Does any one know of a good themepark simulator that has accurate numbers for loads and such?

Im working on a research project and havent had much luck finding anything but games, which aren't going to be accurate.

Mission Space is a great simulator. Even it has high capacity, the line usually reaches almost 3 hours!Star Tours also one of the best simulator. The high capacity makes this attraction have a short wait.Another simulator ride that will awed you is StormRider from Tokyo DisneySea. The special effects are believeable especially when you get spurted by water and when your plane almost exploded!

But for me, the best simulator ride is Soarin' and Soarin' Over California. The capacity is high enough. But just like another Disney rides, the line tends to be super long in summer vacation or peak time.

I think he's talking about a computer program that simulates the operation of a theme park. Interestingly, probably the most accurate is Roller Coaster Tycoon. The Atari game has some features that are actually rather realistic in terms of park capacity, attraction statistics, and guest satisfaction. There really isn't anything else out there that I know about.

Roller Coaster Tycoon probably has the most realistic simulator experience. But the simulator ride in RCT3 is impossible to build. Just look at Power Boat Simulator Ride. How could the water and the simulator become one?

I just wish it was easier to build theming in the game. It is too hard to build walls and stuff. Though it does seem the most realistic.

Get the 2nd one if you're into scenery. It's much easier to build in RCT2 then in the dissapointing 3rd edition.
