I remember playing the very first RollerCoaster Tycoon game on PC back in the day. It was back in 1999 and it was one of the first PC games I had ever played and actually played for hours and hours.  I have also played RollerCoaster 1 and 2 so when I found out about RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures I just knew I had to get my hands on a copy for PC.

I have only played a couple of hours so far but I have been enjoying RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures.  

I played a tutorial park which is great to get the hang of the game. 

The Tutorial was very helpful because there are a few changes made from the previous games.

Then once I was ready I started my own park.  As you can see from the photo below, I haven't made my park more appealing looking yet but I am waiting until my park makes more money to add trees and other things. 

There are lots of rides, food stands, bistros, entertainers and so on to pick.  

Maybe it is just my old and slow laptop  but I found that the game freezes up or lags sometimes. 

All in all, I do like this game and I will be playing it some more for sure.

This game is good for all ages. 

I do recommend RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures.
