Arrgh, just as I break one cycle of addiction, another threatens to start:-)

My baby sister has Rollercoaster Tycoon on her PC (which was my old box which I gave to her). We'd spend four or five hours at a time when I was at home designing theme parks together. It was good sibling bonding. Casino Tycoon is also a lot of fun, but Transport was the original and the best. This promises to be very good.

Favourite RollerCoaster Tycoon Sadism Moments:

[1] Picking unhappy guests up and dropping them in lakes.
[2] Making the magnetic-induction vertical coaster just *one* section too short at the top; the pause as the thing comes off the rails is just *poetic*.
[3] Creating flux curves without roofs on water slides and watching punters on dinghies fly off into space.
[4] Seeing just *how much* yak a Stand-Up Vertical Coaster can induce.

I'm really proud of my signature coaster part - the Bow Tie. It requires two half loops and a corkscrew then loops round itself twice - just like a bow tie. I'm also v fond of putting two vertical loops at 90 degrees to each other so that one goes through the middle of the other.

Steel Coasters rule. Excitement 6, Nausea 3, anyone?

I did like Transport Tycoon. Even to the point of leaving it running all night so that in the morning, the higher technologies would have arisen.

And Rollercoaster Tycoon was also great fun. Very much so. Yes indeedy. :rubs hands, still bouncing expectantly:
