OpenRCT2 recreates RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 into opensource code. This allows us to add new features, fix original bugs and raise game limits. There's even multiplayer co-op!

An installation of RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 is required in order to play OpenRCT2. RCT2, with expansions, is cheap nowadays and can be bought from G2A, GOG and Steam. Alternatively, you can play a limited edition by installing the free Mini-Game.
