Theme Park is now on GOG.com

and as a result, I feel really old

Whilst looking at the newly-created page on GOG.com for Theme Park, I was shocked by the revelation of its original release date of 1994. Was Bullfrog's seminal management sim really that old? In fairness, looking at screenshots of Theme Park today it brings back memories that are, to be honest, a little mixed up with RollerCoaster Tycoon

Theme Park came out on almost every system imaginable at the time and its hook of managing your own theme park was totally intoxicating. Although the managerial gameplay was improved upon by the release of Theme Hospital three years later, I think I still want to play Theme Park again just to see if it holds up.
