There are two things wrong with the Skateboard Park Tycoon game title. First, it should be “Skatepark Tycoon” or “Skate Park Tycoon.” Second, nobody really makes money running a skateboard park. Skateboard Park Tycoon combines a sims type atmosphere with all the fun of building your own pretend skatepark and and sitting there watching pretend people skate it. It was so good, they made three of them.

This World tour stop must be the Pacific Northwest, because those look like Portland home brew transitions…
Here’s the parking lot where you can kick out little simulated Grosso and Lucero and watch them simulate vert moves on simulated curbs.
