Dream Builder: Amusement Park
I played Roller Coaster Tycoon with my son for years when he was younger, and was excited to see this game today. I was very disappointed but really think it was more my expectations being too high. This feels like a children's game rather than the challenging design and management experience of Roller Coaster Tycoon. The gameplay is pretty simplistic and the music really annoying. Really wish I could find the original RCT game made for Windows 7 and above.

No buy for me!
I was hoping this would be like "county fair" I really liked that one although not much of a challenge.
This one I did not care for at all. A bit too juvenile for me. I lasted 5 minutes and had to get out. Big pop ups are not to my liking. I would have liked to have seen customer milling about, maybe I missed them I don't know.
Unfortunately a no buy for me..

I didn't finish the game because it was so boring and it was not for me. Maybe kids would like it but not adults.

Really surprised by how much I disliked this game
I am a time management gaming fool. I was really excited to play this game. I found it boring, hard to see the big picture, no clear objectives against the clock. I didn't even finish the one hour trial. That speaks volumes because I almost always finish the hour. Most games leave you wanting more when the clock runs out. I turned this one off. Really disapointed.

For little kiddies only
Saw the mixed review and downloaded it anyhow, because I loved the first roller coaster tycoon and it calls itself a building game. But no building here at all, just placing buildings somewhere random. And to go with that the annoying childish music and visuals. Gave up after 10 minutes. Can somebody rebuild Roller Coaster Tycoon 1 for windows 7 please?

Very poor park manager
I think this game has a LOT of potential, unfortunately the developers didn't see the need in being able to rotate the screen so you could see all around something and you can only rotate a ride one of two ways.
Makes for a very restrictive and difficult layout. I guess you could place everything far apart so you can have space around things, but then you can't get your rides into the "overlapping zones".
I gave this game a fair chance as I really enjoyed Theme Park and the Rollercoaster Tycoons, but I never felt any joy, just frustration.

Similar to games of 10+ yrs ago
This is a cheesy version of the oldest Rollercoaster Tycoon or Theme Park games. This type of thing existed ages ago, with cheesy, 2D game play - you can't even rotate the map around to see where things are going. There's nothing more than some level of money management, that's it. Dull, boring, and old technology!
Even the 5+ yr old RCT3 is light-years ahead of this. I wouldn't even waste a free token on this game.

I love building games so I thought I would like this one, but it was the most boring game I have seen in a long time. Don't waste your time on this one.
