Designing your own perfect roller coasters, full of every dip bend and loop you want, is integral to the computer game "Roller Coaster Tycoon." Any of your favourite personal designs can be saved and used in other parts of the game, or even shared online. Using custom coasters from another file can save a player some time when building a new theme park, though be aware it will cost money for the parts and scenery in career mode.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Create a roller coaster in any mode of the game. Double-click on the coaster style you wish to build in the "Coaster and Ride Track Browser" labelled in the corner of your screen, then click "build custom design" to begin.

  2. 2

    Experiment with the "Track Ride Construction Panel," laying the track until you have the coaster you wish to save. Double-click on a track piece in the menu to add it to the front end of your coaster. To finish the coaster, make sure your track leads back to the starting piece of the design. Click on "Auto complete" to automatically connect the last pieces. If you are in career mode, watch the money each piece costs so you don't go bankrupt.

  3. 3

    Place an entrance and an exit on your coaster by clicking on the desired place on your screen.

  4. 4

    Click on your coaster to open the ride control panel. Click on the information button and choose "save" to save your coaster.

  5. 5

    Load any saved coasters by clicking on the same coaster design in the "Ride Construction Panel" and clicking "build save ride." Place them on your map in the desired location by double-clicking on the location.
