RollerCoaster Tycoon: Corkscrew Follies is an expansion pack for those seasoned tycoons sitting on a pile of money and watching their theme parks prosper. With thirty new building scenarios, it's time to get your lazy bum up and manage dying and unpopular parks, maintain high profile entertainment centers and add to your overall wealth.
Like most expansion packs, Corkscrew Follies adds a variety of enhancements/goodies to the original game, in this case RollerCoaster Tycoon. In addition to the existing coaster types, tycoons are given more types and rides from which to choose including the Side Friction Roller Coaster and Virginia Reel along with their pre-fabricated coaster designs.
Not every park consists of roller coasters; some have dinky attractions like go-kart tracks and haunted houses. Corkscrew Follies comes with a plethora of these rides including ghost trains and a brand new miniature golf course! Depending on your park's theme, players can customize these rides with different vehicles, e.g., dolphins for a lake, dinosaurs for a jungle park.
If you're not happy with the way a current design looks, modify the ride's color scheme. Whereas you were limited in the original version as to what you could paint, Corkscrew Follies allows its moguls to change each section of a specific ride right down to individual cars and seats.
Because Chris Sawyer, the game's chief designer and programmer, is a roller coaster junkie, he realized that many theme parks were broken into different sections rather than having all the rides scattered around. Players can now separate their park with banners, creating different types of "worlds" or "lands." If so inclined, players could erect a water park named Aquatic Land located near or in an ocean but totally separate from the park's other roller coasters.
In addition to new themes such as the jungle and Jurassic settings, Corkscrew Follies comes with some different kinds of scenery including canyons, oceans, flower gardens and more. Because your park is often graded on it's excitement factor, what could be better than having a coaster rocket hanging over a cliff, pulling back at just the right moment?
Sound like fun? Grab RollerCoaster Tycoon: Corkscrew Follies and build your dream parks well into the night! You must, however, have the original version of RollerCoaster Tycoon to play this expansion pack. ~ Matthew House, All Game Guide
