Steel Mini Roller Coaster

From RollerCoaster Tycoon Wiki Wiki, the RollerCoaster Tycoon encyclopedia that anyone can edit.

This article is about the RCT1 variety. For the RCT2 and RCTC equivalents, see Junior Roller Coaster and Mini Roller Coaster.

The Steel Mini Roller Coaster is a roller coaster type in RollerCoaster Tycoon. It is a combination of the Junior Roller Coaster and the Mini Roller Coaster. For this reason, it was split in RollerCoaster Tycoon 2. This move has not been without controversy, as this roller coaster type is very cheap, easy to build and versatile. In addition, it's usually available at the start of RCT1 scenarios.

This coaster type was reintroduced in OpenRCT2, now called the Classic Mini Roller Coaster, in order to avoid confusion with the Mini Roller Coaster. Since the v0.4.1 release on July 4th, 2022, the Ladybird, Log, and Rocket vehicle types are available, with the Spinning Cars planned for future inclusion.


Track has steel running rails with cross-bracing. Supports are made of square section posts. Trains are held on the track by wheels above, below, and outside the running rails.

Other Information

  • Cheaper than other types of roller coasters, but can't be built as tall.
  • This ride is stylistically very similar to the Junior Roller Coaster in RCT2 and RCTC.
  • The Spinning cars cannot be used on tracks with banked curves.
  • OpenRCT2, unlike RCT2, supports importing Steel Mini track designs from RCT1. It also supports boosters on this ride type, which were added to the Junior Roller Coaster in RCTC.
    • If the user has RCT1 Deluxe linked to their OpenRCT2 installation, the Ladybird, Log, and Rocket vehicles will become available, mainly in RCT1 scenarios, although they can be added to custom scenarios or to the current game via the object selection feature. Otherwise, they will default to their RCT2 equivalents.
      • In the case of the Spinning Cars, though, they are currently not available, and so the Spinning Wild Mouse Cars are used in their place. However, unless the "Disable vehicle limits" cheat is active, the Spinning Wild Mouse Cars will always be locked to single cars.
