A multi-tracked or racing roller coaster has more than one track placed side-to-side, allowing multiple trains to race each other.
Sometimes, multi-tracked roller coasters are set up to race each other. Some racing coasters are set up for one train to win. While for other coasters, its a matter of weight, how well brakes work, etc.
A Möbius loop roller coaster is a twin roller coaster that is built as a single connecting track, as opposed to two separate tracks. As a result, if the train leaves the left side of the station, it will arrive at the right side of the station.
There are only three möbius roller coasters operating today:
- Grand National at Blackpool Pleasure Beach
- Racer at Kennywood
- Max Adventures Master Thai at Mirabilandia
At first glance Twisted Colossus at Six Flags Magic Mountain appears to be a möbius roller coaster. However, it only has one station so each train always completes two laps, one on either side of the coaster.
