RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, commonly abbreviated RCT3, is a strategy and simulation computer game. It is the third installment in the RollerCoaster Tycoon series, and was first released on October 26, 2004 in North America. RollerCoaster Tycoon places players in charge of managing amusement parks; rides can be built or demolished, terrain and scenery can be adjusted, and prices controlled to keep visitors or “peeps” happy.
RollerCoaster Tycoon features two methods of gameplay. In a career mode, players must complete set objectives in predesigned scenarios. RollerCoaster Tycoon also adds a new sandbox mode to the series, giving players unlimited time and money to create their own custom parks. New additions include the ability to import and export custom attractions, design custom scenarios and peeps, an in-game recorder, and a fully three dimensional world players can view from all angles.
