Theme Park Studio
Intro: Theme Park Studio is a powerful suite of tools that allows players to design, build, and experience stunning amusement parks of their own design. Players can build whatever they can imagine and then share it online for others to experience.
Review: If there is one type of game I’ve personally been looking forward to playing inside VR is is a roller coaster / theme park creator. And here we are, but it is any good?
Theme Park Studio is no rollercoaster tycoon VR. It is more alike the NoLimits Roller Coaster Simulation game, it is a theme park designer, not a walk around a prebuilt one. The fun and enjoyment comes from making your own theme park and enjoying it yourself. You don’t have guests or park earnings to worry about, it’s about what makes you happy. The really good news is the rollercoasters are fully simulated rides with both physics and sound which make them quite convincing when riding them in VR!
Verdict: While the controls are not the easiest to get used to, with time and patients you will. If you have a creative mind and some 3D modelling skills you will find this to be the best tool to make your own theme park rides. But for us less skilled gameplay lovers, it might be a learning curve that many of us will never climb. But if you are willing to stick with it, this sandbox theme park will keep you amused for months and with the ride designer, you will be coming back to play it time and time again.
