Boosters are a track component found in RollerCoaster Tycoon 1, RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic and OpenRCT2. As the name implies, it boosts the speed of the vehicle. The maximum speed is configurable in the same way one can configure brake speeds.


  • RollerCoaster Tycoon 1 supported boosters on the Looping Roller Coaster and the Corkscrew Roller Coaster. They were configurable up to 107 km/h.
  • RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 removed the component entirely. As a result track designs with boosters from RollerCoaster Tycoon 1 cannot be imported. The ID was repurposed for the Spinning Control Track of the Wild Mouse.
  • RCT Classic, despite being based on RCT2, supports boosters on the Giga Coaster, Twister Roller Coaster and Junior Roller Coaster. It does not support boosters on the Looping or Corkscrew roller coaster.
  • OpenRCT2 supports boosters on the Looping, Corkscrew, Giga, Steel Twister, Junior and Vertical Drop Roller Coasters, and imports RCT1 and RCTC saves with boosters correctly.
