RollerCoaster Tycoon® Classic Reviews


Crashes  Jason422  2 star

Played for about an hour. It crashed and it will not reopen.


Absolutely do not buy  iRoars  1 star

I was super excited to get this game, and when I first opened it and chose my park everything was working fine. And now every single time I open the game the first 5 seconds it freezes, then crashes. Haven’t been able to play for longer then 5 seconds. I’m deleted and re downloaded and no difference. I’m also on the iPhone X so I know it’s not on my end. I would really appreciate it if I could have my money back. The absolute worst $6 I have ever spent.

The Real Little Pat

Perfect besides one point  The Real Little Pat  5 star

This game is just as much fun as the original one I played on the PC. It is fantastic. The new outline of maps works so well. Each grouping works up from simple to hard. There are a few problems with the game. The first is the size of the buttons. On an IPhone, the buttons are too small, but you get use to it after a while. The next problem is when digging holes, there is no way to make indents or slants. I doubt I am conveying this properly, but making ponds are a nightmare and a hassle. Finally, this is a personal nitpick but I wish some parks are either free park and payed rides or free rides and payed Park. I wish a few parks were both. This game is a blast. Perfect for quick pick up and play sessions. Making rides is fun and designing the park enjoyable. I so love playing this game. Get it, figure out the tricks, and each park turns into an enjoyable challenge to stretch your mind.

Too small  Walter LP  1 star

It is way way too small on my phone. It hurts my eyes to try to use it. Unusable as is.


Finally!! A perfect mobile version  Vondrook  5 star

This is by far the best mobile port of any game I've played. It stays true to the original in every way: sounds, parks, graphics, etc. but adds touch controls perfectly. I remember the game being much harder when I was 11 so maybe I've just gotten better at the management aspect of the game, but the scenarios do seem a little easy. Still lots of fun though and totally worth the price.


Couple bugs  Stevo6958  2 star

Awesome game but you can’t build custom roller coasters and on the iPhone X the display size is off and can’t use some menus and icons ....please fix


Not bad, not as expected  go-to  3 star

People are complaining about the entrance fee vs. ride fee. Honestly the scenario only cares about attendance and park rating. So blow up the loans and win the scenario. You don’t have to pay back the loans and it doesn’t matter. I’d still prefer the original mechanics of allowing entrance fees and ride fees. Then it’s really a ‘classic’ version. Either way I’m still enjoying playing one of my favorite games of all time.


This game is the G.O.A.T.  Tootuffttom  5 star

First of all, LOVE the game. I have been playing RCT on and off for 20 years. A few things: 1. Add the view button back so that users can toggle between underground view or hide scenery, rides, etc., with ease, like the original game. 2. The sync ride to adjacent station checkbox only works if the stations go the same direction, not the opposite. Please fix it so when I build by "Jousting" coaster, it doesn't immediately stop running. 3. I love you.


FROZEN  porke227  1 star

This game does not work properly do not purchase


THIS IS WHAT I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR  vpisciotta951  5 star

Listen... any bad reviews must be coming from kids who weren’t an original RCT & RCT2 fan growing up. But for me, this is everything I could’ve asked for and more. Do you even know how long I’ve been trying to play the original RCT??? It’s been around 15 years since the last time I got to play it. Ever since then, I have been devising ways to play it that never seemed to work. When I found that it came to the iPhone, my life has finally felt like a void has been filled. My life is now complete. All the magic is still there. Whoever thought of the idea to put the original on the App Store, I wish I can hug you a million times. Whoever you are, I love you so much. Thank you for this. I can now relive my childhood.


Latest update (December 2017) caused bugs still not fixed.  MartyFriedel  1 star

In the December 2017 update, graphics on iPad Pro have been rendered unplayable. Atari have been contacted on numerous occasions and reply with a fix is being worked on. It’s now July, and their latest reply is still that there is no timeframe on the fix. Great game, purchased all in-app purchases, but now is unplayable due to the graphics issues.


Amazing!  Laddo221  5 star

This game is a perfect remake of the PC classic games, everything has translated over to iPhone perfect. The game looks slick, and the controls are easy to use


Please update for iPhone X!  Planuum  2 star

Menus get cutoff, text entry is completely missing. Safe to say, it doesn’t work well on the iPhone X. Loved the app on my iPhone 7 Plus though. Please update it!


Great value  Harry_James  5 star

Already have my moneys worth! Translates well to mobile which I wasn’t expecting, very fun!


Very fun game but has a couple problems  Sarahmaria2688  5 star

I used to love playing this game on the computer when i was a kid and now i can enjoy playing it again unfortunately it has a couple of problems for example you can’t delete custom parks that you have made so if I want to delete a custom park i made I would have to delete the app and reinstall it and restore purchases which is very annoying recently i was playing my custom park scenario and while i was building the park like making rides adding decorations etc the walls roofs bins benches and fences are gone and I’m unable to do anything to add them though I added them in my custom park can you fix this bug please? And when creating a custom park can you add a function where you press own all land and all 256x256 or you can choose any other number and the land of that amount is owned by you saving you time


So nostalgic!  aussiegirl91  5 star

100% like the old game! So many parks to play. Worth the $10!

