This is the game that initially that got me into management games and it still holds up well today. Managing all your staff, building rides and keeping all your customers happy is all extremely absorbing and well designed.
If you haven't played it then download it and get wrapped up in the game and if you have played it get back into this classic and re-explore it.

Theme Park was a very good game for its time and provides lots of nostaliga value. It might be worth playing if you played it before and can't get enough of bullfrog humor. However, if you are looking for pure gameplay value, Rollercoaster Tycoon appeared 5 years after this game and is available on gog.com for the same price and is mostly better in everything.
I can't really rateread more this game down just because someone made the game with newer technology better than it was ^^

Even now, the original Theme Park holds up well as one of the better theme park building and management games. Period. The inspiration for the (also excellent) Roller Coaster Tycoon many years later, Theme Park's sense of humour (inspiring its spiritual successor Theme Hospital), cartoony graphics and charm still set it apart from most other games today, and it's still very muchread more worth playing. Where RCT focuses more on the park and ride design aspects, Theme Park delves deeper into the managerial side of running a theme, with research and staff negotiations playing a role as well. Highly recommended to fans of the genre.
