Roller Coaster Tycoon Lingo

Here is a dictionary of RCT Lingo that people often are confused about.

AA- AA is the abbreviation for Added Attractions which is the Worlds version of Corkscrew Follies. You will often see the two together as CF/AA. They are the second version and first add-on pack of the original Roller Coaster Tycoon.

Archy- Just short for Architecture. I have even heard things like the name Archie used for short.

Add-on Pack- An Add-on pack is an addition to a game. Add on packs for Roller Coaster Tycoon the Original is Corkscrew Follies/Added Attractions and Loopy Landscapes. Since Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 is a totally different game with revamped 2D graphics it is not an Add-on pack of Roller Coaster Tycoon the Original as Roller Coaster Tycoon 3(D) isn't either. Add-on packs of Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 are Wacky Worlds and Time Twisters.

CF- CF is the abbreviation for Corkscrew Follies which is the American version of Added Attractions. You will often see the two together as CF/AA. They are the second version and first add-on pack of the original Roller Coaster Tycoon.

CS-CS is simply the abbreviation of the creator of Roller Coaster Tycoon Chris Sawyer.

Fantasy Photo- Fantasy Photo's are just edited Roller Coaster Tycoon Photo's. The RCT Lingo Logo I made at the top of this article is somewhat of a Fantasy Photo. Fantasy Photo's are often abbreviated at forums and other places as FF's

Judgment Day- Judgment Day is just a name I have given to the day that is the deadline for the scenario. I have never actual heard anyone refer to the deadline as judgment day, however I have made it up for this site.

LL-LL is simply the abbreviation for Loopy Landscapes. Loopy Landscapes is the 2nd and final add-on pack of Roller Coaster Tycoon the Orginal.

Loop-Also known as a vertical a loop. A vertical loop is just a plain loop and are usually tear-drop shaped to keep Gforce's down. In RCT to build a loop you start to build a hill to go up and then with the _________ button you shall find the option to build a loop to the right or a loop to the left. To view a loop click on the thumbnail to enlarge.

Peeps- Peeps are simply the guest in your park.

RCT- RCT is simply the abbreviation for Roller Coaster Tycoon. You will often see a number beside RCT which is representing whether it's Roller Coaster Tycoon 1(The Original), Roller Coaster Tycoon 2, or Roller Coaster Tycoon 3.

Supports-Supports are what hold the roller coaster up. In RCT2 and further versions of the game you can customize your supports.

Vertical Loop-Also commonly known as just a loop. A vertical loop is just a plain loop and are usually tear-drop shaped to keep Gforce's down. In RCT to build a loop you start to build a hill to go up and then with the _________ button you shall find the option to build a loop to the right or a loop to the left. To view a picture of a vertical loop click the thumbnail to the right to enlarge it.

Workbench-A workbench is usually used in contest and such. It usually has a fixed map, a fixed amount of money, and a fixed amount of peeps. In Roller Coaster Tycoon the Original to make a Workbench it involved . Today with Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 and above you can just use the sandbox mode.