Phillip Tran

Meh  Phillip Tran  2 star

1. Can’t delete saved parks 2. Can’t move/rotate buildings after they are built. 3. Can’t pause the game while building. You lose valuable time while designing your park, and by the time you finish it, you pass the deadline for your objective. 4. Payed $10 for this app but found out I have to pay another $10 to use the toolkit and play without restrictions.


Love it but screen optimisation for iPhone X is bad  An0nym0ussse  3 star

I love this game, it is exactly the same as the roller coaster tycoon games for PC and now I can play it anywhere. I have had no issues and the game runs very smooth except for the screen optimisation for iPhone X. In certain places, text is cut off and menus sometimes glitch and you are unable to quit them. Also when naming a ride the text box is completely cut off. Please fix these issues and I can give it the rating it deserves.


The best game port on IOS  Jacksonhammy  5 star

This game represents my childhood. The incredible way this has been integrated into the touch controls is perfect. 1 buying price and no DLC content means the game is well worth it.


Great game, but  PCi-if14d  4 star

Yes this game is a great rendition of the original but I am very disappointed at the complete lack of support from Atari. I had an issue with the game so I raised 4 tickets with Atari support, emailed several times and tried to register with them (I am still waiting for administrator approval to join, what’s that about!). I have now sorted out my problem myself but I am annoyed that I had no response from Atari. It would have been 5 stars otherwise.


I used to play  JacobW1600  1 star

I played all the time got into the third group of parks but then every time I get on unless I zoom in excessively it’s a very pixelated image(almost undistinguishable from one another) and I would love to see it fixed so I can enjoy the game again


Great game till it crashes  Frost__2001  5 star

I always loved this classic rollercoaster tycoon and this is where I have to complain, so far since I upgraded phones this is 2nd time ive has this issue, it loads up fine but when I went to continue or start a new game it freezes shortly after I move the screen anywhere. I’m using an iPhone X. You can hear the crowd and music but it just freezes and you have to exit out via home screen and then shut down the game to reload it, repeatedly, but even then it still continues to do this. Also the remedy that fixed this issue last time was downloading the expansions, I’ve downloaded all 3 now and still this issue.. weeks after getting the DLC for it.


I Love Roller Coaster Tycoon Classic!  D-3-B-0  5 star

Gotta Have It Stay Forever!!!!


Good .... but  Scotty44036  1 star

First cant get ahold of anyone in customer support , fun game to an extent . Not sure where the previous guy is talking about you can charge for admission , I have played all the different ones and you can’t charge in admission for ANY . Not sure if it’s glitch or what but you can’t . Second thing is the reasearch stops at a certain point you don’t get close to half of what you did on the computer game . Here was no steel rollercoaster half the food items are missing etc etc and there is only eye popping rides twister and pirate ship .


Needs an update for iPhone X  MT30062837  3 star

This game is perfect and I’ve played it a lot. I have even purchased one of the expansion pack and it’s great, but now the game won’t open. It worked once or twice on my new phone and had some issue like not being able to see things in the corners. Now the game won’t work at all. Just sits at the resuming screen. Please update!

Roller coaster tycoon  Mal Mals 7  4 star

It’s a wonderful game just like the old days I’m very impressed. I’m just having a hard time loading my saved games. Which makes it a bit frustrating. Other than that great game!


Same as I remember  Isabelle33  5 star

I love it so much just makes me feel like a kid again


Love this gaaaame  Bad_New  5 star

Classic I love it. Really impressed worth the money.


Love it. But.  zabicook  5 star

I’ve played this game for the past 18 years. I still play it. Honestly i don’t like the versions that came after it just because they were 3D and they somehow spoiled the fun. The simply 2D views and complex game play rules make this game wonderful, i feel it was way ahead of time when it came out. I don’t know if rct2 is still based on symbolic AI. I would love to see less pixelated graphics, more Intelligent guests, more things to take care of in the park, in an update of the game.


Stopped working  Hizzzzy  3 star

I was SO excited to play this game again, it brought back so many memories because it’s exactly like the old one you would download to your computer. But after about two months of playing, it all of a sudden just stopped working. I log in to my saved game, it opens it up fine, then maybe a minute of playing, it freezes and doesn’t turn back on. I tried deleting and re-downloading, still nothing. Such a bummer!

Can u add more trainz

Request  Can u add more trainz  5 star

Atari if you don’t mind would you be able to add a sandbox mode


The real RCT  Thmsryn  5 star

Delighted to see it on ios!


Loving this game  Nylers  5 star

Really love this Theme Park simulator. Great to be able to buy a full game with no microtransactions.

Mr creeps 12637460

Best game ever  Mr creeps 12637460  5 star

Great game like the original you should play it it's brilliant


Crashes all the time  Storminwolf  1 star

Nice game. Played it for like 3 hours. Then it crashed and is crashing automatically directly after starting ever since. Rebooted the phone, cleared the app, even deleted and reinstalled it. All to no avail. I work in tech support and are specialized in apps. Trust me this is a technical issue in the app. Do not buy this version wait until it is corrected and working properly.


Amazing  Chritography_  5 star

Worth every cent. Brings back memories. I'm so happy. Thank you
