Now thrill-ride fans can own all the fun of Infogrames, Inc's three best-selling RollerCoaster Tycoon games in one value-priced and convenient package. The RollerCoaster Tycoon Gold Edition CD-ROM that shipped to retail on May 28th contains the original RollerCoaster Tycoon CD-ROM game and its two expansion packs, Corkscrew Follies and Loopy Landscapes.

"When I designed RollerCoaster Tycoon over three years ago, I had no idea that the players' response would be so overwhelming," said Chris Sawyer, creator and developer of RollerCoaster Tycoon. "Infogrames' decision to release RollerCoaster Tycoon and its expansions in one convenient Gold Edition will give even more gamers the opportunity to experience all the great fun that is possible when all three of these products are brought together."

RollerCoaster Tycoon Gold Edition allows players to design, build and operate their own simulated theme parks with access to a complete set of design and construction tools that make even the wildest roller coaster easy to build and tune. RollerCoaster Tycoon Gold Edition offers players over 90 scenarios filled with unique challenges and includes a huge variety of rides, attractions and themes that will stretch the imagination as players create their own ultimate theme park.

Since its release in the spring of 1999, over 4 million copies of RollerCoaster Tycoon products have been sold in North America. RollerCoaster Tycoon Gold Edition is rated "E" for Everyone by the ESRB and carries an approximate retail price of $29.95.
