not sure if i'm going to join, but could you post the speeds in km/h.
I could calculate myself, but to make sure everybody uses the same limits i think it's better if they are already in the rules.
It wouldnt be the first time that some people had miss calculated.

Yeah do that because people intuitively round differently.

This is over my exam period, but I'll try and fit an hour or so in during the late evenings when I'm not doing much anyway. I'll do it for some fun :) Count me in!

It's been official CoasterCrazy contest policy for years that an inversion is any piece of track with banking over 155 degrees in either direction.

Of course! Here are the speeds converted to km/h. They are rounded up or down depending on the numbers after the decimal. The first post has also been edited to convey this information.

35 mph-56 km/h
4 mph- 6 km/h
7 mph- 11 km/h
50 mph- 80 km/h



To answer the question about the inversion. Anything over a 155 degree bank is considered an inversion.

If anyone has any other questions just ask!

That's brilliant news Meta, I'm sure your more than aware that a new member won't have been on CoasterCrazy for years to see this contests! Having them in the initial post gives great clarity and makes sure everyone knows the rules and not just those who have been here a long time.

I was stating it in a simple, matter of fact manner (for those very same people who wouldn't otherwise know) because it originally wasn't stated in the rules (it has now been edited to reflect this information). Furthermore I didn't write the initial post so I don't see how it's relevant to my post.

I'm assuming the station building (but not the track) can extend outside the boundaries?
