RollerCoaster Tycoon® Classic
And Now the Game About Roller Coasters
Despite the myriads of entertainment options available for kids these days, nothing beats a thrill ride. If you couldn't go to an amusement park every day, you could build the ride of your dreams in RollerCoaster Tycoon. Before The Sims was cool, Microsoft released RollerCoaster Tycoon on PCs in 1999. Its success led directly to the first Sims game a year later, also from Microsoft.
Build your own amusement park with the biggest, tallest, and baddest roller coaster as the centerpiece. Feel free to add carousels, bumper cars, a go-kart track, haunted houses, and log flumes to attract visitors. As your park grows, you need to hire more people and enact safety measures to make sure no one gets hurt. The goal is to make a place where everyone gets to have fun, and you get to make money.
