On 27 June, Frontier’s Planet Coaster will receive a free Summer Update adding more ride and attraction options. Fireworks, customisable wall panels, and painted wooden coasters are all coming the game’s way.
A new ‘display sequencer’ will give players control over firework events. You’ll be able to trigger them alongside other park events, and set them to music if you wish. If that seems daunting, it’ll be possible to download pre-created displays from other Planet Coaster players.
The wall panels will let you place your own images and video inside Planet Coaster (uh oh), while the ‘flatride sequencer’ will let you “take total control over your favorite rides”. Here’s a trailer, followed by a run-down of the other additions.
Iron Claw. Feel the G-force with this classic pendulum ride, popular in parks around the world.
Blackout. This swinging ship ride is a coaster park classic, flipping park guests upside down with an inverting loop.
Sky Watcher. A stunning ultramodern observation platform forged from glass and steel with a rotating cabin offering panoramic views. A perfect centerpiece for any modern park.
Gnarler. An all-modern train running on wooden supports will let your guests ride rough wooden tracks in comfort and style.
Viper One. Two 66 meter supports elevate and inline roll at each end for a truly terrifying multi-launch coaster.
Power Up. This compact coaster with a vertical inverting chainlift is designed for small-scale parks where land is tight, making for a short but exhilarating ride.
De-Gen. A 21st century train on a traditional looping track brings a coaster classic up to date.
Bolt. An old-school coaster train makes for a rugged ride on a modern boomerang track.
