Planet Coaster is getting a free update alongside the Vintage Pack.

Frontier Developments is launching a Planet Coaster Vintage Pack with new rides, scenery props, and interactive vending machines.

The premium pack includes:

New Coasters

  • Zephyrus. A classic example of the world’s first high-speed wooden coasters that can be traced back to the 1920s. Beautifully aged with a tarnished old-fashioned charm
  • Aces Sky. Another historic type of wooden coaster, with wooden tracks replaced by a large wooden pipe

New Rides

  • Round the World. Combining the gentle motion of a Ferris wheel with the insanity of spinning, inverted gondolas. Despite their apparent danger, similar rides have stood the test of time and still operate today
  • Loop Da Loop. Buckle up and prepare to loop head over heels in this twin cabin inverting swinging ride from the 1930s
  • Test Flight. Take off and practice your flying skills in this spinning, inverting plane ride. Each car has a set of wings which the guests control to roll the cabin of their vintage aircraft
  • Hurricane. A real classic found in many parks and fairgrounds around the world, the Hurricane twists and turns at tremendous speed
  • Centrum. Feel the excitement of spinning at high speed at a thrilling 50 degrees in this classic centrifuge ride that’s been a favourite for generations of fairground and carnival fans

New Park and Scenery Items

  • Iconic Vending Machines. Have guests entertain themselves with the classic fortune-telling Zoltan machine, or try out the Gumball and Popcorn machines synonymous with old-school town fairs
  • Vintage Scenery. Decorate parks with distinctive vintage items including Victorian pillars,, lightbox lettering and animal statues
  • New Entertainment. For the ultimate in classic seaside and town fair entertainment, players can add a stylish barbershop quartet or trapeze artists to wow guests

Classic Audio

  • New music by JJ Ipsen and triggered sound effects provide classic ambience to make vintage parks come alive

Alongside the premium Vintage Pack, players can download a free update that includes a new coaster called Mouse Hunt that’s “a loving tribute to a dying breed of rickety and bumpy coasters with sharp corners and little banking through a unique grid based track.”

It also includes a Crane Machine for guests, vending machines, plants, and vintage and contemporary colour filters.

The Planet Coaster Vintage Pack drops on July 10 and is priced at £7.99/ $10.99/ €10.99.
