Planet Coaster will be the new destination for everyone who cares about creative gaming, coaster parks and involving management sims..

Planet Coaster will offer the best-ever ways to express your creativity, total freedom to make your park unique, sophisticated park management gameplay, expressive and charming crowds, and a new connected global village where players can share their creations with the Planet Coaster community.

Be inspired and inspire others as you create, manage and share the world’s greatest coaster parks with friends and content creators around the world.

It’s the most sophisticated park simulation in gaming history, and you’re the boss!

Each guest is an expressive individual who thinks, feels and explores your parks with their own interests, desires and cash in their pocket. They even have their own language.

The colourful characters react in an instant as you control every aspect of your parks, and together they tell you at a glance just how well you’re doing as you build your coaster empire.

Test your park management skills; use your business acumen to survive and thrive in 'Challenge mode', complete scenarios to build your reputation as you rise through the ranks in 'Career mode' or simply create beautiful parks with unlimited resources in 'Sandbox mode'.

You’re the creator in a world full of fun, excitement and celebration!

The Magnificent Rides Collection features nine brand new rides (plus one variant ride) for players to add to their parks.

Frontier is showing off how six of the rides (plus one variant) that players will operate in-game and provides insight into their creation with Lead Artist Sam Denney.

  • Mind Melt: Brutally unforgiving in the extremes, this inverted coaster will really test guests’ endurance on this recognisable classic.
  • Grand Carousel: Arguably one of the most beautiful and elegant fairground rides ever made, and a true community favourite. It’s fun for all the family and will evoke fond memories for anyone.
  • Tracker: Enhance a park’s dark ride experience with a 3D mover for up to eight guests, which spins, pitches and banks to bring the ride’s story to life.
  • Power Moves: A total powerhouse ride taking inspiration from travelling fairs. There’s nothing more extreme than Power Moves.
  • L. V.: Coaster enthusiasts have wanted to add this beautifully retro-designed coaster to Planet Coaster for a long time and it’s finally here! This superbly detailed classic features both a shuttle mode and a looping mode for maximum flexibility.
  • Hyperjump: Shoot for the stratosphere! The Hyperjump has loads of operations that allow players to vertically fling guests in many ways, from the classic stall and drop to the unforgiving multi-bounce.
  • Ascendance: A very similar experience and flexibility as the Hyperjump but with a larger capacity and going to even larger extremes.

The Planet Coaster Magnificent Rides Collection will launch on December 18, 2018 for 7.99 GBP/10.99 EUR.

Planet Coaster’s piece-by-piece construction philosophy builds on Frontier’s unrivalled expertise in the genre. It’s easy to pick-up, yet rewards you with limitless creativity and uniquely beautiful results.

Build the most amazing coasters, lay curvaceous paths, design intricate scenery and customize rides to your heart's content. Let your imagination run wild using the huge variety of themed scenery pieces, objects and blueprints on offer.

Raise mountains, form lakes, dig caverns, create dark-rides and even build islands in the sky!
