A comprehensive guide to the excitement rating on rollercoasters in Rollercoaster Tycoon 2

Recommended Posts

Hmmm... I was reading the guide and it seems like the air-time bonuses apply to roller coaster types that normally have lap bar restraints, and ones that don't usually have over-the shoulder restraints.

How does multiple stations factor into the excitement (and intensity) calculation?

It doesn't do anything. It might affect other stats and indirectly affect the EIN ratings, but it doesn't directly change them.

Hm.

This makes coasters with multiple stations a bit odd, right? Peeps will think going up a chain hill and then getting of at a second station to be fun, since the next ride section is great. And they'll be scared away from long coasters with multiple stations, since the total amount of intensity-increasing sections will be high even while each section is well-designed. But I guess that's always been a quirk of the game.

Unfortunately, mobius coasters don't do well for this reason. If you have 2 sections with both 5 inversions and 10 drops, the total will be 10 inversions and 20 drops and that will almost always be way too much. 

You can take advantage of it by doing something like this. The small sections between the stations have the same rating as the long section and guests will pay the same for it. You can make a lot of money if enough guests want to ride it.
