What version of the ATI videocard drivers are installed?

Have a look at the FAQ (http://www.frontier.co.uk/games/rct3/faq.html#_Will_my_PC_run_RCT3?)

Other than that, I would email whoever made the game.

Wikipedia says

"There have also been complaints about the high-end graphic cards, computers and processors that are needed to run the game smoothly. Powerful machines are needed to render the parks in full detail without graphical slowdown or a reduction in frames per second. Especially large parks will put a significant amount of strain on even the fastest computers and processors. Some players cannot see water because their graphics cards cannot render it. The other games didn't need high end graphics cards, which made them accessible to more people"

Having said that it runs perfectly on my PC.
