Fans of classic tycoon game series Rollercoaster Tycoon will be excited to know that a new iteration of the game is on the way from Red Coin Games, a UK-based developer that hopes to recapture the magic of the original Rollercoaster Tycoon series. Of course, this early in the announcement there’s nothing to show yet, but the touch screen on the Wii U GamePad should make for interesting control options.

    Very interresting, as long as i can create some unfortunate “accidents”, just like the old days 😛 Or worst like forbid the visitor to exit my park ! i was so evil…

    • Zombie Boy

      I remember covering the fries in salt to sell more drinks, and then making everyone puke on the roller coaster!

      • Nintyfan

        Lol, I never thought of that!!

      • Shaise

        Ah! So I guess all of us played Roller coaster tycoon! I always enjoyed building my own Roller coasters!

      • Ducked

        I always put no bathrooms, that way, in like a year. Everyone grabs there pants lol

    • ItzameyaToad

      I remember on Zoo Tycoon I would get people to visit my Zoo, put a gate at the entrance then delete the lions cages hahaha. People would be screaming getting eatin by lions haha

  • Nintyfan

    I want Zoo Tycoon for Wii U! I remembered releasing a bunch of tigers in my park and killed everyone. xD

    • Clel

      I remember my friend demonstrating what was so fun about the game by doing just what you said XD

    • Ducked

      I liked having the rhino knock people up in the air xD

    • Josiah Parsons

      Yes! I did that too. I wonder why all the park visitors panicked every time there was a 1-inch gap in the meerkat habitat. also, I had a moose on the loose for maybe a week. they were not happy.

  • AAAkabob

    I paper entry missed out on this series, maybe I’ll pick this up

  • I hope they still have water rides. Those were my favorite

    • Christopher Acuna

      LMAO! I would always screw up the raft ride. I would make some humungous drop and then not give enough incline coming out of the drop and the riders would fly off the water track. The hilarious part was the explosion once the raft would crash lol.

      • I loved riding the raft in first person view XD

  • RoboticLink

    I remember playing Roller Coaster Tycoon!! Good times, good times

    • Ducked

      I still play RCT3. Just last week I said to my friend how awesome it be if they made a 4th game

  • Razo_E

    Theme Park on the Saturn was the best. Thrillville wasn’t half-bad either. Hope this game is similar.

    • derek

      oh how i remember Theme Park. loved it… the touch screen controls make alot of sense for a game like this

  • JBeauregard

    Sign me up! I talk about how much fun the original game was all the time.

  • Clel

    Ashely there’s a glitch in the 3DS section.

  • Archiq09

    Tycoon games on wii u?! cool :3

  • Ryan Williamson

    it would be cool if you could visit other peoples theme parks and go to there attractions and coasters.

  • Ducked

    Oh my God this is awesome! Just imagine building roller coasters on the gamepad!

  • Ross Brocklesby

    Gamepad could be used as a customer eye view of the coasters and rides aswel as options and things etc

  • Mochlum

    I loved RCT2 so I’m excited for this. The Game-Pad would definitely give us some interesting control options. I just hope it has a good variety in rides and themes. And sharing theme parks would be PERFECT for Miiverse. Posting your park so other people could view them and even favorite or save them would be awesome.

  • starwars360

    Great. See trolls? There more on way for Wii U.

    • NkoSekirei

      let me give u a piece of advice dont feed the trolls just ignore them their nothing special just trying to get attention just let them them act like fools

    • Ben Kapferer

      I hope you’re not insinuating that calling Wii U less than a success so far is trolling.

  • Mr. Nick

    Awesome, need something like the first two Rollercoaster Tycoon games.

  • blindtiger

    … and view options. panorama-like view riding a rollercoaster? awesome

  • TrueWiiMaster

    If done well, this could be awesome.

  • Dell Goodman

    Oooo. This would work well on the Wii U with the tablet. I do miss playing the whole theme park world games for the PSX. Gonna get this title for sure.

  • Erik

    I really loved the very first Rollercoaster Tycoon! Heck i still have the original! I’m very glad that it will come to the Wii U! 😀


    They should bring a ZOO game next. Never played a Tycoon game before, only Wildlife Park. I will definitely pick this up if we have all the features as the other consoles.

  • Selena Gomez

    Can’t wait for videos of this game 😀

  • gamesplayswill

    AWESOME!! =D
    I loved Roller coaster Tycoon 3 I would never hire Janitors and add loads of thrill rides so everyone would get sick. =P

  • Final Destination 5 Dreampark Tycoon accident causes the loss of 35 lives… As long as it’s in a game I would love this.

  • Sharingan

    I still play zoo tycoon, 1 and 2 for PC and also rollercoaster tycoon 2 and 3. I’m just a sucker for sims/tycoon games. hope that they can truly capture the real management/constructing aspect of the game.

  • Sharingan

    They could use the gamepad for the first person view of the park. We could use the gyro for 360 viewing of the park. Be able to visit other people’s parks and ride their rides. Have a little bit of playable mini games like in the old “Sims Theme Park” game for the PSONE.

  • Ben Kapferer

    Didn’t these guys first announce the game as RollerCoaster Tycoon 4?

    Something seems fishy about the developer…
