I made an awesome inverted coaster the other night! The layout is great!!! It is a little fast through some of the inversions but hey it was my first.... below are the stats and layout description. I'll post the coaster and maybe screen shots soon!

Height: 150 feet
Speed: 99km/h
Inversions: 7

Layout:
-Steep curving 150ft drop (through cobra roll)
-Large vertical loop (around lift hill)
-Banked turn
-Zero-G Roll (over station)
-Immelman
-Airtime hill (over 2nd banked turn)
-Slanted loop (through first vertical loop)
-Cobra roll (around drop)
-Second banked turn
-Corkscrew (over station)
-Third banked turn
-Vertical loop
-Banked turn (through immelman)
-Single helix (around opposite direction)
-Brakes into station

Sound good? It's a pretty compact ride too.. I need colors and a name for it.. Tell me what you think by the sound of it, i'll post pics asap!

I just added another helix through the second vertical loop (had to slow things down at the end) Even better! I wish this thing had excitement ratings on it like on RCT, then it would be the best game

Here's a screenshot of the 150ft drop through the cobra roll into the vertical loop around the lift and slanted loop! :)

Here are the 2 helixes through the loop and immelman (crappy immelman might I add but hey it's my first!).. If you look in the background you can see the other elements

Dude... sorry, i've been busier than ever (as it feels) and i've never done it before. Took me long enough to get those stills posted.

I agree coasterfreak! I wanna know what i'm downloading.. I made the layout as descriptive as possible. Then i went snapshot crazy and took a ton of pics.. (I thought 5 were good enough though hehe)

Any other comments? suggestions? Tell me what you think

Transitions are kinda rough, it makes a good fantasy coaster but realistic wise its not very good. And the station is kinda underground.

lol yes the station is kinda underground :( I started it off to be a sit down... but then I changed it ...thats why. The only rough transition is the corkscrew & turn into it.. i tried

Good coaster....but there are several desgin flaws as you and the others already mentioned, i have noticed the end seats run into the supports from time to time. The name would be The Mangler since its an ideal name for a great ride with its flaws. Improve and fix the flaws then you got yourself a winner! ;)

I've tried HOURS on that ---- corkscrew... i'm through with that... I know it's horriblely rough.. but deal. Maybe i'll throw on some breaks somewhere to slow it down cuz its FAST but still i like it :)


And the station in the ground problem LOL i'll fix that..


Hey professor... where does the train hit the supports???
