Parkmaker is a title that can be earned by players with superior ability in RollerCoaster Tycoon. It was first introduced in 2002 when an initial crew of Parkmakers were selected by the administrators of New Element. In 2010 the traditional administrator chosen Parkmaker group was replaced by a point-based system, but has made a return in 2013 using three different levels: NE Parkmaker, Elite Parkmaker and Legendary Parkmaker.nedesigns
NE Parkmakers are the young and ambitious players who are on a persistent path to Elite Parkmaker. These players are capable of creating parks that distinguish themselves from the masses but aren't quite up to par with the elite players at New Element. These are the players to keep an eye on as they tend to be the most productive and rapidly improving their skills.
To become an NE Parkmaker, a player must complete at least 80% of their park and complete one of the following 3 tasks with that park:
- Win a Design accolade with a score of 80% or higher
- Win a Gold accolade with a score of 80% or higher
- Win a Spotlight accolade with a score of 80% or higher
Current NE Parkmakers
Players who emerged from NE Parkmaker because they were able to finish parks and improve their game when it was already at a high level. These players are rare cases of either extremely gifted players, or those who practice a lot in quite before they send in a significant park.
To become an Elite Parkmaker, a player must complete at least 80% of their park and complete one of the following 3 tasks with that park:
- Win a Design accolade with a score of 85% or higher

- Win a Spotlight accolade with a score of 85% or higher
