I plan to build a video game themed amusement park in Roller Coaster Tycoon 3, something that I haven't seen done before, we have movie themed parks, so why not game theme parks.

Anyway, I would like some help and ideas with the park, I want to use very minimal custom scenery as I have a 'shit' PC. Aside from help for the game themed attractions, I would like some help on making realistic park entrances and main streets without custom scenery, I search online and all I get are ones with custom scenery.

Last and least, I need a good name, if I can't find one, it will just end up being called Game World.

I already have a few ideas, tell me if they are good:

  • [*]Tomb Raider (White Water Rapids) [*]The Legend of Zelda (Looping Coaster) [*]Red Dead Redepmtion (Mine Train Coaster) [*]Call of Duty (unknown), due to the franchises popularity, I will have to include a CoD themed ride, it will be very tempting to making it a junior coaster [*]Angry Birds Duo (Suspended Swinging Coaster), will be a dueling coaster. [*]Need for Speed (Twister Coaster), will be a launched coaster rather than one with a chain lift. [*]Mario Kart (Go-Karts), this is one of the few rides that I will download a custom scenery set for. [*]Metal Gear Solid (3D Cinema)

The rides will not just have generic names, they will have names like Need for Speed: Nitro (I may steel the names from lesser known games from franchises so I can easily slap their logo onto a billboard).

Other game series that will have rides include: Resident Evil, Mass Effect, GTA, Sonic, etc. I will try to include themed areas, for example, one area may feature rides based on retro games such as Pacman and Space Invaders (this is where I will need the most help with ideas).

Thanks for the ideas, I play too many video games as well, that's why I decided on an video game theme for an RCT3 park. I think the tetris drop tower and sonic heartline are great ideas, well they all are but those stand out the most. As for the Saints Row Giga and Guitar Hero Corkscrew, I don't see the resemblance

Tomb Raider should be a dark ride attraction similar to the Indiana Jones Disneyland ride(or perhaps even kinda like Scooby), not a White Water Rapids. Doesn't suit the theme when you really think about it. I'd make Uncharted: The Ride a Jungle Cruise themed river rapids. More suitable. Space Invaders would be a 4D motion simulator film(with the rider getting a Laser gun and shooting at targets) OR a Justice League-type shooting darkride to me. But it would only be loosely based on the game. You play as a space cadet crew that is called upon to defend the planet from an Alien parasite attack(sound familiar? JL all the way). Pretty much JL IS Space Invaders: The Ride! I would create "lands" such as: - Segaworld(Inc a Sonic Show) - Nintendoland inc a kids area themed to the Mushroom Kingdom and a Donkey Kong area(possibly called Donkey Kong Country) that would merge into - Retroland(with sections devoted to Atari and Namco.... A Pacman kids show/parade, a jungle log ride based on Pitfall) - Sony Kingdom(Tomb Raider, Resident Evil, the Rockstar games and Possibly a Spiro Kids Area) - Xbox X-treem Adventure(Halo, Etc... I'd put a Halo Stunt Show In here too)

Great ideas, I was already considering themed lands but nothing as fast as you suggested. As for Tomb Raider, construction has already begun on the white water rapids ride, which is a bummer considering a dark ride sounds much more intense, I guess I could replace the white water tracks with a wild mouse and reuse the theming.

I would like to thank everyone who has taken their time to comment the post so far, progress on the park is moving slowly but surely, it just sucks that I struggle with the two things that you have to build first when making a realistic park, the entrance and main street. Also, since the trains are themed like drag cars, does a Need for Speed Srata-coaster sound like a good idea or bad idea? Instead of the launched twister coaster (which I also chose due to train theming) that I mentioned before.

^Does a theme park need a main street though?

Could it be a circular hub or something along those lines?

Not every park needs a main street, however I do, as i'm already using the circular hub idea, main street leads to to the center of the park, where I will try to incorporate a central hub. So various paths can hopefully lead off to various themed lands, some rides (such as the Metal Gear Solid 3D Cinema, which will be located in Main Street.) will be located outside the themed lands.

Maybe for Nintendo Land area, base it on the actual Nintendo Land game? you could have a actual xbox (original) as an enclosed building. And GTA could be a car coaste Once you are done, you could put a youtube link in your signature, like Joz has done

      A while ago I reached out on here for any helpful info about theme parks to assist me in writing an animated comedy pilot about a run-down Aussie amusement park.
      I’m excited to share that the first episode has been written and we are looking for people who want to be involved through Kickstarter: http://kck.st/2SzSI6K
      The link shows a short preview of the comedy (There’s a roller coaster called the Red-bellied Black Snake!) and also has some pledge rewards that may interest anybody who wants to become a cartoon character in a show!
      Additionally, I’ve also written about my Theme Park experiences as a kid growing up in Sydney during the 80s and 90s. (Wonderland, Old Sydney Town, El Caballo Blanco, SegaWorld, Green Valley Farm, Tomteland, Fox Studios Backlot Tour and others all get a mention): http://www.pacificrock.com.au/blog/nurry-brothers-adventure-world/come-and-revisit-your-favourite-childhood-amusement-park/

      Not sure if this has been discussed,
       
      But does anyone else think that Village Roadshow should sell Sea World to 'Sea World Theme Parks & Resorts'? And if so, does anyone actually know the chances of it actually happening?
      The park seems to have gotten worse over the years and it's honestly just sad, so I'm hoping that a decent company could make it 'good' again.
      Plus if they did sell it, then it could help Village pay off debt. After all, they sold Wet'n'Wild Sydney, so what harm could selling Sea World do?
       
      (By the way - if this has been discussed before then can someone please just link me to the thread?)

      Was googling some things and came across this recent article;
       
      https://www.ausleisure.com.au/news/merlin-entertainments-looks-to-develop-new-australian-expansion/
       
      It seems they want to open up a 'Dungeons' somewhere here... and they want to open another Legoland Discovery Centre.
