Frontier Development released the first Alpha version of Planet Coaster on March 22. Those looking to construct their first roller coaster will notice the Coasters section in the build menu is grayed out. This was hidden by Frontier since the coasters are under heavy construction, with a lot of bugs to work out. We did discover a way to unlock the Coaster build section and we will show you how to access the hidden option.
The first step is to start the game and select a park of your choice. In this Planet Coaster tutorial we selected the sandbox mode to build our own park from scratch. Once the park has been selected, open up the Rides menu and click the magnifying glass icon. This action pops up a new window, game’s search option, which is a good tool for finding the exact things you want.
Once the search menu has appeared, click on the search box and type in “underconstruction”. This will unlock the Coasters option, which will appear on the bottom menu bar. Now you have the ability to build from one of the two different types of coaster tracks.
