December 2022 - Alpine Coaster Contest!

December 2022 - Alpine Coaster Contest!

Hey everyone!

A new coaster type was recently added to the game, which makes this a perfect opportunity to see people build it in a contest! I am of course talking about the alpine coaster! An alpine coaster is a very unique type of coaster, where guests ride in small vehicles along a track where guests have some control over the speed! Every guest in the game will have a certain speed at which they will ride the coaster, so you will probably have to somehow space out the trains so the ride doesn't get a big traffic jam somewhere along the track! These coasters are typically found in mountainous landscapes, as they will typically follow the terrain very closely!


  • Rule 1: You have to build an Alpine Coaster using the Alpine Coaster track!
  • Rule 2: You must use the OpenRCT2 official Alpine Coaster trains!
  • Rule 3: The deadline for this contest will be on the 27th of December at 19:00 CET!
  • Rule 4: For this contest, you are not allowed to use custom scenery or rides in your park, with the exception of custom recolorable versions of standard in-game scenery! You are also allowed to use a custom palette if you want. Please deselect all unused custom objects in the object selection before sending in the save file!
  • Rule 5: For this round, the maximum map size will be 2000 tiles! You can change the length of the map edges to your preferred size, for example 20 x 100 tiles, 25 x 80 tiles, or 40 x 50 tiles. All tiles within the selected map size count towards the limit, even if you paint them black.
  • Rule 6: There is no limit to the amount of opened rides you can have in the park.
  • Rule 7: Have fun!

Teaming up with someone is allowed! However, if you team up with someone, you cannot team up with that person again for the next 2 Ride Creation Contests! This way we don't see the same people together every time!

How to join

  • Step 1: Join my Discord server. Discord is completely free!
  • Step 2: Build your map and decorate it!
  • Step 3: When you are done with your contest entry, go on Discord, and send the save file to me in a Private Message. For the name of the save file, I want you to simply use the name that you use on Discord. For example, if your discord name is Begs, for the save file name, use Begs.park. After you have sent the save file to me, I will look if it follows the rules, and I will check for anything you can still improve. You can resubmit your entry until the deadline of the round, even if I have already accepted it. Please deselect all unused custom objects before sending in the save file!
  • Step 4: Submit a story for others to read in the voting poll!

After the deadline has passed, I will put up a voting poll with all the entries. In this voting poll, everyone who is a member on my Discord, including you, will be able to rate all the other entries, and leave a short review.

When the voting period is over I will announce the results in a Youtube video!

Good luck, and have fun!
