Plot

Your self-designed character is the manager of a line of very popular theme parks owned by your uncle, Mortimer, who is the designer of many great theme-park-related inventions. There are five parks, and each one has three sections that all tie in to the same overall theme. For example, in Thrillville Giant, the objects in the park are all very big. Sometimes, some of the rides for the park continue the same theme. During your park's rise to fame, you have to deal with many attempts to take down its popularity, mainly from Vernon Garrison, a rival character who runs another chain of amusement parks called Globo-Joy.You need to keep your customers happy so that they don't go to Globo-Joy. Throughout the game, there are lots of mini games and missions to be played, and there is a separate multiplayer mini-game section, as well as another section where coasters can be created and saved to be used in the game.

Gameplay

The game contains minigames to play along with editing rollercoasters. While the DS version contains only seven minigames, the versions for other consoles contain over 40 minigames. The rollercoaster editor is similar to that of the Roller Coaster Tycoon series, but all coasters have to start in assigned areas. If you complete assigned missions, you will receive thrill points. If enough thrill points are gained, the player can move to the next level.

Version exclusives

All minigames feature leaderboards for Xbox Live. A demo is currently available on the Xbox Live Marketplace and on the game's official PC website.

Reception

This game has received mixed reception. IGN gave it a 7.5, bashing the graphics, and saying that the minigames are hit or miss. GameInformer gave this game a 7, again bashing graphics, but saying that it is repetitive. Gamespot gave a 7.5, again for graphics, but also occasionally unresponsive controls. Gametrailers did not review this game, but the public gives it an 8.0 on the Wii, and a 9.4 on Xbox.
