If you’ve spent time playing RollerCoaster Tycoon, SimCity, or any building sim, really, then you would surely know how tough it is to truly create something great. And by “great” I mean something that is impressive to the point where it stands out among the millions upon millions of not-so-unique creations from the community.
Next to managing finances, working out the game’s tedious restrictions, and balancing the requirements of the mini people scattering about, building something great can be really, really hard.
That’s why Redditor I-am-Prime spent the good part of 10 years building the ultimate RollerCoaster Tycoon theme park. To make something the gaming community can appreciate, you need to commit a lot of time to the project.
Prime has shared their intense theme park on Reddit, and the stats are truly mind blowing, but not quite as mind blowing as the sheer amount of detail they put into the creation.
In his monster of a virtual theme park are 34 roller coasters, 255 attractions and shops, and at any one time, around 8000 guests. I wonder how many of those guests either can’t find the bathroom, think the park is too dirty, or are lost (RollerCoaster Tycoon fans know what I’m talking about).
If you want a deeper look at his creation, check out this image, but it comes with a word of warning: I’m running a pretty powerful rig, and that image size melted my browser, so proceed with caution.
