I still play this game after 10 years, and probably will another 10 years.

Excellent sim theme park game. This is the best rollercoaster construction and theme park management game I have seen. Hours of fun for those who like sim games. There is a great amount of detail to the game and many many rides and design features for your park. This game can keep your interest for a long time with the many creative possibilities. In addition you can make your own custom people and families to visit your park, and you can assume a rider perspective to experience what your park is like first hand.

I loved this game, when I was around 5 my dad and I played a ton of roller coaster tycoon 2 and it brought back great memories. The game mechanics still work wonderfully and the game itself is a blast to play.

I had this game back in 2010 on CD till I lost it :/ I will leave a list on why I recommend this game to the public even for it's age it still good in graphics and enjoyable like RC2 when I was younger.

Pros
- Construct your dream park
- Create Custom Families "Even yours if you can try"

*Has the same things from the Rest of the RC*
- Create your own rollercoaster
- Campaign
- Sandbox
- All that good stuff yo

Cons
- Would Say none

It seems like a decent game if you like the old style tycoon games. I didn't enjoy it though, the UI was excruciatingly tiny, random and difficult to use. Constantly getting frustrated with the weird controls and having to close every single window in the UI manually one for one was very irritating. There is no indication (or I didn't see any) of whether you are losing money or gaining so you would just have to wait for a real long time and see for yourself by constantly staring at your available money. The controls are unnecessarily difficult and useless. If you like old games then you'll probably like this one, the heavily outdated game controls and engine are very distasteful to me, (even though it is old and limited by the time) it felt almost lazy in developing better user friendly controls and UI. If there was a remake to fix all these problems then I'll maybe consider it...

I spent a lot of time making my own custom water/adventure themed park, with pirates, palm, trees, and a lot of bridges over large bodies of water. The main attraction was supposed to be a sweet jet ski race course that went all the way around the park. It took a long time to make. Food, drink, souvenirs, an observation tower and a few little rides for casual enjoyment. Everything you would expect at such a place.

Opening day. People begin flooding in to Adventureland Amusement. They buy the crap, they go on the bumper cars, and the trampolines, and the ferris wheel. But... but the jet ski course... remains untouched. It's open, it's perfect, nothing is wrong with the entrance. Nobody wants to go on jet skis. Nobody.

The Tycoon god becomes angered, and creates an island prison for the people that complain about being hungry and thirsty when they are standing in the food court. My profits go up still, but I lose my awards little by little, and then I lose my dignity as a park creator.

10/10 would spend hours on a park only to have it suck again!

Bought this game a while back. It wouldn't run. No patch was given to make it work. I was refused a refund.
