To the already robust and incredibly detailed theme park sim. And to celebrate the release, Planet Coaster is currently 55% off at Steam. The Vintage Pack introduces a number of new rides, including high-speed wooden coasters, plus attractions like barbershop quartets and trapeze artists.

The old-timey charm is definitely here.


New Coasters
  • Zephyrus. A classic example of the world’s first high-speed wooden coasters that can be traced back to the 1920s. Beautifully aged with a tarnished old-fashioned charm.
  • Aces Sky. Another historic type of wooden coaster, with wooden tracks replaced by a large wooden pipe.

New Rides
  • Round the World. Combining the gentle motion of a Ferris wheel with the insanity of spinning, inverted gondolas. Despite their apparent danger, similar rides have stood the test of time and still operate today.
  • Loop Da Loop. Buckle up and prepare to loop head over heels in this twin cabin inverting swinging ride from the 1930s.
  • Test Flight. Take off and practice your flying skills in this spinning, inverting plane ride. Each car has a set of wings which the guests control to roll the cabin of their vintage aircraft.
  • Hurricane. A real classic found in many parks and fairgrounds around the world, the Hurricane twists and turns at tremendous speed.
  • Centrum. Feel the excitement of spinning at high speed at a thrilling 50 degrees in this classic centrifuge ride that’s been a favourite for generations of fairground and carnival fans.

New Park and Scenery Items
  • Iconic Vending Machines. Have guests entertain themselves with the classic fortune-telling Zoltan machine, or try out the Gumball and Popcorn machines synonymous with old-school town fairs.
  • Vintage Scenery. Decorate parks with distinctive vintage items including Victorian pillars, lightbox lettering and animal statues.
  • New Entertainment. For the ultimate in classic seaside and town fair entertainment, players can add a stylish barbershop quartet or trapeze artists to wow guests.

The update also includes new music and sound effects to match the vintage look. For those of us who grew up in cities where theme parks and rides were limited to the nearest Luna Park or annual show - a lot of what's on offer here will be familiar.
