I'll stick to roller coaster Tycoon. I have been playing RCT3 lately. But, still enjoy playing RCT2 more. I also found my original RCT and loopy landscapes.

I also had others that I got bored with. Sim theme park, and ultimate ride. My friend also got roller coaster creator, and that sucked. All the spinning made you want to barf, and the coasters always crashed.

These are the guys who did Hyper Rails. Maybe this has a place for arcade type folks, but I think enthusiasts will largely pass on it.

Give that to me n the iPad, and I'll pay $10 for it. I really want a decent coaster game on this thing for when I get bored

IDK, I messed around with Hyperrails and wasn't really impressed with it. If they keep having updates for this, like not having to tweak the speed all the time, this might be halfway decent. It's not a very good track editor though.

Eh, I use to play Hyper Rails and it this is not as appealing. I'll stick to NoLimits and RCT2.

Seeing games like this make me miss RCT. I might dust off the ol' RCT2 and pop it in tonight if I can find it.

After reading the original post, I went back to playing my roller coaster Tycoon3 game. But, I am more impressed with the graphics of the number of rides in the game, and how realistic everything looks. That, and the ride everything first person feature.

But, for building things, and much bigger parks, I still like Roller Coaster Tycoon2. I have one build your own six Flags Magic Mountain parks that has 42 coasters, and over 101 rides total, not including stands or shops. With over 7,000 park guests. I'm amazed that the game can handle so many kriss-kross rides, and still have decent graphics.

I also build my own parks, but find that landscaping is quite a challenge, and takes a lot of bucks to build hills, lakes, and have decent scenery. It would be nice if they had a sim-city like feature, where you could choose different landscapes to build parks on. I don't like the unlimited funds park though. takes all the fun out of it.

On a funny side of things. I call my friend Cedar fair Dave, because he has roller coaster tycoon2 and charges $7.00 for a cheeseburger, in make guest buy food in cheat mode. Or make them ride every ride in the park, where he charges $5.00 to $6.00 for every ride. Yet can't figure out why he isn't making any money. I don't have the heart to tell him that his park sucks!!

If you're doing it right, you should be getting $10 per ride for coasters when they're new in addition to $50 at the gate.

RCT2 peeps aren't cheapskates. They're more than willing to pay if you have a decent park going.

This thread has barely even begun and already it's broken down.

Definitely an Intamin.

Timber-Rider: I may be going out on a limb here, but I'm going to guess that you created one or several parks with dozens of large coasters and thrill rides, plenty of live entertainment and free concerts, dirt cheap pricing on food/games/merchandise, 50-cent lockers, free parking, no Fast Lane or preferred parking, very low gate price, air-conditioned bubble enclosure that makes the park free of tornadoes and hot weather, and location in...hmmm...Muskegon, MI? ;) + :)
