From some of the reviews I've read on here, it seems that it will. I know when I played RCT1 and 2 I had to run to right click the icon and his "Run as", I can't remember what though, it's been a couple years. But, in my past experience, it's worked. I'm trying to do more research into the game, so I can buy it and run it on Windows 8. Hoped this helped.
