TCE partnered with Aquatic Development Group to provide designs for these mountain coasters. Typically constructed at ski areas with existing infrastructure, TCE first provided concept alignments with track lengths and basic vertical information. Once the concept was approved by the client, TCE provided a complete three dimensional track design by “clicking together” the individual track pieces in 3D. Using this method, we are able to provide an accurate estimate of the number of track pieces needed and vertical data for each track piece. This 3D model also allows us to produce a video of the ride.
Individual ride characteristics vary based on the available terrain, but slopes vary from 6-25%, and the track can be up to 25 feet above the ground and can include switchbacks with banked turns and “360s” where the track turns 360 degrees and travels under itself with speeds up to 25 mph.
