A great game with a lot of substance and menial system requirements. Chances are you'll have to run this in compatibility mode for XP or 7. It's got tons of depth and can keep a creative type busy for hours.

You can commit some pretty good murders too. If ♥♥♥♥♥ die on your ride though you gotta tear it down though.

I learned how to balance my checkbook from playing this.

e; Note that all the rides and a great deal of the scenery from this game is based on what you'd find in Canada's Wonderland, an actual real life amusement park. It's ♥♥♥♥ing sick.

Roller coasters are life. RCT makes me so very happy; this game was a childhood classic for me and I still go back to it every time. I remember the first time a roller coaster exploded in front of my eyes (Diamond Heights pre-built coaster BS), it was magical and 16 people died.

First of all the price is currently ridiculous for what you get. Only $6.49 CA DAMN! Even when it was first released it didn't cost nearly as much as one would expect after having played the game.

To play the main parks it takes approx 50 hrs (give or take), this doesn't include the other 2 WHOLE EXPANSIONS that it comes with, each of which appear to take just as long AND the other 5 additional bonus parks ontop of that (3 of which are modeled off real-world parks). I don't think anyone could ask or even think to ask for better value.

So happy I might actually die :)

The only downside is that its not usually very challenging once you get the basics down (Rainbow Valley insanity being my main exception to this). I mean, yeah, every now and then it throws you for a loop by causing a coaster (or one time a water slide WTF?) to explode 2 months before your objective is due; but after the first couple of parks you should know how to deal with inspection times, mechanic requirements, accessibility, and PR making this a rare and manageable occasion.

I remain hopeful that the expansions will add some pizazz to the game play (as I have never had the chance to play the explansions until now) but even if it does not, the game itself is just so satisfying when you achieve your goals and all your little people clap for you and release their balloons that they bought with their own little money into the air in celebration of your momentous achievement!

Important note: If you have problems loading this game, consider installing OpenRCT2. Not only can it help you run this game (and Rollercoaster Tycoon 2), it adds many features that did not exist in the original.

This game was very fun when it first came out, and it is still fun now. Before Rollercoaster Tycoon, the best (only?) theme park sim was Theme Park. That game was decent, but Rollercoaster Tycoon was a huge step forward in the genre. The game has aged very well, and still holds up today. Whether you want to build the most elaborate coasters, build the biggest parks, or just want to drown your customers or immolate them with a coaster destined to crash in a fiery explosing, grab this game if you do not already own it.

This game was my childhood. I love the game so much. As most games go, first one's best. I highly recommend, as this game is as simple and fun as anything needs to be. Time consuming and just plain relaxing. Worth getting.

Work painstakingly to craft the theme park of your dreams, meticulously managing admission rates, food prices, and even constructing custom rides in a deep, satisfying retro game experience.

Or, go to the unlimited money park, slap a DO NOT ENTER sign in front of the exit, construct your rides to be lethal, and delight in having made the worlds most brightly coloured death camp. Either way, it's a good time.
