Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 Gold

by Adam W. (age 11)

Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 Gold edition will keep you busy for hours building some of the world's most awesome rollercoasters!

Goliath rollercoaster made in Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 GoldHave you ever wanted to ride a rollercoaster, but not have to leave your house? Well, I can tell you how. In the PC game Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 Gold, you can ride the rides you build! You can also make other rides, such as water slides, haunted houses, merry-go-rounds and other attractions. Only some rides you can't experiment with, but everything else is yours.

You can choose "Sandbox" mode to play with unlimited cash, and you can select "Career" mode to have cash applied. There are thrill rides, kiddie rides, gentle rides, family attractions, and mostly everyone's favorite, roller coasters. you can buy expansion packs, and get more rides to build. Station buildings are hard to build, but I will tell some tips. Making launching coasters can be tricky, but I know insiders secrets. If you're a beginner, you probably need to know how to make pathways on unstable ground. I can tell you that too.

Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 coasters

Roller Coaster Stations

Making a station is not actually hard, you just have to know how to do it. Here's what you have to do:

  • Go to the Scenery Objects tab. Click on that, then click the tab that shows a brick wall.
  • Choose what kind of walls and roofing you want (You usually want colored walls.) then make the floor.
  • To stack up the pieces, hold the shift key and click once every time to stack in till it’s the size you want. Do the same with the walls. Roofs are tricky, but what to got to is make the corners, then do the sides.
  • Afterwards, there is probably a big hole in the roof slide the cursor over to the place where you think the roof should be. If that doesn’t work, keep trying to delete the extras.
  • Finally, add the station platform. Tah Daa!!!!!

How to launch coasters with a catapult

Build catapult launch coasters like Fahrenheit with Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 Gold

It seems impossible, but I can do it. You can build rides like "Fahrenheit" at Hershey Park, PA. To build a coaster that has a catapult launch, all you have to do is this.

  1. Find a person in the park, and click on them.
  2. Rename him/her David Braben.
  3. Instead of making a regular uphill chain lift, make a chain that goes straight across the ground.
  4. Finish the coaster.
  5. Click on the ride, then a small circular menu should come up.
  6. Click on the tab that has gears on it and increase the launch speed to just where you want it. Then test your coaster and watch it fly!

Unstable pathways in Roller Coaster Tycoon 3

This is simple: start the pathway, then when you get the to the land section that you can’t build on, just put the courser on the edge of the pathway. An arrow should come up, so click on it. continue your pathway to the other side.
