From the company that brought you the acclaimed Railroad Tycoon and its sequel comes a new challenge, RollerCoaster Tycoon. Spanning over twenty different scenarios, the aim of the game is to construct a roller coaster park with the best rides and entertainment possible — and to generate as much profit as you can along the way.
Send your scientists out to research dozens of roller coaster designs including old-styled rides, like wooden switchbacks, as well as newer models, such as vertical launchers. After you've picked your favorites, you'll be able to build them almost anywhere you'd like in the park, including underground or over water.
If creating your own tracks and roller coasters is too time-consuming, you can choose from a wide variety of prefabricated rides. There are plenty of other entertainment rides at your disposal, like go-karts and bumper cars, a Ferris wheel, and even a haunted house.
By using creative designs and park layouts, you'll attract more visitors to your resort, so you'll make more money and send your park value skyrocketing. Graphically, all the rides are detailed with colorful sprites set in a isometric layout in order to capture the best view of your park. Ride operations, as well as the food and bathroom booths and individual park patrons, are all interactive — you can even charge your customers for photographs taken on the rides! ~ Nick Smith, All Game Guide
