So, what is your coaster top speed? Mine is 212 mph. It pulled 23 g's!

I got one up to 595 mph. Not realistic in the least, but I think that's about the max. If it goes faster, it misses the station.

wow, that's pretty good. I'm assuming you used a steel twister and launched lift hill?

Mine was 329 i used a launched lifthill all the way up and then went down and then back up and so forth until that speed

Actually, I used the DragonsIOA Trainer to change the lifthill speed to 1000 mph, and had a whole bunch of lift chains in the layout. Also had to make the trains really long (150 cars/train!) so it would catch the station brakes.

I think that the top speed in RCT is 575 MPH

Simfan - what you are claiming simply is not possible even with a trainer - you cannot have 150 cars per train and the rest of your claim is suspect as well.

Well, I did it. I could make another one for you guys, so I can prove that I can. Give me an hour.

Actually you can have 150 cars to a train but you must have a long circuit and it helps to have a launch otherwise they just go up the lift and down the first drop at lift speed.

Oooh, I never thought of a launch.

I apologize - I just checked it out - with DragonsIOA it does allow you to choose up to 200 cars per train - however when I tried it just now on a hypercoaster I had made, the graphics only appeared as 12 cars - do all 150 cars show up - I would like to see that.

Yeah, well, my fastest NON-trainer speed was 226 MPH.

This forum reminds me of danimation about a year ago. Anyway, my highest speed was 223 without LL and with a trainer

Using just launched lift hills, I think I got somewhere around 225 mph.

I made a Steel Corkscrew Coaster with a 40mph lift hillup to the 90th level of altitude with a trainer and I got 271 mph. I was very amazed!!!!
