This summer, Frontier Developments and LucasArts will attempt to put the thrill back into theme park simulations with Thrillville -- an amalgam of park building, cart racing, miniature golf, and even first-person shooting contests (against robots, not people). The main objective in Thrillville is to build your park using one of 15 themes, and then enjoy it with your fellow patrons. Micromanagement is supposedly minimized in the game, but there are basic park administration issues that will need to be addressed such as security, sanitation, and fair pricing.

The last gen graphics look anything but thrilling, but if the developer's attempt to combine multiple family-friendly genres results in strong gameplay, they could have a hit for all ages. Thrillville will be available on Xbox, PS2, and PSP.
