RollerCoaster Tycoon is a Simulation game.

As a tycoon, you're in charge of it all, from charging the right prices to your theme parks, to creating the craziest rides around.

This game is sure to please! Create over 50 roller coaster designs, including the traditional wooden roller coaster, the high-tech Steel Corkscrew, and the terrifying Reverse Freefall, all featuring accurately simulated motion dynamics. Fund the research, and you will get the greatest rides current technology is capable of building. Then, charge top prices to your visitors. RollerCoaster Tycoon gives you the ups, but also the downs: Why should people come to your park? Are the rides too expensive? Have you built enough food stalls? Do your amazing rides have a habit of breaking down too often? Climb or fall, boom or bust, you are in charge of it all, making sure the rides are safe, finding out what your guests are thinking, and giving them what they want for the right price.

Want to build an empire without all the usual bloodshed? Try RollerCoaster Tycoon, which puts you in total control of a theme park, managing every detail from ride development to rescuing lost guests.

Design your own roller coaster. Start with a tract of land, a few bucks in the bank, and the single-minded ambition of Donald Trump. Along the way you'll encounter all of the pratfalls of the typical real estate tycoon.

A simulator in the style of SimCity, this game has a simple enough concept: build a park attractive enough to draw in hoards of tourists and then separate them from their hard-earned money. This is accomplished by researching and building rides, along with amenities, gardens and decorations. Once you have your infrastructure, and the staff to maintain it, it's time to sit back and watch the funds roll in...all in hopes of building an even bigger rollercoaster somewhere else!

The big draws in a theme park, the coasters are expensive and flashy. They lure in thrill-seeking guests prepared to pay top dollar for a wild ride. RollerCoaster Tycoon even allows you to design the coasters yourself, a finicky but ultimately rewarding operation.

Despite a clunky interface and the usual simulator drawbacks-such as long waits while you acquire funds for the next ride-RollerCoaster Tycoon is an utter gem of a game. Its soundtrack, a mix of calliope music and ride machinery, is mixed with the sound of guests squealing with delight and terror as the coasters hurl them around. The sound mix is joyfully evocative, and you can almost smell the cotton candy and the popcorn.
