    Probably everyone here, especially roller coaster buffs, have heard of Roller Coaster Tycoon, Sim Theme Park, Thrillville, as well as other coaster and theme park related games. Being a coaster buff myself, I've pretty much owned them all. I have all three versions of Roller Coaster Tycoon, and to my surprise, both the original Roller Coaster Tycoon and Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 work on my new computer (Windows Vista)! Of all the different theme park/roller coaster games, the Roller Coaster Tycoon series is my favorite. I've also owned Hyper Rails, which I was somewhat disappointed with, along with Ultimate Ride Disney Coaster, which is ok. I think I still have Ultimate Ride Disney Coaster, but I haven't yet installed it on my new computer. There were also a couple of other coaster building programs that were available only through download, which were No Limits and Scream Machines. Both were very realistic, but coasters were a challenge to build. Sim Theme Park series was fair, but too "cartoonish". Thrillville (Playstation 2) is good, but the coasters lack detail. It is pretty much an arcade game compilation and Roller Coaster Tycoon-style theme park builder combined. Anyway, what are your favorite roller coaster/theme park related games??? Feel free to give your opinions on each one, such as what you like or dislike about the games. I hope to see some new ones or sequels to existing ones released soon, but currently none are mentioned on GameStop's website. I hope to see one (maybe another Thrillville sequel) released for Playstation 3!

          They're quite fun, especially Thrillsville.

            I've only played the original Roller Coaster Tycoon. I've had it since 1999. I used to put hours and hours on end into that game.

              I've always enjoyed "playing around" and finding ways to make the roller coasters crash by making them fly off the track or making two trains collide. On the latest version of Roller Coaster Tycoon, the trains don't "crash" when they collide, but you can still make them fly off the track by removing any section of track. Unlike the first two versions of Roller Coaster Tycoon, you can't "kill" the guests in ride crashes or drowning.

                what's the goal of the game? do you get more money in your park if your roller coaster is better?

                  The higher the excitement rating is on a roller coaster, the more people it will draw. In the first Roller Coaster Tycoon, you had the choice of charging admission to the parks, or charging for each individual ride. I've always found that charging per ride made more money than charging admission. I've built roller coasters with very high or extreme excitement ratings and charged $10.00 per ride, and the guests still rode them...at least for a while! Also, Roller Coaster Tycoon is made up of pre-made parks or "scenarios", and you have to meet the objective(s) of each scenario in order to advance in the game. For example, a typical scenario objective would be to have a certain number of guests in the park by the end of October of a given year, with a park rating of at least 600. Once you complete the objectives of a scenario, a new scenario is unlocked. The Roller Coaster Tycoon "year" runs from March 1st to October 31st.

                      Only such game I've played was "theme park" for the sega genesis. It had it's fun aspects, but turned into an exercise in futility.
