Build your own theme park in RollerCoaster Tycoon 3

If you’ve never played RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, well, it’s a pretty unique game. Considered a “genre-defining classic,” this game is being relaunched on PC and released for the first time on Switch come September 24th. You’ll find that this version is called the “Complete Edition” and comes with both the Soaked! and Wild! expansion packs, as well as enhanced visuals and optimized controls for the two platforms.

Returning players will be able to relive the full RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 experience, and those just starting out will be able to enjoy the same thrill original gamers had some many years ago. From opening the park to controlling finances, building services, and hiring staff, every aspect of your empire available to be changed, edited, and manipulated. You’ll be able to build exciting waterparks and design spectacular roller coasters. There’s even the ability to craft beautiful animal habitats if you want your guests to be able to get in touch with nature as they browse your park.

Build without worry in sandbox mode

While you’ll be able to play the game as a normal theme park, having to manage finances, keep guests happy, and bring in money in order to build out more attraction, that’s not the only way to enjoy RollerCoaster Tycoon 3. There’s a sandbox mode that allows you to build any size park without the worry of money. You will have all the content of the normal game, including Soaked! and Wild! expansion packs, but be faced with no monetary challenges throughout the game as you enjoy building the park of your dreams.
