Hayo friends!
Welcome to April's catch up! If you haven't read one of these before, we use this time to reflect on the month by having a look at community creations, highlighting any news from the month and more!

A fun month for us! We released Update 1.11 and the Classic Rides Collection on 16 April, as well as Update 1.11.1 later in the month. Update 1.11 is a free update, in partnership with Carowinds in the Carolinas - The Copperhead Strike. Our developers recreated the new, popular ride from the Carowinds theme park in Planet Coaster, so you can ride it from the leisure of your own home!

The Classic Rides Collection, which we showed on stream, contains nine new rides and one variation:
  • Sky Temple
  • Gondola
  • Infinite
  • Interdimensional
  • Armada
  • Rising Raptor and Golden Eagle
  • Macchina Classica
  • Free Flyer
  • Swift Drifters
Additional community requests, such as adding a Hold and Launch LSM utility section and customised lights have been added to coasters now! Update 1.11.1, which we released last week, included a small list of bug fixes. If you haven't found any benefit from the latest updates, please file a report on our new issue tracker and we will look into it for you!

We had a variety of different streams this month to highlight the updates, such as the one with Carowinds Rep Lisa Stryker as well as one with Producer Lloyd Morgan-Moore, who recently joined the Planet Coaster development team after working on Elite Dangerous, and received a warm welcome from the community.

Not to mention, we also announced Planet Zoo! The next game in the Planet Series, Planet Zoo will allow the player to build a world for wildlife with the most authentic animals in videogame history. You can check out the announcement trailer here:

They’re very secretive though. We have no idea what they are working on until closer to the release. Maybe there will be another ride pack within 3-4 months from now. However it was leaked that they are working on a Ghostbusters pack, but is that true? I’d rather have 10 more rides because we have enough scenery, walls, and roofs for now. I would though love a Universal Monsters pack since they have the rights to make Universal packs. Animated Frankenstein monster, Dracula, Wolfman, Mummy, etc. although someone could make those in the toolkit.
