Hi coaster friends!

Ready to add some international flair to your parks? Our brand new World's Fair Pack is now LIVE. Please have your passports and boarding passes at the ready before watching the trailer below:


As per our announcement post, the World's Fair Pack is taking you on a trip around the world to immerse yourself in new cultures and flavours: there's 10 new brands which include traditional building and scenery pieces, shops, signage, vending machines, and other props for you to have a play with.

There's also two new coasters, the Jixxer and Interceptor, which are dueling motorcycle coasters, as well as a new futuristic transport ride, the Polarity. Be sure to take your guests on a high speed journey with either of those options!

Part of update 1.8 is a whole host of free content, such as restaurants, new fireworks and scenery, flexi-colour operation staff, and loads more! Be sure to check out the 1.8 update notes below for a full list of what's been added to the game.

You can get the World's Fair Pack for £7.99 on the Steam or Frontier store now. Please keep in mind that it's completely optional for you to purchase; we're very grateful for your continued support.


p.s. If you have any blueprints to share for tomorrow's livestream, please send them to or drop them below in the thread!

Free Update 1.8

  • Restaurants - effective eateries for large parks
  • Restaurants are built like hotels, in that you expand capacity with additional expansions
  • Restaurants have perks and can only have one active at a time, with perks for different sizes of restaurant
  • Perks change the demographic of guests that will visit that restaurant, so you can tailor the restaurant to the types of guests that visit your park
  • Each restaurant has its own menu and you can select which items to sell from brands in the Main Game or from the World's Fair Pack
  • Menu items are licensed from brands and you pay a flat licensing fee for each brand
  • The star rating of the restaurant is affected by the number of brands you’re using, the size of the restaurant, the scenery rating and the different perks
  • Janitors are needed to maintain the cleanliness of the restaurant

  • Added a new Favourites category
  • Simply click the star on an item to add it to your favourites
  • Surely a certain tropical rock #7 would make the cut?

  • These tags can be searched or filtered as with other tags
  • Lapping Coaster mode - perfect for shuttle coasters
  • Changed and consolidated the Operations panel for coasters to include up to 3 modes - standard, lapping and block section
  • Lapping mode fixes the track to one train with a number of cars. The number of laps defines how many times the train can go through the station forwards or reverse
  • Standard mode works as it always has for most coasters with adjustable numbers of cars and trains
  • Block Sectioned mode works as it used to with the number of trains available based on the stations and block sections on the track

Hooray! Thanks everyone at Frontier! Thanks for being so passionate about this wonderful game! <3

I'll look into the new update and DLC as soon as I get home from work... :D
That patch notes list certainly looks impressive!

Downloaded, already in, immediately checked to see if you can put the Jixxer/Interceptor Bikes on the Barghest's track and you can!

Now back to playing [big grin]
Great update notes! Although still such a shame about this one:
  • There is no change to coasters that used to have laps like Viper One or coasters that were using Block Sections already
I'm loving the new tab format.
The no blue glow is awesome!
I have the feeling this will be my favourite update ever.
Great work Dev's and Thank you Bo! [heart][heart][heart]
Really lovely trailer, congratulations for whoever made it! It's great whenever King Coaster gets a little time in the spotlight.

Can't wait to play tonight.
Increase in picnic bench usage? It’s the little things that make me smile 😊.

Overall sounds like a fantastic update when taken as a whole.
The Polarity tracked ride is my new favourite ride in the game! Congrats to the devs... the look of that ride, the animation and that perfectly built tracksystem - this is just an amazing piece of art, looking so cool and beautiful! And the trailer is pure eye candy! Can't wait to play and build with that amazing add-on! Thank you so much! Best game ever! A lot of greets, Corkscrewloop[happy]

Special thanks to the amazing QA team for all of the fixes for bugs and issues. That's a nice list of improvements! : )
Loving the update so far! :D

I'm sure others are thinking the same thing but are the new DLC brands going to be added to restaurant menus anytime soon?
