Description

SimCoaster is the third and final game in the Theme Park series. It uses the same graphic engine as the previous game Theme Park World. It is a theme park management game where players build their own theme park and attract as much visitors as possible. This time there are also grandparents of the little visitors who need to be entertained.

This version focuses more on the management side of running a park. It contains various types of business related to campaigns and objectives, such as bringing in a certain number of guests to a ride. By completing these challenges, promotions can be gained. As with the previous game in the series, players can walk around in their park in a first-person mode and go on the rides.

Trivia

Just like it's prequel, this game comes with 2 different titles, one for the US (SimCoaster) and one of the rest of the world (Theme Park INC.)

I still see no decent reason why they might have done this, maybe because the 'sim-' games are more popular in the States than in the rest of the world.
