How Do I Create Theme Areas in RollerCoaster Tycoon Platinum 3?


The themepark tycoon game, "RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Platinum," takes the basic "RollerCoaster Tycoon 3," and adds several expansion packs. One of the challenges in the game comes when visitors start to demand themed areas. There isn't a clearly-marked "Create Themed Area" section in the menu: instead, players must create areas using themed objects, in order to give their zones the coherent themes demanded by the park's visitors.

  • Open the "Scenery" menu and choose "Fence." Click and drag your mouse around the portion of your park that you want to create a themed area within.

  • Click the "Shop and Facilities Placement" icon to bring up the "Browser" window. Click the "Theme" icon, third from the left at the top of the window.

  • Choose the theme you want your area to have and click on a item within the menu window.

  • Click within the main window to place your themed item. Fill your space with larger rides, smaller benches and scenery items--all chosen from the same "Theme" category. This will create your themed area.

Tips & Warnings

  • Rollercoasters are exempt from theme requirements: if you want to add a coaster to your themed area, there is no need to make it conform to the theme. This won't detract from your themed area's "attraction score."
