  • Summary: Thrillville allows gamers of all ages to easily build and customize the coaster of your dreams. Gone are the days of the complex PC techniques used in other coaster games. Rather, Thrillville's easy to use building mode has been designed specifically for the console platforms and makes building all 75-plus rides from wooden, corkscrew and inverted coasters to merry go rounds, trains and carnival rides, easy, and most importantly, fun. Imagination is the only height limit with Thrillville, where the fun ranges from racing on go-kart tracks you put together and playing mini-golf on courses you designed to joining friends for dozens of four-player party games, from bumper cars to arcade shoot-‘em-ups. You can also tour the park on foot – a first for theme-park titles – chatting and joking with all the guests to help them out and make sure they’re enjoying themselves. [LucasArts] Expand

  1. If you're looking for a fun game that you can play with the kids, or as a group, this is a solid purchase and does its job quite well.
  2. The dialog is well acted and quite humorous. The music is perfect for this game and maintains a consistently light and upbeat mood. It’s hard to be in a bad mood when you’re in Thrillville.
  3. Thanks to its rock-solid execution, Thrillville delivers an enjoyable batch of minigames in a lighthearted theme park environment.

    Of course, the combination of sim and action game is sometimes a bit jarring, making the game seem like it doesn't really know what it wants to be. Regardless, Thrillville is a fun game, and if you're a fan of sim games on the PC, this would be a good way to introduce the genre to a child or younger sibling.
  5. Wandering around on foot is a new and interesting way to see the park you make, and it's simple enough for kids, but the whole package is more "Okaytown". [Jan. 2007, p.85]
  6. It’s hard to dislike a game that displays such breezy charm, and it would be harsh to dismiss Thrillville as a kids’ RollerCoaster Tycoon as it’s streets ahead of much of the licensed tat out there. [Jan 2007, p.100]
  7. A trip to Thrillville takes you on a long, unnecessary detour through Dullsville.

    Great game - my kids both love it, absolute must for parents thinking of getting their kids something safe and fun for Christmas.

    Thrillville lets you build the park of your dreams. At least, that's what they say. Obviously, you can't recreate an exact replica of Space Mountain, but it does enough to be fun, and compelling. Using basic rollercoaster physics, the game let's you plan, build, and manage a successful amusement park. You can talk with guests, play various mini-games and even ride your own rides! Although, the humor is a bit cheesy, it still delivers a great gaming experience. 9 out of 10 from me. Expand

    This is a fun game for kids from 8 and up. Lots to do. Not roller coaster tycoon, but it is fun to play together.

    Isn't inspirational, it so mechanical, the humor is corny and stupid. The idea makes you excited, but its entirely dull, when there is sucky things to buy to finance the theme park and make it a wealthy one. But its impossible, the game is too weak, Mr. Morrtimer is noticably annoying everytime you hear or see him, he's a huge embarasement, and totally dumb. With the dialogue being so weird, boring, and the reactions whenever your character explains something is badly portrayed and inccorectly acted. It's mistaken through all its operation parts, Thrillville sucks. But its minigames are very appealing, everyone of them is fun and engaging. But becides that, the game is a mess of tools. Expand
