AirCoaster is still the ONLY realistic 3D roller coaster simulator for the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad. If you love roller coasters and thrill rides, this is the app for you!
AirCoaster made iLounge's Top 100 Essential iPhone Apps list in 2009 and 2010.
The New York Times GadgetWise blog calls AirCoaster "particularly fun to play with."
Engadget.com says AirCoaster is "filled with fun ways to interact with the iPad." Take your own roller coasters for "a dizzying first-person ride."
AirCoaster has also been featured on touchArcade.com, the San Francisco Examiner, 148apps.com and more!
AirCoaster brings awesome 3D fun to your iPhone/iPod touch/iPad.
Create your own roller coaster tracks with our powerful yet easy to use multitouch 3D track editor. Use 1 finger to rotate, 2 to zoom and pan around, as you nudge and tweak each track segment to create the perfect ride. Once you are done, buckle up and ride your very own roller coaster!
AirCoaster's advanced simulation engine lets you create both regular and suspension/inverted roller coasters. Your roller coaster starts and stops at a station, just like in real life. You can even place up to 6 trains on the track at once for the maximum thrill level.
Don't want to create your own tracks? Go to the Community tab and download any of over tens of thousands of tracks. Interact with your favorite track creators, write on their walls, follow them, and more!
AirCoaster was a Featured App on the app store when the iPad launched and was also selected as a Staff Favorite for the iPad.

What's New in Version 1.5.4
Fixed lag issue by allowing users to turn "Better Graphics" on and off.
You can set horizontal to 0.0 in your segments to create all sorts of weird and glitchy tracks. Use at your own risk! :-P
Fixed crashes that occurred when switching between walls and profiles.
The track description length limit has been increased significantly.
NoLimits in your pocket
I absolutely love this app. Like NoLimits, the editor takes some getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, you'll be spending most of your spare time building roller coasters. No, the editor is not as easy to use as RCT or ThrillVille (for what it's worth, RCT2 is infinitely superior to both RCT3 and ThrillVille combined), nor is it as insanely flexible as the NoLimits, Scream Machines, and Hyper Rails editors. If you're looking for a coaster app that features prefabricated track pieces you plop into place, buy RollerCoaster Tycoon 2. Otherwise, grab this app. Trust me, it's worth it.
The community is somewhat paranoid, due to a certain subset of users creating fake accounts to troll legitimate users and illegitimately hack their tracks to the top of the Leaderboard. The bug that these users exploited has since been fixed, but new users are somewhat suspect, especially if they show any talent. I apologize for the misbehavior of my fellow users. If you're looking to showcase your tracks, just ask me to review them.
Astounding! Must Buy!
Best 99 cents I've spend on an app.
This app provides you with a wonderful editor in which you can design and ride your own roller coasters. It is a great tool to help with physics alongside with Ziconic's other coaster app, coasterphysics. The community provides a great experience as you can communicate with other users and learn from each other. At first the controls can be a little tricky to understand and work with, but once you join the community you can be guided by the advice of others and you will be helped along your journey to AC success! I highly recommend this app to anyone interested in physics, engineering, science, or anyone who just loves roller coasters! 5 stars. Must buy app!
Best Coaster Building app...but...
Air Coaster is really fun at first but then it gets old pretty quickly after that. As a coaster... Expert? (I know a ton about coasters) I can tell you there just is not much variety. Just Inverted and plain sit down with the same type of track.
For a few weeks I built about a dozen coasters and was having fun with it, but I realized all of them are pretty much the same. I am impressed at this app and it can be fun for people that don't really know there's so much more to the ones in real life compared to the ones in air coaster, but for now if I want to do coaster building I'll stick to NoLimits and rct3.
