Twister Roller Coaster

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

The Twister Roller Coaster is a large steel roller coaster capable of complex inversions. The Twister coaster first appears in the Added Attractions/Corkscrew Follies expansion of RollerCoaster Tycoon, and is included in the Loopy Landscapes expansion, as well as in RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 and RollerCoaster Tycoon 3. In Added Attractions/Corkscrew Follies and Loopy Landscapes, the ride is called the Steel Twister Roller Coaster, and includes inverting and non-inverting train types. In RCT2 and RCT3, each train type is listed as separate roller coaster types—the Twister Roller Coaster, Floorless Roller Coaster, and Stand-Up Twister Roller Coaster—and the non-inverting trains are grouped into a different ride, the Hyper-Twister Roller Coaster. In OpenRCT2, the Twister coaster train variants are combined into a single roller coaster type.

Construction[edit]

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

In Roller Coaster Tycoon 3, there seems to be no height limitation for this coaster, allowing for it to be more freely built. The developers of the game probably forgot about height limitations.
