"Roller-coaster Tycoon 3" is an amusement park game where you can create rollercoasters and many other types of buildings. You can use the structures already available in the game or you can build your own using the game's structure design tools. These all operate on the same basic idea of clicking and dragging parts around the screen, although they use different parts. Creating your own structures can give your park a personalised look, which may be lacking if you only use the pre-installed parts.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Go to the main menu on the top of the screen and select the "Tools" option. From here, you can select the building designer, which will allow you to create all of the buildings in the game.

  2. 2

    Select the type of building you would like to make from the menu that opens. You can create rides, rollercoasters, restaurants or even scenery buildings, which work to make your park look more appealing.

  3. 3

    Select the walls or basic building block for your structure and create its basic size and shape. For example, a roller-coaster will start with the beginning of the ride and then requires laying down tracks. Buildings like restaurants will require walls.

  4. 4

    Add the details to your structure, which can help personalise it. Details are available under the specific building type in the building designer menu, and include floor colour, wallpaper, doors, windows, and roofs.

  5. 5

    Select "Save Structure" when you are finished building, and save your building to the "Custom Structures" folder. You can then use the building in the game.
