Planet Coaster Console Gameplay Footage Shows What A Well-Managed Park Looks Like

The rollercoaster and theme park sim is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, and Xbox One later this year.


Planet Coaster is coming to consoles, and ahead of its late 2020 release, a gameplay trailer has been released to show off the kind of parks you'll be able to create. This trailer shows off a particularly well-designed park in the game, which is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, and Xbox One.

While the trailer doesn't show anything of the console UI, it indicates some of the things you'll be able to do will a controller, including building modifications, drawing paths for walkways, and dropping workers into the park.

Check the trailer out below, and reminisce about when it was safe and fun to visit theme parks before the COVID-19 pandemic (some theme parks are open now, but whether they're safe to visit is another question entirely).

Whether or not players will be able to make a park that looks this good and runs this well on their first attempt remains to be seen, of course.

Planet Coaster received a 9/10 in GameSpot's review. Reviewer Edmond Tran wrote that the game is "focused on the positivity that amusement parks can bring, one that fosters even the smallest spark of imagination and creativity."
