RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 - On this day

RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 - On this day

On this day, nineteen years ago, RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 came out. It was one of the most popular games of the tycoon genre that was popular on the PC in the late nineties and early tens. In the game, we had the task of building the craziest amusement park with various attractions and rides that would make people feel sick to their stomachs. His creativity was the limit in creating a park next to which Gardaland would look like a harmless picnic.

RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 was created in an attempt to make a sequel to Transport Tycoon, and in the end, it turned out to be more popular than anyone could have hoped. After its release, it received two expansions, Wacky Worlds and Time Twister.

The RollerCoaster Tycoon series after the deuce experienced several more sequels - two for PC and over a few for mobile devices. Today, the spirit of the deuce can be felt in the mobile port RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic, while RollerCoaster World for PC is the smartest to avoid like the plague.

It is worth mentioning that fans of the game in 2014 launched an open-source project called OpenRCT2 which fixed most bugs, brought the game to Linux and Mac, and removed many limits so that players can build even bigger and crazier parks.

If you are looking for a modern alternative to this classic, it is best to take a look at Planet Coaster, an excellent simulation of building an amusement park. Just be prepared for the relatively high hardware requirements for one such game and try to ignore the three tons of DLC packages sold separately.
