Welcome To Hell: Rollercoaster Tycoon Ride Takes 45 Years To Finish

Earlier this year, Rollercoaster Tycoon player Marcel Vos thought he’d pushed the game to its limits by building a ride that would take 12 years to complete. Turns out he was wrong, because he’s now built one that would take you 45 years — in real, actual human time — to get to the end of.

Appropriately called 45 Years in Hell, it’s a stage built around two core designs: firstly a very slow ride that drags you all across the map, and then an absolutely excruciating return trip done back, where a small incline right before the ride’s end sends you backwards at a fraction of the speed you arrived at.

That backwards leg is how the ride lasts for so long; previously, Vos had believed that you couldn’t travel in reverse for long periods of time, but it turns out that was a bug, not a feature, and once fixed he was able to start implementing his devious plans.

This was made in OpenRCT2, an open-source version of RollerCoaster Tycoon 2, which you can download here.
