1001 Video GamesTheme Park appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.
Amiga versionsThere were two versions of Theme Park sold for Amiga computers. One was an AGA version of the game with 256 color graphics and was pretty much the same as the PC version. The other version was a trimmed down version for non AGA stock Amigas like the A500.
DevelopmentTheme Park was originally going to be a Disney Land game but that was scrapped when they decided they would lose too much control over the development of the game's content.
MAC versionsWhile the original Mac version of Theme Park can be started even on late Macs with OSX 10.4 "Tiger", the game has no speed restraints, so that a year in-game may pass in a few seconds.
OEM releaseTheme Park (CD version) was bundled with IBM's "Aptiva" line of multimedia computers.
RollercoasterIf the player creates a roller-coaster with an impossibly long and steep fall followed by a sharp 180 degree turn, people will fly off once in a while.
SponsorThe UK edition was sponsored by Midlands bank.
