Lift is a transport ride introduced in RollerCoaster Tycoon 2. It is renamed as the Elevator in RollerCoaster Tycoon 3.


It is a typically short ride that only can go up and is useful for transporting guests up and down vertical edges and also lets them access underground rides as well. The Elevator can reach a minimum of 30ft and a maximum of 570ft (RCT2 sizes on standard height of ground)
