Format: Paperback
The only thing better than designing rides, coasters, and your very own park is to design your very own park BETTER! With this book, you are on your way to completing all corkscrew Follies and Original Scenarios. The book includes a basic guide to park management, tips on desiging rides, and even specific precautions for each individual scenario. And even though there are no RCT cheats, in the back of the book you'll find a page full of easter eggs, activated by the names you give your guests. I'd definetly say that if you are a RCT fan, this book is a must.

Format: Paperback
It would seem a difficult and daunting challenge to create a complete guide to RollerCoaster Tycoon that could fully assess and explain all the small yet very important details in a massive game like RCT. Of course, the folks at Prima have, yet again, met and surpassed this challenge. This guide discusses everything, and gives a massive amount of information about each topic. In addition, it exclusively (I believe) features many useful and informative lists, as well as many useful strategies for effective game play. This said, however, does not mean that it's not fun to read, for I found it incredibly enjoyable, much more so than a manual. The authors have a subtle, suppressed sense of humor that helps keep the text interesting, while explaining clearly boring topics. It reads more like a book than a many other guides do; I could hardly put it down. I believe the only drawback is the fact that it is (except for the covers) printed in black-and -white, which can make the pictures seem a little degraded. Pictures greatly help the reader's understanding of the text. For the high-res obsessed, they won't be impressive, but they serve their purpose well enough. For beginners and pros alike, this guide is a great addition to one's shelf, and you may even find yourself reading it more than once.

For those who want more technical information:

220 pages (not including the three introductory pages), 21 chapters. In addition, lists of:

1. All 40 rides with strategies and information for each.

2. Tips and strategies for building all custom non-coasters(coasters are too broad to do lists such as these)

3. All available scenery and themes, both categories, and the individual items, with prices.

4.

Format: Paperback
I recently purchased the official strategy guide for roller coaster tycoon and I really enjoyed reading the book. I've been playing the game now for over three years and the book helped me tweak my playing style just a little bit to really conquer the scenarios.
I would recommend this book to anyone. It is very informative and easy to use. It has a perfect sense of humor for the RCT fans as you read through the book.
I would encourage everyone that loves Roller Coaster Tycoon to add this book to your cart and enjoy reading about the game you have come to love!

I like Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 very much. Unfortunately, I am unable to use this CD Rom because have Windows 7, 64 bit and the disk is not compatible.
