The Best Phone Game So Far!

I've had an iPhone since before the App Store was available, and I can finally say the quality of games has reached the PC quality mark. The dev of this game is the original developer, not Atari. It runs silky smooth even when moving your head around to view people eating cotton candy while zooming through a loop on a roller coaster.
The controls are amazingly thought out. You can have a simple roller coaster built in 20 minutes. It's all here - the tilt of the track, the height markers, block break speed, camera locations, tunnels, choosing how many cars per train, track color, path design- wait time for the cars, price of the ride, and fixing and repairing the ride. If I left something out, trust me, it's in the game.
The career mode is the full 20+ stages, and there is a sandbox mode as well. You control the price of each ride, each booth, or the entrance fee to your park. You control the cost of ketchup and when to train or fire your employees. Each guest has unique thoughts and desires so be sure to talk to each of them as well.
Simply put, unbelievable game. It plays excellent on the iPhone 6 and even better on the iPad's screen. A complete steal at $4.99. This has made me re-think phone games.

Amazing but has issues

This game has an amazing concept and brings out the creativity and imagination in all of us. I can customize rides, shops, and many more to my heart’s content. I would love to rate this game 4 stars, even 5! However, there are a bunch of issues. One is that this game will delete some of your theme parks in Sandbox Mode every time you save a new park. I have created a very nice park that my family really enjoys but after I made a new theme park, it deleted the park and duplicated the new park. This is very annoying and irritating because I worked very hard on the park. Another issue is the “Park Full” thing in the game. I don’t know if it’s based on the “peeps” or the park’s attractions but it is very frustrating as it disables building. When I leave the game and come back it still says “Park Full”. Lastly I feel like this game needs an update on the themes and paths. Making queue lines are annoying when it connects to the entrance and it breaks apart. I can’t even raise the paths when I need it. Also when I try to put trash cans, lights, etc. on elevated paths it will block me from doing so. Please take this feedback in and try to fix it in the best way possible. Thank you!

Needs Work but Still Enjoyable

Great game but has a lot of bugs. Still one of the best gaming apps I've found, even with the flaws. It's worth the money anyway.

Placing paths with varying heights can be maddening. Placing benches/trash cans etc. doesn't always work when it should. Needs the ability to find which staff member is working highlighted area without looking through all of them. Needs a fast forward button. Needs an undo button when doing construction on paths, terrain, etc. Research doesn't work half the time and when it does, it doesn't give what you asked for. It seems that changing the amount of funding for research doesn't have an affect on how much is discovered, either. Profit doesn't add up right. Some of the buttons don't function at all. Needs to let you select an attraction straight from the news alert about it. Needs a button to select and move large groups of people (when you're taking out a path) so that you don't have to move them one by one.
