Is Zynga heading back to the theme park with CoasterVille?
Here are the three questions in their (apparent) entirety:
1) How likely would you be to try a new Facebook game called CoasterVille?
2) Please explain why you would be likely or not likely to play a game named CoasterVille. (Please be specific)
3) Based on the name alone, which of the following Facebook games woudl you be the most likely to try? Roller CoasterVille, Thrill Park, or CoasterVille?
While we haven't been able to take this survey personally (and there are no public Facebook pages based on any of these names), this all sounds fairly believable, especially when you take into account Zynga's fondness for player surveys and tradition of asking players for opinions about game names shortly before they launch. But wait Brandy, I hear you saying, didn't Zynga already have a theme park game that crashed and burned? Indeed, Roller Coaster Kingdom was closed in 2010, but more than two years have passed since that game ultimately failed, so perhaps Zynga feels that the Facebook gaming audience is ready for another ride. Whatever the case, you can be sure we'll stay on top of this "CoasterVille" rumor and will let you know if it becomes anything more concrete.
Would you be willing to try another theme park simulation game on Facebook? Do you still miss the days when Roller Coaster Kingdom was available? Sound off in the comments!
