Very fun simulation builder. Simple to use. Shows its age but has no desernable flaws. Pathing can be tricky and making rides work together in close proximity is tricky. But a very enjoyable game!

RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 is a game where you are put into a position of building and managing an amusement park. The amusement park you create can have attractions ranging from concession stands to animal enclosures and pool complexes (and of course, you can build rollercoasters), but the best thing to do is trap your guests (and maybe staff) in a small enclosed area and release large carnivorous animals into the pack of people. Unfortunately, in this installment, you cannot kill your guests or staff, so while I do recommend this game, it might be more worth your while to purchase one of the previous games depending on the mechanics you are interested in.

Really buggy and a big pain in the ♥♥♥ to do simple things. Avoid this, and either get the simplistic classics, or get something more modern and polished. Just... avoid this, if you can.

The camera's a little wonky, terrain manipulation can be fidgety and there's a lot to learn, but designing and running your own amusement park is still some of the best chill-out fun gaming can provide.

Great game, but has an absolutley aweful tiling system that becomes very frustrating to use when creating scenery. trying to build on any surface that is a micropixel different in height causes your attractions to be above the ground, where pathing to them becomes difficult and sometimes impossible. the issue is that i cant seem to find a way to fix the issue using any of the tools available to change scenery height. other than that unfortunatley crucial negative, its a great game..

Hold on to your cotton candy and grab a barf bag, cuz this game stands the test of time. I bought it on the cheap thinking I'd sink 20 minutes in it for the nostalgia, but it's still a great game. Difficulty can be adjusted for an actual challenge or sandbox mode is always a blast. If you'd played this at a younger age - go for it. If your into Sim games at all - go for it. Value is probably closer to $10.00 - $15.00 versus the $20.00 it is not on sale, so wait for a sale.

I built a water slide that launched you into the air through a loop in a rollercoaster and into a pool. For ages I forgot to open it and when I did the inspecter said it wasn't safe.


I put him in a cage in the middle of my lion enclosure: where I put my victims the trouble makers.

A guest complained that the toilet was too expensive so I placed his daughter in a small inescapaple pond at the park entrance as warning to the other guests...she has been there for 6 months
