The Rollercoaster Tycoon series is a highly addictive one and it’s likely you’ve sunk a fair few hours into the games if you’re a fan. You have to be a pretty dedicated fan to want to tackle some of the best coasters out there, and you have to be a REALLY dedicated fan to take on the latest creation from YouTuber Marcel Vos [via PCGamersN].
Vos recently shared a clip on his YouTube channel, which shows off the highlights of what’s officially the longest in-game roller coaster ever created.
So, how long does it take to ride? 12 whole years. And just to clarify – that’s not in-game years – that’s 12 years of your actual life on a rollercoaster.
Kinda cruel right? Also kind of an interesting way to kill off a load of Sims if there were to ever be a crossover.
Check out the video below to see Vos explain just how the coaster was created. (Spoiler: Vos is clearly a Maths genius).

So, has Vos actually completed the level? Well…no, apparently not, as it’s deemed impractical to actually test IRL.
One keen-eyed commenter on the video did note that the timing does add up, saying: “RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 is from 2002, this video was posted in 2018
“2018 – 2002 = 16 years
“A human can go fine with roughly 6 hours of sleep. There are 24 hours in a day. 6/24 = 25%
“25% of 16 years = 4 years
“16 years – 4 years = 12 years …..
“Precisely the amount of time needed to test the train if you wanted to be present during the entire event and pausing it while you sleep.
“Nice try attempting to convince us that its not practical to test it in real time, but now we know that you actually did it – and only posted the video in 2018 after you finished the real-time testing of your creation. I’ve caught you red handed mate.”
me: I really need to start going to bed earlier so im less tired
also me: *watching a 10 min video at 01:15am on how someone made a rollercoaster in RCT2 last 12 real life years*
