My Amusement Park offers a good deal of variety as it mixes logic-based mini-games with bona fide park simulation elements. There are a finite number of attractions to build and play with, and once you've filled up your park, you may grow tired of it, but you can always start from scratch with a new park and a new theme (though the attractions are the same, no matter what theme you've chosen). Since you can get more money by playing games at higher levels, it can be fun to see how quickly you finish the park. And for kids in the 5 to 8 age range, this is a nice uncomplicated introduction to simulation games, too.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
