There are four different modes in the game, namely Sandbox, Challenge, Career, and Scenario Editor. In the career mode, players assume the role of a theme park manager and must complete tasks such as constructing unfinished roller coasters or hiring janitors.

In Sandbox mode, players are tasked to construct their own theme park on an empty plot of land. The challenge mode is similar to the sandbox mode, but with added difficulty, as players need to take funds into the account. The Scenario Mode, which was added in the 1.4.0 update on November 22, 2017, is similar to career mode but allows the player to customize their own task in all saved parks.

Planet Coaster Parents Guide

  • This is a strategy game in which players create and manage a theme park with roller coasters.
  • Players can modify landscapes, create concession stands, and build customizable roller coasters to please crowds and earn in-game currency.
  • Unfinished coasters may cause cars to fly into crowded walkways; people are depicted hurtling into the air when struck—though they quickly get back up.
  • One coaster ride can cause customers to get nauseous, resulting in a vomit animation; park guests leave a beige splash on the ground.
  • This game offers players the opportunity to purchase in-game items in the form of additional content, which some parents or carers may want to be aware of.
  • Parents, carers or other responsible adults should check to see what is being offered before making any purchase on behalf of a child. It should be noted that the game can still be played without the need to purchase such items.

Planet Coaster Gameplay & Features

Planet Coaster is a construction and management simulation video game. Similar to its spiritual predecessor, the game allows players to build different theme park rides and roller-coasters. These player-created attractions can be shared through a mechanic called “global village”. The game also comes with ten mascots.

Before starting the game on the computer version, the player must create their own avatar. This game function though is not used or even done in the Console versions. Afterward, the player is able to choose between four game modes: sandbox, challenge, career, and scenario editor.

Similar to Frontier’s previous game, RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, the Sandbox Mode enables players to construct their own theme park on an empty plot of land. In Sandbox Mode, all features and rides of the game are unlocked and the player’s funds are unlimited. This is the mode most players use to create items (parks, coasters, scenery, etc.) and then post them to Steam’s Planet Coaster Workshop (not available for Mac App Store version), or the Frontier Workshop on the console versions.

In the Challenge Mode, the player must construct an amusement park on an empty lot (similar to Sandbox Mode) but with limited funds and research depending on chosen difficulty—Easy, Medium, or Hard. As the player develops their park, the game presents the player with challenges that the player must accept or decline. Upon completion of a challenge, the player is given a reward such as a park rating boost or a sum of money.

In the Career Mode, the player must complete objectives such as constructing roller coasters, achieving park ratings or hiring janitors. Similar to RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, Career Mode allows players to progress by completing scenarios with objectives in different difficulties.
