A bobsled roller coaster , or bobsleigh in RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, is a type of steel roller coaster that has cars travel along a channel that aren't connected directly to the track but flow with it instead.


Track is a semi-circular channel, supported by tubular steel posts. Cars run on small wheels, and are free to take their own course along the track, guided only by the curvature and gradient of the channel.

Other Information

  • Track layout requires very careful planning, as cars can crash off the track at the crests of hills if going too fast.
  • Badly, in RCT2 Wacky World Expansion, Penguin Bobsleigh's designs are likely poor and prone to crash, although they were completely tested with blank trains. In real usage, adding even only 2 people can let the train fly off the track.
  • RCT 2 Black Death Ride is a heavy version of Bobsleigh that allow to build for very long run. Although this version has only 5 cars per train, running as traditional roller coaster does as well unlike other versions since those weight is light and adding guests can let them fly off easily. However, some designs for light version may not be passed when using as Black Death Ride either it will fly off or will be stuck on a crest due to not enough speed.
  • Flying Turns in RCT2 is a very big bobsleigh car that is heavy enough to run with short to medium crests but not good for very long run. This requires to build more careful as the train can easily fly off the track with less highest speed possible at the top of crests than original bobsleigh trains (26-28 mph while another is 30) and also the hill drops (30 mph while another is 40)

In Real Life

  • There are two companies that have made the multi-car version of the bobsled coaster. Mack Rides and Gerstlauer have both made over 20 bobsleds around the world and although no new bobsled has been built recently they are still among the most popular rides at their respective parks.
