Game Info

LucasArts today announced that Thrillville, the videogame where players create and experience the theme park of their dreams, will open its gates for a whole new season in Thrillville: Off the Rails. Featuring some of the most outlandish roller-coaster concepts ever imagined, as well as new ways to talk to park guests and a wider array of carnival games, this October release amps up the family-friendly mix of gameplay that made the original Thrillville such a hit. Frontier Developments returns to create Off the Rails, which will scream onto the Xbox 360 videogame system from Microsoft, Wii home videogame system from Nintendo, PlayStation2 computer entertainment system, PSP (PlayStationPortable) system, Games for Windows and, with the help of developer DC Studios, Nintendo DS. Off the Rails lives up to its name with 20 death-defying rides so outrageous, they inspire the same word from every park visitor who sees them: "WHOA!" Players build these incredible "WHOA Coasters" to leap from one track to another, launch through the air like cannonballs, blast through burning rings of fire and more.
A new lighthearted story ties together more than 100 missions, complete with 34 playable multiplayer theme-park games and improved social interaction with park guests. The in-depth conversations both advance the plot and suggest better ways to manage the park. But is every guest to be trusted? One never knows when a rival from the nefarious Globo-Joy might attempt to sabotage Thrillville parks with deceptive information…
"Between its amazing new WHOA Coasters, improved socialization, and a huge selection of minigames, Thrillville: Off the Rails is practically three great games in one, and it offers a fantastic bang for the buck," said Jim Ward, president of LucasArts. "We're also excited to introduce the franchise to four new platforms so that even more families can enjoy the Thrillville experience together."
"Together, LucasArts and Frontier challenged ourselves to improve upon everything that made the original Thrillville such a success," said David Braben, chairman and founder of Frontier. "I believe that we have more than met this challenge, and I wouldn't be surprised if Thrillville achieves some 'record attendance' with Off the Rails."

i loved playing these type of games on my computer, its good to see there bringing the genre to the 360, with 100 missions this game doesnt sound like a 2 night rental for the 1k

Yeah these were fun to play on the PC...I used to play these when I was really young along with the tycoon games, hopefully they put some of them on the 360.
