This is a quick summary of what updates should be installed when you install (or wish to update) RCT3. First it is most important to install the expansions in the correct order. When installing the expansions, it must be in the following order: RCT3 --> Soaked --> Wild If you have already installed Wild and need to install Soaked at a later date you should uninstall RCT3 and the reinstall in the above order.

Important! Before uninstalling RCT3 always back up your My DocumentsRCT3. While the uninstall shouldn't affect any of your saves, it is always best to be safe rather than sorry.

Please note that it is best for you to use the autoupdater to update your game. If you have Wild you will have to install update two and three manually.

RCT3 UpdatesThe RCT3 updates should never be installed if you have any expansion pack already installed. Generally it is best to use the auto-updater to apply any updates, but if you prefer to do it manually refer to the list below.

Please note that all updates for the US version of RCT3 can be found here.
When applying updates it is important to have the correct version, to check your version number, right click on the RCT3.exe file (you will find it in the installation folder for RCT3) and select properties. The version number is also available if you look in the about window in game. To select the correct update compare the version number with the list below:

US VersionsUse the links provided to update RCT3 to the latest version:

RCT3 WildThe Wild updates should only be installed if you have the Wild expansion. The Wild updates will work with any territorial version. Note that Wild automatically includes both Update 3 for RCT3 and the Soaked update.

There are 3 Wild updates, Wild Update 1 addresses an issue causing excessive slowdown at night. Wild Update 2 fixes a problem with the auto-updater.
