Planet Coaster is about to get a free summer update filled with new rides, customizable wall panels, and fireworks shows that you control.

If you've been building the them park of your dreams in Planet Coaster, here's some good news for you: there's a new summer update coming for the game, and it's completely free. The previously released spring update brought vandals and pickpockets, as well as the CCTV system to spot them, to the game. Now the summer update is bringing even more new content.

First up, you'll be able to control your own fireworks shows. You'll use a "Display Sequencer" to design the shows, and you can set them to custom music tracks, like this:

Also coming in the update customizable wall panels and screens that let you show off your own images and videos. There's also a new "Flatride Sequencer" to give you more control over your rides.
