I decided to try out making a real life rollercoaster with RCTW's new spline-based coaster builder (built during the Early Access period.)
It took me quite a long time due to combating bugs, but I finally completed it some 2 hours later.

It's really interesting to watch real life rides in the game. Thanks!

Thanks guys. I did a few slight modifications after that video (but included in the Stream workshop download.)

For those that are wondering, here is a link to a Wikipedia article on the rollercoaster I recreated:

Agreed. I was surprised at how well the coaster ran when compared to the real thing.
They've done pretty well on the coaster physics (despite what the Planet Coaster trolls would have you believe.)

As a resident of South East Queensland and someone who has been past Green Lantern many times (and went to White Christmas at Movie World recently (although I haven't actually ridden Green Lantern before) I say wow, you did a good job.
Do you plan to do any other coasters from Australian theme parks?

Thanks man!
I hadn't gone on the Green Lantern until after I made it in RCTW :)
It's pretty great!

I do want to make some more real life coasters.. Been short on free time but will post more when I make them.
You can follow my RCTW workshop uploads here if you want.
