The Sandbox Mode enables you to construct a park on an empty plot of land with all features and rides unlocked. The Challenge Mode restricts funds and sets targets for play. The Career Mode takes you through a series of objectives to evolve and develop your park.
The enjoyment is usually found in creating ever more fantastically, and ridiculous Roller Coaster rides that you can then experience in the first-person perspective.
