Git Gud 084 - Making a chainlift that releases trains backwards!
Some real rollercoasters have a chainlift that pulls up a train, and then releases it backwards. In OpenRCT2, it is also possible to make a track that has this behavior! In order to do this, a small piece of chainlift is built on a hill. Right after this chainlift, the track is merged with a dinghy slide so the train gets pulled onto the dinghy slide track. Lower down on the track, the dinghy slide continues, but with a fully enclosed tube style track which bypasses the chainlift. After the chainlift has been bypassed, the dinghy slide merges with the coaster again with a normal open track. The video below does a better job at explaining this trick! It's a fun trick to use for a shuttle coaster, it sadly does not work for a reverse-incline launched shuttle coaster though as forward chainlifts don't work in this mode.
