Coaster vary WIDELY in, generally, will run from about 2-3M for a cheap off-the-shelf mouse or similar ride to 25M for a custom Intamin...

Used, well, a Schmeck kiddie woodie last year went for 9K...

bill, not enough land, too much sense...:)

40 million for Revenge of the Mummy. This is really too open-ended in my opinion.

AVERAGE price, Ramblin and Giga. You can't get an average by just naming one. I've already shown him how to get his answer.

^no duh, I was just replying to another post, and I stated that if you have enough time to go on RCDB and average the price of hundreds of coasters, you have no life;)

And it was one of the best deals ever made! The materials for a Schmeck coaster for the price of a used car? How is that NOT a bargain?

No, RCDB lists 635 active roller coasters in the United States, 1375 US coasters total, 1773 operating worldwide, and 2937 total worldwide, if you want to spend your time averaging all of that, you are a freaking loser who needs to do better things with his life. Or contact Duane Marden and have him average the cost with the databases, that would be quicker and smarter, but there is no need to waste hours of your life just to be accurate.

Or you could do it yourself by writing a PHP script that will crawl through the RCDB pages and parse out costs for you.

Michael, if you want to go that far, you might as well crack into the server, and some of the coasters don't have costs provided... it would be an arduous task

Ramblin - Jacob asked the question. I [and others] gave him the method to get his answer. If he wants to spend the time getting an average its his business. You obviously have a life so why do you care?

A CoasterDynamix Dragon costs $500.00. A Rippin' Rocket will run you about $90 (last time I checked).

It's a "how high is up?" quesiton. There is no such thing as an average coaster.
