Power (power) The power consumption of the roller coaster, usually measured in kW. 100 kW

Inversions (inversions) The number of times the track goes upside-down (not the rider). If the number of inversions in the track and the number experienced by the rider differs, both should be entered. Do not use this parameter on shuttle roller coasters with different number of "track" and "rider" inversions, use the following two parameters instead. 0
Track inversions (track_inversions) These two parameters are only used on shuttle roller coasters where the number of physical inversions in the track and the number of times riders go upside-down are different. 3
Rider inversions (rider_inversions 6
Steepest drop (angle) The steepest angle at which riders drop at. Degrees symbol is added automatically. 90
