Atari & Six Flags Partner Up on RollerCoaster App Game Tycoon Touch

by Gary Catig

RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch is an installment of the franchise that can be found on mobile devices. The app, which has been downloaded over 22 million times, is a simulation game that allows players to create and manage their own theme park.

Publisher, Atari, recently announced a partnership with Six Flags Entertainment to incorporate some of the theme park company’s most popular brands, like rides, shops and themes, into RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch. They can be found in the latest Six Flags Season update. Players can build such thrill rides as the rollercoaster, Tatsu, or Spinsanity, the giant disc that soars across a colorful halfpipe. They can have their visitors dine at Primo’s Pizzeria or grab a snack at Coaster Candy. These and other Six Flags attractions can be obtained by in-game purchases or unlocking them by completing in-game challenges. New attractions will become available throughout the year.

Tony Chien, Vice President of Marketing, Atari, says:

RollerCoaster Tycoon is the most authentic and popular theme park simulation series available. Through this partnership, fans will be able to add an even deeper level of realism by introducing some of the most iconic real-world rides into their virtual theme park creations – and even re-create some of their favorite Six Flags theme park experiences.

For a game based on developing a theme park, it wouldn’t be a stretch to form a strategic partnership with Six Flags. The company has numerous locations so there is plenty of options to draw from. Tatsu is already confirmed but what if other Magic Mountain rides popped up like X2 or Goliath. From the East Coast? How about constructing El Toro or Kingda Ka from Great Adventure or Batwing Coaster from Six Flags America? Now players can see if their custom-built coasters can match up with real life heavy weights.
