Suspended Swinging Coaster

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

The Suspended Swinging Coaster is a suspended steel roller coaster where the cars swing as they travel through turns.


Track has a tubular steel spine, connected to the inside edges of tubular steel running rails. Supports are large tubular steel posts. Trains hang underneath the track, swinging freely from a chassis held on by wheels above, below and outside the running rails.

Other Information

  • A good Suspended Roller Coaster requires plenty of curves and helixes to provide the high lateral G's required to swing the cars.
  • Due to its very high natural nausea rating, it is highly recommended to place down benches, Handymen, and First Aid Rooms (if available) on and near the exit path of a Suspended Swinging Coaster, even in scenarios where guests prefer more intense rides and are more likely to have a high nausea tolerance.

In Real Life

The Suspended Swinging Coaster is based on Arrow's original suspended coaster design. This was the first instance of the Inverted Roller Coasters now popular among many parks around the world. It was first introduced in the 1980's as a prototype built by Arrow Dynamics with cars that swing around curves. Vekoma and B&M presently build inverted roller coasters with inversions and stationary cars.

The floorless vehicles for the coaster are based on Vekoma's suspended floorless vehicles manufactured for both their own designs and for pre-existing Arrow models.[1] These trains are perhaps most famously seen on Vampire at Chessington World of Adventures.
