I have been experimenting with different coasters in RCT3, and even though guests usually don't like the shuttles, I have created some that the guests just love, though the lines are quite long. I wonder if anyone else has attempted to take non shuttle coaster designs and make them run like a shuttle.
Here are some rides that can run as a shuttle.
The coster ball. I make mine with very tall camel back hills going forawd and backwards out of the station. If you time it right, the cars will flip mutliple times. Set it to make 4 cycles, and the cars slow and create flippy air time. The only problem with a coaster ball shuttle, is it can only take 8 riders at a time.
The air powered coaster. Again, one hill and vertical going out of the station the same backwards out of the station. I set mine to the max speed, with droops of over 200 feet. But that is as high as you can go.
Turbo bike coaster. They love this one! LIM launch as crazy as you want it going forward, with a vertical spike going out the back or vertical camel back hills. The more loopy, the more they like it.
Storm Runner. Again camel back hills going to and from the station, loops take up more land space, so I mostly build out and back. I have also built one that is just one giant loop, (upright on top) and set the speed and trips at 6 or 7. The ride makes it over the top, and then goes back and forth the rest of the ride.
You can also build the looping coaster as crazy both ways as you want it. Impulse shuttle in both directions. I think one of those would be a cool ride for MA. Heck I would even use my RCT3 desings as a model to build one. Low to the ground hills and inversions, and call it insanity.
I didn't do it! I swear!!
I think screen shots would be useful here
On the subject of shuttles, if you take an inverted shuttle, using reverse-incline launch, and a low launch speed, you can create a full circuit invert that runs trains backwards. only problem is that you can't use block brakes due to the intended function of the coaster.
