Share This Post

Roller Coaster Rush is a “coaster-building” game mixing in kinetic gameplay with card drafting and auction mechanics. Each game, players create their very own working plastic roller coasters. Start by bidding on the best coaster parts, then flip on your engineer cap and use physics to build the best coaster you can.

The more twists and drops the marble makes it through without stalling, the more points you score. Bid cleverly and harness gravity to create the awesomest coaster and win! Once you’ve become a coaster-building wiz, you can add Showstopper cards for an advanced challenge.
