Building a roller coaster Edit

Each coaster has a specific type or set of rails, drives, breaks, rolls and motors that can be used with it. After players pick a base, only the options available for that specific coaster will be shown in the builder. Players will be able to lift, lower, twist and turn each piece to get it where they want it to be or the direction it should lead to. Once all the pieces are in place and all that is left is to connect back to the station, players can use the 'Autocomplete' and the game will attempt to complete the coaster railing for them.

The price for each piece will be on the right side of the options as well as color choices. There are four sections in the color scheme that can be changed using the color palette.


Settings for the stations track

Each station will need an entry and an exit gate to the station, as well as a queue area.

There are also settings that can be changed for the ride:

  • Auto Tunnel
  • Angle Snap (degrees)
  • Camera - changes the current viewpoint
  • Bank Pivot Height - Station
  • Entry Speed - Station
  • Exit Speed - Station

Blueprints Edit

Blueprints are coasters that only need an entrance and exit path to be able to use. There are multiple blueprinted coasters available in the game. Players are also able to create their own custom blueprints from their self-created coasters, allowing them to share their designs with other players via the Steam Workshop . The cost of the blueprint depends on the materials used to build it. Players need to ensure they have available room for a blueprint coaster and that there are no objects in the way or it will not place. Sometimes raising the height of the coaster can help.  

In-game Blueprint pre-designed coasters include:
