Install OpenRCT2

Use the links below to download OpenRCT2. The latest release is a stable, well-tested build, but may have fewer features than the latest development builds. The development builds are analogous to beta versions - they should work, but don't expect everything to be perfect.

Download latest releaseDownload latest development build

Note: If you wish to play online, it is recommended to download the latest development build, as most servers will be running this; you cannot connect to a server running a different version.

Select your RCT2 game files location

When you launch OpenRCT2 for the first time, OpenRCT2 will try to find your RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 installation. It will check the default locations that RCT2 is typically installed for all known releases. If it is unable to find it, or you have installed it to a different location, OpenRCT2 will show a dialog allowing you to select the directory containing your RCT2 game files.
