Forget Rollercoaster Tycoon and Planet Coaster. Theme Park, that's where it's at.

Think you can design and build the greatest amusement park in the world? You select the site, you layout the rides. In fact, you control every aspect of running a profitable amusement park; from hiring employees, to developing new rides, to maintaining an adequate supply of soft drinks. Any mistakes, and the bustling hordes of fun-seekers will let you know. Oh, and that Merry-Go-Round in flames is a clue too.
Select from dozens of rides and attractions.
Experience fireworks, weather effects, and more!
Keep your employees happy, or be forced into some real-time deal making.
Visit the Bank Manager to keep an eye on your cash flow.
Check the park status screen to see what your visitors are thinking. You'd better build a burger stand, the little peeps are getting hungry!

Part of the EA Promo Weekend.

I remember playing this game (using this app ). When did it come out?

1994.

Always preferred Theme Hospital (bloaty head!) but good memories of making all my customers sick outside the rollercoaster and hiring an army of janitors to clean it up!

The only title I can recall playing on the Jaguar was The Bruce Lee Story. Admittedly I was probably too busy making my own music videos with Kriss Kross and C&C on the Mega CD

​Seems like yesterday, this was sold out everywhere but had a ridiculous price tag. Atari killer in my opinion, though it was supposed to be their comeback console to defeat all others, how that worked out we all know. PlayStation user all the way for 20 years rolling.

Always wanted that game for my Jaguar. Still have my Jaguar, but still haven't got AvP!
I don't think I could justify the price now.

Great game Theme Park btw, I remember paying it for days on my Amiga, sadly my pc's inbuilt graphics now won't play the game. Seems ironic.

Plenty of nostalgia here, though in fairness Theme Hospital was the better 'Theme' game (as you'd expect with it coming out later) and Rollercoaster Tycoon was a notably better theme park sim. This is plenty cheap for the nostalgia, but I'd rather actually play either of those two.

​I was one of the idiots that purchased a Jaguar. I had the Alien vs predator game, wild times.

I Thought my megadrive was retro! that's a whole other kettle of fish

Put loads of salt on those chips.

I played this last year after feeling very nostalgic, believe me it (obviously) hasn't aged well. Don't expect the feels like you did in the 90's.

what a game want this for so long now. the memories. still been no theme park game close to being this good. simple but just enough detail without going over the top like nowadays

just sold my laptop aswell as didnt use it, damn. it would have got hours of use with this.

Got this free with Kelloggs, wicked game spent hours on it until virus wiped my entire pc and lost my save so spent even more.hours on it

I had a Jaguar a ST (loved that brilliant for music with it's midi connections)
a 800XL computer and the early Atari cartridge machine.
I loved anything Atari. Sad I know.
