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

The game had an appearance in the cool action movie "Cradle 2 the Grave" starring Jet Li and DMX. In the movie released in 2003 by Warner Bros. a little daughter Vanessa of main protagonist played by famous rap-singer DMX was very interested in playing this game and even several seconds of her playing were watched. This action has defined the SimCoaster as an interesting game for smart girls with an art in their minds.
