We live in an instant gratification society. We’re used to getting things now, or at least very quickly. RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch, however, wants you to relax and enjoy the ride(s).

To be fair, it’s hardly the only mobile game that makes you play for a while to unlock things, and even the original RollerCoaster Tycoon PC games required research to give you more building options. Besides, if Atari simply gave you the keys to everything right away and said, “Have at it,” you might not be in for the long haul.

Still, there’s also a decent chance you might be wondering exactly when you unlock certain rides, shops and decorations. All of that info is in the game itself, but in the interest of saving you time (and thus pulling this whole discussion full circle), we’ve gone ahead and done all the research for you. The following is a list of everything in the game that unlocks at specific levels as you advance through RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch.

Important note: Don’t forget that even once you reach the appropriate level to unlock a building, you still need to find it for the first time in a pack of cards before you can construct it. Reaching the right level just means those cards will begin to show up in packs. It also could lead to you being able to construct some higher level buildings before lower level ones if you find those cards first.

A word on coasters: It wouldn’t be much of a RollerCoaster Tycoon game without coasters, and Touch has seven different kinds. Keep in mind that before you can build one, you need all four of its basic cards: station, train, tracks and chain lift. Happily, those four cards always unlock at the same level for each coaster type, as you’ll see below.

What about Trophies?

Good question, and congrats on reading all the way to the end! Trophies are special kinds of decorations in RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch that can only be unlocked when you complete achievements. There are currently 17 Trophies in the game, and they give bonuses to nearby rides like other Decorations, so they’re definitely worth checking out.
