You play as a budding designer tasked with creating the perfect theme park. Each turn, you buy rides and concessions and join them carefully together lining up paths on the tiles. Your aim is to add a wide variety of rides, whilst ensuring that they are linked to the right combinations of concessions. This means you can welcome the most people to your park. But, the more useful a ride, the more it costs. As you play, space on your map becomes more limited, and forces you to make difficult decisions about the rides you purchase and the ones that you have to leave for someone else to buy.
At the end of each round, your park welcomes a bus load of Meeple figures, which you must accommodate in your park. Leave any on the bus and you score minus points but for each you add to your park you earn money to spend in the next round. After four rounds the player with the most points is the winner.
What starts as a fun world-building experience, quickly develops into a strategic real-estate puzzle. You must use your resources carefully to ensure that your park has the best rides but you can still afford to install toilets. But all the while other players are racing to open their parks and grab the buses with the most Meeple figures. Take too long and you'll build the perfect park but have no one to visit.
Play Time: This game will take between 45 minutes and 1 hour to complete.
8-10 year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Younger players need to be able to count money, make strategic decisions over the four rounds and deal with the disappointment of someone else claiming your perfect bus full of people.
