Other Information

The Suspended Monorail is similar to the Monorail, except much larger. It is a good choice for themed parks, particularly the futuristic kinds such as Future World. Its lower capacity and short trains make it not the most efficient choice, coupled with its maximum speed of 14 mph/22 kmh versus the Monorail's absolute top speed of 22 mph/35 kmh. However, its one advantage is a maximum height higher than the original Monorail, so it may be more advantageous in hilly terrain.
