Product Description


Building a city is a great and noble endeavor, but sometimes you just want to let loose and have some fun. Electronic Arts lets you turn in your city manager's contract and open up an amusement park in Sim Theme Park.

Using all the strategic decision-making skills you learned from the other Sim games, you'll start with a tiny, newly built park with only a few rides, games, and concession stands, and try to turn it into an thriving must-see attraction that people will come from far and wide to visit. Of course, if this is your first simulation game, you'll still do fine--it'll just take you a bit longer to get the hang of it.

There's plenty to do: train the staff, take care of prices, maintain trails, and (of course) build new rides. One of the many clever features of Sim Theme Park is the "visitor's perspective" view that allows you to ride the rides and meet the staff as if you were a guest. This can be helpful for getting insight into why people are staying away from the Regurgitator or some other new ride. Better still, you can go online and visit preconstructed theme parks--and a little bit of corporate espionage goes a long way. Once you're feeling secure and a little cocky, post your own parks online and wait for the accolades to start rolling in.--Rob Lightner

Amuse yourself with endless variations on rides, themes, shops and much more in this virtual reality theme park builder.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but no RCT January 25, 2000
Sim Theme Park is Bullfrogs answer to the crown that was stolen from them by Roller Coaster Tycoon ( Bullfrog made the FIRST theme park developer game Theme Park) and comes close but falls short in many ways. First the good stuff, STP has a fantastic graphic engine which makes the rides look fantastic. The ability to ride the rides you make and walk through your park is a major plus. But, the bad part is that the game lacks depth. Beat the first park and the game is basicly over, you get 3 new parks but there just the same rides with diffrent looks. The game requires a 3D card and some hefty space on your computer to run some what smoothly. If your looking for a great game, with more options and fun, that can run on your computer no matter what go with Roller Coaster Tycoon and youll be hooked and love every minute of it. By the way, dont pay 40 bucks for it either, id sell my copy of it, without the box, just instructions and game for 20 or less. Only get this if your a diehard theme park fan or are looking for a couple hours of graphic bliss.

2.0 out of 5 stars A disappointment. December 16, 1999
An avid fan of both SIM products and of RollerCoaster Tycoon, I found this game a disappointment.
I have a new and exceptionally fast machine (Pentium III with 128 MB RAM), and this program, even from the earliest stages of the game, crawled through each step. As importantly, there are too many things getting in the way of good, old-fashioned game play--the ever-present assistant, the kloodgy interface, the low-grade sea-sickedness one gets from the constant 3D view. Whereas I couldn't stop myself from playing RollerCoaster Tycoon for hours on end, I found it easy to uninstall this software after only four hours of game play.
Buyer beware: this game looks and feels NOTHING like RollerCoaster Tycoon. Your best bet, if you really want to try this game, is to wait until the price drops...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good and Bad but not 'The Best' November 29, 1999
SimTheme Park is beautiful to look at, and its ability to let you RIDE your rides (and walk around your park with a camcorder) is cooler than cool, but if you've played Roller Coaster Tycoon (and LOVED it, as everyone who's ever played it does), then you'll be sorely disappointed in this game. Players won't be able to rotate the play area or customize their rides to anywhere NEAR the level of detail Roller Coaster Tycoon employed, and the gameplay, while pretty, is pretty slow; even on GOOD computers with 3D cards.

3.0 out of 5 stars Almost, but not quite good enough December 2, 1999
By Rob
Sim Theme Park is a good game but the Sim games have met their match in this area with Roller Coaster Tycoon. The gameplay, graphics, and every thing else is nowhere as good as Roller Coaster Tycoon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Game of the Year! November 18, 1999
Spent many a sleepless night playing this game. They *finally* got it right! If you ever thought you could build the best roller coaster and wanted to see what it's like to actually ride it, you gotta get this game. It's so much fun to walk around in "camcorder" mode and check out the park you've built. Plus, getting on a ride and watching all these doe-eyed, chubby-cheeked kids screaming their heads off... too funny! Great, non-violent, non-stop entertainment. Make sure you've got a decent system - at least a P2-300 and a good 3D card as it does start to slow down once the park fills up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Come on, guys, this was BEFORE RTC April 20, 2005
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My Grandma bought this for me because it was on sale for only 8 dollars at the nearest Sam's club. I thought it was an AWESOME game. I actually think this is better than Roller Coaster Tycoon. Look, this was the original one, this came out BEFORE Roller Coaster Tycoon so what's with all of this complaining? RCT is a great game but it can get a little frustrating at times. This one has you're own personal guide with you that tells you what to do. There isn't just some anoying buzzing noise that goes on telling you that a customer can't find the exit or some cr*p like that. Also, I think this is VERY impressing that it was ALREADY made in 3D unlike RCT and RCT2 and it already had the option of riding you're own rides. This game is very fun and easy but it's the kind of easy/a bit challenging game. Roller Coaster tycoon is VERY frustrating and is only easy when you first start out. Come on, guys, this came out 5 years before Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 and it has all the stuff that RTC3 had already. Now, this game may be a little slow but you get use to it. Also, in the front of you're park, you get to see the customers enter through busses, airplanes, [I think] boats where as RTC you just see a boring river and a boring path with boring people walking into you're theme park. These character pretty much all look different with all different faces and stuff. Also, in this game, there isn't really a tough goal or anything you have to wait to loose on. It just tells you that you get a key to another park which is just as good as completing RTC.

You think I haven't said enough?

3.0 out of 5 stars Simple, yet complicated September 19, 2000
By yarden
SIM THEME PARK is both complex and simple at once, which can get confusing. It seems to be aimed at the grade school set, yet includes controls which end up being complex. The 3D graphics are eye-poppingly fancy, and the rides and attractions are clever, but the theme parks don't seem real like they do in Roller Coaster Tycoon. Nevertheless, this game is a fun addition to your sim library.
This game is equipped with a tutorial mode, which introduces us to an annoying little character who talks all the time, attempting to explain how each control works. After I turned the tutorial-guy off, I found it much more pleasant to play this game in which you design a theme park complete with rides, sideshows, restaurants, a staff, and other attractions.
This game features parks with Disneyland-worthy themes such as Halloween (coffin restrooms!) and Prehistory (think a kinder, gentler Jurassic Park), which have clever rides and attractions.
One really cool feature is the "ride it" option which allows you to see your ride from the perspective of someone who is on the ride. You can also see things from the perspective of security cameras. This is fun, but the novelty wears off.
I enjoyed checking out the various types of theme parks in this game, which you get to play by earning golden keys (for reaching certain goals) but I ended up going back to Roller Coaster Tycoon, which I think is a superior game. I give this game 3 stars for anyone over 12, but possibly more stars for anyone younger.
