Other Information

  • Cheap and easy to build, but the track layout needs to be designed carefully, otherwise the cars can fly straight off the track on the hills. In RCT3 however, crashes are not possible.
  • This ride is called Wooden Side-Friction Roller Coaster in the original RollerCoaster Tycoon.

In Real Life

There is one operating instance of this ride left in North America in the state of Pennsylvania (Leap the Dips), it is currently the oldest operating roller coaster in the world.
