This Rollercoaster Tycoon Ride Takes 210 Days to Finish

You must be at least this patient to ride this rollercoaster.


In the original Rollercoaster Tycoon, there were many ways to kill, maim, and torture your park's guests. You could drown them in a pool of water, trap them in a cage of fences, or send them flying off the tracks of their favourite rollercoaster. But none of them seem quite as bad as a rollercoaster that takes 3000 years to finish just one ride.

Originally reported by Killscreen, a Tumblr user posted footage of a rollercoaster that lasts 3000 in-game years. According to the Tumblr post, it would take 210 real-time days to watch one ride of this slow-moving behemoth.

This isn't the first Rollercoaster Tycoon ride designed to take an obscene amount of time to complete. Mr. Bones Wild Ride takes about 70 real-time minutes, and The Wheel of Life and Death will have your guests waiting 60 hours for their turn on the ride.

A new Rollercoaster Tycoon game is in the works, but was recently delayed to next year following its first beta. It was delayed prior to that, so the team could address complaints and improve the theme park simulator's graphics.
