Elements

{{{1}}}

Template documentation (for the above template, sometimes hidden or invisible)

This is a box used to hold data on the elements and inversions on a roller coaster. It floats to the left, and should be placed underneath the "Design" heading (==Design== in the source editor).

Usage[edit source]

Parameter {{{1}}} contains a bulleted list, formatted as such:

{{Elementbox|
*[[Chain lift]] hill
*{{foot|114}} tall [[vertical loop]]
*[[Dive loop]]
*[[Zero-g roll]]
*[[Cobra roll]]
*[[Block brake]]
*[[Interlocking corkscrews]]
*[[Tunnel]]
*[[Helix (element)|Helix]]
}}

For lists with a large number of entries, the parameter |wide=yes may be added to reduce the height of the box. Replace the first line with:

{{Elementbox|wide=yes|

For roller coasters with two tracks, format as follows:

{{Elementbox
|track1='''Track 1 name''':
*[[Helix (element)|helix]]
|track2='''Track 2 name''':
*[[Helix (element)|helix]]
*[[Helix (element)|helix]]
}}

Considerations[edit source]

This template can easily make an article look cluttered, especially if there are already images left-justified. For simple roller coasters, consider writing about the elements in the ==Design== section instead. Avoid using this template when the coaster only has one or two elements.
