Spooky Pack new DLC coming soon!

Hi everyone,

With the summer months behind us, we are slowly gearing up for our Frontier Expo in October, during which we will be able to tell you more about some great new content making its way to Planet Coaster. The team has been so busy, our office has turned into a ghost town... creepy creatures are lurking in the corners, our desks are covered in cobwebs, and the lights seem to flicker every other minute... Strange, isn’t it?

It must be the side effects from our brand-new SPOOKY PACK!

That’s right: on September 25, 2017 we are releasing a spook-tacular Spooky Pack for you to get creative with. This is our newest paid content pack, specifically themed for those horror lovers and dark ride fanatics. The content pack contains two new powered tracked rides, a spooky themed wall set and static and animated attachments, special effects, shop fronts, path extras, doors and windows, fences, triggerable coaster doors, themed custom signs and facility signs, and themed hats for your Planco avatars. We’re also joined by a new entertainer, King Ghoster, who will happily haunt your parks and thrill your guests!

The Hoax is a free-spinning haunted house ride with a tight track that twists and turns through each corner, and the Huntsman is Planet Coaster’s first ever motion platform ride which rotates on an axis and fits the theme perfectly. As always, the rides are fully customisable so it can fit your park just the way you want it to.

In addition to this paid content pack, we’re also releasing a third coaster, the In-Descent, for everyone to enjoy for free! This is a rapid steel shuttle coaster not created for the faint-hearted... every Planet Coaster owner will automatically receive the In-Descent with this update on September 25 (it is *NOT* part of the Spooky content, it is a *FREE* coaster).

The Planet Coaster Spooky Pack is completely optional for you to purchase – you can get it from Steam or the Frontier Store for £7.99 ($10.99, €10.99). We will also be giving away a couple of codes on our livestreams, so be sure to tune in to those on Tuesdays at 1PM on and Wednesdays at 7PM BST on for a chance to win. Please note that you need to have the Planet Coaster base game in order to download and play this extra content.

Keep your eyes peeled on our social media channels for some exclusive screenshots over the next few days!

We hope you’re excited about this hauntingly boo-tiful new Spooky Pack...

Livestream tonight (Sept 6th) at 7PM BST on YouTube!

Greetings everyone! From our Community Manager, Bo Marit...

Hi coaster friends!

It's been really busy the past few weeks with gamescom, PAX West, and Frontier Expo preparations so I'm really sorry we haven't been able to do the weekly livestreams for a while. We miss you!

However, tonight we are back at our regular 7PM BST slot on the official Planet Coaster YouTube channel :) Ed will be hosting because unfortunately I'm sick at home with a nasty case of conflu... But Ed is awesome and Head of Animation Nick Rodgers will be on too so I'm sure you'll have a lovely time.

If you've sent me an email or workshop item to be shown off I promise I will show it on the stream really soon after I'm back :)

You can watch the live stream here:

“A game that occupies your thoughts when you're not playing it, and it's thoroughly captivating when you are.”
9/10 – Gamespot

“If you've any interest at all in theme park design, or if you thrill at the idea of being able realise your every fantastical, architectural whim (even if it's just putting down a bunch of rocks just so), then you'll likely adore Planet Coaster.”

“Planet Coaster is just about everything I could have asked for in a modern resurrection of the theme park sim genre - and then some.”
8.5/10 – IGN
