Starting with a free plot of land in the United Kingdom and few hundred thousand dollars, the player must make money by opening rides and selling merchandise and refreshments. Newer products can be bought after researching them. Once enough money has been made the player can move on to newer plots. Plots are located all over the world and have many different factors that affect gameplay, including the economy, terrain and land value.


There are over thirty available in the game. Depending on the platform the game is being played on, it is possible to tour the park or the rides. There are simple rides like the bouncy castle and tree house, and more complicated and expensive rides like the Roller Coaster and Haunted House.


There is a focus in the staff side of the park as well. People employed in the park include the entertainers, security guards, mechanics and cleaners. Lack of staff can cause problems, including messy parks, blown up rides, crime and sad visitors. Occasionally wages must be renegotiated; failure to re-negotiate results in staff strikes.
