Could not go to the amusement park as a kid? We turned on our Windows XP computers to play RollerCoaster Tycoon.
The game allows players to build their roller coaster rides in whatever shapes or forms and create footpaths leading to the rides. The objective of the game is to constantly make money from an infinite flow of thrill seekers in order to build more rides in your amusement park.
The funniest antic of the game is definitely seeing your customers puke after getting off a ride.
The construction and management simulation video game was first released on PC in March 1999. Three years later, MicroProse developer Chris Sawyer released the second series of the game before Frontier Developments took over and released the third game in 2004.
After a legal dispute, the rights of RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 are believed to be held by Frontier Developments, while the rights to the game franchise are owned by Atari.
Last year, RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 received a major update. Frontier Developments has since moved on to create their own roller coaster sim games, Planet Coaster and Screamride, while Atari has 10 versions of the game listed on its website — some of which are mobile and Nintendo Switch games.
You can download the games on Steam here or you can visit Frontier Developments‘ and Atari‘s websites for other versions of the game.
