My first roller coaster games was Disneys Roller Coaster. This was 10 years ago and it ran on my Mega Turtle-like P-Bell 20mhz.
I was just wondering what everyone elses were and what you think of the progress of them over the years.
Note: At least my capslock didn't stick this time. :)

Whoa, Disney's Rollercoaster came out 10 years ago? I thought it was like 2000. Maybe a different version?
I always thought that game was fun because it was unlike RCT and was just fun to build wacky coasters.

Kyle: yes, it was somewhere around 10 yrs ago.
It was pre-cdrom and used a 3.5 floppy. yes, that game was fun.

I was thinkin of the Disney Rollercoaster 3D game, I didn't even know they had 3D back then lol. ;)

wow, i didn't realize it was that old either, although , i've played with all versions of rct, sim park, and roller coaster factory all pretty good, sim park was kinda lame though

I still have that floppy sitting around here somewhere. It was as 3D as wire frame track can be. I seem to remember that the editor was actually pretty decent... the curve and banking options were actually more detailed than we see in RCT 2 and 3.

my first roller coaster game was at some pavillion in Epcot center that let you sort of design a roller coaster, then ride it. there were only a couple of elements, a hill, a loop, a turn, and maybe one other thing. i forget. and there were only a couple of different orders you could put them in. now, this was probably 15 years ago at least, so my memory's kind of hazy, but i seem to remember a woodchuck or a beaver or something dressed in overalls as the roller coaster foreman who would tell me when i couldn't do something (like put the loop at the top of the lift hill). anyone else remember this thing?

My first Rollercoaster game was also disney coaster. I loved the game. I even wrote to disney suggesting they update the game with different track options. I wish i still had the email because they said something along the lines of:
THere is not enough interest in this type of game to warrant futher development. Thankyou for taking the time to write.
Oops. guess they were wrong.

Oh, God. I loved Disney's Coaster. Hours and hours and hours sitting in front of my old 45MHz Packard Bell (with a 2x CD ROM Drive!) playing that and the old DOS version of Sim City 2000 (still my favorite incarnation of Sim City, by the way).
I seem to remember an add-on for Disney's Coaster being sold circa 1994 called either Airtime or Hangtime that allowed some sort of changes to the game.
Anyone ever see that add-on? If you have, do you have any idea where I can get a hold of it?
